Surgeon (on January 20): Wear the compression bandage for 3 days. Keep the sterile bandage on for 4 days. Leave these little suture strips on until they fall off.

I bet he thought that would happen in January.

Stoopid spoilery people are stoopid. Whether they're spoiling it for me or others is irrelevant. It is a particular kind of "Nah-nah" and is no less unattractive than the rich kid in school flaunting something they have,or the sibling ruining the Christmas present by telling what it is before the day. Just KNOCK IT OFF.

So, tree is up. The little one.

Angel has started coming into the living room, and in the last 5 days has knocked the untrimmed tree over twice. Consequently I needed to make sure that the ornaments I put on were mostly unbreakable. That meant most of the ornaments that most say "Christmas" to me are still in the boxes. And since it's such a small tree most of the fun Hallmark ornaments are too big. I'm blaming the above for my "Meh."

One the other hand, I did put this one on, since, being brass and silver, it's mostly safe.

It was a gift from dear friends, and carries memories of caroling, and singing for Midnight Mass, and a crowded living room full of laughter and food, friendship and love.

Hark! The herald angels sing.

I wonder if it's the bread, the chicken, or the mayo. Food is not supposed to hurt. :-(

Two cars stolen--while alarms were armed. Check.
One SCA friend dead. Check.
Two friends from high school dead. Check.
Two friends' fathers dead. Check.
One friend has iPhone stolen out of her hand and local metro PD add insult to injury. Check.
One of dearest friends falls down stairs, seriously injuring head, shoulder, and very badly ankle. Check.
Beloved friend's father is in hospital, another's mother is undergoing chemotherapy, and another's mother is drifting into the long twilight of Alzheimer's. Check.

1) 2011 is so fired!
2) Does anyone have GOOD news???

Perhaps not so much with the stabby stabby stabby and more with the ICBM.

Well, when I go out to Chez Dotts the diet is always...challenged. Lots of restaurant food, not much by way of meals scheduled other than dinner...not good. Between the restaurant fat and sodium, and the lack of fruit and veg....

I bring some healthy things. And try to watch portions, and follow the plan.

But I worry. So the fact that I only am up .8 lbs. from the last weigh in is probably a win.

But, on the downside, they've changed my WW. New system, new counts. *sigh* Given their track record (every re-do they've done has turned out to work better) I suppose I'll end up winning. Nonetheless, there's a bit too much change in my life right now--I really didn't need this on top of it all.

Whine--It's what's for dinner!

I really didn't need another name to add to the list of why I do the Walk for the Cure.

On a day utterly full of fail, I came home to a mailbox full of win thanks to the incomparable [ profile] moira_ramsay. As I am home alone I can show you only one, but they are soft, and warm, and brighten my day (in life the red is much more intense, towards the blue end of red rather than the orangy my poor iPhone displayed). The "swag" which accompanied is, in and of itself, balm beyond measure on any day, but especially on one as wretched as this.

I am blessed. And, yet again, I blame [ profile] wyz_azz. Thank you, truly.

I put this up for myself a couple of days ago, but the recipient has gotten them, so I can unveil. The yarn was an exquisite unworsted superfine wool in Aran weight. If I make them for myself I think I'll go with one size down, but I am happy with how they came out! FO behind the cut to save your bandwidth )

Made it home safe from Pax. We hope the deer suffered damage as minor as the Subaru did. We probably will never know.

So, we're driving through Manhattan, headed toward the Battery Tunnel. I was sitting on the drivers side of the van, so instead of paying attention to all the cool people and dogs and bikes, I'm looking at buildings, which is what's on my side.

Okay, NYers--do you have any clue about this? Near Canal Street, about 5 blocks before Ground Zero, was a building with this sign: "repent...and rent." Very...weird.

At some point I may write about the strangeness of the lack of ceremony attached to going past where the Towers once stood (yes, I did see them once--from inside,even), and my first sight of Lady Liberty (despite having been here before), but that is for another day. For now it is to bed, after the surreal experience of watching CSI: NY from one of the Five Boroughs.

Night all.
