First Business Trip Ever!!!

Yes, that's right! I'm flying out to Ft. Washington PA next Tuesday for my first ever business trip! I have to say my co-workers over there are wonderful, and I can't wait to meet them! We talk every single day over the phone and usually IM as well.
Then on Friday night Stacey is coming down from New Haven to spend Friday night and Saturday with me! YAY! *does happy dance*

I'm also getting my new work computer while I'm in PA, and my new work phone. When I come back I will start the set up to work from home. Anywhoo, back to work. Hopefully I can get some pictures up after next week of my trip!

Hi! I got a job!

So. . . . after a very very very veeeeerry vvverreeererery long struggle with permanent employment. I. Have. A. Job.

Job people!!!! We're talking 401k. We're talking health insurance!! We're talking vacation time. PAID vacation time. We're talking I'm still hourly and going to be making oodles of OT (for now). We're talking that I CAN SUPPORT MY FIBER HABIT!!!!

I've also moved. From big to small and I can't be more happy! Only bummer thing is that the downstairs guy smokes and it comes up the vent. (He's not suppose to smoke. I don't understand why he thinks I will not notice!) So most of the yarn is staying in the Rubbermaid bins until I get a good air purifier.

I will have pictures up soon when I can. I have several things on the needles, but it might take a while. I'm really busy with work. This is the "crazy" time of the year for what I do (I've been doing it since last Dec).

In fact I have to get back to work :( But there you are! Positive news. Been a long time comin' people!

YES!! We have a camera!!

I love my friend A. A rules. A gave me a camera, just because. I'm not sure that A realizes I will be using said camera to post knitting as much as I can. . . when I'm around someone else's computer. Unfortunatly, I have not had a chance to take many pictures. I also have to get a memory card for the camera, but I did take some pictures. . .

BEHOLD!!! The Hanzo Hat

A little history about the Hanzo hat. This weekend is No Brand Con in Eau Claire Wisconsin. No Brand Con is a Japanese Anime convention. At this con they play a horridly horrible movie from Japan called "Hanzo the Razor". It's a movie that was made in the 70's about a Samuri cop during the Edo period (mid 1800's). Its horrid. Its a classic. Every time I go I take some pretty clashly Noro yarn (its japanese. . . get it?!?!) and make a awful hat to go with an awful movie.
I will have more pictures later. . .because it's also my Mom's 60th birthday tomorrow and we are having a big party on Saturday. Fam pics coming up!

One last shot I have for you today is my kitty cat Fraggle.

I -swear- I'll get a camera soon!

I know this is a boring non-picture knit/emotional crap dumping blog. I have soooo many cool things I'm working on and no way to show them off unless I beg and plead a relative/friend for use of a camera. But that isn't the only stumbling block. I have no personal computer of my own. That's not as bad of a problem as no digital camera (as you can tell!) Yes, it does put a crimp in the writing time, but oh well. I also don't have an Internet connection at home either, so it's pretty amazing I get up what I do!
Christmas was fabulous, only due to the fact that I was (and currently am) still employed. How long this will last? No one really knows for sure. I am working on one major lead for a permanent job at this time, but I don't want to get my hopes up.
I also have been pretty sick and finally went to the Dr on Tuesday for a sinus infection I have been carrying around since right after Christmas. You know it's bad when I go to the Dr, since I don't have health insurance. I'm almost feeling "back to normal" as well. That's a really good thing since I need to be on my toes for the current contract I have, and the possible opportunities coming up!
Speaking of work, I better get back to it! Hope everyone has a wonderful new year!
