I can't help it because I'm lame like that

Sorry to be so boring -- it has been extremely busy around here this week.
And work has been, well, a chore.
I need to make plans to go out with Sheri and Jean, I owe emails to Angelika and Purl -- I'm such a slacker. BTW, head over to Angelika's blog and check out her lovely new shawl that she finished in like a day.
I have a presentation on punk rock due on Monday for class (hence me downloading songs I'm discovering 30 years too late) and I have been busy incubating on that and putting my slide show together.
Not even much knitting is being done although I did unravel my second Fetching wristwarmer because the count was all off - and I did that last night while at Girl Scouts. I had to go help the girls train to sell cookies but hallelujah, praise the Lord and all that -- this year I am not the Cookie Mom.
Which gives me time to get my Graduate School application together to submit no later than November 15. I'm enrolled in the last class I can take as a non-matriculated student - 0nly 9 semester hours allowed - and the VA won't pay for more than 6 so that money vein is temporarily tapped out .
So my apologies for being so darn boring -- I can't help it. I'm hoping this weekend will be the Best Ever!
Well, as long as I'm prepared for class on Monday night.
And a big hello to my friend Janet, with whom I was stationed in Okinawa back in the early 90s. We reconnected through Together We Served which is a great resource for finding other Marines. Or any of those other branches of the Service.
And now I'll leave you with one of my favorite Far Side strips -- have a great day!


P.S. I need a button for my blog - does anyone know how to make them?

You don't need to worry about me--I am a terrible email slacker.

Your class sounds like so much fun. I was a completely safe and non-rebellious high school student in the early eighties, but I loved my punk rock.
