Plinko Random Dozen

Definition of plink: "Plinking refers to informal target shooting done at non-traditional targets such as tin cans, glass bottles, and balloons filled with water." Plinko is also a carnival game we play at Oneighty, but pot-luck shots fits this meme better, I think.

So here are your random plinko questions lined up in a row just like tin cans:

1. How old is the oldest pair of shoes in your closet?

If sandals count, I have a pair from about grade 9 or 10 so about 9 years old. They are a pair of Teva's though so they will last forever :)
If sandals don't count, then I have no idea.

2. Did you buy Girl Scout cookies this year? If so, what variety?

No. I did eat some Girl Guide cookies though. I think my roommate bought them. They were the chocolate mint ones.

3. Do you know how to ballroom dance? If not, would you like to?

I know how to waltz. My dad taught me when I as little. I would LOVE to actually learn more though. I used to ice dance. That was fun!

4. Were you a responsible child/teenager?

I was extremely responsible! I owe that to my parents putting me in lots of extra-curriculars.

5. How many of this year's Oscar-nominated movies did you see?

I saw 4 of the 10 Best Picture nominations. Up, Up in the Air, Avatar and The Blind Side.

6. If you're going to have a medical procedure done, such as having blood drawn, is it easier for you to watch someone else having the procedure done or have it done yourself?

I definitely do better with having it done to myself! I don't like blood or needles, but when I injure myself or need blood drawn I'm somewhat okay.

7. What is your favorite day of the week and why?

Day 4! I am on a 3 on 3 off shift week. So when it's day 4 I am happy, because I get to go home!

8. Do you miss anyone right now?


9. Do hospitals make you queasy?

No. I hate the smell though.

10. At which store would you like to max-out your credit card. Not that you ever would, you responsible person, you.

Mountain Equipment Co-op. I want my own camping stuff this year.

11. Are you true to the brand names of products/items?

For some things yes, like laundry detergent (I'm allergic to most) and beauty supplies (again because of sensitive skin/allergies) but for food and other cleaning supplies I'm pretty good with whatever is the best deal. Oh but I don't cheap out on toilet paper. That has to be the good stuff!

12. Which is more difficult: looking into someone’s eyes when you are telling someone how you feel, or looking into someone’s eyes when he/she is telling you how he/she feels?

I think I have a harder time when I am telling them how I feel. I am pretty insecure/shy when it comes to letting myself open up to others. When people tell me how they feel about me I find it pretty awkward though.


  1. It is never, ever a good idea to cheap out on TP haha!

  2. I love that your dad taught you to waltz!

  3. TP is far too important to cheap out on!

    And yeah, some of my absolute favourite moments growing up were waltzing with my dad in my grandmother's living room while she played the music and my dad and her sang together.

  4. Hehe this is fun, I might have to do that. :) I have shoes from the 9th grade too still... that was 16 years ago... oh good grief I feel old now.

  5. Hi Jo! Thanks for stopping by! And the Random Dozen is fun and it's an easy(most weeks) post!
