An Irish Dozen

For this week's Random Dozen, you're going to want to click here to go and read other bloggers' answers before you post your own. You were going to post your own, weren't you? Come on! It's fun!

1.  Do you prefer even or odd numbers? Any particular reason?
Even numbers are important when you're talking about donuts and shoes. Odd numbers are my favorite when you're talking about having "just one more."

2. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being "not at all" and 10 being Carly Simon-worthy, how vain are you?
Obviously the correct answer to this (as it is to almost any scale question) would be 5. Clearly, someone who claims not to be vain at all is fudging on the truth, and no one wants to be a 10 unless Carly Simon has written a song about them.

3. Among these Irish stereotypes, with which do you identify most closely? Talkative, Proud, Inquisitive, Love to party, Hot-tempered

You tell me. But remember I am part Irish and pay attention to that last choice.

4. How lucky do you consider yourself?
I'm lucky enough to have not gotten that second ticket that night, but unlucky enough to have gotten the first one. (That'll be a blog post next week. Am I whetting your appetite?)

5. What is the subject of your favorite post that you've written?

I wrote a series of posts about the last time I went to the dentist. Click on this link and then click on the "newer post" link at the bottom of the posts to read about stitches, way too much novocain and why I will never go to that dentist again. I don't know if it's my favorite post, but it was funny.

6. Describe March weather where you live in three words.

Sunny. Warm. Beautiful.   (Don't hate me.)

7. How apt are you at detecting blarney when you hear it? (Smooth talk, flattery)

It depends on how good the other person is at speaking it.

8. How "green" are you, environmentally speaking?

I think I'm more of a muddy brown.

9. What is your favorite song this week?

I've had no particular songs running through my head this week, but I've had a few nightmares in there. 

10. You are walking along and see a coin on the ground. What denomination does it have to be before you will stop to pick it up?

Hey, I am not prejudiced. I will pick it up whether it's Baptist, Methodist or Episcopalian. 

11. Complete the sentence: "Every time I look outside my window ...."

That body is still lying in the bushes. (These are the jokes, people! Work with me!)

12. What was the #1 song on the day you were born? Seethis site to find out.

The #1 song was Summer in the City by Lovin' Spoonful, but I think it should have been Anticipation. I was a month late and my mother was more than ready for me to be born. My birth set a pattern and I haven't been on time since.

Head over to 2nd Cup of Coffee and join in this meme. You know you want to!


  1. Great answers. I'm definitely curious for the rest of the story. You're very funny. :)

    I'm extremely jealous of your March weather.

  2. First of all I love Summer in the City. It makes me think of driving around the UK with my girls with all the windows rolled down, singing it at the top of our lungs. Sigh.

    My husband managed two tickets in a single week many years ago...not so lucky : )

    I won't hate you for your weather but I will feel a tiny bit envious. I do love having four seasons but I wish the winter wasn't quite so l-o-n-g.

  3. Don't hate you, this has been the longest coldest winter I can remember for Georgia. I am so ready for Spring.

  4. LOVE #!
    (p.s. your word verification for my comment is 'charch.' For some reason, I feel like you should use the word 'charch' the next time you are giving directions to a lost pastor...sorry, pain meds and no coffee make for a bad combination for me).

  5. Enjoyed your answers. I remember Summer in the City. I went back and read your dental escapade. Bless your heart. I had all 3 of mine(all I had) out at the same time when I was about 22. An oral surgeon did. When I woke up he was done and never had any problems. Mine were lying sideways tho and he had to bust them up to get them out. Plus I am a chicken when it comes to dentists... give me drugs.lolol
    Thanks for sharing!

    until next time... nel

  6. I am all about "just one more". Can't wait to hear about the ticket...and I am sorry in advance. Ha Ha denomination...I get it...ha ha!!!

    Love your blog

  7. Btw, what DIDN'T I eat after the halfie? LOL. A power bar, some chips, a banana, and 2/3 of my beignet order and most of my cafe au lait. DELICOUS!!!

  8. Your answers cracked me up! And we were on the same wavelength as the coins.

  9. Just. too. funny.

    Ok...gonna quote you on that weather report when I remember what the weather guy said tonight...30's in the morning! Last time I looked, it was MARCH. (It doesn't matter that I wrote 2/3/10 on paper work today at the doctors...she kindly pointed out that I was a month behind lol)

  10. Girl, you are crackin' me up with your answers. Where do you come up with this stuff? Looking forward to the ticket story.


Well don't just stand there! Say something! : )
