Random Dozen!

It Wednesday! That means it's time for Wednesday's Random Dozen Meme hosted by Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee! You can join the fun by clicking HERE!!
1. When was the last time you craved a food--what was it, and did you cave?
Would you believe yesterday? AND it was a Big Mac! Yes, a Big Mac! I cannot tell you the last time that I had one AND there is just NOTHING like a Big Mac. Sooooo, after Jaylon went home yesterday evening, I drove into town, purchased a value meal, came home and savored each and every bite! :-) It was delicious!

2. M & M's or Skittles?
Definitely M&M's and I prefer peanut, please! :-)

3. Have you ever read the Bible completely through?
Yes, I did last year -2009-for the first time!

4. How long does it take you to really wake up in the morning?
Just a very few minutes actually. I am one of those morning people! You know.....who sings and talks and all of that upon waking, though not in an annoyingly noisy way. I'm kind of quiet about it all, out of consideration for those around me. :-)

5. Have you ever been on a cruise? If not, would you like to?
No, I've never been but I think I would like to go on one.

6. Who is your favorite actress?
Hmmmm......I don't know that I have one favorite actress and if I start naming who I do like then I'll probably end up not naming some that I REALLY like! BUT, to name a few, Glenn Close, Meryl Streep, Judy Dench, Susan Sarandon, ......that's really all I can think of at the moment.

7. ______ is something that I will just never understand.
How anyone can/could abuse a baby or a child or kill their child/children. Never. Ever.

8. How much of a technology junkie are you?
Oh, I'm not much of one at all. I have my desktop here and a very basic cellphone. That's it for me!

9. Do you enjoy selecting greeting cards for people, or is it more of a cultural "have to" for you?
When I shop for cards to send to people, I do enjoy reading the cards to the point that I have to be careful that I don't take too much time browsing! :-) (I'm that person you see standing there laughing while looking at cards!)

10. When was the last time you got a new style/haircut?
Oh my......it has been awhile since I've done either. My hair hasn't been cut for many, many years and while I haven't completely changed my hairstyle, I do alter it a bit now and again.

11. What do you enjoy shopping for most?
Nothing. I do not like to shop. At all. Although, online shopping has made it a bit more bearable.....IF I have to.

12. What's the last thing you think of before you leave the house?
Is everything turned off? Do I have my car keys? Lord, please go with me/us and grant us a safe trip.

You and I had the same answer for #7. It's unbelievable what some people will do.

And I do the same with haircuts...I get about 2 a year. I have long hair, so I don't have to do the every-6-week haircuts. At least for now. :-)

Have a great day!

Susanne said...

Definitely with you on #7.

Definitely not with you on #4. LOL. I am so not a morning person and singing is definitely not on my mind at that time. LOL.

Jewel said...

Hi Chels! Thanks for stopping by! It took me awhile to think of what I would put on #7, but I was taking care of my little grandson when it came to me!
Hey, Susanne! I never really understood people who are not morning people until I discovered that a very good friend of mine is not a morning persona and we took a short vacay together. NOW I understand, totally! :-)

Amy said...

I am a morning person too...and I do keep it down for those around me...ha ha.

I also enjoy a good greeting card and really have to watch myself so they don't kick the crazy lady out of aisle 12...

Great answers

Barbara H. said...

We sound alike about greeting cards.

Your answer to #7 is very sobering. I don't understand that, either.

Joyce said...

You're the first one I read who is a morning person like me. I think we'd annoy a lot of people if we were together too early in the day : )

Jewel said...

It's difficult sometimes, isn't it, Amy? Especially if we wake up extra-exuberantly?! LOL
Hi Barbara....yes, I looove looking at greeting cards and though I haven't been in a Hallmark store for years, they always had the best!
We just might, Joyce! ;-)

I don't crave Big Macs but I do crave McDonald's fries. Sometimes they are the only thing that hits the spot!

Cathy said...

I agree with your #7. And it seems most everyone loves M&M's and a lot of them like the peanut kind! Well, at least of the ones I've read so far. lol

Hey, kara! My favorite fries are actually from Rally's! :-) Though McDonald's are a good second choice if they are fresh and salted! :-)
Hi Cathy! thanks for stopping by! Oh, M&M Peanut are the best! :-) But I don't want them all of the time or very often BUT if I am going to eat candy, those are one of my first choices AFTER Snickers!
