Favorite Color Swap! Hooray!

23 07 2006

I love this idea, and I’ve been having a marvelous time reading the blogs of the other participants!
Hooray favorite color swap!

1. What are your top three favorite colors?
in no particular order- browns, soft greens, and peachpink.

2. What crafts do you really enjoy?
so far, i totally love knititng even though i’m so new at it.

3. What products do you really covet?
you mean besides that couch we just ordered? anything knitting related, probably stitch markers. other-related, one can never have too much lip gloss. on at one time, yes. total in one’s possession, no.

4. What other activities do you enjoy besides your favorite crafty things?
i love to read. i love road-tripping. swimming with my kids. i’m having a hard time coming up with anything, which is rather sad. i guess i work too much, and this summer my free time has been devoted to the kids’ baseball/swim team/karate schedule. yikes. i need a life….

5. Is there anything you collect?
lanterns. books. shakespeare-related things. invader zim things! i love invader zim. particularly gir.

6. What is your zodiac sign and/or Chinese zodiac symbol?
i’m a cancer born in the year of the tiger. we have a joke in my family about the years we’re all born in: the tiger, the rat, the silly goose, the pain in the booty….

7.What are your favorite…

coffee! gardenia. chocolate!

…types of music and/or bands?
music- imogen heap, depeche mode, the killers, simon and garfunkle, muse.

shakespeare, of course. barbara kingsolver. david sedaris, sarah vowell.

my kids.

…places to shop?
oooh. well, what am i buying? that is the real question. but i will always go to target.

before i moved to this forsaken wasteland, i loved spring and fall. here, though, we have only one season. actually two. hot and unbelievably hot.

…yarn/fabric/paper/other craft supplies?
yarn, i don’t know that i have a favorite. lately i’ve been falling in love with wool in anticipation of felting things. but i love the yarn i bought for way too much money, it’s the blue/green you see below in another blog entry. at some point i do plan on having a go at the perdita pattern, so my favorite will be whatever yarn is necessary for that.

…candies or goodies?
chocolate! oh i love chocolate. and chocolate covered gummi bears or coffee beans. mmmm….

8. Do you have any wish lists?
not really, nothing besides winning the lottery, a smaller butt, world peace…

9. Are you allergic to anything?
dirty dishes. i can’t go anywhere near them! 😉

10. Do you have any pets? What are they?
i do not have pets. sometimes i think i want to have a smallish dog, but then i realize that i don’t. anything that can’t clean up its own poo is best left with another person. unless it’s a baby someone wants me to babysit, and then the poo rule obviously doesn’t apply.

11. Please include anything else you would like your secret pal to know about you- anything that would be helpful in finding you little gifts that you will really enjoy.
truthfully, i’m so tickled by surprises, it could be a pencil eraser and i’d be touched! (but i already have a few, so ….. maybe not.)

and there we have it!
