2010's FIRST Wednesday's Random Dozen

Thanks to Linda at "2nd Cup of Coffee" for hosting a Random Dozen.

1. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being a cranky-baby-hissy-fitter, how much of a complainer are you?
Probably a three or four, and I feel like that's honest too! I'm pretty sure half my complaining is mere sarcasm to lighten the moment.

2. When someone else is talking, do you listen, or are you thinking about what you're going to say in response?
I'm always listening, but meanwhile contemplating my response. [Yes I do realize that means I'm choose both options in an A or B set-up...]

3. I just deleted 1062 messages from my email account. Do you have any plans for a clean sweep this month--of anything?
I stopped following a few blogs that never update.. I also deleted some emails.. and when I return to the dorm I'm going to throw out last semester's notes and tests and things..

4. Tell us about your perfume. Was it a gift? What does it remind you of? Do you have a signature scent?
Lucky You and Bath and Body Work's Warm Vanilla Sugar, both were gifts and both are signature scents. Lucky You reminds me of camp and old crushes, and I love it!

5. What is your best organizing tip for the new year?
Color coordinate?

6. What is your favorite comic strip?
Family Circus; and I would like one good reason why it isn't your favorite too!
7. Do you sleep with a fluffy or flat pillow?
Actually, four fluffy pillows and one stiff pillow! [Why wasn't that an option?]

8. What color is your kitchen? Why did you choose that color?
This question assumes that everyone has a kitchen, and I don't have a kitchen! HA. But if I did have a kitchen... I would make it turquoise! Because HELLO, it's the color of the year! [Thanks to dear sweet Tonja at The Gatherings for introducing me to this idea!]

9. What’s the most interesting bumper sticker you’ve seen?
Moe's Southwest Grill has some interesting menu items, i.e. "the home-wrecker" and I just love a Moe's bumper sticker that says "Caution: I stop for home-wreckers."

10. Do you prefer an expensive writing tool or whatever is lying around? (Are you a Montblanc or a Papermate?)
Whatever is lying around [which would actually make it a not expensive writing tool.]

11. What chore doesn’t feel like a chore – you just enjoy it (at least most of the time)?
Alphabetizing the DVDs.

12. If your parents often repeated themselves, what is something one of them said more than once?
"It's my chair!"
"You're cold? So put more clothes on!" [Dad, seriously? I'm already wearing sweats under my sweats and sleeves under my sleeves!]
"Is the garage door closed?"

I had to laugh at your #12 because my kids are always sitting in MY spot on the sofa!!!! argh! :)

Kay said...

Oh my gosh.. I had totally forgotten about 'is the garage door closed?'! That's a good one! : )

Hi, I'm Angie! said...

loved that you stopped following blogs that never updated...a good idea!

Turquoise! I better buy up last year's yellow while there's some to be found. :)

My parent's never said the "You're cold" bit, but I say it ALL the time to my four. Glad their not answering this meme.

Cathy said...

Oh no, I sound like your dad. If you're cold, put some more clothes on.

Keetha Broyles said...

I say some similar clothes lines (HA clothes lines I am a punny one) to my students - - - - HELLO, by now they should all KNOW about Lakeview's heat - - - or lack thereof! Don't'cha think?

I want not approve on it. I think warm-hearted post. Expressly the designation attracted me to review the intact story.
