After a dead battery in a two month old car on Monday and my identity being stolen on Wednesday, and having to work full shifts on Friday and Saturday.  My week from "Hell" ended on a high note.  I got to go see "The Rocky Horror Picture Show"!  I haven't seen a live showing of RHPS in over 10 years, and I had a fabulous time.

I've included a couple of pictures to give you an idea of the good time we had.  The troupe that performed the show put on the same show in Ohio once a month, and I plan on making a few trips down there to see them again.

My friend "BelovedOne" and her friend A., as Magenta and Columbia.  I also got a pic of them posing with the cast's "Dr. Frank-N-Furter", who was out-standing by the 

I'm not sure who this group was, but they were nice enough to pose for a picture for me.  They had a great time, and made the show even more fun for me to watch.

Another shot of "Frank-N-Furter".  He was rocking those costumes.

It was a great show, with great friends, and an excellent cast of characters, on and off the stage/screen.

There was a bit more drama at the end of the night, though.  Shortly after I got home, I heard a commotion outside and went out to see what was going on.  My neighbors garage had caught on fire and burned to the ground with two cars inside.  Luckily no one was hurt.  But we were outside for hours making sure everything was completely extinguished, and no one was in any danger.  It made for a really long day, (3am to 3am).

This is what was waiting for me when I got home from work today.  Three packages, that's right THREE packages.  I was so excited I almost forgot to take Harley out for his potty break.

The box contains my Golding Spindles.  Thanks to one of my friends on Plurk, for suggesting I check them out.  Once I saw them I couldn't help myself, I immediately bought two of them.  And even though I haven't actually spun with them yet.  I am in love.  How could I not be!  Both are made from a purple wood.  One has a 2" Whorl, the other has a 3" Whorl.

I also got more sock club yarn.  And fiber, including more "BFL".

This is "Sweet Dreams" - BFL Wendleydale Colonial, from Copperpot Woolies.  My pic does not do the colors justice.  The blues and purples are gorgeous.  And I can't wait to spin it up.  I only hope I can do it justice.

These two came from "".  They were so inexpensive I wasn't sure that I would like them, but I love the colors, and they are both very soft to the touch.  The reds is " Frutos del bosque romm" and the purple and yellow is "Flor del Lotto romm".  Check out this site.  You will be pleasantly surprised!

This months "Yarn Pirate" is probably my new favorite colorway.  I just wish I could get a better picture of it.

And this is this months "Plucky Classics".  Not as crazy about the colors.  Too much green for my tastes.

I had a pretty good few mail days, wouldn't you say?  Not a bad haul at all!

You will LOVE the Golding spindles. I have the same purple one you got-- the 2" one.
