Random Dozen

1.  Do you like the new gladiator sandals?

      NO!  They look really cute on young, extremely thin girls.  But no, not for me!

2. What is your favorite pizza?
        I am really not picky about my pizza, even though I love pizza!  But picking up a $5.00 Little C*easars  is just fine with me.

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.

I would have to go back and watch every t.v. show and movie I've ever seen!  I don't remember stuff like that.  Too many lost brain cells!

4.  Name a local food or restaurant that your area is famous for.

Seafood!!!  I live on the Gulf coast and we have the best seafood around.  Capt. Anderson's restaurant is very popular with both locals and tourists.  If you get the right seats, you can watch the boats come in unloading their catches.

5.  What is your current favorite snack?

I am really trying to lose a few pounds so I'm not snacking much.  If I have to have something, I have an apple.  No, that doesn't make me so happy!

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

Everything was going o.k. until I read the based on your probability of success? part!  O.K. I can't choose none so I'll pick Biggest Loser.....but I'm just telling you that after about 30 minutes with those two trainers screaming at me, I'd start crying and get kicked off!  Oh, there goes the probability of success!

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?

I'm so not OCD and the only time I think of cleaning my car is when I'm going to pick someone up to drive them somewhere!  But right now it isn't too bad....maybe a 7?

8.  It doesn't feel like Spring until _________.

The air conditioner kicks on!  We have two seasons here, winter (maybe) and summer.

9.  Something that made you laugh really hard recently is ____.

Every Friday night, I watch Am*rica's Funniest Home makes me laugh right out loud.  And I'm ashamed to say, it's the ones where someone is probably getting hurt that make me laugh the hardest!  I know that is SO wrong and says something about mama hates that show because she thinks it's cruel!  I also laugh at the wedding videos!

10.  Tell me about a goal you're working toward.

Losing a few pounds and getting more exercise.

11.  Share a thought provoking or inspiring quote this week.

Ah, just read one on my niece's fb......Prayer is useless unless you have faith and trust...

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.

I think that it makes all children happy to just know their parents are there.  You don't have to do anything special...just be there.  If they know you will do what you say and that they can always depend on you, that makes them happy.  I always knew that when I got home at the end of a school day, my mama would be there.  I felt safe and secure which I guess to me equals happiness.

Good questions and answers. Biggest Loser is the only one I'd even think of - but I could absolutely not make it through the gym experience! That is so brutal.

I'm with your mom on America's Funniest Videos - but I do like the wedding bloopers. Hubby likes it all.

I am so late is stopping by. We had Little Ceasars and I enjoyed them. Loved their garlic sticks or whatever they called them. Actually my son worked at one for a few years. I couldn't remember stuff either, as I read answers I think why didn't I think of that!
Yes we have two seasons too!
