thanks for the meme-ories

What were you doing 10 years ago?
First went online around this time and almost instantly "discovered" the Goth subculture. Spent a lot of time on Usenet reading alt.gothic and, where I met some of my best friends. Worked at a jukebox hire place, being office manager/music buyer/sales clerk/PA, ended up frazzled most of the time. After years with flatmates, P and I had just moved into a flat on our own away from all our friends and we were pretty much moving away emotionally from them as well.

What were you doing 1 year ago?
Erm, crocheting lots, began my GetCrafty blog, starting to get buzzed about all the funky DIY crafting that's going on around the place. Just moved into our new house, feeling guilty for not doing more gardening.

Starting this post ;) Just finished lunch, was a bit late because I was rewinding some of the balls of yarn I have stashed under my desk - bright fluorescent red baby wool, would you believe? No wonder someone was selling it cheap!

List five creative things you want to achieve this year:
- having a baby
- learning to spin
- dyeing my own yarn
- making cool hats out of aforementioned yarn
- making pots of money from selling craft

List five snacks you enjoy:
- wasabi peas
- green tomato chutney and cheese on toast
- pita crisps
- fresh homemade bread with butter
- Tim-tams *drool*

List five things you would do if money were no object:
- travel to the UK with my grandmother, being able to afford good accommodation and transport and all the assistance she needs to get around and see all the places she's wanted to go to for years
- go to Japan and buy up kawaii and cool shoes
- study fulltime and become a grad student
- increase my donating ten-fold
- start my own shop and employ a seamstress

List five bad habits:
- finishing other people's sentences for them

List five things you like doing:

Name one thing you like about yourself:

Weird.. I bite the egdes of my fingers too. Badly at the moment. I'm told it's an anxiety thing....

I used to bite my nails when I was a kid, so I think this is a form of compensation :(
