Just Me Playing Around

So in addition to all the other changes going on in my life, I felt it was time to get a new phone.
The old one was having issues, and the boybot and I tend to depend on text messaging (it's just so damn handy..."honey, please pick up milk"..."I'm off work early and will pick you up at the train station"..."I think my pancreas is angry with me" many important things). I guess phones will only take being dropped, stepped on, chewed on, etc. so much before they decide to strike back at their abusers in the form of showing only half the screen, randomly shutting off and, my personal favorite, setting off non-existent alarms at 3 a.m.
Yep. Time to go. And since boybot is on his 3rd phone this year, I am feeling good about scoping out a new one on eBay.
But alas...I let myself be drawn in by powers as great as any the devil has...I got a crackberry. AND I LOVE IT!!
So that is where this post comes in. I have discovered that I can post from my phone. I could have with my old phone had it not hated me. But, well, there was the whole "it hated me" thing. Kinda defeats the purpose.
And I guess that is all there is to it. Now let's see what happens when I hit send...

For Many Happy Feeties

I don't know why, but lately I have been on a little bit of a sock kick., that wasn't even intentional.

I am not entirely sure why, but socks have been a bit of an obsession lately. Mayhaps it is because they are so wee. I finished the baby blankie for one of my co-workers a few weeks back (and, as a side note, she gave birth to a beautiful little boy last saturday afternoon). I was really happy with how it turned out:

But good lord did it take much more thought than I had hoped (damn lacy bits followed by damn cable-y bits).

I also finished up a couple of scarves (yes, when it is 30 degrees outside, this is the perfect time to knit scarves, dammit).

And then the sock rampage began:

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pattern for these baby socks. (Ok, 18 mo - 2 years...close enough to baby.) They took about 2 days on my daily commute to do. So great. Thinking I will have to make up a few pairs before the colder weather hits. (Yes, I am cruel and evil and already considering the colder weather...fak off.)

Anywho, I am now deciding what I want to do with the lovely halloween-y yarn that I picked up on my honeymoon. I am thinking maybe monkey. I don't know yet.

For those who haven't seen Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog...see it. SEEEIIITTTT!!!! I have a great big, fat and juicy hard on for NPH - come on, how can you not love this:

Now go...waste away your life watching internet shows...go, do it now...

I, however, am off to knit.

Oh, and maybe pack a little. :S Maybe.
