I’m definitely sick. I went to bed at 8:30 and only got up at 7 because the cat was complaining about his lack of breakfast. And you know he’s not opposed to peeing on things if he’s unhappy.
And just getting up and doing that wiped me out. Being sick when you’re a single parent must be hell.
Anyway, yesterday I went to get my stuck earring taken out and I ended up just replacing them all with new, higher quality earrings.
The piercer and I were talking about how she got started and such and she was telling me about the first time she saw a woman covered in tattoos (as the piercer is) and how, when she saw that woman, her very first thought was “I bet nobody messes with her.”
And I keep thinking about the wonder of a woman who doesn’t get messed with.
It was also weird because the dude who ran the counter recognized my name, knew me from the Scene. I still don’t know how to handle that shit gracefully.
I also put a border on my Bauhaus blanket! And now I just have many ends to tuck.
But look how awesome it is!
It’s exactly what I hoped and better. I love the red border.
But I’m not buying any more yarn until those mermaid tails are done.
