Happy New Year

Altoids peppermint gum and black coffee don't really taste good together.

Today is Chinese New Year, so it's Chinese food for supper this evening. That was easy.

I was looking at my own Facebook page a little more closely than usual today and I saw this list of questions from a third-party application. I didn't play along, but the premise is that you have to have so many "coins" in order to find out who answered the questions. Here are some of the questions that intrigued me.

Do you think Caron can throw a football with a spiral? Yes
This person is seriously confused or has never met me.

Do you think Caron has ever punched someone? Yes
Wow, thank you for thinking I'm not a delicate flower. I would love to be super intimidating in a physical presence sort of way for when I join the CIA and carry a weapon or go to sniper school. I have never actually hit anyone in anger. The one time I can think of in my life when most people thought I should have slapped someone, it didn't even occur to me because I was so shocked by her behavior.

Do you think Caron prefers Coke to Pepsi? No
This person knows me? Hmmmmmm. I despise Pepsi and haven't had one in more than 20 years.

Do you think Caron can do 20 pushups? Yes
I adore you, whoever you are. Air kisses for you.

Do you think Caron speeds when driving? Yes
Oh sure, who doesn't?

Do you think Caron is hyper? Yes
This must be someone who knew me in high school because I am now Zen-like in my own calm and serene freaking way.

Do you think Caron swears like a sailor? No
Mom, is that you? Because, well you know, little pitchers have big ears.

Do you think Caron would turn you in to the FBI if they asked? No
Don't go getting all cocky and everything. I might. I am very loyal, but if you've messed me around one time too many, I most certainly will. I may even give them a call just to ruin your day.

Would you trust Caron with your life? Yes
Ability, people! I can do CPR, but that's just about the whole list. If your life depended on me running 26 miles to get help, you are in really big trouble, my friend.

Do you think Caron thinks wine in a box is classy? No
So now you think imma snob? It may not be classy, but it is practical and I am practical all the way, all day. It keeps the wine fresh, people.

Do you think Caron owns a nice car? Yes
Except that it's going to kill me. OK, that's not funny. But my car has issues: 'epic fail' is written all over it now.

Do you think Caron has ever taken money for a bribe? No
No, I haven't but how much are we talking? Who's offering and what's the bribe? Details, please.

Do you think Caron is a tree hugger? Yes
I confuse people like that. I am, yet I'm not. I'm a conundrum.

I enjoyed reading your answers. I've noticed those things on facebook but have never gone to see how people answered about me.

To answer your question about whether my early flowers survive the cold weather, they don't when they open up to full blooms. That's a problem in March too. It's ok when the flowers are budding as some always do that in the winter in central NC where I live but we can have hard frost well into April so it's hit and miss with the early bloomers and I know this year some of the camellias and lenten rose won't do well because they got ahead of themself.

Thanks, Rose. Thanks for your answer, Carver. I'm glad you enjoyed this. I made a 15 y.o. laugh this morning, so I'm clearly on a roll!

I liked your answers. I have a Facebook account but I have never been active on it. I use MySpace more. They come up with some strange questions there but I ignore them.

Howard, so do I. I had no idea this particular list was even there.

ok ok... I have to make a few corrections Caron:
Do you think Caron is hyper? Yes
This must be someone who knew me in high school because I am now Zen-like in my own calm and serene freaking way. - you Zen like? I would not say one or the other. I think in general you are pretty well balanced, BUT.. there are days you can be towards the hyper side!

Do you think Caron swears like a sailor? No
Mom, is that you? Because, well you know, little pitchers have big ears. - Not like a sailor... but you swear! haha

Would you trust Caron with your life? Yes
Ability, people! I can do CPR, but that's just about the whole list. If your life depended on me running 26 miles to get help, you are in really big trouble, my friend. - Actually even if it were 100 miles you would Caron.

Do you think Caron is a tree hugger? Yes
I confuse people like that. I am, yet I'm not. I'm a conundrum. - You are not only a tree hugger but much more liberal in your thoughts than you will ever admit, my dear friend!

Sofia, I am not liberal and you just said that to get a rise out of me. And you got it, too! :*
