I've heard that purple is "in" ...

... but since when did my foot have to be fashionable?

Yup, I slipped down a few stairs on the top of my foot. On Christmas Eve (morning). Went to get it X-rayed on Christmas Day (and it's true that an ER on Christmas is quite quiet). Get to hop around on crutches for the near future. Yay. Still determined to Get Things Done while in the city, thus the aching muscles from navigating stores, malls, coffee shops, etc.

I was going to post a picture of my purple foot, but I seem to have forgotten to pack my USB cable so it'll get posted once I get home, along with the 57000 other pictures I need to post. The good news is that the knitting project (a knitted log cabin quilt-pattern afghan) is nearing completion, though I don't know if all the ends will get sewn in before I leave.

Three days to go...

and I'm feeling the time crunch. I'm frantically trying to finish up some knitting for Christmas (don't even want to mention the fact that I still haven't bought gifts for several people), and might have the major project presentable, if not 100% done, on time. Photos to come after Christmas...

Finally watched the Survivor finale (and a few other random shows, like the OC and an Ugly Betty rerun) while working on said knit project, and right about now I really dislike Jeff Probst, what with his obvious favouritism, hatred of certain contestants, and the usual misogyny. Quite unprofessional, and along with the snorefest that was this season (other than the Yul/underdog victory bit), I think I might call it quits on this show. Really, I can't stand the guy right about now, and it's not worth sitting through his idiocy to get sucked into another crapfest season.

"unbelievably disturbing"

Ooh, the real editor is back. And about time, since I was coming here to post this link.
Yet another reason to like Kate.

Unimpressed with blogger's service, part two

I don't know if this is part of blogger's plan to force users to switch to their new beta accounts, but I'm not impressed. If the new google plan in a beta (ie. still in testing) they shouldn't be stripping everything but the barebones features from the standard accounts, without any explanation to be found anywhere on their "help" page. Did I mention that I'm not impressed? I had wanted to blog a few pictures, but it seems as though I'm no longer able to do so. I'm not in the mood to sign up for a new account now, though, and as I have no intentions of linking a personal blog to my work gmail account I'll be forced to do so at some point soon. So not in the mood for this at this time of night.

(What a way to end off the month...though I suppose I still have a few catch-up posts to go)
