NYC say wha?

So I finished another Scarf. I really love this color.. It's Malabrigo's Vermillion.. It's a tone on tone.. Dark Red with a lighter red tone.. NO PINK...
My back is on the mend.. I've been doing nothing but popping pills and laying flat for the last 2 weeks or so. I couldn't even knit... I threw my back out by taking polish of me toes!!! WTH? So when doctors state that the reason why I have back issues is due to weak abdominal muscles.. BULL SHIT!... Fact is.. I have a bad back... and will always just get pedicures. period

Any how... 

This past week, I had a business trip to NYC.. Now, I had my trip all planned.. Wednesday, I would leave class at the normal time 4pm... get to Tender Buttons, then onto Purl... OK.. so my class didn't get out til after 5 , took me 15 min to find a cab, then traffic and $$ later.. I got to TenderButtons late and they closed early.. onto Purl.. and I missed that too!.. I was so upset.. went back to my hotel and sulked..

Couple of tidbits from my trip.. My instructor chewed food with his mouth open.. I don't mean ajar.. I mean lip smacking open with every chew... I could hear this from 15 feet away... I had to leave the room...
Then the next day, my lab partner. During lecture, slowly rips about 1/4 page out of training manual, slowly crumbles it up and EATS it... Chews on it for about 20 min and then it was gone... Once I picked myself up off the floor I just stared and stared some more......
I just couldn't help myself... 

Have a good week.. Mine can only go up from here!

How disappointing missing out on the shops. The scarf came out beautiful. Hope your back is feeling better!

I didn't know you were injured or traveling or in class! I'm so sorry about the injury and about missing your stores! What a bummer! Did the lab partner explain why he/she ate the piece of paper? (I made the ruffles in the Malabrigo that has pink in it's red... it ended up looking a little to tie-dye-y for the recipient's taste...) Maybe I'll go see if they have vermillion left - yours looks great!

Okay, so since I got the daily play-by-play, I can honestly say that I'm still flabbergasted about the paper-eating incident more than any of the other horrible things that occurred. Just think, now you're back and we can just complain about our normal coworkers. We'll have to plan a trek to TB and Purl.
