Random Dozen…April 21

1. Ever had any run-ins with the “library police?” No, I can’t say that I have.  I used to work in the high school library, so I am sort of “library-minded”…take care of those books, get them back on time, etc…That’s me…a little on the “nerdy side”.

2. Do you have a special organizational plan and place for wrapping paper, gift bags, etc., or do you just purchase whatever you need as you give gifts?  I keep a small amount of supplies on hand for most occasions–tissue paper, ribbon, wrapping paper, and a gift bag or two.  Doesn’t everyone?  Always be prepared!

3. Have you ever been in (first-hand witness) a natural disaster?  Yes.  Once a tornadoe came through our backyard while I was home alone (I was pregnant at the time) I hid inside of the smallest room in the house, and prayed.  The house shook and  it sounded like a train coming through.  Fortunately, the only damage sustained was a large tree was uprooted in the backyard.  A good friend of mine lost her  home, plus the homes of her neighbors on both sides of her were destroyed in a tornado.  There was NOTHING left standing of any of the three homes.  My friend had her hand on the outside door knob when the tornado hit…miraculously nobody died.

4. What’s your favorite Barry Manilow song?  I’ll bet there are some who are saying…”Barry who?” LOL  So long ago…what did he sing?  I guess I’ll go with “I Write The Songs” or maybe “Looks Like We Made It”  I actually had to google him to see what he sang…

5. What’s the best costume you’ve ever worn?  My hubby and I dressed up as Mustard and Ketchup this past Halloween–I was Ketchup!

6. Which do you use more often, the dictionary or the thesaurus?  I don’t use either one much, but probably use the dictionary the most.

7. What’s your favorite breakfast food? It’s a tie between scrambled eggs/bacon and french toast/bacon.

8. Have you ever purchased anything from an infomercial? Once I bought this pan that cooked several things at once.  I can’t remember the name of it, but it didn’t work for me like it did on television!  I think it was called a Turbo Cooker.

9. Have you ever crawled through a window? I can’t remember ever crawling through a window…I’m a bit of a clutz.

10. Do you believe in love at first sight? Yes, I am a romantic at heart.

11. How man pairs of jeans do you own?  None…I haven’t worn jeans since the late 70’s.  I don’t understand the fascination with them..they don’t wear good, and most people don’t look good in them….but that’s just my opinion.  I do have one pair of denimn shorts.

12. If someone were going to bake a cake to honor/represent you, what would it be? (Think creatively, like Duff and Crew on “Ace of Cakes.”) What kind of question is that?  I don’t have an answer so I will just tell you about the funniest birthday cake that I ever received.  It was almost my birthday and I had found a red mini van that I wanted REALLY bad… I told my hubby that I wanted a red mini van for my birthday…He had a birthday cake made with a red mini van drawn on top of it…HA HA  I did get that red mini van eventually though!

Thanks to Lid at http://www.2nd-cup-of-coffee.blogspot.com for hosting this week’s Random Dozen…Maybe it was just me, but these questions were a challenge this week.

Ms. Ketchup and Mr. Mustard

  1. No blue jeans? I LIVE in blue jeans! I think the trick is getting the right pair. I am very petite…still wear a 0 too…so proper fit is extremely difficult for me. Once I find a pair, I BUY them…at whatever price…because I know it’s a rare thing indeed!

  2. Enjoyed your answers. That cake question was a tough one. I had never watched the show that they were talking about. Thanks for stopping by my little corner. Welcome back any time.

    until next time… nel

  3. Love the costumes! Mark Harmon plays Jethro on NCIS…he has aged very well, indeed!
    Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Hi Kathy –

    I’ve enjoyed reading your responses to Random Dozen. It’s a terrific meme. I’ve always liked a good meme and now I have started my own. We just started a new meme called “Wednesday Wickedness” and will post on Tuesday afternoons. You are welcome to do it on Tuesdays, if you do only one meme a day! We are up and posted now. Each week we pick a famous person and find 10 quotes. Then each question is based on the quotes! This week is George Clooney. Check us out at http://jjatww.blogspot.com.


  5. I wouldn’t go as far to say ‘Barry Manilow who?’ but I only know of him by name and that he is a singer 🙂

    And those products on tv always work better for the people selling them than the people buying them!

  6. I bet everyone knows at least one Barry Manilow song (I mean he’s had a lot of hits: Mandy, Weekend in New England, Copacabana) They just don’t know who’s song it is :p

    Great costumes by the way.

  7. Love, love, love that costume. If I was going to wear a costume it would be one like that!


  8. You both look cute in your costumes!

    I think that many things offered on tv don’t work like they advertise : )

  9. Y’all were too cute as Ketchup and Mustard 😀 One of my friend always calls me ketchup lol
