The easy road to rambling

The days are just packed... and in order to get something posted i am using a fellow blogger's "Random Dozen".

1. If you could compete in one Olympic event (not necessarily winter sports) what would it be? ~ I've always had a thing for Archery.  I've never been all that good at it per se, but i love sport of it.  Robin Hood was one of my all time favorite movies as a kid, and i am looking forward to the "modern" vision of it coming out later this year with Russell Crow.  I hear the BBC series is very good.  I have a friend who owns it and has offered to lend it to me... i really need to take them up on that offer.

2. Do remember a specific Olympic moment from the past? ~ For me the one i remember the most is when America won the gold for Hockey back in the early '80's against the Russians.  Lame i know, but i've never really been a avid viewer of the Olympics. 8(

3. Have you ever known anyone who competed in the Olympics? ~ The closest i have ever come is the coach of one of my son's athletic teams was the brother of an Olympian.  I never did meet her though.

4. If everyday activities were Olympic-worthy, which activity would you have a gold medal in? ~ Phuleeze... i am not so good in any one thing so as to think i would even be in the same league as the "best of the best".  God's grace has allowed me to have such a good career, but it is truly not of my own ability or doing.

5. Do you know anything about your ethnic heritage? ~ Yes... i know i am a typical 13th generation American.  I am a mutt!  8)  Some English, French, Spanish or perhaps Native American (there is an empty line for a mother on a birth certificate), etc.

6. Do you enjoy sleeping late? ~ Not really.  I can sleep in some, but once i get to a certain point it, it actually becomes a little uncomfortable.  Unless i am sick... then i sleep pretty much 24x7 until i feel better.

7. Have you ever performed CPR on anyone? Do you know how? ~ Never have, although i have held a certification on two separate occasions.  I still remember the smell and taste of the antiseptic on the rescis-Anne.

8. Name one country you'd like to visit and explain why. ~ I have two actually.  I would love to visit both Ireland and Australia.  Both of these countries spark my imagination greatly.

9. Have you ever fixed up a couple romantically? ~ Nope, and i hesitate to even consider getting in the middle of such a thing.

10. What is the last book you read? ~ Finished?  Hmm... i don't remember.  They are sort of blurring all together... and i in the middle of three books currently.  Stonewall Jackson: The Man, the Soldier, the Legend (an really good book IMO), Proclaiming a Cross-Centered Theology (i have just barely started this one), and to scratch my sci-fi fix - Cadian Blood.

11. Do you enjoy sleeping late? NO, YOU write the question! How's that for random?? Me??? Um... pass...

12. What is your favorite meal at your favorite restaurant? ~ Currently it is the Chicken Fajita Burrito at my favorite local Mexican Restaurant.  My mouth is watering just thinking about it right now.

2. Not lame. Remember, that was termed "The greatest Sports Moment of the 20th Century"!

5. We're all mutts really.

6. Keep practicing! It feels SO good...that is until you wake up and are sore from sleeping too long ALL feel like you have wasted too much of the day!

7. YUCK! That brought back memories of that wonderful taste of alcohol.

9. Smart man!

11. Come on! You excel in random!!

Have a great day!

Archery appeals to me because I have good aim and 40 year old women still compete in the Olympics for that sport. :)

A couple of people have said chicken fajitas burrito. I'm going to have to try one someday. soon.
