mellicious: pink manicure (Frank the Zombie)
I can’t sleep. I got up and took a benadryl and I’m hoping it kicks in soon. I’ve felt fairly crappy all day today and I really don’t want to miss work tomorrow. Especially since I am going to be gone Tuesday in any case, in order to have the damn needle biopsy that I put off last week because I was so sick. I have now been sick for just about two weeks, and I am awfully fucking tired of it.

Until today, I had actually been feeling better. The last couple of days I had still coughing some, but not quite as much, and I felt quite a lot better. Well, I don’t care - if I still feel this bad tomorrow, I’m staying home. They can manage without me for a couple of days, and I can stay home and lounge around in bed and read Harry Potter and take naps, and hope that  that makes me feel better, because I’ve had it with being sick.

Did y’all see the piece on Netflix on 60 Minutes? It made me want to watch all the Netflix DVDs that are lying around my house so I can get new ones. I had already watched one on Friday - the first four episodes of the Christopher Eccleson season of Doctor Who. Then tonight I watched another one - the last disk of the BBC Bleak House from last year. (I really do need to read that book.)

Yesterday we finally got the license plates for the new car, and since the check for the down payment also finally came through the bank this week, I finally feel like we actually own the car. I mean, really, if somebody wrote you a check for over $2000, would it take you three weeks to cash it? I was beginning to think they lost it.

I am at work, but I feel like crap. I'm going to be very tempted to go home later if I still feel this way.

Husquavarna exhibit

This is for [info]aet, who requested some pictures from the quilt show with people in them. (She requested that ages ago, too, and I promptly forgot.)

There are a lot of exhibits at the quilt show that don't allow pictures. I suppose that the light from flash pictures is probably not good for quilts in the long term, but really, I suspect that they forbid pictures for entirely different reasons. Very very often, the ones that don't let you take pictures then proceed to try to sell you a book or CD of said pictures. Coincidence? I think not.

Anyway, so I snuck this picture in from a bench across the way. (I wasn't actually IN the exhibit area, so I doubt that they could have stopped me even if they had noticed.) It's blurry, but I am beginning to think I like it that way.

Also - the overhead banner reminds me that I briefly toyed with the idea of naming my journal "Imagine That!" Mostly because it's something I say quite often - usually with more than a tinge of sarcasm. I doubt that the Husquavarna exhibit was trying to be ironic, though.
