400 posts!

I saw that my last post was my 400th. Huzzah me! In honor of my prolificosity, I want to have my first contest. So here it is. Tell me five things you've learned about me from reading my blog (if you know me in the three-dimensional world, you have to use info only from the blog too).* And don't try to butter me up with "divinely beautiful, incredibly talented, should be married to the guy from the Rowan book." Yes, those are true, but you need just the facts, ma'am. Post them in the comments section or email me wolindaATmacDOTcom. I'll take all entries, put them in a cup and have my loverly assistant (aka ABC) pull a name out. Let's end the contest on Tuesday, July 25th, AYH (After Yarn Harlot). The winner shall receive a skein of yarn of my choosing. I must dig through my stash to find the perfect one. I promise it won't be Red Heart (don't have any) or Fun Fur (unless you like it). Or, if you aren't a knitter, I shall find some swag to brighten your day. And thanks to all of you who leave commnents. You truly are the highlight of my day. I love each and every one of you and count you as friend. Here's to 400 more!!! **Please mom and fam, no Bay City Roller stories or any of the family jokes of stupid things I've said and done. Remember I'M the one with the blog, and I can and will find unflattering photos of you to post on the internet.

Okay, so I'll try this again. I tried posting 5 things, but I don't know where they went. Turns out that I have been here before, but not until I started perusing your history did I recognize this fact. You are an interesting lady.

1. Your mother recently had hip replacement surgery.
2.You graduated from high school in 1981.
3. Your recent discovery of the "You Knit What?" blog leaves you in hysterics.
4. Your son and his cousin both played simultaneous jokes which consisted of placing rubber bands on the spray nozzle handles so that when the water was turned on at the kitchen sink the person standing there would be drenched. Your son and his cousin live approximately 1,000 miles apart.
5. You are amazingly open-minded and patient. This is evidenced by the fact that you listened to Gwen Stefani's song, "Rich Girl" carefully enough to learn that the lyrics had some significance. Personally, I couldn't get past the yodeling sound so I make my daughters turn down the radio when it comes on. Whatever happened to good old rock and roll and '80's pop... sigh, the good old days.
Happy 400th post!

5. You've bought stuff from Suzie's etsy shop.

So here are 5 things that I have learned about you so far:

1. You are a wonderful mother to two children, a boy and a girl and a good wife to your husband who has just celebrated turning 40.
2. You have redhair, obviously.
3. You love the color blue.
4. You like to knit socks.
5. You love Harry Potter.

By the way I think that JKR will kill him off because as rumour has it she does not want anyone writing any HP stories after she finishes Book 7, and I think maybe Draco will be killed off too. I hope that she does not kill off HP, the last book was bad enough at the end!
