My Idol

I just have to say congratulations to Carrie Underwood for doing an outstanding job during American Idol. Bo Bice had a very good season as well. I wish them both best of luck in their careers.

Does this post make me a geek?

So I spent the last 2 days thinking I had Appendicitis. Now I think that I'm just fine. I had a temperature of 101.6 with severe lower abdominal pains. A nurse that I work with checked me out yesterday and suggested I go the ER. I called my on-call doctor and she suggested the same. However, like a bad patient, I didn't go. A few hours later my pain and temperature decreased. (Yay!) Today I just had mild stomach tenderness and NO fever. Whatever it was thank goodness that It's gone...

The otherday James won tickets on NPR to go see the YellowJackets This evening James and I headed out to Rome (NY) to see them.
They were outstanding!
I haven't been to hear a Jazz Quartet in some time. It makes me think about how much I miss playing my saxophone.
The opening band, however, was the Rome YMCA Jazz Band I guess they were good for their ages, but honestly I would not have felt bad if I missed them. Sorry guys (and 1 gal).

Glad to do nothing day...

For the first time in who knows how long, I slept in until 1015am. Can I tell you how GREAT that feels? To actually wake up to NO alarm clock... What a great concept!

My goal for today was to do nothing. Hooray for achievement!!!

I went to the Knitting Meetup at Wegmans. I'm kind of disappointed that there were only 4 of us. I understand things come up, but I still have yet to meet 1/2 of these knitters! COME TO THE MEETINGS!!! I stayed there for 3 hours and worked on my Magic Stripe Socks.

Er, well, sock.

I do have to mention that I am in LOVE with Wegmans' coffee cake muffins. Soooo Yummy.

James and I went to John and Liz's tonight for some food. We had paella- it's a rice dish with chicken, sausage,
roasted red peppers, peas, and saffron. It did have mussels in it though.... they really creep me out. Liz and I took a stroll over to ACMoore before dinner. I bought some Gedifra Fashion Trend Color yarn in a nice Navy Blue to start the Stitch n'Bitch Sparkle Hat (minus the sparkles).

The yarn is WONDERFUL. I also bought another pair of dpn's- Clover, size 10 1/2. Thanks goodness for coupons! I really need to start knitting more.

For some reason it's 2:10am and I'm still awake. I think I need to go to bed. I have a date at the gym at 9am for a class. Let's see if I can get my butt up and out of bed!
