I started reading Kathy's post and thought, I'm gonna post this one. Then I started reading the comments and started randomly commenting on other people's comments. Maybe too much mint chocolate in me, ha!
Here we go kids:
*Have you asked your kids to do something you wouldn’t do?
I have one kid, but I'm seeing the appeal of having multiple children to make multiple entertaining requests. I don't really think I ask him to do much outside of my own comfort zone except for try not to be nervous about something when I personally have to do a lot to manage my anxiety. I think he's getting wise to my shtick though.
*Do you understand: Football, Bridge, or Cricket?
I understand American and "World" Football aka Soccer. I don't really like American Football anymore, but before anyone out here yells at me, I get why you might. So don't come for my head. A good friend of mine is mad about Cricket and is constantly threatening to rope me in. I told her she will have to wait for my retirement. In the meantime though I do like to check out the Guardian ticker during international matches. I love the NON sport commentary. I think this is what the British would appropriately describe as "brilliant".
*Have you talked to your family about Organ Donation?
Yes. I am a registered organ donor. I know the husband knows. I haven't discussed it with the Kid. I assume he would know that's what I'm ok with.
*Did you knit something that you thought you might not be able to this year?
I think anything I completed this year. The Fall Knit Along socks have been a big win. It was looking bleak earlier in the year.
*I-phone or Samsung?
I-phone but I'm sick of Apple's proprietary dominance and I'm not opposed to moving away from it, but I'm still under the impression that the security for the OS and apps is more secure.
*Do you put bows or trinkets on your packages?
I'm team Araignee on this. I loathe wrapping presents. It's never crisp, my ends are always a bit ... wonky. The irony is I love wrapping paper. What? It's pretty! It's like fabric for non sewers! I haven't ribboned in a LONG time, but I like those sticker bows. You know, premade, peel the paper back and BOOM, insta jazzy package.
*Do your pets get a Holiday treat?
I have no pets, but we are known to give gifts to either neighbor pets and/or my Dad's dog, Simba because he's a funny fellow who loves to battle a squeaker.
*Do you use headphones, earbuds or nothing when you watch something on your phone, computer or tablet?
I use Earbuds with my phone. I used to use these free headphones with my computer at work (Cans as my budding film maker calls them as they go over your ears). I received them when I ordered a pair of sunglasses but those were STOLEN OFF MY DESK and yes, I'm still bitter about it in case you can't tell. TWO rules people.
- Don't lay hands on someone.
- Don't take other people's stuff. Holy hotpants what happened to common sense kids?
*If you could take a craft/knit/crochet class in January for free, what would it be?
Fair Isle, maybe learn to use a sewing machine? but really, I'd leave some oranges out for the crafting gods if they'd just give me a little more time to knit and organize.
*Have you ever made a traveling knit? (you knit part and send it on?)
No I think I'd be interested in this when I retire if I learn to manage my time better. In general it makes me nervous, this feels like I'd let people down. I can't handle that, ha!
More words and pictures soon. Knit strong my friends. I'm cheering us all on through the end of this year and many more, grateful for the best in all of us.
