†♥Random Dozen♥†♥September 29, 2010♥†

Welcome to another fun round of the Random Dozen, hosted by Linda each week at her blog.

On with the show!

1. Do you believe, somewhere deep inside, that blondes do indeed have more fun? That they are "dumber" than brunettes or redheads? Be honest! No way. I have many in my family and they are just as intelligent, down to earth, and normal as the rest of us. Your intelligence, personality, or social capability has nothing to do with your hair...besides, we all KNOW it's redheads who are smarter and have the most fun! :o)

2. Which animal would you most like to observe in its wild habitat? The North American Black Squirrel!! It's wild habitat is Toronto!!

3. This week the U.N. announced that Dr. Mazlan Othman has been appointed the official "Alien Ambassador," should any extraterrestrials contact us. Have you, or has anyone you know, ever seen a UFO? I'm pretty sure I've seen a few. Once in the high desert in California, near Quartz Hill; a couple times near my aunt's farm near Pittsfield here in Maine, a few times near our old place around Cornville and one so far here at our new place.

4. Name your favorite Hitchcock film. The Birds. It is really the only one I can watch...

5. Would you rather spend time at the library, the mall, a craft store or home? The library! I was there yesterday, and again just this morning. I love, love, love, love the library!

6. Which Disney princess is your favorite? (Or Disney character, if you are a guy) Ariel, because she has red hair like me and an awesome voice and she was a mermaid

7. What kind of art is your favorite? Photography.

8. How do you feel about viral videos, that is, videos made by amateurs that end up on Youtube receiving thousands of hits? I think it all depends on the content and what happens to the Justin Bieber, for example? I don't think that he is as great as some people seem to think and I feel that if every pop-star wannabe put up a video on YouTube and the kids from their school sent out links and blogged and tweeted and embedded them to Facebook as well then there would be a LOT MORE Justin Bieber's in this world. Now, I can sit and watch Jack Vale videos all day and of course some of the best Rush concert vids are posted by amateurs...

9. Where do you buy your jeans? Tractor Supply Company!! I ONLY wear Wrangler Cowboy Cuts.

10. Tell me about your first automobile accident. Ummm, this is real embarrassing but here goes: I didn't get my license until the day after my 18th birthday. I drove to school the next day in my mom's car and on the way home I stopped to get a Latte at Starbucks right near school...the latte slipped out of the cupholder and when I leaned over to grab it I jumped the curb and hit a fire hydrant...bright yellow fire hydrant and small white car...

11. Have you ever been honest when you knew you would benefit more if you would be dishonest? Absolutely. I could have told dad the school bus backed into me or something...but I told him about the hydrant and because I was honest the only punishment was that I was not supposed to drive to Starbucks. But when he wanted a coffee one day and I was driving I told him "Sorry, Dad. You said I can't drive there." He lifted the ban ;-)

12. If you were appointed "Ambassador to Aliens," what would you show and tell first about life on Earth? What would be the most difficult thing to explain? The Food!! Simply because I don't think evangelizing to aliens would work too well...but perhaps the hardest thing to explain would be our music.


  1. Enjoyed your answers! Woohoo Photography!
    until next time... nel

  2. I can totally picture the car accident.
    Are you Canadian? I have a good friend in the Toronto area and I'm hoping to get there one of these days.

  3. Oh my...your accident story had me laughing! Last summer, my daughter ran into the building she works in. Oops. Of course, we didn't ban her from going there. *wink*
