for the greatest fool may ask more than the wisest man can answer.

I'm in the middle of a two-day long test. Speaking of high-stakes testing, it's the third and final part (spread over 3 years) of my US Medical Licensing Exam. And it's long. Today I answered 350 multiple choice questions about, well, just about anything medical is fair game. And after that, I felt a little, er, fried. So I betook myself to Border's where I had some $10.64 of "holiday" credit to spend before January 31st. . . . and, where it turns out, all the calendars are $4. Hooray for January calendar sales! I picked up my first-ever Knitting Pattern A Day Calendar (yes, not only are there no pictures, I'm also too lazy to even link today), as well as the Stich-and-Bitch page-a-day calendar. (And, lest you think it was all about me, I got the Trivial Pursuit Calendar for the beau.) All this for a total out-of-pocket cost of 17 cents, and the pleasure of sitting on the couch with my tea flipping through new knitting patterns. It was lovely. So lovely, in fact, that I'm off to dream happy knitting dreams in preparation for doing it all again tomorrow. Actual interesting blogging to resume after that.
