After reading through your tumble, I just had to posit the hypothetical and potentially hilarious question of: what if MRA's reacted to job rejections the same way they reacted to the rejection of their sexual advances? Just imagine if they treated interviews and potential employers the same way they treated women. Maybe people would realize how ridiculous those attitudes are then.
The funny thing is I actually know someone who was like that about a promotion. He kept going on and on about how he was being pushed aside for “assholes and slackers” and that he was *SUCH* a nice guy.
Dude smelled crazy bad though, was always wearing dirty clothes and (this was at a restaurant by the way) hardly washing his hands. But no, he was overlooked for a managerial position because he was too NICE to the owner.

It’s been awhile since I last posted and for good reason. Family is in the middle of a big move - haven’t moved from our current location since before little Alexsaurus Rex was born. So we have a lot of junk and old baby stuff to rummage through before actually packing. :-/ As for my stitches, well… I haven’t been able to properly start a stitch, save for an awesome sampler I made for hubby. I’ll have pictures as soon as I have a free moment from work, pre-employment junk for my *new* job, setting up daycare for Alexsaurus, and packing and moving.
Add potty training to that list too. Alexsaurus doesn’t like his diapers anymore, and wants more Spiderman underoos.
Front of my Kindle Fire case, and my cellphone case (the thing in green). The kanji means, “love”. The stitch on the cellphone case is a skull and cross-NEEDLES. :)
Back of my Kindle Fire case. It’s kanji for “fire”. I got the pattern from a cross stitch book: “Manga Cross-Stitch Make Your Own Graphic Art Needlework” by Helen McCarthy.
Sorry for the lack of updates. Been really busy with Christmas that I honestly had no time to stitch (save for three small pieces). The Pikachu necklace and a few stitches for my Kindle Fire case that I use from a stitch book I got for Christmas. Anyway, I just ordered everything I’m gonna need for my Harry Potter epic-chibi blanket,so that’s high on the list.
Also finished reading “Fruits Basket” in full, so expect me to do a Kyo, Yuki, Momiji, or Kisa stitch (those are my favorite Jyunnishi!).
So right now, no official big project is lined up. At least, not until after Christmas. I’ve learned a bit of embroidery, so I may take a few photos of the Gucci-inspired wallet I’m working on, as well as a few little things (like a large Nyan Cat necklace I’m currently on) in a few.
Holiday-wise, it’s going great! Alex is 2 1/2, so he’s now getting the whole Christmas season; we’re doing an Advent Calendar and Elf on the Shelf things this year, and he really is excited about it. Every morning, he runs to the Advent Calendar for his daily present, and then once he gets it he goes to find where the Elf went. (or where we put it) It’s really cute!
I also have an upcoming interview for a position a few towns away, and I’m hoping I get it. It’s working with adoption and foster care!! :) It’s so awesome.
Now off to finish that Nyan Cat.
So I will probably not update for awhile, and if any updates do pop up, they’ll be works in progress.
I have two girls that are due to having babies in the upcoming spring (my baby sister and a friend from high school), so I’m working on projects for both of them.
My friend is big into Harry Potter and I found the CUTEST Harry Potter chibis. I’m planning on making a baby blanket for her little one.
My sister is with someone with the last name of a very confident, rug-wearing captain of Star Trek, so obviously I’m making a ton of Star Trek-related stuff too.
My to-do list is packed!
My first venture in 3D stitching. Again, not a great attempt, but I have got the hang of it now. I may re-attempt this one, but not for awhile. (I nearly used up all of my 742 thread on this!!)
Sprite is found on Spriter’s Resource. Pattern was created by ME, so no distributing this please, without appropriate credit! :) Just enjoy and HAVE FUN!!
