Random Dozen: Easter Version

1. How do you feel about the marshmallow Easter Peeps?
Ew. So yeah...not a fan. Also not a fan of the creme filled eggs. Caramel for me please!

2. Chickens are notoriously nervous creatures. When you are nervous, what is the best way to calm down?
Being myself in front of a crowd. When I'm given a character it's easy, but when it's me I'm so nervous! I have a pre-show ritual that I do did when I was doing theatre. Breathing and praying is the shortened version.

3. People say, "April showers bring May flowers." Do you enjoy Spring rains?
I love the rain…sometimes. I love the first rain after it's been dry and yucky. The smell, especially after the first neighbour mows their lawn, is awesome!

4. When I was randomly flipping through TV channels this week, I saw a show in which tattoo parlor employees received tattoos of a co-worker's face on their bodies. I can't imagine having a portrait of a colleague tattooed on me. But if someone forced you to receive a portrait tattoo (face only) of anyone, who would it be? Why?
If this is in the future, my child's face. If it is now, umm…Taylor Lautner Jen Miller my kitty. He's adorable and I miss him.

5. Would you rather have a tattoo (any kind) or a nose ring?
Well I have had both. Still have the tattoo, but had to take out the nose ring. I would love to have the nose ring back, and am planning another tattoo. Piercings and tattoos are addicting; it's true.

6. Do you have any special plans for Easter?
I will be working, so I will be hiding easter eggs and making special easter baskets for my "kids".

7. Cadbury Eggs or Reese Eggs?
Cadbury for me. Reese for my roommate.

8. What was the last thing/person you took a picture of?
A rosebush that was just starting to bud.

9. What book are you reading now, or what was the last one?
I am currently reading Grow Great Grub by Gayla Trail (YouGrowGirl) It's awesome and I can't wait to go home and start some seeds!

10. What do you think is the most difficult task when it comes to Spring cleaning?
EVERYTHING! I hate organizing and cleaning! I like having things clean, just not the actual cleaning it myself part. Probably just the starting. Yep starting spring cleaning is the hardest. Or maybe the finishing….since technically we started but haven't finished yet.

11. How many pairs of flip-flops do you own?
Too many.

12. Which color makes you happiest?
Blue. Either a rich sky blue, or a slightly tealy sky blue. Also yellow.

And there's another Random Dozen! Come back for the month of April as I attempt blogging everyday! This month's theme is BIG!


  1. Starting is definitely the hardest part of Spring Cleaning for me too - and continuing, and finishing :P The actual work is fine, it's just getting the motivation to start!

  2. I totally agree with you on #10! I think the best part is finishing. Because you're almost done! Hope you have a great Easter!

  3. Wow - I'm building up my reading list today! Sounds like a good book if it's that inspirational for you!

    Happy Easter!
