Seriously. Four months since I’ve been on here? Apparently that chemo cap took the life right out of me. Always hideously depressing to knit those things.
My sister set me the challenge of making a baby hat that matched one in a greeting card. Did a mashup of:
Knit the hat twice, because the first time it just didn’t have the cuteness factor. It was a good thing I had to knit it twice, since I once again tried to do my civic duty. I knit furiously before and after I spoke to try to release the adrenaline. I hate speaking in public, have I mentioned that?
Went out to tell a bunch of officials (volunteer and elected) that they were messing up once again. Dealt with one bully, an embarrassing appearance on the city’s tv channel, a newspaper article, and they were forced to change their minds. Temporarily.
I really need a new windmill to tilt against, because I’m never going to defeat this one. They’re never going to get this one right, I guarantee it.
Current audiobook: Just finished The Collected Stories of Winnie-the-Pooh performed by Stephen Fry, Dame Judi Dench, and Jane Horrocks (Bubble from Absolutely Fabulous, and LV in Little Voice. If you haven’t seen Little Voice, it will absolutely blow you away.)
Currently Reading: Reading most of the past year of Frazz online. Cannot get over how much I enjoy that comic.
