*wince* Feeling a little poor

March 2nd, 2006 (11:09 am)

current mood: nostalgic and poor

Despite having about 6 weeks to go, I decided to order the female sibling unit's b-day present online. I'm not 100% sure yet about what I'm getting her, but so far I've picked up some yarn (doesn't really figure in in the concept of "present" but it's a colour she seemed interested in) and some Muppet DVDs. (<-- Okay... is that for her, or for everyone?? I have to admit, I'm really looking forward to those arriving. I *loved* that show as a kid. It's also her fault for reminding me about that show. She suddenly had a strange tune going through her head from the Muppets the other day; and of course, she just had to share it; and put it in my head). >_<;; I'm still debating if I want to try picking up anything from Handpainted for her or if there are any other books she wants, but knitting stuffs is really chancy; she's too likely to buy whatever interests her. Beyond these though, I have no idea what else to pick up for her (I might have to do the male parental's shopping as well). >_<;

Mystery Shawl 3 is limping along. I don't know how many times I've frogged and restarted that thing now; maybe over a dozen?? Yesterday, I discovered that I really can't count beyond 1 and tore out my work 4 or 5 times. I *had* gotten up to ~row 17 of chart 2 (I was hoping to transfer to a circular around then...) ;_; but finding 2 needles with extra stitches in a row... I tore out the whole thing. And restarted. And restarted. And restarted again. I've since used the Emily Ocker cast on, magic loop, and two circular needle methods. I'll give it this much, I'm certainly "learning" a lot. (Not really since it's out of the brain within minutes of doing things). ^^; It's been a frustrating project and I've most of chart 2 and all of clue 2 to do before tomorrow? I don't think so. Hopefully I'll be able to get caught up by next week though. (<-- Whoa... dream on!) ^^;

And Rosetta has posted a summary for Skip Beat so FB hopefully won't be too far behind now. ^_^ It'll be interesting to see where things go this chapter. The little teaser on Hakusensha's site sounded more like what we'd been seeing in the past couple of chapters and not so relevant to where things may go next so just about anything's game.... as long as it's not an aside chapter. :P

Quiet day so far, but it's time to hunt down lunch. :P

Gravi-You feel Lucky

Speaking of muppet tunes... Is it the one that goes:

Do-dooo do-do do-do. Mihnah Mihnah! Do dooo do-do do-do Mihnah Mihnah!


I had that in my head last week. -_- I think they used to play it on an old Dr. Pepper commercial or something.

ROFLMAO!!! That's exactly it! XD

Oohhhhh, is that where it came from. I haven't seen any Muppets on TV or what have you for some time, so I had no idea where it might have come from. That was such a hilarious episode. ^^;

Yes...my niece wouldn't sleep UNLESS I hummed/sang that song to her when she was a baby. I think that is the only muppet tune I know. It's strangely haunting. ^___^

I always thought they were saying phenomenon O_o

I heard that song on the radio once and I've been trying to find it FOREVER!

I loved The Muppet Show!! Fantastic! And now that I've seen it's on DVD, it makes me want them, even though I have no money...

The world is cruel...

Hajimemashite. Watashi wa Ana. ^^ Gomen, I friended you--we have some mutual friends (such as Lina-sama. ^^), and I have to say, knitting is just the best thing in the world. *lol* Shopping for family is always such a debateable thing--unless you're really close, I guess. (I know MY sister would get so picky with me.) Great idea, the Muppets DVD. You can't not love those guys. ^_^

Aside from that, I'd just like to thank you for all that translating work you do. I've visited your site a lot, and I really like all the information on it. (The drama CD summaries make me sooooo happy. XD) I study Japanese, demo I'm only a 2nd year student, so your summaries and translations always help me when I'm trying to read through one of the raw chapters. (Easier than getting a dictionary, you know? ^^)

The muppet song... 0___0 I've actually watched the original of that clip. Kowakatta desu... Strangely haunting indeed. *rofl*
