A List

magknitspeek1.jpgI guess I had the right sick day. It was so cold here, only 3 school districts within the radio station’s reach were open. Not a snow day, a cold day, which just almost never happens here in mid-Michigan.

I didn’t leave the house all day, and now today it’s warmer. Still too cold but better. My car will want a long warm up today.

OK, I don’t have as much time for a long blog, so you get a list today. I have been sleeping off the cold which takes a lot of time! Now I’m up late and I will have to work for 3 hours teaching at Rae’s tonight, and believe me there are things to do before leaving home (even though I am moving slower than usual).

I’m much, much better than I was, although I still need a pack of trusty Kleenex everywhere I go. I will sit to teach tonight instead of stand, I bet, but I will teach.

Here are some bits of information you might like to know:

  • I teach Sock Darning tonight (Thurs.) at Rae’s Yarn Boutique, 6-8pm. Merely $15 for one session. Bring your own wounded socks or I’ll have some you can practice with.
  • I will have a design in the MagKnits issue which comes available tomorrow. Woohoo! (See photo tease above.)
  • I put up six used knitting books on my shopping cart for sale, good pricing and $1 shipping.
  • I am dancing at New Aladdin’s Restaurant on Friday night, half-hour shows 6:30 and 8:00 (Outer Frandor in Lansing, near video store and Sparty’s) No cover, tips welcome.
  • Brian and I sing next Friday 2/8 at Foods for Living, 4-6pm, no cover
  • Paz of “The Cooking Adventures of Chef Paz” also has a photo blog, pics of New York City, called “Paz’s New York Minute

    Clue me in on this “cold day” thing. Does that mean that it’s just too darn cold to go outside so they close the schools and such?

    Is it like a “Don’t walk to school, Billy, you’ll end up frozen solid halfway there.” kind of deal?

    The situation reminded me of something that Ambassador Lando Molari (in the TV series “Babylon 5”) said:

    “When I said my quarters were cold, I did not mean: ‘Oh, I think it’s a little chilly in here, perhaps I’ll throw a blanket on the bed.’ No, I said it was cold! As in: ‘Oh, look, my left arm has snapped off like an icicle and shattered on the floor.’ This is highly inappropriate, Captain.”

    Is *that* what a “cold day” is about?

    LOL! I read the B5 passage for my husband (with appropriate accent) and I thought it was hilarious. Turns out he never watched the show! Dang! What a waste of a good eastern european accent!

    Oh, wow! Hi Lynn: Thanks for the special mention! I hope you continue to feel much better.
