Gadzooks!

G'day all!

Well, I've not heard many theories about what the triangle is, though I sure gave away a lot of clues....

Today for your delectation and DE-light, we have (TA-DUM!)



A FINISHED object! (With slicey dicey head and a really dopey grin - I was half asleep at the time - topped off by uncombed hair cos my head was not supposed to be in shot) This is the sort of thing that happens when I am not at work- I get bored and knit things and spin things whilst waiting for the unwellness to recede. I even finish things!

And here is the back view with me attempting to be saucy since Nathan was playing photographer:


Mental note to self - being saucy in trackpants, even fairly neat fitting trakky dax, does not enhance one's bottom.

Hooray for me! It is actually ok! The neck is a little sloppy but it has to be cos otherwise my boofhead won't fit through the neckhole (boofheaded mother, boofheaded father = boof headed kids. Just something for you girls out there to remember). The seams are almost all beautiful - I ued the nifty matterss seaming instead of the old, reliable but not pretty back stitch. I am quite pleased with it. I have worn it for a few hours and so far so good - no reeeky armpit smells, no particular itches. Much better than the first time around for this top. I am so pleased that it is now actually wearable. Wearable is good.

It is a pity that I managed to spill something on it at some point and it had a vaguely brown blob on the lace. LOL Typical me!

Must find out what my housemate uses for perfume. Hmm, could've phrased that better - I make it sound like she uses cat wee or rolls around in the compost bin or something, but whatever it is, I am very allergic to it. I'm on antihistamines so my nose is not managing to run but my lungs are dying.

Finally, having had a look at not Amelia Raitte's blog (99% sure it isn't her real name), I came across some fun and games she had looked at whilst suffering ennui.

This place said that my birth tree is:

Walnut Tree, the Passion

and this makes me:
Unrelenting, strange and full of contrasts, often egoistic, aggressive, noble, broad horizon, unexpected reactions, spontaneous, unlimited ambition, no flexibility, difficult and uncommon partner, not always liked but often admired, ingenious strategist, very jealous and passionate, no compromises.

Wow. I never knew that was me! Unrelenting? Unlimited ambition? No flexibility? Ingenious strategist? All the rest? I will happily admit to being strange and having unexpected reactions though.

Then this numerology place told me my life path is 9. I am compassionate and generous and not suited to the business environment. Isn't that nice? And that Nathan is a 22, which means he has hit the peak of the tree and is one of nature's oddballs and true visionaries. I laughed and laughed and laughed, cos it described him quite well.

I don't tend to take these things seriously - I know some do but I don't. Just like some people have Faith and I don't. But I do find them amusing, in the same sort of way that trashy women's magazines are amusing - you "read" their "in-depth" articles and laugh and forget about it. It amuses me more when the astrology sites tie into my apparent Meyer-Briggs type (infp).

And on that note,

anon!
