Meme Virgin (blush, blush)

Miss Shortly was kind enough to tag me for this meme. This is the first I have ever done. Yep I'm a meme virgin.. So let's see how this goes...

The rules:1. Respond and rework; answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention, add one more question of your own.2. Tag eight other people.

What is your current obsession?
Hmmm I'm not sure what my current obsession is? (Great answer, huh? Are you still following this? I better think of something, 'cuz I can already see some of you starting to look for another blog to read) I seem to have a few irons in the fire right now. So maybe I should answer my current obsession is trying to get time when I'm not dead tired to do some of the crafts I am working on. So the short answer is: time

What is your weirdest obsession?
I would have answer the whole time thing again. It seems odd to be obsessed with trying to get some quiet time to be able to concentrate on something. But I guess it being odd automatically qualifies it for being weird.

What are you wearing today?
This one is easy since it's 12:12 am here I'm in my pj's.

What’s for dinner?
I wish I could wow you with some grand culinary creation, but this evening was just simple comfort food. Fried chicken breast, mashed cheesy potatoes and celery.

What would you eat for your last meal?
Hmmm....fresh steamed crab and clams with some fresh sour dough bread in a comfy setting near the ocean.

What’s the last thing you bought?
Do you mean besides groceries? I bought some cording for the new Infi-knity bags we've made to add to our shop.(tease, tease, tease)

What are you listening to right now?
The quiet of the house and the fan. Ahhh it's wonderful.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
I would go home to Pacific Grove. I would drive along the ocean find a spot get out and sit on a rock and just watch the waves roll in. And being the huge sap I am would probably cry. I know I'm such a goob!

Which language do you want to learn?
I would love to learn French. Even if my Dh and The Boy would think I was completely nutters.

What do you love most about where you currently live?
This is the question that I am deleting. Simply because try as I might I can't figure out anything to love about this place. Shameful I know.

My replacement question...

What style is your current home decorated in?
I wish I could respond with something cool like cottage, vintage or even shabby chic. But the truth is, our small home is currently decorated to accommodate the wee ones. So I would say a whirling dervish style.

What is your favorite colour?
I don't really have a favorite colour. Never have. I go through periods of liking color ways. Such as earthy colors, cool colors, hot colors, things like that. Right now I'm liking the earthy and cool color ways.

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
My poor wardrobe is currently in need of being rejuvenated. So I don't really have a favorite piece.

What were you doing ten years ago?
This time, 10 years ago, we had just moved up to Western Washington. I was getting acclimated to the area.

Describe your personal style?
Eclectic and comfortable

If you had $300 now, what would you spend it on?
I would get a few new pieces of clothing for all of the family and some new yarn. Yep I could do it too.

What are you going to do after this?
Fall into bed a drift off to sleep. Although I should do some knitting. Or put the finishing touches on some projects I'm working on or take some photos for the Etsy store. Or.....

What are your favourite films?
I actually have quite a few. Majority of them are older movies. To list a few of them: Arsenic and Old Lace, Rear Window, Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep, Thin Man movies, Enchanted April, French Kiss, oh and Chocolat of course.

What inspires you?
Colors, music, my children, other artists.

Your favourite books?
There is one book that has stayed with me through the years Prince Ombra
by Roderick MacLeish. I think I was always taken with the concept of where he considers evil to reside. I won't say anymore as not to give away to much information. Why yes. Yes I am a tease, thank you. That being said I also have enjoyed other books that I love just as much. Such as Count of Monte Cristo, The Death gate Cycle books, James Patterson's When the Wind Blows and the other books in this series.

Do you collect anything?
I collect fairies and elves. Or should I say they collect me. I have a few that are sitting around in my house. I shall write a post about them soon and introduce you to them. I also seem to collect craft supplies. One never knows when ones is going to need tiny corks or brightly colored feathers.

What makes you follow a blog?
Wit and warmth.

What was the most enjoyable thing you did today?
I know this is probably going to sound contrite. Give hugs, cuddles and kisses to my wee ones right before they went to bed.

What is your favourite FO and why?
I would say the Tulip dolls I created. I enjoyed knitting them and it was grand fun to be able to watch their personalities
develop when I was finishing them.

So for the tagging of eight others;
