On Productivity

Does anything feel better than getting shit done? It is the only thing that actually reduces stress for me. I guess that makes sense, though it's not always convenient.

What I did today:

- Got gas

- Stopped by the sale at Abundant. I'm finally at a point where I feel like I have enough yarn. Really. That point exists. But that doesn't mean it wouldn't be stupid of me to NOT pick up $70 worth of primo fuzz for $28. Do I look stupid to you?

(I may be going through a color phase. I was also wearing my favorite socks today. Oddly enough I don't own any clothes in these colors.)

-Mailed off little Floozy to her new home. I got the handspuns re-shot yesterday (and made a lightbox! More on that later) and some of them listed. I'll do a shop update post when they're all up, possibly later tonight.

- Returned school library book

- Turned thesis in for printing and binding

- Went to health center to get prescription (the nurse who saw me turned out to also be a knitter- I managed to pawn a business card off on her and point her towards Twisted for possible lessons :-P )

- Returned regular library books. Picked up a book on weaving.

- Bought mother's day card, advisor gift, loaf of bread

- Bought foam head to block hats on (I've tried coming up with alternatives because foam heads are creepy, but nothing works as well. And they're only $3.)

- Picked up printer/birthday present, finally. My dad is going to be unhappy when he learns it's not an HP...the one I wanted wasn't on sale anymore, which put the wireless, double-sided-printing HPs out of my price range. And dammit if I didn't want wireless-ness and double-sided printing. I don't think I need to print enough that the slight savings on ink will be that big of a deal. Plus the one I got was $100 off. Sweet.

- Wrestled printer into submission and made it print things. Hooray!

- Filled out mother's day card, advisor gift card

- Blocked hat

- Picked up thesis

And now, I am friggin' hungry. The rest of the week includes more fun errands, such as "return keys", "clean thesis office", "take sister to school visit", "write goddamn art history paper so I can graduate" and maybe even "get new brake pads so I don't careen into the Willamette." Oh, and washing the dog, which I was supposed to do today, but I didn't quite make it (business hours be damned!) Fun.

PS: This is important. I'm pretty sure everybody should see this video: Two words: Ballerina ninjas.


  1. Damn, you were busy today! All good things. Looking forward to info on your light box...

  2. I don't know if that's a silly question but I've never even knew that foam heads existed! I've used a food bowl that resembles my head so far. It's good but not excellent. Can you show me where I could get on online? (I'm not from the US)

  3. Hmm, I don't know where to get them online, at least not anywhere that would ship internationally. Mine is from Sally Beauty Supply, you might check and see if they do it... otherwise google around for "foam wig head" or something similar.
