Vote on a name, Startrek, and knitting.
The eye is twitchy.
The body didn’t want to get out of bed.
The mind was having some odd NCIS/Top Gear cross over like dream. I do not recall the details, but lets just say it was odd.
I very much wanted to not acknowledge Monday’s existance, but unfortunately the universe and my conscious “adult” mind had other plans.
I have a little project on the needles right now. And I must say I am really not liking the Caron Simply Soft Eco yarn anymore. I absolutely am just being annoyed with the texture of the yarn. I don’t know how to describe it other than.. skuzzy. I will still finish the project I am working on though, as well… I want to be done with this yarn. And if I use it all up then I can just make sure I don’t buy it again. Well… if I absolutely need yarn and the only option is that, then yes.. I’ll buy it.. but I won’t necessarily like it.
The project is not for me, and I haven’t a clue how it’ll turn out. Honestly I’m winging it. Which.. once the project is complete, you’ll find that pun amusing.
This little project did though, teach me something quite useful which will allow me to go forth and do some other projects, so all in all it’s a good thing.
The amazing Cathie, who is a buddy of mine over on Ravelry was totally awesome and sent me one of her spare copies of “Dead Until Dark” woohoo. Now I get to start the entire series all over again without having to wait for the library. Once I’m done, this one will go on the stack of books I need to send to Guy in the next care package. She also sent me a cute little bookmark she made. It was an attempt at some lace, and it is quite pretty! It’s pink, but it happens to be the 1 shade of pink I like. All in all, I say this was a WIN. Cathie rocketh most verrily.
Oh.. So Friday Mother of Mine and I went to see StarTrek.
IT. Was. Freaking. Amazing.
Yes, yes it was. I highly enjoyed it. I want to see it again. (But I won’t until it’s on dvd, because I’m being “responsible”)
I won’t go into detail because I respect that not all my readers might have seen it yet. But just gotta say.. freaking.. awesome.
They cast the film brilliantly, and if they decide to keep the Star Trek saga alive with the younger cast.. I welcome it.
And Karl Urban was just perfect.. PERFECT as Bones.
Well alright, actually everyone was PERFECT. I would end up just listing the entire cast if I went that way, so I wont.
The rest of the weekend was spent pretty quietly.
I did laundry. Did a few other chores. Knitted.
NCIS season 3.
BattleStar Galactica 2.5
The State Within, Part 1 (well.. not part 1, but disc 1 of 2) – Which was really good. It’s a political thriller by the BBC, set here in the US. Specifically in D.C. and it’s all about a terrorist attack on the US by a British Muslim and how the British Ambassador in the US has to handle it. (played by Jason Issacs) It’s very good. A heck of a cast, and I can’t wait to see the second part.
Underworld – man I forgot how much I love that movie. Mom never saw it, and as Rise of the Lycans releases tomorrow on DVD (and netflix is sending it to me today), I gotta have her catch up.
Tonight we’ll watch Underworld Evolution
Okay, on to the knitty gritty. I need ya’lls help.
