5 Things Occupying My Forebrain On Tuesday, May 6th

  • For the first time in decades I have to buy a pair of pyjamas. Where does one even buy such exotic items? (Ok, I can answer that myself probably, I'll check out Target this weekend.) I'm going into hospital on Monday for the overnight sleep study thing, and apparently nudism is frowned upon.
  • I get a little frisson of nerves everytime I think about the hospital stay. Not bad OMG a little bit of pee just came out nerves, but the feeling that comes from anticipating an unusual experience. Electrodes! It's so science fiction it makes my toes curl.
  • Speaking of the hospital stay, I confirmed with my healthcare fund that the little sleep-over experience is only going to cost me the $200 excess on my coverage. That's not too bad, I can live with that and it's a bit of a relief.
  • Because I am of foolish persuasion I didn't realise that I could listen to some podcasts on my work pc, using the media player. (Don't judge, 'kay?) So I've been listening to a couple of knitting podcasts, David Reidy's Sticks & String, and WonderMike and hizKNITS' fantastic Y Knit. Huzzah!
  • In a rare fit of thinking ahead, I actually cast on some knitting last night to make a Christmas gift for a friend. It's only May! Actually, I suspect there'll be a few knitted gifts made this year. I've also got an idea for an original pattern rolling around in my head. Gestating as we speak.

Be sure to take your knitting to hospital (I love typing "hospital" without an article in front of it. So un-American.) Knitting would be the perfect way to pass the time there. Don't worry about making me a brassiere for Christmas, I've decided not to become a Lady after all.

Do you really need pyjamas, though? If modesty requires, I generally just throw on a pair of gym shorts +/- a close-fitting t-shirt (so's it doesn't wrap itself around me and choke me in the night).

Peener, you've just made me revise my Christmas list.

Mel, they say "Pyjamas or Nightdress", so I still have one other option other than pyjamas. I was thinking peignoir. And a pair of clacky mules.

M-H said...

Was that clacky mules or tacky mules? (I'm picturing those ones with swansdown on the front. Pink. To match the peignoir.)

The Other Andrew said...

Tacky AND clacky!

I do know that Coles has ladies flannelette pj's on special this week... I bought a pair that are purple with pink and white stars.

irresistible.

another pair died not long ago, my very favourites - men's flannelette in red white and blue, covered in stars saying 69. why? why 69? were they being funny, ironic, saucy or...? I loved them so.


go the men's nightshirt! I dare you.

The Other Andrew said...

The search for kicky (non-ladies!) jimjams starts this weekend. After I get haircut. Yay!

Mikey (TLE) said...

Pyjamas????

Two words:

"Peter Alexander".

The current range is quite sexois. And you can buy them in stores now.
