lookin' good, joyuna!!!
at orientation today i found out i don't get paid until halloween.
good thing i'm not one for dressing up. it's funny, though, because i absolutely LOVE costumes, especially period and fantasy/scifi stuff. until i come up with the absolutely perfect Time Lady costume complete with Scarf (which is knitting up nicely
), i would probably just stick with dressing like Rose. all i would really need is her Wrist Warmers. i could probably afford those since, oh yeah. i forget to mention this. i helped out the sweetest 1st grade teacher in the whole world for 3 weeks when her assistant hurt her back (stress fractures in her spine an hour and a half into the school year). my mom (who teaches at the same WONDERFUL school) brought home an envelope yesterday to me from that wonderfully sweet teacher. I GOT GIFTED!!!!!
$25 at one of my LYSs!!!! i could not believe it. you know how when you get excited sometimes you shake as you breathe? that's what i was doing. just like when i walked out onto the lot at the dealership and saw my TARDIS.
so anyway, i have plenty to get yarn for the Wrist Warmers. well, if they have the right color. i'm also considering using it for part of the yarn for my first sweater. of course, i haven't decided quite decided which one i want to start with (from IK, of course).
one more thing - my brother should be home sometime within the next 30 minutes!!!
i just hope i get to spend some time with him before he flies to okinawa.
UPDATE: he's home!!!!!
