“THE RULES:Each player of this game starts with the ‘6 weird things about you.’ People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave a comment that says ‘you are tagged’ in their comments and tell them to read your blog.”
I got this meme from Vicki, and then had fun reading Margene's answers. It's going around like the chicken pox used to do, so as busy as everyone is during the holidays, I will let you decide for yourself if you want to join in.
1. I can't leave the house without earrings in all six of the holes pierced in my two ears, or I feel naked.
2. I can't eat certain foods, like yogurt right out of the carton, or a whole banana without feeling like I am about to gag... something about the texture. It's ok if they are mixed with other foods (frozen bananas are great in smoothies).
3. I live where there is more space around things mainly because I can sometimes feel claustrophobic.... like when driving in rush hour traffic, or when at a packed event in a building. Hey, wait, maybe that's not so wierd after all, just a strong survival instinct.
4. I always need to check and see where the exit is... see number three.
5. Although I like wine well enough, I have never really developed a "palate" for it; the sulfites in most wines will trigger asthma that is usually under control for me.
6. I refuse to watch violent or horror movies... this one goes way back to hiding behind the couch when the Wizard of Oz was on TV when I was a little girl.
There's probably a lot more, especially if you asked my kids or my husband!
I have been busy making several small things, finished up the buying and mailing and now need to finish the wrapping and cooking. Relaxing will come next week, along with some new "me" projects. I will be attempting Hidcote Garden as my "Lace-uary" project, joining together with a few others in an as-yet informal KAL. I have three possibilities to choose from in my stash. First there's the pale turquoise Merino Oro that I originally bought for this shawl, then there's the Iris Alpaca Cloud that I bought before Christmas LAST year, planning to make a EZasPi shawl, but changed my mind, and last, but not least, the natural silk that Margene sent me as a birthday gift.... hmm, I will have to make a decision soon. I am also planning to start Seda using the Cormo wool I got at Estes Park. If I can keep from being distracted by new ideas and projects, and get those two done, I would love to start on my Wild Apple Bohus cardi, leftover from last year's Christmas gift that didn't arrive until March (something about being back-ordered by not telling us it would take so long).
I will have photos of the mohair gift shawl and my Bejeweled scarf tomorrow...
