Temping today. I am sure there are a lot of different temp jobs out there but it seems that mine are all exactly the same. Different drive to get there, different building. But its the same chair I plop my arse into, the same telephone system I curse, the same internet that I surf 85% of the time and the exact same people that cross my path. Different faces & bodies maybe - but the same 'people'.
As I sit here today wondering if what I type is being monitored (they can do that you know) I dream of the day when I will have a normal job again. Normal being I can plan on a solid work week, solid pay, form friendships that will last beyond 1 to ?? days and actually have goals in my job. Right now my biggest goal is trying to not potty all day so I don't have to ask someone if I can run to the bathroom.
I know, things could be worse. I mean - Walmart. That was worse. The telemarketing job that got me thru college, much worse.
Ok. I feel bettah now.
Working on sock number 102859 now. I am a determined woman. The whole sock experience has pissed me off to the point now where I am not giving up this time - and one way or another... a sock will be made. Working on a toe up version. Its actually a very nice pattern, the whole cast on method scared me a bit but worked out very well. What I am worried about is that it seems to be really big. Not that I have tiny little feet - but its just looking kind of large. We'll see. If not, well - I am well practiced in frogging socks lately. If you know of any basic sock patterns - using #2-3 sticks - gimme a shout. I'm a girl in search of her perfect sock pattern.
Also spied this during my travels. Ohh...ahhh... I've been looking for a tank, was leaning towards one with a cable down the center but that one is pretty. I like the neck shaping on it too. Me thinks this might be next on the sticks.
Oh...and the Fall issue of IK is out. Take a peek!
Thats all for now. Everyone say Hi to the guy monitoring this - holla! Will have sock pics tomorrow... maybe! Have a good one!
