Random Dozen - May 26, 2010

1. Would you rather host party or simply attend a party?
I would much rather attend a party. There are many reasons, the most important being my house is way too small and messy. Also, I would like the option of leaving. You can't leave the party if it's at your house.

2. Tell us about the most memorable party you've been to.
Well, the most memorable one was actually at my house. Not the house I live in now, a house I lived in 25 years ago. Without going into detail, my memories of the Christmas Eve party include, but are not limited to: kegs of beer, absolutely no food, fights, people passed out on my lawn, a path of muddy beer from my bathroom to the kegs, locked doors, my psycho brother, a person who shall remain nameless who actually passed out and fell over while unwrapping presents on Christmas morning.

3. What is one thing you hope for in the after-life?
Well, to be alive.

4. What do you enjoy most about sunshine?
This is a very difficult question for me. I like that sunshine lights and warms the earth and all the other science-y stuff. But I do not enjoy sunlight lighting or warming ME. I hate sun on me. Hate tans, hate sunburns, hate the feel of the heat of the sun. I am actually dreading the greenhouses today because the sun just doesn't quit over there.

5. When you attend a bridal/baby shower, do you prefer to bring your own gift or chip in with others to buy a larger gift?
I am almost never invited to bridal/baby showers. Thank you, thank you ladies who get married and have babies for NOT inviting me. Going to showers is torture. I just cannot sit there. So, generally I send a gift along with someone who can actually stand going to showers and it is usually something I picked or made myself.

6. Would you rather have a FREE week of having your house cleaned or all of your meals cooked for you and your family?
I would love to have my house cleaned, but to do that, I would actually have to move all the stuff. Cleaners don't move stuff, so if I have to move everything, I may as well clean. That's the easy part. Cooking is no problem either. It's the clean up. So if i could have someone move all the stuff, I would rather have someone clean than cook.

7. What song describes your mood today?
"I Wish It Would Rain Down" by Phil Collins

8. What is something you received for your own bridal shower/wedding that you still own or use? (If you are not married, feel free to sub a gift you received a long time ago.)
I still possess a great wooden salad bowl given to me by Nana. It came from the Welch Company in Scituate Harbor.

9. Your favorite flavor of ice cream is?
Mint Chocolate Chip.

10. When was the last time you felt "tested?"
Every day of my life I feel tested.

11. "Mint Milano cookies is a food that once I start eating I find really hard to stop."

12. "Hunger (or the threat of)" is the best motivation.

Grab some coffee and head over to Lidna's place 2nd Cup of Coffee to check out more Random Dozen.


  1. Love me some mint chocolate chip ice cream! And Mint Milanos are definitely delish!

  2. You and Amoeba won't have to share much of that mint chocolate chip ice cream with me.

    It is raining here.

    How about you just get someone to do the dishes after you cook?
