Not much going on today, yet again. We're still not quite recovered. I totes finished that bloody IRKSOME capelet for my MIL last night:

It's got the same pink kitten buttons I used on my boobholder. It's (obviously) not very me, but I think she'll really dig it. I adore the finished product even if I did get SICK of the pattern repeat & the yarn. Today I started a hat for my BIL. It's gonna be a basic stripey earflap stocking cap with a puffball on top, but it's gonna have a detachable beard & mustache. It's some fluffy mystery acrylic.

Dunno what the beard/stache will be made of. I can't decide whether to go natural or unnatural colored. We'll have to see when the hat itself is done.

Meme time.

Many of them. But mostly Over Georgia. Hundreds of times, prolly.

50. How did you get your worst scar?
Hm. The most noticeable one is my chicken pox scar on my forehead. I had chicken pox on my 6th birthday. I got a She-Ra set, including wristlets, a mask, a sword, etc. I put the mask on & it scratched off one of the scabs & marked me forever. The one on my thumb might be a little worse, but it's hardly noticeable, given where it is. My first few weeks of college I was opening a package from my grama & the scissors slipped. Cut off pretty much the whole pad of my thumb. Couldn't have stitches, as it was a flat surface cut. I got home from the hospital and finished opening the package. There were Band-Aids inside. Thank you, psychic grama.

    "28. Would you strip for money?
