20 questions

I am pinching this meme from Teri at Knitting the Blues.
  1. Explain what ended your last relationship.
    Probably distance and the fact we were the most ill-matched pairing in the history of ill-matched pairings, fun though it was while it lasted.
  2. When was the last time you shaved?
    I think....Monday? I am about to hop in the bath and have at the legs, though, because as of today it is officially warm enough to wear a skirt without tights.
  3. What were you doing at 8 a.m. this morning?
    Just getting out of bed in Westbury sub Mendip, on my Thursday night knitting group weekend away. What a relaxing weekend it has been.
  4. What were you doing 15 minutes ago?
    Sorting out my lesson for tomorrow. I had to come home and do it, or I would have stayed in Westbury sub Mendip another night (also I missed Mr Z).
  5. Some things you are excited about?
    Skiing, end of term, skiing, bowling and Mexican food with ski trip buddies, skiing, knitting group, skiing, skiing, shopping for skiing, skiing. And then Malaysia, and Jo's wedding. And other things I can't think of, because I am so excited about skiing. I bought new ski clothes today - ones for girls, not boys, so although they are figure hugging they are ultra flattering. I always rent my salopettes so I am so excited to own a pair! Especially since they were a bargainous £17.50. Also I have a bright pink shell jacket and new polka dot ski socks.
  6. What is your favorite flavor of JELL-O?
    Lemon and lime.
  7. Your prom night, what do you remember about it?
    I had sunburn and was very tired because I'd got back from Tenerife at 5am that morning, so I got drunk very quickly and was a bit tearful and sensitive, especially when it got a bit windy and Beccy's boyfriend teased me about this cold snap showing in my boobage area. Poor Mark, he was only teasing and I cried. Then my boyfriend, Colin, turned up in a tux we'd found in Oxfam and it was all better.
  8. Do you have any famous ancestors?
    I don't think so. I don't know.
  9. Last thing you received in the mail?
    New Boden catalogue. Le sigh.
  10. How many different beverages have you had today?
    Um, coffee, water, sparkling water, grapefruit juice, diet coke....5.
  11. Do you ever leave messages on people's answering machines?
    Yes. Usually they are long and rambling.
  12. Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach?
    Most of the time. Usually though I draw the occasion in the sand, like "Malaysia 2009" and then take a picture, because it makes a good opening shot for a photo album.
  13. Any plans for Friday night?
    Not this Friday. Early night because the clocks change and I will need to get an extra hour of sleep from somewhere.
  14. Do you like what the ocean does to your hair?
    I don't really notice what the ocean does to my hair. I grew up getting a hairful of ocean regularly and I have got pretty good at managing it at the beach. I like to use a hair oil before I get in the sea because it keeps it protected and makes it shiny.
  15. Have you ever received one of those big tins of 3 different popcorns?
    Never. Don't even know what it is.
  16. Do you re-use your towels after you shower?
    Yes. I use my towel until it doesn't smell good anymore. I also wear my clothes more than once between washes. I hang them overnight and then put them away. I am not unhygienic (I don't wear underwear more than once between washes), I just don't understand why people wash things which aren't dirty.
  17. Describe your keychain.
    It used to be 2 keys, a whistle and a memory stick, but now it's just 2 keys and a memory stick, and that fell apart last week so I am not convinced it still works. I need to find a way to reattach the whistle.
  18. Where do you keep your change?
    I have a tub at the top of the stairs, an a tin by my armchair, and some loose change in the coin tray of my car. Mr Z keeps his over the door frame in the living room, so sometimes I add to that. I like to make sure there are a few emergency pounds lying around. I also have a terramundi pot that gets bigger change.
  19. When was the last time you spoke in front of a large group of people?
    Wednesday. I gave a presentation to year 9 parents from all over the county, about the conference in July. There were about 150 people there. I got a bit nervous but was interested to not that this time I didn't shake involuntarily, or break a sweat. I am evidently improving.
  20. What kind of winter coat do you own?
    I have a purple quarter-zip coat from Treasure Island in Vegas which my step-mother gave me; and a long blue chunky cord coat from Boden. Which I wear depends entirely on whether it is raining or not.
I had a really horrible work week, hence blogio silence, but I have had a wonderfully relaxing weekend and have 2 FOs to share!
