Re-writing Your Own History

Real Quick:

Ever been tempted to go back & edit the heck out of your old blog posts?  Erase all those silly beginner mistakes so some poor hapless (now) beginner doesn't stare into your old pitfalls & think it's a brilliant idea to jump right in?

Yeah... but just coming off chemo, recovering from head trauma & re-discovering the joy of normal hormone levels is probably not the best time to do this. 
Who knows what heinous mistakes will be typed out for all to see & how much worse it would be than the 3:00 a.m. ramblings of a newbee costumer? 

In other news, I'm feeling much better, the world has stopped spinning (mostly) and I'm slowly getting back to work & starting to socialize again.  I've got about enough energy to take me from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. before I crap out on sewing, and that's slow with much cursing & ripping out & face/palm actions.  Every time I think I'm ready to start in on Important Orders I make some bone-headed mistake that tells me I'd better not cut that customer's fabric right now.  To top it all off, I do forget my head, even though it IS attached.  But it is much, much better than it was.  We aren't done with Medical Crap, but the worst is basically over.

OK, so because this should have something to do with a relevant topic, I was picking poke berries for dye today.  One of my bone-headed friends stopped over (he has no legit medical "brain-not-working" excuse for this question - NONE).
Just as an FYI, the 1/2 gallon milk carton really does have a skull & cross bones on it, with "POISON! DO NOT EAT" written all over it.  You can't possibly miss it.  I made sure.

My friend calls it "Chemo brain."

I know a lot of people now editing their facebook histories because things they said 5 years ago doesn't seem as funny anymore.

Yup. Chemo Brain is a nasty side-effect. It really messes with your head, and not just memories - emotions too. Somebody forgot to mention that.

Anyway, I've been reliably informed by a friend who "tried one once" that poke berries "are sour and really bitter." She's obviously still alive.
