So, the cold's still with me, it *snowed* all day (and is expected to snow for the next few days), but above all, I've been summoned for jury duty. *sigh* All female members of this family have now been summoned for jury duty while none of the males have (to FSU's and my knowledge). It's made for a strange day. ^^;

On a plus note, Scherherazade's Slippers are mostly progressing well; I haven't run into any further issues with the pattern. (I should've checked the blog posts for this project before casting on. One blog mentioned "modifications - creative chart reading" or something along those lines. That would've been rather informative actually. ^^; )

In any case, I have one more heel to turn and get the Confetti pair up to row 105 before going back to the Jitterbug pair. I'm not sure why, but I seem to be doing both of them still. This is bad because Leafling is waiting on the sidelines but without any needles to be put on. (Not unless I finish the Celtic Braid socks in record time that is. Hah! Yeah right.)

I really want to get my hands back from these socks. Unfortunately, I only have the one pair so when they're engaged with pointy little sticks, they can't be typing away on the keyboard. This is definitely problematic. >.> (Even more "problematic" is that it took three tries to spell that one word. The brain is devolving into serious mush at the moment.)

And to top off this whine(?) fest, cherry flavoured extra strength Neo Citran tastes like powdered acetaminophen with pseudo-cherry flavouring added to it. It's tweaking at the gag reflex. >.> With that lovely thought, I'm going to go crawl off to bed and hope the terrible cherry gunk kicks in and whisks me off to oblivion. Barring that, I'll read Leafling's pattern and try to make sense of some of the weird stitches I'd heard were supposed to be in there. (Good sleep material. :P)

Tea! I haven't been drinking as much of that as I'd like (compared to other warm drinks). I think I'd feel better if it wasn't so *white* outside! ^^; I hear you guys are enjoying sun and warmth (and smog). Enjoy the warmth! I'll be huddled over here shivering at the chilly sight outside the window. :P

Wow, snow! It's been in the 70's here in Maine. I continuously bitch about the hot weather, so cooler is better for me.

Hope you're feeling better, though.

I love hearing about your knitting, and seeing your pictures, especially since I'm sort of impaired when it comes to crafty things. I admire people who can make beautiful things. :)

We were at about the same temperature last week but winter came back with a vengeance. ^^; I'd be more than happy to swap weather systems/temperatures. :P

Oh dear... hope everything improves soon!
Too much to hope for a short trial? :(

Sadly, the next five days are supposed to be snow, snow, snow, and blah. -_-; Aren't you in the region for the upcoming storm (tomorrow I think)? Not looking forward to still more white stuff falling. *sigh*

No idea about the trial yet. Jury selection is in early/mid-May, and you don't find out what the trial is until you get there for selection. Hopefully it'll be quick. ^_^

Some areas had hail or snow or mixed yesterday and overnight and early this morning. It was down to 0C. More mixed than here in Richmond. Sun&cloud, 8C currently. Tomorrow shows about the same. I didn't realize AB was getting blessed for so many days ~_~ Hope the package doesn't get too delayed because of the white stuff.

So you might still be able to avoid being a juror...

*laughs* If I'm lucky I'll be able to avoid it. ^^; Lucky you for getting off so lightly! We're into cold and snow for a bit. *sigh*

*hugs* *sends some Texas sunshine*
can't believe it's still snowing up there while it's clear blue sunny skies here x_x

I can definitely use the sunshine! >.<;; We're into the cold stuff for a bit. >.> Hope all's going well with you! ^_^

Is it a civil or criminal trial summons? Maybe there will be some details that spark a story once the socks let you go and you can start writing again. It sounds like you could use a speach to text program, so you could just dictate the stories as you think of them, then go back and clean them up later...

As far as I'm aware, there are only criminal jury trials over here. FSU wasn't selected, but the case she'd been summoned for was a B&E, and I don't recall what it was in my Mom's case. >.>

Can you imagine the SPR crew as the jury in a criminal trial? The jury room interactions could get crazy.
