When I blogged a lot on LiveJournal, I used to love doing the Friday Five, so I think I'll start doing it again. Maybe then, I'll blog at least a few times a month!
So here is this week's from RevGal:
1) Did you ever have a crush on a teacher?
I don't think so.
2) Who was your first crush?
On TV, it was David Bowie. Then Simon LeBon. I really like(d) British singers.
3) Have you ever given a gift to a crush?
4) Do you have a celebrity crush?
My nerd crush is Ira Glass from "This American Life." My singer crush is Damien Rice.
5) Have you ever been surprised to find yourself the crushee?
I can't think of it ever actually being a big deal. I think a few friends have drunkenly confessed crushes at some point, but nothing surprising.
In knitting news, I'm still working at a snail's pace with anything that matters... I just finished an order of four dishcloths last night. I have an order for two Christmas stockings that I really need to work on. I want to get them done before too long. We'll see though, the next few weeks are going to be insane. I also have a hat to knit for a friend and 2 sweaters I'd like to finish (one just needs sleeves [3/4 length with worsted and size 10 needles! It should take an evening!] and the other needs sleeves and the yoke).
I honestly have no idea what to do for the Christmas gifts this year. I have no money at all... I have a few things taken care of already, but I have nothing for quite a few people. I'm just going to look through my stash and see what I can come up with.
I have a lot of reading to do and papers to write. I have a 12-15 page paper for my Tudors class due on Wednesday. Somehow this week of Thanksgiving break really slipped away from me. I got nothing done all week. I don't really know what happened. I started doing some reading last night and I'm happy with the subject I've chosen, but I just have so much research to do still. I have a big paper for my Women's History class, as well as two 3-4 page essays. I have no idea what to write my paper on for that... I've been watching Mad Men, so I was thinking about something with women in advertising in the 1960's. Then a paper for Japanese History. Just a little bit of work...
