Things that I’ve learned in the last 24 hours

  • I get easily annoyed when people say they’ll do one thing, but then don’t.
  • I also get easily annoyed when I get woken up and I will promptly fall back asleep, regardless of my best (or worse) intentions.
  • People on the internet are weird. Proof 1: Making cozies for eggs. Proof 2: Making cozies for thermoses. Pointless and overpriced.
  • I’ve gotten a lot better at knitting while doing something else (i.e. texting, watching Dollhouse, reading articles online).
  • My psychology professor purposely puts giant photos that not resized on the slides on purpose in order to make the download time for set of slides be as long as humanly possible. 43mb is not an appropriate size for a Powerpoint presentation that only has 25 slides.
  • When in doubt, ask. When that doesn’t work, throw a fit. (Thanks to my sister for that lesson.)
  • My sister, because she is ill, plays a lot on her Nintendo DS while she stays home from work. This also means that she can go ‘OMG, it’s [insert Pokemon name here]!!’ when I show her a new pattern I find. I can’t even pronounce it and she can a) name it, b) tell me what it does and c) tell me what level hers is at.
  • People will make crochet and knit patterns for just about anything (read the one about the egg cozies, mmkay?). This includes swimwear. Even if it’s a really bad idea given that knitted and crocheted swimwear, when wet, won’t be doing a whole lot anymore.
  • If you do something with beads and a needle two nights ago (Thursday) and you’re pretty sure that you cleaned up everything and you don’t get a beading needle jabbed in yourself anywhere at all when you wake up Friday morning – this does not mean that you won’t wake up, in pain, on Saturday with a beading needle underneath a finger nail. Just saying.
  • Yarn needles are cheap for a reason. You buy a package of 3 and you will one day lose all three – even if you never take them out of your house and they always travel between two rooms and you’re absolutely sure you know exactly where they used to be… You will lose them. And you will try to ‘make’ one out of what you have a home to avoid leaving the house since you’re untangling a mess of yarn.
  • Some things are not appropriate to say on Twitter. Even if it’s really damn funny and you’ll go and read your TweetFeed and end up choking on your tea.
  • When a family member asks you if you want a kitten and then you eagerly say yes, the appropriate thing for that family member to say is “Oh, well So-and-so’s cat is having kittens, I’ll get one for you!” not “Why don’t you go to the pound then?”
  • Waiting for people to have time to talk to you is a waste of time, overall. And I’m not going to do it again.

    I hope it wasn’t my tweets that made you choke! Then again it might have been. SORRY!

    Egg cozies? Seriously? I’m currently face palming. =_=

    I know what you mean by being injured by supplies it happens to me a lot.

    For some reason this made me smile. Perhaps because you wrote it so cleverly. 🙂
    But cozies for eggs and thermoses? That IS rather ridiculous.

    I do the pokemon one. I ony watched one series of Pokemon and not it’s biggest fan, but I can tell you what one I have got, or haven’t got, and what level it is at. It must be something subliminal which enables that power.

    I agree with Heather, this made me smile. A lot. x

    Haha I’ve spit things out in response to Tweets before. I agree with that one.

    Also did you know that swimwear used to be knitted and crochetted a long time ago before suit material? I don’t know why anyone would use it now but it did exist back when my grandmother and great grandmother were children.

    My brother almost bought me a pokemon game and I was like NO, I am not 10 years old. Your sister sounds like she needs to get out more.

    Something should not be knitted!
