Adventures in giant letter Rs, knitting & accidental drunkenness



I got drunk accidentally in the middle of the afternoon yesterday. Coffee turned into beer after 1:00 PM and I'm such a lightweight that I was all buzzed after two drinks. While winding my way home I ran into these giant letters in the dumpster by a construction site. I got permission - after speaking to some security guards and the manager named Bobby at a pawn show (they own the property), followed by hilariousness with wheelbarrows, hurricane fencing and ultimately the realization that my giant letter R would not fit into my car. I called Nathan for a rescue, no answer, so I called Joey. He arrived in record time, rescued my letter R in his truck and we ended up spending some quality time shooting the shit over Topo Chico's on the couch.

I am now the proud owner of a giant letter R. I think I'll put Christmas lights on it.

I finished my pinwheel blanket over the weekend (photos soon) while watching movies with CWS. Just need to weave in the ends, give it a good wash/light blocking and send it on it's way to NYC. The baby is due any day now so the timing is good.

Things with CWS are on hold for the moment, which leaves me with an unfinished pair of socks. I could finish them and gift them to him. I could frog them. Or I could finish them and decide later where they will ultimately end up. Right now I think I'll just focus on some other UFOs and come back to them in a few weeks when I'm feeling less raw, sad, discouraged and lonely.
