Weekend Shopping

Originally uploaded by xxrrrxx
I got some super steals at Cargo Largo this weekend!
My best deal ever is the 2 new lamps for our living room to replace the random lamps that have been place-holders-for-something-better for the last 2.5 years. $11.25 each. seriously. I loves them. Nik strongly dislikes them but acknowledges that there probably isn't a lamp out there he would like anyway.
I also got some organic/health food; 20oz Box of Sweet Rice Flour(1.80) and a bag of Namaste Foods Gluten Free Perfect Flour Blend(4.50) that are probably destined to be gifted to friends. Bag of organic kettle chips (1.80), green tea, and Jones Cola (.80 each).

No yarn this time though. They had a couple bags of lion brand cotton and some random acrylic blend. boo.

Christmas Yarn

My brother got me a gift certificate to the yarn shop by my parent's house. This weekend I went with my mother, who is on the verge of picking up knitting again, to pick out some yummies.

The blue is Jil eaton minnow merino (classic elite). WW superwash merino. super soft. destined to be mittens for my Aunts 50th birthday.

The yellow is sock yarn. This is my 3rd ball of yellow sock yarn. I think I need to stop... ONline Supersocke 100 Holiday-Color. I was really tempted to buy enough for a sweater but I restrained my self from committing to a third yellow sweater.

I Remember a Dream!

I have to tell you about the dream i had this morning because I remember most of it and that rarely happens.
I was walking down a street with...someone nondescript.... and we came upon a man with a gun who demanded my money. i said something smart ass back to him, essentially daring him to shoot me. And he shot me in the left leg. Strange thing is, it really didn't hurt. Then I somehow pulled a muscle in my other leg (fell down??). We decided to walk to the hospital. Which was attached to a catholic church. odd. I don't think i was bleeding and strangely the pulled muscle hurt a lot more than the gunshot wound. We wandered around the church looking for the hospital entrance while a funeral was going on. Found out it was a children's hospital and they did not have emergency services so we just went back to the hotel we were staying at. And I think in the back of my mind during the hole thing I was on some kind of undercover mission.

This dream was probably fueled by watching 3 days of Stargate SG-1 were the members of SG-1 are invincible and critically wounded over and over but never die. because they are heroes and can't die. Who else would save the world? SG-2? The Tok'ra? I think not.
