Another Random Dozen

Time again for Random Dozen (everybody say "HEY"!)! 

1. What is your favorite fair/carnival food?
I don't have one.  I only remember going to a fair/carnival a couple of times, and have no idea what I ate.

2. Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?
Yes.  About 20 pounds.

3. What is your favorite gift to receive?
Money.  No brainer.

4. When was the last time you tried something new?
Last night:  fried calamari.  Too chewy for my taste.
Also last night:  Lambrusco.  Wonderful.  Did y'all know that you can get wine samples for 25 cents at Olive Garden?  
We had our monthly "special ed girls' dinner out" last night at Olive Garden.  Good times, good conversation, and good food!

5. What is your favorite and least favorite book genre?
Memoir, Mystery, Political Intrigue, Romance, Humor, Historical Fiction, Historical nonfiction, Chick Lit, Self-Help, Other
Anything that has to do with politics.  I hate it when people don't see things the right way the way I do!  (ha, ha!)

6.Silver or Gold?
Silver.  Definitely.

7. What makes you sigh?
Is this a "good sigh" or a "bad sigh"?  Bad sigh:  my boys doing something they aren't suppose to be doing.  Good sigh:  a really good dessert!

8. If you didn't know how old you are, how old would you claim you are?
I do know how old I am, and I claim to be 29.  Which is a miracle since I have college-aged kids!

9. Would you break a law to save a loved one? To protect a loved one?
If it were life or death, yes.  If it wasn't life or death, it would depend on the circumstance.  I'm a firm believer in taking responsibility  for your actions.

10. If you had to teach something, what would it be?
Probably something that had to do with music.  

11. You're having lunch with 3 people whom you respect and admire. They begin to criticize a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. What do you do?
Tell them that she's my friend.  This has happened before, so I know exactly what I would do.

12. Which of the 5 Love Languages is your prominent means of experiencing love?
Quality Time
Physical Touch
Acts of Service
Words of Affirmation

Not sure which is your most prominent love language? Take the quiz!


Words  of Affirmation.  I'm not much into the huggy-feely thing. Gifts are a good thing, but it makes me uncomfortable to receive them.  Love to give them, though!


  1. If fried calamari is too chewy, then it's not good calamari. I love *good* fried calamari, but it has to be really good (fresh) or it's AWFUL.

  2. I laughed at "special ed girls night out"...I think you probably need to use a different name when you make the reservation, or they won't serve you those .25 tastes of wine! Ha ha!

    Seriously, enjoyed your answers! Celebrate - you're halfway through the week!

  3. So speech therapists=words are our love language : ) I'm thinking there is a reason we went into that field!

  4. Those were good questions and answers.

    I'm craving some Olive Garden right now!

  5. I agee on the calamari end. Tried it once - dislike the texture.

    I'm married to a poli sci major...I have to know my politcs!

    Glad you enjoyed your girls' night. I treasure mine.

  6. Twenty five cent wine samples? Why didn't anyone share this with me before? :)
    great randoms...randomness's. :)

  7. HEY!!! Money is my fave gift too!! I think calamari tastes like a silly band looks!! See you tomorrow!!

  8. I did not know that about Olive Garden. They are withholding valuable information. Their wait staff should be telling people. I'm sure they would get bigger tips. :) Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

  9. I loved the calimari at Red Lobster many years ago but haven't had it in a long time and haven't ever had it at Olive Garden. Their stuffed mushrooms however are incredible. I loved reading your answers and getting to know you. I hope you are having a good week! Candace

  10. I wish it was only 20 pound for me, it's more like 60! I do white gold and love it. Hope your week is going well.

  11. i loce calamari. give me money any time. i bet i have more pounds to lose than yourself.
