Pleading "temporary" insanity.

Lost cell phone, lost ID card, not watching traffic, (same) lost cell phone. This is certainly turning into a sick cycle. Unfortunately for me, I have to whip out some explanation for all of this chaos. I plead "temporary" insanity, because I'm too young to tag myself with Alzheimer's. So, please. PLEASE. If someone has seen my brain, please return it. It is probably with my cellphone, which I still cannot find.

For all of you sockclub peeps, the pattern should be done within a week. I received the yarn a few days ago, and am working diligently on it, as well as tweeking the pattern as I go. Your package will be sent before Valentine's Day, and I am hoping that everyone will just love my lovey-dovey pattern. And Liz's colorway. And the "unknown" item. For everyone else, I should have a finished picture up around or after Valentine's Day.

I'm quite pleased that my Intro to Prehistory book that I ordered through a third party on Amazon came today. I don't have time to mess with fraudulent sellers right now. I also spent the majority of today at Starbucks, knitting and reading the intro to the Friday Night Knitting club, which I spent my precious Borders gift card on (as well as two Nicholas Sparks books). I really do mean "precious." How easy is it to spend 40 bucks? I can't believe how much books cost now. I can buy movies cheaper at Walmart. This book says that it will tug at my let's see. However, after reading The Notebook, A Bend in the Road, and At First Sight in a row, it has a little competition for my "tears." But we'll see, won't we?

Ah, Linguistics. It's useful, but retched. It shows me that I should have gotten "hooked on phonics" as a kid. I might just be bald by the end of this semester. It wasn't required for me, but I jumped onboard, hoping to learn a few things. I just hope I don't regret my decision. If it doesn't help my English, or diction for singing... it will at least work in conjunction with my Prehistory course. Or maybe I can leave the class happy to at least know that linguistics means "the study of languages."

Good luck finding your brian.

Friday Night Knit Club is good but I'm not sure it will make you cry.

Sorry you lost your phone! :(
As for books being crazy, I agree, they are nuts!! I've started asking for barnes & Noble gift cards because you can use them to buy the used books that outside sellers post on their website. I don't really know how that is possible, but I keep doing it and it keeps working, so I'm not complaining. :)
