6 Random Things

Thank goodness I got tagged for a meme! I've had so many things to write about lately that I've been paralyzed to do so.

Sam tagged me with the '6 Random Things About Me' Meme.

Here are the rules:

* Link to the person who tagged you.
* Post the rules on your blog.
* Write six random things about yourself.
* Tag six people at the end of your post.
* Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
* Let the tagger know your entry is up.

1. I'm terrified of driving on the highway. I'm going to be one of those women who by age 50, I just won't drive at all anymore - I won't leave the house unless Dave drives me somewhere!

2. Next month will be ten years ago that my husband and I met.

3. I'm pretty adept at ASL (American Sign Language). Like most languages, I'm better at "speaking" it then "reading" it.

4. I finally made my own jam. It wasn't nearly as difficult as I'd previously suspected.

5. I design a lot of knitting patterns. The problem is, my designs usually far outreach my actual abilities (as in, I know what I want them to look like, I just don't know how to make them look how I'm picturing them) and most of them are half-finished but thrown into the Closet of No Return.

6. I'll be in California (specifically Fresno but flying in and out of San Francisco) next month. Anyone want to take me yarn crawling?

Trying to un-paralyze my writing, Ruth!

P.S. I tag

If you can make jam, I know you can finish one of your patterns! I bet you come up with some great stuff. Stick with it! Give us a peek of some of them.

Wish I could meet you, but it's a long way from San Diego.

Re your comment on my blog: I haven't seen Bordertown. But my husband used to work for HP, where part of his job was outsourcing multiple departments to India. Inevitably, he ended up getting laid off when his department was (say it with me) outsourced to India. Fortunately, he is a good planner, and by then our law practice was up and running well, so we haven't suffered. But lots and lots (tens of thousands) of other people have not been so lucky, at HP alone. Multiply that be hundreds of other large companies, and it's not hard to see that job losses like that cannot be sustained. I wonder who these companies think will be able to buy their products, if no one is making a living wage?

I think we would all be thrilled with a thrown in the closet design attempt picture post. You would sort of give the rest of us permission to try and fail!

I think it is awesome that you design your own patterns. I'd love to see some one of these days...

YAY!!!!! You're coming to visit!!! I'm going to look at the calendar today. We HAVE to get together. Woot!

And I'll probably totally scare you with my freeway driving!
