String and random filler

I have been busily working (Self-generating SQL code! Use 7 lines of code to write 1200 all by itself, and let it run for an hour or so. Oh the excitement! See why I don’t talk about work much here???), and also doing things with string.

Things like coloring it

silk bobbins

and winding from big cones into little balls (only 9 more pounds to go).

cotton balls

Also not very thrilling. So instead of boring you further with programming and winding, I will bore you with cat stories.

My shower has a glass door. This morning, as soon as I turned off the water, Morgan pulled the door open so he could enter the wet and dripping stall and twine around my wet and dripping ankles. Ew. I spent the next few minutes trying to remove long black fluff from my shins, while Morgan sat in the shower, tail draped in a puddle of water, with that self-satisfied expression that only a contented cat can manage. Almost made me wish I had a showercam. Almost.

    hee hee, silly Morgan!

    Nine pounds? Whoah. That’s a lot of string! Which, of course, is an inherently good thing.

    I may play with string again this evening. I realized on Sunday that I had messed up once again with my epi–“It’s doubleweave. That’s 20 epi PER LAYER, Laura. Start over.”
