Bring in the Clowns

The Hero is nearly complete, the sleeves are growing, and I’m growing bored, I may need to cast one something new for my own sanity. My friend Stephanie wore a cabled rangoli hat that she knitted, I fell in love at first sight. This is not hers, hers is a beautiful green color. Anyway, I’m thinking of doing it with Noro Kureyon. I’m thinking it needs to be cast on tonight…

I’m not sure how the interview process really went. Now it’s the waiting game. So in the mean time, I’m catching up with knitting that I missed out on while I was studying.

Currently I’ve been obsessed over Bravo reality shows, I’m watching Paula Abdule being followed around by a camera crew. Why this interest me I’m not sure. Except for the fact that she’s really not got it together at all. Oh well, I’m being entertained at her expense, I think that means that I’m the one that’s not all together.

Sweet Home Alabama…

Well, I know that I’ve been absentee for the last few weeks. I apologize. I am however finally here! Yes, I am in Alabama, my new home.

We’re living in the hotel and really, it’s not that bad. In fact, I’m getting quite spoiled. My dinner is cooked for me Monday-Thursday, my room is cleaned daily, the people are friendly and know me on first name basis. Jonathan’s work schedule is a bit of a pain, but we’ll get used to it, he goes in around 2:30 p.m. and gets home around 2:00-2:15 a.m.

As for me, I am already on the prowl for a job. We got here last Monday, and not without incident, but I’m so tired of talking about that that I just give up. Maybe I’ll have the energy later. Anyway I knew from Ravelry that the knitting group here met on Tuesdays, Tuesday we had spent the day unloading our truck and though I didn’t feel much like going anywhere, Jon was gonna be gone so why not? I went to the knitting group thanks to the help of my new friend Stephanie that I found on Ravelry. When I got there and we all started talking I found that Stephanie is a copy editor for the local paper, The Montgomery Advertiser. Before I really knew what was happening she had my resume and I had an interview with the editor of the paper set for tomorrow, Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. The interview itself doesn’t really make me nervous, however the fact that I have to take a spelling and AP style test first thing when I get there makes me want to throw up! I’ve been studying but I’m not really feeling any better about it. The tests that I’ve been taking online are so unnerving.  I really hope that the one that I take for them is not half of what these have been. Either way I know that this refresher is good for me, but it still is succeeding in making me feel completely retarded.

As for knitting I have completed the front of the Hero Pullover and I am well onto the sleeves. I’m hoping to get it done in the next week, I’m ready to move on to something new, even though I haven’t be consistently doing this for a long time, I feel like it has been on my needles for a long time.
