Betsy of 2ktog was my secret pal. She had a little capsule message that said "Your Secret Pal has been Betsy from 2KTOG! You snoop, you knew!"
Ah yes. I suspected. *BIG GRIN* and it wasn't even due to snooping. It was because chicknits, a very famous blog, linked to their blog and I visited that link and said, whoa, this is just like my secret pal. I admit I snooped a tiny bit, but this just fell into my lap. Don't hate me for it :) All this aside, Betsy sent a lot of surprises my way and my eyes haven't lost their saucer-like look yet.
Betsy, once again, spot on. I have the Real Simple Mag on my wishlist :)! I've wanted it for more than a year! (I hope no one purchased it for me for xmas. hehehe. We seem to do a lot of gift "claiming". Some people call shotgun. We call gifts.) The colorful tape measure can be purchased at the container store. She made me stitch markers will little bells on them! PERFECT. Now I might be able to find them when I drop them! There's a staple-less stapler. Betsy. My friends are laughing out loud right now. I'm known as "the Stapler Queen" to my friends because, well, let me say that staplers amuse me. Greatly. They're laughing even more because I love a Japanese Stationary which carries this particular type of stapler :) and all sorts of fun office gadgets (eraser sweeper cars!). Yes, the cute little book is also funny as it is Mr. Nosey. Hehe.
Thanks ever so much Betsy/Blanca. Secret Pal 3 was such a hoot. Soo much fun. Have a great holiday season! I'm still working on ideas for the alpaca silk and trying to make sure I don't drool on it. My friends agree, especially when we go to the yarn store and pet their alpaca silk, that you so rock. Funny story- my friend Robin, a total non-knitter, went to the yarn store to pick out yarn for me. Is this friendship or what? Even after I listed several books and a wishlist she still gets me the hardest gift of all- yarn. Anyhow, she's standing in this yarn store and basically is whimpering. This is funny. She knows nothing about yarn other than what we force fed her in a round-trip car ride to Vancouver from Seattle. She was whimpering in the car, then, too. Such a brave brave friend! Thanks Robin! Now I just have to figure out what to get her! (I think I know I think I know.)
Starbucks must be getting rich off the knitters who are frantically knitting around the clock. Me? I'm taking the febreeze to vegas with the yarn.
