Ladies and gentleman! Big news over here!
I have made pants!!! Yep, it's true. You see those bad boys being modeled by my fabulous self? I made them with my own two hands. They are pajama pants that I made in my sewing class. At one point, I was terrified that they were going to look like clown pants, but I totally dig them and I can't wait for it to be cold so that I can sleep in them. And one more thing I can cross off my list. Next up? I'm going to make a quilt out of all of my old t-shirts that I can't bear to throw away, but that I have no other use for. I'll post pics when I finish it. We'll see when that happens. I'm checking things off the list, kids. It feels good.
In other news, after the earthquake yesterday, I was immediately concerned for my friend Jean who lives in LA. But less than an hour later, I got this email which made me laugh so hard that it must be shared.
Yep, I'm okay. I was sitting at my desk when I felt the earthquake. At first I was like, omg, what fat person is running on our roof? But then it kept shaking for like 10 seconds, and I could hear the glasses rattling in our cabinet. But nothing fell or was damaged and everything seems fine. All in all, did not feel that strong, thank goodness.
Sure, a fat guy on the roof. That's a perfectly reasonable assumption. Jean, thanks for the laugh!
Also, happy birthday to Kristin! Because I haven't mailed her card yet, so I'm cutting corners using the blog.
I did not do any flirting with my guitar teacher (GT is his new blog name) last night, because me and Mr. Guitar were not getting along yesterday. But GT did laugh at my jokes about wanting to go all rock star and smash the crap out of it, so we'll see. I do need to pick a new song to learn though. Please send suggestions. Don't pick any hard crap.
My song of the day is Wildflowers by Tom Petty. It's in the running for the next song I'm going to learn, plus it's so pretty. PS- maybe only listen to the song without watching the video because it's a little depressing.
