Betsy tagged me.

I don’t think I’ve ever been tagged before.

BETSY LIKES ME! SHE REALLY LIKES ME!

Um, right, so…

I guess this means I gotta do her MEME, eh?

5 secrets about vibey:

  1. I kinda hated knitting when I started. However, I kept doing it because I wanted the finished products. 3 Years later, I got Stitch n’ Bitch as a gift and fell in love with knitting.
  2. I learned about sex from a set of encycolpedias we had in our basement. I freaked out. YOU PUT WHAT WHERE?!?!?!
  3. I wear my jeans *many* times before I wash them again. This will gross some of you out to NO END!
  4. In my eighth grade school picture, I have a unibrow. UNIBROW = *ONE* EYEBROW. Sad.
  5. Any plant I own dies. If you love your plant, don’t entrust it to me.

It’s a lame list of secrets, but I dug deep and it’s all I could come up with!!! (Except for the stuff I seriously can’t tell you. You know how it is.)

Happy weekend!!! :)

It’s February Already?

There are NO POSTS for January 2007! I don’t think there’s ever been another month EVER in the history of this blog (since I started taking it seriously) that had NO ENTRIES! SHAME!

I have no good excuses to give you.

Are you even still reading?

{{sigh}}

Well, I thought about jumping into February and forgetting aaalll about January, but I just. can’t! It’s been tradition here at vibeknits to reflect back and look forward and whatnot when the year changes.

2006 CANNOT GO BY UNRELECTED UPON, YO!

So, WHAT WENT DOWN IN VIBELAND IN 2006:

  • I started Ice Skating Lessons And I’m still doing them!!! I’m up to Freestyle 2 now (although, I won’t likely pass to Freestyle 3 this session because my 1-foot spin is non-existent!) Also? The guitar and the ballet have kinda fallen by the wayside for now. FOR NOW!
  • A bunch of my friends moved away and I’m still totally mad at them for it ;)
  • I met the best thing that’s ever happened to me He still totally thinks I’m confused. I know better ;)
  • I got introduced o the Chinatown Bus. I don’t care it it DOES turn out to be a coke-smuggling operation (or something equally as shady) $35 roundtrip CANNOT be beat!
  • I stopped working out and started turning back to mush. Au revoir, Laurent :(
  • I had one of the worst birthdays ever (6.26.06). There were fun birthday times SURROUNDING my birthday, but I spent part of the evening of my actual 30th birthday crying in a bathroom stall. And a metro car. It was sad.
  • I FINALLY WENT TO PARIS! I’ve always always *always* wanted to go to France and I DID! And it was SOMUCHFABULOUS!
  • My roomate fell in luuurrrve and left me to build a lovenest with her boy.
  • I GOT PROMOTED! After four years of being a hermit and working late nights from 10p-2a, I got moved to MIDDAYS, 10a-3pm! LISTEN ONLINE!
  • I left my sweet knitting store job. I don’t miss stacking yarn balls per se, but I totally miss all the peoples, most of whom I never really get to see anymore :(
  • My heart got broken by a family member and I moved AGAIN, and NOT into my own Condo. It’s not about the money though, it’s about the priciple.
  • I stopped knitting! :( Ok, not STOPPED stopped, but something’s WRONG with me. I’m SO not knitting that much and I TOTALLY could be! I guess I just need to be really inspired by something…

I don’t really have any resolutions for 2007 and I’m not setting any abstract goals, because let’s face it…I pretty much broke every ‘goal’ I set for 2006. But I do have one thing I really wanna work on this year. My one hope for 2007 is:

  • To be a better friend

I think I used to be a really good friend. Somehow though, I’ve slipped I think and it makes me really sad. I can do so much better.

In 2007, I want my friends to feel loved, cared for and appreciated because people, there isn’t much else in this life that’s more important.

2007 (stealing from my bf) is also The Year of the Finances. Saying any more than that would be actual goal-setting, so I’ll stop right there.

May you all have a 2007 that puts my 2006 to shame. You deserve it.
