Well there’s your problem!

Waking up this morning was not the best of all possible experiences. My hips and my back hurt quite a bit, and I was more than a little peeved with the black ball of fluff who started insisting it was time for breakfast sometime around 3:45. I finally appeased the felines around 6:30, and discovered that walking was requiring both effort and thought, and that even when given plenty of both, the process was still both slow and unpleasant.

After I got home from dropping G off at the bus, I went through my usual morning pre-computer routine.1 This time, I also grabbed a couple of ice packs.2

Thus supplied for the morning, I hobbled downstairs, and went to set up my laptop.3 It was at this point that I realized that the power cord for said laptop was still upstairs, in my carryon.

Crap. (more…)

PSA: {Knitting geeks} ∩ {Gardening geeks}

I couldn’t really be bothered to make an actual Venn Diagram, so set notation will have to suffice.

Anyway, I know that I have friends who knit. I know that I have friends who garden. I do not currently know how much overlap actually exists between these two sets of friends, but I figure there’s gotta be some, right?

For those (currently theoretical) friends who both knit and garden1, KnitPicks has a pattern that might be of interest to you. Go! Go get cozies for your plants!
