......went to lunch with a friend; finished up my ball gown; balanced the checkbook; ran errards (grrrrrrrr); cleaned the house (well, mostly); made phone calls; answered (some of my) over-due email; thought of--& made preliminary steps towards--a present to make for niece lindsay's birthday; updated the caardvarks' chipboard gallery (marvelling at the creativity of the international card-makin' community!); IM-ed with pals; worked on wednesday's article for typicalifragilistic; watched torchwood and doctor who; discovered two hilarious new blogs (called vicious chicken and monkee maker; how could you NOT click on something called vicious chicken or monkee maker??!); realized i MISSED international talk like a pirate day (dammit!); went nuts (and i do mean kerrrr-aaaaaaaay-zee!) at the (sad, sad) scrappin' trends closing sale; finished my library book; started another book & didn't like it; started a third book i think i might maybe like; bought, wrapped & bestowed an adorable pair of "ugly dolls"; lost my voice (the cold from hell mutates yet again!); did even more writing, emailing & IM-ing; and finally got to meet this little guy:
