    It's early, and I'm trying to stay awake
    So I lifted this fun little bit from Frolics and Detours

    1. In two words, explain what ended your last relationship?
    Selfishness and Disinterest (on his part. for 7 years.)
    2. When was the last time you shaved?
    One week ago (last Thursday)
    3. What were you doing this morning at 8 a.m.?
    It's 7:41 right now. I'm sure I'll be reading bloglines.
    4. What were you doing 15 minutes ago?
    Catching up on blogs
    5. Are you any good at math?
    I am capable, but not quick.
    6. What did you do on your prom night?
    Dear Lord, that was 16 years ago. Do you really expect me to remember? I went to a party and went home - my date was a friend, and we hung out with other friends.
    7. Do you have any famous ancestors?
    A distant uncle married a singer-lady -- Patty Paige. That's it.
    8. Have you ever taken out a loan to pay for school?
    Just for law school, but it's a lot.
    9. Do you know the words to the song on your myspace profile?
    I don't have a myspace profile, and I feel certain that I never will.
    10. Last thing received in the mail?
    A renewal thing for Utne magazine, even though I have 6 more issues coming to me; and a spy club toy for my daughter. I'm sure there were catalogs, as there always are.
    11. How many different beverages have you drank today?
    zero. i got up 30 minutes ago, and i don't drink ANYTHING before my coffee, which I'm too tired to make right now.
    12. Do you ever leave messages on people's answering machines?
    More than I don't
    13. Who did you lose your concert virginity to?
    I'm very tempted to lie, and mention a concert I CHOSE to go to - but when i was 11, a friend of the family brought me to Huey Lewis and the News. That was it.
    14. Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach?
    No, I draw my daughters' names.
    15. What's the most painful dental procedure you've had?
    Tightening of braces and wearing of elastics on said braces.
    16. What is out your back door?
    My back door is right next to my front door, which I think is very dumb. It's the hallway to my building, only a little further down.
    17. Any plans for Friday night?
    My parents are coming in from a nearby state at approx 10 p.m., and I think that I'm having a Family Movie Night until that time.
    18. Do you like what the ocean does to your hair?
    Yes, it makes it blonder and a little curly.
    19. Have you ever received one of those big tins of 3 different kinds of popcorn?
    20. Have you ever been to a planetarium?
    Yes, at a museum at least twice.
    21. Do you re-use towels after you shower?
    Yes. And if my kids don't, they get reprimanded.
    22. Some things you are excited about?
    Being done with school and starting to be a grown-up, finally, after 33 years; watching my kids grow up; going to Disneyland.
    23. What is your favorite flavor of JELLO?
    Since I found out that Jello is made out of horse hooves, pretty much none. I guess it used to be cherry.
    24. Are any of your great-grandparents still alive?
    My great-grandma died last year. She was 96. She was actually the mother to my STEP grandfather, who is pretty much dying right now, and is my last living grandparent.
    25. Describe your key chain:
    It is a leather folding picture frame with photos of the kids inside. the pictures are old and should really be replaced. I am NOT a good mom in that way.
    26. Where do you keep your change?
    Initially in my wallet; then I transfer the quarters to the laundry-quarter holder, and the rest into our change jar, which is very full, and needs to be taken to a Coinstar thingy. We told the kids they could have the $$ from that.
    27. When was the last time you spoke in front of a large group of people?
    Probably last year's orientation for 1Ls. I've had to speak since, but I wouldn't call them "large groups."
    28. What kind of winter coat do you have?
    Which one? I have a brown suede coat; I have a Columbia 3 in 1; I have a black dress coat; and I have a red puffy coat.
    29. What was the weather like on your high school graduation day?
    Again --- 16 years ago. I only remember that it was sunny out because I can picture it as I was getting pulled over by a cop on the highway to get my first speeding ticket. Considering it was late June in New England, I'm gonna guess it was in the 80s.
    30. Do you sleep with the door to your room open or closed?
    If the kids are home - open so I can hear them. Unless I fall asleep after having sex, for which (of course) the door gets closed and locked. I guess I just sleep with it open, b/c if they're not home, there's no need to ever close the door.
