ONE of many, many Random Dozen....


It’s Wednesday, and you know that that means? Lidna continues with the Random Dozen over at 2nd Cup. Play along and then link up. This week’s theme is ONE.


If you can, be sure to visit others and leave at least ONE nice word.

(Because Linda is one of the few people who read my blog I resisted the temptation to insert “One” from A Chorus Line since her appreciation for musical theater is, shall we say, NOT developed.



1. What is one really fast, know-by-heart "go-to" meal to fix in a pinch?

Quesedillas….with or without chicken. And I ALWAYS have tortillas on hand.

2. What is one item you won't leave home without. (Purse and license do not count.)

I won’t leave without having to come back inside for something I’ve forgotten, at least once, does that count?

3. Where is one place you never tire of visiting?

The beach, specifically Hawaii.

4. Share one factoid of your family's history.

I am a 16th cousin to Robert E. Lee.

5. Complete this sentence: "Once upon a time I ...."

didn't have a computer at home. And thought this thing called “Windows” would slow me down, since I knew a little DOS…sigh...



6. If you could win a one year's supply of anything, what would it be?

If calories didn’t count, maybe Dark Cherry Mochas from Sbux? Or Chick-fil-A? But probably I should pick tortillas (see # 1), NO! I have it! Hair care by Mr. Johnny.

7. "One quirky thing you may not know about me is ...."

I used to deliver singing telegrams.

8. You have one dollar in your pocket. What will you buy?

Peanut M & M’s at the Dollar Tree.

9. "One thing that always makes me laugh is ...."

My husband. He’s one of the funniest guys I know!

10. What is one thing you could do today to help yourself reach a personal goal?

Step away from the bag of chips. Actually, I DID resist..and Lays Limon were on sale at the Smith’s for $1.98. I consider it a personal victory that I didn’t buy any.

11. What is one thing you could do today to bless someone else?

Pray, pray, pray.

12. What is one thing you're looking forward to soon?

School letting out for the summer. And then we go to Lives Ablaze Youth Camp. And then in August, I’ll be looking forward to school resuming.



Remember to leave a comment on last week’s # 150 post…deadline is Midnight MDT on Wednesday and the winner will win a Stand True T-shirt. Please pray for Tyler and that his fundraising goals will be met. You can scroll down to the next most recent post if you are led to make a donation yourself. Thanks!

Hair care! I should have said that!

I was tempted to post the cast of Glee singing U2's version of One...I felt like I had a lot going on in my post though and didn't need one more video link.

Fun answers!

Teresa Dawn said...

Good job on #10. I always consider it the same personal victory when I don't buy something haha

Kirsty said...

Love your answers! Well done on resisting the lure of the Limon chips

Critty said...

How in the world could I have forgotten Chick-fil-a! It is my favorite place.... A 1 year supply....yum!

And I so concur about the beach. Sigh. Now I am dreaming of it :)

Holly Solomon Barrett said...

Great answers - now just sing us a song!

Cathy said...

Ohhh I'd love to see a beach in Hawaii someday!

Mary said...

Dark Cherry Mochas: Aren't they the BEST? I've discovered soy instead of milk: it doesn't upset my stomach so I can really enjoy them!
Quesadillas: OF COURSE! Even if they're just cheese...I always have tortillas & cheese. #'s 9 & 12 were my answers (except for the part about going to camp!).
Enjoyed your answers!

Great job on resisting the chip purchase! That is always hard for me to do! I also like your answer on how to bless someone!

Great job!

Jill said...

Great answers! I wish I could keep tortillas on hand. My boys eat them like candy!

Susanne said...

#2 cracked me right up because that is soooo me! LOL. Good to know someone else out there does that.

Limon Lays? I don't think we have that flavor here in Canada. My waistline says it's probably a good thing we don't.

Mocha with Linda said...

Love me some peanut M&Ms.

And your comment about One from A Chorus Line cracked me up. You need to come visit my RD post!

i eat wasabi on 3 things usually:
sushi...california rolls
or
honey-baked ham sandwiches
or
thickly-sliced roasted chicken sammies...yummy!
it has the flavor of horseradish but doesn't linger as long
