Irish Randomness

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

Not very, or not at all. I can't think of an example where I have to do something just because.

2. Julius Caesar is quoted as saying, "I came, I saw, I conquered." Which circumstance or experience of yours does this saying best describe?

My kitchen project.  We selected flooring, rugs, and yesterday I painted above the cabinets.  Now I need my sister-in-law to help me with window treatments.  I think I will wait until she is here on March 26 and get an expert opinion.

3. If I peeked in on your day like a mischievous little leprechaun, at what time would I most likely find you blogging?
Usually early morning.
4. Re springing forward for Daylight Saving Time, is there anything you've ever been really early or really late for?

I tried to think of either one, but came up with nothing.
5. What are you most looking forward to concerning Spring?

Warmer weather, green grass,  planting the garden,and mowing.

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?

Sure do.  I have on my green K-State t-shirt
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?

Backing a trailer.   I have tried, and am terrible at it.  Probably just needed to practice more, but no one had the patience to really live through that experience. 
8. Is March behaving more like a lion or a lamb where you live?

It really isn't a lion, but is still so cool I wouldn't call it a lamb.

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?

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?

I keep thinking it would be fun to have a pool, but then I would also want a pool boy.

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.

We have a beautiful sunset here from out back view almost every day, but I don't appreciate it every dayOf course, that would mean the sun was shining.  A rare commodity.
12. Just for a bit o' fun, click here ( and then report your Irish name. Mine is "Zoe O'Sullivan."
Mine was Kayleigh Murray.  Who knows how they get this stuff.  Then below it was the quote, "What butter or whiskey does not cure cannot be cured."  Now there is some Irish thinking.
