Random Dozen - 11/18/09

1. If you could master one sport, what would it be? Dancing. Some probably don't consider dancing a sport, but have you watched Dancing w/the Stars? Those people work hard every week to perform.

2. When you make a major purchase, do you go with your gut instinct, or do you do research to make an informed decision? I usually do some research on it thru Consumer's Report. It helps me make a good choice.

3. There is an old kids' game that says you can find out what your movie star name would be by using your middle name as your first name and the name of the street you grew up on as your last. What is your movie star name? Diane Blairs

4. Would you rather give up your favorite music or your favorite food? You always throw in a tough choice question like this one. I'd have to choose my favorite food. I'd give up chocolate before I'd give up Christian music. Just sayn.

5. There are two types of banana preferences. One is pristine yellow, almost to the point of being green; the other is spotty and more ripe. Which is your preference? More ripe. The banana flavor is more developed and it's softer; plus I can make banana bread w/toasted walnuts. Well....looky there....a new favorite food. lol

6. Your favorite tree is? The evergreen.

7. On a scale of 1-10, how tech savvy are you? I'd give me about a 6

8. Has H1N1 touched your family? Nope. But there's still time.

9. Are you an analytical person, or do you just accept things the way they are without questioning or scrutinizing? I think you'd better ask my husband that question. lol

10. Is your personality more like that of a dog, cat, or Koala?  I'm gonna go w/the cat here. They are more independent than dogs, somewhat more cryptic, and fastidious about their hygiene. Don't really go along w/the sleeps a lot tho.

11. Do you keep in touch with friends you made years ago? There are a couple people I stay in touch with who I went to jr and sr high school. I have made some friends through the years and I stay in touch w/them too. So, I guess that's a yes.

12. You are checking out at a grocery store. In the express lane, there are more people than the regular lanes, but of course, their load is less than those in the regular lanes. Which lane do you choose (assuming you qualify for the express lane) and why? I do a mentally tally and choose based on if I'm on a deadline. (Did you read #s 2 & 9?) lol 

If you'd like to join in on this fun quiz, just copy the questions, post your own answers, and link up at Linda's by clicking on the icon at the top of this post. Thanks for stopping by today, This Day!

Peace and Joy,

Psalm 119:105 (NIV) Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path

I'd never heard of this movie star name game before reading it in these questions, but I think it's my favorite part! Love your famous name!!

Why didn't I think of dancing! Those DWTS folks truly get the workout.

Like your movie star name...maybe a photo journalist? :)

Debbie said...

So nice to get to know you better. What a fun little post.

ME too! Love evergreens and just the promise that they offer of always staying green as long as they are watered of course.

I too, would have to say dancing. What joy to really be able to dance all kinds of styles!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I know I always sweat when I go dancing to anything that makes me sweat is a sport. :)

Ain't it funny how ESPN doesn't call dancing a sport? But they provide coverage of billiards and poker tournaments.

Diane Blairs -- oohhh that one sounds sultry! Much better than mine!

Nice that you keep in touch with people. I do like that the internet helps with that!

Joyce said...

we had lots of similar answers...I said ballet : ) My #12 was pretty much the same too.

Hope you have a great week!

SnoWhite said...

fun dozen... glad I stopped by. I totally think dancing is a sport -- and would be wonderful to master.

Only a very strong woman can convicingly say she could give up chocolate! Kudos!

Kim said...

We had the same answer to #1! I had never watched DWTS before this season but am thoroughly enjoying it -- since my teen idol Donny Osmond is on :-) I can't watch it in real time; but a few days later. I didn't want to know who had been eliminated but my addiction to got the better of me and, sure enough, had a big ole headline that it was Joanna Krupa. Next week I'm not going to check the news site until I've had a chance to see the show. lol

We answered alike on quite a few questions :-)

Have a great week!
