Let's talk about socks

My fingers were in a flurry working on my socks.
So much more than before!
 I made a sad realization last night, once I started the leg, that one ball of the particular yarn I purchased equals one sock, not two... whoops. I think they're coming along well though. I worked on them all through Kevin's Fantasy Football draft, and hopefully will finish the first sock by Tuesday. Then I will wait for more yarn...

I need a job. Now. Someone please give me one. NOW. It's 8:10 a.m.; I haven't been asleep since 6 a.m. because I am stressed out about money. This sucks. And it's not for lack of trying, I've applied to a ton of jobs, but I'm sure everyone else has too :( For now, I will knit and stress and continue to work my two lackluster part-time jobs for the next two weeks. Then my contract is up and I will proceed to work my remaining lackluster part-time job. No offense to the library, but I can't be a page forever making just above minimum wage at 20 hours a week. That doesn't pay the bills at all. 

In non-knitting news, some people get on my nerves, and some peole make no sense. Why bother saying you're somoene's friend if you aren't, then be an asshole to them through social media? If you have a problem with someone, either speak to them or just ignore them all together. It makes me glad that Facebook and Myspace weren't around when I was in high school (yeah, I'm that old), because I imagine it would make high school just that much worse--although some people still act like they're in high school, so whatever. And riddle me this--why would you bring your non-football fan girlfriend to a fantasy football draft? I was there because it was at my apartment, I'm not sure why a certain person brough their girlfriend. Unless, of course, she made him bring her.

I was up way too early, my body is going to hate me later. I can already feel a headache coming on.


  1. i love you. and i agree with all the unfortunate negative points of this post. :( let's start our own business?

  2. Can it a be a microbrewery yarn shop knit cafe

  3. You are so cruising on that sock! Awesome to see it going so quickly. Sorry to hear about the job/money woes. if you do end up opening a microbrewery yarn shop knit cafe, I will be your first customer!

  4. I'd give you a job, but you're not in Georgia...

  5. Dear B, I don't know what your plans are as far as where you want to end up (Michigan? Elsewhere?), but I found a few jobs...not sure if they're even what you're looking for, but they are all full time. And this Michigan Herc site socks for finding higher-ed jobs.
