Got nuthin; must do meme.
Ten Random Things (stolen from Knitiot Savant)
1. Magazines subscribed to: Um. U.S. News & World Report. I have subscribed to lots of magazines -- New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, Harper's Bazaar, Time, PC World, Fortune, Herb Companion, Fine Gardening, Green Thumb, Green Prints (The Weeder's Digest), Nation (not all at the same time) -- but I found that it had become a burden to read them. So I let them lapse.
2. Aside from knitting, my favorite pastimes are - Reading, preferably with a cat on my lap/chest, playing around on the internet, hanging out with my family.
3. If I were not an accountant (insert your own profession) I would be: Once upon a time my choice would have been dancer. Now, it would be forensic something-or-other or computer guru.
4. I am irrationally worried about - I don't worry much. My only irrational fear is that the semi in front of me on the freeway won't quite fit under the underpass coming up, and its load will end up on top of my car. This seems especially likely to happen when the semi is a flatbed with a great whack of stuff strapped to it, like Christmas trees or huge bales of hay. How do I know the guy that loaded it actually measured to be sure it would fit under that bridge up ahead?
5. If I were the opposite sex - I would make a terrible man. Too cowardly. Although I suppose if I were a man the testosterone would take care of that.
6. The thing I miss most about childhood is - always being The Special One.
7. I like to collect - I don't like to collect things, although I do seem to have acquired a collection of coffee mugs from places I have visited.
8. Though I've never been there, I feel inexplicably homesick for - Tahiti.
9. I've never really liked to eat - peas or beans. Especially lima beans. Or baked beans.
10. When I have nightmares, they're usually about - being in some public situation and not knowing what to do.

Here's a random photo, taken at the hotel at Wisconsin Dells. I must have at least one picture in every post.

* After a little IMDb research I discovered that I was really thinking of Kate Mulgrew, the actress that played the captain on Star Trek: Voyager. These random muttering things are challenging.
