ASAP typically stands for 'as soon as possible'. What else could it stand for in your life right now?
I’ve really got nothing on this one. How about supper thoughts…asparagus soufflé and potatoes? Or apple strudel and pecans? Or “all shrimp and pie”? Or even a sweet apple pancake?
Are you the last person to speak up in a group or the first to have an idea? Why do you suppose that is? Is it a good thing or no?
I may be the first to come up with an idea, but I would likely be the last to speak up. Really, it depends on who the group consists of. It is because I am very shy and, after a lifetime of being told how stupid I am, I’d rather not open my mouth and prove it, no matter how great my idea may be or what good it may do.
Is it a good thing or not? I don't know. I do know it is their loss.
What do you remember best about being 12?
I started 7th grade at age 12 in the fall of 1977. It was my first, and only, year in a private school. That was the year that I knew how much my daddy really loved me. He couldn’t afford private school, but the public school district that we were in would have had me going to the most dangerous junior high school in the district. After hearing what happened to a girl there, my daddy moved heaven and earth, worked double shifts, wore himself to a frazzle, to get me in and keep me in that private school until he could move us to another school district.
January 18th is National Winnie the Pooh Day. Which character do you relate to the most, and why? If you're stumped go here for inspiration.
I relate the most to Eeyore. It always seems that there is a cloud following me around, always a bit of rain on my parade. Some days more than others, but it is still always there.
BUT, the site that Joyce linked to thinks otherwise:

What's an app you use that helps simplify or make life easier for you in some way?
The camera app in my phone is a big help sometimes. My memory is horrible these days and shows no signs of improving. If there is something that I need to remember, like what level of the parking garage we parked on, I just take a picture of the sign nearest our car. Then, when we need to find the car again, we have the picture to tell us where it is.
San Francisco (CA), San Diego (CA), San Juan (PR) San Antonio (TX) Sanibel (FL)...you have an all expenses paid long weekend to one of these destinations. Which one do you choose and why?
Once Davey gets back stateside, I would probably pic San Diego because I think that is the closest of the choices to where he is supposed to be stationed next and maybe we would get to visit with him.
Otherwise, I don’t know. I don’t like big cities at all. San Francisco has all of that great architecture and history. San Antonio is beautiful and loaded with history. I don’t have any desire to go to Puerto Rico and Sanibel is too beachy for me.
Share with us a song that makes you feel nostalgic? For what?
“Oh what a lady, what a night”…This song is nostalgic for me because David adapted it for our oldest daughter when she was born. We called her “Laynie”, so it was “late December back in ’90, what a very special time for me….what a Laynie, what a night”. It makes me remember the look of total awe that was in his eyes beholding his daughter for the first time.

Here is the original song:
Insert your own random thought here.
Okay, this one is hot off the presses, so to speak.
My life’s clock is ticking faster.
There are things that I must master.
Appointments I must keep.
And you want me to sleep.
There won’t be time for this later.
