RuPaul's Dragulator

So the knitting site where I lurk (mostly), LSG, had this as a link. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to see what I'd look like as a drag queen. I totally recommend giving it 5 minutes of your time. It's hysterical. I give to you RuPaul's Dragulator:

general update

Well, I have completed the FAFSA for both school years, and have officially completed and signed the PHEAA papers today. I talked to my psychiatrist about the missing forms for OVR. Seems that OVR has no record of receiving her forms and she cannot seem to locate copies either. She assures me that they will get done this time.

Today's topic of discussion with the psychologist was my self limiting behavior towards goals. My lack of self-confidence in
pretty much everything I do leads me to 1) brush off genuine good compliments because I don't feel I'm worthy of them or 2) not undertake things at all for fear of prophetic failure thus validating crappy self image. I'm willing to accept faults in others where I expect perfection in myself. It's something that I will have to be conscious of with respect to starting school. I'm most likely not going to be a straight A student, I will have to accept B's (and maybe C's in some classes). Now, I cringe at the idea
of anything less than an A. After all, I have a fully capable brain, don't I? The answer is a qualified 'Yes.' It's been a long time since I was in school and I'm still not always all together there, you know? I've gotten rusty after all these years. I'm going in with a positive attitude and the knowledge ahead of time that I'm not going to be SuperDory just plain Dory and hopefully that will make the difference.

On the plus side, I have a math workbook that a friend had left me that I'm going to start working on, hopefully giving me a leg up on algebra, trig, and *shudder* calculus. I think Math110 calculus is the scariest thing I have on the horizon. The good news is I don't have to take it my first semester. Pshew!

Went to the spinner's guild meeting tonight. It was just Choperena and me at Barns & Nobles. We had a pretty good time looking at books and I spun. I lurv my spinning wheel.

I'm hoping for 10" of snow, but I don't think we're going to get it. I think we'll be lucky to get 5"...

OH! And I finished a necklace today!! The colors didn't come out very well in the photos. It's pink cat's eye cabochons with pink, orchid and purple seed beads. The clasp is along the side and is
done as a snap. I wore it to the 'meeting' tonight
and it's very comfortable...
