Something new!

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

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 ...

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.

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!
