my purse

Catie tagged me to show a picture of my purse contents. So here ya go:

I was going to say complete and unaltered but I got to looking at my picture and decided a few things (like my drivers license info) needed to be blurred out but other than that it’s all there. No cropping – purse dumped and spread out for better picture taking.

The contents are (in no particular order): 2 pens, sharpie, spare keys, earrings, 2 darning needles, 2 mints, paperclip, aleve, wallet, bobby pins, palm, avalanche tickets and schedule, hair band, tic tacs, tape measure, motion sick pills/herbs, fortune from fortune cookie, face and remote for sirius radio in knitted holder, lighter, cell phone holder and eye drops.

For the record, no, I don’t smoke but (as I learned from my father) you never know when a lighter will come in handy.

I think Catie tagged most everyone I would but if you want to play along, please do and please let me know!

OH, I also went by my cousin’s today to give her the hat and fingerless mitts I made for her graduation and she loved them.

Knitting Guru?

What Kind of Knitter Are You?

You appear to be a Knitting Guru. You love knitting and do it all the time. While finishing a piece is the plan, you still love the process, and can’t imagine a day going by without giving some time to your yarn. Packing for vacation involves leaving ample space for the stash and supplies. It can be hard to tell where the yarn ends and you begin.

After reading the rest of the options, it is the one that best fits me.

the Golden Compass

Click on the picture to answer 5 quick questions to see if this really is my daemon or not.

I got this from Robin. (and now I really want to see the movie too and read the book)


Robin tagged me to list 7 random facts about myself so here goes:

Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write in their blogs the 7 facts, as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag seven others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and to read your blog. Here are my facts:

1. I hate mushrooms with a passion. It’s as much their texture as the taste and I’m not above (discreetly) picking them out of food.

2. I’m thinking about killing a patch of poison ivy at the bottom of my stoop and pulling them up just so I can plant some flowers. That will probably not live because the spot gets no sun and I’ll forget to water them.

3. Even before I learned how to knit, it bothered me when crocheters would put down knitters because they thought that knitters thought they were better than crocheters. I’ve never run into a knitter who thought they were better than crocheters.

4. I love having ink pens and have so many (both at home and at work) that they dry up before I can use them.

5. I’m glad that my parents aren’t still married because I love my step parents very much and just can’t imagine my life without them in it.

6. I don’t drink coffee except when I’m really cold and there’s no alternative (like camping).

7. I love getting Christmas cards.

As for the 7 people to tag, I have NO idea so if you want to play along, by all means do.
