I apologize to everyone who tried to do the visited state map. :( I have no idea why it did that. If I figure it out, I'll repost. Promise?

Anyway, I went to SnB on wednesday, where I spent most of the time untangling yarn. Sigh. I'm trying to figure out if I have enough yarn to finish my stole. I'm praying I do, otherwise I'll have to leave out a section (which I hate to do, since I absolutely love long scarves and stoles. The longer, the better).

Anyway, some eye candy for you: (thanks to Gwyn). I know I have some friends who I think need a date badly, but tell me--do you think this is...extreme? And hilarious? And Lance is cute, so why doesnt' he have a girlfriend yet (maybe it's the mormon thing, I dont' know)? I hope no one ever does this to me. Given that Asian chicks are "hot", I'd end up with way too many potential suitors.

And good book to read: "The Eight" by Katherine Neville. My brother and I had a "disagreement" that women write better characters then men do (for the most part; there are some excellent men writers), and I was thrilled that the main characters in the book were interesting women, and my brother had the gall to call me a "Fem-Nazi!" I am feminist, granted, but I don't think my brother understands the difference between feminism and extreme feminism. I don't go about male-bashing (I like men, too!) but I believe in equal rights, opportunity, and I am liberal. What I like about books (particularly mysteries) that are written by women is that they seem to be more focused on character, and men tend to focus on the plot and action--but I believe that character can drive the plot and action. And if I can't believe in the characters, I can't believe the action. This is not to say that all books written by women are awesome and have wonderful, believable characters, I've read crummy books with characters that I want to beat about the head and throw down the drain, but my point was that I think because women tend to be more perceptive about people, the characters may be more deep and interesting. But that's just my point of view.

Okay. was the last day of class (YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) but here is further news. I have been going to SnB for the past, what, month? on Wednesdays at 7 PM. So, I thought to myself: All right. This is goign to rock my world! Keep me sane with my clinical rotations!

Well. Guess what.

I got an email from the chair of my program, which said we have online chats (which I knew about) on Wednesday at 7 PM. Argh. Does this mean that I have to live and breathe audiology all the time now? Does this mean that without that two hours a week, I may never actually finish my projects?

On the upside: Clapotis is comign along nicely. And i found a lovely yarn store in Toronto on Queen St. And spent some money there,and the store was so beautiful. Lots of yarn, more lovely yarn than I've seen at my local shop.
