A Christina's Attic First

After blogging for three and a half years, I've been tagged by Knitting Knirvana for my first meme.

THE RULES: Each player of this game starts with the "6 weird things about you." People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly.In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

1. I'm the oldest of eight kids- all from the same parents. And no, we're not Catholic or Mormon.

2. When I was in college, I came back from the dorms to find a sweaty guy with his shirt laying over my bike seat. Repulsed, I marched up and asked him what he was doing with my bike. He apologized, "This is your bike? Sorry." and walked off. It was after he left that I saw my bike lock had been horribly twisted by a large metal stake. I'd just confronted a bike thief.

3. A few months ago, the kids and I were eating at a pizza place when an old lady drove her car into the restaurant. Luckily, she drove into the one set of windows with a steel support column behind them. Otherwise, she would have hit our table.

4. While crossing a highway when I was sixteen, I was hit by a car going about 30 mph. I broke my left tibia and fibula in about 5 or 6 places and had a rod in my leg for a year.

5. Due to that leg rod, my left knee cap is off center. I found out a few years ago that not being able to flex your knee sideways makes it very hard to steer when skiing downhill.

6. I love to wear pajama pants, but can't stand sleeping in them. It drives me nuts when they get twisted up around my legs.

I'm tagging Kristine, Phyl Phyl, Rebekah, Sue, Rossana, and Amelia.

Christmas gift number 8 is done-
another Purl Scarf.

I decided to scrap the Marcingny Jacket for Joshua. Instead I'm working on Marc for him to wear Christmas Eve.
So far there are two sleeves and a back finished.

Baby Carlie arrived on the 12th, and I'm only finished with 3 of the 7 blanket panels.
We'll be out their way early next month, so I'll try to finish it by then.

Thanks for the tag, Christina!

I hope you and your family all enjoy a very Merry Christmas and Happy 2007!

Happy holidays to you and yours!

Thanks for playing! :) I agree on the pajama pants!!

Gorgeous baby blanket Christine, and it makes you realise just how weird things do happen to you in life too. Thanks for the tagging, I will try and do it over the holidays before New Years. I hope your family have a wonderful and very Merry Christmas too.

Happy New Year! I'm just catching up on my blog reading, thanks for the tag. I'll post them later today.

Thank goodness for the steel support column!
