So, I've always been opinionated. I am not closed minded (or i try not to be) and i love to debate with intelligent people. Lately i've been encountering people that say things that sound to me like they want to fight, because they are saying such stupid things, they can't be serious. But when i attempt to find the basis of their opinion, i come up empty with them blowing me off with yet another stupid argument. Here's an example:

stupid person(SP): "I think I'm going to vote for Sarah Pahlin"
me: "why's that?"
SP: "because she's pretty"
me: "why would that make her a good VP? I have a lot of pretty friends, that aren't trying to be VP, and I wouldn't vote for them if they were - because they don't have the experience or qualifications to be in that position. Being a VP means more than just being attractive... and being attractive isn't usually one of them in the first place. Dick Cheney is not attractive, Al Gore is not attractive."
SP: "well, she's pretty, so i'm going to vote for her"
me: "but why? do you agree with her stance on important issues?"
SP: "i don't know her issues, but she's pretty"
me: "that doesn't make any sense. people like you shouldn't be allowed to vote"

(i said i wasn't close minded, i never said i wasn't snotty)

At my new job, i work with a lot of very crafty women. A couple of them quilt, one works with fleece and another one also makes cards/stationary. The group of us have been trying to get together for an official Stitch and Bitch session. Crafty Planet has these at their shop in Minneapolis, and i loved the concept. I'm really hoping this session brings out a new wave of creativity for me. I have a TON of projects that i would love to get started on, but with work being so tiring lately, i've had trouble finding the motivation for it. I have a Sublime Stitching embroidery pattern calling my name in particular that i can't wait to get started on. We were supposed to meet tomorrow but due to one of the girls moving, we're postponing until maybe the first week in October. [sigh] I can't believe it's already going to be October soon... Seems like time flies when you're not having fun too...

Hope all is well with you!

So for the last x amount of weeks i feel like i have been running around crazy, doing a little of this, a little of that.

My husband and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary, he sent these beautiful flowers (6 red roses and white orchids) to me at work:(pictures of Gino on the cube wall, and the creepying looking girl in the bottom corner is considered art work by the people who made my page a day calendar)

I have made a ton of baby blankets for showers that i've been attending and for people who attended ones i didn't. I made more jewelry roles for a bride:I'll be back with more pictures soon!
