I've been tagged!

So, Aastrikke tagged me for a random things meme...

8 Very Random Things

Once tagged, you must link to the person who tagged you. Then post the rules before your list, and list 8 random things about yourself. At the end of the post, you must tag and link to 8 other people, visit their sites, and leave a comment letting them know they’ve been tagged.

1.) I'm now so pretty much in love with Beautiful Katamari. It's not a complicated game, and I never imagined this would be a series I'd get into; something about just rolling balls didn't seem that appealing. It is incredibly appealing, though! I imagine much of the appeal comes from the colorful happiness of it all. I like the online play too, but just wish more people would play. I'm Velvet Mudkips if anyone out there wants to friend me and roll some balls. I played with some random people, and squealed with delight when one of them wanted to be my xbox live friend!

2.) My cats have a thing for DPNs. First it was the clovers... then the brittanys... If I didn't love them so much, I'd have kicked Blackcat to the curb for chewing the tips off one of my knitpicks harmony wood needles. Jerk... Lucky for him, he's a wonderful cat other than his penchant for DPNs. As a result, I now have 14 random size 1 DPNs, all in different brands and varying levels of cat-chewedness.

3.) My own yarn buying habits have started to alarm me. I need to knit faster or destash... but when I have gorgeous projects planned for everything here, it's hard to imagine destashing! So, anyone have any tips on how to knit faster?

4.) I made a Fake Aisle hat. I read that they came out small, so mine came out huge. Who wants a hat? This is the second hat I've made pretty darned big on accident; the other was for a co-worker and I promised to fix it... and then never did...

5.) I like to knit for gifts. When people don't like the same colors as me, it gives me an excuse to go to the yarn shop somewhat guilt-free.

6.) I did not dress up for Halloween this year, unless you count my obnoxious orange blouse and black pants. Truthfully, it makes me feel pretty boring and a bit sad. I'm not really into Halloween like I used to be.

7.) I've decided that I'm going to reward myself with a new bodymod of some variety once I'm through this first semester of classes. Tattoo? Hideable piercing? It has to be of the variety that won't keep me from getting a summer job... Or a job when I graduate, for that matter. Why did I pick a somewhat conservative profession, again?

8.) I don't think I'm going to be buying Guitar Hero III, even though I love Guitar Hero II. I played a friend's copy this past weekend. The sexist portrayal of female characters and product placement really turns me off to something I'd otherwise love. My favorite character from II (Pandora) is gone, and my second-favorite (Judy) has turned into... a freak? This commentary explains my frustration better than I could.

I tag, um... whoever wants to do it! (Cop out, yes.)

My yarn buying habits are starting to alarm me as well. I've just been buying things left & right lately, although I really do have things in mind for all of them. Really.

Want to go to Threadbear's movie night on Saturday? That will help use up a little of the stash & we'll go right at 6 so we can't buy anything.
