Random Dozen

Welcome to this week's Random Dozen, in which I set a personal record for the most questions answered succinctly and with a form of a two-letter answer!

1. Which Wizard of Oz character are you most like?

Dorothy. Because there's no place like home. (And I'm waaaaay too tall to be a Munchkin!)

2. When you're deciding what you're going to wear each morning, which item do you select first? Why?

The top. Because that determines the color and the degree of warmth. The bottom half of the outfit is generally neutral.

3. What kind of animal do you think the world could live without?

Any of them that are in the same vicinity that I am! (Unless they are cooked and on my plate.)

4. How many Christmas trees are in your home?

Today? None. We get a real one. That will happen this weekend.

5. Would you prefer to be emotionless if it mean you didn't have to feel a heartbreak?

Nope. Spock misses out on a lot.

6. Do you ever experience holiday let-down or depression?

Occasionally. Surprisingly, I've had it a little bit on the front end this year, for a variety of reasons.

7. Do you like Michael Jackson's music?

Not even a little bit.

8. Why is it that we never judge people who have their teeth fixed for cosmetic reasons, but every other cosmetic procedure has a stigma?

Because a smile is how we show our inner beauty. But I'm still not big on the whole perfect caps and whitening route.

9. Enjoy horseback riding?

Not so much.

10. Shoes--practical or stylish?

Sadly, more and more practical. But NOT old-lady practical. But I will not sacrifice comfort for cute. Plantar fasciitis has cured me of that.

11. What was the name of your first pet? Feel free to post a pic.

Will there ever be a random dozen without a pet question?!

12. What percentage of your Christmas shopping is done?

Zero. Zilch. Nada.

I'm sure you can find a lot of folks with more "yes" answers than I had over at 2nd Cup of Coffee!

I love these questions and your answers. I need to play along someday.

Barbara H. said...

Love your creative twist on the answers, especially #3. We have neither tree nor presents yet, either.

SusanD said...

After reading about your episode with your friend's German shepherds, I totally understand your answer to #3. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

each of your answers made me laugh!!!

I am with you on #6, I have it on the front end this year.

you and i better get busy on the Christmas shopping...

Joyce said...

I am just loving reading about all the other people out there who haven't shopped. : )

#5-so true...have a great day!

2nd Cup of Coffee said...

I'll be pretty succinct, too, tomorrow.

CeeCee said...

Why do I smile when reading your answers? Except for the pet one. I have a cutie of a kitty. Okay, that was too cheesy even for me. Ack!

Jill said...

I think a future random dozen question ought to be who is freaking out because they haven't Christmas shopped yet.

Lisa Spence said...

Great (succinct) answers! No tree up at my house either. Maybe this weekend. Maybe not. :)

Kim said...

I'm not in the random dozen set, but Linda, I have to don't like animals! Well, pets at least.

And I'll tell you a secret...we don't do the tree thing...stopped about 10 years ago for personal convictions. Sure reduced a lot of stress at my house! I still purchase gifts for the kids and my parents/in-laws, but otherwise, this is the time of year we focus on family together time...we are our greatest and most precious gifts to each other! Just thought I'd let you know I'm odd in more ways that one! :)

Fun fun! Pets on a plate? Hmmm ;)

Except for the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway Thom & I are jointly hosting, I have none of my Christmas shopping done. Since we're moving right after Christmas, we may just forgo the whole present thing all together. It is hard to enjoy buying something one knows s/he'll have to pay to move.

Chel said...

You are so right...Spock does miss out on A LOT! It simply isn't logical. lol
