I am an Olymipid- or how ever you spell it.

Before you start reading this post I must tell you that
A. Blogger was being a TOTAL piece of sh@)! today when I was trying to post
B. Therefore my spelling sucks because I was so frustrated with the darn thing.
C. That's it, read on....

I was visiting Becky - she tagged me by the way, see the bottom of the post for the meme- and she had a link to the UFOlympics
I loved it, I signed up for it - now I am committed.
So what is the UFO I will be FOing?
My Mrs. B's, thank you.
And I have put a carrot out there for myself- If I get that done I will allow myself to finish my second sock.
"what's that you say, the SECOND sock? That would mean you finished the first sock, no?"
Well, sort of.... Okay, so I am not quite on the second one yet. I was at SnB last night and got to the kitchener toe close- but when I tried it, my toes were sticking thru. I didn't make it long enough. I am going to rip it tonight, extend it and then seal the deal baby. I can hardly wait. I love the way the striping turned out with this colorway.

Four Jobs You Have Had In Your Life:
1. Waitress at Bruno's Country Club - Gerlach's finest- serving up "world famous ravioli"- GAG me with a pitch fork please-

4. GIS analyst for the local school district

You lived in Arcata! You must have gone to HSU? :) Did you like it up here in the boonies?

Well, howdy, ol' neighbor. Eureka is my hometown. Small world.

Glad you signed up for the UF Olys. I was thinking of doing Mrs. B's too. Who knows, it could happen!

Yep- first semester of College I was a Lumberjack. hee hee. I liked it up behind the redwood curtin, but wasn't ready to be that far away from home.
(hence the move to Chico, closer yet far enough away to be "me")

Mandy said...

Goonies is like my favorite movie!! I just watched it last night! I love it!

Liz said...

UFOs, see if I had been wise, I would have waited and seen what the response to Stephanie's utterly insance challenge was going to be, but no, I had to be impulsive... aahh it will be fun, my guy can roll his eyes at me a lot while he is watching the Olympics, and if I finish I finish, and if not, I get, well, I guess I get nothing except an almost finished sweater.

Movies #1, 3 & 4 are all favorites of mine. I go around the office mumbling that I'll 'burn down the building' when I'm having a bad day ;o) OH and whenever Breakfast Club is on all life stops at my house and we all sit and watch it - including the teenager!
