  How I spent my weekend Football and drugs.

If the last few posts seem all over the place, it's because they are.

1) I AM SICK AGAIN!!!! Went to the doc and I have ick. Lots of ICK. My staff says I have rabies. The official word is bronchitis and strep with its origins in an inane flu bug which was picked up somewhere between NJ and Delaware. Which John had first, then passed on to me. Go figure, his ass is almost better and I'm still gagging on alien goo.

2) Redskins ate it yesterday and I am sad. Angel, however is gloating b/c she's still mad that Tampa Bay got put out by the Skins.

3) Steelers didn't so I'm a little happier. (John is the Steelerhead around here, remember?)

I was looking at my Rx package and yeah, my insurance has paid for generic drugs...but it doesn't matter, because they work just fine and I can afford them. But what caught my eye was that this generic was manufactured by a company called Teva Pharmaceuticals, based in Jerusalem, Israel. Hmmm. So I went online to click-click-click and check this out and found out that 6 degrees of separation happens in weird ways.

Teva Pharmaceuticals is the distributor for Copaxone who is the sponsor for Kelly Sutton from the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. Kelly lives about 12 miles from me and my friends Jake & Jason (who also race in NASCAR) used to pit crew for them a few years back.

So I'm supposed to stay home til Tuesday according to the doc. Yeah, but we both know that isn't going to happen. I have inventory tomorrow. Tons of work to still catch up on from being out of town for a week. General Monday crap ... *sigh*

Why can't I figure out a way to be able to knit and do crafty stuff for a living?

The good news is that I've finished my Bobblelicious and I love it. LOVE IT.

The bad news is that... I'm still sick.

And I should be going to bed now.

Oh, one last thought before I signoff. I had purchased a pattern from Jenna Adorno's website last month - her really pretty Hopeful pattern, and paid with Paypal. According to the instructions I had received after paying is that I would get a download link to the pattern to save in a pdf within 30 mins of payment. Well, I never received it, and I had emailed Jenna 3 times over the last month or so, with no response back. Now here's the touchy part - PayPal rules say that a dispute claim must be filed within 45 days of the original transaction in order to be investigated by them & for recourse. I am juuuuust within that 45-day frame, so I filed my claim today. But now I feel bad, because A) the $5 charge for the pattern is going to be donated to a cancer research fund in honor of Jenna's partner and B) Jenna seems to come across as a good soul - why would she want to hijack my 5 bucks? Do I really want to get all hyped about a charity pattern?

Then the other side of my arguement is: Why couldn't she at least respond to my emails? I understand that I am only a little bitty nobody knitter fan and why would she take time out her busy schedule for me, but now it is the principle.

I am so totally in support of cancer research, believe me. (those of you who know me IRL know my family history) And I love Jenna's pattern designs and have been a fan for years.
I just don't want her or other people to think I am petty and snide, because I am not. Really!
Jenna, if you happen to have actually read my email and saw the URL for my blog in my signature and are reading this, then I hope you can understand where I am coming from.
I hope to hear back from you (in a friendly way, of course) in response to any one of my 3 emails, if not from PayPal.
