It's the 25th!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, it's been a long time since I have been so very excited for a new movie. The X-files: I want to believe is out and I have resisted skipping work and going to see it. I have read a couple of plot-less reviews and there seems to be many that don't like it because, they say, it seems like an extended episode with the reunion of Mulder and Scully. Gosh, I'm getting giggggggly just thinking about going to the movie. ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^

Work is going amazing. The site has been revamped, again, and there are different errors than before! The sucky thing is they want the testing done by Monday. There goes my weekend, but I am getting paid for it so oh well.

YAY! I just watched a trailer on TV and it looks like...... YAY!

The Nightmare Before Christmas

I know we have yet to hit August, but I can't stop thinking about....... Halloween! It's about time to start thinking about costumes and how easy/difficult they will be to put together. I have a bad habit of picking costumes that not many understand who I am supposed to be. Last year I tried a vampire and ended up looking more goth than anything.

My top 3 so far.....

Miranda Priestly from the Devil wears Prada

Mrs. Lovett from Sweeny Todd

Or my Pirate.... Now that I have the oh-so-amazing tricorne pattern. ^_^

I also got some work, finally. I think I will be working all weekend to get everything done. There is also a job for a technical writer at a company in White Rock. I have to update my resume and send it off with a cover letter. Much better than a job downtown and I can get out of the house.

So, the only time that I am planning to have to myself this weekend is going to the X-Files movie. I think I may have found someone excited enough to see it opening night. I just found out that my brother's girlfriend is a Phile as well. After waiting so very long, it's here in a couple of days. I have watched a few clips online and I am so very excited.

Oh! I also finished Sophie's octo. I just have to get her mailing address to send it to her. I am almost done the lime octo. I just have to finish the tentacles, then stitch it all up. I'm going to take both to knit night, probably the knitopia one, to see what the ladies think of them. The lime one could be easily shipped and stuffed when it arrives, while the one for Sophie just may cause troubles with the size and weight of the item.

Needle Felting

I picked up a needle felting kit and some fiber. It's a little tricky to get the fibers to get what you want them to do. I wanted to make a duck, the colours I have would be perfect for a rubber ducky felted creature, but it didn't turn out like that. Now the creation looks like a little yellow birdie. I still don't know if I like it and I have no idea if the thing is finished. I'll let the ladies at knit night have a look and tell me if it needs... more....

I also sent out Fetching to my Mom. I hope she will like them. I'm going to start Spirogya later tonight. I hope they will turn out as well as Fetching did.

After spending way to much time on Youtube watching "So you think you can dance" I had the brilliant thought to look up my old dance teachers. One was very easy to find. The studio is still in operation, even though she is using the same old tired songs. It even looks like the same set of ladies that were in the Adult group when I left the studio 15 years ago.

The other teacher I looked up is, thankfully, still teaching.. I think..... There isn't much information about what happened to the Factory and when I looked at the schedule her initials don't show. I am so very tempted to phone the company she is working for and asking what she is doing now. That just might be to invasive.

Now I'm wondering what happened to classmates.... did they make it as dancers.... did they try..... only google will tell.
