Well, crud.



What a day it's been.

First of all, it's raining. Pouring. Wearing flip flops in pouring rain to a grocery store whose parking lot is filled with deep puddles = dumb.

I get so excited when people leave comments on my blog. But not when the comments are to let me know that our guild site has been hacked!! /hugs Allessia

My back up of the site database is on my laptop. Which is giving me this blue screen with some mountable disk error. I am assuming that this is "laptop-ese" for "let me die", but the bottom line was that I didn't have the files to replace the broken ones. That is a very scary thing. I was afraid for a while there that we'd be forever stuck with the grafitti from some dumb ass kid in Turkey, but low and behold, Kallisti saved the day and had the file we needed. Talk about a relief.

Some good things did happen today. Clapotis is finished. I'll post some pictures tomorrow. I love it, I love it, I love it. I'm so happy with how it turned out--it was really fun to knit.

My Cookie Lee sample club got here today. This is when they send out shiny new things that are available in a limited supply, and shiny new things every month make me a very happy camper. I love everything that came today, which puts me in a pickle: How the hell am I supposed to sell this stuff and actually part with it? I think that's the ONLY thing I don't like about what I do, hehe.

I also received a package today from a company that set me up so I can accept credit cards. This kind of rounds things out for Andrea and I, now we can handle our own charge sales instead of having her sister run our charges for us like we have been. We plan to do a lot of shows before the end of the year, so this will come in handy for sure.

Well, it's a short post today. I think I'm going to go sit in front of the TV and wait for Criss Angel to be on. Has anyone seen his show? He's a magician, and he's pretty spectacular. We all enjoy watching his show-Sebastian likes him almost as much as he likes Dog the Bounty Hunter.

Speaking of other cool things, I figured I'd post the link to this. I'm guessing that this is going to be the next big internet thing because my friend from school Jeff sent it to me the other day, and my Dad sent it to me twice today.

Gives me a whole new perspective on exercise equipment:

especially since my experience on treadmills is more comparable to this:

Enjoy!!

Ohh, trust me, you're not the only Criss Angel watcher. I love his show; there was a marathon this past Sunday, so I was parked in front of the tube knitting all day. Can't wait to see your Clappy, I'll be starting my second one of these days :) Sorry to be the bearer of bad hacking news earlier!
