Random Dozen Wednesday #14

Time for another Random Dozen from Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee! Click on the button to join in the fun!

1. Which Wizard of Oz character are you most like?

I will be cheesy and say Dorothy. When I was younger I swore up and down I’d never move back to my hometown. Two years after graduating from college, where did I move? Yep, my hometown. I guess there really is no place like home.

2. When you're deciding what you're going to wear each morning, which item do you select first? Why?

Usually pants, because I have fewer of them. So whatever’s clean is what I go with.

3. What kind of animal do you think the world could live without?

Tarantulas. I dislike all spiders, but realize they eat other bugs and stuff. But tarantulas are just unnecessarily huge and hairy.

See what I mean??

4. How many Christmas trees are in your home?

Technically, three. One huge artificial, one small artificial in a box in the basement, and a kitchy little 10” one that my daughter decorated and put in her room last year, and never took down.

5. Would you prefer to be emotionless if it mean you didn't have to feel a heartbreak?

No way. Emotion is 90% of the human experience.

6. Do you ever experience holiday let-down or depression?

Not really. I tend to get the holiday grumpies. All the traveling and multiple family gatherings tend to wear me out. This year I am trying to just be thankful for all the people I have in my life and that they want to spend time with me during the holidays.

7. Do you like Michael Jackson's music?

Older stuff, I guess. Although I don’t like him well enough to OWN any of his music.

8. Why is it that we never judge people who have their teeth fixed for cosmetic reasons, but every other cosmetic procedure has a stigma?

This is my theory- anyone can have bad teeth, man or woman. But almost all cosmetic procedures are geared towards women- lipo, augment this, tuck in that. Men are not held to such beauty standards. So, it’s the Man keepin us women folk down.

9. Enjoy horseback riding?

I used to, but since developing my autoimmune disease I get sudden dizzy spells. Probably not a good thing perched on a horse’s back going 90 miles an hour.

10. Shoes--practical or stylish?

I would love to say stylish, but I dislike pain. So, practical, but not ugly.

11. What was the name of your first pet? Feel free to post a pic.

Skitter, a farm cat. Met her demise in a corn field when she had a run-in with a combine. My mom picked me up from school that day to tell me. I don’t think I have any pictures, as she was an outside cat and died when I was still in elementary school and hadn’t caught the photo bug yet.

12. What percentage of your Christmas shopping is done?

About 85%. But gift shopping for my daughter’s birthday party this Saturday? 0%. Geez.


  1. Oooh, a birthday at Christmas...that's a tough one! My sister's is the day after.

    My oldest daughter has a tree in her room-she collects ballet ornaments so it's a 'ballet' tree.

    On another note...the central vac is amazing. I've never had one before but with a dog that sheds it is great!

  2. Loved your "Man keeping women folk down" comment - it's so true! Although Mike swears that women dress for each other (he means other than hootchie mama dressing) - I don't think we get breast implants for other women!

  3. I wish I liked fancy shoes, because they are so pretty. But, I have wimpy feet that blister instantly. Thus, I'm a loafer/sneaker kinda gal.


Thanks for visiting! I appreciate your comments!
