14. What would you like your pal to know that is not covered here?
I’m an open book, just ask if you want to know something.
Read my blog and you will see the other side of me and realize that it’s ok to be different. If you think you know me by this list of questions, think again. I temper my thoughts a little on my blog out of respect to some of the extraordinary ladies who read my ramblings because I feel I should. (I know it's mostly ladies who knit and read knit blogs) I remain true to my self but there are certain things I would rather not to discuss here because it is a Craft/Music blog.


  1. Beach Boys are *not* a guilty pleasure, sir! Not in my world, anyway. [George Michael's "Faith", now *that's* a guilty pleasure, LOL.] And doo-wop is the greatest!

  2. little known bands that rock. . . check out they opened up for Flogging Molly last night here in Norfolk and they were AWESOME! (not as good as flogging molly, of course!)

    Hello! It is nice to "meet" you. I looked in my inbox today and you were paired as my Swap Pal. I have never had a guy as a pal before so this is really cool. Knitting/crafting from a male perspective.

    I will try to keep myself a secret until the first box is sent, but I really really suck at it. I have revealed myself more often than not, unfortunately.

    Anyway, I will be in touch. In the meantime I look forward to popping in and seeing what you are up to.

  4. Will you tell Mrs. Twisted for me that her suggestion was really helpful? I found two new tutoring jobs to apply to so far!
