Favorite project! (So far)

So, I finally got around to it and am posting my favorite project, knitted from a pattern...maybe it's no surprise to know that I picked my red sweater (from Rebecca). It's my favorite because I spent three years knitting and frogging, and finally figuring out how to put it together. It makes me look a little bulky, but it IS warm. And it is RED. And it's got cute cables! This is not to say that it's perfect. It's not. There are some mistakes here and there, but unless you're looking for them, you won't see the mistakes.

Here it is:

Apparently, I also took a picture of my knee.
And here is a close-up of one of the cables...

So that is my favorite project in all its glory. I don't have least favorites, because I usually rip them apart or frog them, so there are no pictures in existence of any hated, reviled projects.

As far as job interview, I have NO idea what will happen in the future...I did my best, and we'll see. The person told me later (in a later email, in response to a different question) that they are not scheduling any second interviews till mid-May, and "if we decide we like you, I will contact you. Thanks! :)" (smiley face included in the email from her.) Luckily enough, I'm busy these next few weeks (wrapping up the semester here and wondering how I will give practical exams to 50 students during finals week!)

Last night, I saw Disturbia which was an interesting experience. For one, it was nice to see an old fashioned style thriller that was more psychological than bloody/gory (that is not to say that there isn't a little violence and a little blood along the way, but it's not excessive). My beef with the movie is that I wish the suspect (creepy neighbor dude) played the role a little more ambiguously, rather than playing "a bad dude" straight from the beginning, it would have been a little better if you (audience) weren't sure if he was honestly bad or if he was just creepy. (like the scary neighbor in Home Alone.) Second interesting thing is that I have not watched a movie with about 50,000 teenagers and about 2 moms. Interesting experience. I am so not the target audience for this movie!

I do wonder though, if these teens have ever heard of Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window, which is the basis for this movie. I wasn't sure how they'd pull it off, because Hitchcock's movie is just so beautiful and you have no idea if the neighbor is a murderer or not. I wonder what these teens would say.

Oh! And Bob Saget on Thursday was AWESOME. I'm glad I knew he's one of the most vulgar comedians on the circuit, so I was prepared, but he was sooooo hilarious! The thing is, I'm not even big on the cussing thing or anything like that (same with my boyfriend) and we were both just cracking up at his jokes...and vulgarity...and he does it with a smile. If you're not easily offended (over 18, too, I guess...haha) here is a link to a song that he's sung, called "Danny Tanner is not Gay". DO not play it around bosses, small children with big ears, or parents.


I also started a swap over at swap-bot, if you want to sign up. It's nothing to do with knitting, but is letter-writing. Here it is, if you're interested! If not, there are some interesting swaps, too!
When I grow up
