Wash Day!

Wash Day!

Well, you can certainly tell what the weather has been like judging from this pile of handknit socks. I think there are 12 pairs of socks here, only two of which are Manly's. I think I should knit another pair for him, perhaps as a Christmas gift. He really deserves a pair of socks. For those of you in my sock club, I'll have you know that Manly wrapped all the books up in newspaper. By the end, he was wrapping them up so neatly that he could be employed to wrap gifts professionally. He really helped me to get this last shipment out, and I don't think I could have done it without him.

I have a phone interview later today for a job. Yes, a job. I mean, a JOB JOB. I big job. A real job. The job that I've been going to school forever for. I'm the the academic job market this year. This has implications, but I won't scare anyone yet. I'll deliver news when it's time to deliver news.

The weather outside is very, very frightful, and it seems as if the whole city is wrapped in some strange bubble--everything is off; everything is late. But there was no line at the post office today. It's very strange.

Yesterday, I got a package, so says the on-line tracker, but there was no package to be found. I'm terribly distressed over this--the package was full of something for the sock club. Whoever stole it must be very confused or disappointed.

Update: the package appeared today. Like I said--there's a strange bubble over the city it seems.

I wish I had laundry piles that looked so good! It's really inspiring me to finally start knitting socks. Soon. Good luck tomorrow on the phone--but does that mean you won't be at the lunch meeting? I'll miss you!

That's how my laundry's been looking the last couple of weeks - makes me so glad I'm a superwash yarn girl :) Mr B said he loves hanging up the colourful things to dry.

Glad your package arrived (well, appeared) safe and sound.

Good luck on the market, keeping my fingers crossed for you! BTW the most recent sock club shipment sent me into paroxysms, it was phenomenal!!

Good luck! And I'm glad your shipment arrived. I have to say that I'm jealous of your weather. It was about 75 and sunny today. I want weather that feel like Christmas.. not summer. Uggh. I'll never get used to living down here. I look forward to hearing how your phone interview goes :)

Best of luck with the job search! And yeah, the November sock club yarn...even my non-knitter gf shrieked when she saw it.
