7 Things about Me
  1. I'm currently snowed in and flailing about trying to find a sub to take my classes tomorrow in town.  I usually love being snowed in, but today it's a drag.
  2. I love to read and I love to knit -- this makes the Audible/ipod combo, my absolute favorite technological advance.  Sheer genius -- I can now multi-task my favorite things.  May have to do a bit of that while I'm snowed in tomorrow :)
  3. My dissertation was on witches in Renaissance literature -- specifically drama.  When people come into my house and see the titles of some of my books -- they get a little pale until I explain.
  4. I was a high school drop out at 16.  I did in fairly short order go right on to college and graduate school, by way of a year at a CC, but I still like to call myself a high school drop out.
  5. I knit more than I should and my stash is way bigger than it ought to be.  I don't see the problem with this, but others sometimes DO! :)
  6. My daughters both knit -- maybe more than they should -- though unfortunately, they consider my stash to be their yarn store.  Funny how no actual purchases are ever made, just a lot of thievery! :(
  7. I rarely make my bed.  My mother used to always get on me about this, so maybe that's why I'm so resistant.  Whatever the reason -- I justify it all sorts of ways... my bedroom's upstairs, so nobody every goes up there; it's a good thing to air out a bed; my cats prefer it that way..... but, it probably all boils down to general laziness and stubbornness.  
Here are some of my recently discovered great bloggers.
I am delighted to award the following blogs with
