Wednesday's Random Dozen

1. Ever had any run-ins with the "library police?" I have not and it has been several years since I've been to a library.  The internet serves as my library now.

2. Do you have a special organizational plan and place for wrapping paper, gift bags, etc., or do you just purchase whatever you need as you give gifts? Well, until about a year ago I had a gift wrapping and gift basket business.  So, I still have lots and lots of supplies left and it is all very organized in a small room at my husband's office.  I enjoy seeing just how creative I can be with wrapping and packaging.

3. Have you ever been in (first-hand witness) a natural disaster? No, thank goodness!

4. What's your favorite Barry Manilow song? Oh, I do love Barry Manilow and one of my most favorite songs of his is "Can't Smile Without You." 

 5. What's the best costume you've ever worn? I was a "flapper" from the "Roaring 20's"  many years ago and my costume was so cute with all the fringe and the head dress. I still have it!

6. Which do you use more often, the dictionary or the thesaurus?
I keep both right by my desktop computer but use the dictionary much more often.

7. What's your favorite breakfast food? Well, I love bacon and when you add waffles to that, it's just "plum" good!

8. Have you ever purchased anything from an infomercial?
Not directly off the TV, but Wal-Mart always has a section with a lot of those items in it and I've bought some there.  The last item was those green plastic bags that are suppose to keep fruit fresh longer, I can't remember what they are called.  They have not worked for me.

9. Have you ever crawled through a window? Perhaps when I was a child, but if so, I can't remember it.

10. Do you believe in love at first sight? I'd better since I met my Hubby (he was 19) when I was a mere 13 years old and I went straight home and told my parents that I would marry him one day.  Six years later I did. ~smile~

11. How man pairs of jeans do you own?  I probably own about 8 pair in different styles and different washes and colors.  Every time I put a pair of jeans own I thank the person that started adding that bit of Spandex to them. Y-e-s, it spells commmmforttttable!!!

12. If someone were going to bake a cake to honor/represent you, what would it be? (Think creatively, like Duff and Crew on "Ace of Cakes.") Now, I will have to explain this, but it would be a MOUTH.  Since I love to both talk and laugh, it just seems like the appropriate representation of me.  And, I would love to see Duff and Crew's creation of my mouth. And, they would have to make sure that I had lipstick on my lips. I do love me some lipstick!

  1. that is a great song!!! have a great day!!

  2. I didn't know you had a gift wrapping and basket neat! I really wish I had a talent or eye for that kind of thing.

    I actually kind of like Barry Manilow, myself. My parents had a cassette of him when I was a little girl. I can remember cranking up the stereo and belting out, "I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter..." I also loved his version of "Memories"

    I love that you would have a mouth...that is hysterical!

    Have a great day!

  3. Hi Lea-

    I've enjoyed reading your responses to Random Dozen. It's a terrific meme. I've always liked a good meme and now I have started my own. We just started a new meme called "Wednesday Wickedness" and will post on Tuesday afternoons. You are welcome to do it on Tuesdays, if you do only one meme a day! We are up and posted now. Each week we pick a famous person and find 10 quotes. Then each question is based on the quotes! This week is George Clooney. Check us out at


  4. Another bacon girl! And with waffles. Yum!

    Love your cake answer. :v)

  5. Wow on #10! What fun. And the cake idea is hilarious!

  6. You know, before kids, I used to spend a LOT of time wrapping people's presents. It was one of my favorite things to do - make them pretty using ribbons, bows, even curling the paper itself to use as ribbons. Fun stuff. Maybe when the kids are older I can do that again ... hmm...

  7. #3 Yes I have! Lots of tornadoes and I am so glad I do not live in Texas any more because we had them every year. Very scary.

    Enjoyed learning about you. Nice to know someone else who loves Barry Manilow LOL


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
