Jumping on the Bandwagon...

I'm not a person who forwards chain emails or answers questionnaires and forwards them on...but I'm still a brain-dead zombie from the time change and am about three days behind on my household chores.  This one is fun and a whole lot of other bloggers who I really like are doing it so...forgive me...

1.Explain what ended your last relationship?
I realized the ONLY (and I DO mean ONLY!) thing we had in common was the fact that we liked each other.  Oh, that and the fact that he didn't like music - had only ONE CD in his whole house!
2. When was the last time you shaved?
I think about a week ago...

3. What were you doing this morning at 8 a.m.
Sitting on the couch, gulping strong, black coffee, reading email, trying to achieve consciousness, if not total functionality
4. What were you doing 15 minutes ago?
Putting towels in the washer.
5. Some things you are excited about?
The arrival of spring.  The Evenstar Shawl, which is really starting to look like something (pics soon, I promise!).  Oh, and this Saturday, I get to do something I've always wanted to do (at least since a few years ago, when I overcame my phobia) - ride a horse!!!

6. What is your favorite flavor of JELL-O?
7. Your prom night, what do you remember about it?
Being chased by a goose (LONG story...)

8. Do you have any famous ancestors?
My husband says I'm related to everyone.  He's not far off.  Let's see...Turner Ashby (Confederate General from Virginia), Ernie Carpenter (WV old-time fiddler), John Ashby (VA old-time fiddler), um...there are a few baseball players here and there, the person who founded Dallas, Texas..and the book "True Women" by Janice Windle is about some distant cousins (again, those famous Ashbys).
9. Last thing received in the mail?
The Gail Callahan book on dyeing that I won.  But I have some cool things on the way!!!  ;-)
10. How many different beverages have you had today?
Coffee...coffee...more coffee...some orange-tangerine juice...more coffee...a little water.  Is there any coffee left?
11. Do you ever leave messages on people’s answering machine?
Sure, why not?
12. Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach?
Have not been to the beach in more years than I can count.  Don't remember what I did when I was there.

13. Any plans for Friday night?
A friend has invited me to a gospel-bluegrass jam session at her church.  I'm thinking it sounds like fun!

14. Do you like what the ocean does to your hair?
See #12.  The last time my hair touched ocean was 1974. 
15. Have you ever received one of those big tins of 3 different popcorns?
Yeah, once...everyone in my department got one as a gift for hitting a big deadline.  The hubband and I were in the midst of moving in together, I couldn't get any time off work to make this process easier...we were desperate...I think we actually ate the stuff while we were moving one night.
16. Do you re-use towels after you shower?
17. Describe your keychain(s)?
Keys...loyalty tags out the wazoo...one of those little squeezy light-up things for nights when I get home from choir and the hubband has forgotten to turn on the porch light (grrrr......)

18. Where do you keep your change?
In a cute little turquoise piggy bank I got at TarZHAY for a couple bucks.

19. When was the last time you spoke in front of a large group of people?
Don't remember...
20. What kind of winter coat do you own? 

Several...a nice London Fog full-length coat, a "Michelen Man" car coat, and a bunch of great fleece jackets (again, cheap at TarZHAY)that are my everyday, go-to coats for all but the coldest, dressiest of occasions.
Laundry awaits...more tomorrow...
