35 going on 12

Why yes, Wednesday was my birthday. Thanks to everyone who noticed- I think it was a record of well wishers this year.

I had a good day off (I like to take the day off when I can). I had a lovely massage, a pedicure, sushi dinner and watched the Pirates of the Caribbean Two. After all, nothing makes you feel better about getting older then a Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom sandwhich.

Hubby took me to visit RELoad, the kings of custom, artist-made messenger bags. I got to order one with pockets for knitting, velcro free, and with custom applique. I'll get it in September sometime, but I'll show you the graphic when the artist sends me the proof.

Dad sent me this robotic dinosaur:

Because I love dinosaurs and toys. Someday I'll grow up. Not.

Mr. Dino loves to scare the snot out of cats. He also had an adventure at work with a few unfortunate grad students! He also seems to like finished socks.

Oh yes, socks. My first toe up pair, and they won't be the last! Look at the obsessive compulsive stripe matching:

I'm working along on the Ballet Camisole. It will be great, but the stockinette is a bit of a snooze. Looks like a big red circle now, so I won't bore you with the pics.

I am behind in posting pics of the great Doily Monkee sent me for eating that grub:

and my finished quivit scarf:

That's all for now!

Mr. Dino is tres cool, and I can't wait to see the custom bag!

The socks look great! Glad to see I'm not the only obsessive-stripe-matcher. =)
