Oh My! Blue Monday
True Blue

20 Questions....

Oh no! Not a meme?! Carole started it, Kim, Cookie and Nora (and a bunch of other bloggers) did it and I couldn't help myself, as I wanted to fill some space and buy some time.

1.Explain what ended your last relationship?

A relationship before Smith? Can't imagine.

2. When was the last time you shaved?


3. What were you doing this yesterday morning at 8 a.m.

Sitting at my desk, drinking tea and logging onto the Internet.(See #4)

4. What were you doing 15 minutes ago?

Sleeping (I post in the future).

5. Some things you are excited about?

Still in overwhelm from birthday celebration. Wow.

6. What is your favorite flavor of JELL-O?


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

Prom? No prom…I was an ugly duckling.

8. Do you have any famous ancestors?

My ancestors (Pratt's) came to Utah on the first wagon train, the very first.

9. Last thing received in the mail?

Tons of birthday cards and gifts.

10. How many different beverages have you had today?

I usually only drink water and tea (oh and a little wine).

11. Do you ever leave messages on people’s answering machine?

Yes, but I'd rather text.

12. Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach?

Since I am rarely on a beach I'll have to say no.

13. Any plans for Friday night?

Smith and I usually spend Friday night relaxing and fixing a nice dinner.

14. Do you like what the ocean does to your hair?

I have no idea what the ocean does to my hair (see above).

15. Have you ever received one of those big tins of 3 different popcorns?

Around Christmas time a client will send one to the office. I never touch the stuff.

16. Do you re-use towels after you shower?

Always…why not?

17. Describe your keychain(s)?

Four keys and a tag to the gym.

18. Where do you keep your change?

In a tin by the back door…where I can grab a few quarters if need be.

19. When was the last time you spoke in front of a large group of people?

Several years ago.

20. What kind of winter coat do you own?

A light blue parka (Costco!). It shows off my winter shawls beautifully.


Swimming in the lake would be pretty much like swimming in the ocean. Only more so.

I can help you find out the answer to #14 any time you want!

The whole shower-towel question...I don't get it. Of course I reuse the towels; I got out of the shower clean, right?

I plan to join you when we do the #14 exploration at Carole's.

( I don't know what's gotten in to me but I find this particular meme really quite amusing. Jello?).

Wait! Isn't Jello the Utah state dessert?

Great meme. Fun answers! I'm so glad you had such a wonderful birthday. Pretty much the only thing I do with jello is put a little powder on toast for fun once in a blue moon. Or if my grandma makes it for a family dinner with lots of fruit in it I usually have some. It's fun to dye with.

Love your answers! I am with you on the towels. I can't imagine laundering 5 towels a day. And they would wear out rather quickly.

I didn't know your relatives were Pioneers (I know all about the Pioneers now, after my trip to SLC!) Fun to read!! And I'll bring GF snacks for our beach day!

Such interesting tidbits one picks up this way! :)

I learned a lot!

Another one for the beach trip... hypothetically, would you prefer the bay side, where there are no waves to speak of, but there are sandbars and shells at low tide and peaceful swimming at high tide -- or the ocean side, with the eternal drum roll of the surf?

Shave? hahaha...you made me feel SO much better about my response...heehee

What fun. Reminds me I need to shave. It's almost spring;-D

Great answers!

I see a lot of trips to the ocean on your next trip east. ;^)

That was fun, but I am not motivated to do myself... like you, there are too many questions that just don't apply. Are we getting old? Living deprived, oceanless lifestyles? Or did they just forget to ask the right questions?

Fun questions. Fun answers. Prom, towels, and jell-o. . . who ever thought they'd all show up together!

A belated Happy Birthday! Your party sounds wonderful!

How do you wear a coat to show off your lovely shawls? Mine just get bunched up under in a very unattractive way, then I fix them when I take off the coat. I'd love to see you model it!

I loved your responses - so much more in keeping with my thoughts than others I've seen. I can't imagine not reusing towels!! And shave...it is still winter ;-)

This is the dumbest meme known to man, and ALL memes are dumber than the next or the last. Heh.

WTF is that question about the "reuse the towels"? Good Lord. Stupid. Are you kidding me? Even in the hotels they want you to reuse them now. Stupid, stupid. If you don't reuse the towels, you are a wasteful prat.

And I must say, I do love Jell-O, even the green stuff, and even though I know it's full of garbage.

YES, but what did your ancestors do BEFORE they came on the wagon train???? Heehee.

I might as well have fun of YOUR meme, since I can't stand doing them myself. :D

ha ha.. My answers would have been very very similar to yours on many things ;-)
