Why am I posting a pic of myself while not modeling any knitting? Because this is as close to bangs I have been since I was in sixth grade. Back then I was sporting the big, hairsprayed wave, (oh you know you were too!) and I accept partial blame to that hole in the ozone layer (sorry Australia!). I must admit my style has improved since then, no hairspray, no banana clips, no leggings, and no scrunchies. At least I never wore those dreaded z.cavariccis, do I get any points for that? I’ll have to live with my fake bangs for a while before I decide if I want to go shorter or “real” next time. I really like them as is, what a difference bringing pics from the internet does. Usually I just mumble something and make my stylist look through books with me or make up something as she goes (I’m very trusting).
Is this why I’m really posting? nah, I have some exciting news, well exciting to me at least. Can’t you tell I’m excited in this pic? (yep, I’m lame, did it really take you this long to realize this?) Remember when I asked for vacation advice? Well, the bf is being sent away for work for a couple of weeks (sniff!sniff!) and we decided, like the geniuses that we are, to tack on our vacation at the end of his trip. The poor boy has to be in China for two weeks by himself and I get to meet him in Tokyo for a week! I was going to go to China (near Shanghai) as well, but his boss didn’t think that was such a great idea (who does he think he is anyway?). I’m going to be all by my lonesome till I fly to Japan by myself. : ( I guess the boy is going to have to get over his whole not-wanting-to-fly thing now isn’t he? hah!
I’ll mostly be bringing back some craft/knitting books I’ve been drooling over but have never seen in person. Is there any yarny goodness I should also be in the lookout for? I have a small list of yarn stores already (we thought we were going to go earlier in the summer) so what “normal” touristy things should we do? The boy wants to see Mt. Fuji and I just want to walk around and look in all the cool stores. We know we are going to eat a lot and go to the arcades, but now I have to start researching our daily activities. Any suggestions are appreciated.
umm, I guess I should make this post somewhat knitting related. The new Knitty is up (as if you didn’t know) and it’s quite good! I think it’s their most consistent one to date. I’m slowly plugging away on my River Stole and I started another camisole as well. I’ll try to post pics of it on another post.
