And the horses say Yay!

I am kind of liking having the lounge with no furniture in. It means I can spread my fabric out all over the show and test my wings (literally), and if I wanted to, I could even practice hooping indoors. Alas, it gets painted today and all the stuff goes back tonight. This does mean I'll have a table to sew at though. Sitting on my ass on the floor with my knees around my ears, operating the pedal, cannot be ergonomically approved.

I've discovered an intrinsic problem with bamboo. It breaks. At least, the bits that are thin enough to be lightweight do. Looking for alternatives that are light and flexible and don't snap under, say - wind pressure.. hmm. Gotta say though, the fact that my vision is becoming reality is quite exciting. Yes, there will be photos. Because, you know, it's not real till you photograph it and put it on the internet!

So far, my boss has not come through on her promise of something to do. I have an interview for this other job tomorrow. These two things are ping-ponging around in my head. It's weird - I'm efficient enough to have completed everything I need to do and have asked for more work, yet feel slightly guilty for playing games and surfing the net as much as I do because no work is forthcoming. I'm tending to see this as some sort of sign.

There was no dancing on the weekend. There was even minimum walking, and as a result my toe is back to its normal size. Still hurts but, pain I can handle. Swelling and redness scares me when it's on one of the extremities that I need to keep Doing My Thing. So far I've kept myself occupied and off my feet for nearly two whole days! (this may be some kind of record) Yay for projects, I say.

This week is going to be one of frantic mad rushing around finishing things, collecting things, and probably fixing things. Getting a warrant for my car, they can't do it till Monday, this is a bit too close for my comfort really. Tonight is a stitch-n-bitch session in which there will be much stitching and not much bitching, simply because there isn't much to bitch about.

Yesterday, I did manage to pry myself away from the sewing machine long enough to have coffee with the lovely rivet, whose company always refreshes me and who adds value to my life in ways that transcend the standard definitions of value. And as an extra added bonus, I saw Kenny! I didn't think he was still in Wellington. So yesterday was a day of happiness in my people place.

There's a sleepy-eyed boy who has been making me smile a lot lately. Normally I'm scared of boys, but this one just keeps on making me smile. I like that. It's hard to be scared when you're smiling.

I like this dance.

Hahaha the business manager just came in and wanted to see photos of the wings!

(this is one of the reasons i like this job - the people are pretty f'n cool)

Lalala, time for more games and net surfing..
