So, last week my cubicle neighbor came to work deathly ill, and just coughed continuously for the entire day Tuesday. Thank goodness she got some cough drops for Wednesday, but I believe she managed to infect half the office. It sounds like an old time cancer ward up here. I have not escaped the plague, and am coughing & sneezing whenever I don't have a cough drop or hard candy in my mouth. Ah well, into each life a little rain must fall.
How 'bout that Meryl Streep! A class act. And can someone else please carry the President-elect's phone? Just don't let him have the phone until he submits his tweet to his speechwriter for a little presidential polish. The man needs a filter! He's an embarrassment to his party. The sad part is, he'll probably decide the job is too much work, and delegate most of it to Pence. I shudder to think it.
I've been looking at Delica beads, and have narrowed down my choice for the Aeolian shawl to either transparent pale blue or light green -- for just a hint of color. I'm still looking for a good option for applying the beads, which will mean buying something for that purpose. None of my steel crochet hooks are small enough. I guess I'll try the flosser (an inexpensive option), but I really want a couple of beaders in sizes .8 mm & 1.0 mm, from a party that will not be named here. So far I've found one source, that charges $2 more for each than the inventor.
