I was looking for daily topics to help keep me posting, and came across ye olde Friday Five! I’m impressed that it’s still around! Today’s topic is “Leftovers”, so let’s see what we can come up with…
1. Leftover from April 17, 2009: What’s a creature comfort (practically unnecessary) you must take with you on an overnight trip in the great outdoors? Please consider a phone something that has practical necessity!
That would, of course, be my knitting. Yes, yes, socks are practical, but other than keeping my fingers busy, my brain semi-engaged, and my patience in check, there’s no real necessity for yarn in my purse. At least, that’s what everyone else would have me believe…
Because I’m Canadian, and therefore not subject to the Federal Holidays of my friends and neighbours to the south, yesterday didn’t cost me much. I went to work then came home. Technically, gas to & from work was probably about 3 to 5 bucks, meals probably would have come to about $30. Maybe. So rounding up to the nearest single bill available from the bank, maybe $50. Of course, that’s for both myself and the husbeast, so individually, about $25.
3. Leftover from January 25, 2008: What was your excuse the last time you were REALLY late for something?
Traffic. There has been a lot of construction in our area – primarily roadways and highways. as a result we usually wind up appearing a few minutes later than intended. Weather is another factor, as I can leave early to compensate, and wind up not only delayed by traffic, but also moving slowly due to weather. I’d rather move slowly than get in an accident, though.
4. Leftover from February 18, 2011: What was your first online purchase?
I’m not sure, but I think it was a Jolly Jumper off Ebay as a first Yule present for my nephew Milo. It was either that or a replacement battery for my old iBook. Either way, I’m pretty sure it came from Ebay.
5. Leftover from December 25, 2009: Which of your gifts do you think you do not put to its best, fullest use?
That’s an easy one…my spinning wheel. I love her dearly, and I moved her to the living room so that I would be prompted to spin more often (the temperature is also more stable there), but I still need to knuckle down and start devoting some time to using her. I’ve promised myself that for my weight loss goals, I could reward myself with either yarn or fibre, and I’m thinking that I may just work towards some shipments from Crown Mountain Farm. Because I hear their product is super-awesome 😉
