I called in sick to work today, with sinus issues — bleah. While I am busy shoving salt water up my nose, Lucy offered to entertain you.
Here’s a video her daddy made of her, playing with the new toy he gave her for her birthday.
(There’s a video embedded there, Bloglines readers.)Thanks for all the nice comments on the photo of my pile of paper and CDs yesterday. 🙂 I won’t say anything else about it for the present, except that it won’t come to fruition for about a year, I think. These things take time. Oh, and it is not a monograph on tool use among Sumatran apes. A million years ago when I worked for this organization (long before it was computerized) we abstracted an article on tool use among Sumatran apes. Some science team received a grant to research that topic. During the time period of the study, they observed one instance of tool use: an ape broke a branch off a tree and used it to scratch his butt.That was a article that got passed around the office, lemmee tell you. Along with “The Ergonomics of Toilet Seat Sitting.”Yeah, good times.Where was I?
Here is the slightly different sock heel I was working on. It fits the foot very nicely. The increases are on the bottom of the foot instead of on the sides.
The Numma Numma Toasty sock yarn I’m using is very aptly named. Boy, is it ever numma numma! Very soft and lovely to knit up. Almost makes me forget that my face hurts.
Pass the salt water, please.
