I Want to Knit
Friday, January 28, 2005
...lingering... what this stupid virus is doing. RRR I was looking forwards to getting some knitting done last night, for the first time since Tuesday. I sat down to prepare everything...nope. Head swirly. Nose runny. Throat coughy. Feeling sicky. I couldn't concentrate long enough to get anything done. Then again, I had worked from 9-8 at the store. I think I used up all my energy there. Hopefully I'll get something accomplished today. What a horrible time go get sick: Vegas scarf picture is due, along with 3 sweaters for the pet store! I don't want to wind up taking too long and looking unprofessional just 'cus I caught a stupid virus that's going around. RRR.

To Stacey from the comments and Auntie Mimi:
Thanks for the info on International Coffees, right in my grocer's aisle :) I'll be looking next time I go to the store.

To Orris from the comments:
Thanks for the Buckley's suggestion. Can I get those in Canada? Right now I'm surviving thanks to gargling with salt water and a nightly NeoCitran. Oh, and thanks for the hot toddy suggestion too. I don't think it's a good idea in my present state to operate any heavy know, like stoves or microwaves. But I'll file the suggestion for when Yannick is home to make one for me :) My grandmother also suggested something she learned from her mother-in-law, called a Guggle-Muggle. Basically it's hot chocolate with an egg yolk in it. You mix some sugar, egg yolk and cocoa powder in a glass, whisking, while warming milk on the stove. Once warm, you slowly add the mixture, then drink. Supposed to be very soothing too.

Phone just rang: dad saying "leave now." So I leave now.

    Hi Jen,

    I'm in Ottawa, and I can get them pretty much everywhere here.
    And if you make that Guggle Muggle with melted 70% dark lindt Lindor Chocolate (right over there, in Shopper's Drug mart, beside the Buckley's pills), and triple the recipe, I have a suggestion. Drink ONE cup of it. Pour the other 2 cups into a smallish glass baking dish. Nestle that in another glass baking dish. Add water to dish #2 until it comes halfway up the side of dish #1. Bake at 325 for about an hour. Presto! Instant pot de creme desserty thing....also an excellent mix for ice cream.
