There’s a little mental game I like to play with myself every now and again. I call it the “Only one” (they call me “She of the Creative Titles,” after all) game, and the idea is – if I could have ONLY ONE [insert item here], which would it be? I love seeing how my answers evolve and change as time passes. It’s kind of similar to the desert island game, but without the burden of situation-appropriate practicality (a survival book would be much more useful on a desert island than would a novel.) (Yes, I overthink things.)
If I could have ONLY ONE shirt, which would it be? My Pioneer sweater (and the tshirt that goes under it, which doesn’t count)
If I could visit ONLY ONE website, which would it be? Ravelry. But I would miss Google (and Gmail and Google Reader) and Wikipedia and WordPress and Flickr dearly.
If I could have ONLY ONE set of knitting needles, what would it be? My US6 29″ Addi circular. Perfect for fingering-weight shawls and DK-weight sweaters. But I’d have to smuggle a set of US1 DPN’s in, in my bag or something too. (Yes, I cheat at my own games. What’s it to ya?)
If I could eat at ONLY ONE restaurant, which would it be? Cascone’s (this answer has never. ever. changed.)
If I could read ONLY ONE book, which would it be? Pride and Prejudice (also hasn’t ever changed).
If I could watch ONLY ONE DVD, what would it be? Stardust, I think. Or Season 1 of Arrested Development.
If I could order ONLY ONE item from Starbucks, what would it be? Nonfat chai latte.
If I could have ONLY ONE piece of jewelry, which would it be? My wedding/engagment rings (not likely to ever change) (also, I cheat at this game. Regularly.)
If I could visit ONLY ONE state, which would it be? Minnesota.
If I could wear ONLY ONE cosmetic, what would it be? Bonne Belle lip gloss in “Mocha Mousse”, which I’ve been using nonstop for 11 years (really. I got my first tube from Stefanie at for my 13th birthday.)
If I could bake ONLY ONE item, what would it be? Snickerdoodles. (but oddly, they’re not my absolute favorite to eat.)
If I could have ONLY ONE pair of shoes, which would it be? Oh, c’mon.
What’s your version of the ONLY ONE game?
