Random, Randomness - Sunday Stealing

1.  How did you choose your baby's or pet's names?
When we were selecting a name for our corgi, we wanted to pick a Welsh one with some meaning. One of the meanings of Gwendolyn is white circle. Our Gwennie had a white ring around her neck. 
2.  Have you ever been fishing? 
Yes, when we were young, my dad took us camping in northern California, so he could go trout fishing.  When I was old enough, he got me a rod and taught me to fish.
3.  Have you ever had your national flag painted on your face? 
No, I have never had my face painted.
4.  What was the last social faux pas you made? 
I have a hard time remembering names any more.  I hate to admit I can't remember so I try not to introduce people.
5.  What makes you nostalgic? 
Usually strong smells like cinnamon and pumpkin spice. Also golden oldies from my youth. Found this funny video!

6.  What's the scariest thing you've ever done?
Have children...I almost died with the first one and was not going to do it again...but I did and everything was fine.
7.  What fairy tale character would you most associate with? 
Old Mother Hubbard, maybe?
8.  How much do you tend to swear in public? 
Very little to not at all.
9.  If you ruled your own country, who would you get to write your national anthem? - Eric Clapton was the first name that came to mind.
10.  Who is the most intelligent person you know? 
Probably my son in law....but that doesn't mean he is always smart or right.
11. What's the worst piece of advice anyone has ever given you? Probably some one gave me bad directions.  I can't think of anything else.

12. If you had to describe yourself as a flavor, what would it be? Vanilla Bean
13. If you had to describe yourself as a car, what would it be? A Volkswagen
14. If you had to describe yourself as an animal, what would it be? A koala bear
15. Do you think laughing at someone else's misfortune is wrong? 
Yes, most of the time. sometimes it is therapeutic if you think they deserved the bad luck. I could never laugh at someone directly for any reason.
16. If a loved one was to serenade you, what song would you most like them to sing? I can't stop loving you.
17. Would you ever let your parents pick out a partner for you?
No, but I would have listened to them if they had problems with my choice.....but they didn't.  
18.  Have you ever tried spam? (the meat product) Yuck...very salty.



  1. Love the video! And Gwennie is adorable.

  2. You've NEVER had your face painted?! Phobia? Gwendolyn was BEAUTIFUL. ♥

  3. I totally stink at names and faces. Gets me into trouble all the time.

  4. I have the hardest time remembering names too! Wish I would have thought of that answer because I also hate to try and introduce people because I either can't remember their name or I'm afraid of saying the wrong name. Old Mother Hubbard is another good answer--my cupboards are always bare.

  5. I'm at the age when names are forgotten... it's scary. I thought 12, 13 and 14 were odd questions, I would never be able to answer them.

  6. We names our beloved dog Guinness - (a) he was black with white froth around his neck (b) he was born in a pub - what else would be call him? LOL Sadly he is no longer with us.

  7. What a beautiful pup. Love your answers. My dad LOVES spam. I'm with you. Yuck!

  8. A koala? I think that is adorable. And cuddly!
