Dr Pepper for me, though I've been known to have a Bloody Mary. . .

I bought "Sweet Shawlettes" at a Charleston yarn shop a while ago. Some adorable patterns, don't you think?

All of the above. I'm sipping a gin and tonic to celebrate the return to warmth (it's 23 degrees at the moment) while I take your quiz. The Potomac river is frozen but it's going to be almost 60 by the weekend. Jeesh. What a winter.

Love your quiz, and I would tell you friends tha back of a chair works well, but of course is not as much fun.
