So last night at midnight B came to me and said, "Stac I think the job I have tomorrow you will want to go on"

me - "huh"

B - "it is the site of where The Shining was filmed"

me - "Whoa"

Then we went and looked on Wikipedia - The Stanley Hotel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanley_Hotel

Yarn P0RN!!!!! AKA Trip to Brown Sheep

Friday, my spinning friend L and I went up to Brown Sheep in Nebraska. We got up at zero dark :30...picked up bagels and were on our way. We got a little lost from the mapquest directions on the way, but got there at about 12:30. R ran around. The lady that worked the store loved R and we got to all go on a tour. He was in heaven with the machines. We were in heaven when she showed us the piles of "scraps" we could go thru. It was pretty funny. When we were going thru the scraps Sherry was walking R around meeting all the other ladies there. Yeah he was hamming it up.

They were a bit low that day but we still made out. I picked up a bunch for friends, and this plus a 30lb "bump" for myself.

The trip back was not so great. R just screamed at the freaking TOP of his lungs I was mortified. He was obviously ticked off at being back in the car. Well maybe he knew what was coming up. Yes people 10 minutes (less really) from Cheyenne we RAN.OUT.OF.GAS. No that was not a typo...yes you read that right...yes we ran out of gas. Thank GOODNESS L had road side assistance. I was freaking miserable dying freaking out, but we arrived in Cheyenne at the gas station 45-60 minutes later then it was Starbucks...thank you Starbucks...ahhhh

Damn You Bloglines!!

*She screams with her fist in the air...very melodramatic here.*

Yesterday it appeared as NO ONE was updating their blog. NO.ONE. Well I finially just clicked on the categories and saw that there were updates. But what shook me to my core was I saw that Brooklyn Handspun UPDATED her store!!!! I SAW THAT I MISSED IT!!!!!!! More importantly I MISSED THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lets take a moment of silence.

Okay that's enough. Well I have a confession...I bought a Mac!!!!! OMG I have gone over to the dark side. Oh yes I have. Last weekend I took 3 hours of classes at the Mac store. ALL FREE! How cool is that? I am learning how to really use my machine. I got the machine to create my website. WHICH I have ALREADY started. I am hoping to have something up by the end of the month!!! YES just a FEW weeks away. I am already testing it out on the .mac site and it is PRETTY!!!!! I will be moving my blog over there too when the time comes. ALSO - I have made a commitment to myself. EVERY.DAY this week I will blog. YES well starting today. I PROMISE a picture a day. I got a gazillion FO's here to share...so I gotta get on the horn. So stay tuned. R just went down for his nap. I have 12 more rows on an important FO so I am gonna go move. Until then I will share with you my stitchmarkers that I am sending to All Things Heather - She had a great charity drive last week. I am SURE you heard about it.
See you all tomorrow. I have to package up a bunch and take pictures from my trip to Brown Sheep...oh yeah...ROLLING in Fluffy!
