Tuesday's Random Dozen

1. On a scale of 1-10, how superstitious are you, honestly?
I would say a 4, maybe 5. I don't open umbrellas inside, I never walk under ladders, I try my best to never step on cracks, I don't break mirrors and I don't like it when black cats cross my path.

On second thought, maybe I'm closer to an 8...

2. Julius Caesar is quoted as saying, "I came, I saw, I conquered." Which circumstance or experience of yours does this saying best describe?
College. I did well, and I graduated with a good GPA, but I had to work hard especially where math and statistics were concerned. They nearly did me in!

3. If I peeked in on your day like a mischievous little leprechaun, at what time would I most likely find you blogging?
Ummm...Early in the morning.

4. Re: springing forward for Daylight Saving Time, is there anything you've ever been really early or really late for?
Way back in the day when I was in the Auburn Marching Band the director Johnnie Vinson taught me what has become my motto in life; Early is on time, on time is late, and late is inexcusable. I've lived by it ever since. Now, daylight savings time still kills me for a few days, but I manage!

5. What are you most looking forward to concerning Spring?
Planting my garden and flower beds. I don't have a green thumb, but I do pretty good, especially where peppers are concerned!

6. Shamrocks are the national flower of Ireland and are picked on St. Patrick's Day and worn on the lapel or shoulder. Do you wear green on St. Patty's Day?
You better believe it!

7. One of Caesar's assassins, Casca, said, "But, for my own part, it was Greek to me," which of course means he didn't understand something. Probably his own lines in the play. Anyway, what is something that is "Greek to you," something incomprehensible or indecipherable?
Math and reading music. Yes, I'm aware that I was in band for 8 years of my life, but I totally faked it when it came to doing anything other than twirling a flag because reading music is definitely Greek to me!

8. Is March behaving more like a lion or a lamb where you live?
March thinks it's already April here because it has been raining constantly for days. I'm ready for the sun!

9. "An extra yawn one morning in the springtime, an extra snooze one night in the autumn is all that we ask in return for dazzling gifts. We borrow an hour one night in April; we pay it back with golden interest five months later." -Winston Churchill. If you had one extra hour per day every day, what would you do with it?
I should say exercise, but I would probably sleep!

10. Legend says that every Leprechaun has a pot of gold hidden deep in the Irish countryside. Aside from real gold or money, what material item would be in your dream pot of gold?
Right now? An IPhone or a fun colored laptop.

11. "The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God just before you." Robert Louis Stevenson. Look around you right now and tell us about something essential or beautiful very near you that you take for granted every day.
I have a huge window in my office that overlooks some beautiful trees (when they are in bloom). I take for granted that most people in my building have inner offices and don't get the natural light that I have with a pretty decent view.

12. Just for a bit o' fun, click here (www.blogthings.com/irishnamegenerator/) and then report your Irish name. Mine is "Aishling Guinness." Very interesting! I think I'll stick with Amy!

Have a great day!

I am somewhat Irish - at least, we think (honestly, we have no clue - but I'll own it anyways!) - so I love this randomness!

Also, I didn't get a chance to comment yesterday but your post was forwarded to many. I love the yourvoxbox.com idea. No matter which side of the line you fall, making sure YOUR elected officials are representing YOU is a must!

an iPhone AND a cool colored laptop would be better! I'd get in on that too! :)
