So, I'm a bad bad blogger. I somehow missed it when Mel tagged me for this meme:
10 years ago: I was in the fall of my junior year of high school, getting ready to do The Nutcracker and practicing my little toes off.
5 years ago:I was getting ready to graduate from college (for the first time), and working two jobs at the same place in the nutzo Christmas retail season.
1 year ago:The Man and I had just gotten married, I was looking for a Christmas retail job (AGAIN), writing papers, etc.

This one has made the rounds - but if you haven't done it, consider yourself tagged!
Now, if you've hung around through all that boring crap, I'm sad to report that I still have no FO pictures for you - damn sunlight again.
But I do have an interactive activity! The Man recently came into a bit of money (those of you in the know - he sold off the unused color from his glassblowing days), and was deciding what to do with it. He wants this. I did bend his arm into allowing me to get a tiny present. I asked for Handknit Holidays which he agreed to, and then I laid it on thick. I want a Ribby Cardi, and I don't have the yarn for it. He hemmed and hawed, and then said "Go order your yarn." Woo Hoo!
But here's the kicker. I can't decide what color to use! So, a fun vote! (BTW, the colors can be seen here.)
Damn blogpoll won't be "accepted" by blogger - so you'll have to vote in the comments - Choices are:
Vote early, vote often! Lots of pictures tomorrow!
