Just Get It Over With

I hate posting after a long silence. It feels like it should be some sort of ultra-creative or thought-provoking diatribe.

This ain't.

But it IS my answer's to first-cousin-once-removed Linda's Random Dozen. :)

1. How do you feel about "Gladiator" sandals, also called "Roman" or "Jesus" sandals? A fashion yea or nay? Big ol' NAY. Really, people, they don't do anything wonderful for anyone that I've ever seen. I'm pretty sure Jesus would have rather gone barefoot instead of wearing those, but there was just too much camel dung on the roads.

2. What is your favorite pizza? I like lots of veggies but not so much on the meat. Is there a name for that? Also, ham and pineapple.

3. There are plans in the works to sell roughly 1,000 items from Star Trek: The Experience in Las Vegas. This means you could buy Picard's chair for your family room. If not a Star Trek item, what prop, background, set, etc. from what TV or movie would you buy if you could?
[Ex: Hurley's "I Love my Shih tzu" shirt from LOST, the plantation home "Tara" from Gone With the Wind, or Tracy's tambourine from the Partridge Family.] I would get the front porch of the Gilmore Girls' house in Stars Hollow, or the whole house if I'm allowed to take that much.

4. Name a local food or restaurant that your area is famous for. There is a wonderful restaurant in Upland, IN, called Ivanhoe's. Famous for having a gazillion ice cream combos and spectacular food. A definite MUST-TRY if you're ever in this neck of the woods.

5. What is your current favorite snack? I really like dried cranberries. Unsweetened is my favorite, but they're a little more difficult to come by.

6. Hypothetical: You are required to be a reality show contestant. Which show would you choose based on your probability of success? (You cannot choose "none.")

A. Dancing with the Stars
B. Biggest Loser
C. Survivor

I chose DWTS, though I am not really into any of these shows this season. Probably because I have a good sense of timing in music.

7. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being uninhabitable and 10 being cleanliness that meets the standards of OCD, how clean is your vehicle's interior? This answer needs some qualification. There are two "zones" in my car: the kid zone (back) and the adult zone (front). At the moment, both are quite presentable, but under normal, build-up-over-time circumstances, the KZ would rate a 2, and the AZ would earn a 6 or 7.

8. It doesn't feel like Spring until the strawberry plants in the garden start flowering.

9. Something that made you laugh really hard recently is when Katy was mimicking one of her books entitled "What Is a Princess?" She started with "What Is a Girl?" and gave some characteristics that fit her, e.g. "A girl likes to play on the Wii." Then, in my honor, she moved onto "What Is a Woman?" She wagged her finger in the air and proclaimed, "A woman is the BOSS." HA!

10. Tell me about a goal you're working toward. Delivering a healthy baby at the end of June with minimal weight gain. So far, so decent. :)

11. Share a thought-provoking or inspiring quote this week. I've got nothing. Sorry.

12. Name one thing that you do as a parent that you absolutely know will make your kids happy. If you're not a parent, feel free to substitute "friend" or nomenclature that works for you. Turning on a movie. It's golden.
