Captain’s Log, Stardate 12.02.2005

This time it’s Robin’s fault.

Seven Things to Do Before I Die (Lord willing):

1. The salvation of my family and friends.

2. An eating tour of Europe—who cares about sight-seeing? I want to eat the food!

3. Visit the Holy Land

4. Become a successful author

5. Learn to write a book as fast as Robin or Cheryl

6. Learn to speed read

7. Read all the books in my office.

Seven Things I Cannot Do:

1. Eat uni (sea urchin) sushi

2. I am human, so I’m capable of any sin thanks to our sinful nature, but I’d like to think I’d never cheat on my husband.

3. Stop eating potato chips

4. Pass up a free book

5. Stay off the internet

6. Stop coveting more purses

7. Think I have enough books

Seven Things that Attract Me to My Spouse [romantic interest, best friend, whomever](not necessarily in this order!):

1. Oooh, he’s a cutie.

2. He plays volleyball! I love volleyball. Plus he’s athletic.

3. Hey, he’s an engineer, he’s smart

4. He’s got a sense of humor, at least

5. He plays guitar! He’s musical!

6. He emailed me! Hey, it’s mutual!

7. He doesn’t seem like he has too much emotional baggage or a side-life as an ax-murderer.

Seven Things I Say (or write!) Most Often:

1. LOL

2. You know what I mean?

3. Idiot/stupid (usually when driving)

4. Brat (usually at Heather)

5. OH MY GOSH!!!

6. Hello?

7. What—blah blah blah?

12.04.2005 I forgot to add "dork."

Seven Books (or series) I Love:

1. Bible

2. Anything by Kathy Tyers

3. Anything by Betty Neels

4. Anything by Grace Livingston Hill

5. Everything by Jane Austen

6. Ranma 1/2 and InuYasha mangas

7. Harry Potter

Seven Movies I Would Watch Over and Over Again:

1. BBC Pride and Prejudice—heck, most Jane Austen movies

2. Firefly

3. martial arts movies, for the great fight scenes

4. Most old-fashioned musical films, especially Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers, for the terrific dance scenes

5. Bubblegum Crisis, the old one and the new version

This is too hard, there aren’t too many movies I’d watch over and over.

12/04/2005 I can't believe I forgot Lord of the Rings!!! I would definitely watch those over and over again.

1. Heather

2. Pammer

3. Squirl

4. Mir

5. Mary G.

6. Dream

7. Paula

Knee: The physical therapist kicked my butt yesterday. My IT Band was tight so she massaged it, which was about as pleasant as a bar brawl and just as painful.

I’ve also been getting a terrible upper back ache from the limping and uneven distribution of weight when I sit and stand. Please pray if you get a chance.

Writing: Commiserated with Robin on contest judges who tell you to do stupid things that are completely against good writing craft.

Doing critiques today, after doing so much website work yesterday.

  5. Camy, I just have to say I think you're the coolest. I mean that. Your honesty is a hoot.

    LOL, I almost put on my list of things that I say, "Idiot", usually when driving" but then thought, no, you'll end up getting an intervention about love thy neighbor, so I took it off. But, you know, there really are a lot of people who drive like idiots and since I've become a Christian, at least I've stopped flipping them off. Baby steps :)

  6. Hey again, I had to read your sevens because I just did this tag too. We have a lot in common! Jane Austin!!!! Gotta love her and all the movies of her books. I did a tribute to Jane Austin in my book...one of my characters is a Jane Austin fanatic.

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
