Isaiah 6:8

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Random Almost Dozen

It is Wednesday and time for my weekly Random Dozen from Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee.  You will notice something a bit odd this week.....there are really only 11 questions.  It appears that number 4 went AWOL.  Oh well we will get along the best we can without him.  I am on vacation this week and on a mobile if pictures were asked for....unless if happens to be on this won't get them.  Enjoy the read.....laugh if you must.
1. Is there a word which you initially mispronounced? Were the circumstances in which you made the faux pas embarrassing? By the way, that's not "foax pass." (I know you know that. Just jokin' with ya.) Cinnamon was my big word....and I stumbled over the word English class and the more I tried to say it right....the worse it became.
2. How do you feel about the use of texting shortcuts and trends? (ex: "I've got ur notes. Get them 2 u 2morow.") Texting shortcuts are long as you use universally accepted ones.  I have a friend who makes them up as she goes and it could be any word....any time.  I have missed meeting her...because she took way too many shortcuts.
3. Tell me about your high school senior picture. Please feel free to post.  It had to be made twice.  The first time I had had pneumonia and was ghostly white....the photographer put too much make up on me trying to make me not so white and it was worse.  I went back two weeks later and had the ones we used made.

5. Share a high school or college homecoming memory.  I was in Youth for Christ.  We worked hard on our float for homecoming and several of the "service" organizations said we didn't stand a chance of winning best float....ours was Little Bo Peep says her prayers.....and we built a little girl saying her prayers at the foot of a four poster was awesome...and the judges thought so too....cause we won!  (The picture is of all of homecoming....ours is the bottom center pic).

6. Linda at Mocha with Linda wants to know: "Do you prefer sunrises or sunsets?"  I like them both equally as much....especially if I have a camera in my hand and I am in the mountains or at the beach.....I am headed to Cades Cove this get some sunrise pictures.
7. Lea at Cici's Corner asks, "What is something you have not done that you desire to do?"  I want to go to the two of the fifty states I have not been to yet, Alaska and Vermont....and then I want to go to Scotland and Germany.
8. Carol at Wanderings of an Elusive Mind ponders, "If you could come back [in another life] as an animal, which would it be?"  A a cat lovers house....because I want to be taken care of...and I love the attitude of a cat.
9. Joyce from The Other Side of the Pond is curious: "Where were you 10 years ago?" Please feel free to elaborate more than just your physical location. I was single with a daughter in college, working three jobs trying to make ends meet.
10. When you are proven to be correct in any contentious discussion, do you gloat?
Only if it is Frank.  He is always when I am is a red letter day and we party.  Actually...that is not entirely true....I don't challenge unless it is something that is going to matter in say....10 years.  Being right is not that important to me.....the person is that important....and so I usually just say, "you could be right....and leave it alone."  BUT if it is something that will matter in 10 years....I will argue it til the cows come home.
11. What is your favorite food which includes the ingredient "caramel?"  Caramel to dip apples in, caramel cake, chocolate covered caramels, caramel sauce on ice name it....I love it!
12. From my 17 year-old daughter to you: "If you could be part of any fictional family, which family would you choose and why?" (She's so cute. And clever.)  I AM....or WAS part of a fictional family growing up....My mom's name is Wilma, My dad's name was Fred....and everyone called me got it...."Pebbles!"

Wilma and Fred...I bet that did make for some teasing!

Jealous of your Cades Cove adventure! Hope you get some pretty's hard to take a bad picture there.

Thena said...

I am so jealous, all but two of the fifty states. Awesome!!

AuburnChick said...

Your homecoming float sounds very original! I miss those days!!

I can't believe you've been to almost every state too! You are a well-traveled woman!!

Inquiring minds want to know: did you wear your hair in a little palm tree pony tail on top of your head with a bone stuck thru it for ornamentation? I love it!

I used to think the word Yosemite was pronounced yo-sa-mite! I was about 12 before the light-bulb kicked in.

Hugs & love,

Pebbles - how cute!

It is hard to not gloat to our husbands when we are right!

I bet your float was fabulous. Working on a float is something I have never done.

Hope it wasn't too foggy for you this morning!
