Random Dozen

1. How old is the oldest pair of shoes in your closet? I have a pair of Timberland boots in my closet that I got when I was in 7th grade way back in 1992. They still fit and I wear them occasionally if I need to go hiking for some random reason.

2. Did you buy Girl Scout cookies this year? If so, what variety? I bought 1 box of Thin Mints and they were delicious, although personally, I find that paying $3.50 for 30 cookies is a bit of a rip off. $0.11 a cookie seems a bit steep to me.

And yes, I did count how many cookies came in the package.

3. Do you know how to ballroom dance? If not, would you like to? No. And not really.

4. Were you a responsible child/teenager? Pretty much. I didn't party or get into any trouble. I did good in school (if you don't count math class). I babysat for lots of families and never once invited a boy over when I was watching the kids. I didn't sneak out. My biggest mess up was probably when I drove my Mom's car through our privacy fence when I was 14. My parents were thrilled as I'm sure you can imagine. And in all fairness, it was right before I turned 15 and my Mom was with me when it happened. My sister was totally hyperventilating but I was more concerned with the thought that I had just run over my dog.

And the dog was fine. So was my sister. And the fence. Eventually.

5. How many of this year's Oscar-nominated movies did you see? Not sure. I don't go to the movies very much, but the last movie I did go to see was New Moon. Redbox has become my $1 friend instead!

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? I can watch all day on myself, except when it comes to having blood drawn. The quease factor gets a little high for that. Oddly enough I actually watched all of my toe surgeries being done (12 in total) and was fine with it.

7. What is your favorite day of the week and why? I love Saturday because I get to spend the day with my little man!

8. Do you miss anyone right now? Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of the death of my Nanny. I miss her dearly.

9. Do hospitals make you queasy? Not really. Sometimes I even go to the hospital next door to eat lunch in their cafeteria. They make really good burgers!

10. At which store would you like to max-out your credit card. Not that you ever would, you responsible person, you. I would have to say Old Navy, Children's Place, Target or Kohl's.

11. Are you true to the brand names of products/items? Only for a select few products: Charmin Megaroll toilet paper, Dove bar soap, Heinz Ketchup, and Kraft Mayonnaise. For everything else generic will do!

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? This is a weird question, but I would have to say looking at them when I'm telling them how I feel, because it's seems odd to me to not look at someone else when they are talking to me.

That's it for today. I hope you have a great day!

Oh my gosh.. you said all the answers I forgot to say. LOL I looooved Childrens Place until my girl outgrew the stuff. I was so sad. Kraft mayo too.. I got the other stuff one time and could not believe the nasty. Kraft is much fresher tasting. I so wish they would do the fat free in the BIG jar. We go through it too fast. But sorry, we're Northern'ers instead of Charmin'ers. When they changed it all up a few years ago, they lost me. lol

I'm sorry about your Nanny. : (

The hospital where my dad was has a WONDERFUL cafeteria. I'd eat there every day. If I was rich.
