Wow. I missed my two year blogiversary and 300th post. I'm doing well this year. On the plus side, Grilltech's (is it 20 inches yet?) Sweater is coming along. I've got about ten inches done, give or take.
I knit in meetings openly. Since my hands are busy, I can pay attention to the speaker(s). Instead of how uncomfortable the chairs are, why is he droning on and on, can't he shut-up already? Type of things. About a year ago, I was told I couldn't knit at my desk. Some people threw a tizzy over the whole thing. I now have a new boss, who knows I pay attention and produce. (Which really is the bottom line.)
A me-me I stole from Emicat:
1. If you could change your name what would it be? My alternate name is Saren. I think it's beautiful and at times I think I'm beautiful as well or so Grilltech says I am. Remember the (bleeping) nursery rhyme Jack and Jill? I can tell you pretty much any version of it. I loathe it with the brilliance of a thousand suns.
2. Describe a time you've gone overboard. Not going there.
3. What are you presently wearing? Slip on shoes, hand made socks, dress pants (dark purple), 3/4th sleeved V-neck shirt (mauve), and my jacket. It's cold in here.
4. Who can you never please? I've given up trying to please others, and I'm such a disappointment to myself at times. I'd have to say: myself. There are some area's I excel: knitting, cooking, and problem solving. There are some areas that I fall down: cleaning, exercising, and follow through sometimes.
5. What do you wait for? The end of projects. The long haul of the body on sweaters really makes me crazy at times. Beer: Meade and Lambic are two of the longer fermenting drinks, they can take up to a year. But they are worth the wait.
6. How did you learn about the birds and the bees? I learned out back of a skating rink with a guy who was five years older then me. We didn’t go all the way, but it was close. Then I learned more in 9th grade biology.
7. Is it easy to be you? You bet. I wouldn't want to be me if it was hard. It's not always easy living with me, but Grilltech manages. (I think it's the socks and sweaters.)
