Things you don't know about T.

So J. and I have been at this blogging thing for a few months. I figure all you really know about us is that (a) we're obsessed with yarn, knitting and knitting related people (like her and her and her) and (b) we spend far too much time (and money) on knitting.


I thought I'd like to deepen the pot. Make myself seem less self-indulgent and more 3-dimensional. I thought I'd let you in on a few, more meaningful, parts of my life.


1. I was somewhat athletic, at some point in my life. I was actually recruited by 3 colleges/universities to play basketball for them (I didn't play for any in the end).


2. This post makes me laugh. I'll be bookmarking this.


3. I have very eclectic music taste. On my iPod, I have the following: Hall&Oates, Jack Johnson, Coldplay, Back Street Boys, Neil Diamond, Justin Timberlake, John Mayer, Chilliwack, Def Leppard, Everclear, Fergie, Gin Blossoms, Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, Joni Mitchell, the Killers, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Nellie Furtado, Regina Spektor, U2 and my ultimate favorite, Rick Springfield. There are many others, a lot of which I won't admit to in public.


4. In my job I've been referred to as "highly-organized" and "driven"; more recently, I was referred to as a "key researcher". I relate to none of these labels...not even a little bit.


5. I love taking the boys to the park; I hate engaging in small talk with other park moms. It relates to my abhorrence of small talk in general.


As you can see, I'm much more than just a knitter (maybe not as deep as I had originally hoped). Far more than that. Anyone else want to share some nugget about themselves? Something few other people know about?

I like watching BBC TV shows.

More on the J. Expose Post.

You forgot to mention your longing to be singer as emphatically pointed out by our Ewe friend. "Jessie is a friend, well I know he's been a good friend of mine ..."

I had no idea about the basketball, and my opinion of you has decreased slightly regarding some of your choices in music (i.e. Fergie). I guess I can forgive you since I have some pretty bad music on my I-pod too.

I love the Green Bay Packers (won their season opener, yeah!!) and I attended John Stockton Basketball camp in grade 11. It was super sweet.

Good ones Lauren. John Stockton basketball camp - impressive.

And I didn't admit to my real nuggets of music on my iPod. Those are only for me to know.

Small talk with park moms? Ah, I feel your pain. Your music choices are interesting. If you've admitted to those ones, I'm frightened of the "real nuggets". My guilty pleasure? Sadly, I enjoy Kelly Clarkson. Shh. Don't tell anyone.

I too love the park but hate the park moms. Let's go sometimes, we don't even have to talk to each other! Tidbit, hmmm, I start books like you start knitting projects and... I too was recruited by a couple of colleges to play volleyball but never accepted a spot on a team. Dumb. Another... I would love to be a stay at home mom, but not so I could make small talk at the park.
