Knitted a Jayne hat (Jayne from the series Firefly) and it turned out rather well. I'm quite proud of it. Pics coming soon.

The End of Raven

By Edgar Allen Poe's Cat

On a night quite unenchanting, when the rain was downward slanting,
I awakened to the ranting of the man I catch mice for.
Tipsy and a bit unshaven, in a tone I found quite craven,
Poe was talking to a Raven perched above the chamber door.
"Raven's very tasty," thought I, as I tiptoed o'er the floor,
"There is nothing I like more."
Soft upon the rug I treaded, calm and careful as I headed
Towards his roost atop that dreaded bust of Pallas I deplore.
While the bard and birdie chattered, I made sure that nothing clattered,
Creaked, or snapped, or fell, or shattered, as I crossed the corridor;
For his house is crammed with trinkets, curios and weird decor -
Bric-a-brac and junk galore.
Still the Raven never fluttered, standing stock-still as he uttered,
In a voice that shrieked and sputtered, his two cents worth -
"Nevermore."
While this dirge the birdbrain kept up, oh, so silently I crept up,
Then I crouched and quickly leapt up, pouncing on the feather bore.
Soon he was a heap of plumage, and a little blood and gore -
Only this and not much more.
Then my pickled poet cried out, "Pussycat, it's time I dried out!"
Never sat I in my hideout talking to a bird before;
How I've wallowed in self-pity, while my gallant, valiant kitty.
Put an end to that damned ditty - then I heard him start to snore.
Back atop the door I clambered, eyed that statue I abhor,
Jumped - and smashed it on the floor.

I didn't write this ^ - [link]

 Quirks of a Writer

it's got to be mechanical pencil
hair pulled back
music - really loud or really soft - gotta drown out the roar of silence
food - gotta have snacks
water? i like soda better...or applejuice
warm - comfortable - but i don't like socks or shoes, they confine
composition notebook or journal - spirals get in the way
or looseleaf, gives the "scattered thoughts" impression
outside - i like nature
inside - gotta have people, i'm a people-watcher - people are so weird, at least the sane ones are
pencils have to be everywhere - never know when you'll need a new one 
gotta be really late or really early, not daytime - twilight and dawn are best - i'm nocturnal

Oh poor child, why do you weep? The sun is rising, look how the sky glows.
I weep for I am a child of the night and with every passing second the rays of the sun grow closer. I burn.

My alarm clock lost its voice. I missed my Italian class this morning. Sono smarrirsi e non soddisfatto.
My peanut tossing, money gathering lemur twisted his ankle. I now have a free afternoon tomorrow where I will not be playing the hammer dulcimer and handing out peanuts on the streetcorners of Cardboard Hills. 
Tonight I must remember to practice my run-on sentences. I end them far too early most of the time.
