Random Dozen!

1. Ever had any run ins with the library police?

Well, both my parents ARE the librarian police LOL Not really any run ins per say...there was the one librarian when I was at uni that we all called Darth Vader...seriously, the woman could NOT sneak up on anyone..we could here her coming several rows back...

Then there was my close call from last week. My puppy chewed my copy of this book...

And I,-coward that I am - got my husband to return it for me. I still haven't heard anything back....

2. Do you have special organizational plans and a place for wrapping paper, gift bags etc, or do you just purchase whenever you need as you give gifts?

Nope, definitely a planner here! Years of living in the sticks have taught me to be never know when a kid is going to spring a party on you for that same afternoon!

#3 Have you ever been in (first -hand witness to) a natural disaster?

Apart from my toy :)

#4 What's your favourite Barry Manilow song?

Well, until today I wasn't aware that I had one LOL
I have to say 'Can't smile without you'

#5 What's the best costume you've ever worn?

Probably not the year I went to the school's Book Week parade as a Fairy Princess dressed in an old donated wedding dress.

Poor Mick nearly had a heart attack...we'd only been dating a few weeks LOL

It would have to be in primary school when I dressed up as Sadie the Cleaning Lady. I got a prize and everything!

Thanks Johhny! LOL

#6 What's your favourite breakfast food?
Yeah...I got it out of order here...sorry, but it is WAAAAAAAAAAY too much trouble to move pictures around with Blogger!

I love French Toast...

No, wait make it...eggs benedict...

No, definitely French toast. With maple syrup and strawberries...

#7 Which do you use more a dictionary or a thesaurus?

I love love love my thesaurus!

#8 Have you ever purchased anything from an infomercial?
No, but I totally want the Sham-WOW!

Have you heard the joke...there's no drought, someone just dropped a Sham-WOW ....

Oh, and my sis bought me Zumba too LOL

#9 Have you ever crawled through a window?
Errr, yes.
I was bridesmaid. I had alot to drink. I was standing on the front steps waiting for my dad to pick me up, when I got invited to a party, by a guy hanging out of a window, which I crawled through. I soon got a phone call from the front desk saying my dad was there to get me, so I left the party. The same way I got there.
My poor dad.

He has a classy daughter *blush*

#10 Do you believe in love at first sight?
Oh heck YES!

#11 How many pairs of jeans do you own?
Okay. I own ONE pair of jeans. I know, its bad.

#12 If someone were going to bake a cake to honor/represent you, what would it be?
(Think creatively, like Duff and Crew on 'Ace of Cakes')

Can I have this baker????

LOL. Maybe not ;)

I have never heard of 'Ace of Cakes' So, I am going with my fave...a good, rich, yummy chocolate cake...Mmmmmmm....

So that's mine! Let me know if you play along too, I'd love to come visit!

Mary said...

What a great, funny story about the window! You should catch "Ace of Cakes" on FoodNetwork...their cakes are amazing!

Mrs. E said...

Your poor Dad is right--what a good sport!! : ) And you soooo have to watch an Ace of Cakes- they make some amazing things.

Phrog said...

Didn`t you "survive" the newcastle earthquake?? I know I did. LOL

samurai said...

Yea, another blogger who likes to use a lot of pics... only mine are not as big. 8)

French Toast! Yum!
Love the Dino!
ShamWow is abosolutely the best thing since sliced bread... but that announcer reminds me of an evil Jim Carry.

Hi Kirsty-

I've enjoyed reading your responses to Random Dozen. It's a terrific meme. I've always liked a good meme and now I have started my own. We just started a new meme called "Wednesday Wickedness" and will post on Tuesday afternoons. You are welcome to do it on Tuesdays, if you do only one meme a day! We are up and posted now. Each week we pick a famous person and find 10 quotes. Then each question is based on the quotes! This week is George Clooney. Check us out at
