Yes, I’m stuck. Why do you ask?

17 Dec

This morning, I dug my car out – I didn’t park in my favorite spot & I wish I had. To me, the corner spots are the worst to get your car out of after a snowstorm. Don’t know why, it’s just how I feel. As I was shoveling out my back tire – sitting on a snowbank – one of my neighbors comes out, on his way to work. This is the same guy who always has at least 7-9 empty wine bottles in his recycling bin every week. I sincerely hope he just works at or owns a liquor store but if that’s the case, how does he make any money?
I present the following conversation:
Neighbor/possible lush: Are you stuck?
Me: Um, yes, but I think it’s just my back tires.
N/pl: Oh.
He continues walking to his car and proceeds to start clearing out his own car.
Maybe I’m weird, but I thought he might offer to help me. I’m not bitter about it but just think it was weird to ask if you weren’t going to offer to help. Right?
On the other hand, I don’t have to feel obligated to help him with anything now, do I?

it’s Sunday here at Condo Manor, and i’m knitting. i’m finally working on my Inside-Out socks, made of BMFA’s Socks that Rock, colorway Monsoon. It’s a Rockin’ Sock Club offering – the first skein, from February. i started it way back when it arrived, but ran into some trouble(it was too big), so i quit. Now, it’s the only skein of yarn already wound into a cake, and i need something to knit, so it’s back on the needles. i love it. This time, i’m using size 0 needles for all of the foot and i think that’ll make the difference.

right now i’m on vacation until August 27th and i couldn’t be happier. j is going to work monday but then she’s off the rest of the week. we both need time away…i can’t wait to just lay around. maybe do a little shopping, and get ready for the semester to begin.

we just got the internets here at home, so i’ll be able to check in more often – i hated blogging from work. i felt guilty. talk soon!
