6 Things

I've been tagged by Pfeiffer Photos to share 6 quirky things about myself.

1.) I have hitchhikers thumbs. You know, when you can bend the top part of your thumb waaay back...I guess I'm missing bones there or something odd like that. I was going to include pictures, but I decided that it may send you running from my blog. And I really like my readers, I really do. So, if you're really curious, look it up under google and you'll find some lovely pictures there.

2.)I've completed 3 half-marathons. And I loved every minute of each of them.

3.) I am in love with my sharpies. I think they are the most wonderful writing utensil other than the ink pen. I love staring at my jar of sharpies and choosing which color of the rainbow to use.

(This is the only picture I deemed worthy of putting on the blog...once again, sorry for no hitchhiker thumb pictures.)

4.) I have 45 blogs on my favorites list right now. I guess that's not a lot compared to some people, but checking 45 blogs a day can take quite a bit of time. And I don't know how to use RSS feed, so I'm stuck visiting each one every day. (Doesn't RSS feed like email you the post or something?)

5.) I'm trying to become vegetarian. About a week ago, I watched this really terrible movie by a vegetarian organization and it really made me think twice about where my meat comes from. I guess for me, it's more about animal cruelty than about trying to be "healthier" or "help the environment".

6.) I have an embarrassing amount of yarn right now. I say I'm going to do all these projects, knit all these afghans, hats, scarves, washcloths...you name it, I bought yarn to make it. But it ends up just sitting in my yarn basket unused. Maybe over Christmas break I'll get some time to work on all these great projects.

And now I get to TAG 6 bloggers!

I'm a Sharpie girl myself! There's nothing worse than when one runs out of ink!

I just figured out how to use Google reader last week and it has changed my life. It is worth figuring out!

I also love sharpies! I use only those for my work! Also I would love to see the hitchhiker thumb.. XD! I agree it takes a while to get though all the blogs but it sure makes time fly by! I have a ton of yarn around here somewhere...
