I'm on deadline

Captain's Log, Stardate 06.23.2010

In case any of you were wondering why I haven't posted regularly for the past month or two, I'm on deadline. My email Inbox has 800 messages, I haven't checked most of my email loops in forever, and my house has accumulated tumbleweeds of dog hair and cat-sized dust bunnies. (It was a choice between exercise and cleaning house, so I was selfish and chose me. :)

I've even reduced the number of days per week that I cook for Captain Caffeine, who has taken it all like a trooper. Although I think he's on deadline at work, too, so we've been accommodating to each other.

Right now I'm going to a couple writing conferences, which is making writing for deadline a little hard, but not impossible since most conferences give you a bit of downtime every day. It's also probably been a God-thing that my internet has been splotchy, forcing me to write as opposed to OCD-cleaning out my email Inbox. (Don't snicker at me, I know some of you completely relate!)

I'll be back with your regularly scheduled randomness and book giveaways in July sometime.

I hope you guys are all having a great summer! What are you doing? Anything special?


  1. TOO funny! I'm out my Inbox at this very moment.

  2. It would take me DAYS to do that at this point.

  3. Go, Camy, go!!

    For the record, I think I'd have a nervous breakdown if I had that many emails. If my inbox goes over 100, I freak out. LoL

  4. I love reguaraly scheduled randomness. LOL.

    My inbox stays at 500 always. ALWAYS.

    Praying for all your deadline dreams to come true!!

  5. lol too funny, but i can completely relate. so much hw its not even funny. i have still been passing out the bookmarks and leaving them in random spots its nice to see people walking around with the bookmarks. ok well gotta go got a deadline for my essay for english class! i know you will finish though...hope to hear from you soon.

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
