i've learned to play a song from the camp songbook. exciting, no? i only need those three chords to play several songs, but 'uyaimose' is the only one that i have successfully tackled as of now. my index finger has a funny tingling sensation where it hits the strings - well on it's was to a callus, i'd say. :)

i should take a picture of the gitter and post it sometime.
i should also post pictures from the various recent sca events and other stuff i've been up to lately.
we'll see if the internets will hold out for my wee baby laptop, which seems to be having problems with wireless these days (i'm on campus and didn't bring the usb cords for my camera, so i can't plug into this computer as there is no sd card reader.)

anywho, tomorrow is the big trip. some friends and i will be going to the brown sheep yarn factory, to tour it and to buy bulk discount yarns from the outlet store. hooray yarn! someone asked this week why we would want to do that, and my friend and i replied simultaneously, 'we like yarn' with the exact same intonation and probably expression on our faces. it was good times.

news from the motherland

i have found this wonderful blog, full of rants pretaining to my home state. much of what the author says is not only entertaining, but true. one of my favorite quotes from the page is:

"Welcome to the SD Legislative Asylum...only days to go."

if you're keeping up with what's going on in the SD legislature, that is quite apropriate.

Congratulations! You are Katherine Parr.
Katherine Parr spent nearly her whole life married to crotchety old men: Henry was the THIRD old fart she was forced to marry. Is it any wonder she turned to books and religion to occupy her time?
Katherine wasn't just smart, she was a tiny bit uppity, too: she almost got herself thrown in jail for arguing with His Royal Fatness about some theological issues. After Henry croaked, Katherine dropped the prim and proper act and married Thomas Seymour, a handsome, dashing pirate kind of guy who was also as dumb as a post.
Which goes to show you that even bookworms know how to get it on.

Which of Henry VIII's wives are you?
this quiz was made by Lori Fury
not sure that i want to spend much of my life being married to a crochety old man, or even a stupid but dashing pirate-type, but whatever...
