Back from NYC and meme

Amanda tagged me for the "six random things about me" meme. I'm always very interested to read other peoples' lists, but I struggle a lot with mine.

Anyway, here are the rules:
  • Link to the person who tagged you.
  • Post the rules on your blog.
  • Write six random things about yourself.
  • Tag six people at the end of your post.
  • Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
  • Let the tagger know your entry is up.

Six random things about me:
  1. Right now I'm hooked on Life on Mars.
  2. I still can't do a headstand in yoga in the middle of the room (only against the wall).
  3. I'm very shy
  4. I can make a mean curry
  5. I love kiwis even though I'm mildly allergic to them
  6. My favourite compliment, from one of my students, was that I was "simultaneously the most laidback and the most strict" professor

I'm tagging:

I went to NYC for the weekend, to interview some artists for an article I'm writing. They're interested in how biology affects art; specifically, in how the biology of the eye shapes aesthetics. I love these interviews where they leave me with a lot of new things to think about.

Aside from that, I saw friends and family, and went to a gig on Saturday night. The band was supposed to go on at 11pm, but they didn't go on until 1:30am. I was so exhausted at that point that I was just leaning against Rog, and I fell asleep. Apparently I kept waking up and saying, "I think she's forgotten the lyrics." Needless to say, she hadn't forgotten the lyrics, it just seemed like it in my dreaming state.

Oh, and I finally gave the Secret Project - the Drops A Line Sweater - to my mother. She said she liked it, and I think it looked nice on her!

I didn't put her face in the pic, because I know she wouldn't like it.

I just have the sleeves left on my Luna Dress. I'm going to try to do them from the top down (rather than the cuffs), so as to avoid sewing. I got the go ahead from my pals at the hoxton knitting group yesterday, so I feel a bit more confident about straying from the pattern.

Thanks for the tag - have attempted my first meme. Although brevity has never been a talent of mine, so my random list is a little rambling...!

my meme is up.
Your Mom's sweater looks good. I bet she really loved it.
