Two Truths And A Lie

  1. I introduced an internet savvy college student to Ravelry this week.
  2. My gifts are bought, wrapped and all settled under the decorated tree.
  3. I watch The Wendy Williams Show every single day.

Can you guess which is the lie?

  • When N and I walked into his Korean Culture group I noticed one of the college students knitting! She was casually standing there knitting a pretty pink cabled scarf which she later told me was for her sister. I was so stunned. A real live knitter where I didn’t expect one. I told her that I knit too and asked the universal question “Are you on Ravelry?” Imagine my shock when she didn’t know what it was. I quickly showed her, got her signed up and friended. She said she now knew what she would be doing on Christmas break.
  • The Lie: I did order my gifts but they haven’t arrived yet. There is gift wrap, I think, in a box in the basement. The tree photo is strictly historical. The tree is still in it’s box in the basement. We should be ready, maybe.
  • I blame my genes. I have an innate curiosity about people and a need to hear about celebrities. My grandmother was a faithful reader of all movie star magazines and a lover of The Enquirer. My mother liked TMZ. I try to limit my celebrity gossip to The Wendy Williams Show (How you doin’?) and reading People magazine at the dentist.

    Oh, how funny! I thought the Wendy Williams show was a lie. I get shocked too when I learn a crafter isn’t on Rav. Yay on another joinin’ our world.

    This is pretty awesome. I like your historical photo. hehe.

    I may like some celebrity gossip a little more than I should. I have a few online resources I probably shouldn’t fuss with as much as I do. I blame my mother for having all those magazines around when I was a kid.

    Ravelry makes me happy to no end. I admit to wearing my ravelry hoodie to the gym with lots o’ pride.

    That’s so cool that you got someone else “hooked” on Ravelry! 🙂 I’m not real big on celebrity gossip, so I don’t even know what the Wendy Williams show is! If your tree isn’t up yet, I can come help – I helped my friend in Phoenix decorate her tree while I was there and it came out pretty decent! I’m also available for gift wrapping – but not for cooking and baking – sorry, I have my limits – ha!
