Damn, I could use a drink right now. And, no, I don't want to talk about it. It's all my own stupid fault, and I shouldn't be this stressed over something so... and I'm used to being rejected anyway.

I'm also officially experiencing what veteran knit-bloggers call burn-out. I'm just not interested in anything anymore. Bleh. Someone knock me upside my head, please.

Go to wool every Sunday.
Lose ten alpacas by March.
Cut down to ten midnight shearings a day.
Go spinning three times a week.
Ask my boss for a yarn.
Volunteer to spend time with vpenguins.
