I'm a Sheep

I bet you already knew that. I was tagged by Faith so I feel it’s my duty to give the public what they want. Everybody’s doing it, so I’ma doing it too!

1. Each player starts with 8 random facts about themselves.
2. People who are tagged write a blog post about their 8 random things and post the rules.
3. At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and post their names.
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment and tell them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

1. I am obsessed with the color green. No really. I get all giddy when I see the color. I wore green so much in college that my friends told me it seemed like I never changed my clothes (I in fact did change my clothes everyday, thankyouverymuch)

2. When I was young, I had dreams of performing with the Dance Theater of Harlem. I did join a dance company during high school but I started too late and lacked the dedication to really pursue a career. I also danced with the first class of the Fieldston Young Dancemakers company. I still have my tap and pointe shoes lingering somewhere in the back of my closet.

3. Although I’m a native New Yorka, I have lived in Rhode Island and Texas at some time or another.

4. I graduated with a BS in Accounting from a culinary school (Go J-Dub!)

5. I might deny it later, but one of my favorite shows is Degrassi: The Next Generation. I grew up watching the original on PBS and I just tuned in originally out of curiosity. They’re still covering those hard to face realities. ( I like Beyond the Break too)

6. I’m a big pansey when it comes to movies. I cry at the drop of a hat. I still cry at that part in Dumbo when his mothers trunk is hanging out the cage and she’s swinging him and singing….Oh my goodness, I’m getting all choked up just thinking about it.

7. My boyfriend says I’m bossy even though I don’t think I am. I just told him that things would be a lot easier if he just did things the way that I want them done.

8. I love wearing mismatched socks. I may bypass this rule for handknit socks but most of the time, my handknit socks turn out fraternal so no worries. Sometimes I'll wear matching socks to appease my family and friends. Usually on my birthday, but the other 364 days, my socks do not match and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I’m not going to tag anyone for this meme but feel free to post it on your blog if you wanna. Just let me know in the comments so I can go check it out.

On Knitting

I have been working on my socks and here’s a progress shot.

Actually, I’ve done a bit more than what’s pictured. I was trying to finish by tomorrow but this tonsillitis slowed me down a bit. They still won’t take them out no matter how much I beg and plead. I knew I was gonna get sick because it only happens when I have fibery events to go to. I was supposed to head up to Webs for their tent sale but you guessed it. My tonsils had other ideas. I’m in such a rush to finish these socks because I want them done before my next Spunky club fiber comes in. I just turned this into a personal contest for no apparent reason, just because. I think it may show up some time next week so I’m knitting in hyperdrive right now. I’ll let you know if I made the deadline.

Dude, how have I never heard about the Webs' tent sale? Don't let me miss this next year!

I love Degrassi Next Gen, I occasionally rent the old ones too, cause Degrassi, it goes there;)

I can't watch Dumbo at all. I start crying at that scene and I never really stop. Its too devastating...

LaBean said...

YOu watched Degrassi too? I only really cared for the Junior high version. The High School was ok.. but after that.. I don't know..

Maybe it's time for a change in health insurance? Most doctors I know would have taken them out by now, especially since you're an adult.. I just don't get it.
Hope you feel better soon.

I like the socks. They are the perfect balance between matching because of the pattern, and not matching because of the color variations. So, I know you love them already. So.... are they finished yet? I am still on Sock number 1. I got sidetracked, teaching my cousin how to knit from scratch.

Your socks look great - sorry about missing Webs!

Long time no see. Your socks are fab!

Congrats on your Vicky :) I LOVE mine. And no, buyers of second wheels don't get rid of their first wheel. What we do is get a third one, heh.

Where do you knit on Tuesdays? I need to find me a regular knitta group.

"that part in Dumbo when his mothers trunk is hanging out the cage and she’s swinging him and singing"

Now THIS blog I like. It is inspiring, pretty to look at, and thus far I see no profanity (who needs it; all I wanna do is knit/crochet)!

Thank YOU, HP. I put a link from mine to yours.

Keep on keepin' on.
