I stayed in a hotel in Sutherlin, Ore. not too long ago that was actually pretty cool. Very compact, but accommodating. They had a menu from a local restaurant in the room, which I think is nice. It helps me pick something out before I get there - efficiency at it's best! However, this one had a strange picture on the menu that deterred me from going there. I realize it was supposed to me Mayan or something, but it was just weird looking!

I don't know... I just don't want to see the deer's tummy. After all, that's where it would go in me! My tummy! Creepy.

knitting again & Oregon Ducks

Since I'm not currently employed, I've started knitting something I like to call "The Unemployment Scarf". I don't think I got enough yarn, but it's a clearanced yarn and therefore not too expensive. (Sorry for the blurry pics.)

I'm knitting on double pointed needles to make it tubular... although I think I made it a little wider than I wanted. I was going for a skinny scarf. Oh well. Somehow, the color is perfect for an "unemployment scarf". Oh, and I guess I dropped a stitch or something, and now have a hole. I'm going to pretend it's not there. I don't believe in frogging.

The day after my co-worker and I got the news of our nonexistant jobs, we were blessed to go to an Oregon Ducks game - the first game of the season! It was soooo much fun! There were a few drunk college guys sitting directly in the seats behind us and they were really loud (go figure), but fun. We (the drunk guys and us, and then the section beside us) started The Wave!!! And it even went around FIVE times! It was great.

Score, Oregon Ducks!!!! I believe the final score was U of O: 48, Stanford: 10. Oh yeah.

International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Avast me hearties!!! It be the day we've been awaitin' for! International Talk Like A Pirate Day! People around this good globe of arrrrs are celebratin' good times and good ales! Wear yer gear, swing yer sword! And if that not be enough, you can KNIT Like A Pirate too! AAARRRRRR!!!!

May ye all be a pirate, if even for one day!

You won't believe I'm posting this...

I came home the other day to find this monster on my wall in the livingroom above my couch. Grrr!!! I can't look at the pictures, but I'm going to post it and never look again. I will comment on the last picture - the weapon of doom...

This is the weapon of doom. I couldn't get close enough to just use the vacuum - that was waaaaay to close for comfort. It could jump off the wall and on me! so I super-duct-taped it to the broom to give me a longer reach:

Chocolate Crepe Cake

Since I've been so far behind in my posting duties, I'm backtracking. This is a cake that I wanted to post a while ago. They gave it to me for leaving - I mean, they gave it to me for a goodbye present when I left the pharmacy to go back on the road. It's one of the best cakes EVER. It's a chocolate crepe cake:

And if that's not beautiful, look at the scrumptious layers of chocolate crepes separated by creamy filling!!!

And in spite of all the cream, it was very rich. And soooooo good!!! I ended up giving the leftovers to my neighbors because I seriously would have eaten the whole thing. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

I would like to introduce everybody to...

She's a nice girl, but a little "fast" if you know what I mean.

I got her because my wonderful Roger is tired and needs a break from all the travelling. He's making a funny noise and his clutch is acting up a little. Plus, he only gets around 12 miles per gallon. Yeah. But I still love him.

Veronica has a dark charcoal interior and a little bit of chrome. :) Yay dark seats and chrome!

Veronica and I go fast. Oh, I mean... we go the speed limit. She's got spunk! Seriously, it's nice filling up every 330 miles or so instead of 175 miles. And when I drive the speed limit and stop using the A/C, I'm sure my mileage will be even better.

I was going to pay for her using the money I get for mileage that I get paid... but new circumstances have come up. My job and my co-worker's job were cancelled last Friday. They are letting us finish out the month. I'm going to enjoy Veronica while I can.

I'm not stressed. At all.
