Donuts, Eggs, Bakers, and Lindas

I know it's late. I doubt anyone is going to read my answers. But I simply cannot let two weeks in a row go by while ignoring the random dozen. This meme is hosted by Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee. But in a show of great friendship and helpfulness, this week's questions were provided by Linda at Mocha with Linda. Either way they're great questions. So without further ado (because I don't know what I'd do with more ado anyway) here are my belated answers.
1. Do you prefer to read the book or see the movie?
Whichever I see/read first.

2. What is your favorite holiday and why?
Christmas. Presents. (Duh!)

3. Which do you like better - the mountains or the beach?
Beach. It's closer.

4. If money were no consideration, what vehicle would you drive?
Hummer. And before you get all "it's a gas-guzzler" on me, money's no object, remember? And if money's no object and I'm driving a Hummer, just imagine what kind of a house I'm parked in front of!

5. What is your favorite cold-weather beverage?
I would have to find cold weather first. We don't get that often in Florida.

6. How do you communicate most often with your friends: phone, email, text, face-to-face, or Facebook?
Depends on how close a friend they are. : )

7. How do you receive your mail? Mailbox on the porch, at the end of the driveway, down the street, or post office box?
Usually late, and crammed into the box so that I have to yank and pull and sometimes tear to get it out. I have issues with our mail delivery person.

8. Of the four basic personality types - sanguine, phlegmatic, melancholic, and choleric - which is your strongest? Which is your least evident? (See definitions below.)
My husband and I had a discussion on this recently. He and I disagree on my strongest personality types.  I think we finally came to the conclusion that I have all four. I strongly suspect what he was really suggesting was that I have multiple personalities.

9. What do you miss the most about being 20?
Let's see ... was it the fact that my face was still breaking out? No. I was too shy to make friends? Nope. I didn't have much of a personality yet? Uh huh. I give up. Why am I supposed to miss being 20?

10. How long from the time you get up, does it take you to get ready to walk out the door in the morning?
Are you talking about actually, physically making myself presentable and ready to face the world or are you talking about including all the stuff that comes up during the time I'm trying to make myself presentable and ready to face the world? Because it makes a difference.

11. Who handles the car maintenance and pays the bills in your family?
You make it sound as if one person does both. Sometimes I do. Sometimes he does. Sometimes neither of us does, and that always makes life a little more exciting!

12. For those in the US, how many states have you visited? For those outside the US, how many provinces/other countries have you visited?
When I was in the U.S. I visited all the States I drove through and most of the ones I rode through. When I was out of the U.S. I definitely visited all the countries that I was supposed and some that I never intended to. (It's late and I'm not even sure these answers count anymore. What did you expect?)


  1. The hummer is a great car to get. Well I miss the shape of my body in my 20's. I don't often think of warm weather drinks here in CA either. Have a nice weekend.

  2. I just want free gas. I don't care what I drive. Just please. Free gas.

  3. Didn't think about a hummer, but I think I will stick with my Mercedes convertible. :)
    Great answers that always brings a laugh or two as always.

  4. I still get break-outs on my face but it doesn't bother me like it did when I was a teen... why? because it makes everyone think I am still a teen or at least 20/21ish haha!!

  5. I'm reading : )

    I did not ask my hubs about the personality thing. Pretty sure he would come to a similar conclusion as your hubs.

    Have a nice weekend near the beach!

  6. Hi there... first time visiting and popping in from Lid's "Mr Linky" and I'm so glad I did. What cute answers for this week's Random Dozen. Had to chuckle at a few i.e - Hummer and mailbox ones!

    Have a great weekend! Don't forget to play next week cuz I'll want to read your answers! ;-)

  7. The only reason I like the idea of a hummer is because I can back over things without damaging my car. Have you ever driven me? No? Count yourself lucky. I tend to run into things...not intentionally of course.

    You know what I miss about 20? My butt. The size of it I mean. It's the truth, but it's behind me now.



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