Random Dozen #10 for me

As always, the Random Dozen is brought to us by “Lidna” at 2nd Cup of Coffee (head on over there to link up via Mr. Linky and see others’ answers).  Most people post on Wednesday, but I guess I’m a rebel. I post when I get around to it!

Linda writes: I’m feelin’ a little Irish this week, so a couple of this week’s questions are Irish flavored. No, not Bailey’s.

*Note that all questions involving Irish stereotypes are meant as light-hearted, fun questions, not meant to be offensive in any way.*

Here are your dozen for this first week of March. You know the drill; read, ruminate, write, for tomorrow we post and link. Did that sound just a tad Irish?

1. Do you prefer even or odd numbers? Any particular reason?
Even numbers are easier for my brain

2. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being “not at all” and 10 being Carly Simon-worthy, how vain are you?
Maybe a 2? I have to remind myself to not go to the store looking like a total slouch.

3. Among these Irish stereotypes, with which do you identify most closely? Talkative, Proud, Inquisitive, Love to party, Hot-tempered


4. How lucky do you consider yourself?
Really very blessed

5. What is the subject of your favorite post that you’ve written?
I’ve written over 450 posts and you want me to choose the favorite one?!? That would take more time than I have — and trust me, it’s a rare commodity here this week.

6. Describe March weather where you live in three words.
Totally unpredictable extremes

7. How apt are you at detecting blarney when you hear it? (Smooth talk, flattery)
I think I can detect it pretty well

8. How “green” are you, environmentally speaking?
I’m fairly uptight about recycling, but I’m nowhere near as environmentally conscious as I should be.

9. What is your favorite song this week?
One of my all-time faves:

But I can’t choose just one…

I really miss this band.  These 3 guys went their separate ways to do solo projects.

10. You are walking along and see a coin on the ground. What denomination does it have to be before you will stop to pick it up?
Sometimes a penny, usually a nickle or greater

11. Complete the sentence: “Every time I look outside my window ….”
I see snow.

12. What was the #1 song on the day you were born? See this site to find out.
“We Can Work It Out” by The Beatles was #1 in the USA and the UK

  1. I am so NOT green. My friends make fun of me. It is not that I don’t want to be green – it is just that it doesn’t come easy to me and it is my nature to revolt against anything I perceive and “tree huggy”. I try, but I should try much harder.

  2. I hope you see some green soon, when you look out your window! 🙂

  3. ROFLMBO! I do NOT remind myself not to go to the store lookin’ like a slouch. I DO remind myself not to go out without my teeth! 😉

    Neither one of those DC Talk youtubes will play. Grrrr….

    • Melli, you have to click on through. They are the official videos and for some reason the music company that owns them decided to not allow embedding. It is safe to click through to them.

  4. I’m looking forward to green myself. 🙂

    Great post, I enjoyed these very much.

    Sorry I have been bad lately, I have had a hectic schedule. I want to be back in WWC, but I need a muse more than you know.

  5. You might as well do the meme whenever you please. Does Linda actually visit you? I didn’t see her for weeks and finally quit. I probably shouldn’t have because I really like the meme, but I also like courtesy. Even if she is too busy to visit every week, every second or third week would have been nice.
