q&a: II

In an effort to keep going with this blogtober thing a bit longer before I admit defeat, I'm going to repeat the q&a session I did over two years ago (only with different questions, natch).

Ask me a question, any question, and I'll see what I can do.

Son #1's handiwork

That wooden bowl was Son #1's Fathers Day present to his dad. He carved it out of a block of wood at school. It's quite beautiful, and smooth as a baby's bum.

India Daisy said...

what do you do as a career? besides knit?

Prism said...

Any chance you might come to Ohio, USA? I could hook you up with some AMAZING yarn! Barring that, how would you feel about a very long distance swap?

1. what's your favorite breakfast cereal?
2. how do you drink your coffee?
3. Caramel TimTams vs. Original TimTams: Is it possible to neatly slam a caramel TimTam? Does the resulting mess even matter compared to slamming a regular TT? Discuss.
4. Can we talk about candy bars? You guys have Cherry Ripes - I could eat those ALL DAY LONG. Why don't Americans have better coconut candy bars? What are your most/least favs?(I guess that's all several questions...)
5. I LOVE this blogging everyday thing from you. But I know you're back at school/work. When can we skype? I bought a microphone so you can hear my silly accent
: )

Suse and BabelBabe--what the heck is a "TimTam" (or for that matter, a Cherry Ripe)? Delicious sounding names, I want details!

When my sister and I went to England we mostly brought back candy for souvenirs--a whole suitcase full! We just love trying all the different variations!

Do you have a fail safe quick supper when everyone's tired and hungry ....and you're the tiredest and hungriest of them all ?

Jeans or skirts?

What surprising thing made you smile this week?

Janet said...

I know this is a dumb question but what does "natch" mean? I think it's a term that has passed me by....

I love the bowl your son made, very clever and beautiful.

Meggie said...

Love that wooden bowl!

Bells said...

what's your next big knitting project you're longing to get started on?

Heat of the summer or cool of the winter? Why?

Penni said...

What sort of cake, biscuit or other would you make if you had hazelnut meal in the house?

If you had a girl baby, what would you call her?

gis said...

Tim tams are OK, but what do you think about the other ones with mint (can't recall the name, but they are from Arnotts ;-))? Why are we (almost) all talking about food and sweets, at least as second favourite topic after crafting?

PS Checked the web, they are called mint slices?
The bowl is really cute!

If you didn't live in Victoria, where would you live?

How long have you ever left the household detritus just pile up and spill over while you indulged in a book, some sewing or some knitting. Days? Weeks? Hours? or never.

cexecat said...

How have the recent bushfires affected the way you feel about living in the bush? Do you still love it? Do you feel safe? Do you feel stronger as a community, or more vulnerable?

And Steiner schools... do you think it has made a difference to your kids and the way they see themselves and the world? How much do you think kids are influenced by schooling as opposed to home life?

I love reading your posts and looking at your photos! Always delightful and witty...

Favourite Elvis Costello song? Comparison to your choice of (a) Paul Kelly and/or (b) Nick Cave?

Stacey said...

Is it too late to ask a question? Hope not.

Robert Downey Jr. versus Alan Rickman. Discuss.

Is there anything you'd never knit again or a yarn you'd never recommend to a friend?
