Internet stalking and orange felt

So sometimes I do a little internet stalking, you know, trying to keep tabs on my name and where it’s getting. It’s a morbid kind of fascination, to plug your real name or your internet alias or a nickname into a search engine and see what comes out. There’s some records with my real name up on the interweb from different schools I’ve attended, or jobs I’ve worked at, and there’s a couple of searches that lead you here.

Someone keeps finding my site by searching for “pixelicious!” But you know, my handspring flaked out hardcore just when I started to think about taking more pictures. And even though the mister gave me his handspring, which he apparently not taking full advantage of in its wonderfulness, well, I just haven’t gotten out the eyecam. So sorry, pixelicious-searching-dude. I don’t have what you’re looking for. Maybe one day I’ll be pixelicious again, but now, well, I’m just not.

And apparently, if you do a msn search for k a r i I’m number 316. sweet. Another weird thing! Person who looked through 316 webpages before you found mine, was I who you were looking for?

So last entry I raved about I just found out they’re CHARGING. Man. I just snuck in on the tail end of that free service! I didn’t pay for my font, and now that they’re charging I’m not going to go beef up my old one. I’ll just stick with it as it is, and write everything VERY LARGE in points greater than 26.

I started cutting out the orange felt for my sparkly skirt. I am having a hard time, because while I do have a nice a-line skirt to follow it’s kind of tough getting the felt to hang the way I want it to. Plus, when I pin it together inside out and slip it on the pinned edges stick straight out and it’s hard to see what it looks like. I’m excited about it anyway, though, because it’s going to be nice and stiff and I’ve got some snap tape to fasten it with. It’ll be really cool if I ever get it cut right. I saw a classmate wearing a very sweet skirt that changed every preconception I had about what I was going to make out of the orange felt: her skirt was longer, non-orange, and had the coolest pockets I’ve ever seen. I might have to try to make up the orange skirt like that.

February is turning out to be a very busy month. I wanted to clean out one box/bag/flat surface in my room each week but I haven’t done that for quite some time. It’s a shame, really. I have so many good intentions and instead I’m going to musical concerts and field trips to brownfield sites and having out of town guests and looking forward to parties and fun at the end of the month. And now I’m working very late on some homework, and I have an interview tomorrow. Because, you know, I’m graduating. In May. And my new motto is non-student loan debt free in 2005! So I actually have to get a steady source of income, and you know, practice my trade.
