++ Picked up my gorgeous dress from the tailor today, 'cause I'm going to the opera tomorrow! Did like 4-5 hours of late-late-night volunteer work for an opera gala thing last month and got free tickets, which I quite happily surprised my boyfriend with. He, in turn, is taking me out to a reaaally nice fancy place for dinner beforehand, which I haven't been to since our first date almost eight months ago. :3

++ Ate something! Lawl, I mean like solid food-food. Chicken salad for dinner! I'm still getting over this obnoxious cold/sinus thing, and apart from water/tea in the last two days I haven't eaten much other than tomato soup with crackers for two different lunches and some cereal. I'm trying to keep eating regularly but it's hard when you're sick and just *not* hungry.

++ Watched the series finale of Secret Diary of a Call Girl. Yeah yeah, guilty pleasure show, but it was fun, crazy, rather silly at times and had some great season arcs and great characters. Too short! Seasons 2 and 3 were my favorites, I think. It's an addicting show, and I never thought I could even get (that) attached to a 20-minute soap-opera/drama series. Also. BEN. IL Ben SO HARD. I adored him when I started watching and apart from Callum Blue's character ('cause I've had a crush on that actor since 2004) he's my fave on this show.

++ Job hunting: not going so well so far. Gaaah. If I could do transcription for a company or something, that would be ideal. I'm a fantastically fast typist, very good with spelling/grammar, and have a good ear for words. Or even more babysitting. Just SOMETHING. :|

++ Unrelated to everything but is made of win: I want THIS shirt. So very, very badly. Saw it when it first came out and am now reminded of its existence. Only thing better would be to assemble the costume itself (I found fabric you can buy online for his pants!) which would be much more time/money consuming.

++ I made some awesome jewelry, which you can see/love/share (or buy!) RIGHT HERE at my Etsy store, along with most of my yarn-made goodness. (If you're interested in anything, let me know what you think of pricing 'cause I'm still getting used to working it out.)

I'm making more still, but this is what I've done so far:


I doubt it'll sell very quickly, which is why I'm also going to be trying to sell it at the First Friday morning thing downtown next Saturday - it's usually much easier to sell it in person than online (plus no shipping fees).
