I must apologize for my self-imposed exile from the blog world. I've been suffering from insomnia for a few months and lately I've just been too tired to string word together into a coherent sentence. And even if my brain was still functioning on such a high level by the end of the day, I was too tired to actually type that sentence. And let's not even mention the fact that the aforementioned sentence must be clever and witty. I just wasn't up to the task.
I love bloggers. I've received polite inquiries via e-mail, knitty, and a phone call from my Mom saying she's sick of looking at the ugly brown sweater and could I post some pictures of her Grandchildren for goodness sakes. So here Mom, these are for you.
Thanks for all the love.
Yet despite these efforts still I remained silent. I didn't post progress of Evil, for there was progress. Or the issues of Evil, for there are issues. Nor did I post on my Shetland Shawl, or my new job, or the nefarious quintet of scarves. Silent I remained. The longer I remained silent the harder it seemed to commence blogging again. I didn't know where to start. Do I begin where I left off with Evil, or the scarves or *gasp* my son's third birthday? Do I mention my silence, or act like nothing happened. I couldn't find the words to start.
Then Kim pulled me out of my silence with the only thing I can not resist. She tagged me for a meme. I just love being tagged. So here I go.
4 jobs you've had:
Regional Manager for a company that provide Shared Office Space (my only impressive title)
Filling waffle cones at TCBY
1st drive-thru window at McDonald (they always let me work the drive-thru, otherwise I was rude to the customers. I loved the first window because I took orders, handled money, but never had to touch the food)
4 movies you can (and have) watched over and over:
An American President
13 going on 30
(what can I say, I like fluff movies)
4 TV shows you love to watch:
Days of our Lives/Passions
(what can I say, I like fluff tv)
4 places you've lived:
Moreno Valley, CA
4 places you've been on vacation:

New York (1997)
That's basically it. I really need a vacation
4 websites you visit daily:

Go Fug Yourself
My playgroup's website
4 of your favorite foods:
The Greatest's mashed potatoes
Ice cream, really any kind
Milk shakes (again almost any kind)
Chicken cooked in lemon juice with fresh steamed broccoli on the side
4 places you'd rather be right now:
In bed asleep
On vacation either
~Disney World if it's the entire family
~The Mediterranean if it's just me and The Greatest
~a fancy hotel with cable and room service with a yarn shop around the corner if I'm *gasp* all by myself and left to my own devices
(that counts as four different places right?)
So there you go. The meme of fours. I don't know who's been tagged by this already, so hey if you're here and you wanna take it out for a spin go for it.
And now that I've broken the ice and entered the murky underworld of knitting blogs once again I promise to return soon. Maybe even with knitting progress. Imagine that. Knitting on a knitting blog.
