Random Dozen

Linda's getting all St. Patricky and green on us for this March Random Dozen. To join in visit her at 2nd Cup of Coffee.

1. Do you prefer even or odd numbers? Any particular reason? What an odd question! :v) Until you asked I didn't even realize I did but I would say I've always liked even. I have absolutely no idea why.

2. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being "not at all" and 10 being Carly Simon-worthy, how vain are you? I used to be more vain when I was young, I know that for sure. Where I am on the scale now? I'm not sure how to answer. I'll have to ask someone else in the morning.

3. Among these Irish stereotypes, with which do you identify most closely? Talkative, Proud, Inquisitive, Love to party, Hot-tempered I definitely gravitate towards the talkative. Although I have been called fiesty which is probably a nice way of telling me I have a wee bit of temper.

4. How lucky do you consider yourself? Not lucky but blessed.

5. What is the subject of your favorite post that you've written? Oh, Lidna, you know I have a really hard time with questions that ask me to narrow things down to one, but I think the one about an era ending when all my kids finished elementary school is one of them and this one about stepping out and this one about growing.

6. Describe March weather where you live in three words. I can do it in one: unpredictable.

7. How apt are you at detecting blarney when you hear it? (Smooth talk, flattery) Depends who's dishing it and what it's about.

8. How "green" are you, environmentally speaking? We recycle all the usuals, plastics, paper, cardboard, tin, glass, milk cartons. I don't however compost, don't have an electric car and do I dare admit I let the water run while I brush my teeth? And don't get me started on the crazy so called environmentally friendly light bulbs they are forcing us to use. Can't stand them. And how environmentally friendly can they really be when they contain mercury and you can't just throw them in the garbage and you need to dispose of them like hazardous products? Me thinks someone is making some money off that venture and are giving us a bunch of blarney.

9. What is your favorite song this week? I'm not really into listening to music as of yet this week.

10. You are walking along and see a coin on the ground. What denomination does it have to be before you will stop to pick it up? Protestant. LOL. Just kidding. I'll pick up any coin.

11. Complete the sentence: "Every time I look outside my window ...." I first look at the sky. What can I say. I'm drawn to clouds and sky.

12. What was the #1 song on the day you were born? See this site to find out. "Are You Lonesome Tonight" by Elvis Presley. Now I tried it on your life's theme song on the day you turn 18 and it was "Le Freak" by Chic. Put the two together and how depressing is that to have as a life theme song. Good thing I don't order my life after these things.

Great answers! I'm with you on the water running while I brush my teeth. I often feel guilty, but not guilty enough to turn it off. lol

Barbara H. said...

Funny, I had just finished reading your answers when your comment came through on mine!

I had a hard time with #2 as well, and I totally agree about #4 and 6.

I don't let the water run when I brush my teeth but I do tend to when I ma rinsing dished to load the dishwasher -- I'll find myself adjusting or arranging something and then have to remind myself to turn the water off.

Melli said...

ROFL! I'll have to go back and see what my life theme song was... I didn't do that one!

I let the water run too -- but I do turn it down low... LOL! I need sO much work in the green category it's pitiful! Those environmentally friendly light bulbs have MERCURY in them? The twirly ones? I thought they were just fluorescent. We must have different kinds...? What are you TALKING about? I need to know! For when I decide to go green! I do use those twirly bulbs...

Joyce said...

Ha-loved the song bit. Mine were both peppy...The Twist for the day I was born and Boogie Oogie Oogie on my 18th birthday. At least they're happy songs : )

You don't want to get me started on the environmentally friendly lightbulbs!

Thanks for stopping over and visiting me. I like you blog and I'm going to follow if you don't mind. I just loved the Olympics this year. I see you have a Operation Christmas Child badge on your blog. I did that for the first time last year. After Christmas (at Target) I bought all kinds of small toys at 1/2 price for next year! Love your answers.
I just started Random Dozen a few weeks ago, it's fun. I agree with the light bulbs :( I love the sky and clouds. I post about them often. Even my dog Skye! #3 that's me. Often to talkative on comments.

March is unpredictable here as well it seems. We had a bright and BEAUTIFUL blue skies day yesterday with fairly warm temperatures yesterday, and today it's freezing cold. They said it might even snow on Saturday. I always look at the sky too when I look outside. If you live in Belgium it gets a habbit!

Nel said...

What entertaining answers, so enjoyed my first stop by your blog. This is my first time to participate in Random Dozen and what fun it has been. Blessings to you!

On the light bulb thing, here in the USA, we are forced into because they are beginning not to sell the old fashioned kind. Is that happening in Canada also?

I totally agree with you on #4.

I love clouds and sky also. I love photos of them.

I enjoyed your answers! Yes, I did change the name of my blog. ; )
