When you hear someone say they live outside the ring
What’s your favorite term of venery? We enjoy of a shrewdness of apes, though a kindle of kittens is always nice to have around the house.
I never get tired of these. A drift of hogs! An exaltation of larks!
A Business of Ferrets will always be one of my favorite terms for anything in the world.

All yarn is hand-dyed by myself on a sturdy 75% wool, 25% nylon sock-weight base. The yarn is superwash, but minimal bleeding is possible due to the hand-dyed nature of the yarn, so caution is urged when washing. All dyes are food-safe ;-)

I wish Adam Scott in a Batman Suit was my roommate.
Needing to think (whine) out loud…
We’re going to make a positive-negative-positive sandwich here, which may have several layers:
+starting to feel better after plague-like cold thing!
-have not practiced viola in a very long time, partial thanks to plague-like cold thing.
+practiced today and it was not terrible!
-remembered while practicing that I should probably give a recital this year, so I have to learn all the things, find a pianist, pay pianist, book a hall, invite people, feed them afterward, and BLERRRRRG.
+how freaking cool is the Rebecca Clarke viola sonata?!
-by the time I get back from Europe, I will be super broke, AND in enormous debt! Yaaaaaaay.
+I’m in freaking Europe. No more complaining.
Another fun thing is that I get to figure out how to do my taxes from halfway across the world. Can’t wait.
Actual real fun things, are that I get to play some shows in Berlin this month with the fantastic Amy Schmidt, AND I’m going to see the Smooth Criminal cello guys this week, fo’ free! Pretty excited.
