I don't act my age...

You Are 18 Years Old

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

What can I say? I like cake, ice cream, and toys too much. I suppose acting 18 is better than looking 18. I'm rather happy that I haven't been mistaken for a teenager in several years. It's pretty annoying to be reprimanded for being in the school hallway without a pass when you are a 30-year-old high school teacher. I was even used as a model for high school textbooks when I was in my late 20's. And yes, I always had to pose as a high school student:

In Other News...

Peter won his age group in a race this past weekend. I'm proud of him no matter how he does in races, but it is much more exciting when he places. However, I did put a lot of pressure on him to do well in this race because I wanted him to win a trophy. This race gives great trophies.

That is a huge marble block with a bobble-head Toro doll mounted on it. Toro is the mascot of the Houston Texans football team. Not that I'm a fan of the Texans--I could care less about the team. I just think a trophy with a bobble-head doll on it is pretty nifty and unusual.

Oh yeah, knitting!

The baby blanket is in the home stretch--about 7-10 inches left to go. I should finish it this week.

I finished the front and sleeves of the Candace baby sweater. I'm now working on the back--SNORE. Thank goodness it's straight stockinette. Because I don't have to look at my hands, I can knit while reading and doing work.

I also re-swatched for the X-Back tank. I'm going to go down a needle size because I want a tighter fabric. But now I'm not sure which sweater size I should make. I'll think about it and measure my swatch and my soon-to-be-frogged X-Back version 1 multiple times before I decide.

OK, that is too funny that you were a high school textbook model in your late 20s. It's cool, but it's a fun little factoid. :)

... they use actual real humans in textbooks? I hope it pays well - can't imagine people wanting their image to be doomed to a lifetime of having mustaches and beards and dorky glasses and devil horns drawn on them. Not that I'd ever vandalize a textbook.

Too cool! A real person who was in a real textbook! The best I did was pose for a financial aid brochure in college. Glad to discover your blog :).
