Well, it’s been a mildly eventful weekend for me. After some really good times (a music performance on Thurs, watching The Matrix on DVD with friends Friday night, hanging out and being lazy on Sat) – I had a couple of little adventures. Saturday, while walking my dog, I was mere inches from a manhole that spewed fire and smoke and made a very loud noise, threatening to explode. I swooped up my dog and ran, but I swear I was shaking for a good hour after that. If it had exploded just then, I would not be typing this.

Then this morning, walking to work, I found myself in the middle of a swarm of screeching cop cars, turning corners like wildfire, driving down alleyways, coming from all directions. I swear I almost looked for the movie cameras. I found out a few hours later that there was a shootout a mere short block from where I was walking. Oh Joy. How many other times this week can I defy death or serious injury?

In knitting news, I’ve done 6 of the 24 or possibly 48 squares I need for this blanket. At this rate, my grandniece will be walking and talking by the time it’s finished. I need to buckle down and get cracking on this. Good thing is, with school over, I can devote evenings this week to some knitting.

But now I look forward to a pretty late night at work today. With our DSL down all morning and half the afternoon, most of our ads and copy didn’t come in yet. Sigh.
