Random Dozen #12--A Dozen Dozens--Get It??

A dozen dozens--oh that joke is rich. In my head.

This means, of course, that I have now conjured up 144 different questions (uh, aren't you glad they're different?) which have managed to draw interesting "reviews" from readers. Not all positive, but quirky is the new normal. Like Dwight Schrute.

I'm not sure how much longer I can keep coming up with riveting questions about bananas and first loves, but I'll try for a while longer. By the way, if you have any great questions, please send them to me and I will give you cred in the meme.

1. If you could master one sport, what would it be?

2. When you make a major purchase, do you go with your gut instinct, or do you do research to make an informed decision?

3. There is an old kids' game that says you can find out what your movie star name would be by using your middle name as your first name and the name of the street you grew up on as your last. What is your movie star name?

4. Would you rather give up your favorite music or your favorite food?

5. There are two types of banana preferences. One is pristine yellow, almost to the point of being green; the other is spotty and more ripe. Which is your preference?

6. Your favorite tree is?

7. On a scale of 1-10, how tech savvy are you?

8. Has H1N1 touched your family?

9. Are you an analytical person, or do you just accept things the way they are without questioning or scrutinizing?

10. Is your personality more like that of a dog, cat, or Koala?

11. Do you keep in touch with friends you made years ago?

12. You are checking out at a grocery store. In the express lane, there are more people than the regular lanes, but of course, their load is less than those in the regular lanes. Which lane do you choose (assuming you qualify for the express lane) and why?

Ahh, quirky is the new normal! I shall be using that in my everyday speech now thankyouverymuch. My link is up!

And I've never had a problem with any of your questions until this week. How in the world can I decide between my favorite food and my favorite music? Too much. Too too much.

I was just thinking, "I wonder how in the world she keeps coming up with such great questions?" Great idea to have ppl submit them. I would have run out on day one..

Girl, you are just flat out fun..:)

Amy said...

I love the Random Dozen even though I have the overwhelming need to link them all together with a summary so that makes them not so random...but that is just my own issue. I still love them.

I finally got the right day! Your meme is fun I'll see if I can think of more questions.

Sue said...

Another fun week with your Random Dozen! Thanks Linda. I love these so keep 'em coming. I know you've got tons more questions in you!


The Quiet One said...

What fun! I did one last week too, but I was a day late - story of my life! Anywho, thanks for doing these they are a great outlet.

Quirky IS the new normal :)

Love it :)

I'm laughing. So I was just cruising through reading answers when I came across ROSIDAH's answers. She had taken a quiz to determine what kind of animal she is & I thought it would be fun. Here's the answer:

You Are a Koala

You look cute, but there's nothing cute about the way you act. You're a total brat.
You like to be left alone, and if someone doesn't respect that, you are downright vicious.

You do your own thing... so much so that you tend to be pretty indifferent to those around you.
It is difficult for you to form emotional bonds with people - even if they want to form bonds with you.

Isn't that hilarious? Sadly, it's also kind of true. Hmmm - need to work on my socialization a little bit.

thanks for a fun and easy way to keep the blog going.

Joyce said...

I'm hoping you don't stop now. I've finally figured out my rhythm for getting them answered, posted and linked. Whew! I'm in today...enjoy your week!

Susanne said...

What?! You can't quit now? What will 50 plus some of us post on Wednesday?

Debbie @Like a Rose said...

Mine's finally up! Had to switch back to the desk top computer to add photos...

Perfect week for the technology question ;)

Angie said...

Will have to come up with some questions for you! That will be a fun new twist.

I, too, loved "quirky is the new normal." In my case, I've always been quirky, but what consolation that I can be considered normal too. Whew!

Thanks for the questions.
