Been a while...



I haven't been on in a while, sorry. I was... no excuses.
Yesterday Renee, Miranda and I went downtown to Romni's and got yarn. Miranda got beads at Golden Beads since she's not a knitter though. Renee got red yarn to make her Link gauntlets, her second project. And that's Link as in Zelda. She had to rip them back again today, but they're going pretty well. I got some bright green yarn to make the Punk Rock Backpack from Stitch 'n Bitch. I've already made the front pieces and have the back about 4 inches in. Not to bad since I only started yesterday.
Last night was Pi night here. Because the number for pi is 3.14159, on the third month, 14th day at 1:59 am you must eat pie and watch Daron Ayronofski's Pi. It was awesome, but we didn't get to sleep until about 4 in the morning. Yummy pie!
I also went for dinner with my dad today. We went to the East Side Mario's on Steeles and Dufferin. There is really not much to choose from in terms of nearby off campus food around here. And I really don't want to go exploring, the repercussions of getting lost up here are much greater than downtown. Blast.
To stop this from being another pictureless post, here's some shots from Trevor's band photo shoot. It was corset/Moulin Rouge night at the pub (the Absinthe), so all us girls were dressed up. I was the green fairy. We were all supposed to be adoring fans of the band. The second one is Trevor and I goofing off. It's also a better shot of the costume, which I made all of. The corset is made of duct tape that I covered in green raw silk, and then sewed detail into. The skirt is strips of lace sewed to other strips of lace, and then green tulle saftey-pinned to the top. I made the skirt ages ago, so that's why the tulle isnt' permenantally sewed in. I pinned my hair up in pin curls and slept in them, so my hair turned out uber curly, which was a lot of fun. It wasn't very hard, so I may do it more often, just for the amusement factor.
