Thanks for the tip about the pins, Tiki. Of course, it makes perfect sense. Now. I was right about your clue about the foot pressure--my machine has none. I did use pins on another long (50") straight seam last night. Dodged every one. In fact I didn't even remember to take them out until I hit one with the iron! Damn, this jacket is looking good. I'll clean up the album this morning.

As for your scrubbed canoe trip... won't your kids wake your housemate at the appropriate time? Just kidding. Too bad about the canoing though...

I ended up going downstairs and telling my housemate that I was leaving, and she got up. I brought my poor sick friend a bunch of get-well stuff, and watched him puke a few times, then I went out to the canoe launch and just goofed around and looked at turtles and took pictures, and then I got a call from another friend and went and hung out, and took my smallest daughter to a BBQ, so I had a pretty good day after all.

Plus, I have a line on a cute used kayak for cheap!

I would love to get a used canoe. (Kayaks are cool too, but I'm more comfortable when I can bend my knees -- and that means a bench seat.)

Too cool!

It looks like the kayak is about to be mine! I call at 12:30 to make sure it's still available. It's a 3-year-old Liquidlogic Stingray, they retail for $700 and she's asking $200. Wish me luck!

Also, literally the day that I decide that I'm pretty happy with the status quo and I like my little platonic boyfriend and I like the potentially non-platonic guy I'm dating and MIGHT even someday consider the girlfriend word, I get a text from the ex-who-I'm-not-over... he wants to hang out this evening. I should say no, but hope springs eternal... at the very least, maybe I can give him his overdue birthday present and get my laptop back.

Mildly irritating yesterday.

Went to 3 stores (CVS, Safeway, and CVS) looking for Peeps. All were sold out. Not gonna drive all around town looking for a store that still has them. Don't care enough. But seriously, it's still 6 days until Easter and the Peeps are already gone? wtf?

On my current program, someone went and bought PAL cameras, instead of NTSC. wtf??

Naw, these are special order from a U.S. tech company. Not a consumer product.

The Target in my area had bucketloads of them on sale. Try there?

I can't process this statement. It's in the same class as "Today: Earth rotates" or "Today: Gravity at work."

I told the ex-I'm-not-over that I don't want to see him anymore, and that I was wrong about being able to be friends.
