Just a minute - in April


I've been meaning to play along for a while - usually everytime I read one of Curlypops' entries, but reading Jenaveve's blog this morning reminded me.

So - it's just a minute.

Making...

My mind up...about my life and where I'm going. But no decisions yet.

Everything is a WIP right now. I cast on and cast away. One day I'll finish something. Right now my head's not in it. Thank god for embroidery patterns.

Watching...

the wheels go round. I just love to watch them roll. No longer riding on the merry-go-round, I just had to let it go. On a side note, itunes does not seem to sell any Beatles (even though that's Lennon I'm quoting there) ...what is that about? Anyone know?
On the screen - watched '16 Candles' again over Easter, 'VH1 Storytellers' with Broooce, and in our household the teev usually stays on Discovery/Discovery Science. And I'll always tune in to 'Top Gear'.

Reading...

Lurking round blogs, eyeing the Mike's book, pondering knitting patterns. Ravelry.

Listening...

Just got the Decemberists new album. It hasn't really grabbed me though, I'm not really enjoying the "concept". Had an itunes moment and downloaded a lot of old Jesus and Mary Chain on the weekend. Also got the new Bob Evans on itunes, but haven't listened yet.

Whatever-ing...

You all know most of my whatevering goes on via Facebook. I tend to leave it running in the evenings while I spud on the couch, and someone or other will usually make me laugh. Lots.
And I really need/want a holiday. Away.

The decisions will come I'm sure. The first step is the thinking, letting the ideas brew like a good cup of tea.

I think the Beatles thing has something to do with ITunes not being able to get the rights. Not sure why though.

A lack of Beatles on iTunes has annoyed me for a while too. Hummph. But hooray for Top Geear, which is always good for a laugh.

Hope you get a holiday soon. Always good for the soul.

Well the Beatles thing on iTunes is definitely irksome. I own all the vinyl, but I don't want to go out and buy the CDs as well, just for a song or two.

I think you definitely need a holiday Steph.
I must admit that I thoroughly enjoy your nightly facebook escapades... they always give me a chuckle!

Hmm... this not being on Facebook has a few downfalls methinks. Work ban it so it would mean I'd be on here all night if I joined up. Wait, I'm already on here and it is night.

J&MC, now that's bringing back memories circa 1991-2.

Jenaveve, go on, join Facebook. Come to the dark side!

Yep, remember going to see the J&MC at the Metro (?) years ago, getting right up the front and getting crushed by goths. hahaha.
