Say hello to my little friends

**ETA: Here's the link for the J&M drives if you'd like to get your own!**

Everyone, Jack and Meg. Jack and Meg, everyone.

Nate and I like the White Stripes so much that we bought little Jack and Meg jump drives with the new album on it. We're nuts, but I accept that. I'm officially moving all the stuff on my current jump drive (resume, cover letter, knitting patterns, stash photos...important stuff) to Meg and she's going to get to go everywhere with me. So fun.

***Also, try to catch tomorrow's Live Earth concert! I don't know that the White Stripes are involved, but I'll watch some of it anyway. Bless that Al Gore, man, he's doing such good work.***

In addition to drawing contest winners on the 4th, Nate and I spent the day with his parents and their organic garden. We brought home this huge basket of tomatoes (for homemade spaghetti sauce and general yumminess), some peppers, gourds, zucchini and squash. YUM. There's really nothing like veggies fresh from the garden to your plate the same day.

And because I'm a little nuts I joined the Punk Rock Gift Exchange (mini version) and Mystery Stole 3. Cause I totally have time to knit a shawl-like garment. Right. But it has BEADS! Sigh.

Here's the PRGE questionnaire for my pal:

1. Why are you punk?
My punkness is more indicated by my political and spiritual belief system than is represented by what I might choose to wear on any given day, though I used to dress punk and had a few piercings way back when. I believe in individual rights, yet I'm probably a socialist deep down. The two intermingle for me because I think everyone should be given the same basic rights, freedoms and starting points so that they *can* pursue their own thing. I believe in a creator, but I dislike religions, and I married an atheist. I also dig punk music. :)

2. What are your five favorite things? (these don't have to be knit related)
Dark chocolate. Music. Yarn. Reading. Good movies.

3. What are your three favorite things that you have made with knitting/crochet?
Socks, My So Called Scarf, and Shedir

4. What five things would you love to see in a swap box someday?
I'm a geek for stitch markers and Knit Picks circular needles (I could use some 32" US2s real bad), and/or some yarn of course. Something cool from wherever my pal is from would rock!

5. What are your three favorite yarns? What are your three least favorite yarns?
I'm really enjoying working with Cotton Fleece right now. I also like Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, Cascade Sierra and Malabrigio. Least favorites...anything really scratchy, acrylic, and fun fur.

6. What are your five favorite delicacies?
Chunky Monkey (please don't send me ice cream :P), dark chocolate, tiramisu, uh...yarn and yarn?

7. What are your three favorite guilty pleasures?
Really? So not telling. They're guilty pleasures for a reason :)

(ok ok...chocolate truffles, looking at baby names (shaddup), and Hello Kitty)

8. What would you like your pal to know that is not covered here?
I'm pretty easy to please, and I like all colors except yellow and orange (for me, I like them on other people). My favorites are pinks, blues, reds and purples, but not necessarily all together.

p.s...I'm offering 10% off to all PRGE folks!

p.p.s. I've been waking up with the weirdest songs in my head all week. This morning's theme was the Imperial March from Star Wars. And it won't go away. Egads.

ppps(?) Also, is it strange that I'm exhausted by 11pm on the weekends, but I can cruise effortlessly to 3am on the weeknights? So bizarre.
