Christine's flight home takes off in minutes. Meanwhile, those with an academic and postmodern bent may be interested in reading her talk: http://ideaspeak.us/you-are-here/ .

I spent yesterday threading beads on a double strand of monofilament. There's a clever technique where one does that, and then one can take a strand of yarn (or beading thread or what have you) through the loop of the monofilament and slide the beads off on to the yarn. I've been thinking about selling some of the beads and thought this would be helpful, but I feel an odd despair looking at the box of beads. So many ideas and hopes and projects....

[Rummaging at Firemountain Beads because i am irrepressible and have an idea.]

Hrmph. I am going to see if i can fix one of Christine's broken necklaces in the box. I don't need to buy a focal bead. I can just fix it with what is there.

I flea'd the cats. Edward is glaring at me.

I will NOT will NOT bid on the gravy boat that is currently at $25 free shipping in our wedding china pattern that goes for $170 at Replacements. I will NOT. No more dishes expansion until we move, whenever that is.

Christine lands in two hours.

I probably can't get everything i planned to do over the past few days done in the next hours.
