Favorite thing about knitting? the constant counting - perfect for the very rare form of asperger's I have.

Circs or straights? Circs

Favorite lace knitting trick? you lace knitting does tricks? Jeez, where have I been?

Favorite lace you want to knit?
I'm looking forward to 'Victorian Lace Today' (amazon has sent my pre-ordered copy already) I reckong there'll be something in there for me. Frost Flowers and Leaves is on the wish list for 2007.

Just Fun, yup that's right, just for fun

Favorite jelly belly flavor? What is a jelly belly?

Tell me everything you know about Eric the Red.....
Um.. His name is Eric... and he's red..?

Holiday carols, sing along, or wish they would be banned from all public airwaves
?love carols and singalong. And karaoke. And singstar.

What is the definition of irony?A fundamentalist religious zealot (any denomination) having a gay child.

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop?
WEll I don't know what a tootsie roll pop is either, these questions are culturally biased!

Why is my cat always puking in front of my son's bedroom door? I hate cats.

What is your superhero power?
I am psychic.

If the laundry is 9 foot by 11 foot (just dreaming, that's a big laundry room), and the walls are 8 feet tall, and you are going to tile the entire room in tiles that are 3 inches by 5 inches, what color should those tiles be? I'd love a huge laundry too, it's where I spend most of my time. Tiles are asylum white, floor to ceiling.

What's for dinner tonight?I've got a hangover so it'll be chicken schnitzel or possibly tuna mornay ..both with steamed brocolli and carrots.

What is clogging my children's bathtub drain?last time I plunged it there were two toothbrushes and a miniature Mufasa (from the Lion King) so really it could be anything...
