It's week number 12 for the Random Dozen so without further ado....
1. If you could master one sport, what would it be? I guess that would be running. I was a pretty fast runner when I was young and I did a little distance running after I hit 40 but I was never fast for any great distance. My best time for a half marathon was 1 hour and 45 minutes and I think that will end up being my life’s best run.
2. When you make a major purchase, do you go with your gut instinct, or do you do research to make an informed decision? That depends on what I am buying. For the most part though I am an impulsive buyer. That is why I hate those displays by the checkout counter. Hmmm do I need a Snuggie today? Perhaps the Slap Chop is what I am looking for?
3. There is an old kids' game that says you can find out what your movie star name would be by using your middle name as your first name and the name of the street you grew up on as your last. What is your movie star name? That would be Martin Cumberland. Hey I kind of like that name. It sounds a lot like Richard Chamberlin. Oops I just showed my age.
4. Would you rather give up your favorite music or your favorite food? I don’t know which is more eclectic, my taste in music or my taste for different foods. Giving up just the top one in either category would still leave me with lots of options. I guess I would have to pick music. Good by KC.
5. There are two types of banana preferences. One is pristine yellow, almost to the point of being green; the other is spotty and more ripe. Which is your preference? I much prefer the yellow or even slightly green ones over the over ripe ones. I keep those to make banana bread which reminds me, it’s that time again.
6. Your favorite tree is? This is easy. I like a good oak tree. They are the best for climbing and shade. But then Ule Gibbons said a pine tree tastes pretty good.
7. On a scale of 1-10, how tech savvy are you? About 10 years ago I would have given myself a 10 but technology is changing so fast I am most likely down around a 4 now.
8. Has H1N1 touched your family? I am not going to jinx myself by saying no to this question. I do know people who have had it.
9. Are you an analytical person, or do you just accept things the way they are without questioning or scrutinizing? I put the @nal in analytical. Sorry I had to say that. I question everything. “Inquiring minds want to know”
10. Is your personality more like that of a dog, cat, or Koala? What the heck kind of question is that? Are there no more choices? Of the three I would have to say cat. But only because I think cats are smarter than dogs or koala’s.
11. Do you keep in touch with friends you made years ago? Just a few but that comes and goes. I have gotten in touch with a few of my highschool friends but after a while we find out why we grew apart in the first place. We had nothing in common other than we went to the same school.
12. You are checking out at a grocery store. In the express lane, there are more people than the regular lanes, but of course, their load is less than those in the regular lanes. Which lane do you choose (assuming you qualify for the express lane) and why? I go for the regular lane. As I see it, the more people in front of you, the greater chance that one of them is a moron who has picked something without a price tag or two similar items with different prices which will cause the dreaded “C S M on register two” call. And there is always the chance, be it ever so slight these days, that one of the people in the regular lane will insist that you go first since you only have a few items. It is rare but it does happen sometimes. Can you say “blue moon?”
Have a Great day,
