Random Dozen


2nd Cup Of Coffee

1. On a scale of 1-10, how superstitious are you, honestly? Very much.

2. Julius Caesar is quoted as saying, “I came, I saw, I conquered.” Which circumstance or experience of yours does this saying best describe? I survived a terrible accident. There have been so many challenges in life since that time.

3. If I peeked in on your day like a mischievous little leprechaun, at what time would I most likely find you blogging? I write early in the evening, I read early in the morning.

4. Re springing forward for Daylight Saving Time, is there anything you’ve ever been really early or really late for? I was very early to the church for my second wedding! Ha! I could hardly wait! I was very late delivering my first baby! Three weeks!!!

5. What are you most looking forward to concerning Spring? Green grass and flowers!

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? Usually not, but heck, today I will.

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? Too many things to list.

8. Is March behaving more like a lion or a lamb where you live? Lamb. A wet lamb. (Although today it is sunny!)

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? Probably write more.

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? Pictures of my loved ones. Old and new!

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. It’s an antique pewter plate that was given to me by our dear friend, Otto before his death.

12. Just for a bit o’ fun, click here and then report your Irish name. Mine is Gemma O’Callaghan! I love it!

  1. Please note that from now on I am “Jade Fitzpatrick”, &@§%° I have to change my passport again !! I am not superstitious at all, I lived with a black cat for 20 years and don’t mind to go under a ladder 🙂

  2. I love green grass and flowers after a long winter too! It so soothing for the eyes.
    You were three weeks late for your baby and I was three weeks early. It was totally unexpected! 🙂
    Happy St. P – Day!

  3. My Irish name is Zoe Healy. Last week I walked through someones flower bed to avoid going under a ladder so I guess I’m superstitious. I don’t have any green clothes so won’t be wearing green today. Happy St. Patrick’s Day, anyway!

  4. How can you trust in God AND be superstitious??? I will be wearing green today and eating corned beef and cabbage for dinner! More cabbage… LESS corned beef! LOL! Life is “greening” up around here — naturally – not with MY help! I am loving it! And the birds are chirping away!
