Wednesday's Random Dozen

1. Do you prefer even or odd numbers? Any particular reason?
I prefer even just because it seems more balanced and I'm all about balance. (I know that doesn't make good sense)

2. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being "not at all" and 10 being Carly Simon worthy, how vain are you?
I would probably be about an 8, not necessarily proud of that fact, but nonetheless, I am pretty vain. But, I definitely have limits on just how vain I will be.

3. Among these Irish stereotypes, with which do you identify most closely? Talkative, Proud, Inquisitive, Love to party, Hot-tempered
Defnitely talkative, have always loved to talk and my parents were always unhappy that I usually had a C in conduct in school because of my talking. :o)

4. How lucky do you consider yourself?
I like to think of it as being blessed and I am very blessed because I've been given the greatest gift of all, eternal life through Christ by accepting Him as my Savior.

5. What is the subject of your favorite post that you've written?
The post that I wrote last Mother's Day entitled, Remembering My Mom. It was my first Mother's Day without my Mom and it was a tribute to the woman she was and the void that I felt since her death. It was very theraputic for me at that time.

6. Describe March weather where you live in three words.
Greening, warming, windy

7. How apt are you at detecting blarney when you hear it? (Smooth talk, flattery)
Very apt and do not care for it

8. How "green" are you, environmentally speaking?
Not near as "green" as I should be and I often feel guilty, but still haven't done anything about it. Perhaps this will nudge me to do my part.

9. What is your favorite song this week?
I've been putting out Easter items this week and have been singing, "Here Comes Peter Cottontail" so guess that might be my favorite this week. ~smile~

10. You are walking along and see a coin on the ground. What denomination does it have to be before you will stop to pick it up?
It doesn't matter, I'm going to pick it up. There's just something about finding a coin laying on the ground. I can't walk past it.

11. Complete the sentence: "Every time I look outside my window ...."
I'm thankful for a husband that takes great pride in our yard and it is usually "picture perfect" and a real joy to look out and see.

12. What was the #1 song on the day you were born? See this site to find out.

"Sweetheart" by Vera Lynn - To my knowledge I've never heard it.

    As someone who prefers even numbers, I understand your balance theory perfectly.

    I struggle with the whole blessed thing. Does that mean that when bad things happen to people they're not blessed? I don't know. Lucky doesn't seem it either, I said, I struggle.

    Glad to see you.
