The Plinko Dozen

We're ready for the Plinko Random Dozen. If you don't know what plinko is, or what random dozen is (are?) then you need to click here and read all about it. After readying my answers, of course. And commenting on them, of course. Then you can click there and read all the other answers before linking up with your own. And away we go!!!!!

1. How old is the oldest pair of shoes in your closet?

It's probably a good thing you said pair because I have several single shoes that have lost a mate and are languishing in the back of my closet. I'm thinking about putting an ad for them at because I'm certain they are not the only shoes that have lost a mate. I tend to be rather hard on shoes. Or else I lose them. But I never lose a pair which is really kind of weird because it's not like I take one shoe off and set it down while wearing the other one for a while. I usually take both off at the same time so how could they not end up in the same place at the same time? It's not like one could just walk off. (Oh, I crack myself up!)

2. Did you buy Girl Scout cookies this year? If so, what variety?

This is actually the first year I ever bought Girl Scout cookies, and I bought the thin mints. I must say, though, that I don't believe they lived up to the hype. I never trust a cookie that wasn't made by an elf.

3. Do you know how to ballroom dance? If not, would you like to?

I would love to ballroom dance, but sadly, I have no ballroom and therefore it is not allowed. Or possible.

4. Were you a responsible child/teenager?

Absolutely! Anytime something went wrong I was responsible. (Oh, come on! Like you didn't see that one coming a mile away!)

5. How many of this year's Oscar-nominated movies did you see?

I haven't seen any Oscar-nominated ones, but I have a few that Bert and Ernie recommended. (Sesame Street, people. Try to keep up.)

6. If you're going to have a medical procedure done, such as having blood drawn, is it easier for you to watch someone else having the procedure done or have it done yourself?

I think it would be hard for me personally to have my blood drawn from someone else. After all, it's my blood, and therefore, usually it's in my veins.

7. What is your favorite day of the week and why?

I like all the days that end in "y", but my favorites are the days that end in "day".

8. Do you miss anyone right now?

No, but I'm not presently shooting at anyone either.

9. Do hospitals make you queasy?

No, but bad Chinese food does.

10. At which store would you like to max-out your credit card. Not that you ever would, you responsible person, you.

Considering I don't have much of a limit on my card, I'd probably have to go with the Dollar Store.

11. Are you true to the brand names of products/items?

I stick with brand names for underwear and spaghetti sauce. Everything else is negotiable.

12. Which is more difficult: looking into someone’s eyes when you are telling someone how you feel, or looking into someone’s eyes when he/she is telling you how he/she feels?

Unless you're talking about good feelings here, I can't imagine that it's very easy to look into someone's eyes at this point. And because we're talking about levels of difficulty, I find it hard to believe we would be discussing something good. So I'm gonna go with neither, but I am very proud of myself for the deductive reasoning I've exercised on this question. Wanna tell me how you feel about that?


  1. You are too funny! Underwear and spaghetti sauce huh? lolol. Enjoyed your answers.

    until next time... nel

  2. You crack me up! Thank you for making me laugh! Oh and I totally agree with buying band name underwear. I once bought a pair at the Dollar Store, no brand, and they about fell about in the washing machine.

  3. Spaghetti sauce! I forgot about my spaghetti sauce! Thanks for the chuckles so early in the morning!

  4. What a great start to the morning Jill - thanks! I'm smiling at 0536!

  6. Number 8 now why didn't I think of that. I think I took them all too seriously.

  7. Ok-thin mints must be kept in the freezer and enjoyed alongside a glass of ice cold milk. Oh my. Good thing I didn't get any this year! I'm not even opening what I bought...they are going straight to my girls.

    #4-that was funny!

  8. loved your answers I hope you do find your matches on for those missing pairs LoL

  9. Maybe all of your missing shoes are somewhere living it up with all of the socks that never come out of the dryer.

  10. Your answers absolutely made me laugh!!

  11. I'm think'n you didn't answer bout half of those questions. (I was a teacher pre-kids ; )
    You had me going on the Oscar answer...had to read it twice!

    As Joyce says, freeze the Thin Mints. They are great over icecream too!

  12. Do you have socks that are missing a mate, too? That was laugh out loud hilarious for me! Thank you so much for sharing your answers--I loved them!
