Three Things

Today we'll focus on some of my better news of late:

1) It's hubby Travis' birthday! Well, March 3rd - which is what day it will be by the time feeds update, probably....I'm close enough!

2) I finished another something:

Herringbone Cowl

Pardon my distraction - the president is speaking.

This is the Herringbone Cowl by Lauren Osborne, knit in Zen String in the "Gwendolyn" colorway, size US 4 needles. Took for freaking ever to knit because due to the stitch pattern, I was getting about 16 ROWS TO THE INCH. Blurgh. Still, I love the way it turned out.

Ew, flash photos. But stitch definition is good too, so we suffer...

3) We auditioned for a show, and it looks like we'll both be in the cast, possibly playing multiple roles. I don't particularly care too terribly much what I'm cast as because a) it's a fun silly show likely to be full of people I enjoy being around, who are talented and entertaining, and I love the director oodles and lots, and b) it's not totally guaranteed but it looks like OH MY GOD FREAKING GEORGE PEREZ IS GOING TO BE IN THE SHOW TOO. YES. THAT GEORGE PEREZ. I'm in geek heaven. (After being around him a couple of times I can add that he is, incidentally, also on the short list of nicest guys on the whole planet.)

George Perez!!!!
