Inconsequential

Is how I'm feeling this week. Now, before you say anything, let me explain. This week:
1) Anne-Marie defended her thesis, making her Dr. Dr. Anne-Marie, MD, PhD! She also has a Masters, which means she has almost a whole alphabet after her name these days...
2) Kristen had her baby, Alexander, who was born yesterday at 7:50pm and weighed in at 8 lb 15 oz!
3) Jennifer gathered the lunch knitters together to tell us that she is pregnant, and due in February. I admit we all saw this one coming, even though I think she was trying to surprise us...
4) Rachel is defending her thesis tomorrow. Surely it will be a great success and a smashing party to follow on Saturday.
5) Craig (my labmate) and his wife bought a house.

Me? I've been watching the Olympics and debating with Dave over whether or not we should go to Victoria for a long weekend in September. Seriously, compared to everyone else I am very ordinary these days. BUT, don't get me wrong, I'm absolutely not complaining, I am SO happy for all of them I feel I could burst!

Oh, and about the vampire "problem" I've been having? I've decided that it's best not to obsess alone, so I've created four newborns here in Seattle. Just call me Victoria...

Ah, and because I wouldn't want to not have any photos, here is the yarn I bought at Stitch & Pitch last week: It's a mitt kit (say that a few times fast) by Ruth Sorensen using the Noro Kureyon sock yarn. Anne-Marie bought one as well (in a different pattern), so we'll be having a knitalong some day soon, although it'll probably be after she moves back to Montreal (which we aren't discussing).

I get to be the first one to point this out to you... having babies and buying houses, and even defending theses, are all rather ordinary things to do (I can't say the same for the lady with the inspiring alphabet soup after her name... not ordinary). You get to be the fun weird one!
