Since I still can't post pictures.....

How 'bout a little meme?

I've been tagged (indirectly) by Rox.

Random Facts

Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write in their blog the 7 facts, as well as the rules. Then those tagged need to tag 7 others.

Here goes:

1. I met Billy Barty some 15 to 20 years ago. ( I think he's dead now)

2. I'm a little over 6 feet tall. (which makes number 1 even funnier!)

3. I love water. Love it. Straight from the tap.

4. I was born at Stanford University. (I was born smart!)

5. My brother is a research scientist and university professor. (he's really the smart one!)

6. I can swallow aspirin, or any pill for that matter, without liquid. (which may seem unnecessary seeing how much I love water!)

7. My favorite movie of all time is Yours, Mine, and Ours. The original with Henry Fonda and Lucille Ball.

Okay, I am tagging.....any 7 of you who want to do it! (I hate naming names!)

I'm good, how are you?

I'm having trouble posting pictures again, so here's a pictureless post, again. (sorry!)

On Saturday my pizza mom friends and I walked in the Revlon Run/Walk for Women's Cancer, along with 50,000 other people. Literally.....FIFTY THOUSAND! Shawn, an amazing mom to 3 boys (Dylan, the oldest, is in Noey's class) is a one year survivor of breast cancer. She asked us if we would walk to support her. So Lori, Lili, and I joined her at the Los Angeles Coliseum for this amazing walk. It was very moving to be in the sea of people, all ages, sizes, colors, genders, walking the streets of LA. It was incredible. We entered the coliseum to the rocking tunes of Pat Benatar and the cheers of the crowd.

Mother's Day was a nice quiet day. Noey had spent the night at my parents Friday night and came home after I got home from the walk. So it was especially sweet to spend time with her alone on Sunday. I really miss her when she's not here. We made cupcakes and goodies for my mom in the morning and then spent the afternoon at my parents house. Noey made me the cutest little keychain and beautiful card. My mom gave me some yarn money and a knitting bag she made.

On the knitting front, the Top Down Bolero just isn't what I want so I will be frogging it soon. I don't know why I can't get it together with the Araucania Patagonia. I guess one day a pattern will speak to me.

So with that off the needles, I cast on a Cotton Summer Cardigan with Cotton Ease in white cuz I reeeeeaaalllly needed a white cardigan right now!

Joe went back to work last week. (Thank God he's finally off the couch!) he's only supposed to work "part time" and so far he's doing pretty good.
