That's what rock n roll can do...

WARNING: No knitting has occurred since the last post. But, in crafting news, the oh-so-generous Betsy, gifted me with some beading supplies.

They came in these two boxes:

Click here for the staggering stats!

My week has been so crazy, I haven't even opened them all the way yet, but I can guarantee that my beading supplies probably qualify as SABLE (Stash Acquisitions Beyond Life Expectancy). Thank you, Betsy! You have made my crafting season!!! (And to everyone in my family: count on something beaded in your stockings.)

In other news...

let me answer your question
The sign I wore to work.

So I fell of Mark's motorcycle and broke my "elbow" in two places (the nurse seemed very perturbed when I said "the elbow isn't a bone, could you be more specific?") There's a *tiny* hairline fracture in my humerus (no, it isn't at all) and a regular fracture in my ulna (the outer forearm bone). They didn't even cast me, just a splint that the doc said I would need to start taking off within 3 days to encourage my joint to regain its flexibility. I am not sure if that arm will ever hyperextend again, but that's probably something I can live with.

The splint, and a brave face for the nurses
Getting the hook up at the doctor's, the meds are treating me right.

Last Wednesday, I went with some friends to the Melvins.

Mel, Jesse, Merilee

Sparks tongue!

It rocked, but that wasn't even close to the highlight of the week, 'cause on Thursday, I got to see my bf on stage. He is the newest bassist for the Moistboyz.

Allow me to brag:

Moistboyz crowd
The crowd was sizeable and high energy.

I am so happy for my guy. He looked like a natural and sounded like a pro. He's been busting his ass to make this happen, and if all goes well they will be opening for Helmet in Houston on Halloween. I can't wait!
