→ What song are you currently addicted to?
No particular song, but I was playing the Baltimore Consort's La Rocque 'n' Roll over and over and over this weekend ... it was such perfect background music for my reading.

→ What's your favorite season?
Fall. I live in a place that laughs at the calendar and the concept of a regular progression of season, but fall always seems to happen properly, with crisp nights and comfortably cool days.

→ What’s the latest movie you watched?
The Warlords

→ What is the one skill you wish you had?
The ability to sing on key. I love music and have an excellent memory for lyrics and tunes, but can't sing worth a damn. :-(

→ What’s your current fandom/obsession/addiction?
Knitting. A craft I taught myself over thirty years ago, but that is finally coming into its heyday now, with a wealth of high-end materials and tools. I want to take full advantage of the popularity while it lasts.

→ What's your favorite musical instrument?
Bagpipes. Played properly, raw with soul and emotion, not in a ***shudder*** pipe band.

→ What Web sites do you always visit when you go online?
LJ. Ravelry. Daily Jigsaw. BBC7. The Globe and Mail

→ What was the last thing you bought?

→ If you won 10,000 bucks today, what would you do with it?
I honestly don't know ...

→ Most awesome book ever?
Seeing as I'm a cataloguer, that can change frequently. So we'll go with my latest read, which was darned impressive: "The Bird of the River" by Kage Baker. (Or, if you'd prefer the book I reread the most because Death's philosophizing on humans and life really is impressive: "Hogfather" by Terry Pratchett)

→ What's the last thing that made you happy?
So may little things do that, one after the other. Today I learned that a friend/co-worker finally got in for long-awaited surgery for ruptured tendons. And tonight I've been watching a "Last of the Summer Wine" DVD ... something I always find very uplifting. ("Vintage 1977" for anybody who's wondering ...)

→ Do you want to learn another language?
Regaining my lost French would be nice. So would actually comprehending the Irish and Scottish gaelics instead of just knowing how to pronounce them. However, at the moment, mastering Polish would be the most useful ... give me an inside track with the "Polish Mafia" at work. ;p

Tag! You're it!
