Okay, so maybe that's a touch dramatic. But I'm still freaking sick.

I spent Wednesday in bed, mostly sleeping. During some lucid moments (i.e., in between dosages of codeine and night-time cold medicine) I knitted more of my snowflake lace socks. You know, I should knit while intoxicated on cold meds more often; I didn't knit nearly as tightly as I normally do. I ended up finishing Snowflake Lace sock #1 yesterday, but I think I need to pick up another ball to finish the other sock, since it looks like each sock takes about a ball and a half of yarn.

In other news, I am SO excited - Yaz is touring!!! Viva las '80s!


I have GOT to get tickets to see them when they hit NY in July. I had the luck of seeing Alison Moyet about 14 years ago when she toured for her HooDoo album - it was an all-acoustic show at The Academy and she encored with an acoustic version of Situation, quite possibly my all-time fave Yaz song. Her voice was incredible, so powerful and strong. It was a great show. I've seen Vince Clarke live a bunch of times, since I see Erasure every chance I get. But to think that I may get to see Yaz live is so exciting.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the lace sock. Gorgeous.

And LOVE LOVE LOVE Yaz. I thought I was hallucinating when I saw the ad on the cover of one of the entertainment papers here in the Windy City.
