In the interest of fairness

I’m sure you’re all sick to death of my blathering on and on about Walgreen’s, but in the interest of fairness, I feel I should present the conclusion to the tale.  Thursday I emailed the University benefits office with a brief description of what happened.  Yes, it was brief.  No, really.

Friday the benefits contact from Walgreen’s phoned me, apologized profusely, assured me that my experience was not typical, offered to be my personal contact point should I wish to place any future orders, and offered to credit my account.  I said I didn’t think I would be ordering from them again in the future, but if they could reimburse me for the money I had spent I would appreciate it, and thanked her.

So that’s that.  It’s good to know one person there understands customer service.

Enough of that.  So how about some knitting pictures?  I’m making good progress on my Hypotenuse scarf.  It almost reaches from the top of a dining room chair to the floor.

Or in more meaningful terms, it’s long enough to wrap around my head, but not long enough to stay there yet without me holding it there.

Scarf around my head

Aaaaugh!  Leaves are growing out of my head!  Oh no!  Oh…wait…  That’s just my roommate Planty standing behind me.  Right.  Never mind.

It won’t be long till it’s time to start decreasing for the toe on my second crocus sock.

And since I’m an admitted postal geek, former stamp collector, and comics aficionado, I had to share Kim White’s cartoons with you.  Kim draws cartoons on envelopes, incorporating stamps into the drawings.  They’re really fun!

And I finally managed to get a photo of my little chipmunk neighbor.


What a cutie.  Though it looks like it’s not easy being a chipmunk if you take a close look at that ear.  Ouch.

Right.  It’s time for me to have lunch and do some more dyeing.  I hope my hiccups go away…

    Um, yeah. You broke one of the cardinal rules of knit blogging. You didn’t tell us what that scrumptious yarn was. Is that handspun and/or handdyed that you’re using for the hypotenuse? I’m assuming that the sock yarn is your hand-dyed. It’s very nice.
