What’s up, posting delays? I’ve been trying to be on the internet less outside of work. I guess it’s working. I finished the baby blanket I was knitting right on time for Becky’s baby shower. Phew! I was kind of worried about that, but I’ve been getting better about meeting crafting deadlines. I went to a ladies’ craft night last night and got simultaneously inspired and totally intimidated by this one girl’s incredible knitting skills. Oh man, I’m a n00b.
This weekend, O and I went to the beach. I got a speeding ticket on the way there. Automatic frowns. But once I got past that and decided I still wanted to go to the beach, we had a really great time. We went to Carolina Beach and Kure (pronounced Curie) Beach. O got this incredible shirt:
We walked up on someone else’s beach wedding, so I’m sure they appreciated the shirt. We also got beach-themed nick-nacks for some of O’s coworkers and a decent meal with some chatty restaurant folks. I got an iced esspresso and the ice cubes were made out of frozen coffee, which was kind of weird, but I appreciated the thought. We considered paddle boating around a lake, but they’d drained it that day and the girl at the booth told us it was a terrible idea. Good work, saleslady. After all that, I drove slowly all the way back to Chapel Hill and made it home without incident.
The next day, I got drunk off of Yuengling and white wine at the baby shower and pretended to try to learn the guitar. Matt V. was very patient with me, but I was borderline bumbling. Oh well. Next time will be better.
