Completely Random. Also, Happy...

First off, happy.  David is home, and off work for the next long little while - see his blog for details.  It's a good thing.  We may even have a date or two in there, as well as some great days together.

On to randomness.  Haven't been knitting in days and days, and I realize it's because I have been avoiding the Mystery Socks.  Love the wool, loved the cuffs, love the ankle pattern.  Don't love continuing the pattern on the top of the foot, for a couple of reasons.  I don't like bulk over my instep, and I reaaaally don't like having to think about a pattern for half a round and then knit plain, for row upon row.  Solution therefore is to rip back to the heel, and reknit the foot in plain stockinette, so I have the joy of the pretty pattern up top and the comfort of plain vanilla along the foot. 

Smart, no?  I plan to do this tonight, while David and I watch an episode of Life together.

More randomness...still loving the audiobook of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.  I'm through disc 8 of 11 now, listening only in the car.  My rhetorical question is this:  If you were an author, and you put in a character who was also your namesake, would you make her the incredibly annoying, rather dull, superhumanly nice character?  Why?  Especially when it's rather obvious that you are a student of human nature, and you DON'T really think the best of everyone, or else you never would have written the book.  Ahem.

WOOHOO!!!! I am so glad that David is home (though not as glad as you guys!) Yes I'd be on the verge the whole time it was snowing and he was flying as well.

And btw I LOVE the show Life! Great show and I'm glad they brought it back (heard it was almost cancelled).

Well, if your dear hubby has the next 12 days off, we do not want to see you in those 12 days. It's not that we don't love you or anything, but we don't want you wasting those precious days on us! Have fun and if you can get a date in, even better. For me, the only dates I get are those brown shrivelled up fruity things that have a stone in the middle.
