Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

my bad

I don't know if it was a karmic snap-back for my tasteless attempt at yarn humor, or if it was just one of those things that's going around, but I got hit by a 36hour thing that felt like my sinuses were stuffed with lead birdshot and swamp ooze, and all I could bring myself to do was sleep, drink a little tea, and run to the bathroom. Then fall back asleep again. The cats have been delighted. Except for my dreams. The pastel carnivorous unicorns stalking me through the moonlit field of marijuana cacti while a sinister capital E giggled in the background pretty much pegged the needle on my WTF meter. I obviously get pretty twitchy during these dreams. Sometimes, cats digging in the claws to keep from getting launched off my fiercely flinching torso have managed to wake me right up. Other times, when I do wake up, I find new scratches that DIDN'T manage to wake me. But I'm feeling much better now. (Does anyone else hear John Anniston on "Night Court" when those words come up? He would relate something bizzarre he would do before his electroshock therapy, then smile beatifically and say, "But I'm feeling much better now.")

Anyhow, I AM feeling much better now, and if I need to apologize to anyone for my lack of taste in the previous post, I do so.

While sweating and dreaming, I came to a realization that I should be knitting more fingerless gloves. After what I paid for that insight, I'm not about to turn it down. Fingerless gloves are next on the list!

    Oh, my dear, what meds were you taking to cause such dreams? Last time I took Cipro and Flaygl, I couldn't sleep, but when I dozed off the dreams were more like hallucinations. Never again,unless I contract anthrax.
    Hope you are doing beter. I've been out the better part of 2 weeks with IBS flare-up. Yuck.
    "Yarn Porn" wasn't tasteless - just characteristic of the patented Roxie joie de vivre, and a very faintest spicing of exhibitionism. But we love you, among other reasons, 'cause you make us laugh even on the days our bowels, or sinuses, or whatever, are in turmoil. And that is good! Feel better -

    Glad you're feeling better. I'm sicker than the proverbial dog with the same thing right now. Periodically I get up to use the bathroom, make sure I still have the correct number of children and check the internet. About now I'd like to claw my face off just to get to the goo and clean it out.

    ps the only lack of taste from your last post would have been if you'd been frolicking in novelty yarn or cheap, day-glo acrylic. Beautiful hand dyed yarn made it art.

    Marijuana cacti? Sinister capital E? Wow... I want to go journeying in your dreams!

    I don't want to go journeying in your dreams - sounds way to weird for me.

    Hope you feel better soon so the cats can get some rest :-)

    Sounds like your dreams were visiting Charlie the Unicorn's universe:
