Random Dozen — Luck of the Twelve

1. On a scale of 1-10, how superstitious are you, honestly.

2. Julius Caesar is quoted as saying, “I came, I saw, I conquered.” Which circumstance or experience of yours does this saying best describe?

3. If I peeked in on your day like a mischievous little leprechaun, at what time would I most likely find you blogging?
What time wouldn’t you find me blogging?

4. Re springing forward for Daylight Saving Time, is there anything you’ve ever been really early or really late for?
In my adult years? No. When I was a kid, Gram was late for church twice a year and me with her.

5. What are you most looking forward to concerning Spring?
It’s here! All “looking forward” has turned to enjoyment.

6. Shamrocks are the national flower of Ireland and are picked on St. Patrick’s Day and worn on the lapel or shoulder. Do you wear green on St. Patty’s Day?
Yes, but then I wear green most everyday.

7. One of Caesar’s assassins, Casca, said, “But, for my own part, it was Greek to me,” which of course means he didn’t understand something. Probably his own lines in the play. Anyway, what is something that is “Greek to you,” something incomprehensible or indecipherable?
How God can still love mankind in spite of the horrors we’ve committed.

8. Is March behaving more like a lion or a lamb where you live?
March is schizophrenic. Always has been, always will be.

9. “An extra yawn one morning in the springtime, an extra snooze one night in the autumn is all that we ask in return for dazzling gifts. We borrow an hour one night in April; we pay it back with golden interest five months later.” -Winston Churchill. If you had one extra hour per day every day, what would you do with it?
I’d like to say, “clean house” but the truth is, I’d probably blog.

10. Legend says that every Leprechaun has a pot of gold hidden deep in the Irish countryside. Aside from real gold or money, what material item would be in your dream pot of gold?
???? I can’t think of much I want that I don’t already have.

11. “The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God just before you.” Robert Louis Stevenson. Look around you right now and tell us about something essential or beautiful very near you that you take for granted every day.

12. Just for a bit o’ fun, click here ( and then report your Irish name.

    1. Barbara I was out of the house most of Wednesday, too. I did this late because I was too tired to do anything requiring original thought.

  1. ROFLMBO! At your Number 10!!! HOW can you say that when at least a couple times a week you are blogging about something you WANT! Patio furniture, a clock, bedroom furniture… put THOSE in your POT! LOL!

    I always thought of March as bi-polar — but schizophrenic works well too! 🙂

    And LOVED #2 — yea… I’ve conquered a few of them myself!!!

    (so PROUD of you for the 2 tbsp ice cream! You GO girl!!!)

    1. Melli — you shouldn’t take those paid posts too seriously — though actually I do have lots of “wants”, they just aren’t of a size I would call important, or of significant enough value that they come immediately to the forefront of my mind.

  2. #2 – LOL! yeah, if there’s no room for anything else, some can be found for dessert 😉

    schizophrenic is a very good description for march
