Sorry (especially to my SP8) that I've been terrible about getting pictures up & stuff. I think Verizon isn't charging me until my contract is technically up (the 15th), which I realized also means that I will have to get myself a new camera, either in another phone, or a standalone (gasp!). I haven't had my own camera in years. Mostly because I'm not much of a picture-taker, and I never feel like the little use I would get out of one would justify its purchase. But, now I feel lost without one! I really like having images in my posts.
So, I'll keep y'all updated on that. For now, a bit of a catchup post, again:
Wednesday after work, I finally finally attended the North End stitch n' bitch group!! I had been meaning to do that since last summer, and I'm so glad I went -- I really liked it! I was, however, extremely nervous (meeting one new person at a time makes me anxious enough!), and so I was a bit awkward until I settled in a bit...and, truth be told, I was kinda nervous the entire time, worried that I wasn't liked or wasn't making a good impression. The girls there are great! The group is a lot younger than I'd expected (the spinning group at Mind's Eye regularly welcomed a slightly older demographic), and they were exactly the kind of women I love to hang out with -- crafty, funky, fun. I would like to return again next week; we'll see if I get up the nerve. :)
In other knitting news, I finished up Dan's socks & am almost done with one of a pair for my father. (Oh, how I wish I could post pictures...!)
Thursday evening, Jess came over & we went out for Ernesto's pizza & then came back here to watch Memento, which was awesome. I have had that movie on my to-watch list forever, and even after such a long wait it did not disappoint. I was even quick enough to catch a point that Jess said she hadn't even noticed the first time she'd watched! (And, as a bonus, the guy who plays Teddy also voiced the penguin in Olive, the Other Reindeer, which is a fantastic holiday movie.) I'm so glad I got to finally hang out with Jess again and watch the movie. Awesome.
This weekend is Dan's & my 2nd anniversary (of dating). We're not quite sure what we have planned yet, but I'm sure I'll fill you in on details maybe early next week.
Hopefully by then, I'll also have a camera. Hmpf.
