There's Something in the Air...

So Davo got a new tat the other day see =
Very sexy, you can't see it very well but its a wolf howling at the moon with obviously some tribal borders... And Gemma is now really keen to get her dragon tat, and I still want another one, once I've saved up more.

In other news I have a job interview on Tuesday. Now people who don't know me might see me as a competent, smart, professional kinda woman.
Everyone who does know me pick yourselves up off the floor and stop laughing.

I applied for the job on Thursday, got the call back on Thursday afternoon. Friday I was buzzing waiting for Tuesday so I could wow them with how perfect I'd be at this job. By Friday afternoon, I was sure that this was the worst possible job that I could possibly get, sure that i'd never like it, sure that the money cut in pay would be grossly overwhelming, absolutely positive that I would be a drooling jittering wreck by the end of my first week. Now I've practically convinced myself not to even bother turning up to the interview. Why waste everyones time here?

Lol, I'm so self-sabotaguing at times it's scary. Maybe I should see someone about that. Anyway, I think I'm going to go to the interview. Be honest about my concerns, and see what they say, they don't give me the job no big I've already got one.

If they do and are happy to negotiate things I'd be happy to go. We'll just see, it won't kill anyone to go right? Worst of all it's at a yarn store! You'd think I'd be jumpin for it.

Speaking of yarn I signed up for the southern summer of socks this year. A whole summer of hand knit socks, how brilliant. I have been stockpiling for a couple of weeks, I think I might have a problem :)

Theres enough yarn there for thirteen socks plus left overs, I doubt I'll get that many done, unless the boys finally let me knit at reception. I don't see why not it would help create a comfy and homey atmosphere and would be so much easier to get people to buy houses off us. We could even make it a reward thing, but a house get free socks, okay maybe not cause I tend to hoard my knitted goods worse then wool.

Anyway, I've got some knitting to do so catch ya later.

Thank God For Democracy

Being an avid fan of The West Wing, and knowing as much as I do about American Politics (lol)
I have to say I am really excited that Obama won. He'll be a breath of fresh air to the somewhat staggering America. Yay him...

But I have to admit, with all the speeches, and news reels, and pictures, and rumors, and policy plans etc (etc, etc... damn those politicians know how to make a point) My turning point in this whole things was definately this, seriously check it out.

Who could not vote for a guy willing to hold some crazy ladies half knitted sock!!! God bless knitters, we're all loons.

The only exciting news is my new pretty:

I love tat's I'm already planning the next one but you'll just have to wait and see what happens. Peace Out
