Ep 6: Boring with lots of links.

My hair looks awful. I can’t decide whether to cut it again or let it grown out. That in-between phase sucks. Anyway… Sorry the audio is so quiet. Be prepared, it’s a little louder at the end. Also, I’m making custom thumbnails for all the videos.. I think only this one has shown up so far as this is being written. Hopefully they’ll all come up eventually.

Links, links, so many links.

Recipes:
+ Apple Cider Maple Spice Cupcakes by Lady Behind The Curtain+ Apple Pie Cupcakes by I Heart Naptime(Also made the two below recently. They were delish.)
+ Bacon, Egg, and Cheese In Crescent Roll Dough (If anyone knows where these originated from I’d like to replace my Pinterest link with the correct site)
+ Rolo Pecan Turtles from So Wonderful So Marvelous

Knits:
+ Jayne’s Hat: Ma Cobb’s Misadventures in Knitting by Lirantha (Notinknit) / Jayne Hat by Jess
+ Dwarven Battle Bonnet 2 by Sally Pointer (Wicked Woolens) / Mike’s Beefy Bearded Bonnet by Jess (no pics yet)
+ Holden Shawlette by Mindy Wilkes (Mindy Wilkes Designs)  / ‘Just Beachy’ Holden Shawlette by Jess (no pics yet)

Ep 3: Today’s slow and lethargic video brought to you by Daryl Dixon and howling coyotes

I forgot to mention but I watched Vikings and loved it. It makes me want to grow my hair back out simply so I can braid it like Lagertha’s. I also find it funny that yesterday’s viking hairdos are today’s white trash ‘dos. :3

  • Daryl’s Arrows on RedBubble (I didn’t get mine here, I forget where. Search around, there’s usually cheaper sources than RB for shirts. Their upside is you pick your own shirt color.)

Also, whilst editing, this convo went on between Yumi and I, which amused me greatly:
Jes: I filmed a blog tonight but it’s boring.
Bob: Do you squeeze lotsa yarn happily?
Jes: No. S’why it’s boring.
Bob: Slyff: “This yarn is so soft *squeeze* like the warm pelt of a large viking man.” It’d be funny if you was saying normal stuff but there was subtitles like that under you while you talking.
Jes: I almost wanna turn the file over to you n let you put subtitles like that next time.
