Today's Random Dozen!

#1 What is one really fast, know-by-heart, 'go-to' meal to fix in a pinch?

In the interests of full disclosure, ALL of my meals are really, fast, know-by-heart meals. I don't cook using recipes, and I really don't enjoy cooking....

My fave really quick, easy to make in any amounts is spaghetti bolognese. So quick, can use up slightly saggy veges, and fills everyone up!

#2 What is one item you won't leave home without? (Purse and license don't count)

My sunnies.
I wear them everywhere, especially if I haven't had time to put on the trusty mascara ;)

#3 What is one place you never tire of visiting?

*sigh* Ballina.
Its my favourite place in the whole world. Up until last month, most of my favourite people lived there, but now, some of my favourite people from this bunch have moved.
But I still wanna go to Ballina!

#4 Share one factoid of your family's history.

I am woefully ignorant about my family's history. I don't think I even know my Grandmother's maiden names *blush*
But I do know that often, the women in my mother's family tend to end up with dementia. Not a particularly nice thing to be looking forward to.
I know that my great-grandmother used to try and *escape* by stealing the family car, so my great-grandfather had to hide the car keys on her. I believe they used to get hidden in a boot.
Apparently she would cackle triumphantly whenever she managed to unearth them *smile*

Or at least that's how I think I remember the story (Oh man...it's not happening already is it??)
#5 Complete this sentence: "Once upon a time I...."

Errrr, kissed a few toads, but eventually found my prince :)

#6 if you could win a one year's supply of anything what would it be?

I want a years supply of Thickers!
Failing that, having my bills paid for a year would be nice too!
#7 one quirky thing you may not know about me is...

errrr, I haven't worn a bikini since 1978???
And for this, the world is extremely grateful :)

#8 You have one dollar in your pocket. What will you buy?

Some places out here, you can still get a can of soft drink for $1. I still crave the caffeine even though I have mostly given up the Coke Zero...so I'll have a can of Coke Zero please!

#9 One thing that always makes me laugh is....

Lamebook is hilarious.
Really, you should visit!

#10 What is one thing you could do today to help yourself reach a personal goal?

I could go for a walk.
I SHOULD go for a walk.
But I reeeeeally don't wanna....

#11 What is one thing you could do today to bless someone else?

I don't have a lot with which to bless someone. I am forever thinking of things I *could* do if I had the money.
However, I like making cards. And, its always nice to get *real* mail, so I could (and possibly WILL) send out some cards today. Just to let some people know I was thinking of them :)

#12 What is one thing you're looking forward to soon?

I wait all day for him to come home.
I miss him when he is at work. Seeing him, makes my day better :)

I hadn't heard of lamebook, but it's all ready made me laugh haha. Did you go for your walk? You cannot get $1.00 soft drink here that I know of but I don't drink soft drinks so maybe I just don't know haha.

Great answers. I love your number 5 and 12!

that picture is adorable!

Your answer to #12 was sweet.

And I'd like to go to Ballina too. I hope to at least get to Australia one of these days. One of my good friends from the UK is moving back to Melbourne..she also has a beach house somewhere so we're hoping to visit sometime in the future.
