Just a place where I can sit and write my thoughts on my newest passion. . . . . knitting. Hopefully, I will better document my progress throughout knitting and get in touch with others as obsessed as I am!

A nurse you say? REALLLY. . . . .

Your Aura is Blue

Your Personality: Your natural warmth and intuition nurtures those around you. You are accepting and always follow your heart.
You in Love: Relationships are your top priority, and this includes love. You are most happy when you are serious with someone.
Your Career: You need to help others in your job to feel satistifed. You would be a great nurse, psychologist, or counselor.

The "Knitty Gritty" does it again. . . . .

Last month, Annie, came up with an excellent discussion question regarding why we all blog. She's at it again. Here's this month's question:

I feel very Carriesque at this moment in time.

**Do you believe that friendships formed via the internet are as strong as
those formed by meeting friends face-to-face? Why or why not? **

So once again, I present you with my answer as posted on her blog. Please feel free to disregard as you so choose:

I have to hand it to you, you always find a way to make sure that you get us all thinking. As always (my disclaimer) the following are MY opinions and my opinions only. I respect everyone elses view on things. I am just about to ramble my own thoughts on the question at hand. OK, now that the legalities are out of the way. . . . . .

Online friendships vs. face-face????

I think that a friendship is a friendship. The manner in which the friendship is started is of little significance. What IS of significance is how the friendship affects those involved. The level of the commitment, intimacy between the 2 parties and the care between the 2 is the ruler by which a friendship should be evaluated. How a friendship is constructed or maintained is not or should not be a factor in the measurement on said friendship. How a person responds to someone else's needs and how the two interact is what establishes the 'importance' or 'meaning' of the relationship. Being in physical proximity to eachother is of little consequence if people aren't supportive of eachother. Listening to each other, supporting each other, boosting each other, laughing with, crying with, respecting each other for who you each are, reaching out to each other and helping each other; these are the measures of a true friendship. I have made online friends that are more supportive of me and who I am and what I need than the acquantances I see on a daily basis. A true friend takes you for who you truly are and loves you for that. No questions asked, unconditionally and as you are. That is how a friendship should be measured and I think that all that can certainly be fulfilled no matter whether you have 'met' the person or not.

Hopping Halloween Batman!

Ok so that was a lousy attempt at resurrecting an old show but, WOW did I get a great halloween surprise today. My F.A.B. secret pal sent me this! Can you believe all the goodies? I have a ball of Australian Merino in a yummy pumpkin variegated colorway, a package of peace of mind chewing gum (Lord knows I NEED that), her first 2 stitch markers ever (a funky spiky black and white ball and a spider one), a badge/ID holder with a heart (my all time favorite shape in the world), a pack of candy corn, a travel pack of candy corn facial tissues, and the best of all, a Red Cross commemorative knit kit for socks. I have been eyeing that for awhile (I am into all that kinda stuff) and she read that I love to knit socks and am volunteering for the red cross SOOOO, I got the kit from her. Isn't that just SOOOO COOL??! I can't wait to get my hands on that yarn. I have to line it up behind Xmas stuff, but STILL. Even if I don't get to it for awhile, I have it. Thanks Stacy!!!!!

Tee hee!

You are Slinky Heels!

You're an uptown, well put together woman.
But you're not too uptight to enjoy a hot club.
You're always the best dressed chick in the
room and you'll only settle for the best in men
