I have CHOSEN!!!

My new name is.......IncogKnito! It has grown on me and I may keep the other names for use some other time some where. I hope Christmas treated all you guys well. I had a fabulous time in Vermont with my family. We may not be a large family, but with the size of the house we stayed in and the amount of people and pets, it was BIG. I would post pictures, but apparently I've misplaced my camera. Thanks again for everyone who participated in the voting (all three of you). I guess I'll have to make up a real poll and post the results as you vote so feel like you're voting in a "real" political poll.

Nicknames stick to people...

...and the most ridiculous are the most adhesive. ~Thomas C. Haliburton

Ta da! I knew you were all waiting breathless with anticipation for my new blog name. You can now get up off the sofa and put the empty ice cream containers in the trash. I suggest you take a shower now too because you're starting to smell. I came up with a few so maybe you guys can vote on them. If you want to share this with other people that might be cool because I think there are about two of you who actually read my blog on a some what regular basis. I tried to stay away from knitting related titles, but that's just who I am so I couldn't stay away from them.

1. IncogKnito (I'm not really incognito because if you ask me I'll tell you I'm a knitter. Of course, I like to tell people upfront right after meeting them so they have no doubts as to the reason for my weirdness).

2. CongeKnital Crafter (many other knitters claim they started knitting from a young age. Most of us feel that we were born with this "condition". I think I might have actually had knitting needles in my hands when I was born. It's much easier to hold them when you're a c-section baby.)

3. Knit for Tat (That's right! You think you're crafty and what you do is cool, but I don't think so. I say "Knit for Tat" when you want to show me up. See if you can trump my ace....or wool as the case might be.)

4. DefiKnitly Gettin' Knit (I don't know what the hell I'm gettin' but I'm definitely gettin' something to do with knit. Knitting speaks to me. Shh! Don't let anyone know I have additional voices talking to me.)

Okay, please cast (pun intended) your votes when you read this. I think I'll open up the polls for about a week and see what you say. I am still trying to change the look of my blog, so hopefully I'll come up with something cool by the time the votes are in. :)

What's My Name?

I DON'T KNOW! I've been racking my brain for the past few weeks and I have absolutely no idea what I should change my blog name to. I wanted it to be creative, but I couldn't think of anything. I wanted something all encompassing that fits me, but alas, I could not think of that either. Most people would describe me as crazy, weird, hyper, energetic, and a bit spastic. At least, those are the words used most often, so I don't know what to put in place of that "Obsessed" part of my title. I will think of something.

In the mean time, I will post some belated Thanksgiving pictures. Jake and I prepared a meager meal, but it was fun none the less. I also managed to burn my hand on the oven which is cool because I have evidence of our first Thanksgiving by ourselves.
Since we made our own rolls from scratch I suggest you look closely at the ones Jake is preparing because they look pretty "special". In fact, they just look retarded. For that reason alone you should pay attention to how he's rolling the dough.

I got free vases of flowers from my place of work and they really added to the holiday decor. Now, they're wilting and decaying in their vases and I haven't thrown them away. Maybe I never will. That's what makes this place home to me.

Just squint your eyes when you look at this one because it's a bit blurry. Or, if you have glasses, take them off and then it won't be my fault that it's blurry.

Incidentally, I LOVE my cranberry sauce from a can. I especially love that it can stay can-shaped when you take it out. There's a nice suction sound when it finally pops out of the can. Love it!

So that was the extent of our dinner. I promise there will be more pictures soon because we have a fun day planned tomorrow. I could eventually post some knitting stuff to taunt you, but I don't think you're ready for what I have to show you. It's much too powerful for one post. : )
