Randomly Speaking

Neither rain nor snow nor migraines shall keep me from playing the Random game! I'm heading into my headache doctor's office first thing this morning to get an IV injection. She said sometimes people get in a continuous cycle of headaches, which are basically rebound headaches. I don't care what they're called, I just want them gone!

1. Have you ever been so lost that you were really afraid?

If I have, I'm afraid I have lost the memory! (har dee har!)

2. Have you ever been to an island?

Many times: Galveston Island, Padre Island, South Padre Island. We also vacationed once on Sanibel Island (Florida).

3. Are you more of a thinker or feeler?

Feeler. I'm a thinker about some things, but on the personality tests I'm a pretty strong feeler. Sensitive to others, hate conflict, loyal, tend to take things more personality.

(I thought about answering, "I think I'm a feeler!")

4. Do you tend to see issues or situations in life as black and white or shades of gray?

Mostly black and white. A few gray, like this question.

5. If you were stuck on an island, what book would you hope to have with you (Let's pretend the Bible is already there, so you can't say that.)

How To Excape a Deserted Island

6. What are you most afraid of?

Persecution. Drowning or other slow/painful deaths. Snakes. Walking alone, especially at night. Is that enough mosts?!

7. Would you rather lose all of your old memories or never be able to make new ones?

I'd probably prefer never to make new ones.

8. Pretend I'm looking at a scrapbook page about you. There are three spaces for you to drop in individual pictures. What are those pictures of, and why did you select them?

A picture with my husband and one with each of my kids. Because those are my favorite people.

9. If you were re-doing your wedding, what would you do differently? (If you're single, tell me one thing you would do if you were planning a wedding OR huge party.)

Don't even get me started. The videographer. Almost 22 years later, I still get aggravated. I had looked at some of his previous work and he seemed like he would do a good job. Then the mic fell off the camera, falling from the balcony to the first floor so part of my man's best friend singing is cut off. Then there were some aspects of our reception that he apparently had never encountered (yeah, right!) and he completely missed taping them. Like cutting the cake and our first bites. And tossing the bouquet. Then he typed the wrong date on the label.

10. Tell me one thing you know/believe about forgiveness.

It's amazing, especially when I'm the recipient. And it's challenging, especially when I'm the granter!

11. You're waiting in a doctor's office. What is your favorite way to pass that time?

Read a book - I always have one with me. Or play a game on my iPhone. I also like to watch people.

12. If there were a clone of you in a parallel universe what is one way you hope she/he would be the same as you and one way you hope she/he would be better?

The same - love to help/serve others
The different - more self-confident

If you've never done this meme, there's no time like the present! Head on over to 2nd Cup of Coffee to link up and visit other participants.

And be sure to come back here tomorrow to get the prompt for Flashback Friday!

Loved the comment about the desert island. Have you written that book yet?

sara said...

great answers this week, you witty thing you!!! :)

I guess we both had trouble with our videographers! true.

Cortney said...

I love the neither rain nor snow nor migraines say keep us from the Random Dozen. It's an addiction I think.

Thanks for the mental lift today. Don't know how you can be so witty and have something so significant pounding away at you (headache). You are a stronger woman than I! Thanks for playing.

SusanD said...

These are great answers. I really like your response to #10. It's so fun to see the different directions people take with the questions. Hope you're feeling better soon. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

Oh I sure hope that injection brings you relief! I have only had one migraine headache in my lifetime, and that was many years ago - but I have never forgotten it and have so much compassion for migraine sufferers! I'll be praying for ya!

Ya know... we had a friend video tape our wedding -- we had the most low-key wedding in the history of the world - but even though he did a great job - it was filmed in BETA... and we haven't been able to view it in yeeeeeeeears! I can't share it with my kids... it's so sad! So... maybe you can be happy that you at least have something you can view. (hoping to help...)

Cathy said...

Ok girl, you may have a headache, but you were still pretty funny today. Hope you're feeling better by now. Hate those migraines!!

Joyce said...

Ha-loved your answer to #1 : )

The videotape seems to be a popular answer with those of us who, ahem, have been married for a while.

Barbara H. said...

I'm glad you haven't lost your sense of humor. :-) Hope the injection helps.

Good thinking on #5.

A lot of those fears crop up for me, too.

Amen to #10.

I always take a book with me for waiting times, too.

Cindy said...

As always, I like your random answers because I get to know you better.

My answer to the wedding question is that I'd elope. Everything went well and it didn't cost that much but yes, I'd opt to elope.

Jan said...

Hope you feel better today, Linda. enjoyed your answers.deed
You must be well organised to remember to take your own book to the Drs.
Thanks for stopping by mine, and your kind comment.
Have a good week.

Sweet Tea said...

Ditto on #10!

"Headaches Be Gone".
Hope the Dr. can give you some relief!

quilly said...

#5 -- Personally, I would love to go to a desserted island ... But since Lidna didn't say desserted or deserted, why not get stranded on a populated island so you don't have to worry about it? This one comes to mind. I'll give you a nice glass of mint iced tea and teach you the card game my sisters just taught me.

How sad about your wedding video. And bless his heart, I bet he felt like a real bozo. Enjoyed your answers! Hopefully see you Friday!

Yikes! Your videographer sounds like a nightmare walking!

Kathy said...

I loved your answers. Too bad about your wedding video, but at least you have one...all I have are a few polaroids. Good luck with getting rid of the migranes. ((hugs)) Kathy

Lauri said...

Enjoyed your answers. This is such a wonderful way to get to know people. I am going to try and do your "flashback friday" tonight for tomorrow. That looks so fun. Thanks for coming by my blog (not much, I know :) ).
