RANDOM DOZEN…my first of 2010



1. When was the last time you craved a food--what was it, and did you cave?

My last craving was the beef tenderloin prepared by the chef at our ‘Chritmas @ the beach’ house…it was awesome and I wonderfully caved, enjoyed every bite.

Proverbs 10:3
The LORD will not allow the righteous to hunger,But He will reject the craving of the wicked.

2. M & M's or SkittleS?

SKITTLES, their fruitiness makes my mouth happy

Hebrews 12:11
All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.

3. Have you ever read the Bible completely through?

NOT ENTIRELY, but 70% of it…during Disciple I Bible study. All four of their 36-week studies are very detailed…if you’ve not done them, I highly recommend them. They CHANGED my relationship with Christ and my community.

4. How long does it take you to really wake up in the morning?

Probably about 15 minutes…once I’ve brushed my teeth, I’m good to go straight for my one cup of joe….

Proverbs 27:14
If you wake your friend in the early morning by shouting "Rise and shine!" It will sound to him more like a curse than a blessing.

5. Have you ever been on a cruise? If not, would you like to?

Our honeymoon was our first and only cruise, so far. Tampa/Cozumel/Cancun…it was that ship’s last public voyage--aGreek tycoon was buying it for his personal use.

Funny thing though…it caught fire in the engine room the night before we were disembark for Cancun…they put us on emergency government boats about 2 miles out from Playa del Carmen; we had to find rides to Cancun! What a day…

We’re hoping to go to Alaska and visit Sarah one day soon :)

6. Who is your favorite actress?

Ingrid Bergman’s old movies intrigue me, she’s witty, mysterious and gorgeous all wrapped up in one.

7. ______ is something that I will just never understand.

‘WEARING YOUR PANTS BELOW YOUR BOHUNKUS, stretched across your thighs having to waddle as you try to walk’, that’s what I WILL NEVER understand.

Proverbs 30:18
[ Four Mysteries ] Three things amaze me, no, four things I'll never understand— how an eagle flies so high in the sky, how a snake glides over a rock, how a ship navigates the ocean, why adolescents act the way they do.

8. How much of a technology junkie are you?

Technology always excites me, so I jump in and learn how to work the various contraptions…but I don’t HAVE to go out and buy them right away. I like for a lot of their bugs to get worked out and then buy them once the general population has grown bored with them, then I can afford them :)

9. Do you enjoy selecting greeting cards for people, or is it more of a cultural "have to" for you?

You can often find me standing in the greeting card section of the grocery store, drug store, dollar store, WOWmart…I love the originality of cards--like to find the JUST RIGHT card for THE occasion.

1 Corinthians 16:20
All the friends here say hello. Pass the greetings around with holy embraces!

10. When was the last time you got a new style/haircut?

AFTER MY “H” and enduring all my ‘mones being blown to oblivion, as my personal tropical vacations became my norm…the hair had TO GO; with my face shape an angle cut supposedly would help break up the ROUNDNESS…and the lack of long locks has helped my head, at least, be a little cooler.

1 Peter 3:1
What matters is not your outer appearance—the styling of your hair, the jewelry you wear, the cut of your clothes—but your inner disposition.

11. What do you enjoy shopping for most?

Shopping is a sport for me…I like to find bargains (goal) and it doesn’t matter what it is…cologne, makeup, shoes, used furniture/household items. I can come home with nothing…still would have enjoyed the day LOOKING.

Psalm 4:6-8 (The Message)

“Why is everyone hungry for more? "More, more," they say. "More, more." I have God's more-than-enough, more joy in one ordinary day than they get in all their shopping sprees.”

12. What's the last thing you think of before you leave the house?

There have been many bottles of water left on my kitchen counter, some days I actually remember to pick it up and take it with me.

Exodus 12:21
”Moses assembled all the elders of Israel… No one is to leave the house until morning. God will pass through to strike Egypt down.”

The pants thing....OMGosh I totally forgot about that one.

Loved the accompanied scripture you're on fire (in a good Holy Spirit kind of way, not a it's really hot in here kinda way) this morning girl!


Deb said...

Loved your #7!! How can it possibly be comfortable to walk around with your pants strapped to your thighs??????? I find myself needing to go behind these guys, grab their belt loops and give their pants a good yank!!! If I'm successful...a powerful wedgie will take effect!!!! :o)
Have a wonderful day!!

sara said...

oh my word, the pants thing......ridiculous!!!!

I love me a good bargain!!!

Mocha with Linda said...

Loved your answers! #4 cracked me up.

And amen to the pants. I saw a guy the other day that I just knew was going to have his pants drop to his ankles.

I have to agree with you on the guy pants thing. I will never understand this mentality or logic behind it. I've even seen girls trying this look and it frightens me.

I look at technology the same way, I could avoid it but since we are headed that way anyway, why not embrace the change that could make things easier for us. I, like you, wait for the newness to wear off my like LCD big screen HD TVs. They are almost reasonable now.

I enjoy perusing the random thoughts you and others share, though I must confess I'm not a very random-thinking sort of girl (old lady).


Kim said...

Loved all the verses you found to go along with your answers! How fun :-)

This is the best meme, because we get to know each other better. AND because the answers can be so dadburn funny! hahahaha #7 has been a hoot to read on everyone's blogs!

Nel said...

I agree with the pants thing... in fact I tried to get my hubby to stop yesterday while we were driving down a side road. There was a boy on each side of the road with his pants hanging down, I wanted to get out and pull them up for them. He wouldn't stop... the nerve!

Cathy said...

I agree with your #7. Why do they do that?

Susanne said...

"Bohunkus" made me laugh out loud. Hilarious. And I totally agree.

Beef Tenderloin is sounding yummy right now!

I always love to learn new vocabulary when I blog surf. "Bohunkus," for example, was a brand new one for me today. I'm sure my familiy will thank you profusely when I practice this on them in order to work it into my everyday speech.
