Revenge of the Sinuses

I often have a light 'cold' due to pollen and dander allergies.  Anyone who has more than one cat (check) and lives around green things (check) will occasionally come down with something that is uncomfortable but noncommunicable.

I am actually ill.  It's been a while since I was this ill, and it reminds me of how good I normally have it.

I won't be updating a lot, but I did want to stop by and let folks know I'm 1 not dead, 2 not knitting at the moment (don't want to transmit ick via lovingly knit garments), and 3 that I've got a surprisingly good product review to put up shortly for something I expected to feel ambivalent about.

Since I'm probably not making sense, I'll leave it there.

Stay warm, stay well, and happy knitting.

Noro Virus, who thought that name was a good idea?

So, this weekend I saw a friend that we haven't seen in months.  All was going well until he mentioned that he'd recently (the previous week) had the Noro Virus.

My thoughts went something like this:
Wait, this Noro Virus?

Jared Flood's Noro Striped Scarf. Photo & finished work also JF.
Stephen West's daybreak.  Photo & finished work also SW.
Hmm he's a dude, he wouldn't be thinking THIS Noro Virus would he?

Tina Whitmore's Lanesplitter Skirt.  Work and photo TW.
No, he meant THIS Norovirus:'s norovirus explanation.
Looks like someone is getting THESE PUPPIES for christmas this year.
