Wednesday Hodgepodge

 

 

It’s Wednesday aka Hump Day, and as you know by now, that means it’s time for Joyce’s Hodgepodge!  Joyce slaves over her computer, toiling for hours coming up with totally random, totally fascinating questions for us … and then it’s our turn to toil for hours coming up with totally random, totally fascinating answers to her questions.  If you want to join in the fun, just click on the link above.  In the meantime, let’s get to this week’s questions:

 

1. What makes you stand to your feet and cheer?

If I’m at the game, I’ll usually stand up and cheer when my hockey team scores a goal or someone hits a home run for my baseball team.  Watching a game at home usually doesn’t seem to generate the same excitement level … although it did when the Cardinals won the World Series.   

 

2. What's your favorite patriotic song?

God Bless America … it gives me goose bumps.

 

3. Do you believe that opposites attract? If you have a significant other are you opposites?

Yes, I do believe that opposite attracts … one of the reasons I fell in love with DH is that he’s a good counterbalance to me.   

 

4. You're going to get a behind the scenes look someplace...where would you like that someplace to be?

Disney World.  How in the world can they pull ALL that off every day? 

 

5. How far would you have to travel to ride a carousel (merry-go-round)?

For myself?  Not very far.  I enjoy the carousel, but I’m just not much of a ride rider.  But if I’m with the Ts, that’s a whole ‘nother story!  I’m hoping to go with them to the zoo at some point this summer, and riding the carousel there is definitely on the list of things to do.

 

6. When was the last time you saw fireworks? What was the occasion? Do you enjoy fireworks?

The last time would have been last July 4th.  I enjoy watching fireworks, but I don’t enjoy hassling with the crowds for a good view. 

 

7. Of all the 'beauty products' you own, what item do you consider to be the most overpriced?

Not sure … I don’t use a whole lot of “beauty products” … I’m just a simple gal … a little lotion, a little powder, a little lip gloss … what you see is what you get.  Smile

 

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Ever have one of those days where you just feel out of sorts?  I had one yesterday.  I don’t like feeling like that … on the edge of crankiness for no apparent reason, unsettled, just not quite myself.  I’m praying that today will be a better day!

  1. I'm with you on the beauty products. I use a little (and I mean little) foundation and sometimes mascara and eye shadow. That's about it.

    Said a prayer for you that today will be a better day. Remember, "This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it." Sometimes that verse helps me. I hope it helps you today.

    Take care my friend.

  2. Hoping for a better day for you today! I wouldn't travel far either to ride a merry-go-round. Not much a ride person!

    Hope you have a good day.

  3. Oh! Disneyworld, good answer! It would be interesting to see how all of that's done!

    Hope today is a better day for you :)

  4. Hoping today will be better for you, too. At least the sun is finally out here. It's been so dreary lately.

  5. I think we all have days like that sometimes...I know I do. I blame the weather, haha....Hope you have a better one today! HUGS

  6. Hoping today is going better for you. I've been having too many of those "edge of crankiness" days - I'm guessing it's this blamed heat. Honeybunny has gotten where he recognizes the look on my face when I'm in one of those moods - and he stays clear ;-)

  8. Love sports! Will even jump up off my couch and cheer!

    Disney...you'd need a month of peeking behind the scenes to get a feel for that place. It would be a lot of fun!

    I agree about the fireworks, but I'm always glad I did it when it's all over. I just have to remind myself of that.


    I think I'm having one of those days today! (#8) Didn't sleep great. Spending too much time on the computer. Kids are gone, finished a big project yesterday, so I'm not going to feel too bad about having a slow day. :) Hope yours is better.

    Happy 4th!

  10. Hope today was a better day for you. I've been really down in the dumps the past couple of days.
    Fighting crowds isn't my favorite thing to do, either!

  12. I have days like that-I blame hormones. I'm sure they're responsible : )

    Disney is a great answer to the behind the scenes question!

  13. hoping you had a better day today!! I'm with you about fireworks, always fun to see but sometimes a hassle to get to see them. The past two years (but not this year since we live away from there) we went to the farm team baseball team that the town had for their game with fireworks afterwards. It was crowded but not as crowded like the year we went to see them on the beach where there were hundreds of thousands there (surprised we didn't lose the kids LOL).

    This year we are staying home and keeping an eye on Koda as he doesn't like fireworks and we aren't sure how many "stray" (illegal) ones will be going off in our neighborhood. (BTW he is doing fine :)

    I do think opposites do attract. I think we look for that in a relationship, something different than we are. Problem gets to be when we forget we liked them opposite stuff and we try to get them to be like us :)

I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
