Jaywalkers - day 28 @ 11:22 pm

Current Mood: confused confused

Just realized it's been over a week since I finished the first Jaywalker sock. Still haven't finished the second one. I pushed pretty steady the first few days, finished the leg & heel and got a few rounds into the foot when I just couldn't stand to look at those SweeTarts/Candy Hearts stripes any more. So I took a break and knit up another pair of toddler socks for CIC-knit's summer sock challenge. I've got maybe a dozen or so pairs I've done over the past few months, to be mailed in by month end.

I tried getting a photo of these little caramel beauties but the color kept washing out, then I couldn't get the Kodak software loaded to transfer the pic from the camera, and when it finally did load it refused to acknowledge the camera was there. No clue whether there's some conflict with Gazer's new wireless headphones' transmitter* or low batteries or me just being too sleepy to figure it out.

In any case, the heck with it, I'm going to bed.

And speaking of Woot, they had Gazer's cool mp3 player on sale again yesterday, and since mine's damaged (the tab that holds the battery cover closed broke off) we ordered one for me. And it uses the same SD card as my old one. So that's a bit of good news.

*Yes, Gazer, it installed on my login too. No biggie, just letting you know I've got it too.

ETA: Apparently I lied to myself about the bed thing. It's been an hour and I'm still here in LJ-land, too "down" to sleep, and I've gotta get up in just over five hours. Not sure how to describe it, not quite depressed but deep into "heavy sigh" territory. Wait a sec ... *checks calendar* Yep, it'll be a month Wednesday. Welcome to the hormone-induced insomnia I call PMS. I'd give it a couple of days, end of the week at most.

Figured out what was happening maybe.

Our video card fan was jamming again.

I had it get hot enough to lock up the video

I got it spinning again and things seem normal...except that somehow ZoneAlarm forgot EVERYTHING.

Ah, one of *those* days. How'd the headphone project go this morning?

I may not have done it long enough...I didn't notice a difference...I've decided not to worry about it... if the band cracks eventually I'll come up with something then.
