Anyone for a little bit of random?

Linda at Second Cup of Coffee is hosting a meme today and its theme is 'random'. If you read my blog you know I can do random and in fact I like to think I excel at random so I thought I'd give it a go....if you'd like to participate just answer the questions in a comment below or on your own blog.

1. When you go to Wowmart, what one thing do you get every single time, besides a funky-wheeled squeaking cart full of frustration?
I don't spend alot of time in Wowmart (please don't hate me) Except of course in the past two months I may have been everysingleday thanks to moving house. When I do go...strawberry twizzlers baby

2. What is something that people are currently "into" that you just don't get or appreciate?
twitter....really I am just not getting it people...'nuff said. Oh see I can be succinct. Maybe I should be on twitter.

3. What is something that really hoists your sail that other people might feel "ho-hum" about?
blogging : )

4. Favorite song to sing in the shower or car?
this is too hard and I've strained my brain trying to limit my answer to one...How Great Thou Art. There. I picked just one.
5. A really great salad must have this ingredient:
uh, lettuce?

6. Advice in a nutshell to new bloggers (one or two sentences):
write with your own voice, don't try to be someone you're not

7. What was the alternate name that your parents almost named you? Do you wish they had chosen it instead of the one they gave you?
Nathaniel . Obviously that would have been the boy name. And obviously I'm a girl.

8. What in your life are you waiting for?
at the moment a little clarity about what to do next

9. You get a package in the mail. What is it, and who is it from?
chocolate. And really it wouldn't matter who it was from

10. Today--what song represents you?
Blessed (Martina McBride)

11. What is one thing that blogging has taught you about yourself?
I love to write. I have alot of opinions. I talk too much. Actually that last one I may have already known.

12. How are you going to (or how did you) choose the clothes you're wearing today? What do they say about you in general or specifically how you're feeling today?
Well, going walking now so will wear my walking clothes. Then, hmm...probably jeans and a top (its cool outside) and I don't know that this says anything about me or how I'm feeling other than that I do love a great pair of jeans. And a great pair of shoes but that would be a whole 'nother post.


  1. Joyce! Great answers! Twitter seems to be the dominant head scratching item of the moment. I feel the same way. #6 I wholeheartedly agree on. And lastly, your walking clothes say that you are taking care of yourself and prefer to do so outdoors rather than on a treadmill?

  2. Oh man, I really want some twizzlers now...

    And Twitter? Sigh...yeah, I got sucked into that. It's like blogging on speed and hurts my head, but I can take it in small doses.

    Great answers!

  3. Your answer to #8 should have been MY answer!

  4. Oh my goodness I needed your advice! Why don't you just move to Dallas so you can help me with all my children's - their lisps and their vocabularies!
    Love your answers!

  5. Joyce,

    I love this post! I learned so much about you just from reading your answers! I too, am not about to sign up for Twitter, Facebook or MySpace. For now it's just the blogging community and that suits me just fine! Chocolate, oh yeah, bring that one. Always need to make sure it exists in some form in our home.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  6. Joyce, I love your answers and like you ...I don't need anything else to steal my time so why "twitter "Or facebook for that matter.

  7. Mmmmm, people can send me chocolate in the mail anytime!

    I don't get Twittering either. I'm so uncool. LOL.

  8. I haven't even tried to Twitter yet. It is all I can do to keep up with email, blog and do Facebook. I LOVE chocolate too. Any kind!!!
    I like to talk too, in case you haven't figured that out by now. Hope Tim had a great birthday! Love & blessings from NC!

  9. I like this meme, Joyce. I might try it today if I get the chance. I like a nice comfy pair of jeans, too.

    I tried Twitter for like 2 minutes and I just don't get what all the craze is about either. It's just not workin' for me. I'm glad I get to blog, let alone Twitter. Now I realize twittering is quicker, but blogging is absolutely, without a doubt, more fun.

  10. This was fun! I did mine on my own blog. Come see!

  11. I saw on our friend Lisa's blog that your daughter had filmed a commercial for Furman. I will have to watch and see if it is on our television here in NC, as you said it would be shown in the Carolinas. I hope you will get to see some of the games!! Have a wonderful holiday weekend. Love & blessings from NC!

  12. I do not hate you for not spending much time at Walmart. I only go when forced. But when I do? Ink Pens. They are my weakness..:))

  13. Hi, not sure how I found your blog but I enjoy reading.

    First time commenting because I was surprised that I had so many of the same answers to this quiz: #1 (I only go for dog food), 2,3,6,7 (I was suppose to be a boy- Danny Ray, 8 (yeah, what the heck is my purpose in life now?), and 9.

    For some strange reason I like taking quizzes!
