Mindless Drivel

"Mindless habitual behavior is the enemy of innovation." ~Rosabeth Moss Kanter

"We dribble away our life, little by little, in small packages - we don't throw it away all at once. " ~Robert A. Cook

I can't get my lawnmower to work, so I am investing my life (well, at least this few minutes - I really should go try to start the mower again) in mindless activities. Thank you to my dear friend, Genny, who led me on this wild goose ... uh, image chase. Her instructions were to answer the question and then type that word or those words into Google images and post the first picture that comes up. I have to admit that I changed which pet name I would use because the first three names I tried gave me ... well, pictures that I shall not post on this family-friendly site. Also, it's a good thing I used our nickname rather than my first name, as that picture was not something I would willingly include either. I'm trying not to take it personally. =)

OK, so here goes.

1. Age on your next birthday? 40 (oh, my)

2. Favorite food? Thin-crust Veggie Pizza

3. Favorite color? blue

4. A place I would like to visit? Papua New Guinea

5. Where I live? Texas

6. Name of a past or present pet? Nutmeg

7. One of my favorite places? Switzerland

8. Favorite holiday? Christmas (well, whaddaya know? It's the same image Genny has!)

9. Bad habit? Eating (but hot dogs like these are not really a problem) :-)

10. Favorite animal? I typed, "I don't have one," ... because I don't.

11. Favorite cartoon from childhood? Bugs Bunny

12. Name? Peas

13. Favorite Extravagance? Bed & Breakfast

14. A phrase I overuse? "If you say so."

OK ... your turn! :-)


  1. Very fun. Glad to be of service in the "mindless dribble" of your day. Seems like I'm doing quite a bit of that these days.

  2. That was fun! I think I may send the idea to my mom who likes to do that kind of thing - to relax her mind.


  3. Fun. I had the same problem with the pet thing. As well as my name. Oy.

  4. OK ... my hubby got a chuckle out of my title for this post. I guess I don't score three points for it. Therefore, I am changing it from dribble to drivel. Whatever that is. :-)
