RANDOM DOZEN


Head on over and visit Linda to join in the fun.



1. Are you pleasant when you're ill, or are you a grumpy, fussy patient?
I'm okay, just leave me alone!
2. When you find out that school is canceled (due to inclement weather) what is your gut reaction?
When my kids were young and school was cancelled I thought "crap" now what!
3. What is one domestic skill you wish you could improve?
Laundry, I don't enjoy doing laundry. Especially dislike folding underwear, socks & PJ's. That is why I want to be a Queen so I wouldn't have to improve on any of my skills!
4. Do you decorate your home for Valentine's Day?
No but I use to when my kids were young.
5. What song is on your mind today?
This is it/ make not mistake where you are/this is it......
6. Do you prefer contemporary movies or classic?
I love classic movies allot but I always enjoy new romantic comedies.
7. How well do you "compartmentalize" your feelings? For example, how well can you put aside a really trying moment to deal with the immediate situation which is not related to the trying moment, e.g., putting aside a tiff with your spouse in order to finish wallpapering a room.
Not going to happen, at least not finishing a project with him. Now if company is coming over I will be very nice until they leave and then it's back to the tiff! Or we wouldn't talk at all.
8. What is the first thing that attracted you to your spouse? (Or if you're single, to your best friend.)
His eyes and he made me laugh allot.
9. When was the last time your heart raced?
I think yesterday when I saw the large "extra peanut butter" Reese's Peanut Butter Hearts on sale at target! (Now if I met John Travolta in person....never mind I would probably die)
10. What are your memories of Valentine's Day at school?
If my memory serves me right we did the decorated shoe boxes and brought cards for everyone. Even back in the day! We always had a party too with cupcakes.
11. If you were going to receive candy for Valentine's Day, which would you prefer?
See's Nuts & Chews or some Milk Chocolate Dove. (Of course the English Toffee is pretty good too at See's)
12. Red or pink
Pink (really yellow)

Great answers! I remember doing the shoeboxes for Valentine's cards too. It seems like we eventually did brown lunch bags instead though.

I love your humor! My heart races at the sight of peanut butter cups too, especially white chocolate peanut butter cups! OMG, I think I'm having a heart attack!

Snow days - I love them! I get so excited to have my grandkids on a snow day, their joy is contagious!

I'll have to give See's chocolate a try, I never heard of them before. And I thought I was a chocolate connassieur! Yeah, right...

Great answers Debby. I was first attracted to my husbands sense of humor too. He makes me laugh still, every day. :)

I love toffee! I'm fine with cheap toffee too like Skor! I despise laundry too and folding is a nightmare!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

I love all your answers! I'd have the same ones for about 90% of them... ;)

The girl with the flour in her hair said...

I also hate laundry. It's not the washing so much, but the folding! I have a huge heaping basket waiting to be folded. Ugh. I think it will keep waiting. I have some blogging to do... :)

Love the list!
