2 blizzard day. and Church of Jediism

It is never good when you have a 2 blizzards(okay TECHNICALLY 1 mcflurry and Dq M&M Blizzard but still way to much!) in one day.

But all changed when THIS came to my doorstep....

oh man! I am no way near a hard core manga/anime person but... IT WAS 50% off at BLICK! WITH the 12 pack of COPIC markers included! OMG are these markers are a thing of beauty. And I have not even cracked open the book yet!

And than I got my Country Living magazine and I was ALL SORTS OF HAPPY! The cover story is all about collecting... *squee*

So you may ask - why the 2 blizzard day? Will spare you all the gory details -two things came up today that was very stressful for me.

1) Knee - good news is my knee is not broken (THANK YOU GOD!) but they don't know if I have a torn meniscus. I have to wait 3 weeks to see if it has gotten better or worse and than from there a MRI. The doctor said that he doesn't think I have a torn meniscus - but we have to watch and see. I said to him... "well we better not, I have a holiday in less than a month and I AM STILL GOING!" lol. He said -" no worries, that is fine - I waited for 6 months before I even had my meniscus looked or operated on! "LOL. OH man I love that Doctor!

So right now I am supposed to put my leg up, put ice or a warming pad on it and put a elastic cuff like thing from Walgreens on it so that nothing *shifts*. The only problem is this little beastie:

She won't get of the heating pad and that is sitting on my knee! She has no disregard for said knee because she will STAND ON IT. Lol. Than gives me a look of oh WHAT IS WRONG?!! lol

2nd Blizzard - BIGGEST GERR EVER. My sister calmed me down enough so I shan't go there.

Btw - did everyone see this church?


'Darth Vader' spared jail in Jedi church attacks
6 hours ago
HOLYHEAD, Wales (AP) — A man who dressed up as Darth Vader, wearing a garbage bag for a cape, and assaulted the founders of a group calling itself the Jedi church was given a suspended sentence Tuesday.
Arwel Wynne Hughes, 27, attacked Jedi church founder Barney Jones — aka Master Jonba Hehol — with a metal crutch, hitting him on the head, prosecutors told Holyhead Magistrates' Court.
He also whacked Jones' 18-year-old cousin, Michael Jones — known as Master Mormi Hehol — bruising his thigh in the March 25 incident, prosecutors said.
The two cousins and Barney Jones' brother, Daniel, set up the Church of Jediism, Anglesey order, last year. Jedi is the faith followed by some of the central characters in the "Star Wars" films.
The group, which claims about 30 members, says on its Web site that it uses "insight and knowledge" from the films as "a guide to living a better and more worthwhile life."

"We all love the films and what they stand for. Obviously some people are going to laugh about it," the Wales on Sunday newspaper quoted Barney Jones as saying last month. "But a lot of people do take it seriously."
Unfortunately for Hughes, his March attack was recorded on a video camera that the cousins had set up to film themselves in a light saber battle.
"Darth Vader! Jedis!" Hughes shouted as he approached.
Hughes claimed he couldn't remember the incident, having drunk the better part of a 2 1/2-gallon (10-liter) box of wine beforehand.
"He knows his behavior was wrong and didn't want it to happen but he has no recollection of it," said Hughes' lawyer, Frances Jones.
District Judge Andrew Shaw sentenced Hughes to two months in jail but suspended the sentence for one year. He also ordered Hughes to pay $195 to each of his victims and $117 in court costs.
In the 2001 United Kingdom census, 390,000 — 0.7 percent of the population — listed Jedi as their religion.

So maybe life isn't that bad. :)

Hugs all! Nan and naughty Aine.

Take care of that knee!

Did you see these Darth Vader cupcakes over at Craftzine?

My ice cream weakness is the Cappucino Blast at Baskin Robbins. I think I just might have that for lunch.

Your poor knee but love it that Aine just wanted to hang out on the heating pad. My cat loves to lay on me when I am sick. Hope the knee heals quick.

It's interesting to see just how permeant digital memory has become in our every day lives. It seems like everywhere I turn, I see something with a card slot or USB port, haha. I guess it makes sense though, considering how inexpensive memory has become lately...

Gahhhh, I shouldn't be moaning and groaning. I can't make it through a single day without my R4 / R4i!
