Tagged by Sunflowerfairy

The rules:

Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write in their blogs the 7 facts, as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag seven others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and to read your blog. Here are my facts:

1. The five books on the shelf next to my desk that don't have a fine layer of dust on them are: a dictionary, a thesaurus, a French/English dictionary, The All New Joy of Cooking, and A Basic Course In American Sign Language.

2. I electrocuted myself on Tuesday. Nothing major, just a stupid mistake while welding. Lesson learned: turn off the electricity before making your arm part of the curcuit.

3. Porcupine Tree is one of my favorite musical groups.

4. I used to write Star Wars fanfic. Slash fanfic. I also wrote a recipe for Bantha Burgers. And I waited in line for four hours to see Episode 3 at the AMC Empire theater in NYC.

5. I love thunder, lightning, and heavy rainstorms, but I hate dull, drizzly days.

6. I have more hats than I know what to do with, but no scarves.

7. I raised silkworms for a few years. In their fifth instar (their biggest size before they start spitting out fiber), their chewing sounds like a light rainfall.

I tag (and hope they'll play along):

Blithering Knitiot
Enchanting Juno
Jason Knits
Lauren's Knitting
PoMo Golightly
Sheepish Annie
Sweater Project

[Edit: Sorry about the pattern issue, folks. My webhost had some issues, so I've moved the pattern, and it should work fine now. Here you go.]

Being tagged can be fun if not many people tag you. Otherwise, it could become a problem, like a small pebble in your shoe.

On a different note, I have tried to download your wonderful pattern of the "greenery hat", but am unable to get the file. I have tried on both an Apple and HP. Could you let me know what the problem is...your end or mine? I would love to give it a try. Cables are not usually my "thing" but your hat looks beautiful.

I'm gonna do one big meme over the weekend to cover the tags! I'm really good with "random!" (maybe a little too good...I should really get more focused!) But a Random Things tag means I can go with my strengths, right? ;)

I wanted to let you know that I played along and posted my random things here: http://www.intertext.com/lauren/2007/05/tagged.html
