14697 people are ahead of you in line!!

Another little parcel was waiting for me this morning when I got into the office. It was from T, who has sent me a lovely birthday card and a little present which is very squishy, but I'm not opening it till tomorrow. Aren't birthdays fun, the anticipation is the best bit!

I have added my name to the invite list for ravelry. When I go to check where I am on the list this is the message I get..........

You signed up on August 4, 2007
You are #22998 on the list.
14697 people are ahead of you in line.
654 people are behind you in line.
34% of the list has been invited so far

I think I will have a long wait as they are inviting about 300 people a day. Fine by me though, because hopefully by the time mine comes through I will have had my op and my hands will be back in full working order ready to upload all my knitting projects and get on with them. I am off to the treatment centre for my assessment on Thursday afternoon.

I finished Salem's Lot last night. I was warned that it was very scary but I didn't think it was too bad. I don't think I would like to watch the film though. I have picked up The Various Haunts of Men by Susan Hill to read next but I also got The Artist's Way in the post yesterday so am hoping to work my way through that in the coming weeks too. It was recommended to me by my physio actually.

I haven't read the book but the SL film certainly has some really scary 'shock, horror' moments.

The Various Haunts of Men made me really cross! I felt totally cheated at the end. Won't say more than that, as I don't want to spoil things! I'll be interested to know what you think of it.

Well, I'm 14959th in the queue so I'm not that far in front of you!

Ha! I'm #24175. That's going to be one jumping community!

You really have some scary books in your pocket. Brrrrr! But I do know The Artist's Way is a good one (not scary). :) There's a website, too. It looks interesting.


It's a popular book between the mister and I. In fact, we trade off possession of it. I can't find it right now, so I may have to get my very own copy.
