roarin' leos


Simon's a Leo. I'm a Leo. And for whatever reason, it seems like just about everyone* who reads this blog is a Leo, too. Or, as someone at Stitch & Bitch pointed out, maybe it's just that only the Leos leave comments. I don't know which - all you Leos can leave a comment and tell me what you think.

We know this because this is the kind of vital information that Blogger collects about people. Whenever you click over to someone's profile, the first thing you see is their astrological sign. What's the deal, Blogger? Are they selling star charts on the side? Are they keeping statistics on which signs leave the most comments? Which lurk the longest without revealing themselves?

At any rate, it seems like any time some cute new person leaves a comment and I go investigating to see who they are, they are a Leo. Is this a personality trait, or just how the stars align on this particular location?

Knitting-related update: My green striped socks love the magic loop. I'm a little worried that my warm, stable relationship with bamboo knitting needles is being displaced by a passionate affair with some hot Addi Turbos. They're sexy and metallic, expensive and a little bit dangerous... and I can't stop knitting with them. I brought them to work today and I'm having a hard time concentrating on writing a grant proposal with those slinky Addi Turbos sitting just inside my bag, begging to be picked up and stroked - uh, knitted with. (cough).

*Everyone, meaning, everyone who isn't reading out of friendship-related compulsion. I know y'all aren't Leos - if you were one of our giant egos would have rolled over and crushed someone to death by now.

  1. never got the whole astrological thing... we should start teaching it in school alongside intelligent design... heh.

    i do have to go look and see who leaves comments...but it is at this point only my friends...

    i have blogger style envy... you know...those people with the super duper stylish sites... i get so jealous... it's like wanting to be friends with the cool kids. i want to be cool too.

    a cancer,
    so does that give my affiliation to you away?

  2. Cancer here. On the cusp between Leo and Cancer. Does that count?

    I'm not so in love with the magic loop -- even with those Turbos. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? I dunno. Maybe next time I can actually make it to STITCH AND BITCH (Hear me, SFSE? Are ya comin' at me?), I can get a review and see if there's a better way to have those Turbos work for me.

  3. I guess it's just because we're the best, I mean, the most popular, I mean, hmmmmmmm. Leos rule!
    Oh, and I can't wait to see some stripey green sock progress!

  6. Knitting pix! I haven't tried the magic loop thing or the Addi's yet...I'm still in love with bamboos. Someday. Someday I'll give the Addi's a try.

    Pisces, by the way. :-)
