1. Don't try to embroider while watching a foreign film with subtitles. Bad things happen, and it's usually to the embroidery.
2. Don't embroider in bed. I seem to be missing a needle and I'm a bit frightened as to where it may have gone. Don't worry, I'm sure I'll find it - I just prefer to not find it the way I usually find needles and pins. (Remember, I am the one who sewed a pin into the side seam of my dress and I had to be rescued from it).
