Thank you, the Universe…

I spent the latter days of this week making a dress…it came out nearly perfectly except for one thing- it doesn’t fit. I accidentally made it one size too small. *sigh* Ah well, I take comfort in the fact that I didn’t pay for the fabric and everything but the size came out well. It’s a pretty cotton.

This morning as I was getting ready for church, Than shoved past me and sat on the couch to put his shoes on. I whirled around and snapped, “What was that?” He gave me a long look, then replied, “Poor navigation.”

Church was nice. Mr. Noonan, the adult sunday school teacher, had us making sheep and shepherds out of craft foam, with googly eyes and cotton balls. Cheri decided the cutouts really looked more like a cat, and I thought they looked more like a brontosaurus, so we made our respective animals our own way. When Cheri added them to the flock of sheep, Mr. Noonan pronounced them gentiles. *grin*

After church the annual meeting took place. I’d packed a lunch in my bento box and sat with the little kids and Mollie ( a newer girl who’s about my age) to eat. Than surprised me by saying, “Is that your bento box? Wow, am I right? That’s cool! I want a bento box! Hannah, will you make me a manly bento box?”¬†I got a lot of comments on it, oddly enough. It was interestesting. My food was good so I spent most of my time eating. :P Mollie and I chatted for a while and compared iPods, then I listened in on the last ten minutes of the meeting.
Mom and I went out to Goodwill upon arriving home, as it’s supposed to snow heavily this week and I didn’t have boots. I found a nice old pair that should work nicely, and a whole lot of other exciting things (most of which I didn’t buy). The one thing I did buy, however, is a wok. I’d just said to Mom, “By the way, if you ever see a wok at Goodwill, buy it for me,” and there it was. Three bucks, so I shall feel no regrets if it doesn’t work for me. There was a truckload of really decent cookware, and several camp¬†cooking sets that I had my eye on. Big tin plates are so homey. Time to fill the hope chest. :D

Kit and I rewatched the latest Avatar stuff and had our weekly deep discussion about the plot and moral issues. Hurray! And now I’m off to enjoy some education.

    OK, U. Ted, A. Joni and Matt want to know – Hannah, what IS a bento box?????

    Ditto that.
    By the way, I’m assuming that that episode they were hyping was NOT the last Avatar episode?

    If your too-small dress fits me, can I buy it from you? =D Of course I understand if you want to keep it – I’m the same way about stuff I make – but I figure its worth the question. =D

    Oops, sorry Ted Pearsons! A bento box is just a little lunchbox, I guess it’s Japanese in origin. Traditionally made of wood, usually made of plastic. It’s just my lunch box. :P It’s relatively new so people hadn’t seen it before.
    Krissy: Correct! There’re ten eps left. I am very happy about that. ^.~
    Sonja: I admit I don’t really want to part with it so soon after working so hard on it…and it’s slightly embarassing to have my older friend be so much skinnier than me. >.<
    But you can wear it around of course! And maybe when I have a dress that does fit comfortably, you can have it.

    Though actually, I’ve just remembered that it’s empire and the dress being too small has nothing to do with my waist size. So depending on the width of your shoulders and back it might not fit you either. I suspect it would be tight on Krissy, her shoulders are about like mine, I think..

    Why embarassing?
