Happy St. Patrick's Day--Random Dozen Style

It's Random Dozen Day over at 2nd Cup of Coffee--click that link to join in the fun!

1. On a scale of 1-10, how superstitious are you, honestly?
I'm gonna say about an 8.  I knock wood, try hard not to walk under ladders, etc.

2. Julius Caesar is quoted as saying, "I came, I saw, I conquered." Which circumstance or experience of yours does this saying best describe?
Don't know how much conquering was involved, but I survived living with four teenagers in the house at one time!

3. If I peeked in on your day like a mischievous little leprechaun, at what time would I most likely find you blogging?
Early morning--like 6:30 or so

4. Re springing forward for Daylight Saving Time, is there anything you've ever been really early or really late for?
Well, my mother's due date when she was pregnant with me was late April--my birthday is May 6.

5. What are you most looking forward to concerning Spring?
Getting my hands dirty--love working in the yard

6. Shamrocks are the national flower of Ireland and are picked on St. Patrick's Day and worn on the lapel or shoulder. Do you wear green on St. Patty's Day?
Of course!

7. One of Caesar's assassins, Casca, said, "But, for my own part, it was Greek to me," which of course means he didn't understand something. Probably his own lines in the play. Anyway, what is something that is "Greek to you," something incomprehensible or indecipherable?
Short and simple answer: math in just about any form--especially the kind that involves numbers AND letters--that's like cats and dogs mating--just goes against nature

8. Is March behaving more like a lion or a lamb where you live?
A passive lion or maybe a ticked off lamb--not too bad, but not good either

9. "An extra yawn one morning in the springtime, an extra snooze one night in the autumn is all that we ask in return for dazzling gifts. We borrow an hour one night in April; we pay it back with golden interest five months later." -Winston Churchill. If you had one extra hour per day every day, what would you do with it?
"To sleep, perchance to dream....."

10. Legend says that every Leprechaun has a pot of gold hidden deep in the Irish countryside. Aside from real gold or money, what material item would be in your dream pot of gold?
My bag of makeup.  I'm like Tammy Fay Baker--it won't be heaven if I can't wear makeup.

11. "The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God just before you." Robert Louis Stevenson. Look around you right now and tell us about something essential or beautiful very near you that you take for granted every day.
Electricity. Not even taking into consideration the entertainment factor, think how much easier we have it over our grandmothers.  Washers, dryers, dishwashers, hot water heaters, etc.

12. Just for a bit o' fun, click here ( and then report your Irish name. 
Aislin O'Byrne--I like it!  Now if I could only pronounce it!
