I am crazy tired. But in a good way. I got up really early today to attend the UU church in Ann Arbor before I headed off to my sword class. It was interesting and definitely different from my parents church. Though not in a bad way, just not what I'm used to. I think I'll go back next week.

So after that I headed to my swordsmanship lesson. Today was my first one and it was interesting and pretty awesome. Turns out I'm too late to join up with the current Basic students, they're too far along for me to catch up to them. The next session of Basic starts up next month though, so it's not too bad a wait. Until then I'm just going to observe the current students and be the demo monkey for when they need a complete noob to demo what the other students doing wrong. Or to mock the way the Society for Creative Anachronisms teaches swordsmanship which is pretty hilarious since they're set up right next to us and can hear every word that Sal is saying.

I can't wait till I can get started. it's going to be amazing. *strikes pose* I'm going to be the best swordswoman ever! *grins*

I Am Alive!

I live! And I have a job! Yay! At least till the end of June or July. Which is not so yay. But still having a job is of the good. I'm a file clerk and it's kinda mind numbing sometimes; now that I've got the hang of it, but then I pretend that I'm Donna Noble and everything somehow becomes a little more epic. Because that's what Donna does.

Also, have recently discovered that I can't focus if I don't have a knitting project that I'm working on because I keep wanting to look through patterns and buy yarn if I don't have something taking up my attention. It's less dangerous to my money to have a project going. Think I might start an attempt at the Doctor Who scarf sometime soonish because that'll take me forever. Currently working on cute set of corset gloves that are working up pretty quickly. They should look like this (www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/corseted-mitts) when they're done. I'm doing mine in a stripy orange with gray ribbon. And it will be totally awesome.

Also, need to start working on that green bustle skirt for WorldSteam or it'll never be done in time. And it must! Because how else am I going to be the Head Librarian Mechanic of Endellion Gray the most famous mechanized library in Scotland without a lovely outfit that fits the part? Granted, the bussle skirt is intended more toword the masquerade ball bit of the con but I'm fairly certain that the point still stands. I think. For my not formal wear I'm thinking more riding skirt sorta thing that can go between pants and skirt at my will. Maybe something like this, www.ladiesemporium.com/store/002783.php, but in black and with more pockets. Sensible blouse, a matching vest and a nice tool belt and then we should be in business. Hopefully. And maybe a bowler hat for the hell of it. Because I like hats, mainly. I've got some ideas for mods but until I have everything I'm not going to go too crazy.

Shall try to update more often but no promises.

This semester is over! WOO! I'm glad that's over with. Now all I have to do is veg and job hunt. Also, my grandpa is pretty freaking awesome because he's offered to help me out with college next semester which means I actally have money left over that I can use to buy Christmas presents and take three classes. *does a little dance* Which is awesome because I hate it when I get Christmas presents but I haven't given any. Makes me feel ridiculously selfish and scroogey even though I don't really like Christmas too much. I do like the giving and receiving bits though. Mainly I just hate how everyt year the fundies will get up in arms about the 'War on Christmas' and go on about how 'Jesus is the Reason for the Season' - it's really annoying. The Pagans had it first. *rolls eyes* Though I'm thinking about to a Christmas/ Christmas Eve (not sure) Mass this year because I've heard it's very pretty. At the very least it'll be interesting. And maybe I'll volunteer at a soup kitchen or charity. I've been meaning to do that anyway.

Also, my knitting is going very well. I've nearly got my fingerless gloves done along with my mum's and I'm starting on a new project. Fingerless Snake Mittens! (runningjackknits.blogspot.com/2008/09/its-here.html) I'm doing the snake in rainbow yarn and the actal glove in turquoise. It's going to be awesome. I'm pretty sure Lauren will love it. *grins* Plus I get a fox hat out of the deal. Not a fox fox hat but a felt one that looks like a fox. Just clearing that up.
