What's In A Name?

You entered: ******* ****** :D

There are 13 letters in your name.
Those 13 letters total to 63
There are 5 vowels and 8 consonants in your name.

Your number is: 9

The characteristics of #9 are: Humanitarian, giving nature, selflessness, obligations, creative expression.

The expression or destiny for #9:
The expression that you exhibit is represented bythe number 9. Your talents center in humanistic interests and approaches. You like to help others as you were intended to be the 'big brother or big sister' type. You operate best when you follow your feelings and sense of compassion, and allow yourself to be sensitive to the needs of others. You work well with people, and have the potential to inspire. This suggests that you could successfully teach or counsel. Creative ability, imagination and artistic talent (often latent) of the highest order are present in this expression. It's possible that you're not using or developing all of these capabilities at this time. Some of your talents may have been used at an earlier time in your life, and some may still be latent. Be aware of your capabilities, so that you can make use of them at appropriate times.

If you are able to achieve the potential of your natural expression in this life, you are capable of much human understanding and have a lot to give to others. Your personal ambitions are likely to be maintained in a very positive perspective, never losing sight of an interest in people, and a sympathetic, tolerant, broad-minded and compassionate point of view. You are quite idealistic, and disappointed at the lack of perfection in the world. You have a strong awareness of your own feeling as well as those of others. Friendships, affection, and love are extremely important.

Undeveloped or ignored, the negative side of the 9 expression can be very selfish and self-centered. If you do not actively involve yourself with work that benefits others, you may tend to express just the opposite characteristics. It is your role to be very involved with other people and their needs, but it may be difficult for you achieve this role. Aloofness, lack of involvement, and a lack of sensitivity mark the low road of this expression.

Your Soul Urge number is: 2

A Soul Urge number of 2 means:
With the Soul Urge number 2, your motivation is centered on friendships, partnerships, and companionship. You want to work with others as a part of a cooperative team. Leadership is not important to you, but making a contribution to the team effort is. You are willing to work hard to achieve a harmonious environment with sensitive, genial people.

In a positive sense, the 2 Soul Urge is sympathetic, extremely concerned and devoted. The nature tends to be very sensitive to others, always tactful and diplomatic. This element in your nature indicates that you are rather emotional. You are persuasive, but in a very quiet way, never forceful. You are the type that makes really close friendships because you are so affectionate and loving.

If this number is over-emphasized in your makeup, you may be over-sensitive, with a delicate ego that is too easily hurt. You may be timid or fearful, too easygoing for your own good.

Your Inner Dream number is: 7

An Inner Dream number of 7 means:
You dream of having the opportunity to read, study, and shut yourself off from worldly distractions. You can see yourself as a teacher, mystic, or ecclesiastic, spending your life in the pursuit of knowledge and learning.

I Won!

Yep! Sure did and I am thrilled. One of my daily reads and another member of the SciFiKAL,is the blog of Zeeppo. Over there, I am the Maharet Icon and he is Capt. James Tiberius Kirk. I always enjoy his blog for the knitting and the cartoons...especially the Savage Chickens.

Well, every week he does a Lance Larson mystery Contest and this time I was the one who guessed right.

So many thanks to Zeeppo for the fun he provides and the wonderful charity knitting he does that you can read about as well.

And keep that long scarf going Zeeppoo! One day if I ever make it back to my home state of New Jersey for a visit I just may show up and knit a few rows on one of those scarves for you!

Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series, is the thead of teh Council of the Wise, the leaders of the free races in Middle Earth.

A Day in the LIfe of a Podcast Roadie!

Well, we awoke early to meet Kelly at the Airport! Of course, we had to greet her in proper wizarding style!

From there, it was back to Rosemary's to gather our things and head to Norman and Mugglefest! Finding the Train Depot with no problems, We went in and Rosemary and Kelly prepared themselves for the first of 3 Trivia Competitions with the 4th one being the championship round. And so it began!

While they were doing that, I wandered the streets of Norman seeing what else abounded. All three of us were amazed at some of the amazing sidewalk art that was being produced for the Art Contest they were having.

Two of our favs were:

While the Trivia contests at the train depot continued, I wandered over to the Library to see what events they had going on there! It was fantastic. I got to meet Rebecca one of the AWESOME group of Library staff and volunteers behind this event! She graciously submitted to my first "interview" for Fangirlin' and also posed for a photo with my dear friend Lady Macbeth who is sporting her Hufflepuff colors proudly!

I also got to interview the dear potions master Professor Snape while there (and hopefully Kelly will be merciful and edit my stumbling out of it :D) They turned the library into Hogwarts for the day and had classes in Potions, Herbology, Divination as well as Dumbledore with the Sorting Hat and various crafts. They also held a Harry Potter Movie Marathon and showed all 4 movies during the day.

Being the Roadie for Fangirlin' for the day was rewarded by being able to sit in for their live broadcast during the "Meet & Greet Harry & the Potters" including getting a chance to meet the band and have my photo taken with them!

After that, Rosemary's husband, Justin and I went to get in line for tickets at the Sooner Theatre while Rosemary and Kelly went backstage and interviewed the bands for their podcast!

Later that night, it was concert time and the night began with Draco and the Malfoys

After a short intermission it was Harry & the Potters!

Both groups were great and so was the crowd! It was a wonderful concert and a good time was had by all! Afterwards, we had been invited to join in an after concert dinner at Coach's with the workers and the two bands. We had a wonderful time and met some wonderful people.

Just before we left, the band members posed with us for a picture and even the band Roadie - George - (YAY George! Roadies Rock!) and the Fangirlin' Roadie - yours truly - got in the picture!

Its the night before Mugglefest and all through the house
The muggles are restless as the wizards expound
On various trivia and thoughts on the books
And have the HP movies on for the sound.

They filled time with knitting
and thinking up questions
One of their number was missing
and called in suggestions

And so it arose that tomorrow would be
A day for fun, fresh air and of course HP

And so after arriving in OKC suburbs at Rosemary's, we headed to Barnes and Noble to knit with Shelly. Managed to finally finish my Voodoo Wrist Warmers (uh remember them from the Knitting Olympics in February ..yea those, finally done!) and sewed a pygmy puff together.

Hi Kelly!!! See you in the morning :D

Progress on the Molly

Some of the most dangerous words in the English language are How hard can that be to make? It's hard, trust me but here is the apron to go with the Molly sweater. Constructed using a wraparound blouse as the basic start for the bodice and pieces of a skirt cutting 3 instead of 2 and binding and well let's not discuss the rest LOL
