mellicious: pink manicure (buffy quote - flawed design)
[personal profile] mellicious
I was going to write "real" - you know, organized - posts for Holidailies, but well, organization is not my strong suit. I may get there eventually, I may not. We'll see. I'm trying to organize my house; maybe I can only organize one thing at a time. Frankly, at this point the house is considerably more important to me than writing organized entries.

I just finally posted the entry I wrote last night to Holidailies, anyway - it wouldn't let me post it from work, although I doubt that they've blocked Holidailies or anything. At least, they've never done anything like that before. I can't imagine that Holidailies is a big enough time-suck for enough people that it registers on anybody's list of sites that need to be blocked. So I imagine it was just some momentary glitch or something.

I haven't really done anything new and holiday-ish to write about, since I was gone all weekend. (If anybody new has wandered along, I refer you to the end-of-November post where I talk about what I had already gotten done then.) I need to do cards. I need to put up the little white tree, if I'm going to. More importantly - I guess - I need to find some fabric to bind that quilt of my mother's with, if I'm going to get it done before Christmas. (I'm unsure because it's for my sister, and she was hinting around that she might not come for Christmas, anyway. So really, why should I bother?) I did look around for some fabric I can use - I think I can find some, although several pieces I tried weren't dark enough - it's that really dark navy blue, true navy blue, so to speak. But I have a bunch of repro fabric, if I can find it, that I think is that color. It may be with the stuff I took to the retreat last spring (the last time I actually worked on quilting), and I think all that stuff is still together.

I woke up really, really early this morning - like, I laid there awake for a good while, and got up and it was still only 5 - and I felt really crappy and headachy, not surprisingly. Luckily, since I didn't have to go to work, I was able to go back to bed eventually, and sleep a couple more hours. Actually, once I got back to sleep I didn't want to wake up again. I have gotten interested in another CJ Cherryh book, though - I forget which one I'm on, Precursor, maybe? The titles all blend together in my head - and I stayed in bed and read that much longer than I intended to. I still managed to get my hair done before work, just the same. The gray roots are gone and it's very burgundy again. That stage never lasts as long as I'd like it to, though.

It Tickles Me

that we're LJ friends, but your world and existence is so totally foreign to mine, and it appears that the only common interests we have are baseball and [ profile] columbina, but hey, I think that's enough to work with!

I think I'll be down in Houston in May on my way to/from my brother's graduation in West Texas. Would love to meet you and Rob for a drink (heck, do you drink? You never know in Texas!).

Well, I doubt that you dye your hair and you may not celebrate Christmas - I don't celebrate it in any kind of a religious sense, myself - but to me, all that is just details. And sure, drinks sound good, if we can manage the scheduling! (Neither one of us drinks a great deal, but yes, we drink.)

He's reasonably harmless.

Well, I eat, too. :-) But yes, I don't dye my hair or celebrate Christmas (though it appears I'll be doing just that with Clare's family this year), and I was thinking of Guild Wars and quilting, too.

I have to tell you that this prompted Col to IM me to ask if I'd ever considered making a GuildWars-themed quilt. (The answer is no - it absolutely had not occurred to me.)

I am so, so sorry that anything I said led to this horrible result.

I'm tempted to bribe her to make it so I can send it to you and horrify you. Although, actually, I have my limits on cruel and unusual punishment and I think that exceeds them.

Although we have more collective sense than that, I bet someone somewhere is making or has made an online-game-themed quilt even as we speak. Alas.

I went hunting - there will be a post somewhere on this subject later. (It may be on the quilt weblog, actually, but if so I will put up a link, because you NEED to see some of these!)

RE: Finishing the quilt for your sister. If you can find the time, I'd suggest doing it. The death of a parent can bring a lot of weird tension to the surface in a family, and a really touching gesture like that quilt thing might help everybody feel a little better. It's so "Chistmas-y," you know? Plus, if your sister DOESN'T come, she'll get this amazing, thoughtful gift in the mail and then she'll feel horribly guilty. So, win-win!

I know you're right, I'm just aggravated with her right now. She's having a much-delayed rebellious phase and it's annoying me.
