Dancing Robots Make me Happy

I stayed home from knitting tonight, and although I missed the knitting company, I'm glad I stayed in.

Last night was quite sleepless, so today I was in a zombie-like state. Even though I felt better on the bus ride home and convinced myself that I should continue on to knitting, I scared myself when I looked in the mirror and saw that I looked like death warmed over. Seriously, I looked at myself and exclaimed, holy shit! So I stayed home.

Despite the tiredness, this has been a good evening....I did some cleaning chores that had been annoying me (like dusting the fan in the bedroom - I hate dusty fans) and I had many comfort foods. These foods were a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (especially tasty on sprouted flourless whole wheat berry bread), ginger tea (the real kind made by simmering sliced ginger root), and popcorn topped with nutritional yeast and cayenne pepper.

I also knitted a tiny bit on the duster - doing a bit of finishing around the buttonholes and weaving in some ends. I read up on attaching sleeves, contemplated this activity, and then emailed Rebecca-who-loves-seaming and basically said, what the heck?

I understand how to attach the top part of the sleeve to the shoulder, but I don't understand how to finish out the rest of the armhole opening. None of the tutorials I found elaborated on this tiny little detail.

OH YEAH....the title of this post!

I also watched some of the American ballroom dancing championships that PBS has been showing and re-showing lately. Tonight's line-up included the Latin Dancing section, which was FANTASTIC. The couple who won the show dance were dressed as transformers, and they did this crazy robot-transformer-cha-cha number. It was freaking amazing.

Oh yeah, I've seen that Robot Dance to Cha-Cha. It's awesome :-)
Reading your post explained why you didn't show up for class last night... we were wondering. Rebecca and I started on the knitalong project. I'm excited about the chicken and the egg. Hope you are feeling better today.
