girlnamedxena: (you suck)
Block week.


Tomorrow I'm doing a presentation on eunuchs, queer space and the historical Jesus. Will also be doing spinning demo (drop spindle).

No, the spinning has nothing to do with what I'm actually suppose to be doing. But the textbook about queerspace!Jesus has a picture of a woman using a spinning wheel on the cover. Why didn't they just go ahead and put a helicopter in the background? Maybe have Robocop stomping around some skyscrapers smiting disbelievers with nuclear bombs while purple dragons fly around spitting out cupcakes.

Ok, today has been super productive. If by super productive you mean I crawled out of bed at noon and have yet to get dressed.

But really! I did do some useful stuff today. I ordered my niddy noddy from some place just outside of town. I haven't seen a picture, but hopefully I won't be screwed over. I finished spinning all of my white wool. I also called the dressform people to ask about an exchange and the guy I talked to said based on my measurements I actually do have the right sizes of stuff. So I can start altering the cover, but I need someone to help me pin stuff, so that would probably be my mom, unless one of you wants to come over and help me out with that.

I also did most of the dishes. Go me.

I should probably work on that essay, buuuuut I'm not gonna >.> I can do it tomorrow.

Oh, and I also started plying my hand painted merino on my drop spindle yesterday. I was doing three ply, but I ran out of yarn with one of the three balls, so I attempted Navajo Plying, which I sorta failed at. Oh well. I still have a bunch of lumpy yarn, but I've got some rather nice, even 3-ply too.

I suppose I should get dressed before my mom gets home from work. Blech.

In other news, my thumb nail and pointer fingernail on my right hand broke, which is making it hard for me to do stuff =/ I hope they grow out quickly.

It's almost one in the morning and I'm still wide awake. Blarg.

I looked up all the text books I need, and tomorrow I'm going to the university to get my new bus pass sticker thingie and buy books (hopefully the stores will be open *crosses fingers*)

Um. What else? I've decided that as long as I'm not going to be sleeping I might as well try and do something useful, hence research ect.

I'm also taking commissions for knitting projects. There are a bunch of pictures of some recent things I've made behind the cut, along with descriptions and explanations. I designed almost everything (exceptions will be noted) and created the patterns from scratch, some of them from photographs.
