Something new!


Appetizer
Do you consider yourself to be an optimist or a pessimist? Optimist. A cynical one, but an optimist nonetheless.

Soup
What is your favorite color of ink to write with? In elementary school, we used fountain pens, and I remember I had some ink that was peacock blue. I think it was really pretty, but realize now that it was wasted on schoolwork ...

Salad
How often do you get a manicure or pedicure? Do you do them yourself or go to a salon and pay for them? I give myself a manicure once a week, and a pedicure about once an month, sometimes more often in the summer. I go to a nail salon for a manicure every couple of months, and always get a salon pedicure at the beginning of the summer. I love them, but can't afford them on a more frequent basis. True divine decadence, as far as I'm concerned.

Main Course
Have you ever won anything online? If so, what was it? Yes, I have won yarn in a couple of blog contests. It is so exciting, since before I started knitting, I had never won anything.

Dessert
In which room in your house do you keep your home computer? Our computer is on the third floor of our house, in what can be a guest bedroom, but is where we have the computer, all of my craft and sewing stuff, and where there is a desk and file cabinets.

And, before I sign off, the fierce, ferocious* Garden Kitty would just like to say:


Happy Friday the 13th!



*OK, so he was starting a yawn when I took this picture, but I'm sure he could be fierce and ferocious if he needed to be!

That's a very cute picture of Garden Kitty! I have only had 2 manicures in my life and never a pedicure. I'm totally underprivledged.

Love the black cat greeting and also reading the answers to your meme. I posted mine a little late but hope you can visit.

A fierce and ferocious yawn!

I only truly like manicures and pedicures for the massage.

There's no such thing as wasted peacock blue ink! It's always tasteful.

Peacock blue is a most wonderful ink color. One of mine has always been a medium brown, however, especially when used on off-white paper to make it look like old parchment.

Aren't online knitters a great group? Full of contests and prizes and ways to make each other feel better.

Bridget- I never thought of it that way, but I guess I'm a cynical optimist as well.

If I ever come into money- Im would get a manicure and pedicure every week, just because I love it so much.

Brigitte said...

I must be one of the only person in the world who thinks pedicures are annoying, and gets bored with manicures! I'd sooner do it myself...

But hey! I remember the peacock blue ink, only I used it in high school.

I love manicures and pedicures, but I can only do it once or twice a year in a salon. The rest of the time I do it myself too. One of the glories of summer!
