I’ve been tagged by Mrs. H, Dana and Fuzzy Izmit (not her real name, I assure you).
In case you haven’t already met these ladies, allow me to introduce you.
Mrs. H is the author of the I Like Yarn blog and podcast. And, yes, she does like yarn. Her stories about her family, neighbors and life events have made me laugh so hard – I cried.
Dana is the author of My Tangled-Up Life blog. She is also the person behind Unwind Yarn Company, an Etsy store that sells beautiful, hand-dyed yarns along with handmade scarves and hats.
Fuzzy Izmit is also an owner of her own Etsy store filled with unique bracelets, stash beads, and chainmaille. (I swoon when confronted by chainmaille. It speaks to be with its simple chain links and labor-intensive craftsmanship; very similar to knitting which starts out with a string of yarn).
Although Dana and Fuzzy tagged me with the 7itis (list 7 unknown facts about yourself and then tag 7 people), I opted to steal Mrs. H’s format because it is easier. I am still having difficulty typing. ‘S’s are my enemy.

No. My cousin’s name is Stephen. Does that count?

Yes as well as my own sayings.

32. What’s the best movie you’ve seen in the past 2 weeks?
This question could be reworded as “Name the movie you’ve seen in the past 2 weeks – nay, 2 months”. My answer is the same: Meet the Robinsons. I wanted to see it because Pixar’s chess man was featured in it. It was a cute, but dull movie.

Because I was tagged and this survey seemed easier than coming up with 7 random things about myself.
38. Tag 5 people who would do this survey.
