7 things

For the longest time I've seen the seven things about me-ish meme's going around the knit-blogosphere and I've always been meaning to do one. Well, today super awesome downstream Secret Pal Amy got her reveal package (hi Amy!) and perhaps I should tell a bit more about myself now that I don't have to worry about ruining my identity. And I just joined up for the Sockittome Twice swap so I should have an upstream pal lurker around here any day now (hi!). So here we go, 7 interesting things about me:

1) I continually exasperate my parents with my book requests on my Christmas list which have included Preston Manning's autobiography Think Big: My Life in Politics (great book even if I don't support his party!) and A Million Random Digits with 100,000 Normal Deviates which as the name implies is just a huge book of random numbers (and a prized possession of mine!)
2) From grade 2-6 I was in the wrestling club and wrestled at several tournaments
3) I have a strong aversion to foods that mix fruit and meat particularly if the fruit is lemon or orange. The one exception is apricot chicken.
4) I can still do a back bend and put both my feet behind my head :P
5) I have traveld to: the US, Mexico, Jamaica, Grand Caymens, Morroco, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy and Greece. And this year over Christmas I'll be adding Cuba to that list (woo hoo!)
6) I have never watched the Sound of Music (apparently this shocks people).
7) I used to occassionally wear a tiara to school in my senior year of high school and desperately miss that. I have the tiara I wore to grad prominently displayed in my room.

So there you go, some new facts about moi. And just because I'd feel sad about an update without a picture, here's some yarn I've acquired, Yartini in the Strawberry Daquiri colourway, yum!

I don't find it weird at all that you have never seen The Sound of Music. Not my favorite musical; I'm much more a fan of Caberet and RENT.

That yarn looks fantastic! What amazing colors!
