A Random Dozen

Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee is hosting a Random Dozen Meme. I'm always a willing participant in a good meme.

1. When you go to Wowmart, what one thing do you get every single time, besides a funky-wheeled squeaking cart full of frustration? Phone calls from one member of the immediate family or another wondering what is taking me so long.

2. What is something that people are currently "into" that you just don't get or appreciate? Face piercings and mega tatoos, guy liner and guy polish. LOL. I'm an old fashioned kind of gal when it comes to that.

3. What is something that really hoists your sail that other people might feel "ho-hum" about? Being the first person to crack open a brand new book and smelling the new book smell.

4. Favorite song to sing in the shower or car? Don't sing in the shower at all. In the car? Any praise and worship song that I've got in the cd player.

5. A really great salad must have this ingredient: It's hard to pick just one because I love any and all salad ingrediants but if I have to I'll say cheese.

6. Advice in a nutshell to new bloggers (one or two sentences): Always remember that whatever you publish will be in the webosphere forever even if you delete the post or the blog.

7. What was the alternate name that your parents almost named you? Do you wish they had chosen it instead of the one they gave you? I don't know. I'll have to make a point of asking my mom the next time I see her.

8. What in your life are you waiting for? To be able to work only part time in a job rather than working a full time job and running a home.

9. You get a package in the mail. What is it, and who is it from? A book to review from one of companies that gets me to post on the books. (Ok. So I took this question really literally while everyone else took it in a fun direction. I am so boring! LOL.)

10. Today--what song represents you? I don't know. Is there a song out there about raging hormones and roller coaster emotions?

11. What is one thing that blogging has taught you about yourself? That I was lonlier working at home than I ever knew.

12. How are you going to (or how did you) choose the clothes you're wearing today? What do they say about you in general or specifically how you're feeling today? Wow. LOL. These are getting hard Miss Lid! Let's see I'm wearing knee length shorts and red tank. What does it say about me? It says I work at home therefore the casual dress but knee length because I still see parents in the day. It says it hot out and I hate being hot. It says I was down to a choice of 2 tanks in my drawer and the red one won because it's more everyday and suited to working with small children than the other one that was in there. And I like red.

Thanks for the meme Linda!

Interesting! Love your clothing decision method; it matches mine (except for the red; I like blue).

Joyce said...

Number 3 and number 10...I'm right there with you. Especially number 10 : )

Have a great evening!

ellen b. said...

Fun meme. I'm so with you on #2. #3 is a good one, too.

Faith said...

This looks like fun....can I wait until tomorrow a.m. to do this right before we leave on our last vacation of the summer? don't have time tonite!!

Kelly said...

#3 rocked my world, because my 10 yr old is ALWAYS talking about how good new books smell. ALWAYS. She is a book worm.

I bet you are too. :-)

Jewel said...

It's true, the sensation of cracking the binding of a new book is quite pleasing.

Also.. in regards to your blogging advice. Sometimes I wonder if people FORGET that what they are writing on the WWW can be read by anyone and everyone? Seriously people?? Let's have some modesty!

Barbara H. said...

LOL @ #1. W-Mart almost always takes longer than I plan for.

This looks like fun. I might do it tomorrow. I like good meme with some different questions than what I've seen before.

Sandra said...

LOL the first one made me laugh out loud, it's SO true. It's always a squeaky car with that one annoying wheel that constantly veers to the right or the left LOL

Jamie said...

Fun read! Sounds like you and I could have the same theme song for our lives right now:)

Barbara H. said...

OK, did this one today. :-)

Dena said...

Hi! I came over from Linda's. I totally agree with your answer to #2..I don't get that stuff either, oh and if you find the answer to #10, please do share. It'd work for many of us I'm sure. :)

Jientje said...

LOL at #2. I'm even more old fashioned. I had to google it to see what guy liner was! I feel so stupid! I love your advice to new bloggers, so true!

Laura said...

Nothing beats the smell of certain books! I always judge a book by it's smell LOL. My friends think I am WEIRD for it :)

2nd Cup of Coffee said...

My mom is the only person I've ever known who absolutely does not like to smell books of any kind, old or new. And she says old ones from the library smell like vomit. I must like the smell of vomit??

I can't believe you family calls you when you go to Walmart. I could run off to Vegas and they wouldn't miss me.

You need to write a country song about raging hormones.

Your answer about being lonely made me say, "Awww."

Thanks for playing along!

Melli said...

I think your song might be "I Walk The Line"??? (and it's a verrrrrrry fiiiiine line!) I sO agree with your advice about blogging! That is very true! It never ever ever goes away. I didn't even THINK of your #2's! That's how NOT into it I am!

I'm putting this one up on Saturday! Cuz I have to save Friday for FFF! :)

Quilly said...

Well, the answer to your question for #10 could be Paradise By The Dashboard Light, but somehow I don't think that's where you were going .... ;)
