33) Do you enjoy getting helpful hints from others or does it just piss you off? Hint away! I can always learn something new.

36) Any books, yarns, needles or patterns out there you are dying to get your hands on? Royal Society Crochet Book No. 17--even a bad Xerox copy.

Their stuff rules! My brother once told me Perversion made me smell like a cheap whore and I told him I wasn't cheap.

Obsidian Kitten said...

Severina said...

Scott, you think anything that doesn't involve cheese stinks. I'll wear the Pizzaria scent special for Xmas.
