Social Butterfly

Strangely enough, Hubby and I did end up having accidental Valentine's Day celebrations on Thursday. I've told this story several times now and am rather sick of hearing me say it, so let me sum up: Both forgot it was VD, weren't going to do anything special anyway. Got reminded at work, were suprised. Had other things to do, got busy and forgot again until we were halfway to Mellow Mushroom for relaxing dinner before returning to the office. Expected the worst, but got there literally 5 minutes before the crowd arrived. Had nice big booth to ourselves, respective pints of KY Bourbon Barrel Ale and cider. Was very nice time.

Friday we hung with Raellyn and Bug. We went to Oasis, then back to Toad Hall for chocolate cake and Corpse Bride. Dear Gods, Raellyn makes cakes that are so good you'll slap your mama.

Saturday Janis and Paul came over to hang. Janis helped me photograph my stash, huzzah! We ate at Han Woo Ri and I confused the hell out of some American-born Korean boys behind the register by asking for yakimandu for Hubby (the dumplings on the menu are steamed, not fried). Good thing I didn't bust out the three sentences in Korean that I can remember to order my ramen! (Hana ramyon, juseyo!) We made a side trip to Sqecial and then hung out at Common Grounds for a bit. Long but fun day!

Sunday was SNB, and I actually made it at a half decent hour! I broke down and bought a sk of olive green Nature Wool to go with the rusty red one I already have. I want to work the two together in some sort of colorwork pattern.

Monday we drove to Etown to our trusted CPA and had our taxes done. $1600 back, coocookachoo! Though it will probably go to the old damn house and getting it fixed up... but if we do rent it out then what we paid to fix it up is tax deductible, sez Ms CPA. When we got back we went straight to KnitFlix (SNB + movie) night. We watched Wool 100% and it was pretty good, if also a bit weird, sluggish, and Japanese.

Tonight? Sleep, please! Quiet, please! Staring off into space and not having to run anywhere, please! I am tuckered out.

Oof the socializing! I'm glad you got a nice return! I hope it works out with the old house.

Indeed! You know how you felt on Monday? That was me, Tuesday. Sort of like "please gods, no more peoples!"
