Call Me the Schoolinator. HOOah!

haHAGH! I've taken it back. My life is nearly mine once again. I owned you, school. Last night I got exactly 55 minutes of sleep. This, in addition to the fact that I have a professor who is possessed with some sort of manifestation of Evil, would have "done me in" if it weren't for the exorbitant quantities of caffeine and the relief of having all major projects completed and accounted for. Oh, and skipping my fourth and final class of the day.

Plans for the next four days? You betcha. Homework odds and ends, a flight to LA, a wedding, a flight from LA, a hangout with Neighbour. All very exciting.

Are knitting needles banned on flights? Is there a danger of poking the flight attentents into submission? "Airline peanuts. Now."

I haven't had time to knit anything for awhile. Mmmm...the thought of a cold, workless weekend, curled up on the couch with my sugarfree hazelnut no-foam latte, knitting needles a-clackin'. Hhhhhaaaaaa. Doesn't get any better.

I'm feeling a little delirious. I may go take a nap. I may watch some cartoons. I may do both.

"Knitting needles are permitted in your carry-on baggage or checked baggage. However, there is a possibility that the needles can be perceived as a possible weapon by the TSA screener. TSA Screeners have the authority to determine if an item could be used as a weapon and may not allow said item to pass through security. TSA recommends the following when bring knitting needles on an airplane:

* Circular knitting needles are recommended to be less than 31 inches in total length
* We recommend that the needles be made of bamboo or plastic (Not Metal)
* Scissors must have blunt points
* In case the screener does not allow your knitting tools through security it is recommended that you carry a self addressed envelope so that you can mail your tools back to yourself as opposed to surrendering them at the security check point.
* As a precautionary measure it is recommended that you carry a crochet hook with yarn to save the work you have already done in case your knitting tools are surrendered at the checkpoint.

Most of the items needed to pursue a Needlepoint project are permitted in your carry-on baggage or checked baggage with the exception of circular thread cutters or any cutter with a blade contained inside. These items cannot be taken through a Security Checkpoint. They must go in your checked baggage."

there ya go.
