I hab a code id by dose

And I have to go to work today, so I reserve the right to be whiny and demand large bowls of hard-to-find-in-the-suburbs Thai soups. Luckily, all I have to do is babysit the police scanner and make sure there are no dire emergencies that demand the attention of a newspaper reporter/ editor today. And drink tea. I may have to drink lots of hot tea.
I tried Tylenol nighttime cold medicine last night, but it did nothing to cure the sinus headache that kept me up until 2 a.m., and actually gave me fidgety feet, so I think today, I'll see if the unmedicated life is worth living.
But what of my sinuses, when there are knitted hedgehogs to look at?
It's the Fiber Trends pattern, knitted with some leftover Brown Sheep and a skein of fun fur from JoAnns.
Above, Mr. Hedgie (who went to live with two small children) demonstrates that everyone likes Socks That Rock, even inaminate objects. That's a skein of Scottish Highlands, which the Fool bought solely based on its name. He's turning it into socks as we speak and will undoubtedly post shortly.
Speaking of socks, it is a pair of those that earned the coveted "First FO of 07" in my list. They are made of KnitPicks in a colorway they call "daffodil," but I call "peas and carrots." They are for a friend of ours who kindly rewired the plug to my mom's old iron so I can continue using it and they are not photographed? Why? Because it feels like my head is stuffed with wool.

Time for tea.

That's always a rotten situation to be in. The hot tea sounds like an excellent idea and I suggest Advil Cold and Sinus as an effect medication.

I hope you feel better very soon.

Advil Cold and Sinus? Hmm. I'll give it a try. I'm a fan of Advil in general for headache relief.

OMG! There really is a decent use for Fun Fur afterall!!

Hedgie is quite cute!

I'm currently awake due to, "a code id by dose"...i can totally relate!

Feel better soon!

I'm all about the sleep in a pack, aka Theraflu, or Nyquil gelcaps.
