Cosy


I need to look at a picture of MF to make me feel better. I ordered some spinning fiber from a girl on Ravelry who was destashing. It was shipped on Dec 20 and I thought that it would only take 3 business days to get to me (priority shipping) and I would be able to spin some during my holiday. Well the package was finally delivered today:

To Hartford, Connecticut. I don't know if USPS screwed up or if the girl sending it has got some squirrelly handwriting but this is f'ed-up. I called USPS customer service and they said someone would get back to me w/in 2 business days. WTF. WTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTF.

In better news, Dollar got me a nice gift certificate for Christmas and I ordered a Zojirushi Home Bakery Mini. It's a good size for the two of us, making 1 lb loaves. But I saw Dollar literally cut a third of the loaf off, butter the end piece and insist that it's still "one slice" of bread (even thought it was 2.5 inches thick). I've made quick bread, regular firm bread and dough for pizza. I am in love with it- just put in all the ingredients in order, leave it and the machine does all the work. And it looks cute on the counter next to my Sanyo rice cooker.

It was a good holiday break. I hung out with Murderface all day (I think he sleeps too much), knit, spun some yarn, baked a bit, cleaned, played some games, packed a few boxes of books, worked on a puzzle. My sister cut a new puzzle for me (best Christmas present ever!) and it's hard. Really hard. I've been working on it for a week and it's only about 50% put together. It is fun, though, I do love putting together these puzzles.

Looks like your fiber had a more eventful vacation than you did!
(My verification word is 'bednestr' - which sounds like Murderface to me...)
