Jacaranda Time ticks away...

According to The Goat, the old saying at Sydney Uni is that once the Jacarandas in the Quad have started to flower, it's too late to start cramming for exams.

In a similar vein, the first Jacaranda blossom plopped down in the yard today.
And it's a keen reminder that I have a major scary deadline breathing down my neck and I am feeling waaay behind.

To remedy this, I choose to procrastinate in blogworld.

So I was reading Knit and Tonic, where the new Reader's Gallery currently features Lisa who garners a special 'clean house' mention from Wendy.

how is it possible that you can be a knitter (of animal hair -let’s face it folks) and have a dog (yet more hair…and loads of it) and not have frighteningly humungous dustballs in every corner?

Could it be:

a) It's not actually your home, just a day-rental for the photo shoot.
b) Ritalin.

I’ll spare you photos of my corners dear readers, Needles Edge likes to present the sanitised version for your viewing pleasure.

Thanks everyone for your opinions on the very pressing Ear issue. So far it's a tie. That means unless someone else votes between now and finishing, I may well have to cast the deciding vote myself, which in my current marking and deadline-brain-death, I may be incapable of.

Procrastination in blogworld is my favourite hobby (let's face it, if I didn't knit, it would quite possibly be my only hobby!). For me, the everlooming deadline generally provides me with the requisite adrenaline rush to get me through. But usually only the day before...good luck!

Ritalin. Clearly. I have entire dogs' worth of hair in my apartment.

Re: the ears, is the pointy one definitely out? Because it is definitely Max and not corn chip in my book.

Delighted to have discovered your blog, via a comment you left on Lena Corwin's site. What a marvellous mix of work, thoughts, inspiration and dogs. Very cool, and will definitely pass on to my knitting obsessed friend Jesse (see link to her site from mine).

And by the way, at my uni in Pietermaritzburg (South Africa), we'd sit under the Jacaranda trees hoping a blossom would fall on our heads for exam luck. Great alternative to studying, right?

In Canberra there's a saying that if you haven't started studying by the time the fluff starts flying you're f***ed. Or something like that.

Our trees produce fluff at this time of the year, not lovely purple flowers. :-(
