Tempting, Basketball, Allergies, Birthdays, Numbers

Well, I got the black knitpicks Andean Silk in the mail yesterday, so, work has resumed on Tempting from knitty.com. I think it'll look OK. We shall see.

I watched basketball last night and actually rooted for the Florida Gators. That's waaaaay out of the ordinary for me, but it was the Championship game and I'd rather see a Florida college win than a California one. Plus, as someone from my boyfriend's work put it, "I want the Gators to win tonight because then it will be so much more glorious when the Seminoles beat them next year." Too true. Beating the National Champions will be glorious.

I'm still sick. I figure it's not actual sickness, but allergies, because it ain't going away and I'm not hacking up anything of a strange color. *shrug* That's what I get for living in paradise.

Today is my loverly little niece's sixth birthday! I love that she was born in 2000, because it makes it so easy to remember how old she is. I wish everyone could have been born in 2000, but that would be a lot of people, so maybe not. In 2004, her birthday was 4/4/04.

Tonight, once it becomes tomorrow, actually, at 1:02 and 3 seconds, it will be 01:02:03 04/05/06 and that's cool. Numbers are fun. If you're asleep, don't worry; it'll happen again in the afternoon.

it's amazing that she's six.

she was born in the early morning on the 4th of april, i remember the phone ringing oh so early for the oh so happy newsies!

you're the only person with allergies that rival mine, i believe. except i've got all the foods that i can't eat. so i still win! oh, wait, this is a crappy victory.

ugh. I am so glad I don't have food allergies. That shit has got to be really annoying.

yes. especially the sesame and hazelnut ones. goodbye ready-made sushi (although that's sorta a good thing) and nutella.
