it's here! and memememe!!

lendrum

Meet my Lendrum DT...unnamed, unused - this is it for now. I will just gaze at her in wonder. I'll share something when (and if) I have something to share:)

Meanwhile I was over at two knits of ivory , Morticcia had this little memory lane meme...I couldn't help it.

Who was your first prom date?
Travis, a wonderful friend - he wanted to be more than friends, but shucks - he was so darn nice - we had the most fun being silly. I occasionally see him, and it just makes my day.

Do you still talk to your first love?
nope - however, I do run into his sister occasionally who is compelled to fill me on on what's going on with him and his family - I think she tells him what I am up to also - so vicariously, maybe.

What was your first alcoholic drink? I'm going to guess Sun Country Wine Cooler out of the 2-liter bottle - am I dating myself? hee hee

What was your first job for pay?
Frosty's Frozen Custard - it was such good fun. The boss's son now owns the place and we share giggles occasionally - he remembers when I dumped a full mop bucket over at closing time - it comes up everytime I see him, ineveitably. I called him some expletives because he laughed at me in 1987!

What was your first car?
1982 Buick Skylark - two toned, dark blue on the bottom, ecru on the top - the tires squealed like a mo fo - that's what I would have said at 18. I got a humongous speeing ticket in it, I'd had my license 2 weeks. The District Attorney gave me a break (as much as he could, seriously, 36 miles over - eep - the speedometer really didn't work, but come on...) - I now work with that DA pretty regularly as part of my job - weird.

Who was the first person to text you today?
My sister - she is the Queen of the texts in the family - she's just a girl compared to me:)

Who is the first person you thought of this morning?
My grandma - who is doing awesome post-surgery. Thank you so much for your prayers and kind words!

Who was your first grade teacher?
Mrs. Strom in Fort Atkinson, WI - she let me bring the Kiss Destroyer album cover for show and tell - that's a coool lady.

Where did you go on your first ride on an airplane?
Florida, on my honeymoon.

Who was your first best friend and are you still friends?
Tammi - we met the first day of kindergarten. I wouldn't call us "friends" anymore - we exchange holiday cards now.

What was your first sport played?Softball my freshman year - I stayed with it until I was a senior - I was not Varsity material - I thought it was a "game" and didn't get all sad when we lost - didn't jive with the rest of the gals...

Who was the first person you talked to this morning?
My husband...

Whose wedding were you first in?
Tammi's - maybe we were closer 14 years ago, huh?:) But I did always wonder why I was in it.

What was the first thing you did this morning?
Woke up thankful my grandma is doing well.

What was the first concert you went to?
AC/DC Blow up Your Video in 1988 with my friend (and prom date) Travis - at the Coliseum in MAdison, WI - omg, it rocked! The guy next to me got busted for pot in the parking lot - I was such a good girl, he scared me. Now I supervise people like him - poetic, huh? And seriously, I have learned pot isn't the worst crime in the world, unfortunately.

What was your first tattoo or piercing?
I got my ears pierced in 6th grade.

What was your first run in with the law?
I hid under a manure spreader at a party that was raided when I was in 10th grade - mind you, I hadn't drank a drop - but aforesaid first boyfriend had - so we hid for an hour. By the way - I was the ONLY kid at the party who got grounded - My mom had to pick me and dragged me by the hood to the cops to find out what was going on - I was grounded for "not calling when the alcohol came out". Hence why I was such a good kid - I had no choice!:) (okay, okay, I made some bad choices now and then...)

Who was your first roommate?
Other than my sister - My first unknown roommate in college bailed before we got started - not sure what happened, so a highschool peer who was looking to get out of the house, and happened to be going to UW-Whitewater moved in. BIGGEST mistake - she was awful - her boyfriend stayed all the time and got mad when I would be up typing homework - hello, my room too!

Where did you go in your first limo ride?
From church to my wedding reception:)

With that - I wish you all good night! Thank you again for your kind words about my grandma - Everything went so well - she is a champ! I knit so much in the hospital, it is the first time I went to bed with a sore wrist. I am 1/2 into a sleeve in my February Ladies Sweater - and think the damn thing is going to be too small - so here's to some serious blocking...my mom is littler than me, and said "oh, my favorite color" - maybe her wish will come true - doh!:0

Are we separated at birth? LOL.

What a gorgeous, fabulous, picaresque wheel! You must be sooo thrilled. I can't wait to pick up some BFL at the next fiber festival and try it out.

Can't wait to see your first hand spun.

Oh, I'm so glad your "Gramma" is doing well. How exciting - a new venture. I can't wait to see what you do with it. Your meme was very well done. I think this is one I actually like! As for the sweater, just think, you get to make another!

Wine cooler from a 2-liter, Kiss Destroyer, hiding under a manure spreader, a knitter and now a spinner…

I have to say, you ROCK in every way, Peaknit.

I want to party with YOU!!! ;D

Lovely, gorgeous wheel. Of course, I know nothing about wheels, but I think it's pretty anyway. :)

Fun meme, too! I was definitely a goody-goody, as well. :) Can't wait to see your handspun!

Love the wheel - how exciting for you! Love the meme stories too... manure spreader - HAHA! I work with a couple of those....

OMG, that's so exciting! Can't wait to see what you do with it!

(I'm so itching for a wheel of my own... developed a scheme where I "pay myself" for destashing! Each knitted/crocheted item has a price and for each project completed from stash I get that much toward my wheel! And of course, I lose money for each yarn/fiber purchase... Hopefully I'll be joining you in the land of handspun soon!)

Congrats!
