RaNdOm FuN

It's Wednesday again, so it's time to join in the fun, read a bunch of "Randoms", and make new friends!  Join us at "2nd Cup of Coffee" where Linda hosts the weekly "Random Dozen".   Don't forget to link up so everyone can see your answers!  She's gone totally Random this week! 

1. Ever had any run-ins with the "library police?"
Well, when I went to the library last week I was told I owed a little over $1.  I had no money; luckily I knew the lady and she told me to just pay it the next time I come in.  Oh, and by the way...the fee isn't mine.  I would never dream of missing a library deadline.  It must be YS' fine.
2. Do you have a special organizational plan and place for wrapping paper, gift bags, etc., or do you just purchase whatever you need as you give gifts?
LOL!  Oh, this is making me crack up!  I have some paper under the bed (in a box), and Christmas paper in the basement.  That's the extent of getting organized with the paper.
3. Have you ever been in (first-hand witness) a natural disaster?
No, thank God.  I did feel an earthquake yesterday, though.
4. What's your favorite Barry Manilow song?
Seriously?  Just one?  I can't do it.  I absolutely sing my heart out to these songs:
Even Now, One Voice, No Other Love, The Old Songs, Lay Me Down, I Write the Songs, Mandy, Weekend in New England, Could it be Magic, This One's for You, (you get the picture)

Or, this one that I loved because at one time I had dreams of being a studio musician (but then got to college and realized that I was really a little fish in a big pond!):

5. What's the best costume you've ever worn?
I'm such a party pooper when it comes to costumes.  I can never think of what to be...most years I went as a hobo.
6. Which do you use more often, the dictionary or the thesaurus?
Thesaurus, especially the older I get.
7. What's your favorite breakfast food?
I love breakfast food, especially if we go out!  Pancakes, biscuits & gravy, or...my all time favorite...
 If y'all are ever in Sevierville/Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, this is a must.
8. Have you ever purchased anything from an infomercial?
 I did buy some of Cindy Crawford's facial products...they made my face itch and break out!
9. Have you ever crawled through a window?
When I was young I vaguely remember crawling through a basement window in our house (to get in, not out).  Apparently someone had all of the doors locked and forgot we needed to get in.  Of course, that's just a vague memory!
10. Do you believe in love at first sight?
Yes...been married to him for almost 26 years.
11. How many pairs of jeans do you own?
12. If someone were going to bake a cake to honor/represent you, what would it be? (Think creatively, like Duff and Crew on "Ace of Cakes.")
A cake that looks like Jethro from NCIS...that man looks good enough to eat!


  1. Hi Mary...love this! I may do a 2nd post today to get in on this. And I love Barry so much.

  2. Ha-#12...that's a good one!

    I named several Barry songs too...lots of people say they don't like him but they still somehow know all the lyrics to his music and sing along when it comes on the radio. The 70's had the best music.

  3. I'm gonna' have to check out this Jethro from NCIS...I don't watch the show, and apparently I'm missing something...LOL Kathy

  4. Loved the last answer! You are too funny!

  5. Hi Mary-

    I've enjoyed reading your responses to Random Dozen. It's a terrific meme. I've always liked a good meme and now I have started my own. We just started a new meme called "Wednesday Wickedness" and will post on Tuesday afternoons. You are welcome to do it on Tuesdays, if you do only one meme a day! We are up and posted now. Each week we pick a famous person and find 10 quotes. Then each question is based on the quotes! This week is George Clooney. Check us out at http://jjatww.blogspot.com.


  6. How funny, I love the last one. That would be some cake! Enjoyed all your answers! Thanks for stopping by and see you when we get back! I am sure I will have all kinds of pictures and stories.
    until next time... nel

  7. I didn't know you liked Jethro! I have a standing date with Mark Harmon on Tuesday nights at 8:00 pm!

  8. Great post of getting to know you more, very fun indeed! I'm known as the informercial Queen in my house lol.

  9. Your cake idea is fabulous! Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

  10. Oh your answer to #4 almost made me sick. LOL you know how I feel.

  11. Yes, Greg, I think we all know how you feel! :D

  12. How SWEET is that you married the one you love at first sight?
    Great answers!
    Mine is here
    Happy Thursday!
