Random Dozen

I've seen lots of friends doing this meme today and decided to join up. Though I'm late, it seemed like a good excuse to put off the mess that is my house. As if I needed an excuse.

1. On an average, how often do you splurge and buy something for yourself?

Something little, like Starbucks, too often. Something big, whenever the hubby suggests it...which isn't often...not because he isn't generous and kind, but because our money tree really needs some Miracle Gro.

2. Are you more like Hall or Oates? Just kidding. Real question: What is the last creative project you began/finished? Feel free to post a pic of it.

I'm not really a crafter, or a baker for that matter, so I was pretty surprised when I pulled these off.

3. OK, Goldie Locks, do you consider your house too big, too little or juuuust right?

Just right. Although I would like to have all this space on just one level.

4. What is your favorite outdoor chore?

Pulling weeds! I love the instant gratification of knowing those little buggars are going down.

5. If you knew that cigarette smoking was not bad for your health but would be a weight loss tool, would you use it? Why or why not?

NO WAY. Disgusting.

6. On a road trip, would you rather drive or ride?

I'd like to do about half n half. But if my husband is the driver, the only shot I've got at the wheel is if he is deathly ill.

7. What do you consider a trivial pursuit?

Making beds daily.

8. This weekend, we downloaded the movie "Duplicity" with Julia Roberts and Clive Owen. Within 5 minutes, I was bored and annoyed, but I kept watching 5-10 minutes at a time hoping it would get better between small chores. I finally gave up and Jorge watched it alone, and then regretted wasting that time because he disliked it intensely, too. So ... how long do you watch a movie or read a book before giving up on it?

I fall asleep even when I LIKE the movie...and reading...forget it, I wish I was a reader but there are too many books on my shelf with a bookmark a few chapters in.

9. Is there a song that you really love but are embarrassed to admit because it's not cool or it's racy or because it's by Hall and Oates?

Sure. I can jam to milli vanilli just like I did back in the day at their concert...obviously before they were found out.

10. On a scale of 1-10 (10 = extremely) how spontaneous are you?

On trying new foods/restaurants/fun places--a ten. On trying new hairstyles/makeup/clothing--a one.

11. Are you a food and/or beverage snob?

When is comes to Asian food, especially Thai and Japanese, YES! Anything else, nope.

12. Who/What are you trying to control in your life?

Pretty much everything within reach or earshot. Me and God are working on that.

Join up at 2nd Cup of Coffee...and let me know if you do, I'd love to stop by and read your Random Dozen.

#2 is QUITE amazing if I do say so myself! YUM!

H-Mama said...

Makes me miss my latte a bit. **sigh** That was my one indulgence. Now what? I don't think weeds will do it for me. You go, girl!

Milli Vanilli... too funny! ;D

Enjoyed reading this.

1. LOL about the Miracle Gro.

2. Those look AMAZING. So wish I could be there to take one off your hands.

7. SOOO true. I don't think I've made my bed once in last three years. :)

#2-looks pretty creative to me!

#9-Milli Vanilli...that's funny : )

It was fun to visit and read your answers...have a great day!

Amy@My Front Porch said...

I didn't link up this week but if I had, our answers would have been very similar.

My husband would agree with #7.

And I fall asleep during pretty much every movie as well.

#12 -- I'm right there with ya

What a great post idea! I am totally with you on #1. I also like getting a manicure every once in a while. Though its only $12, it just feels very indulgent when there are so many other things more important to spend money on.

The rest are great, too (although I can't say I share your passion for weeds)! I found your blog through the BlogFrog network and am so glad I came by to say hello. I will be back to read more on your blog for sure!
