Couch snake 

Last night I dreamt I was sitting on a large white couch - like mine, but huuuuge - with lots of other people that I didn't know. Somehow, a nest small poisonous snakes got loose in the couch. Little nasty baby snakes were hiding all through the cushions. There was a woman who seemed to be "in charge" who said that all the snakes had been taken care of, but I kept seeing more. And you couldn't kill them by chopping them up, because the little pieces of snake would still come slithering at you.

Finally, someone handed me a can of snake killing spray. As I sat on the couch, several long snakes appeared from behind the cushions. I sprayed one, and it reared up at me, hissing, with it's fangs expose. I sprayed and sprayed and sprayed, until finally the snake fell over dead. I kept telling people that there were MORE SNAKES and that it was NOT OK!

It never seemed to occur to any of us to get off the damn couch.

knitter bug

I finished my poncho last night. I tried to take pics of myself wearing it this morning in the mirror, but they didn't turn out so well. Maybe tonight I'll get Kev to take some.

Now I just have to wait patiently for my supplies from knitpicks to come in so I can start on the tote bag.

health update

feeling much better today. I got home last night and just crashed on the (snakeless) couch. I was supposed to go to Curves, but I just felt too crappy. My right side ached - phantom gall bladder pains!

But this morning I felt MUCH better. And I'm happily noshing on a Thai Kitchen soup bowl (pretty good, actually, first time I've tried it) and...Doritos. (certain people will laugh when they read that.)



shit, now I have to learn how to knit in the round, knit on double pointed, pick up stitches...and...felt. ack! what made me think I could do this? too many new skills in one project!!!!
