1. When was the last time you craved a food--what was it, and did you cave?
Since I've started working out again, I tend to crave almonds. (huh?) I don't know why...but I loooooove them. And they're healthy, too, so yeah, I cave.
These are my favorite...with Sea Salt. They aren't as salty as regular ones. And I know it's more healthy to eat them raw with NO salt, but come on, we're talking about cravings here.
2. M & M's or Skittles?
Now I do like me some Skittles sometimes. It's fun to mix the flavors up and see what concoctions can be had. But I most definitely prefer chocolate over non-chocolate, so that would be the M & M's.
3. Have you ever read the Bible completely through?
Not all the way straight through, I'm sad to say. I have read the whole thing, just in different order at different times.
4. How long does it take you to really wake up in the morning?
I'm going to say about 30 minutes. I have been getting up at 4 am (or close to it) to go to the gym before DH needs to leave for work. That necessitates WAKING UP.
5. Have you ever been on a cruise? If not, would you like to?
Yes! When I was four, my grandpa told me that he would take me on the "Love Boat" for my 16th birthday (loved that show). So every time I went to his house, I would tell him, "Grandpa, are you saving your money to take me on the Love Boat?"
So the summer before my 16th birthday, my grandpa kept his promise. Every year he and my grandma would go on vacation somewhere; they would take turns choosing their destination, and that year was my grandpa's choice. Little did we know it would be his last year to choose.
He really wanted to go to Alaska, but I had a tropical cruise pictured in my head since I was a girl, so he took me and grandma to the Bahamas. It was fantastic...and a blast to spend with them. I'll never forget it.
6. Who is your favorite actress?
Hmmmm...I have several that come to mind. Which is strange, because I don't watch very much TV or movies. For the most part, I enjoy Meg Ryan, Sandra Bullock, and Michelle Pfeiffer.
7. ______ is something that I will just never understand.
8. How much of a technology junkie are you?
I used to be on the cutting edge of technology when I worked...like a decade ago. But since then, not so much. The most technology I experience now is my iphone. And that took some getting used to.
9. Do you enjoy selecting greeting cards for people, or is it more of a cultural "have to" for you?
I love selecting cards for people, when I remember to do it. My problem is whether to choose a humorous or a meaningful, sentimental one. I have been known to give two for the same occasion.
10. When was the last time you got a new style/haircut?
New haircut? November 2009. New style? September 1983.
Well, there is one exception to that. In 2006 my mom gave me a straightener. Same haircut, just straight instead of curly. I think it's fair to say that I'm a chicken when it comes to hair.
11. What do you enjoy shopping for most?
Good deals! I absolutely LOVE getting a bargain. After Christmas sales for next year are especially fun.
I also love shopping for old books.
12. What's the last thing you think of before you leave the house?
"Do I have my phone?" That's not a bend-the-universe kind of answer, but it's the truth.
Now you can go see my friend, Lidna (ha ha...I accidentally typed "Lidan" and had to correct her misspelled name. Her name is really Linda. Anyway.) Go see her and all the other crazy, fun-loving peoples who participated in this week's Random 12!
