I stayed home today and played Xbox this morning. Then I started knitting again. I'm proud to announce that the scarf no longer looks like roadkill. It actually kind of looks like a scarf now. In other news, I FINALLY finished Faulkner's As I Lay Dying and have started The Sound and the Fury for the 3rd time. My mom finally admitted that she's freaked out by the starfish I put in the bathroom. This is one of the starfish I got from the dollar store in Panama City. I can't remember if it is the one I bought or the one I got for free because I bought something. Can you believe I got 2 starfish for the price of 1? I wasn't even sure I wanted the first one, but that's okay. The perfect one lives in a curio cabinet now, and I thought it would be nice to display the broken one on our bathroom lavatory. But Mom wanted me to move it because "it would be hard to clean around." Now, if memory serves me correctly, there are several other things that need to be moved in order for her to clean the lavatory. And those things are smaller and harder to move. But I got a basket and moved the crippled starfish from the lavatory to its new home on the toilet. That didn't last long. Now it's on the floor. Speaking of Panama City, I think I'll help clean up my room by getting all the free Panama City junk I picked up together and create a scrapbook. Just what I need... another project. But as with all of my other unfinished projects, I'm really looking forward to it, and probably will enjoy it until I take the notion to start yet another project, and abandon the scrapbooking idea for at least 6 years.
