More Random - 8
1. I try to be a good listener and I make time if I need to for my family and friends. It amazes me how often people are enormously “too busy” (and self important?) for others.
2. I believe that one of the things that has made me emotionally strong is growing up with my 3 sisters. Thanks to them, I can handle criticism, brutal honesty and insults without internalizing it. I love nothing more than a good argument, but I can’t handle drama queens, divas or whiners.
3. I generally tend to avoid large groups of people (either virtually or in real life . . . see #2). In situations where such groups are inevitable, I will gravitate toward an older or less-contentious person.
4. When I find something I love, I always want to share it. I find it hard to keep a secret about something wonderful and I generally don’t like surprises. Don’t ever assume I would love a surprise party – I would hate it.
5. I use Bloglines but I don’t have more than 136 subscriptions at any one time. If I get close to 136, I start unsubscribing from feeds.
6. Material possessions don’t impress me. Good character, integrity, and a quick and quirky sense of humor are rare – and those are the only things that truly impress me.
7. I used to be a compulsive worrier – I would lie awake all night and worry about things (i.e. imaginary tragedies involving my friends or family). The only thing that broke the cycle was the book, “How to Stop Worrying and Start Living,” by Dale Carnegie.
8. I’d rather know more about you than try to get you to know things about me, which is why these memes are so difficult – I’d rather read them than write them.
Thank you, Kat! Now I’m supposed to tag eight others but it’s going to take some time to figure out who I want to tag, so I’ll update this blog entry when I do.
If you came for the Habu Kushu Kushu progress, I've included a photo for you:
I have so much more knitting to do on this scarf. For the next one, I will stick to the merino/steel combo. There's plenty of merino left to have done much more. Lesson learned.
