Geez it's grey outside. A bit of a downer after the gorgeous sun we had yesterday afternoon. Actually, yesterday's weather was a little schizophrenic - we started out with a bit of sun, around 9:30 it started pouring but stopped fairly quickly, and then eventually it cleared up to almost totally clear skies.

I'm wearing BPAL's Carnal today, but you'd almost never know it... apparently my skin eats it. There's one to add to the "pretty but don't order a bottle" pile. Ever since I started my new job, I've actually been remembering to put on jewelry and perfume. Next thing you know, I'm going to end up wearing makeup. Actually, after reading [livejournal.com profile] moukin's posts lately, I'm getting tempted to order some samples from Everyday Minerals.

I slept like a baby after all my exercise yesterday. In fact, I was extremely thankful my raid ended early, as I didn't sleep very well on Sunday night and was absolutely exhausted by the time I went to bed last night. I was in bed by 9:30 and probably asleep by 10, and would have slept through to 6am this morning if my damned cat hadn't been whining at the window to be let in at midnight (she darted out when I opened the door to let Onyx in, who had snuck out earlier when I put recycling out, and I hadn't even noticed him being gone).

We had an EXTREMELY good raid though... it only took us maybe 5 or 6 tries total, and we got our guild-first kill of Sartharion + 3 drakes. This means I now have my Twilight Vanquisher title! No new gear for me, but I was thrilled to see one of our officers who I really like get the special mount, instead of one of the jerks that have joined the guild recently.

I had originally been on backup last night, but they decided at the last minute to have 7 healers instead of 6, so I was pulled in. My original plan had been to pump ventrilo (the voice chat program we use while raiding) through my speakers so that I could listen in while I sat at the kitchen table doing lampworking, but when I pulled out my supplies, I discovered that it had been so long since I've done any that my bead release was completely dried up. Thankfully it can be reconstituted with water, so I just added some and sat at my desk shaking the jar and periodically adding more water to get it back to the right consistency to be usable. So I will be able to get back to my torch tonight! I have plans for a new set of beads for myself to go with the new outfit I'm making, plus plans for some other stuff as well. And I'm seriously thinking an annealing kiln is definitely in my future.

I woke up this morning and my cat was at the window, wanting to be let in. This immediately drew my attention to the fact that it is snowing, AGAIN. I gotta say... personally I've had enough of the stuff! Plus there's the fact that I'm going out today, and I don't really own any real winter boots.

At least the falling flakes will make good camera fodder.

So the plan that my date and I have for today is to meet up at one of the skytrain stations, and then we're going to have lunch at a restaurant down on Main St. that he's heard a lot of good things about, and it's gotten really good reviews on DineHere.ca, and then depending on how things go, I think we may end up wandering around on Main St., which has lots of funky shops and stuff. I had had the idea in my head to stop at my favorite yarn shop Three Bags Full, but they're closed right now for the Christmas break, I think, and it's next weekend that is their belated Boxing Day Sale. So instead I will head down there next weekend, as I have a $75 gift certificate (that I've been hoarding from Christmas 2006 - and yes it's still good, I checked!) and want to get the yarn and needles to make this adorable Star-crossed Slouchy Beret.

Alrighty, time to clean the litterbox and then hit the shower.
