Inspiration of the Day

since i'm leaving in a month and want to take my family's brita water tank with me, i promised to find a replacement for them to keep. since i couldn't remember the word 'tank' i went to search google images for brita stuff...

and came across these ads.
why did i never see these before? they're very stark, disturbing and highly impactful, in a minimalistic way. advertisement at its best.

Inspiration of the Night

The sunrise through my window. i drank coffee that was too strong and didn't sleep a wink last night. but i dreamt- or perhaps i had visions, sudden inspiration for things i want to do when the sun is out. i thought to myself: today is a month since the summer solstice. what have i done these past thirty days?
I wish ideas were a body fluid- they could cut me open and drain my brain when i get bloated, and put it all in little vials for cold storage. and when the time was right i could find the ideas, all nicely bottled up, and i'd actually do something with them. but in their current state, i can't do too much: the ones i don't get around to harvesting, they slosh around in my head til they spoil and fall from recollection.
But i guess that's the purpose of writing things down.

Inspiration of the Day

This is a close up of my Inspiration Corner! It's a collection of my old school ID cards, business cards and promo stuff, movie tickets, and used gift cards i stole from my job >3<. Here we have two awesome little 'gifts' from my SO: a photo he took for a class, which portrays a bunch of yarny things he had(or stole) at the time, and my corsage from prom. :) is this all going to come to college with me?!¿¡?!

Inspiration of the Day which also happens to be an FO.

I kind of regret this yarn, but not the typical buyer's regret- i bought it on a wednesday and had a new, next- to-skin-soft-but-surprisingly-Noro scarf on thursday evening.
The yarn is Noro Taiyo in colorway #4. while i was working on it i couldn't help but think of all the sweet summer treats the colors called to mind- neopolitan ice cream, watermelon, sasaparilla root beer on ice... and a bunch of things i can't eat right now! XD
Yes, I'm on a diet, but it's a not a weight focused diet so much as an "improving well being thru limiting very specific foods" diet. which is hard enough anyways. i hope you are all well, or at least enough so that you don't have to avoid yummy foods like me :0

Plague of Flies Cast-Off Marathon and The Internet as Your Enemy.

I've been busy, lazy and increasingly nocturnal this week. On either monday or tuesday, my little sister <let's call her "Glare" cause she's good at that> got in trouble with our folks, her friends, and the nice people who run a popular social networking site. it just goes to show:actions speak louder than words, but on the internet they are one in the same. she made a remark about a friend who had been ignoring her: word got around, bans were made and parents were called. so now she's become social pariah. and my folks have assigned me to address the issue of her internet usage. to be frank i don't want to go near this whole ordeal. so let's think happy thoughts!
when i woke up tuesday morning and opened the door to the office, a dozen flies were chilling out by the window. i moved my yarn and computer out ASAP. and by the end of the day i killed at least 20, though i stopped count at 14.
and i finished all but three of my WIPS! i hibernated or frogged what was left and started anew.

Inspiration of the Day: cute dresses from CONWAY ! <3

Posting after midnight for Saturday -_- it still counts...

today my dad, sister and i went to go visit a friend of my dad's who is in rehab - he fell off the roof of his house and split his pelvis wide open. moral of the story is: be careful when you're on a roof and have someone with you! it was an interesting visit; the dudes talked about old movies, bad animation from the 70's and CSI. then on our way home we stopped to investigate a sign we had seen on our way in: CONWAY.

when my mother was a student living in Manhattan, conway was her favorite store for cheap and trendy clothes. And they are dirt cheap! i work part time at a retail store that shall not be named, but the dresses at conway were so much cuter, and $10 cheaper to boot. when i went to a conway in manhattan with my family last year (we had gone to see avenue q) i got some really cute dresses from their 'out of order' line. the prints are quirky and flattering! next time you
pass a conway, be sure to check it out! :O

Finished Project: Blue Boobies

A friend for a gift.... i mean a gift for a friend! the pattern is Tit Bits from Knitty, made in the B cup size with Moda Dea Washable Wool. Actually made a while ago, but i forgot to take photos before i gifted them.

Inspiration of the Day: Acquerello by Aurora Yarns with a bead tube

It has been summer for quite a while now! a lot of things have gone down since i last wrote. first of all, i got a phone with a full keyboard! so i've resolved that using it to blog everyday might be good practice typing on this thing. i'll have inspirations of the day, project updates and whatever else strikes me as awesome enough to let the world know about.
right now i'm job hunting, since they're handing out significantly less hours where i'm already employed. however i need my license soon, even if i don't have a car. i failed the first test back at the begining of the month; please wish me luck this time around :).
i have a banch of things i want and need to do before i leave for school in the fall. hopefully i'll get a few done at least, and then i'll tell you all about it.
til next time!
