Random Dozen #4 (my second one)

1. Tell me the absolute best way to watch a movie. In the dark. hahaha sorry. Anywhere with my honey; on the sofa or at the theater.

2. Do you ever think about your own funeral? If so, do you have specific ideas about how you would like it to be? Yes. It may be kind of morbid, but after being diagnosed with cancer it made sense to have certain details laid out. (pun intended). One of those details is to have the Gospel preached with an alter call.

3. Are you more of a giver or a taker? I'm definitely both.

4. Vacations: planned activities and schedules, or play it by ear? We have to request our vacation weeks a year in advance. That makes it difficult to be spontaneous. 

5. What is one often overlooked item in your home that needs to be cleaned regularly? The pile next to me on the end table.

6. Name a cause that means a lot to you. The Make a Wish Foundation and the American Cancer Society.

7. Do you eat a regular old peanut butter jelly sandwich, or do you customize it? And by the way, jelly or no jelly? No jelly! Just chunky peanut butter with a huge glass of milk. I sometimes splurge with honey. I have even been known to eat PB with Miracle Whip. Crazy, I know.

8. If we were having a conversation in person, how would I know if you were nervous? I rub the tips of my index fingers against my thumb nail.

9. Do you have an elaborate bedtime routine, or just the basics of toothbrushing and jammies? Wash my face, brush my teeth, then off to bed.

10. Have you ever regretted something you wrote on your blog? Not yet, but there's still time.

11. Has anyone ever told you that you look like a famous person or celebrity? Did you agree? When I was a teenager I was accused of looking like Twiggy cause I was so thin. Not so much anymore.

12. If you were going to dedicate a song to a loved one or friend, what would the song be and to whom would it be dedicated? I'm terrible at randomly thinking of song titles. I wish I had that "total recall" memory that my buddy KW has. 

Peace and Joy,

John 3:20-21 (NIV) 20Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God."

Haha, I said in the dark for the first one too. I have so many songs stuck in my head it was hard to pick just one.

It was fun to read your answers..I don't think I've been to your blog before today. I loved the Menopause Parking video in the post below this one : ) Have a great day!

#2 - I LOVE that! The Gospel WITH an altar call! WOW! I am definitely going to give some thought to that idea!

#5 - I wish I only had ONE pile...

#8 - I do that ALL the time. It would never out me for being nervous... LOL!

I too, love your alter call at your funeral. I mean what better way to get someone's attention. I loved this meme and I too, participated this morning.

PB & Miracle Whip? When I was a kid I used to request for my birthday dinner a "salad" that had PB, Miracle Whip and bananas! LOVED it!!

I'm sorry, I know you don't know me, but peanut butter and miracle whip? Ewwwwww. :-)

I know, I should try it before I "ewwwww" it, but I don't think I have the stomach for it.

Now peanut butter and banana, that's something I can relish!

Oh, and I've seen people do the index finger on the thumb nail thing...I didn't know that was nervousness! Now I know! :-)

Great answers...have a great day!

Susanne said...

I'm not good at coming up with songs and titles randomly either.

Peanut butter and miracle whip is a new one to me. Whatever made you try that combo out?

Susan said...

I cannot tell ya' how excited I was to read that you have eaten PB and Miracle Whip! I wrote that on my blog this am and I have to tell you I almost didn't cause I didn't want people to think it was totally WEIRD!

Janet said...

I'm not good with song titles on demand either!

Pb and Miracle Whip? Hmm...

Enjoyed reading your answers!

sara said...

seriously? miracle whip? I love it, but with PB....hmmmmm!

I couldn't think of any song titles either!

quilly said...

Your answer to #10 is perfect. I wish I'd said that!

I like your profile description, too. My first car was a motorcycle. ;)

Peanut butter with Miracle Whip? Not Cool Whip? Wow. I bet you will have the most original answer to this one!

Terra said...

I enjoyed this list and your answers, though perhaps peanut butter with mayo is just so wrong!
I do like them separately.
Nice to meet you here.

H-Mama said...

hi there! i'm visiting you from linda's. cute blog. love the make a wish foundation too!

Kim said...

Your answer to #2 makes a lot of sense. We did have to sign a paper before we came to Argentina, saying whether we wanted to be buried here, cremated or our bodies flown back to the U.S. We chose cremation since transporting bodies is expensive and here they require your family to pay in perpetuity an annual fee on burial sites -- although I'm not sure what they do with your body if your family quits paying the annual fees.

#5 makes me think you might be related to my husband :-)

Mocha with Linda said...

Miracle Whip? That's what we grew up on, but I can't imagine it on PB.

Loved your answers.

Deven said...

Oh, that blasted end table. Of course, in my house it's that end table and any other flat surface that doesn't move.

Sheesh. Liked reading about you!

Marsha said...

Enjoyed reading your answers and we agree on cancer as a cause. Make A Wish is a wonderful organization!

I see you do Wordless Wednesday. I need to get back into the swing of blogging and I think I will return to WW next week as I always enjoyed doing that!

Thanks for sharing a bit of yourself!
