Major Friends List culling to occur soon. I will also be changing this to be friends-only for all posts. Nothing personal. Post if you wish to remain on the list.

Imbolc!

4 million entries in one day, I know. But this one is about presents!

So, some of us have big families, huge friend groups, and small budgets. I want the time to craft lovingly for everyone without going bonkers, or the funding to give awesome presents, but things get ridiculously tight each year. So the idea came up last year of giving friend presents at Imbolc!

Some facts: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imbolc
To summarize, Imbolc is typically celebrated on February 2nd. It's an Irish festival, with lots of good things going on, like purification, healing, bonfires, all those good things.

The thought was that you could tell friends that you'll give them presents at Imbolc, but do the family ones (or really close friends) at Christmas, thus diversifying. It also gives a unifying day for people of different faiths to all celebrate together.

So, who thinks this is a good idea? Who wants to wait until an Imbolc party or get-together to give holiday cheer?

Crafting Post

You'll need to be on Rav to see the pictures. Otherwise, I did what I can with descriptions. Help?

Stupid yarn.Collapse )
Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; Some blunders and absurdities crept in; Forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. -Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

No Phone, no cry

So, I seem to have lost my phone on the bus this morning. I'm going through the proper channels to track it down and/or possibly replace it. I'll be potentially unreachable until Friday of next week (May 29th). If you need me, please email or call Daniel or Carol.

15 minutes to remind you how wonderful language really is.

no, I don't have a cat

It occurs to me that there are many names of ballroom dances that would make excellent names for cats. For example:
Bolero
Tango
Mambo
Cha-Cha
Rumba
Samba
Those are the ones I can think of.
And Happy Birthday, Reid.
