I’ve been tagged again. πŸ™‚
These are the rules:
List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
Tag seven people to do the same.
Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag “whoever wants to do it”.

  1. I’m a huge control freak when it comes to driving. I get really anxious if I’m not driving, unless I’m in the back seat or in a different city.
  2. I’m petrified of spiders.
  3. I had a speech impediment as a child and had to go through speech therapy for a few years. I’m still really self-conscious about it and it tends to creep back into my speech when I’m really nervous, like when I have to speak in public or when I’m meeting a lot of new people at one time.
  4. My eyes change colors. The are usually green, but can shade to brown or yellow depending on my mood (or so I’ve been told).
  5. I really, really, really (can’t emphasize this enough) REALLY hate house cleaning.
  6. I’m not fond of chick flicks/lit, except for Jane Austen. I would much rather watch a grisly horror flick.
  7. I love my cats, but deep in my heart I am a dog person so I tend to give Corrina preferential treatment.

Ok, I tag Joanne, Mary, Denise, Anita, Ruinwen, Ruth & CJ

I’ve seen this quiz before, but don’t remember every taking it. Apparently I’m a…

What Kind of Knitter Are You?

You appear to be a Knitting Goddess. You are constantly giving and are unconcerned with reward, you simply want others to love knitting as much as you do. If someone wants to knit miles of novelty yarns, you are there for them. If someone wants to learn short row shaping, you can help. There are no taboos in knitting, only opportunities to grow. Everyone should have friend like you around if they want to learn to knit, and there’s a good chance that your passion has rubbed off on a few others.
Take this quiz!

I know I’ve been remiss on the posting, but I didn’t really have any updates for you. Luckily, I’ve been tagged for a meme by Anita from the Mystery Swap.

The Rules:Once tagged, you must link to the person who tagged you. Then post the rules before your list, and list 8 random things about yourself. At the end of the post, you must tag and link to 8 other people, visit their sites, and leave a comment letting them know they’ve been tagged.

  1. I turned 35 yesterday. Ouch.
  2. The first time I went to college I majored in Theater. I dropped out after the 1st semester. When I went back to college I majored in Psychology & minored in Philosophy, so I could be completely unemployable. I need 20 credits to graduate, but I haven’t taken classes for 6yrs.
  3. I LOVE horror movies & books. I watched my first horror movie when I was 6 and have been addicted ever since.
  4. I am clumsy. Very clumsy. I am constantly dropping things at work and have fallen down the stairs (usually sliding on my ass) many times. I also trip over my own feet.
  5. I’ve been going through infertility treatments on & off for about 8 yrs and am about to give up.
  6. I hate cleaning. Really, really hate it.
  7. My dream is to own a yarn store. I have no idea what to do to accomplish this.
  8. I am terrified of spiders.
