Walking on Sunshine

Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet. Internet restored @ home!! To celebrate, I'm participating in my first-cousin-once-removed's meme, "Random Dozen." Kinda like the Dirty Dozen, only randomer.

Be sure to check on her site and see the other participants.

1. When you go to Wowmart, what one thing do you get every single time, besides a funky-wheeled squeaking cart full of frustration? Milk, milk, and more milk. We're loving the dairy products around here.

2. What is something that people are currently "into" that you just don't get or appreciate? Twitter. Yes, I have an account. Yes, I just updated it today, but that was the first time in a month. Even if I had had internet all month, I wouldn't have tweeted more frequently than that.

3. What is something that really hoists your sail that other people might feel "ho-hum" about? Musicals. Ahem, Lid. :)

4. Favorite song to sing in the shower or car? That Thing You Do from the movie by the same name. It's more a driving song for me than a shower song.

5. A really great salad must have this ingredient: Spinach. And that's all I have to say about that.

6. Advice in a nutshell to new bloggers (one or two sentences): Don't take advice from a blogger who has had a blog for five years yet only has 250 posts.

7. What was the alternate name that your parents almost named you? Do you wish they had chosen it instead of the one they gave you? If I had been a boy, my parents would have named me Michael Landon Cole. Wow. The coolness of Little House on the Prairie aside, I think it's a little creepy to name a child so closely after a star. I'm glad I turned out to be a girl.

8. What in your life are you waiting for? I'm not dying or anything, but every day something in me looks for heaven a little more intently. I can't help but think about how much more complete and perfect heaven will be.

9. You get a package in the mail. What is it, and who is it from? It is a super-fabulous small something that I never knew I needed, and it's from Janna, who has great taste. (PS - Janna, just about a month till my 30th birthday. Just sayin'...)

10. Today--what song represents you? Walking on Sunshine. 28 days without internet has come to a close, and I can finally work from home again.

11. What is one thing that blogging has taught you about yourself? It hasn't so much taught as confirmed that I am AWFUL at keeping in touch. Sorry to everyone who's been friends with me at some point in my life and then neglected.

12. How are you going to (or how did you) choose the clothes you're wearing today? What do they say about you in general or specifically how you're feeling today? A blouse and capris say that I had to be professionally dressed today, but my inner self is reveling in this made-to-order cooler, sunny weather.

I hope you enjoyed the randomness. I'd love to see some from you.

Love it! Are you sure you're not my daughter instead of cousin once-removed? First of all, "Walking on Sunshine" is probably in my top 5 all-time favorite songs. Secondly, I love the name Michael Landon and considered both at one time for one of my kids. I think I was going to switch them, though. Twitter-same here. Number 6 cracked me up. Welcome back to the world. The www. world.

I love #6! And how could I forget the milk?

You're a second cousin once removed from my friend Lid? So cool to meet you. I never knew she had bloggin' cousins.

I don't get Twitter and would be about the same as you if I had an account.

Just stopping by from Lid's place...you've got some fun answers here! I have to say that #8 is probably my fave.

Nice to *meet* you!

BTW, how's it feel to be related to a CELEBRITY??! :-)

I came on over from Linda's too. Congrats on getting your internet service back. I can't imagine not having it for that long.

Great blogging advice! :)
