(no subject)

The knitting event on Saturday was just awesome. A ton of people showed up, so many that they ran out of supplies before I even got there (like 10 minutes after it started). Luckily, I had been to Joann fabrics earlier that day and had some supplies with me. Ben, Rose, and Nick came along, and Ben (who was already learning to knit) and I taught Rose and Nick how to do it. Rose seems to prefer crochet, which is cool too. But I was amazed at the number of people who showed up to learn how to knit and crochet. And people want to start a knitting club on campus too. Yay!

By the way, I'm getting a knitting blog, so you non-knitters bored with my knitting excitement won't have to read this kind of stuff if you don't want to. And for those of you interested in this sort of thing, I'll keep you posted.

In other news, my life has been relatively uneventful. Is it wrong that recent national disasters have inspired pieces of the novel working itself out in my head? Well, the lead characters are the Goddess of Bad Weather and the God of Natural Disasters... who seem to have an exciting year planned for the world. Yikes. "The tsunami is over, and I'm bored," said Annie. "I know! Let's wipe New Orleans off the face of the earth!" "Great idea!" said Andy, as he destroyed the shark tank, sending hordes of aquatic carnivores to help clean up the carnage. No, I'm not planning to include that in the book. Seriously, this has been the year for crazy natural disasters. Fortunately, there are lots of charities you can donate to. Because you're a nice, caring person, right?
