Driven to Distraction

I painted my fingernails with a deeply immodest shade of glittery red polish, and I’m finding the constant flashes of shimmery awesomeness seriously distracting.  I try to look at the stitches on my needles and am sidetracked by the shiny.  It’s possible I’m just easily distracted (um, it’s more than possible, it’s medically documented), but this is just ridiculous.  I could just take the polish off, but that simply won’t do.  Instead I’ll just have to keep it on all the time for a week or two until I get used to it.  This will be the perfect excuse for any errors in my knitting for the next few days.
