My cousin posted some pictures of me at other cousin's wedding... *shakes head* you know, not to be vain or anything, but I do clean up awful well. 30 looks good on me when I choose to look it. Much like today - Dad and I have been invited for dinner over at Ruthy's so I'm in a dress and my hair's up.

Yeah, you can really tell I don't sew. Several hours into the actual stitching bit of the book I'm binding (and after an hour or so of pre-punching the holes with a straight pin) and my fingers were killing me. Cara said "have you got a thimble?" And I went ... -_- *facepalm* right, yes, I has the dumb. Unfortunately dinky fingers strikes again - Mom's fingers were at least twice as thick as mine, if not more (she wore a size 7.5-8 ring, I wear a a 3.5-4, depending on the day) so wearing any of her thimbles feels a bit like inserting a clapper into a bell. Unwieldy to say the least. Luckily the actual stitching part's 2/3rds done already... I think about two epic movies worth. If the internet picks up by the time I get home from dinner (it's been running like uphill flowing shit since last night) I may stream me some ben-hur, ten commandments (feeling the need for a yul brynner fix, hmmm) or gone with the wind. Luckily the rest of this project can be achieved with rubber cement, cause owww.

It's still gray and gross outside, but I think the absolutely foul mood I was in all week is finally lifting some, thank goodness. Depression blows.

Need to figure out something to do with or for Dad for Father's Day. I think maybe Sunday Brunch. You can never go wrong with feeding that man.

ETA: I also may need to own Rome on DVD. Mostly because of the just-discovered "All roads lead to Rome" feature.

T-8.5d. Have a few things to do beforehand, and a few lists to make. Right now, I've got some shoes to find.

Heh

You know, Rome gains an amusing layer of subtext if you think of Vorenus and Pullo as Asterix and Obelix.

Just sayin...
