Well, I know I'm not in the swap, but sharing some of the love. :-)
Character I think I most resemble: Susan Sto Helit - I'm usually calm, collected, logical, but open to the idea that we adults don't always know what's *really* going on.
Anti me would likely be Rincewind. I love him, but I refuse to live in constant fear.
Favorite Character and book.... I think this would be impossible. I have so many I love for such different reasons, Vimes, Vetinari, Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg, Tiffany Aching, the Wee Free Men, The Chancellor, Cheery, The Luggage, DEATH! The list could go on and on. As for the book "Good Omens" (I own 5+ copies of this book, just in case I meet someone who's never read it so I can give it to them), "Small Gods", "Equal Rites", "Going Postal", "Raising Steam", "THUD!", again, the list can go on and on.
This man and his writings totally bring out my Geek. I could talk about the worlds and characters he's created for hours and not be tired of the discussion. I also can't tell you just how many times in college I would be sick to death of reading, couldn't stand the sight of another book, but I'd still pick up the latest Discworld novel I had gotten my hands on and read until the wee hours of the morning, only to have to drag myself to class the next day as though I had been out partying all night. Never once did I regret staying up to read the book though.

As for getting it to grow longer... I found that putting something on the television that would allow me to knit without thinking was the best way for me to knit the scarf. After an hour or so of knitting without worrying about rows I could finally start to see progress.
So, my boyfriend is from Arizona but now he's living in Oklahoma. That means sometimes it gets really cold here, and he's just not adapted for our winters at all. Since I took up knitting last year about this time, I offered in the fall to make him a scarf if he was interested. He accepted my offer so I let him pick out the yard I'd use and I got to work on his special request for an extra long scarf. Below is the result.
I finally got my bookmark from my partner zigg13pra after some delays thanks to the US Postal Service. Would have posted it earlier but had a busy weekend followed by a bout of food poisoning to start the week. All better now though.
I adore it! The different greens (my favorite color) really work well together.
I so swear I shall complete this 13 mini days of Halloween Swap or die in the attempt!
Okay, on a more serious note... I have 9 of the 13 projects done. Since I can't seem to sleep today going to knock another one out in the AM which will bring the total up to 10. I'm going to be doing a Halloween Memory game, so may decide to do two. One with an orange background, one with a black background, meaning I'd only have 2 more to go.
After this, no more projects with deadlines for me. Least not until I get hormones and such straightened out and back on an even keel.
Okay, I have failed to accomplish my goal in time to meet send outs... But I'm still working on my halloween items! I plan to get back to work on them tomorrow.
Sadly life has thrown several things my way this past week that just totally redirected my focus away from crafts and crafting. Had to pick a diet from the option doctor provided, then learn all I could about said diet and how to stick to it as of the 23rd of last month. Things are settling down though, so I hope to hammer out the last few projects to complete my fake swap by the weekend!
