East Coast Tour!

Well, friends, heading out on vacation tomorrow...starting the week in Florida, flying home on Wednesday AM, and then driving up to Gloucester, Mass to see the Johnson side of the family! While I'm away, check in with my spoilee, Thistle as well as my spoiler, Perenelle and say hello to both of them! Back on 8/10, have a great week!!

Game 5...Pffffbbblt.

That's the sound of a raspberry. Which signifies me getting nothing done on Game 5 of the swap. Instead, I offer you some yarny goodness. This is the awesome prize Heather sent me for winning earlier at camp:

It's Malabrigo (squee!) Baby Merino Laceweight in the "Ibiza" colorway, and I could literally stare at it for hours.

Along with this Leaf Lace Scarf pattern by twistedknitter:
And this is the start of a Baby Surprise Jacket for my new little homie, Cooper. Yarn is two strands of Online Supersocke held together:

Happy Friday!!

Swap stuff...

Nutty week this week, friends, doing a little travelling and working on the road. Am in Nashville, one of my favorite towns, and looking forward to spending the weekend with my best mate!

I've been zooming around the HSKS universe looking for eggs, but haven't found any new ones yet. Will keep looking. And as far as my house assignment goes for the week, I give you...

Billywig Fizz!

Fill a tall glass with ice and then add:
One shot blue curacao
One shot blueberry flavored vodka
Splash of pineapple juice

Top off with Sprite or 7-up and garnish with a cherry and lemon slice. Nom!!

Hope everyone's having a great week - will post pics of my awesome gift from Bevin and some other fun stuff when I get home!

My boggart. Seriously, the thing that will make me move fastest in all the world is this:

Riddikulus!! And voila...

I think I do pretty good work, if I do say so myself...

Game 2, Part 2 and Three Truths and a Lie Guesses!

Gah, was busy with the holiday weekend and didn't get a chance to post this!

Quote: "When in doubt, go to the library."
Quoter: Ron Weasley

Here are my guesses for our house game, Three Truths and a Lie:
Bevin: coffee
Celestina: kids
Dan'Azarella: wrestling
Helga: TV
Rowan: piano
and Winnie: country music

And, just because, 5 random songs that have come up on the iPod today but have provided me with great background sounds for a very productive day:
"Caring is Creepy," the Shins
"You Look Like Rain," Morphine
"Amie," Damien Rice
"Expo '86," Death Cab for Cutite
"Grace," Jeff Buckley
