I've been busy cleaning my way through vacation so far, and it doesn't make for great blogging, so here's another meme from Kathy B...
Do you love Noro or not so much?
|The prettiest Lilac ever!|
Are you more likely to wear a poncho or a shawl?
Which brings you more joy,Casting on or Casting off?
Casting off, hands down. Oh, casting on is nice, and there's always the excitement of a new project, but there's nothing like casting off and admiring you work.
Are you more likely to knit a baby a hat or booties?
Tough one - I'm not really keen on either. When knitting for babies, I prefer to knit cardigans or toys. But if I had to chose... let's go with hats!
|Wee English Daisies|
Does anyone in your family fall asleep in a chair or do they fall asleep in bed?
My grandpa was terrible for it. He'd fall asleep watching his hockey game, and as soon as you changed the channel, he'd wake up and yell at you because he was watching that dontchaknow!!! On the rare occasion, when we've had a very long day, Dave will fall asleep in his chair. But as soon as I notice, I boot him up to bed.

Would you rather win a hot air balloon ride or a dinner cruise?
Hot air balloon. I went on a dinner cruise in Toronto once and it was horrible. Over-priced (I didn't pay but my poor date was out a pretty penny), crowded, terrible food, and bugs everywhere. Swarms of little black midges.

Do you watch the awful news or do you avoid it?
I'm a former journalist, so it's hard for me to avoid it. Though I don't watch it. I hate video news*. I read it. Lots and lots and lots of it. I read the awful news and the good news. The boring news and the fun news. As long as it's well written, I eat it up.
I think reading about the awful things helps you understand the world a little more, and appreciate the good news a whole lot more.
*I find video news far too short and seriously lacking in information and balance. Generally, they only have a minute or two to tell the story, so you know you're not getting anywhere remotely close to the full story.

Do you go to the movies or wait for them on cable?
