Random Dozen - 04/14/10

1. How do you feel about "Gladiator" sandals, also called "Roman" or "Jesus" sandals? A fashion yea or nay? I can honestly say that I purchased a pair last year and wear them occasionally. They're really comfy but to me they have to be worn with just-the-right outfit.

2. What is your favorite pizza? It's a toss up (you know I can't choose just one, right?) between BBQ Chicken with Spinach and Garlic or Buffalo Chicken with green peppers.

3. There are plans in the works to sell roughly 1,000 items from Star Trek: The Experience in Las Vegas. This means you could buy Picard's chair for your family room. If not a Star Trek item, what prop, background, set, etc. from what TV or movie would you buy if you could?
[Ex: Hurley's "I Love my Shih tzu" shirt from LOST, the plantation home "Tara" from Gone With the Wind, or Tracy's tambourine from the Partridge Family.]Honestly, Lid. I think you just try to get people to short circuit. Or, maybe it's just me whose little brain takes off in a bazillion different directions at the same time when you ask something like this. Anywhoo, the first thing that came to mind is a pair of ruby slippers cause no matter where I am....there's no place like home.

4. Name a local food or restaurant that your area is famous for. "World Famous" 17th Street BBQ...really, Google it. Picked "Best Ribs in the US" by bon appetite. 

5. What is your current favorite snack? It's my ALWAYS favorite snack. Chocolate! lol.

6. Hypothetical: You are required to be a reality show contestant. Which show would you choose based on your probability of success? (You cannot choose "none.")  A...DWTS only by the process of elimination. I don't have more than about 10 pounds to lose so there no chance of winning BL. I would probably be kicked off Survivor for hurting someone. Why? I'm so glad you asked. You see, I don't tolerate conniving, backstabbing, lying, manipulating people very well. Yep, I'd def end up hurting someone and getting kicked off the show. ahahaha So that leaves DWTS. At least I can dance somewhat and would have a chance.  

A. Dancing with the Stars
B. Biggest Loser
C. Survivor

7. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being uninhabitable and 10 being cleanliness that meets the standards of OCD, how clean is your vehicle's interior? Sadly, it's about a 5...maybe as low as a 4. It is sorely neglected.

8. It doesn't feel like Spring until _________. I can ride my motorcycle without having to wear extra layers of clothing to stay warm.

9. Something that made you laugh really hard recently is ____. My hubby. He's always good for a belly laugh. And no....I won't tell you what he said.

10. Tell me about a goal you're working toward. Finishing my degree. I'm due to graduate next month. Y-A-Y!

11. Share a thought-provoking or inspiring quote this week. "So much of what is best in us is bound up in our love of family, that it remains the measure of our stability because it measures our sense of loyalty." Haniel Long.

12. Name one thing that you do as a parent that you absolutely know will make your kids happy. If you're not a parent, feel free to substitute "friend" or nomenclature that works for you.Can't say about my daughter or step-children.....but with the's teaching him how to cook and bake.

Carolee / Home4ever said...

Thanks for sharing...and congrats on your pending graduation!

I LOVE chocolate, too!

Abiding Branch said...

Yes the slippers for sure!! And then you made me think of all the chocolate wonders on Charlie and the Choc factory, then that made me think of Chocolat, yes both have Johnny Depp, hmmm I MEAN CHOCOLATE, Just kidding!! lol Anyway,I would love to have the quaint little shop on Chocolat in France but without the crazy priest in town.

Glad you have a bubbly hubby!

Survivor I would get kicked off too. I can have fun with everyone and even tolerate their foolishness and folly but the bugs, the bad breath, and NO TOILET PAPER would be my demise!

Great answers!!!!!

Abiding Branch said...

Oh and I am going to school now myself and CONGRATS on your upcoming graduation!! Where are you going? What are you planning? Is it for career change? Long time desire fulfilled? or further your current career?
Enquiring Minds want to know. :)

Catherine said...

Ooh, graduating?! Congrats!

#6: I'd hurt someone on Survivor too, for the same reasons. Really do not like that show nor what it promotes.

KrippledWarrior said...

Now you're talking real fashion.

Jenny said...

Great answers, I totally agree with #1 "Jesus Sandals" must be worn with the right outfit.

Cathy said...

Great answers. You're the 2nd one I've seen so far that said the red slippers.

Mary said...

Chocolate: Oh, yes! Congrats on the graduation!

Kim said...

I'm so excited for you! Such a grand feeling to be so close to finishing something SO BIG!

Love the quote!

I am seriously craving some good American style bar-b-que! Am just going to have to buy a hunk of pork and try to make my own. I'll let you know how that goes. LOL
