Twice in one week!

I figured since I'm off for spring break I'd try another post. Today I'll play along with 2nd Cup of Coffee and her Random Dozen.

1. Ever had any run-ins with the "library police?" I don't remember...I tend to block things like that out of my mind. If I have, it was probably at college although that library was always loud. It was the place to be in the evenings.

2. Do you have a special organizational plan and place for wrapping paper, gift bags, etc., or do you just purchase whatever you need as you give gifts?
I do keep all my wrapping stuff in one place but I usually purchase whatever I need as I give a gift.

3. Have you ever been in (first-hand witness) a natural disaster?
I remember in high school, we were in the area I now live at a band competition. The venue was changed and when we drove to the new venue someone said we drove through a tornado. Does that count?

4. What's your favorite Barry Manilow song? Who? OK...I had to go look at his songs first. My favorite is a toss up between Copacabana and Bandstand Boogie.

5. What's the best costume you've ever worn?
Witch...I even made a spider necklace.

6. Which do you use more often, the dictionary or the thesaurus? dictionary

7. What's your favorite breakfast food? biscuits...they're not just for breakfast anymore

8. Have you ever purchased anything from an infomercial?
no...unless QVC or HSN counts as an infomercial

9. Have you ever crawled through a window?
hilarious! I don't remember (I have a short memory)...but I dreamt last night that I did!

10. Do you believe in love at first sight? I believe it can happen, but not for me.

11. How man pairs of jeans do you own?

12. If someone were going to bake a cake to honor/represent you, what would it be? (Think creatively, like Duff and Crew on "Ace of Cakes.")
They can make some creative cakes!! For me, the cake should be a marble cake with many layers...sports mom, teacher, wife, daughter, sister...etc., etc.

Wow! All that thinking made my head hurt. Now I know how some of my students feel!

Until next time.


  1. Hi Tina-

    I've enjoyed reading your responses to Random Dozen. It's a terrific meme. I've always liked a good meme and now I have started my own. We just started a new meme called "Wednesday Wickedness" and will post on Tuesday afternoons. You are welcome to do it on Tuesdays, if you do only one meme a day! We are up and posted now. Each week we pick a famous person and find 10 quotes. Then each question is based on the quotes! This week is George Clooney. Check us out at


  2. Welcome to the Random Dozen! Linda comes up with some good ones, for sure! How weird that you dreamed about crawling through a window last night! I think you may have been with me when I had to climb through the basement window to get in one time, but you probably weren't the one who did the actual crawling! Guess you were already gone when I was blaring Barry Manilow!

  3. Welcome to the Random! And I definitely think QVC's tv shopping : )

  4. Hi Tina - Welcome to the blogosphere! Nice to connect with you. I'm with you on Copa will be in my head all day now thank you very much. And my kids are always trying to get me to buy stuff from infomercials...."You need this!"

  5. I loved reading your post. I like Copa Cabana mom was the infomercial buying queen...if it was as seen on tv...she had it. I am still finding this stuff stuck in nooks and crannies at her house as we clean it out.
