5 days until "speak like a pirate day"
So for the next 5 days ( until Sept 19th) in addition to my usual chatter, there will be updates to get ready for Speak like a Pirate Day. The first thing a person needs to know is their pirate name. I'm Mad Mary Kidd. There's something warm and fuzzy to being a psychotic isn't there?
So Nascar is at New Hampshire today. The first race in the chase for the championship. Of course tony has another bad day. Made contact with the 70 in the pits ( ironic he'll own that car next year huh?) So he has to come back in, ends up near the back. Then he gets caught speeding in the pits, has a penalty ends up a lap down. So right now Jimmie F'ng Johnson is in the front, and I find myself rooting for Biffle. can you believe that? The 49ers are losing in the second quarter. The Raiders won, the giants won. Thank God the jets are losing. Ugghhhh. I'm going to start needing valium on the weekends soon! On the plus side my daughter's high school football team won 64 to 0 yesterday.
On the knitting side. I actually didn't do much all week. I did a few rows of the ripple 'ghan. did a couple rows of another market bag, but I am not happy with that and may frog it to start over. I still haven't finished seaming the red/white/blue 'ghan. I did finish one of my lacey anklets this morning and have just cast on the second. I need to pick an animal and make my amiguri for my animal swap for the msn knitting and crochet group's swap. I don't think I'm doing any more swaps until after Christmas. I need to work on other things.
The rest of this month is going to be pretty busy. monday night, there are 2 meetings we need to attend for Angel. Curt is going to the meeting at the library for the Global trip to Ecquador next summer. I'm going to the board meeting for the fencing team. Angel has an away meet for tennis, so I'll be at that until I have to leave to make my meeting. next weekend angel has a retreat. I also have to take her shopping for an outfit for her confirmation. Saturday, there wll be a party for her at a local japanese hibachi restaurant. Sunday ARCA is racing at NJ Motorsports park in SOUTH Jersey. So we'll be leaving the house around 4am. Curt's bowling wed and sat nights. Deep breath!!
My sister and sister in law are making me nuts! neither one wanted to go out to eat after the confirmation ceremony, because it started at 7:30 so it would be " too late ". My brother is flying in from California and has to fly back out Sat night because he has a big meeting Monday morning. So We made reservations for 1pm on Saturday. Then S-I-L starts whining she doesn't want to drive "all the way out here" by herself and if she rides with my F-I-L she wants hm to leave early with her. Now after my sister, wanted SIL to find a date so she could bring her "friend" and we made reservations for her and her "friend", she calls me and says she may not be able to go on Saturday because they are doing an inventory and audit at work, and can we meet her for breakfast! AARRRRRGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Ok, sports update. Biffle won, Tony worked his way up to an 8th place finish. So now F'ng johnson and Edwards are tied for 1st place and Tony is up from 8th to 7th. But there are only 9 races left. Thank God for knitting! Or i'd have an ulcer already. The 49ers work their way up to tie the game and send it into overtime. They actually won by a Field Goal - May need knitting and Valium and Nexium and Prilosec by December!
