on friday, i got home from work intending to hunker down and do some knitting but my knitpicks order didn't come. in protest i like, went to bed at 10pm which is the earliest i've ever gone to bed since elementary school. i woke up at 5am though and that is the boringest most lonely time ever. i'll never make that mistake again !
on saturday, i went grocery shopping and got stuff to make meyer lemon orange lemonade with a new lemonade method. i zested a navel orange, a bunch of meyer lemons, and two regular lemons, and juiced them. then i put the zest in a dish with sugar over it and poured boiling water over it to dissolve it.
once it cooled, i strained it and added the liquid to the lemon/orange juice and added some plain cold water to it. overall i think it was pretty good but like, i don't really like orange lemonade so i should've just made regular lemonade. when i was done, i took the garbage out and got stabbed by a piece of glass that was in the garbage bag for some reason. oh my goddddddddd. i'm completely not grossed out by the human body but it was the third grossest injury i've ever gotten.
it looked like someone ripped apart a piece of latex with a hook. that's the only way i can describe it- my skin was just like, ripped open. i could see my arm intestines or whatever ! it doesn't really hurt though for some reason and barely bled?
after all that, my knitpicks order WAS there, so i started making some socks for mouse. by the way, at that point i'd bailed on going to mouse's show and going to the fights because i was sick (his friend who was fighting won in the first round by rnc !), so it was just me and shitty cable tv and yarn. so like, socks take fucking forever to knit? why does anyone do this? just buy socks ! i'm going to persevere because i want mouse to finally have something i knitted, and also because it won't be sock weather for like, eight months, so i have time, but i probably spent like 6 hours on it and i just have a cuff and two pattern repeats. which is like 2.5 inches of sock.
i really need to use my real camera for stuff like this
mouse came over after the fights to bring me some butterfly bandages (pictured above) and bandaged my cut. an eagle scout is like, the next best thing after a doctor ! he stuck around and ate some food for awhile and we watched the twistiest turniest SVU ever
ann-margret and jaclyn smith played sexy old ladies who did stuff or something
after mouse left, i unfortunately put on saturday night live in time to see tina fey be a total shitty anti-feminist sellout ! you guys know it isn't news that i'm continually bummed that 30 rock includes more and more rape jokes and more and more "lololol fat !!!!" jokes and stuff, and that tina fey did that totally fucking asinine vogue interview that made me think she is the dumbest person ever, butttttt
i tuned in just in time to hear tina fey go on a rant about what a skanky slutty skanky whore the woman jesse james cheated with is. like a poisonous vicious WEIRD rant about it, in her women's news update. i'd like to remind tina fey that SHE WROTE A FUCKING MOVIE WHERE SHE GAVE HER CHARACTER THIS LINE:
Ms. Norbury: Ok, so we’re all here ‘cause of this book, right? Well, I don’t know who wrote this book, but you all have got to stop calling each other sluts and whores. It just makes it ok for guys to call you sluts and whores
like, it's bad enough that she said all of that, but as angie points out, she did it on the episode with justin bieber when like every pre-teen girl is staying up late to watch. like blah blah it's hard to be a famous woman blah blah but stop selling out other women to get famous and make men laugh you fucking turd !
anyyyyyyyway. on sunday, mike came down and we picked up mouse with the intention of going to that cherry blossom festival, but we missed the samurai sword demonstration and parking was atrocious- like, too atrocious to deal with for a festival that would not include a samurai sword demonstration. like, trees are cool, but japanese house ALWAYS has trees ! i'm also not really sorry we missed it because i forgot that it would be overrun by creepy japanophiles !
so we went to capo giro instead. i got half pistachio half chocolate and we shared a bench and read an issue of mad magazine
then i watched mike and mouse box each other (really, i was just in charge of the timer, i was knitting) and then we got indian buffet. then mike came back to my house and diana and nnamdi came over and we hung out til midnight ! i guess that wasn't too bad considering i was sick.
christina is coming back from boston today and i truly wish i'd kept the apartment neater ! all my lemonade dishes are still in the sink. i'm really excited to see her though because i feel like it's been an eternity. i'm sure pizza feels worse because christina is her #1 bud. i wish i could be home for their reunion.
p.s. animals are cool. my friend went to lakota wolf preserve this weekend and i'm so jealous. jeanne and i are scheming ways to get there now even though neither of us drive !
