Dirty Dozen

1. On a scale of 1-10, how superstitious are you, honestly?

At least an 8. Bad vibes, signs or just a feeling can make me change my whole course of direction.

2. Julius Caesar is quoted as saying, "I came, I saw, I conquered." Which circumstance or experience of yours does this saying best describe?

My life! I guess things started out kinda rough and that makes me proud of who and what I am as well as how far I have come.

3. If I peeked in on your day like a mischievous little leprechaun, at what time would I most likely find you blogging?


4. Re springing forward for Daylight Saving Time, is there anything you've ever been really early or really late for?

I am usually no more than 5 minutes early or 10 minutes late, usually.

5. What are you most looking forward to concerning spring?

Getting out in nature to walk and feel the sun.

6. Shamrocks are the national flower of Ireland and are picked on St. Patrick's Day and worn on the lapel or shoulder. Do you wear green on St. Patty's Day?

Absolutely. It is a requirement.

7. One of Caesar's assassins, Casca, said, "But, for my own part, it was Greek to me," which of course means he didn't understand something. Probably his own lines in the play. Anyway, what is something that is "Greek to you," something incomprehensible or indecipherable?

Bible freaks. I just don’t get blind faith and living by someone else’s principles. How can people see so many paths of belief and think that theirs is the only pure one? I don't get it at all!

8. Is March behaving more like a lion or a lamb where you live?

March is a lion. I have gotten 2 jobs in the past few weeks. I stressed myself to the hilt about quitting the first one. I start my new job Monday. I can’t wait for things to calm down.

9. "An extra yawn one morning in the springtime, an extra snooze one night in the autumn is all that we ask in return for dazzling gifts. We borrow an hour one night in April; we pay it back with golden interest five months later." -Winston Churchill. If you had one extra hour per day every day, what would you do with it?

Rest, relax, read

10. Legend says that every Leprechaun has a pot of gold hidden deep in the Irish countryside. Aside from real gold or money, what material item would be in your dream pot of gold?

Good green smoke, I guess:-)

11. "The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God just before you." Robert Louis Stevenson. Look around you right now and tell us about something essential or beautiful very near you that you take for granted every day.

My dog. His love and companionship are essential to my life. I always say I am going to walk him more and get him more treats but I know my love and affection is what he needs because that is what I need from him. He has been the only one to stick with me through it all.

12. Just for a bit o' fun, click here ( and then report your Irish name.
