Random Dozen - Love Like Crazy

1. What is your favorite Mexican dish? My homemade soft shell tacos/burritos. I generally use leftover meat, grate some carrots to saute with the onion and garlic, add a little of my own taco/fajita seasoning, green,  red, yellow, orange bell peppers (whatever you have on hand), a little jalapeno, then some black beans (rinsed and drained, please). Roll it all up in a warmed flour tortilla and top it with a little sour cream, salsa, and grated cheese. Sometimes, I have some sliced avocado on the side too. Don't have tortillas? Crush some tortilla chips on a plate, cover with lettuce, then top with all that stuff above. Delicious! Ummmm.....can I see a show of hands? Who's coming over for dinner? lol

2. When you were a kid, did you get started on your homework right away after school, or did you procrastinate? Homework? You were supposed to do homework? Who knew!!?!!

3. What is your favorite store for home furnishings? Ashley furniture.

4. When you were young, did you like school lunches? No. I always had a packed lunch. Well, until high school. Then I used my lunch $$$ to go eat off campus with my friends.

5. Is religion a crutch? Religion....yes.

6. In your region, what is the "big" (most popular in the community or state) high school sport? FOOTBALL!

7. Do you consider yourself rich? Beyond measure.

8. Which of these would you have the best chance for success in administering:
B) Heimlich Maneuver
C) Changing a flat tire
Definitely changing a flat tire. "Hello. Jim's Towing? Yes. I'm on Highway 154 at mile marker 22 with a flat tire. You can be here in ten minutes? Great. Thanks so much. See you then."

9. Which dance would you prefer to learn & why:
A) Salsa
B) Hip Hop
C) Waltz
D) Swing
I chose Swing dance. No gymnastics. No acrobatics. No throwing out the back. This....I could do:

10. What's the worst news you've ever delivered to someone? "I have breast cancer."

11. Name something you learned in college that had nothing to do with classes or academics.Volunteering.

12. New variation on an old question: If there's a song in your head that just won't get out, what is your favorite (or most repeated) line in that song? Love Like Crazy by Lee Brice. "Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I love you; Go to work, do your best, and don't out smart your common sense; Never let your prayin' knees get lazy; and love like crazy."

Peace and Joy,

Psalm 116:1-2 (NIV)  1 I love the LORD, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. 2 Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.

I really liked your answers, especially your solution for a flat tire! And yes, I'm coming to dinner!

Kara With a K said...

Now I'm drooling after reading your first answer! Yummmmmmmmm!!! But, of course, they had me with mexican food.

I don't think I've ever heard that song before. But I like the lyric.

Joyce said...

I love that song too. And we both learned to change a tire in a similar way : ) And I for sure will be there for dinner! I wish anyway.

samurai said...

You answered #5 so much more concise than i did!

#8 brought Dr Pepper to my nasal cavity... 8D

#10 - scary indeed... i do not "know" you beyond today's blog entry... but... i pray that God has healed you of that. 8|

Your "worst news" answer wins out of all the ones I've read.

What time should I arrive for dinner?!

I almost put some sort of phone answer for the flat tire!

Angel said...

Great answers!!! It's 8 in the morning and you have me hungry for mexican!! Love the flat tire answer too!! Sure didn't know you had breast cancer, I have several survivors in my family!!

Love and Blessings

#1 - Yummm...I'm getting all kinds of dinner ideas today!

#10 - My mom is a 20 year survivor now -- and she didn't tell us. Only after she had had surgery (we lived far away at the time), did she allow any of her children to know. I'm still not sure how I feel about that!

Lisa Laree said...

I am SO with you on the answer to #8! That's why I have AAA! :)

Melli said...

I LOVE that song - and hopefully, now IT will be in my head all day!

That Swing video just makes it look TOO easy... you know it's NOT! You have to have rhythm... and coordination... *sigh*

We SO agreed on #5!

Thena said...

Never heard the song before, but I'm sure now that I have it will be one I will listen to over and over.

Debby said...

I didn't do homework either. Sorry about the cancer. ((HUGS)) I want to swing dance too! Hope your having a great week.

Teresa Dawn said...

I LOVE your flat tire answer... I could actually do that too using your method!!! I should re-think my response haha.

I skipped your Mexican food question. I'm trying to diet and have read too many of those answers for one day. I love Mexican food and the answers aren't helping :p

Judy said...

I like how you change a tire! :) Your homemade taco/burrito sounds yummy!

Karen said...

Okay, so what time is dinner?! :)
Have a blessed week~

Mel said...

Loved your answers. It was nice to learn a little bit about you. Thank you for the stop over to my dozen. I'm following your blog now.

momma24 said...

Hi! I am new to the Random Dozen this week. Loved your answers, esp. the tow truck. ;-D

Kim said...

I giggled all through your answers :)
AND got even hungrier -- about ready to go raid the fridge now!
We answered #5 almost the same :)

Mary said...

I'm amazed that some people get to go off campus for lunch in high school.

H-Mama said...

No to homework, yes to faith... Love that song! Great answers! :)
