The Cardinals won the World Series! (Been awhile since I updated, no?)

This is excellent, as it's nice to see a team that actually worked their ass off for it get the title. I love the Yankees dearly, but let's just say that change is healthy. Congrats, both Cards and fans!

I was up until 6am again and am sleeeeeeepy. In a really good mood (it seems to be more and more of a permanent condition lately, which is excellent), but sleepy. Yarr. Thank goodness for sick time, as I didn't get into work 'til 11, not that anyone's there to count and/or care anyhow except accounting people.

As of Saturday morning, I am now the proud owner of a piece of paper which, in about a month given appropriate love, care and bank account management, should sprout into a very shiny new car :D Brand new 2007 Toyota Yaris, which Tim refers to as a cheap plastic windup toy but which I cheerfully point out is not held together by twine... I think we're even ;)

Mom came out to visit for the day yesterday! It was really, really nice - we did some shopping, made 4 pints of pumpkin butter (the recipe said it would make 8-9...lies), then made steamed chicken and spaghetti, which is one of my favorite foods ever and which I've not had for probably the better part of a year. (...Holy runon sentence, Batman O_o) Also, I cleaned my bathroom. This was necessary.

We ran about half of ZG in the evening, wherein Carn and I mostly talked and occasionally paid attention to what was going on on our respective monitors (yay, he's back!! :D [See? Told you I really am happy! :P]). The ZG run crashed and burned around 1AMish, after which Sway came online and, well, that occupied the rest of the time 'til 6am. (Carn, stop laughing!) 'Twas a very good day :)

Bored tonight, I think... the fabric for my cloak isn't supposed to arrive 'til Thursday, which is irritating, but since I'm booked Wednesday already I guess it could be worse. Not sure whether I want to go by some craft store and see whether they have massive sheets of tracing paper onto which I could copy the pattern... it's a gorgeous 1979 pattern, completely uncut, and I'll feel awful cutting and pinning it if I can get tracing paper. Not to mention, it's thick as all hell, and pinning thick paper to thick wool without having anything buckle when I try to trace it isn't my idea of a good time. Got taffeta for the lining.... I'm still thinking I'll try to find satin instead, but we'll see when it arrives. I really am unreasonably excited about this project. *glee*

I have a Spooky Blue Raspberry lollipop :D
