UPDATE: Which Plate? And the winner is…


Pixie Knits…

Seems that I will be going with the PXE KNTS license plate… I’m very excited.  Although only 5 people voted in my little poll, it was fun to see that I was on the right track. Thank you to those that did vote…

Which Plate? Help me choose my personal license plate…


In case you didn’t know, I’m like really really into knitting now.  Almost to the point where it is a compulsion. Keeping that in mind, and since I’ve also been a pixie for most of my adult life (pixie has been a part of my user name, or computer handle for you old school folks) I have decided to possibly blend the two together.  Keeping this in mind, here are the two license plates that I’ve decided to pick from.  I would like some feedback, so let me know which one you like best!

Plate A: Pixie Knits

Plate B: Knit 1, Yarn Over, Slip Slip Knit

Mother F*n iTunes… F* you!


OMG, I’m so upset! I can’t get iTunes to work… the Genius keeps locking it up… it keeps getting to the same spot and it just stops working.  And trying to find and help on Apples site is like trying to find Waldo… it just ain’t happening.  Does anyone know a way to turn the Genius off before iTunes even starts?  I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes, and restarting my computer.  I’m so frustrated… especially after all the problems I’ve been having with getting my music all in one spot.

Woot!!! My new laptop is here…


After a long deliberation, I finally ordered a new laptop. I had originally thought I was going to go with a Sony Z-Series, but I changed my mind cause I wanted a little bigger screen. So I ordered the Dell Studio XPS 16. I just took it out of the box, and I couldn’t be happier so far. Will post some pictures in a little while.

The coolest thing ever… well, not really


I just wanted to share with you all tonight that I found something neat at Subway.  They don’t advertise these little gems, but they have these things called minis…

I like going to Subway, it seems to be one of the only take out places that I can do that fits within my dietary restrictions.  The problem is that I’m always hungry after I eat a 6 in. sub, but I feel like a fat pig when I have a foot long.  These mini things are little 4 inch sandwiches.  The cool thing is if you get you get 2 its more than the 6 in., but smaller than the 12 in.  I was even able to get chips (the baked kind).  I just wanted to spread the word….

I know I’ve lost some weight, but come on


So I was called into the office for an early morning meeting. While the hour drive up wasn’t too bad, it still was slow going. I did what I needed to, and it was time for me to leave so I could make my doctor’s appointment. I get out to the parking garage, and apparently the person that parked next to ne decided that I didn’t really need to leave, he parked so close to me I couldn’t even get in through the driver’s side. So I had to crawl across my front seat. Oh, and cause I was there for a meeting I was in one of my suits. I thought I should thank this person, so I left this note on the driver’s side window.

And this is supposed to make me feel better?


Yeah, so the Lean Cuisine box said to put the food on a real plate so I wouldn’t feel so bad about eating so little food. Somehow I think it just makes me feel worse.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a garden


Jason is working hard out in the 90 degree heat hooking up his family with fresh fruits and vegetables.  I’m glad I got him a giant diet cherry lime aid from sonic.

CT scans for all


I’m sitting out in front of Jason’s school this morning while he takes his art history test. Later today I have my CAT scan. I had my MRI last Saturday. I love hanging out at the imaging office… not. After that I think we are going to work in the yard. I think we will actually get fruit trees this year. I told Jason that if he gets the wholes dug, I would go and buy the trees. I even had the Miss Utility folks come out and mark all our lines. How is that for motivation? I’ll let you all know how things are going later today. I may even have some video to share. Good times!

Once upon a time…



Your kids are small and cute. What a hansom boy.
