Due to plans to travel for a relative's memorial service, then head back to Portland just in time to meet up with the in-laws for the opera, I suspect I won't have a chance to blog on Friday. Scheduling this meme taken from Assembled Hazardly in this case that's accurate.
1. What are you wearing?
Plaid pajama pants (men's, cause they're cheaper and less ugly than women's), tank top that I wore under a blazer for work today.

Yes. I'm married, so one would hope so! And once previously.
3. Have you ever gone through a horrible breakup?
I was previously engaged, and though we broke up merely two months before the intended date, the break up of the relationship actually wasn't horrible. It was obvious enough to both of us that it needed to happen. What went terribly wrong was when I tried to rebuild a friendship too soon afterward.

As long as it takes, plus a few minutes to enjoy the hot water.
