Tew's Day

Happy birthday to any_contingency!

State of the 'Song
Day four of massively interrupted sleep argh.

So I remembered that hey, I am a member of the Sundara yarn group on Ravelry! Let's see what other people got for autumn!

...yes, this is actually what they are passing off as autumn. %$&^&^%

I don't know how to make stash pics visible to people not on Ravelry, but here's the pink/violet, which is almost certainly up for swap or sale; here's the green, which I have decided I actually like, but it is not autumnal you guys. At all. *sulk*

It turns out you only get one vote! So if you voted for me an Dave yesterday, please to delete one and vote for me or Dave.

If you have not voted, please do! Click here, click "Shira Lipkin" or "Dave Rini", and click the VOTE button. Make sure you actually tweet the vote when prompted, or it shan't be counted. You do not have to be local to vote!

Dave and I have an Unsekrit Pact that if one of us wins, we are inviting the other to our ice cream party.

Workshops at Wyrding Studios!
I remind you! This will be awfully fun; it's the sort of thing I do as a recharge anyway, visit Kyth and Amy and the menagerie and make stuff, so making a party of it? Awesome. If you need an emotional recharge and like making stuff, this is a great idea. I'm going to the September 4th one.

Labor Day Weekend
Hey locals: Are there any existing labor day weekend plans? Because I might do something that Sunday or Monday if I can talk Adam into it and if there's not already a lot going on that I've skimmed past on Suspects.

Daily Science
Building on an enzyme found in nature, researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have created a nanoscale coating for surgical equipment, hospital walls, and other surfaces which safely eradicates methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), the bacteria responsible for antibiotic resistant infections. (To which all I can say is now? Too fucking late.)

Work. Work is particularly jam-packed this week, so - hugs if you see me! Please? Possibly nap, possibly writing, as Elayna will be off partying with lunalovegoddess and family; I hope for writing, but my lack of sleep may kick my ass. Diesel.

Okay, I would be highly aggravated if I paid that much money and got that for "autumn." I don't blame you for being unhappy. :(

I seriously thought they'd just accidentally sent spring. That looks like spring, right?

That green in particular, while pretty, is entirely too bright to be considered an autumn color. The pink and violet would have worked, maybe, if it had also contained some brown or a deep gold in it.

I haven't checked the Sundara group yet. Are people really pissed?
17th-Aug-2010 01:27 pm (UTC)
Mostly no, but a few are puzzled and disgruntled.

The green I don't get at all but the purple I find really pretty. Autumn? Maybe fashion wise, but not at all what I would have expected.

Alas, I have nothing of equivalent quality that is not already earmarked to trade for the pink/violet. I love the color, although it's really not autumn, not even if it were paired with something warmer than the pea green.

I love the feel of the yarn itself - so soft! But the color is not pleasing to my eyes.

*eyes those yarns* *eyes the materials on her workbench for the autumn updates* DOES NOT COMPUTE.

I'm glad now I couldn't afford to sign up, I would've gone for autumn and been seriously disappointed too.

I was really looking forward to finally playing with fingering silky merino! Alas, no.

Thanks for the plug! We really do need the help. Yikes.

I know the GF offering for the bake sale didn't work last time (I suspect perhaps because it was late in the game), but would you be willing to offer something again? Maybe this time more eyeballs will land on it early on.
18th-Aug-2010 12:27 am (UTC)
Of course! When are you running the bake sale? Hopefully I can get to testing recipes soon...
18th-Aug-2010 05:33 pm (UTC)
At this point I suspect we'll start by the beginning of next week. Maybe sooner? Gotta check with Shaz.
18th-Aug-2010 09:47 pm (UTC) - Elayna Jade: Better Than Epcot
Thanks for letting us borrow your dear daughter- she is a hoot and a half, and we all had a great time. BTW Bryanna says that this was her best birthday ever... and as she's been to Epcot for a previous birthday, you can let Elayna know that she is officially Better Than Epcot.
