Tagged for 5

Tag I'm it! Robin tagged me for the 5 things never revealed on my blog. Should be easy, it's only been 10 months. The rules are:

Get tagged by someone-did that
Write down 5 things that have never been revealed on your blog before-I will
Tag 5 others-I'll let them tag themselves OK?

5 Things that Have Never Been Revealed on My Blog Before:

1. I forget to mention things, like I cook and bake alot. Not that I'm all that or anything, I just love to do it and knew how to cook and bake since I was about 8.
I always make my own spaghetti sauce (about every 2 weeks to be exact) I can cook most any Italian or Polish dish (heritage ya know) and also cook in Chinese and Mexican. I can usually eat something in a restaurant and replicate it at home.
I especially love baked breads,cakes, pies and cookies.

2. I'm pretty much a loner (not in a weird way), but it's generally a preference. I get along great with everyone at work and everywhere else for that matter. Love my knitting group girls and family of course, I even taught classes and spoke publicly. Doesn't mean I felt the confidence I exuded.
I have few friends, but they are true friends, and I to them.

3. As much as I'm a loner, I love animals. Bri teases that I'm like Dr. Doolittle. Good thing we have a small house-there'd be all kinds of things living here. When I was 5, I found a baby sparrow that fell out of his nest, he had no feathers and was really tiny. Naturally, I named him Itty Bitty and he sung like a canary and flew to me from wherever he was when not in his house. He passed away when I was 15. Mom called it quits on me when I brought home a snake from our local creek. He was evicted immediately and returned to his home. I still can't get the vision of mom screaming from the dining room chair out of my head. hee hee Guinea Pigs are my favorite companions. When I lost my last one, Bri said trying to make me feel better, "You wouldn't cry half as much if I went". I said, through my tears, "Yes I would cry half as much."

4. I have a mean, nasty, wicked, evil bad temper. That's why I ALWAYS keep it in check. I never put a hand to either of my daughters. Don't have to, I was blessed with THAT look. mwahhhhahaha

5. To facilitate #4, I find humor in almost everything. Everything. I wouldn't laugh at a funeral or anything, humor has its time and place. I read Emily Post ya know. I also worked for a large bank for 16 years and I was "brought up" very well there. I could consider myself well written and well spoken, but I'm too lazy to do that these days and besides, I write more like I would speak to you in person. This is getting to be a #6 here.

So there they are. Exciting stuff huh?

Here's something silly for Maryse. Not too garish, but kind of goofy. These say I Rock, but it doesn't show well here. I love a contest! And, that' s not my bone on the floor. eewww

Take THAT! Fashion Police...

This is something I ordered at the end of December, before the Yarn Focus Challenge 07, I ordered this: Socks That Rock in Lucy colorway.

Hey Cara! I'm a woman now! Cara's the STR Queen. When Blue Moon Fiber Arts names a yarn after you and your man, you're star material. She's got beautiful cards on her site by the way, and I know first hand, because I received one which will be posted Sunday or Monday. These cards are gorgeous! HallCard store's got nothing on you girl!

A little knitting for Sonya and Kevin:

One or two more, then the January and February squares for Project Gracious Parcels 2007, then I'll pick a project from the UFO Resurrection 07 basket. Quite the joiner, aren't we?

That is a great 5 things. I can really relate to #2,4 & 5 especially. Like you, I was brought up right at a former job and I am thankful for that every day.

Sonya said...

Beautiful squares, Carol! That's a lovely STR colorway. I must get some.

Nora said...

Oh Carol, you crack me up!!

The STR is 2 die 4 - here's how it knits up:


Cara said...

I don't know about a rock star...yarn lover maybe? Glad you liked the cards. Thank you!

Melody said...

i LOVE those socks. You do Rock. :) and a baker too! YUMM-Y! Happy weekend!

Bridget said...

Carol, to quote you, I think we may be separated twins or something!

I have some STR in the Lucy colorway, and can't wait to start using it.

Baking - have you ever made your own Hot Cross Buns? That's one thing I'll be doing this weekend. They are yummy. (She said, having never met a baked good she didn't like ...)

Finally catching up with you. Woman you knit so fast! And it all looks so fantastic. Great job. Love the STR colorway. The squares are so nice with browns, I really like the texture in the lower right square.

Robin said...

Wow - I would love to be able to replicate things I eat out. Right now I was just looking for a Molten Chocolate Cake recipe to duplicate the one I had at Morton's a few weeks ago.

I also can relate to pretty much every one of the other items you listed!!!
