MAIL CALL! And one Hell of a Ramble.

#### Here's the mail, it never fails!
### It makes me want to wag my tail!
## When it comes I want to wail...  
# Mail!!!

<br>

<center>*Yes, I just sang a song from Blues Clues. No, I will not apologize for it.*</center>
---

<br>

Also, I have completely distracted myself from the original reason for the post. Did you know that Steve Burns (Steve from Blue Clues) started a band?

He left the children's television show when he started getting a bit old, thought he couldn't make a future of being a kid's show host, and also... *he was losing his hair*. 

And then there was Joe that took over. 

<br>

---
# Fuck you, Joe. You aren't Blue's real dad.

---

<br>

**ANYWAY.**

Where was I? 

Oh, yeah. Mail! 

So when I left for Australia, I laid out everything out that I was going to bring with me as fast as I could. I picked out all the things that seemed to have survived the mold. (My yarn stash... did not.) 

Also, while I have you here, hot tip:


## Never- ever- ever- NEVER... put your furniture flush against your walls. 

<br>

*If you have a leak in your walls, you will not know until it spreads past said furniture. And by then, it is too late.*  

Dammit. I got sidetracked again. I might... have had a little too much coffee this morning.

As I was saying before my brain so rudely interrupted me: 

I remembered to pack my bed canopy. Hair dye. Two (WHY TWO???!!) toothbrushes. Pom pom cat ears (I don't know, man). A full-size drone. A desktop PC. Lasers. A microscope. But what never made it into my bags?

### You guessed it. 

Not a single piece of my crafting supplies. 

Wait, I take that back.

<center>*Behold. My Vegemite needle minder and sole needle I remembered to toss in.*</center>

---

Embroidery thread? NAH. 

Yarn? NOPE.

A single piece of fabric? No fucking way. 

My sweater with a swearing kangaroo untangling Christmas lights that has *ACTUAL FUNCTIONAL LIGHTS IN IT THAT I BOUGHT SPECIFICALLY FOR WINTER IN AUSTRALIA*? Forgot that, too.

So now I am rebuilding my craft stash from nothing. Which is exciting, really. And I will purchase things that I will actually use since everything here is so bloody expensive. No longer will I hoard floss and yarn thinking "maybe someday I will make something with this". I actually will have to plan projects. 

### God help me. 

<br>

So my first purchase was knitting needles off ebay. Did you know ebay is still a thing? It is still a thing. And is way more affordable than Amazon is over here. Also, cheaper than the craft stores that want $25 for one set of needles. $10 AUD, free shipping, and a buy now button has gotten me EIGHTEEN PAIRS. 

And in sizes I will actually use in circulars. First up? @sammosk's blanket I never finished. Maybe I will even finish it before winter ends over here.

# Welp. This is a shitshow of a post. 

### Cold medicine + five cups of coffee = whatever the hell this turned into. 

#### But if you made it this far I shall now reward you:

<center>*Enjoy a song by Steve Burns! Not as catchy as the songs from Blue's Clues, but I still like it.*</center>

Okay, story time. The first time I had vegemite @sammosk didn't tell me what to do. He sat back, smirking, while I spread it on a piece of toast like peanut butter. 
We were on an overnight train and it was for breakfast. 
The only thing the entire car heard was some crazy American girl screaming "**OH GOD! IT TASTES LIKE AQUAMAN'S BALLS!**"

Ok... cold medicine and coffee seems to have interesting side effects :-DD (But I hope you get well soon) And these mould on furniture problem I also had... someone had hammered unknowingly a nail into a pipe in the wall and for months water seeped into a wooden wardrobe 😱😱😱
But moulding yarn - a horrible image, I hope you will never have this problem again.
So, at least I wish you joy with your knew knitting needles and I am looking forward to the things (perhaps the blanket) you will make with them.
