Apparently, I'm it. I got triple-tagged by Ann, Kris, and 5elementknitr to do the 7 or 8 Random Things thing. Triple-tagged? How is that even possible? Conspiracy, I say! Y'all must know how terrible of a sharer I am. When I was notified of the first tag, I was already conspiring on how to get out of it. Then the second and third came. Clearly, I am just going to have to do some sharing.
It isn't clear to me whether I am supposed to share 7 or 8 random things about myself, and if I'm tagged thrice, do I have to share 21 or 24 random things? I'm going to stick with the least amount of sharing possible and go with 7. So, 7 random things about myself:
1 :: I am a huge slob. I leave piles of my stuff laying around everywhere. Books, papers, knitting, shoes. My worst habit is the anomaly known as "Clothes Mountain," a big pile of discarded clothes (not necessarily dirty, just discarded) next to my bed. It drives M crazy. There is nothing feng shui about my slobbery.
2 :: My favorite part of speech is the adverb. In my humble opinion, describing the ways things are done is by far more fun than describing things themselves.
3 :: I'm a vegetarian. And while I avoid confrontations about vegetarianism and rarely feel compunction to spend any amount of time trying to convince others to be one, I cringe when I hear, "I'm a vegetarian. I mean, I eat chicken on occasion, but only if it is free range."
4 :: Sarcasm makes my world go 'round.
5 :: I have a strong aversion to white walls and white socks. And, really, most everything white. (I am sensing Nora cringing).
6 :: I am a happy heathen, as well. If I were to believe in a god, it would be Camus.
7 :: I am supremely indecisive. I can't make a decision to save my life. It took every bit of decisiveness I have in me to choose what 7 things I'd reveal about myself, the whole time asking M, "What are 7 things about myself? What should I write about myself? Do YOU know 7 good things for me to say about myself? 7 things? Do you have any ideas?"
Speaking of being tagged, I was recently tagged (see it there, in the above photo?) in another way. A most fabulous way. The fantastically talented Pamela Wynne agreed to swap soap for a beautiful handmade blouse of my fabric choice. And I've never properly thanked her for this great swap and beautiful, beautiful blouse.
So thank you, Pam. I love the blouse. And I promise I'll get some modeled, action shots of it soon. And should you need any more soapy goodness, you know where I'm at.
And now I'm supposed to tag 7 other people? I say that if you want to share, you should share, and consider yourself tagged. But there are 7 people that I would like to know 7 random things about, so if I had to suffer, so do they: Brooke, Beth, iSeL, Brenda, Christy, Specs, and Stacy, prepare to share. Or to send me some yarn. Your choice.
