Random Dozen Meme #3!

I originally discovered this meme at Barbara's blog who found it at Linda's blog! You are welcome to join in with us if you'd like! Please leave a comment to let me know if you participated!!! :-)

1. Please share one middle school memory. It can be good, bad, ugly, funny. Pictures or words, I don't care, just share.
Okay, I didn't go to a middle school. Our 7th and 8th grade was kind of separate from the high school kids and grade school, though. I experienced my first kiss in 7th grade! It was awful!!! :-) Talk about "gnashing of teeth"! And that is all I have to say about that! LOL

2. What's your favorite Beatles song?
When I Saw Her Standin' There
This was one of their early songs and I have memories of them strumming their guitars, Ringo playing the drums and them shaking their "long" hair about as they sang it! :-)

3. If I asked you to describe your most comfortable outfit, what would it be?
Does my nightgown count? No? :-)
Well, it would have to be one of my black straight skirts ( I have several.), my pink t-shirt top, and my pink,white, and black print georgette over-blouse! It is my go-to outfit for most any occasion!

4. Would you rather host a party or be a guest?
Oh, I'd much rather be a guest, these days. Hosting a party is so much work though I used to enjoy having them so much. I love it best when a group of us can host!

5. Do you think we will move completely from traditional books to digital ones, and if we do, are you OK with that?
Oh, I can't ever see us going to all digital books because there is nothing like holding the book, turning the pages and the smell of the paper and all. It is a sensory experience that could never be replaced with a hard plastic digital device! Ever!

6. Do you learn best by reading, listening or experiencing?
I believe that I learn best by experiencing though I've not proven this scientifically but it is how I tend to teach others, whether it is piano lessons, computer, etc.

7. If you are (or when you were) single, what is the kiss of death for you concerning the opposite sex? (That is, what is one trait or behavior or habit or anything at all that immediately turns you off from considering that person a potential match for you?)
Manners and language skills.
I actually broke up with a great guy because he ate like it was his last meal...everytime! He took me out for a wonderful dinner where he had a t-bone steak. After eating all of the meat that he could cut off the bone, he picked up the bone and commenced to chewing on it! I about died! AND he smacked his lips horribly, licked his fingers. I tried to get past this, as we dated for several months but I just couldn't do it. I cringed every time we ate anywhere, whether it was at home or out some where.

8. Snacks. Salty or sweet?
Definitely salty! I loooooove chips!

9. Look around you in a four foot radius. What object is around you that you didn't realize was there or forgot was there? How long has it been there?
Hmmm....a book that I've been meaning to read: Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World by Joanna Weaver. I really do need to read this book!

10. What is your favorite Tom Cruise movie?
Mission Impossible and The Last Samurai (I couldn't choose!)

11. You buy a bottle of shampoo and discover that you don't like what it does to your hair at all. What do you do with that full bottle?
Give it to a family member or friend! Or Ed might possibly use it! :-)

12. Your favorite Fall comfort food? (Last week it was beverage.)
Hmmm......Pumkin pie with Cool Whip? Or possibly potato soup with corn muffins? Or hot dogs roasted over an open fire? We're having our annual church weiner roast this Friday night! I loooooove hot dogs roasted until they are almost burnt, on a soft bun, with mustard! Yum!! :-)
