Bits and bobs or odds and ends, whatever this post is all over the place...

First of all, I know you've all been biting your nails and pulling your hair out with worry over the state of my lady bits and my lack of gynaecologist visiting and pap smearing. But yesterday, I idly chatted about how tough the job market is right now while my gyno used the speculum (holy scary speculum). And if that wasn't awkward enough she was even like " what's this thing" and pointed to a red angry lump on my bum which happens to be another Alaska sized bug bite on my ass. What a good moment...

So stop your nail biting. Put down the stress ball. We're all going to be ok.

Also, I've been getting around the blogosphere lately (which if you recall is part of my life list). I participated in World Nutella Day, I am beginning operation Anonymous Blog Swap, and I became a big sister.

I recently sent my little sister a little care package that contained these.

AND, I also made a pair but have not mailed them because I am a slacker to my bestest real life friend who just started a blog. So Anne, expect some fingerless gloves in the mail...sometime.

What's new with you, my bitches?


  1. I refuse to try Nutella on the grounds that I'm sure I'll be absolutely wild for it.

  2. Good for you for going. It has to be done. I'm a fine one to talk though as I have just cancelled my follow up hospital appointment from all that scary stuff back in September. But quite frankly, my fanny has only just got back to normal and I don't fancy them poking around down there again when I can instead spend a fun and boozy day with the girls .....

  3. how brave you are for posting about a gyno appt on the internet lol...and extra kuddos for letting us all know about the bug bite on your ass :p

    Nothing new over's cold, grey and rainy in Paris and I could use a holiday somewhere warm! (soon enough...)

    P.S Mmmmm Nutella...

  4. Sounds like you can handle the lady bit examination just fine. I cannot say the same for myself. I hate it. Just be careful of those bugs ;)

  5. Those gloves you sent are so pretty:) kisses, my dear

    Ps: I’m hosting a stunning Ruche GIVEAWAY today! Hope you’ll join in :)

  6. Your gyno story is too funny!
    PS I'm super jealous you know how to knit fingerless gloves!

  7. I was definitely concerned about your lady bits. Thanks for the peace of mind.

    And I'm with everyone else who digs those gloves, they look pretty awesome. Why don't you sell that stuff?

  8. tee hee! glad to hear you're taking care of yourself and all your lady bits. also, the bugs in australia are a pretty big fear of mine. i'm sure most americans don't think much about it, but the mister's family is from there and we'll probably move there at some point in the future. yikes!

  9. Anne - I miss you!

    Tattytiara - Oh, try it! spoil yourself.

    Selina - I say, that's fair enough!

    Crystal - Aw, I am so excited for you about your holiday!

    Krysten - Um, YES.

    Sara - Well, to be fair, I had nightmares about it the night before it happened.

    Diana - Aw, thank you!

    Teacher Girl - Thanks!

    Cole - they were super easy!

    Eric - I never thought anyone would buy them?

    Kim - Squee, yay!!! you'll move to Australia some day :) I wouldn't worry too much about the bugs, I think my body is a just a bit temperamental at the moment. I've never seen anything poisonous in Melbourne.

  10. There was a world nutella day?


    Now I decree it is your job to give me the heads up on these things woman!

  11. Glad everything went OK at the appointment! I hate those!
