I watched college kids- apathetic college kids- gather around a television and cheer and cheer today. It was beautiful. Well- I saw them gathered and I heard the cheering because somebody had to man the library! I had to watch the inauguration on BBC because I couldn't get it to stream on C-SPAN, CNN or Fox- which was pretty intense.

I also realized something today- it has been about six months since I've moved here, to "live with" Ranger Man, and (pre-deployment) he's been here about 6 weeks. I haven't yet decided if that's a good ratio or a bad one.

I spent the weekend baking, knitting and reading- altogether not a bad (long) weekend all things considering.

I even took pictures of my Finished Objects from my compulsive Christmas knitting. There are pictures of the socks that are literally three inches longer than my foot. It's kind of funny looking. Someday soon I'll release them from the the confines of Ranger Man's camera and set them free into my flickr account. Right now, there is a cat on my lap so I must go.

I'm going to vote for that being a good ratio. :) If you still lived on the island, how much would you have seen him in the last six months?

I don't know if I'll ever try knitting a pair of socks... I like things that are rectangle. :)
