Audiobook for commute: Naked Sun by Isaac Asimov. I've probably read this before, but that was a long time ago and I've forgotten the plot. So far, so good (approx 2 hours in). I don't think this will ever be a favorite, but interesting and engaging enough to keep the road rage at bay.

Knitting: I am primarily working on my Knitting Olympics project. I am making the Firebird socks by Tsarina. They are beautiful beyond belief, and very hard. Tsarina doesn't pull punches on her patterns. So far I have the first foot done including the heel. I am stalled at an instruction I REALLY don't understand, so I will take a deep breath and tackle that one tomorrow. Maybe even a picture . . .

School: The copiers are broken again. The computers still don't work, and the IT dept has started blocking many educationally useful sites. I'll argue with them tomorrow. The kids were everything I expected after a 4 day weekend. Still, it's a better job than anything else I can think of.

Good news: I love the Olympics. Watching K get into the figure skating while pretending not to care is really cute. I wish I could snowboard.

Bad news: My best friend was diagnosed with cancer. The socks were going to be for me. Now they're for her. Major surgery for her the beginning of March. Crap.

Final thought: Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday. I haven't celebrated church holidays for a long time, but I still define my year by them in many ways. Watching my friends post what they're giving up has made me think if it is still a meaningful holiday. I am still undecided, but will be pondering that all day tomorrow.
 
 
 
 
 
 
What's the instruction that confuses you? Maybe I can help. Probably not, but I can try. :) Can't wait to see pics of the socks!

Sorry about your friend. That sucks. I hope that her prognosis is good.

I'm giving up as much refined sugar as is humanly possible for Lent. No cake, cookies, ice cream, candy, chocolate for the next 40 days. It's going to suck royally, but I am hoping to break my sugar addiction. I know how to eat heathfully, and even enjoy lots of veggies and such, but hell, I just like sugar too much!
