Random Dozen - 12/02/09

1. Which Wizard of Oz character are you most like? Definitely the Scarecrow....cause sometimes, "I haven't got a brain." My wonderful hubby would concur with this. I'm clearly blond...some days the roots run a little bit deeper than on other days.

2. When you're deciding what you're going to wear each morning, which item do you select first? Why? I generally start with a pair of slacks and build from there. Why? I'm so glad you asked. Because I have lots of tops to go with a few pants.

3. What kind of animal do you think the world could live without? I have no clue on the animal. Now if we were talking bugs....

4. How many Christmas trees are in your home? Not a single one. My wonderful husband disposed of both of them during the move. Oh wait.....we do have one little four footer. Guess that's what we're using this year. Now in his defense, I have to say that the pre-lit one had a place in it where the lights no longer worked and the other tree needed lights which neither of us really wanted to mess with.

5. Would you prefer to be emotionless if it mean you didn't have to feel a heartbreak? Absolutely not! Emotionless means no compassion towards others too. Gotta have that!

6. Do you ever experience holiday let-down or depression? I thought that was a tradition for everyone.

7. Do you like Michael Jackson's music? Some of it...yes; But I'm that way with other musicians too.

8. Why is it that we never judge people who have their teeth fixed for cosmetic reasons, but every other cosmetic procedure has a stigma? I have no idea.

9. Enjoy horseback riding? Oh yes.....I've been around horses since the age of 12. I miss having animals.

10. Shoes--practical or stylish? They have to be both for me.

11. What was the name of your first pet? Feel free to post a pic. Frisky

12. What percentage of your Christmas shopping is done?25%

Peace and Joy,

John 1:1-2 (NIV) 1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning.

I completely agree with #5 and I'm pretty much with you on #12. I really need to buckle down today because it's starting to make me twitchy.

Happy Wednesday!

Melli said...

I think you're right on #6! And it seems most of us choose our bottoms before our tops!

I think us two little no-brains should go finish up our Christmas shopping together! :)

Betty said...

#6 - perfect answer! :)
And bugs aren´t animals?

I am about 25% done too! I don't feel so bad now! I know people who are done!!! Oh Please! How do they do that???

Katherine Aucoin said...

I'm 0% percent done! Yikes!

Dena said...

Looks like most of us could easily do away with bugs.

I can relate on the tree saga. We have a pre-lit tree, but 2 of the 3 sections on it don't light up anymore. What to do, what to do?

We had a cat named Frisky too. :)

I enjoyed reading your answers.
Love the name "Frisky". *smile
My first pet was a little spotted terrier named "Tuffy". Great memory!

Sounds like you've got a charlie brown tree. Love it! :) Wishin' I could ride that Harley with ya. The only motorcycle I've got right now is a little 50 for the boys.

Boots not shoes.
My first pet was an Alaskan Malamute, named Gipper.
Insects are in the animal kingdom. And I know of no good use for mosquitoes. Besides fish food.
Be blessed my friend.

Lots of scarecrows today! Must be our age group!

It seems most choose bottoms before tops. I have more tops than bottoms, because as I figure it most people look at the top half not the bottom. So they never notice if you wear the same pants often.
