in which we divert attention

Damn, this cold is kicking my ass.

In lieu of actual content, allow me to say that the knitting is going well, I have concerns about carpal tunnel (anyone out there have experience with this?), and hey, check out this: Evil Monkey’s Guide To Kosher Imaginary Animals.

A sample:

Arkan Sonney (fairy hedgehog) – A: “No, because
hedgehogs aren’t kosher, so a fairy hedgehog wouldn’t be any different,
monkey.” EM: “But they’re delicious!” A: “Even so.”

Also, selections from Pulp Fiction set to Shakesperean iambic pentameter:

"J: Speak ‘What’ again! Thou cur, cry ‘What’ again!
   I dare thee utter ‘What’ again but once!
   I dare thee twice and spit upon thy name!
   Now, paint for me a portraiture in words,
   If thou hast any in thy head but ‘What’,
   Of Marsellus Wallace!"

Oh, lovely lovely.

I actually feel worse than I did yesterday- how is that possible? Also, my whole team is sick now. How hateful.

I’m off to attempt knitting in a carpal tunnel wrist brace. Bah. If you had carpal tunnel- no, if you just strongly suspected you had carpal tunnel- and you didn’t want to bother seeing a doctor because you hate them and you’re not too bright, what would you do for care?

Yeah, I know. I know. I’ll call my doctor. Soon, I promise.

    If it makes you feel any better… I woke up with strep this morning :-p I have horrible luck with being sick. I just finished antibiotics on Saturday for a head cold type of thing and had strep last December already. AWFUL.
    Feel better soon 🙂

    If you suspect you have carpel tunnel you can buy one of those braces that holds your hand in a neutrally dorsoflexed position while you sleep. It will relieve the pressure on the nerve and may help. I played the viola for years, then went straight into knitting and get some carpel tunnel pain in both my hands and have staved off the need for any further intervention that way. If the pain/tingling/numbness continue you should definitely see a doctor.

    Aren’t there stretches you can do? If I weren’t in the midst of a raving ear infection, I might even google for you.
    Sorry you are sick. Must be the season.
