Im still here

Have you missed me? heee... Well I still have no internet at home so that is the reason for not posting as often. sign.... I sure do miss it.

I quit my job last week after a horrible customer talked to me like a dog and my manager said to just move on and not let it affect me and that the customer didn't know me on a personal level. When I asked very politly for the customer not to talk to me in such a manor I was told I could not ever let the customer know that they had upset me or they were doing anything wrong!!!!!!!! I will not work such assholes that won't stand behind their employees.. so I just walked out in the middle of my shift. I do have a new job and I start on monday!!.. Its at Merrits Bakery and will be loads of fun.. no more stressful jobs for me, I am putting myself and my family first for once in my life..
And to my Panera knit group.. I am so sorry for missing Tuesday night! I was really sick with a stomach bug and could in no way make it.. I hate when I miss hanging out with the group and talking all night.. Hope you all had a great time..
Not alot going on in the knitting front. I am still working on the MS3 on Clue 3 ,... going slow but I am having alot of fun with it.. I am still working on the Hendra sock from Cookie A on , and working on a plain sock in Trexxing #100.. I will try and post from my cellphone and see if it works, so if you read some little comments or blurbs, that would be me playing around.. I miss all my internet friends and hope to be online very, very soon... miss you all...

Badge of Shame

Hello Kitty as a deterent; from the news

BANGKOK, Thailand - Thai police officers who break rules will be forced to wear hot pink armbands featuring "Hello Kitty," the Japanese icon of cute, as a mark of shame, a senior officer said Monday. ADVERTISEMENTPolice officers caught littering, parking in a prohibited area, or arriving late — among other misdemeanors — will be forced to stay in the division office and wear the armband all day, said Police Col. Pongpat Chayaphan. The officers won't wear the armband in public.The striking armband features Hello Kitty sitting atop two hearts."Simple warnings no longer work. This new twist is expected to make them feel guilt and shame and prevent them from repeating the offense, no matter how minor," said Pongpat, acting chief of the Crime Suppression Division in Bangkok."(Hello) Kitty is a cute icon for young girls. It's not something macho police officers want covering their biceps," Pongpat said.He said police caught breaking the law will be subject the same fines and penalties as any other members of the public."We want to make sure that we do not condone small offenses," Pongpat said, adding that the CSD believed that getting tough on petty misdemeanors would lead to fewer cases of more serious offenses including abuse of power and mistreatment of the public by police officers.Hello Kitty, invented by Sanrio Co. in 1974, has been popular for years with children and young women. The celebrity cat adorns everything from diamond-studded jewelry, Fender guitars and digital cameras to lunch boxes, T-shirts and stationery.Email Story IM Story Printable View RECOMMEND THIS STORYRecommend It: Average (1122 votes)» Recommended StoriesFull Coverage: ThailandOff the WiresHello Kitty to punish bad-boy Thai police AFP, Mon Aug 6, 2:13 AM ET Thailand to launch environment satellite in November AFP, Mon Aug 6, 1:59 AM ET Feature ArticlesThe day the Thai economy crashed at BBC, Jul 02 n Thailand, Keeping the Fes

Harry potter fan night

I just learned that I can send pics and posts from my This picture was taken at the Harry Potter wait in line all night to get a book :).. The girls had a great time spending the day together and dressing up , and I have to admit I had a great time too :).. the post is a little late, but I am still learning here..

The Hedera sock has ended

I ripped out the hendra sock from Cookie A that I was working on forever!!.. It just was not coming out right because I am a dumb butt and can't read the directions. So I have decided I will buy a new ball of the Panda cotton and start over. The reason being I have to buy more yarn is because this yarn splits really easy and I don't think i will look very good since I have frogged this sock like 3 or 4 times if not
My Mystery Stole is coming along. I am on Clue 2 half way done and hope by the end of the week to be working on clue 3 at least. Clue 5 can out this Friday and I am trying to stay off the yahoo board so that I don't see anything about what it might But I am sure as big as the internet is I will trip on top of it one day.
My internet is acting crazy and kicking me off every 3 minutes or so.. So i may not be around at all since it will not even let me get on yahoo without disconnecting the DSL connection.. I am thinking I have a bug in my system and I will have to re-formate my hard drive.. I may be posting to my blog via my cellphone.. lord that will take forever.. I guess I better figure out how to do it I have no new pics to put up since I am being a lazy butt and not taking pics.. I will post as soo as I can and when my computer will let me... :) till next time..
