Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

The List Meme

I've been seeing this meme all over knitting blogland and, truthfully, I haven't made it through a list yet without my eyes glazing over in boredom - until reading Debi's today.

She put her own spin on it, added comments to make it fun, and rewarded readers by finishing up with the cutest Pumpkin cat picture ever.

The official rules that go with the list meme are:

Bold for stuff you've done
Italics for stuff you plan to do eventually
normal for stuff you don't intend to do

To satisfy my picky self who sees two categories under "stuff you don't intend to do", I'm change the rules a little:

Bold for stuff I've done
Italics for stuff I plan to do eventually
Normal for stuff I have no plans to do
Red for stuff I see no reason to ever consider doing (But I reserve the right to change my mind.)
End meme with a cute pet picture with pet tongue showing.
