Twenty Things Meme

IMG_3058[1]I did finish the String Theory socks yesterday and the weather report for this weekend is good so i hope to have pictures for next week. Not only that but I'm down to the last sleeve on the Baby Ferris. By this weeked that could be finished as well and they could both be on their way to their respective new homes in NY. I rewarded myself for finishing the Nutkins by casting on a new pair of socks in some lovely Claudia Hand Paint in Caribbean Blue. I don't have a specific pattern in mind, I'm just starting with a toe and seeing where it takes me.

I've seen this meme around a few places this week. I think Carole did it first but I've seen it on a bunch of other blogs too.

1. Explain what ended your last relationship?
Who can remember? I’ve been married for nearly 16 years and we were together even before that.
2. When was the last time you shaved?
Last Saturday. It really needed to be done.
3. What were you doing this morning at 8 a.m.
On my way to work
4. What were you doing 15 minutes ago?
Reading the news
5. Some things you are excited about?
An upcoming trip. MDS&W and all the great fairs and festivals coming up. Starting my garden plans.
6. What is your favorite flavor of JELL-O?
None! I’ve never liked the stuff.
7. Your prom night, what do you remember about it?
My pretty mint green dress. Missing the boyfriend I started dating a week or so earlier – who was not my date.
8. Do you have any famous ancestors?
Not really.
9. Last thing received in the mail?
A letter from my sister. She loves snail mail.
10. How many different beverages have you had today?
Just one – a cup of tea.
11. Do you ever leave messages on people’s answering machine?
Occasionally. I kind of hate them and I’m most likely to hang up and wait to get an actual person on the phone. Just bein’ honest.
12. Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach?
Not really. I take pictures. I soak up the rays. I read books. I knit.
13. Any plans for Friday night?
I can’t recall. How sad is that?
14. Do you like what the ocean does to your hair?
No. I’m not a huge fan of being in the ocean in general. The salt feels icky and the sand goes in places I’d rather it didn’t. I do like to look at the ocean though.
15. Have you ever received one of those big tins of 3 different popcorns?
16. Do you re-use towels after you shower?
Yes. I don’t need to add any more to the mountain of laundry to be done. Besides, I’m clean when I get out of the shower so why not.
17. Describe your keychain(s)?
Aside from my keys, I just have a medallion from the 2005 Rose Parade and it all hangs on a strap embroidered with DQ’s school name. Go Rams!
18. Where do you keep your change?
A little bit is in my wallet but most of it is on the bottom of my handbag. There’s a lot of it there.
19. When was the last time you spoke in front of a large group of people?
The last time that I couldn’t avoid it. I hate public speaking so I’ve blocked it out of my mind.
20. What kind of winter coat do you own?
I have a few but I don’t love any of them. The one I wear most is a black Eddie Bauer parka-like thing. I’ll need to address that before it gets cold again.

That's it.
