Tonight, at SnB, one of the ends of the circular knitting needles I was using broke off, resulting in me dropping about 40 stitches and not having much to do with the rest of the evening. The immediate result was that I said "fuck".

Me swearing in this way (at least around other people) is uncommon enough that it was the source of a certain amount of glee among the other SnBers, so I swore a few more times for good measure. Later, I dredged up an oath I hadn't used in a while and said 'Land o' Goshen' in reference to something (I don't remember what), which confused everyone. (One person thought I might have said 'Atlantic Ocean', which would be a pretty puzzling thing to say.) So to clear things up: I picked that one up from reading Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath in high school. I guess it's a Biblical phrase.

So, basically, I am a dork, which probably is not news.

In other SnB-related news, the owner of Perkatory (the coffee shop we met in) told us that if our group came back there he would give us 10% off. So, good.
