If you shoot at mimes, should you use a silencer? ~ Steven Wright

My restrictions continue. I have managed to find a way to knit while lying flat on my back. However, it’s not very fast and my wrists tend to go numb so I usually only knit a row or two at a time. Still, it’s nice to be able to knit just a little bit.

Besides being bored out of my skull because I can’t do anything, I’m also bored with TV. I’ve been spending a lot of time listening to XM Classics. (It’s channel 864 on DirecTV.) The unfortunate (or maybe it’s fortunate) side effect of lying down and listening to this station is that I usually fall asleep. However, I suppose sleeping a lot is good for me right now since it does allow the body time to heal. And believe me, it’s time for me to be healed!

Kishka has been dragging her food dish into the living room and then flipping it before she dines.

Instead of bugging her with my cane (which, I admit, was fun), I’ve been giving her belly rubs with it:

Friday’s Feast:

What do you consider to be the ultimate snack food?
Ritz crackers spread with peanut butter.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 as highest), about how popular is your last name?
I’d say a 3 or 4.

Who is your all-time favorite sitcom character, and why?
I would say it’s a tie between BJ Hunnicutt and Niles Crane. I can’t really pinpoint why I like BJ so much. I’ve just always loved the character and prefer the BJ years of MASH to the Trapper John years. As for Niles, I think he’s the funniest character on the show.

Main Course
Do you shop online? If so, name some sites you like to browse for goodies.
I do most of my shopping online (including window shopping). My regular stops are: Overstock, Target, Knit Picks, Loopy Ewe, Amazon, LL Bean, Lands End, Etsy and Ebay.

Fill in the blank: I think ___________ should be ___________.

I think the media in this country should be reporting on real news and not entertainment fluff.

  1. Check out old episodes of THIS AMERICAN LIFE which you can get streamed online. It’s a great way to kill a few hours when you’re stuck and bored and need something to knit to . . .

    Feel better soon!

  2. Well I’m glad you found a little way to knit, even if it’s just a little.

    Kishka is so funny, and cute. Glad your enjoying torturing her, or um, rubbing her tummy, with your cane.

  3. I can’t even imagine how it is, living reistricted as you are right now. I’d like to know why Kishka empties her bowl before eating her food?

  4. I couldn’t agree more with that last comment about the news reporting NEWS rather than fluff. I could care less that Paris Hilton is in jail, out of jail, WHATEVER. Why is that newsworthy???

    Sorry. Guess you pushed one of my buttons. ;-Þ

    I’m really sorry you’re having to go through this trial in your life. It’s difficult not being in control of our bodies. I think I remember reading that you don’t believe in God. I do, and will pray for you to rapidly recover from this crap so you can get on with your life. 🙂

  5. I’m sorry you’re still restricted. Glad you found a way to knit. I love peanut butter ritzs too. In fact (despite the carbs) I eat one of those mini packs as a treat. 🙂
