Once Again, I Slogged

This is kinda how I feel about the never ending duster coat. I knit on it some in the mornings and I made some good progress even, but the more I knit on it, the more I feel like it is swarming around me and that there is no end in sight. I think it's just the miles of stockinette doing that to me. I'd rather have twenty cables and a lace panel to work on than 40 inches at 85 stitches per row. Blah.

The weekend was pretty good aside from the crappy weather. Saturday was a good day to stay inside and not do a darned thing. It rained all day long. DBF and I went and had lunch then walked at the mall for a little bit since it was so crappy outside. We also saw the movie Black Snake Moan. I now understand why it went to the dollar movie so fast. Just wait for it to come on cable...You do get to see a half-naked chained up Hilary Swank for 90% of the movie, so if you need an excuse to see it, that's the only reason I can give you.

Sunday we had a nice big lunch and then went jogging at the arboretum. I was surprised that DBF would go running with me, but he did good. I think he did better than I did too :oP He's thinking about running in the 5k in a few weeks with me since Rebecca had to skip out on that one. We did a lap then ate a blizzard on the way home, so we countered any good calorie burning we did while running. We went to see the movie called The Namesake and I thought it was pretty good. The previews looked much more funny than the movie turned out to be. Kal Penn (of Harold and Kumar Go To WhiteCastle fame...) was actually pretty good in the movie. It's always nice to see someone who can play a dumb character and then switch to a very serious role and pull it off.

I've got a major paper due this week, so I may not get as much knitting in, but we'll see. I may still be able to sneak some in. I'm hoping I can finish the dumb paper either tonight or tomorrow.

Knit on...

That was Christina Ricci in Black Snake Moan. I wouldn't want anyone to be expecting Hillary Swank nude and not get it. I know how you crazy knitters are! :OP
