Saturday Fun

Hmmmm....what arrived this time?

The lovely, lovely Spina di Pesce kit from Yarnissima. Yum! I got mine just in the nick of time as they appear to be gone now. Who knows...they might resurface again!!

The always delightful Rani tagged me for a 7-fact declaration....

Rules are: 1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Here goes:

1. I have a Ph.D. in Molecular Microbiology and Immunology and am currently working in a multiple sclerosis research laboratory....where most everyone is/has been a knitter.

2. I don't like camping. At all.

3. I knit in the car...when I'm driving...less than 5 mph.

4. I was a BIG Emerson, Lake and Palmer fan while in college...Please spare me and don't do the math! They were my first live concert! Tres cool!

5. I don't like driving over bridges or flying over water.

6. I don't like my feet touched...it makes getting that once a year pedicure very precarious for the pedicurist!! I tend to kick alot!!! :) She giggles and tells me I need to come in more often to become desensitized!!! Right!

7. I had over 20,000 pieces of email archived at work. I was able to remove about 5,000 posts before the big migration to another email server/system/somethingoranother like that. I'm stymied on the remaining ~15,000 pieces. They recommend only having 5,000 in your archive. I'm doomed.

That took a lot out of me to come up with those 7 facts...I'm not sure I can tag 7 people, so I will tag these fine folks to tell us a bit about themselves:

Adam at Knitguy
Carrie at We Do Not Have a Knitting Problem and
Jen at Woolgirl

First, I'm so glad that it isn't available right now. I fell hard for the gorgeous La Digitessa the last time, and resisted when Spina di Pesce was available. But I'm not sure I could continue to resist, and I already have one addiction...

I love your list of 7 things! I'll have to think of mine now. I just finally got my pedicure yesterday (so I guess no Mani-Pedis on my next trip to Oregon...no problem...we'll just hit the yarn stores!). And the knit and driving...I guess if I can text and drive at 5 mph...oh goodness!

I'm a bit envious over working with so many people who knit. How awesome would that be! Plus your job sounds cool in general (okay, except for the amount of emails. Must resolve the emails, as Tim Gunn would say!) :)
