Doritos for Dinner

Oh, and by the way? I know - it's DESERT, not DESSERT. It was 47C in the desert of Morocco, not 47C in the dessert of Morocco (previous post). Being an anal Virgo, it bugged the hell out of me. Come to think of it, I don't remember having dessert in Morocco...

Right, not a good day Knitsters.

Work? Crap. I mean, I'm fortunate I work with a fabulous bunch of people, but some days... and some people.

Commute home? Crap. Decided on the express bus vs. the train. Dumbass decision on my part. Ended up taking longer than I thought it would.

Ophelia? Little Dude Atticus hooked his nail on one of the stitches on the stitch holder. Guess what snapped and unraveled? Guess who nearly threw up? No, not Atticus... Guess what I have to restart just below the neckline thanks to it being tinked back for me, free of charge?

Uh huh.

Oh, then Bell Canada came by to install service for my new neighbour next door. Guess who's service they accidentally disconnected? No, not hers. Guess who has to wait for them to arrive tomorrow between 9am - 5pm to fix it? They left, not realizing they cut my line.

Guess who'll not be paying for this repair?

I had Doritos for dinner. You know it was a crappy day if I, a celiac, had forbidden Doritos for dinner. And they were good, dammit. Guess who'll pay tomorrow?

But - all is not lost! Hey, go have a peek at Wendy's Mara by AS - very cool. And - tomorrow is Downtown Knit Collective night! Which is very good, because I get to sit with the cool, in-crowd - Anne and Lorraine (oh she of the envious FI book collection).

Wow - I'm so "aw shucks" at your comments on Amphora! Thanks! She is a very entrancing knit - it's amazing that four colours can create such an amazing design. You just zip through it quickly. Oh, and Rachel H.? I will somehow bring you over to the FI Dark Side, seeing how you hooked me on socks...

(Now, a moment of silence for the Edmonton Oilers...*sniff*)

Here's to a much better day tomorrow (one where I'll be able to LOAD PICTURES successfully - what's up with that?)!

Oops - this wasn't your day at all, was it? You certainly deserved having the Doritos, hopefully you didn't pay too much for them the next day!
No comment to the last Oilers-game, it's just way too depressing. I'm still in mourning over here. :(

Wendy said...

Aha! Now I've fond your blog, thanks to the comment you left on mine!

Hope today is better than yesterday!

Hey Brigitte- Cats and FI don't mix- and don't they just love to drool on it? Delphine has had a Kitten-Chow mishap as well.
Sorry about your crummy day, but it's all good. You can stay home and work on your projects- hope Bell doesn't show up early for a change.

Cynthia said...

Sorry you had such a bad day! Let's hope you got all the bad stuff out of the way for a long while.
My Emy kitty hasn't yet tinked anything for me - but you can see in her eyes that she's just waiting for the right moment. I'm more likely to come home to chewed up bamboo needles. I have to hide them from her.
(we won't tell the gluten police about the Dorito incident - hope you don't suffer too much for that)

Take a deep breath, exhale. Take a deep breath, exhale. Repeat.

At least you have the DKC to look forward to tonight. I've promised the boychild I'll go to his soccer game. Ah well. Have fun for me, won't you? He won't even let me knit this week.

Oh, and on the FI thing? We'll see. My basic lack of hand eye coordination is likely to make you run away screaming before your objective is achieved.

Woah! I always thought it was so-o cute how all these kitties pay so much interest in knitting. Now I'm glad that mine thinks it's a waste of time!

Chris said...

Naughty, naughty, naughty Atticus!

Hmm, arent't there at least a few flavors of Doritos that don't have wheat flour in them?

Anne said...

Sorry I missed the DKC meeting Brigitte -- but I know Lorraine will keep you in line!

Don't you just love Bell? Right now we have a phone line running across the front of our property, though the culvert under our driveway, and up to our neighbours which is about 300 feet away! Of course, we have to be careful not to CUT this line while cutting the lawn right? When will they fix it - well, not sure, we have a problem with their line and this is the only way we could do it, blah blah blah.........!

Uh oh, that sounds like a bad day! Hope today was better! Bad Atticus.
