People in general suck

The picture is my baby brother with my dog at christmas - nothing to do with this blog but thought I would post it.
So I have decided that most people in general suck. They are out for themselves and only them! Screw everyone else - like a favorite movie of mine says "things really are black and white". You have the friends that even if you don't talk to them every day will with no thought offer you their car, and ones you talk to every day that blow you off. You have the ones that you think have your best interests at heart try to start shit and others that will tell you straight no matter what you want to hear. It's all a matter of not getting bogged down in the everyday stuff - yes they may be a friend but the one you want is the one who is always willing to help if you talked to them 10 minutes ago or 10 years ago. I had a good look at that today and realized I was very luck that I can see what my friends truely are. I know who I can depend on and who I can't. I know who i can call and they will drop everything for me and who I don't even need to bother calling - they never anwser the phone. It's really a do unto others as you would like them to do unto you. I try to live like that - I help where I can, I try not to judge, I support even if I don't like the decision, and I try to never say i told you so to their face - it's just rude! They already know they were an idiot - they don't need you to tell them.
I haven't been knitting much not even really reading my groups on knitting, but someone did post a Texas Dishcloth that I think will be my next one.
She has alot of very interesting dishcloths - I am very broke right now and cotton is very inexpensive so I think for awhile I'll do dishclothes.
I think I'm going to sit and knit for awhile.

So I know I have said I hang out with bikers and I thought I would share alittle with you about the people I hang out with. They are B.A.C.A(bikers against child abuse) and they can explain better then I ever could what they do for kids. is their website. They are a great bunch of people who work towards never having a child afraid. I know bikers have a negitive stereotype and in many ways these are those guys! Tattooed, long hair, beards, hard looking guys and ladies, and some of the best people I have ever known (they are how I met Kevin(repo guy) he is one of them). Here is a link to some pictures of the san Antonio chapter events(no Kevin is not in them) but Bear, chuck, Ileana, Lori and a bunch of others are.
I had sneaked some pictures of Kevin when he fell asleep on the couch but he found them yesterday and deleted them - I thought they were funny - he didn't! The man snores worse then any one except my father! And then swears he doesn't snore - right! I almost fell off the couch laughing when he fell asleep!
I know I have a warped sense of humor - it was funny!
So no pictures today just a couple links. Hope you enjoy meeting some great people and hey - support them in any way you can!

Want a real horse.........

and a fairy to match? Check this one out!

Do you ever notice...

That the longer your up the funnier everything gets, the more you can't stand some people, that the lights are pretty, and for some odd reason - even though they know you! - people think your high! That at 2 am you think odd thoughts you would never think during a busy day. People are much more willing to say anything they think at 2 am also. Doesn't matter what it is it comes out peoples mouths at 2am. You get all your drunk dials, and absurd text messages at 2 am also. But sometimes you get this flash of insight at 2 am, when everything is quiet, dark, and still, with the wind blowing, and the crickets out, the neighbors dog barking, BAM you get an insight that makes you change your life! Makes you look at everything different, makes you different.

That did not happen to me tonight! I got the drunk text messages and phone calls, but they were fun too!
What do you think of this as a new tattoo? She looks like she is contemplating the universe.

Men are very unique and odd creatures. They seem to live their lives in their own odd little universe and expect everyone else around them to live by the rules of that universe. They seem to be unique in how they relate to others of their kind, with odd grunts and hand gestures. They talk in weird little phrases and sayings that are to the female ear - well down right stupid - yet others of their kind respond in a similar fashion, which results in displays of their strenght and proweress. (They also act like a 2 year old on a candy high and whine when they don't get their way - but we already knew that) These creatures cause the female race heart ache, pain, suffering, and pregnancy, yet who is the intellegent race - females keep going back for more.

I have come to the conclusion that females are the odd ones, but also the much more intellegent ones - We know to distroy the weak losers.

So I know my parents have always gone - where did she come from! I come from two people who say NO to tattoos and piercing. Where as I am very much in favor of tattoos! I really want another one and keep looking at all this great Fairy art out on the net and LUSTING for one. I am going to get a tat to represent my great aunt who pasted away last October, but I want more! I keep seeing things that speak to me and I want my life represented on me - I want people to be able to look at my art and know parts of me! Parts of me are naughty! And other parts are sweet and fun! But I want the moments of my life etched onto me. By the way the art is by Amy Brown check out her awesome fairies, I love her stuff. So I tend to be a little less wholesome then I normally look on the outside - all my tattoos are covered when I work - and unless you know me you would never guess I had tattoos - which makes my parents shake their heads. What can I say I am a complex individual. I date bikers, and wear leather, have tattoos - some days. Others I wear jeans and tshirts and look about 20, and seem wholesome and very girl next door, I knit, crochet, spin, weave, cross stitch, scrapbook, and whorship the all might craft gods of fiber and yarn(as well as paper and pen - ask my mother I have more notebooks and blank paper and pens then anyone else I know!) So on todays 4am topic - tattoos I say - HELL YES! And never judge a book without see all there is to see! HEHEHEHE

The Frog

So I am knitting my first dishcloth - every one keeps says how they are instant knitting gratification. We will see. So far I like it - but I think I am keeping it - why should I give up my cute little frog? One of the ladies on my Lone Star Knitting group posted the link and I just thoughtit was cute - I had some cream cotton that mom had bought at the Yarn Barn and then left here - just one skein, not enough for a decent project but more then enough for a dishcloth! So here's how it looks so far - we'll see if I finish it and how it turns out!
In other news I have been hanging out with Kevin(repo Guy) some and we have a good time - he showed me pictures of his kids and they are so cute - his younger son has his smile - which I know means trouble! I can see it in the glint in both their eyes! I told him he would and asked what he was like and he said "he's just like me only 10 times worse - I am so getting paid back" HEHEHEHEHE karma sucks but is so funny when it's not happening to you! On that profound thought - I'm going to go have lunch - I just got up and need food!

2 AM and odd thoughts

So I just got home from work about 15 minutes ago and plan on going out again in about another 15 - repo guy is coming to pick me up. Work was fine - same ol' same ol'. I did get hit on by a 20 year old, very much a mood pick me up even if it did make me feel some what old. All I could think was Baby you can't even buy me a drink, let alone have a conversation with me. Still - nice to know 20 years olds think I'm HOT! I am having alot of fun with Kevin (repo guy), nice to hang out with a guy with a sense of humor, that can laugh even when things are rocky. I'm tired of guys who are so serious, everything has to be just so, don't hurt their feelings.UGGGG. I just want a fun guy to hang out with, that thinks I'm HOT, and fun to be with. Kevin showed up yesterday at work and kept whistling at me as I was working - was cute and funny - I realized I had never realy had a guy whistle at me before. So in honor of this new fun guy I'm going to do something I think is very not fun - I'm going back to the gym - want to keep him whistling at me! Although he says I'm toohard on myself that I look the way a woman should - now who wants to argue with that?
I'm off - time to go!

Check out what I got

So I had a visitor at work last night and I thought I would share what he brought. I hadn't seen or heard from him since friday night and was alittle pissed thinking I was being blown off, turns out his cell died - the battery is dead dead and won't hold a charge - and he said he didn't know how I would feel about his just coming over without calling or checking to make sure it was okay with me first. Which I understand some people are weird about people showing up unexpected. So I am going to concider this his one screw up and see how things go. Plus he says sorry so nicely - what girl doesn't like a guy who brings her flowers - and NOT RED! They are a beautiful fushia color! A guy with some imagination . So ladies what do you think - forgive or what? I'm for bed just got home from work and had to share.

So I know i should talk abut something else - like the fact that I haven't knit in 2 days and my crochet is now stuck in a closet - DAMN DPN - but I'm in a good mood - so I'm sharing! The repo guy is really nice, except for the slightly weird fact that is name is Kevin - my father is Kevin too. He came by work last night to say hi and see me, then came back at 3 with breakfast so i didn't have to go any where on my break. It was funny that I have allways thought(even said it 2 weeks ago) that I wanted a handy guy, who likes bikes, dogs and has a sense of humor - too soon to tell but he has a sense of humor, loves bikes and seems handy to have around - NOT that i'm getting ahead of my self - we haven't even really had a date date - you know he plans it, picks me up, takes me out brings me home etc. but it's fun now!

Interesting evening part 2

So I had a really good time we didn't get any cars but we drove around all night talking and he took me to breakfast this morning before droping me off and meeting my dog(this big one is sweetpea- mine, and the little demon is dolly mom's Chihuahua trying to eat mine at christmas) Which is a big thing because my dog doesn't like most people! Well he was fine with him - let him rub all over him and scratch his back - plus I got asked to go with him again! And I got a super sweet text message saying sweet dreams this am and a good morning sunshine at 4 this afternoon! I'm off to see when he wants to meet up again.

An interesting evening out

Well I am going out tonight to repo cars! One of the guys in a biker group I know BACA(bikers against child abuse) is a repo man who works nights, so tonight I bumped into him at starbucks and was complaining about being p all night for work and being bored on my day off, saying I was just going to knit and watch a movie - and to try not to throw those damn DPN's across the room! I have never used DPN before and am not happy with them at the moment! So he invited me to go repo with him and I am! Should be interesting! I'll report about it tomorrow!

Another day

So my roommate showed yesterday after three weeks in Flagstaff Az. Nice to have someone else in the house. A day off I have a day off! I am so happy I have been working 7 days straight! 9pm to 6 am way to many days in a row!
So to celebrate I am casting on for the Knucks KAL if anyone wants to join! I went and got 2 balls of wool ease to try since I don't have any rowan yarn. I think I'm going to use MANS RUIN on my gloves and a friend has already put in a request for HARM NONE, so it looks like I'm doing at least 2 pair! We are having a contest in the KAl to see who knits the most pairs - i know it won't be me but still can't wait to see all the posts!
In other news i started the second of a pair of leg warmers. I got a great deal on yarn today - fur novelty yarn for 75cents a skein! I only bought $6 worth I restrained myself!
Well off to cast on!

Middle of the night thoughts!

Okay so I know some people never sleep - but why are you at starbucks at 3 am, and why do you act like i should be able to read your mind? If i was psychic do yu think I would be working here? HELLO - anyone home? (just so you do't think I'm mean - I am one of those weirdos at starbucks in the middle of the night - even on my days off - when I'm not knitting) Knitting - I love to stick a movie on I have seen a million times and knit away for a hours - I have seen elizabethtown oh at a guess 100-150 times - no joke - at least 3-4 times a week - it just really strikes something in me - I have made that kind of trip alot inthe last few years with family members. but I have also found PBS and BBC are great to watch - I love Miss Marple in the middle of the night!

Work has been better - not so stressed at the moment - which for me is a miracle! Now if everthing else would fall into place - yea right! The world isn't that easy!

I'm thinking i need new yarn for the Knucks KAL - right? You could always use more yarn!
Wool or eww I know a nice silk alpacca blend would feel so nice - or angora and wool - NO - angora and alpacca!

Time for bed - to dream about lovely yarn.

Have you ever had one of those weekends - you know the ones where everything is against you? So I got a promotion - sounds like a good thing right? WRONG!!!!! because of said promotion i was TRANSFERRED to a new store - okay still not a horrid thing - except it's the only 24 hour store in town and guess who gets the night shift - yep me! So i have been training for my new position - and after being told sunday night i would be on my own for the first time - after only 4 count them 4 night on that shift with someone else, where you have a HUGE amount of stuff that has to be done at a certain time in a certain way i go in friday to find out - you guessed didn't you! I WAS ON MY OWN! Now i work for starbucks - a very busy 24 hour starbucks - next to a movie theater - and the new pirates came out friday - the movie that made 138 MILLION in 3 days! And i'm in charge for the first time with 2 days experience - so i almost said I QUIT!!!! The only thing that stopped me was - ou guessed it I have bills! Saturday night and sunday night were better, but i did nothing but try to recover during my time away from work and now tonight another overnight shift - i could cry - i need a break.

In other more pleasant news I finished the first in a set of leg warmers and signed up for theKNUCKS KAL - yes i do realize i am knitting not crocheting at present! I am learning this odd two needle yarn in weird places craft too! I can master it - no matter how many years it takes!
Now for a lovely afternoon of sifting through my yarn closet to decide on what yarn to use for the knucks and a pair of the fetching gloves out og the new knitty.
