Why no show and tell

Sorry fellow Hufflepuffers. My swap pal knows who I am and I didn't want to spoil any surprise for her so I didn't post my progress. Sorry to let down the House by not earning them 5 points!

I've been tagged!

I've been tagged by my coffee swap partner, pheelya! Let's play!

The Rules: Each person tagged gives seven random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write in their blogs seven 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 need to read your blog.

1. I did synchronized swimming for almost eight years as a kid. I was pretty good too. Ironically, I was really allergic to chlorine which caused my feet to itch so bad that I would practically scratch them raw each night after practice. Little did I know synchronized would become an olympic sport and almost cool in a retro kind of way. If only I had stuck with it I could have been in a red hot chili peppers video!

2. I was notoriously naughty as a small child. Neighbors still talk about how bad I was. I prefer to think I was just curious, strongwilled and misunderstood. Ok and maybe a little angry.

3. In contrast, I was the Canton McKinley Highschool's football homecoming queen in '93.

4. I became engaged to my highschool sweetheart when I was only 19 years old.

5. I went to work in Yellowstone National Park as a maid one summer during college. There, I fell in love with the West forever, fell in love with a wonderful hippie boy for a year or so and broke up with said highschool sweetheart, and got to pick up the dirty laundry of Mario Van Peeples, my closest celebrity-ish encounter to date. Oh wait, I met the members of Rusted Root around the same time too.

6. Ended up marrying that highschool not-so-sweet heart at 22, had a baby with him at 23, and got divorced at 26. I've since married the best man in the world for me, a quirky cross between Charles Ingalls and Vincent Price. We've had two more babies and are currently living happily ever after....

7. Hmm, last one. I need something very random and wierd. Got it! I hate the feel of raw, unfinished wood. It gives me chills in my teeth the way others would get from nails down a chalkboard. I can't touch wooden spoons without wrapping something around the handles. I also hate the feel of the kind of paper in trade paperbacks or newsprint. I have to use two bookmarks to hold the book open so I don't have to touch it!

I just tagged: Catherine, KTknits, AuntGeorge,MissBeeHaven, Kitchenwitch

finally a finished bit of knitting

I finished some dishcloths for my mom for mother's day. As soon as I learn how to download the pictures from the camera to the computer I'll post them. It seems like I haven't much knitting lately so it's nice to get something done. Now to work on my Hogwart socks for my hufflepuff pal!
