"C" Is For Codeine...
First of all, if you've sent me an email since Tuesday, I'm sorry if I didn't respond. I had opened my Outlook (the old .pst file) and pulled in my "new" mail on Tuesday, 59 emails, but then during the process of trying to reinstall the real .pst file, I overwrote the temporary one and lost those 59 emails. I know most of them were bulk emails from some yahoo groups, but if I missed anything important I'm sorry. I'm deliberatly not opening Outlook now while online so I don't pull in anything new, until my Outlook problems are settled *fingers crossed*.

I worked all day today, the long 9-8 Thursday shift. Normally I look forwards to Thursdays 'cus it's "Sushi Thursday". Not tonight. Because I drove to work I didn't take my first dose of uber-drugged cough syrop (Hycodan) until 10am. So I took my next dose at 2pm, since the bottle says "every 4 hrs, as needed" and I was coughing quite a bit. I guess 1 tsp is too high a dose or every 4 hrs is too much for me, 'cus I ended up extremely dizzy and naseous, right up until now when I got home. That's over 4 hours! And I don't just mean I felt woozy, I couldn't work! I spent every minute since around 3pm rocking back and forth on my chair trying not to puke. I couldn't read, I couldn't do anything. I ordered supper thinking some food would help, and only managed to eat 2 maki pieces, not even whole rolls. And I had to FORCE myself just to eat those two. Luckily my dad understood and didn't complain about me just sitting there all afternoon and evening.

So I got no knitting done, and I don't think I'll do much tonight. I'm going to crawl into bed and watch CSI and Without A Trace while I tape The Apprentice.

Since I have nothing from today to show, here are two finished pictures of the entrelac in the round tam I made. While I was home on Tuesday I washed it in some Eucalan (my first time using it!) and blocked it on a dinner plate for a few days.

This is the hat, looking very beret-like, on my creepy mannequin.

This pic lets you see the very cool "flower" that's created when you decrease the rectangles on both sides to close the top of the tam. Even though I really look stupid in the hat, it was really fun to make and I would love to make them as gifts if I knew people would wear them. And the scratchy Alafoss Lopi really softens up when you rince it in the Eucalan, now it's soft enough to touch against the face, I wouldn't have done that pre-rinsing!

See you tomorrow. Send lots of prayers that my .pst problems will be fixed by then!
