long time gone

It seems like its been a really long time since I last posted. I guess in the greater scheme of things, it hasn't been THAT long, but its been long enough. The few random people who do check in here are going to stop coming by if I don't post something...

I feel like there is lots of stuff to share, its been a busy week or so around here. Between school and work, and then this Saturday a good friend and I ran the Capital City Half Marathon here in Columbus. For being fairly undertrained, we performed surprisingly well, crossing the line in 2:01:19. There will be some pictures of that at some point, no doubt. That was followed by brunch at Northstar with an ever increasing number of people and then an afternoon of laying around feeling nauseous and beaten down. Thankfully I had Sunday off work and got to meet the gals for breakfast out again, this time at Tasi, which was fantastic.

Probably the main reason I'm finally getting around to posting today is that I have a test this afternoon. And one tomorrow afternoon. And nothing gets me motivated to do things like needing to study. In fact, I've already dusted, emptied the dishwasher, fixed something I broke in the process of dusting, and contemplated taking a load of crap to the goodwill drop off. What I have NOT done is study. Seriously, I'm over school. At this point, I don't care how to treat gerd, or peptic ulcer disease, or whatever the hell I'm supposed to be able to regurgitate later today. Its springtime!!

So to start things off, I have been tagged by one knittycrafter to do a meme (or whatever these blogland things are called). I saw her get tagged by devonshire and had a sneaky suspicion that I might be next. Here's the rules: Pick a book at least 123 pages long. Open that book to page 123. Find the fifth sentence and post the next three. Then tag five other people to do the same.

I was reading Enchantment, by Orson Scott Card, again but I finished it yesterday. I have not started anything else so I will use that one. Its a good read, I recommend it.
"Esther saw her son in the still water. His was the only face the water could have shown her, for what other living person was linked to her by blood and love? My Itzak, my Vanya, what is happening to you?"

Unfortunately I don't have five blogging friends. In fact I don't really have anyone that I know reads this blog regularly and also has a blog of their own aside from one or two people (one of whom tagged me). I know there are some people who visit fairly regularly, based on the site report but they are all quiet folks. So I'm going to tag Ros, and while I'm at it, I'll tag Ms. Maylily as well, just to force her to post because I'm in need of some reading material. Mwahaha...

I was going to post a knitting project and maybe some wedding updates, but to avoid making this post even longer, I will instead share a photo from the archives.


According to the blogger forum on ravelry, some folks disagree with the idea of posting photos that have nothing to do with the content of the post, but my thought is, who doesn't love a pretty picture? And besides, photography is (or was and hopefully will be again) one of my favorite "crafts" and one I like to share just as much as my knitting.

Happy Monday to all :)

I say any picture is the perfect one for the post. Who doesn't enjoy seeing a lovely photo. Best of luck on your test - on peptic ulcers and such. ;-D

Some people will disagree with just about anything, won't they!
