37 hours. Why am I still awake? I haven't a clue. It could be the fact that I had pixi stix earlier right when I was about to fall over. Mmmmmmsugar.

Gonna go get some more work done. There are quite a few things I need to work on. But tonight I'll be sure to watch a little more TV than, say, sketchbook or needles. Brain needs to relax, I'm sure.

I missed your package today, Yarn Fairy! T-T It's supposed to be here again tomorrow between 10 and 2... a very broad time range. Which means most likely 11am. Going to try to stay up the entire time so I don't miss it again... if I pass out now I'll definitely miss it again.

If there is someone on your Friends List who makes your world a better place just because that person exists and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

I am, indeed, quite fortunate to know all of you in some form or fashion.

1. Open up your media player or winamp or ipod or whatever, set it to shuffle.
2. Skip through the first 25 20 songs and list them.
3. Add "in my pants" to the end of each song title.
4. Bold your favorites.

The List o' Twenty )

And one more for good luck:

21. Crazy Little Thing Called Love in my Pants

stellie: (hop for your life!)
Let's see if I can explain the motions to this little song:

To the tune of TURKEY IN THE STRAW (Remember Steamboat Willie?)

Haaaaaaave yooooooou...
Ever gone a'fishin' on a bright n' sunny day

(After "ever" you clasp your hands together like you're holding a fishing rod and throw it over your shoulder like you're about to cast.) (After "a'fishin'" you cast out.) (On "bright" you have your arms stretched directly above you with your hands first formed into fists and then extend your fingers, like sunbursts.) (Same action on "sunny" only at ten and two.) (Same action on "day" only at nine and three.)

When all the little fishies were a'swimmin' in the bay?

(The whole line has you with your hands pressed flat together, thumb-bits upwards, shimmying your pressed hands back and forth in a fishy motion.)

With your hands in your pockets and your pockets in your pants

(Really big, dramatic movements with arms, now!) (On "hands" you extend your right arm out and swing it around to tap your right back pant's pocket on the first "pockets".) (On the second "pockets" repeat motion with left arm to left pants pocket on "pants".)

And all the little fishies do the hoochie-coochie dance!

(Tuck arms close to you and wiggle back and forth!) (...yes, no more touching of your pants pockets. Not yet.)

Tra-la-la-la-la, tra-la-la-la! Tra-la-la-la-la, tra-la-la-la!

(Clap on the beats!)

With your hands in your pockets and your pockets in your pants
And all the little fishies do the hoochie-coochie dance!

(You know what to do ;D )

This is extremely cute when you've got a lot of younger kids doing it -- they're generally over-excited and get silly with some of the motions. Same with Grey Squirrel and The Banana Song. Sometimes with The Skunk Song, too, but it's basically a story telling song with a silly ending.

Also? It's great exercise! (All of them are, really... Banana song most of all.) If anyone wants me to go over the other songs I know, I will :P
stellie: (end of the world DW)
So I had this really bright idea last night that I would sit and wait in the hall for the package. I took my sketchbook down with me and sat for about an hour before becoming rather bored with it all. Came back upstairs, wrote a note with my telephone number and, if they couldn't call, to step closer to the doors so I could see they were here (camera-through-television, yay!)....

I'm always moving around and I'm always bored so I go and check every fifteen to thirty minutes. I keep a watch on the TV, too (it only takes a minute to pop down and check, really). Phone is right here set for the loudest ring possible.

No call.

Only students on the television.

I just went downstairs to check up on things and BOOM, my note was propped open and an InfoNotice plastered underneath stating that they'll make another attempt tomorrow.

...why can't people do a simple little act like walking five steps towards the second set of doors? *headdesk*
stellie: (lol et cetera)

Really crappy clippet! I've done my little gauge swatch. Those stitches are hella tiny but they seem to work up pretty fast (and I delight in making small things, anyway) so this sweater thing shouldn't be too bad. Sixteen days. Starting tomorrow at 2pm.

Let the insanity begin.
