Say that again?

So I get a message from my apartment complex yesterday. I'm thinking "Crap, what do they want now?"

"Hi, this is your apartment complex calling. We just wanted to let you know that to thank you for staying with us for four years, we are going to give you a new Dell laptop. Have a nice day!"

Um....what?It's freakin' crazy insane!! Makes for nice Ravelry and knittyboard surfing in front of the TV.

Now, let's WIP out a little knitting.I made a little progress on my MS3. This is my current "complicated" project. This is not one I knit on in front of the TV....that would be a no-no....doing that is probably why I missed a yo (or two) that I just noticed. However, I am working on getting the Outlander books onto my iPod. Perfect for this especially since I have read the books a thousand times. If I haven't gotten you addicted to them yet, don't worry, I will.

As a side note, Diana Gabaldon just came out with a new book, Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade, which is a spin-off series from the Outlander books. Yes, I pre-ordered at B&N and got it the second it came out of the box...as I will with the next one when it comes out in November. She's been a busy little bee.

The Flaming Monkey is getting closer to having a partner. I am almost to the heel turn, but ya'll know what that looks like so I won't bother you with a picture. Hopefully, I will have a picture of a pair soon! I got quite a bit done on it at my SnB last night. I had my first internet meeting. Jennifer from pieKnits came by our SnB last night. I have read her blog for quite a while and knit some of her lovely patterns. This was the first person that I "knew" online and then met in real life. It was kinda cool, thinking, "Hey, I know you....sorta." :-P She was finishing up a loverly sweater that will be in the Spring Interweave. You will definitely have to check it out.

I guess that kinda makes up for having to sell part of your stash.

Kinda, but not really.
