Stupid Network

It happened yesterday at 1615. I got my invite to Ravelry. I didn't even sign up for it, Printtech PerkyGoth did it for me. I've read quite a bit over the community about how wonderful Ravelry is. I do agree, it's pretty kewl. But, (there is always a but...) I don't like the fact I have to post my pictures to flicker. I shouldn't make that big of a deal out of it, because if someone else wants to host my stuff, that's fine. Just haven't gotten around to setting up an account yet.

Anyway, I went home sick yesterday at 0800. Spent most of the day knitting and not doing much else. By 1500 I could not keep my eyes open, so I crawled into bed. When Grilltech got home, he woke me up. Nice little nap. Today I do feel a bit better, not by much, but a bit. It seems its a good thing I did come in to work, my other co-worker isn't in yet. Another morning of reskilling and reading. (I'm a good team player. Stop laughing, I am!) The co-worker just called, she won't be making it in. She sounds pretty bad. Hers is in the throat, mine is in the sinuses. Thankfully, she's 3000 miles away and we can't share.

It seems the network is also sick. One server is down on the east coast, now my mail server on the west coast is acting up. Seems I'll need to threaten it with my knitting. It hates me, that's all there is to it. Or it really likes me, and knows I really don't want to work. It's all in the spin.

You are right about the spin. It reminds of one of my favorite quotes about perspective - a crowded elevator smells different to a midget. Also, it reminds of my wife spilling a casserole all over our kitchen floor, and telling me she was having a bad day. I looked down and told her but our fat basset is now having a good day as he was devouring everything on the floor as fast as he could.

down time is knitting time:-) Feel better--and you know, I can't think of many times I've felt so badly that a nice nap didn't make me feel better:-)
