I've been a vegetarian now for 2 and 1/2 years and going strong. I'm not ready for the jump to vegan, but maybe some day. My tree-hugging ways and a seriously convincing, and may I say very attractive, philosophy professor are responsible for my current convictions which my carnivore-like father disdains. I am however a card carying PETA member, and I believe I'll be a vegetarian for a very long time.
Reality TV is a vice of mine. I now that it's stupid and definitely not reality, but I just can't help myself. My favorite's are Beauty and the Geek, Real World, The Duel, Flavor of Love, Biggest Loser and most recently Man vs. Wild (Bear Gyllis you drive me wild). Really though, I'm just a TV junkie in general. I mean come on knitting and TV are the perfect marriage, so it just fits. And now that I can get online and watch episodes for free whenever my little heart desires, I'm in real trouble!
I definitely love animals. I however don't own any myself expect for some pretty pathetic fish. My roommate does have a very cool cat, Adam. My parents have two cats, Pete and Sophie. Pete a fun-loving, good cat. Sophie on the other hand lacks that agile grace that most cats possess. In fact, one day I saw her run into a wall, seriously I really did. Annie is our dog, a Great Dane. She's 150 pounds of gorgeous. If you've ever read the comic Marmaduke then you sort of know Annie; she's goofy, smart, and takes offense at being told what to do.
I also try to change the world one plastic bag at a time. This is my ultimate pet peeve. I absolutely hate it when I buy chap stick at the supermarket and they try to place it in a huge bag. I mean come on we all know it's going in my purse anyway. If they can't grasp this concept you should see their faces when I have a pile of groceries and say, "oh no I have my own bag". They gawk at me as if I'm insulting their polluting plastic bags and maybe I am; deal with it. Since I work in sales, this is precisely the reason I always ask if the customer wants a bag. Ha ha, I've defeated the system!
Motorcylcing has been in my life since I can remember. I started riding with my dad when I was three. We had a side car. That's right I was a badass even at three. I got my license a couple years ago and now I ride a Honda CX500. My sister just got her license, so now the whole family drives. I made us matching t-shirts too. No it's not dorky, I bet you wish you had one.
And finally, I am most certainly a Knitter with a capitol K. I want to own alpacas and angoras some day and learn to spin so I have an unending amount of fiber in my backyard, just in case those terrorists attack. I'm seriously thinking of becoming a yarn rep too, so yarn will truly be my life!
I'm pretty happy with that description at least for this year. Maybe this time next year I will add; thin, sky diving, and gourmet chef to the list. Hmmm, two of those seem to clash, but oh well. I'll leave you with a picture of my lizard ridge afghan. I have 9 blocks seemed together and 2 more finished that leaves 13 to blocks to go!
