Roid Rage!

Yes, folks, we've escalated from inadequate antibiotics to steroid shots in the derriere... It seems to have eased the coughing slightly, but I am also feeling very aggressive and bulked up!!!! I'll cut you!!!! Okay, I'm feeling neither aggressive nor muscular, which I'm kinda disappointed about... wouldn't that be an unexpected development. Senor and I did get a bit more sleep last night, so that is a step in the right direction at least. And I got drops for the Eye of Pestilence.

Do I really need to tell you that our song didn't get chosen for American Idol? You'd have known if it was. Oh well. Go vote for those steaming piles that beat us anyway.

In knitting we have the following:

I'd be getting a lot more done on the Ruffled Surplice if I could get it to stop texting Krissy's Roza's socks. They're BFF (best fiber friends) because they come from the same magazine issue. In all seriousness (because knitting is serious stuff, people), this is a really fun knit so far! It's flying along, nothing like Senor's sweater at all. Hefty size 9 needles, nice KFI cashmerino yarn, lots of germs woven right in... well, it's almost a really fun knit. The pattern has a lot of "at the same time" in it, which makes keeping track of myself in my roid rage haze a bit difficult, but so far it seems to be coming out the right shape. I can't wait to wear it now that it's a ZILLION DEGREES OUT! Doh!!

And for Viejo Fuerte, a tree update:

It's hardly lush, but it's alive and it appears to be thriving. Some of those old dead leaves just won't fall off, though.

The thumbs are also good. I'm such a productive member of the human race.


Woah, that was just the steroids talking... We're all good, I swear.

Wow, whatever it is that you're making, it is going to be gorgeous!
I love the pattern... looks complicated, though.

my normally scrawny grandfather-in-law was on steroids for a lung condition of some sort (it was before I knew him) while doing work rebuilding a block wall in their garden, and ended up absolutely ripped. So it does happen, you just have to give it a little time and sweat (exactly what you were planning on doing while sick as a dog, right? I thought so)

if you end up on some competition in a bikini on ESPN, I think we won't be friends anymore.

(unless it's a world championship bikini knit-off!)
