You know it is bad when you need to schedule in sleep, and while I'm not quite there maybe I'd be a saner individual if I had already succumbed to that level.
Lately my life (outside of work) has been segmented into three main pieces: walking Victor, rehearsing (which also includes going to set builds and the like), and wrestling with technology. I know I've done more than that, but those are the only things I've really remembered funnily enough.
I finally found the time to put my new copy of Sweeney Todd on my iPod only to find that my little piece of technology insisted on putting all of the songs in order by their artist even in album view. Gah! So, I've been kicking my little iPod all over the proverbial landscape of updates and syncing. I'm hoping that the update/syncing that I left running this morning does the trick, and that Victor didn't get bored and decide that iPods could be food too. We'll see after I get home from the grocery store.
In other news, I got the Kobo for my birthday and have been reading up a storm without feeling like I'm carrying 2 million pounds of books. Now, I'll admit that the first thing I read was complete and utter drivel with more sex scenes than plot, but since then I've read a couple of really sweet books. I've also been enjoying the ability to multitask with my simple knitting (umm, stockinette without shaping for the moment) that being virtually hands free allows me.
This isn't to say that there are not issues with the Kobo. For example, I left it on today and it wasn't responding when I tried to do a little bit of reading over lunch. I figured I would add it to my tech wrestling pile for tonight and hopefully go back to enjoying my book by dinner.
I'm working on the Whisper Cardigan in the new Brown Sheep lace weight. It's simple, which is a good fit for the commute and breaks during rehearsals. As much as I love more complex knits, I know that something this simple and versatile will get used a lot more often than the top with the fancy colorwork and so I am plugging away at it. I'm about halfway done the back, and will hopefully be done the second sleeve by week's end and onto what at least one person on Ravelry called the never ending ribbing!
