What do I need?!

Bridget list:

  • Number of repeats completed on the mystery shawl 2: 7 (out of 50)
  • Number of repeats fudged up: 1
  • Number of repeats I will frog and re-knit: 0
  • Number of back pieces completed on the Apricot Jacket: 1
  • Number of front pieces: 2
  • Number of sleeves: 2
  • Amount of seaming completed: 50%
  • Number of wearable Apricot Jackets I will bring to The Point on friday: oh boy, it better be 1.


You've seen this all over blog land: you Google "your name needs". Lisa mentioned that her name did not generate anything interesting, but who knew what mine would spit out? Weird stuff, that's what.

Véronique needs no double life, at least not until she can handle her first.
(From a review of the movie La double Vie de Véronique). Actually, this doesn't make sense, as there are 2 separate characters- one french Véronique and one polish Veronika- with 2 separate lives in this movie. But, fine, I'll focus on my "first" life. Sheesh. Wait. Is my first life knitting?

Véronique D*** needs a letter of support for her immigration appeal on 2nd May.
Freaky: my birthday is May 3rd! And, for those of you who watch Breaking Bonaduce on VH1 -my initials, by the way- Danny Bonaduce gets my birthdate tattooed on his upper arm. Coincidence?... Oh, and I hope I never have to deal with Immigration Offices. Good thing I have 2 passports!

Sainte-Véronique, it's also a place where we welcome visitors. ... Need gas?
Fine, this one is stretching it. But check it out: there's a village in Canada named after me!

Focus on Henri’s care and his unique emotional needs keep Véronique very busy.
Ah, that Henri! He keeps my hands full.

Mady Mesplé (Véronique) needs no introduction to recordings of French opérette with her distinctive, light and thinly textured soprano voice with clear pronunciation and rapid vibrato.
You know, my grand-mother loves opérette... When in doubt, I buy an opérette CD for Mamie. This website had a picture of the album cover. Should I get this for my Mamie?!
