OBJECTIVE: Watch Avatar once per every week of 2014.

WHEN: February 21, 2014, 6:40 pm. (Week 8, Feb 16-22.)

WHERE: In my apartment in Portland, ME.

FORMAT: Blu-ray on a Vizio 47″ LCD HDTV.


PHYSICAL AND MENTAL STATE: Feeling sick and depressed.

It was difficult psyching myself up to watch Avatar today. Fortunately, I discovered something to keep me from gnawing my own leg off in boredom. Yes, that’s right, I’ve followed through on my threat from two weeks ago to take up knitting. With a little help from a friend, I’ve learned how to knit a very basic stitch (no purl for me) and have started on a scarf. Having worked myself up to a level where I can successfully knit while still looking at the screen in front of me, I’m finally ready to knit my way through an Avatar viewing.

So, how much did I knit?


This much!

Holy cow! Approximately 54 rows! Is that a lot? Hell if I know. I’m not a knitting expert.

Woooooooo, knitting. See you next week.
