PostHeaderIcon Cara: Go ahead have a dozen or a few...what do you say?

A Random Dozen from "Lid"

1. Which Wizard of Oz character are you most like? Most definitely Dorothy and not just 'cause I dig her shoes...but because it has taken me a long time to realize that "if you are looking for your heart's desire you don't have to look further than your own backyard". My journey however did NOT included any type of munchkin.

2. When you're deciding what you're going to wear each morning, which item do you select first? Why? I usually reach for black. Not that I am in a black mood but I just like to wear black. I would wear it everyday if it wouldn't make people talk about me. If I ever have an interior decorating store or business when I grow up, I always picture myself and my "staff'" wearing black head to toe. (you have been warned before that sometimes inside my head is a little scary...)

3. What kind of animal do you think the world could live without? Slugs. Are they considered an animal? Well they need to go away. They are slimy, afraid of salt and always seem to mate on one of my back windows. Nasty! It's like slug porn...blech.

4. How many Christmas trees are in your home?Ok.....7. Yes 7. One 10ft fake one in the family room where we spend a lot of time so we need a tree in there. A real one in the living room that we make a day out of buying/cutting down with our friends every year, a small one in my kitchen with "kitchen" ornaments, one in each kids' room, one small one in the makeshift holiday party room where we end up dancing on New Years. I would put up more if I had them. Perhaps next year.....

5. Would you prefer to be emotionless if it meant you didn't have to feel a heartbreak?
No. I don't like to be sad of course but I wouldn't want to miss out on the joy.

6. Do you ever experience holiday let-down or depression? Yeah but not til February. I am done like "stick a fork in me I'm done" right after New Years...and in January it's all about order and cleaning and getting things back to order, which I like.

7. Do you like Michael Jackson's music? Sure. I grew up with it, it's the background music of my life you could say. Him, well not so much in the later years...may he rest in peace.

8. Why is it that we never judge people who have their teeth fixed for cosmetic reasons, but every other cosmetic procedure has a stigma? Hmm...well messed up teeth can really make a person look bad and are very noticeable. But too small boobs or a big nose is really a matter of preference I think.

9. Enjoy horseback riding? HA! Yes once a year, as of the past 3 years. I love horses, they are so smart and beautiful, if it's a warm Indian Summer kind of day and you're riding through the is good.

10. Shoes--practical or stylish? I wear practical 'cause that's my life. We are talking practical but stylish right? Not orthopedic or God forbid my HUSBAND'S boots like my friend wears (I'm gonna pay for that!) I would love to have some place to go where I could wear a pair of 3inch high Manolos though.

11. What was the name of your first pet? Feel free to post a pic. I am not sure if it was Harry the cat or Cindy the dog.

12. What percentage of your Christmas shopping is done? I would say about 50% (no stress remember!!!)

I think I would be most like Glinda, but I think it's because I like to sing and be overly dramatic.

Oh, and wear poofy, pink dresses while ordering around people who are shorter than me.

Thanks so much for stopping by for my SITS day!
