this is my latest binge, oh my goodness. Doc and I both think we are so funny now. We keep working on new bits, cracking each other up, slapping the table. He had one at breakfast this morning about Alternative Sanitation. We worked up a whole hilarious idea about a coffee shop that only had decaf, called "Sleepy's", and we were breathless with laughing. Every single thing seems funny right now.
[edited: I had a question about how the reading + knitting thing works--basically, I sit at the kitchen table (we have comfy chairs there) with the book propped in one of these, and blaze along on the long stockinette parts of socks or sweaters, which I can do without looking at it. I learned to knit without looking when I got tired of having to decide between reading and knitting, just by practicing until I felt confident. It's one of the most useful tricks I've ever learned!]
