The Birthday Random

1. From "Men Are Dumb ....": If you had a theme song that played whenever you walked into a room full of people, what would it be?
Here Comes the Sun. Either that or The Baby Elephant Walk. But I prefer the first one.

2. From Pam of "Alert And Oriented x 4": Which of your shoes are your absolute favorite, and which are of the object of your most painful shoe-buyer's remorse?
All my shoes are favorites. I don't care how much they hurt or pinch--I will never give them up! Never! 

3. From Susanne of "Living to Tell the Story": Tell about your favorite birthday celebration that you've personally experienced.
Great birthday: 16th. Family threw me a party with balloons and posters and streamers everywhere. The entire youth group came. I was overwhelmed and excited that it was all about me. (Shallow little thing, wasn't I?) : ) Worst birthday: 35th. I was in the hospital in Uganda, fighting off a bout of malaria. Most of the rest have fallen somewhere between those two.

4. From Lori of "Just me and My Life": If you were a flavor of ice cream, which would you be?

I would be every one of the 31 flavors at Baskin Robbins. It would be too boring to choose just one.

5. Cindy Swanson of "Notes in the Key of Life" asks: Have you ever had a crush on a movie star? Who was it, and are you still crushing?
When I was a kid there was a Saturday morning show (not a cartoon) called the Kids from Caper. They were dudes that ran around solving weird mysteries like one episode where everyone thought they were turning into hotdogs. The Kids from Caper rode around in a big van called the Big Bologna. (I am not making this up.) I had a crush on Doc because he was the smart one of the bunch. He also happened to be the cutest. I have gotten over my crush, but it was a long and painful process. Thanks for stirring up old memories.

6. Jill from "Jill Boyd's Place" inquires: Glasses or braces--if you had to wear one, which would it be?

Yes, this is me, and yes, this is a dumb question. It was the first thing that popped into my mind, but since I asked it I'll answer it. I would chose glasses because then I could have the option of going with contact lenses. Which I did. But my teeth are still crooked.

7. Nel from "Fasteneau Facts" asks: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

In a house. I'm not big on outdoor living.

8. Thena from "Patiently Waiting" wants to know: If money were no obstacle, what would be the perfect birthday gift to receive?

Money, and lots of it.

9. From "Life Through Bifocals," LynnMarie asks: What is your favorite birthday meal?

The one I don't have to cook or clean up.

10. Debby at "Just Breathe" checks in with: Do you still send hand-written thank you notes?

Yes, but unfortunately they rarely make it all the way to the mailbox.

11. Linda from "Mocha with Linda" poses this question: What is something you've done that you never thought you'd do?

Live in Africa although I should have seen it coming when I married Indiana Jones.

12. Jewel, my homegirl from Indiana who writes at "Musings from the World of Jewel," is very insistent that we answer this: Mount Rushmore honors four US Presidents: Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt. If you could add any person to Mount Rushmore, who would you add and why?

Our 10th President, John Tyler. He loved kids and had fifteen children. Come to think of it, maybe we should put his wife's face on Mt. Rushmore instead!

Now click on the donuts at the top of the page to enjoy some more great answers. Not that my answers were great, necessarily, but you know what I mean.


  1. The Baby Elephant Walk is what my hubby said should be for him. Too funny. Great answers once again Jill!

  2. Funny answers! I agree with you on most of them, too.. You are so witty :)

  3. I didn't play this week but I'll answer your question this way....I had braces and all the bells and whistles that go with when I was in jr.high/ teeth have shifted a lot because they didn't give you those perm. retainers back then. You might not notice it but I do and I'm in the process of considering the invisaline to re-straighten. I went for the consult this week and I'd need to wear the clear trays for less than 6 months so I think I might do it.

    I have never needed glasses and suddenly I need glasses to read. Ugh to wearing them but yay that they are cute and stylish. I love my daughter's glasses but she probably would not appreciate me getting the same ones!

    Your answers were're def a Here Comes the Sun kinda girl!

  4. LOVED your answers, especially #12!!

    Great question, too!

  5. Another week of great answers. Only why not Here Comes the Daughter? :-)

    Your house answer was entirely too sassy. Grin.

  6. Here comes the sun is a great answer. What a great 16th birthday!
    Dinner out for a birthday is the best. So you write them but don't mail them, that's different.

  7. Funny answers as always. Definetly can't ever have too much money.

  8. That is quite the difference between the two birthdays!

    A shoe girl after my own heart, though I was much better at the pinchy shoes before I had kids.

  9. "The one where I don't have to cook or clean up." it!! Question 8.

  10. Oops...I was referring to question 9.....not 8.

  11. Hello there! I tagged you in a post if you would like to participate :)


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