Lid's Random Dozen- Plinko

Head over to Lid's and get the lowdown on the Plinko title. Here are her awesome questions for the week.

1. How old is the oldest pair of shoes in your closet?
I had to go to my closest and look. There is a pair of black loafers that I think may be five or six years old. I never wear them anymore, but they are my back up pair of black loafers until I get a new pair.
Looks like I need a new pair.

2. Did you buy Girl Scout cookies this year? If so, what variety?
Yes. GS are the only ones I will purchase anything from door-to-door. I'm a sucker. I bought a box of Lemonades and Peanut Butter Patties. Here's a thought for the Girl Scout Association: How about selling them at a time when we aren't thinking about swimsuit season? Just a thought.

3. Do you know how to ballroom dance? If not, would you like to?
No, and yes. That would be fun. I'm not sure I want to enough to take lessons at this point in life.

4. Were you a responsible child/teenager?
I'm so grateful for the forward slash in this question.
Child- YES!
Teenager- Notsomuch

5. How many of this year's Oscar-nominated movies did you see?
One. Up. I still cry every time I watch it. Hubs and Daughter always look over at me at certain parts to see if I'm wiping my eyes.

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?
It doesn't bother me either way. Cartoons make me sob, but needles...ehhhh... piece of cake.

7. What is your favorite day of the week and why?
Saturday.
No school.
No commitments.
Nap.

8. Do you miss anyone right now?
I suppose if I said, "no" that I would be heartless. If I say, "yes," then I'm forced to explain. The teenager in me will say, "maybe."
Seriously, I miss family that has passed away and friends who live out of town.

9. Do hospitals make you queasy?
No. See #6. Libraries? Another story.


10. At which store would you like to max-out your credit card. Not that you ever would, you responsible person, you.
This is tough. It would have to be a store with gorgeous dishes and linens.

11. Are you true to the brand names of products/items?
Yes.
Heinz ketchup
Hellman's (or Best) mayo
Diet Coke
White Lily flour
Jim Dandy grits
Cover Girl face powder
Just to name a few!


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?
Just the question makes me squirm a little. Can't I just write them a letter or a blog post or something?

Visit Lid for the Random Dozen. She is the hostess with the mostest. She also uses better modifiers than "mostest."

Great answer to #12. I think I might need to change my answer.

Susanne said...

Oh you crack me up. #12 almost did me in. So funny. And so true.

We're a Heinz and no other kinds kind of family too. And the Hellman's. Yup that too. Another thing would be the Olay of Olay Total Effects.

I forgot about UP. I like that one too.

Mary said...

I love "Up", too! Had to get it for a Christmas present.

Enjoyed your answers. #8 made my mouth drop open. Libraries always make me have to go to the BR! LOL I think it's 'cause they're so quiet.
