Random Dozen

1. How do you feel about "Gladiator" sandals, also called "Roman" or "Jesus" sandals? A fashion yea or nay?

Believe it or not I had a pair back in the day. That was back in the 70’s for those who don’t know when “The day” was. And yes I wore them.

2. What is your favorite pizza?

Double pepperoni and double cheese. I like it nice and gooey.

3. There are plans in the works to sell roughly 1,000 items from Star Trek: The Experience in Las Vegas. This means you could buy Picard's chair for your family room. If not a Star Trek item, what prop, background, set, etc. from what TV or movie would you buy if you could?
[Ex: Hurley's "I Love my Shih tzu" shirt from LOST, the plantation home "Tara" from Gone With the Wind, or Tracy's tambourine from the Partridge Family.]

I would like to have Noah’s house from the movie “The Notebook” because I got married there. I would turn it into a bed and breakfast and do weddings there.

4. Name a local food or restaurant that your area is famous for.

Shrimp and Grits is a biggie around these parts. Almost every restaurant tries to make it but a lot of them fail. You don’t just boil grits and shrimp together…Yuck.

5. What is your current favorite snack?

As I mentioned earlier, I am partial to Vinegar and Salt chips this time of year because of their soothing effect if you eat them whole.

6. Hypothetical: You are required to be a reality show contestant. Which show would you choose based on your probability of success? (You cannot choose "none.")

A. Dancing with the Stars
B. Biggest Loser
C. Survivor

I think I would do great at all of them because I do good when I am in the spotlight. Since there are too many whiners on the Biggest Loser and too much drama on Survivor I think I would pick “A”. I think I could learn to dance well.

7. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being uninhabitable and 10 being cleanliness that meets the standards of OCD, how clean is your vehicle's interior?

I would give it a 1. Currently the floors are littered with used Tissues and the mats are covered with dirt and pollen.

8. It doesn't feel like Spring until _________.

I sneeze till I get dizzy. Been there already.

9. Something that made you laugh really hard recently is ____.

“Date Night” the movie.

10. Tell me about a goal you're working toward.

Making it until Friday. It's been a trying week and it is only Wednesday.

11. Share a thought-provoking or inspiring quote this week.

“You just made the list” From the Psycho speech in the movie Stripes. I use it all the time and people don’t know if it is a good or bad list. You just made the list Lid with this weeks Random Dozen.

12. Name one thing that you do as a parent that you absolutely know will make your kids happy. If you're not a parent, feel free to substitute "friend" or nomenclature that works for you.

I bring home food. They like to eat. Pretty simple isn’t it?

Have a Great day,

You got married in Noah's house?! What do you mean you got married in Noah's house? Is it available now for weddings- the house from the set or what? This is intriguing and I am confused by it- but that doesn't take much. Anyway, that is one of my favorite movies- not sure why- several reasons why maybe it shouldn't be, but anyway- favorite just the same.

#3 if for nothing but the porch. Nothing like an old southern home with a big porch.
