The Sixty Four Thousand Dollar Question

Is there a British currency equivalent to that statement? The million pound question? It doesn’t seem right but it does remind me a little of all the hours I spent profitably expanding my wealth of useless knowledge watching game shows at university (Countdown and Fifteen to One were particular favourites – the latter we got very competitive over). As a hilarious aside, my friend and I once were in a round of The Weakest Link in our student union which  she wound up winning, not because we were able to answer any of the questions but because of our incredible tactical voting using the POWER OF OUR MINDS. I miss being a student, I really do.

Before I start to wallow in my own melancholy (can I blame the weather? I usually do), I should get down to my nub and gist of this post. I have a head full of yarny thoughts (mmm, yarn) which I need to do something about. Having floated the notion with Dessert Sharing Friend the other week, she suggest A POLL. Let’s face it, who doesn’t love a good poll? Largely it’s boiling down to this: my job hunt is going dis-ahhhhh-strously (darlings), seriously I could paper my entire house with my rejections. So I’m thinking around my box a little to try and retain a modicum of sanity. And eating Wotsits as an aid to thinking (whilst playing our current favourite office game: films my boss hasn’t seen).

Turns out, it’s not so much a poll (polldaddy, y u hate me?) but a series of questions – answers in comments please.

1.       Should I start a yarny sideline specialising in ballet knits?

  • Yes, it would be ace
  • No, it’s the worst idea you’ve ever had in all your days
  • Be quiet, Nellie

2.       If I did, would you buy things from me?

  • Yes, where have you been all my life?
  • No, I have better things to spend my hard earned pennies on
  • Be quiet, Nellie

 3.       If yes, what would you buy?

  • Legwarmers
  • Bun covers
  • Shoe bags
  • Socks
  • Other things, please be specific
  •  Be quiet, Nellie

 4.       So you’re parting with your hard earned cash, would you prefer:

  • Something bespoke to your exacting standards (yarn type, colour, pattern etc)
  • A choice of premade goodies available somewhere like Folksy
  • Something somewhere happily between the two
  •  Be quiet, Nellie

 5.       Please state your preferred method of payment:

  • Coins of the realm
  • All major credit cards
  • Gin
  • Cake
  • Tea

 6.       Bonus question: what’s that coming over the hill is it a…

  • Monster
  • Llama

Thoughts, comments, suggestions, motivational kicks up the backside all welcome (some of my knitting can be seen through the ‘knitting’ tag). I’ve finished my Wotsits, ascertained that my boss hasn’t seen BoredLord of the Rings and failed to shrink my to do list using only the power of my mind… Time to crack on, not least because I keep forgetting I’m not at work tomorrow because I am going TO THE OLYMPICS. Seriously, so excited I could eat my desk. On which note, it is probably time for more tea.
