And here's the gold
How cool is this? The medal was designed by Franklin, and I'll have to figure out how to put it in the sidebar but I am not messing with that tonight, thank you. I got a headache Saturday night that seems to be gone now, but the intervening time was Not Pleasant. (Worrying that you are going to miss seeing the Olympic-gold-medal-winning-goal-in-overtime because you have to go throw up isn't the best feeling. [In the end, I did see the goal, as well as all the Sidney Crosby adulation that followed.] Of course, feeling like you have to throw up, but being unable to because you haven't eaten anything since the last time you threw up, is also not fun, and that was 9-10 last night.) Hang on...
I think I do this a lot, veer parenthetically sideways, and lose track of my original path. Where was I going with that? Who knows. I stayed home from work today, but summoned the energy to go stitch and bitch tonight wearing the new vest, yay! Going back to the socks-in-progress, with the skinny yarn and little needles, was a bit of a shock. And now I'm wiped out, and getting ready for bed.
