Monday's Meme 4/9/07

Since most of the August96 Moms have used this recently, I figured I'd swipe it, too. Here's a glimpse into my mundane life.

1. Explain what ended your last relationship.

It hasn't ended. WineGuy and I have been married for nearly 15 years.

Last Wednesday evening.

3. What were you doing this morning at 8 am?

Dozing and watching the morning news.

Checking email instead of doing laundry.

Yes.

6. Your prom night, what do you remember about it?

I remember everything! I was the Prom Chairman. My date was Sean B. My dress was yellow chiffon with purple and pink painted flowers; it came from Garfinkels. We had dinner at L'Escargot, and the dance was at the Shoreham. The theme was "Always and Forever", and the favors were miniature brandy snifters.

7. Do you have any famous ancestors?

No, but WineGuy does.

8. Have you had to take a loan out for school?

Root scaling and planing , done several times by the periodontist.

14. What is out your back door?

Depends on which door ... most likely the garbage cans.

15. What did you do last night?

Watched "The Amazing Race" and worked the Sunday NYT crossword puzzle with WineGuy.

Yes.

20. Something you are excited about?

My Jeopardy audition in May 2007.

21. What is your favorite flavor of jell-o?

I truly despise Jell-o, except for when I'm a patient in the hospital. Then, and only then, I will eat green (lime) Jell-o.

It is a leather strap with a brass ring and a brass clip, made by Coach.

23. Where do you keep your change?

In the zippered change purse in my wallet.

Either at WineGuy's surprise party last month or in front of the Chorale sometime last month, too.

25. What kind of winter coat do you own?

Winter coat? What's that? Haha, I have two: a black down parka and a red wool dress coat.

I just learned a few new things about you. :) I think that's what makes memes so much fun (probably what makes them popular, too).

It's good to know I'm not the only one watching "The Amazing Race." Up until now, I didn't know anyone else who was watching it.
