misc.

Now that I'm occasionally walking upright with the prosthesis (no crutches or wheelchair), I have found myself wanting one of those little wrist bags for carrying small knitting projects in. But I've been balking at the price.

Because MyFK is hooked on Seasoned Seaweed Snacks and Botan Rice Candy, we occasionally stop at the Japanese Dollar Store. When I'm there, I usually find something with "Engrish" on it (I'm big fan of Engrish...basically it's when other languages, primarily Japanese, get translated to English, and the translaion completely misses the boat. Better and more detailed description found here.)

Yesterday I scored.
I found little knitting bags with Engrish on them.




And only a buck-fifty.

Oh my, I'm insanely jealous over your awesome little bag. The saying is perfect, so perfect.

Also. Why is there a wheelchair symbol next to the word verification? How the heck did you do that?

Congratulations on losing the crutches! Big step! (no pun intended)

Sorry, I'm asleep; I forgot that you already got to this stage! zzzzzzz zzz zzzzz

I also confused crutches with a cane. You get to get rid of that next -- in your own time, of course.

Kitty says it's really too early to be up and that we should go back to sleep now.

I wish you "merde" all over the place at your performance Wednesday, but only since you're the one who told us that's the appropriate wish! Cheers!

What a great deal on your bag. That's great that you are making so much progress with your prosthesis.

A little moror is good in miso.
