crazy day

I spent most of my time today preparing for a meeting for our fundraiser. It actually went really well, so I'm glad I prepared so well. It just proves that my mother was right about being prepared. It really does make life easier!

I went to Rhea's house after the meeting so I could exchange season 2 of Star Trek with season 3. It's cool, like I have my own video library! (but you're much more than that, Rhea, you're also a music library, lol) She loaded my iPod with shiny new tunes and some TV shows too! Just what I need, right? More entertainment?! It will be very useful on my flight to LA, though. It's a long flight and I get bored easily.

We went for coffee and while we were there, she suggested I try to knit a Jayne Cobb hat (from the short-lived TV show Firefly, so when I got home, I looked it up. I can't believe how many people out there have patterns for this particular hat! It's great! I found this one that I think I'll use. It's a simply awful hat, in my least favorite colors to wear, but it'll be great to have one for DragonCon this year. (only to be worn inside, as Atlanta is truly "Hotlanta" in September!) So of course I'm going to try it after I knit the hat for my soldier. In fact, I might just make one for all the people who are joining me for DragonCon this year. Chris, would you wear a Jayne hat if I made it for you??? I attempted to use my circular needles last night and got completely confused. After that, I found a video online that helped me understand a little, but am still a little afraid of them. Of course, I felt the same way about the purl stitch, so I'm sure I'll get it eventually. I love a challenge... Speaking of DragonCon, I should check the guest list to see if anyone good has been added. *goes off to check list*

  2. I'm thinking about possibly going into public relations when I get out of college. How do you like your job?

  3. Meredith,

    I love my job. In fact, I think I'll do a whole post about it very soon, just so you can see what it's like. Stay tuned!
