Baby's first (see the cut-tag)

My nephew is almost one year old! Wow, time flies. He is, of course, the cutest baby ever. I'm flying to Dallas in two weeks for his big birthday party, which will be very festive for us grown-ups even if he's only interested in the cake. Last night I finished his birthday present. Sis, you are NOT allowed to look yet! Collapse )

Otherwise, I don't have much to report -- in fact, I've been sitting here for 20 minutes trying to come up with something! Well, okay, most of that time was spent looking at photos of the nephew, but hey. Today was mostly a series of annoyances, such as dropping by a fave restaurant for takeout then learning they now have a takeout surcharge, and the bartender (who takes orders) cheerfully asking if I wanted something to drink while I waited, then putting the $2.50 iced tea on my bill -- gee, I thought it was just her being friendly. Or when I went to the yarn store to exchange some never-used circular Addi needles for a much longer size (I need a 60" for this blanket), only to find out that nope, they don't do exchanges, and I had to shell out another $16. Now I have over thirty bucks invested in needles that I probably won't use after this blanket's done. Ah, well. Tomorrow will be more successful, right?

sg1padawan is hosting an Old Skool Friending Meme, "for those people who remember all the cool shows and fandoms that were around before 2000!" Excellent idea, though as I told Ancarett, I'd just like to find more people who are over 30! I'm not used to being The Old One. ;)

Oh, and via several people on my flist: Starbuck and Six go to Wine Country. I'm so amused that they're BFF.

Now I think I'll curl up on the sofa and watch some DVDs. Energy and productivity are vastly overrated.
