Wednesday's Random Dozen/Olympic Version :-)

It's time for another Wednesday Random Dozen which is hosted by Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee. If you would like to join in the fun and meet other bloggers, just click on Linda's blog and join the fun! :-)

1. If you could compete in one Olympic event (not necessarily winter sports) what would it be?
You're kidding, right? :-0
Okayyyy....at this point in my life, I'm going with shooting in the Summer Olympics,k?

2. Do remember a specific Olympic moment from the past?
I remember the women's skating when Oksana Baiul won the gold in 1994. I thought her skating was beyond beautiful. Her program was either called The Dying Swan or that was the name of the song she skated to and she wore a feathered camp headpiece. It was beautiful.
Also, Paul Wylie skating to the theme song from Schindler's List in 1994 at the World Professional Championship and, if I remember correctly, he won! He is my all-time favorite male skater. He puts so much feeling and emotion into his performances.

3. Have you ever known anyone who competed in the Olympics?

4. If everyday activities were Olympic-worthy, which activity would you have a gold medal in?
My husband would say: Fixing a delicious meal in just a few minutes! :-) And he should know!

5. Do you know anything about your ethnic heritage?
The only thing I know about my heritage is that Peters, which is my maiden name, is of German origin.

6. Do you enjoy sleeping late?
No, I love early morning, seeing the sunrise, and getting a good start on the day. That being said, I love taking an afternoon nap! :-)

7. Have you ever performed CPR on anyone? Do you know how? (Yes, that's two, I know. Whatevs.)
No, but I know the basics of CPR. I need to take a refresher course!

I have performed the Heimlich maneuver on three people. Two of them were choking on breath mints and one on a piece of meat. It was a bit frightening but thankfully, I knew what to do and did it!

8. Name one country you'd like to visit and explain why.
I've always wanted to visit England. I'm not really sure why. It has just always intrigued me. Now, I know you HAVE to see London when you go, but I would mostly want to visit the countrysides, the coastlines. I just want to see it all!

9. Have you ever fixed up a couple romantically?
Oh yes! Actually, I've fixed up a few couples!

10. What is the last book you read?
Besides my Bible, it would be The Choice by Nicholas Sparks! He is one of my favorite authors!

11. If you could spend the winter somewhere else besides cold, snowy Ohio (where I live) or wherever you happen to live, where would it be?

Hmmm.......my first thought would lead me to say Florida, but maybe Arizona would be an idea, too?

In all honesty, at this point in my life, I couldn't see myself leaving little Jaylon, my family, siblings or church for very long. :-) But you never know.......things change.

12. What is your favorite meal at your favorite restaurant?
It would have to be all-the-way pizza at Pizza Crossing! Now, you may say, "Pizza?", but you would have to taste this pizza to understand. It is the BEST!!!!! :-)

Well, I don't know if they are really talents, but, thank you, Mrs. NB! :-) You are so kind!

Joyce said...

I loved The Help!

I can see how pizza could be a favorite meal...we hardly ever have it these days since we are sorta trying to watch what we eat but I do love it.

Jewel said...

Hi Joyce! Veggie pizza is really delicious and you can go with thin and crispy, go easy on the cheese! :-)

It's so nice to "meet" you here. I love that you live where you were raised and that you are so connected there. In this day and age where so many of us move regularly, this sounds heavenly. Love your answers to the meme.... especially the pizza; I'm so jealous ~ still haven't found a good place in our new town!

Pizza's one of my favorite meals!

Have you ever read Sisterchicks go Brit? It's about two friends who visit England -- funny but some good lessons, too.

Nel said...

Enjoyed your answers. Arizona, you have to watch, I have a friend living in Tucson who got belted with snow this year. It would be hard leaving the babies. I am 3 hours away from mine and sometimes that is to far. Good luck in the giveaway at my place. Hope you have a good weekend!

until next time... nel

Paul Wylie is one of my all time favorite skaters ever! I'll never forget when he skated to "Sing Hallelujah". Breathtaking!

Jewel said...

Hi Kim....yes, I've lived in the same county all of my life. It is a beautiful area, our hometown is a wonderful place where everyone knows everyone, and I surely hope you find a pizza place that you love SOON! :-)
Pizza is my favorite food group, Barbara! :-) I'll jot that title down and give it a try! Thanks!
Wow! Snow in Arizona? Hmm...that kind of sounds like a song,huh? :-) I'm excited about the giveaway!

Hi Susanne! I'll have to have a look at that video, too. I couldnt' believe that there were videos of his skating on YouTube! How wonderful to still be able to watch him skate!
