...and answer

i'm going to break this evening's posting up into two parts. this section is answering OTHER people's questions... the next one will be asking my own questions of a couple of poor victi... err volunteers!

from tina,
1. You're stuck on an island...what three things would you want to have with you..?and not something to get off the imaginary island
a magical ipod, with every song EVER on it... and an unlimited battery supply. company... i like my alone time but i gotta have SOMEONE cool there to share the fun parts with. a life-time supply of Dr Pepper. self explanitory ;)
2. You mentioned things on your blog were soap-opera-ish. Have you watched soap operas?...do you have a favorite one or a thought on them?
i havent, actually. i've caught bits and pieces when staying home sick with my mom (back when i lived at home and all) but i've never really been a 'watcher'. i tend more towards the teen-soaps. you know, the action/adventure/drama types, buffy, angel, charmed, etc... heh.
3. Do you have any pets?
as seen on the previous 'filler' post, i have a fantastic kitty named rowan. she's weird, and has a moustache. she's currently staying at my parents house, which sucks cause i really miss her. but she has the company of the other three cats who live there; theeslar (fat-slar), lily (the queen bitch), and jenkins (roundie, the cute one). so at least i know she's not lonely :)

i know you didnt ask this, but i'll tell it anyway. i got rowan... because our Lab, daisy, used to sleep in my room. i am a creature of habbit, and got VERY used to having her there, and was very not-happy whenever she couldnt be there for some reason. two summers ago, we found out daisy was on her way out. after years of minor health problems (she was an abused shelter dog) her past had finally caught up with her, and in a major way. i was a wreck... and... 3 days before daisy was to either be operated on or put down (depending on the size of the tumor) my mom ran into the most darling little kitten ever in a box on the counter at our local Petco. she brought her home for me, and i had a few more days with daisy while getting used to the Little One... and she's been my salvation ever since. ok, that's all. heh.
4. Do you watch tv? Have a favorite channel/show?
my tv only KNOWS three channels, hah. cartoon network, disney and nickelodeon. i may be 22, but my remote doesnt have to know that!! i'm all about adult swim, lizzie maguire, fairly odd parents, drake and josh... etc.
5. What kind of yarn would be your "dream yarn"? it doesn't have to exist.
are you familiar with the feeling of a Lab's ear? or a beagle's? THAT. i want a yarn that feels like THAT when knitted up, without harming any puppies in the making... hah. a close second? magical yarn that you can knit up at a large gague (easier on my hands) then somehow magically shrink into small-gague projects such as socks and gloves.

from colette:
1. You are a massage therapist - what made you decide to do this? Why did you pick the Swedish Institute in NYC i/o going to the school on the Island?
frankly, the science-angle of it was what originally got me STARTED. all of the biology and anatomical sciences that i love without the CALCULUS of northeastern's biology program? ok by me! but the more i got into it i realized, i've been 'that girl' giving backrubs to all of my friends all of my life... and it makes me feel good. and now, i can make MONEY doing that? ok! i picked swedish because MY massage therapist (who i've been seeing since '99, and is now my boss!) very 'subtly' suggested it. she wouldnt 'outright' tell me to go there, but she made it very clear she'd be VERY HAPPY if i chose that school... essentially implying that i'd be guaranteed a job. heh. oh, and after visiting both campuses i just FELT better at swedish. oh, and! i'd rather spend time on the train than in the car in LI traffic ANY day of the week... i read a lot of good books and took a lot of great naps on those trainrides :)

2. If you could complete any project in any fiber using any technique - what would you choose?
the ultimate would be cleaning, spinning, designing, knitting and FINISHING my own aran sweater with genuine irish wool. preferably from my own sheep, raised off the coast of galway ;)
3. Do you prefer to knit for yourself or others? - If for others - why?
i wish i could say for others ;) but... i love knitting SMALL things for others. it makes them happy, and if given to the right person makes ME very happy to see my knitted items going to a good home. however, i much prefer knitting more time-consuming projects for myself. i dont like the 'mystery' of whether or not something will fit someone i dont have on hand to measure any time day or night. i havent quite mastered the art of making things ... fit. hah.
4. What was the most extravagant thing you ever bought/did for feed your fiber addiction?
i bought a BAG of noro kochoran yarn. a BAG. i still dont even know what i'm going to do with it yet... but that was most certainly out of my budget at the time... hell, at ANY time. but it was the last bag of a color that was being discontinued and that i was particularly enamored of. you would've done the same, right??
5. Lastly, I know some people like to watch TV or even read while they knit - I can't do that - it is too distracting, I like to listen to music. If you could make up the best playlist to knit to ever - what would be on it?
holy cow that's a tough one. it would have to be... energetic but not like 'get up and dance' cause i'd never get any knitting done!! i'm just going to throw some bands out there, i really cant recall proper song titles. Squeeze, Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, the Killers, Coheed and Cambria, Beck, Deftones, Nine Inch Nails, the Doors... it's gotta have a good beat my needles can follow :)

from nipper:
1. I'll ask you the question I always get and never have an answer for... What's your next haircolor?
if it were a perfect world, it would be a vibrant pink, with overlaying orange streaks along my part. (hm... seems like something you'd appreciate... heh.) in the real world, though, i've learned not to PLAN with my hair. i want a nice solid tone? i get accidental-streaks. i want big chunky pieces of color? i get subtle highlights... so i'm gonna throw some bleach on my hair for a while... toss on some pink and purple on random spots... and see what happens!
2. What the deal with Dr. Pepper? Are you planning on picking up Defective Yeti's new title for such drinks?
oddly enough i'd never even HEARD of tycola (that was it, right?) before!! i'll probably stick to the good old 'official title' though... i'm a purist at heart... mr pibb is ok, but i'll keep on requesting my first choice, Dr. Pepper!
3. In February you made a post about how you wanted to be a "cool and interesting blogger." How's that coming? Thanks for listing me there, btw, I was shocked.
it's going pretty badly! i... havent been able to post pics yet, my posting is sporatic at best, and the most interesting thing in my life lately was getting dumped! one thing i've done better, though, i've greatly improved on my goal to comment more often on other blogger's pages. you got your listing there because, well... i genuinely find your blog interesting!
4. How's the finger? And how did you knit with a broken finger? I find it hard enough to knit when my fingernails are too long.
the finger still looks like crap! but i suppose that's a result of the nasty-ness still growing out. it's amazing shades of brown and purple... heh. on knitting with a broken finger... i only broke the tip, so i suppose it would've been worse if the break was farther down. i managed to create some sort of technique where i knit with my left middle finger hanging out in the air, and used my ring finger to push stitches forward to the point. that took... plenty of practice! and, if you recall, i could ONLY do K stitches with that technique.
5. What have you decided to do with the red wool you were going to use for Asshat's band's Team Zissou hats?
as of yet, still nothing. someone made an offer to take it off of my hands... but my email ATE the offer soon after, so i have no way of contacting said person again. i was thinking of knitting some really huge, gay doily and GLUING IT with gorilla glue to the hood of his truck... or maybe i'll just keep knitting the zissou hats, i've had a couple of offers from other friends who would be interested in purchasing them. why, do you have any better ideas? :) (btw, i absolutely love the use of 'asshat' in the context of... hats! clever, clever.)

ROFL - Alice, we must be connected somehow!

"i bought a BAG of noro kochoran yarn. a BAG."
