Tagged for 6 weird things......

by two fellow knitters, Knitorious Mrs. B and Canuckooky. Does that mean I need 6 or 12?

1. I wear Birkenstock sandals all year and the only shoes I wear are Birkenstocks... I have 2 pairs of clogs, 1 pair of patent leather slides, 4 pair of sandals with back straps, 3 pair of sandals without backstraps and 1 pair of water sandals and a pair of garden clogs. In the winter, I use socks with whatever I'm wearing.

2. I rather knit or spin than sleep. And often do!

3. More nights than not, I fall asleep in the chair knitting and stay there until my DD wakes me at 5 or so, so I wind up sleeping in my clothes of the previous day... (minus one or two pieces ;-) )

4. I'm ovo-lacto vegetarian, which isn't so weird to some, but others (like my dad) find it amazing that I can live without eating meat (and have 3 healthy babies and raise them without meat as well).

5. I've been either pregnant and/or lactating for the past 92 months and have no clue when that will end.

6. I like my coffee either black, with cream only or with sugar and cream but NOT with sugar only. I drink my tea only with sugar.

THE RULES: Each player of this game starts with the 6 weird things about you. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says you are tagged in their comments and tell them to read your blog.
I wasn't going to tag, but I guess I must. You're it:
1. Subway knitter
2. K1 P1 Keeping You in Stitches
3. Yearns for Yarn
4. Strings 'n Things
5. Stitching, Stitching
6. Strings and Sealing Wax

I think I love 4 and 5 most out of your weird things meme...although I don't find 4 so weird. I think it's cool. :) Have you thought about going full-vegan ever? jw. How long have you been an ovo-lacto vegetarian? I think it's awesome that your children don't eat too! :)

DH can't metabolize animal protein from meat but LOVES cheese... we all love cheese.. .kind of like Wallace of Wallace and Gromit, so we'll probably never go vegan. But DD is really becoming concious of what others eat.
I've bee O-L since about 1986 with a hiatus for a short time in the middle (long story) and I really don't miss it at all!
