Random Dozen - 3/10/10 Let's Plink Together

Definition of plink: "Plinking refers to informal target shooting done at non-traditional targets such as tin cans, glass bottles, and balloons filled with water." Plinko is also a game from the infamous game show The Price Is Right!

Here are the random plinko questions and my answers:

1. How old is the oldest pair of shoes in your closet? I think my deck shoes are close to 10 years old. They still look like new cause I rarely wear them. All my other shoes? Two years....tops.

2. Did you buy Girl Scout cookies this year? If so, what variety? But of course. Well, not me exactly. The hubs bought them. Thin mints.

3. Do you know how to ballroom dance? If not, would you like to? No, but there's still time.

4. Were you a responsible child/teenager? Define responsible. ahaha

5. How many of this year's Oscar-nominated movies did you see? I would have to look up to see what movies were nominated to answer that question.

6. If you're going to have a medical procedure done, such as having blood drawn, is it easier for you to watch someone else having the procedure done or have it done yourself? I'm ok with either as long as it's not the daughter.

7. What is your favorite day of the week and why? Sunday. Besides going to church, it's the one day a week that the hubby and I are both off together.

8. Do you miss anyone right now? Yes.

9. Do hospitals make you queasy? No. I've spent entirely too many hours/days in hospitals and Dr's offices to be queasy about it.

10. At which store would you like to max-out your credit card. Not that you ever would, you responsible person, you. Now this is probably the toughest question for me to answer. My little brain raced in so many different directions at the same time: Nieman's, Trader Joe's, Lowe's, Wal-Mart, DSW, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn. Really. This is a totally unfair question that almost caused a circuit overload. ahahaha

11. Are you true to the brand names of products/items? Please re-read #10. lol

12. Which is more difficult: looking into someone’s eyes when you are telling someone how you feel, or looking into someone’s eyes when he/she is telling you how he/she feels? When I'm the one telling. It's the vulnerability factor. Which is just another word for trust.

OK ... ready, aim, PLINK! You can post your own answers by hopping over to 2nd Cup of Coffee and following Lid's directions for this fun meme.  Thanks so much for stopping by, reading my answers, and commenting.

Peace and Joy,

1 Peter 3:15 (NIV) But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,

Susan, in that beautiful red dress on your sidebar, you're a NATURAL for ball room dancing! Go for it!

Have a great day!

Joyce said...

I liked #4-that was good. Sounds like something my youngest would say : )

Have a good day!

I bought thin mint girl scout cookies. And I would love to learn how to ballroom dance. I would totally max out my Lowes credit card. I have so many home projects that I would love my husband to do around here!! LOL

Jenny said...

LOL at #10.

Melli said...

ROFL! I think we are safe in assuming that you just LIKE TO SHOP! Period!

I would have liked a bit more definition of responsible too...

Thena said...

Didn't think about Lowe's but definetly there. Could finish off all the remodeling projects we need to do.

Mary said...

Nice save on #2!

skoots1mom said...

LIKE your Lowe's answer, i didn't think of that...

Heart2Heart said...


Great answers and you are right, once you've been in and out of hospitals for some time, you fear is no longer a factor.

I love that you and your hubby now have some time to spend together.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Mimi said...

I'm lucky that we don't have a Trader Joe's around here. I know I'd spend too much money whenever I went!

Nel said...

Enjoyed your answers. Lowe's is another one that I could max at. But then I would have to hire someone to help me remodel, because my hubby just don't have that

until next time... nel

Loved #2 - the men can't ever resist the pleas from those little girls!

Loved your shopping answer! Let's go!

Robin said...

I could have a lot of fun maxing a CC at Trader Joe's. That would buy a mass of dark chocolate covered almonds and even more organic cottage cheese. :-)

Jill said...

Most of my shoes aren't that old either. And I got a kick out of the fact that you had so many stores listed to max out the credit cards.

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

Enjoyed your answers.

Williams - Sonoma was a top favorite I think!


Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

oh and I had to google to find out which movies had been nominated too!!

Girl, you know you're never gonna go Ball Room Dancing - you're too busy riding your BIKE!

Linda said...

Great answers!
