Post Holiday Hodge Podge

It's time for a little Hodge Podgin' with Joyce and THANK GOODNESS because I need some Hodge Podge to bring up the mood around here! Click the button and get in on some of this!

1. What is ONE thing or area in your home or life you hope to report is completely organized when 2013 draws to a close?  Do you  have a plan to make it happen? The attic. And the closet in the office. A plan? Ha! Surely you jest! Ok, how's this- I plan to get it done. :)

2. What's the worst uniform you've ever had to wear for a job? The one I had to wear when I got my first job. I was in food service the first year Carowinds opened. That outfit was...well...oh hell, it sucked! I couldn't find a picture of it BUT, see that couple singing in the middle down there? Well, it was sort of like her costume only shorter and it stuck out like we were in a perpetual spin.

3. What was your last kitchen 'mishap'?  This question comes to you courtesy of Betty who blogs over at A Glimpse Into Midlife...everyone go say hi to Betty! I burned some gravy I was making and nearly ruined my pan. That'll teach me to make gravy...something I love but have no business eating.

4. How do you protect yourself from other people's negativity? If it's outside the house it's easy- I run away. Speedy quick! Inside the house? It's not so easy to protect oneself when it's coming at you from right where you live. I tend to use my headset and iPod frequently.

5. Who in your family do you most resemble (physically)? If you have children, who do people say they favor? Do you agree? It varies- some days I favor my mother more and other days, my dad. The lovelies all favor different sides- Breezy favors my mother's side though she looks a lot like my hubby when he was young; Deanie favors my dad's side; Birdie splits between my mother's side and my dad's side with a bit of my husband's dad's side; and DoodleBug favors my husband's dad's side and my dad's side.

6. January 8th is National Bubble Bath Day...will you be celebrating? Nope. No time- have to finish my Hodge Podge questions!

7.  Some of the 'world's best winter festivals' are - Mardi Gras (New Orleans), Quebec Winter Festival (Canada), Sundance Film Festival (Park City, Utah),  Rio Carnivale (Brazil), Sapporo Snow Festival (Japan), Venice Carnivale (Italy) and the Harbin Ice Festival (Northern China).  Of those listed (and if cost were not a factor) which would you most like to attend and why? Mardi Gras! I've never been but I've always been a bit curious--especially about getting some of those beads they hand out. LOL

8.  Insert your own random thought here.It's been a long week already. But only TWO MORE DAYS to the weekend! And the playoffs are on so WOOHOO! It'll be a football weekend! That's right- I love it even though my team still can't even spell play-offs or Super Bowl. And there's March Madness to look forward to. And then it's sit around and wait for preseason to start again. Probably need to get something to revolve my life around besides football and March Madness. Sheesh. 


  1. I'm just sitting down now, at midnight, having spent some more time trying to reoganise this house, lol!
    I'd love Mardi Gras too, maybe we should both go there and finally we'd get to meet!!

  2. Mimi- LET'S DO IT! That would be marvelous!

  3. i love playoffs in football, and this year MY team's in them...yippee!
    and i love some march madness too!

  4. Funny how that works...our looks must change from day to day LOL

    I would hope to have my desk organized. The horizontal storage is getting quite vertical.

    I did finally figure out the comment thing but only after embarrassing myself - not for the first time! And yes, there was a lot of spam for a long time in the fall. Then, one day, it was all gone again - just like the old days. I'm happy, happy. Yes, hate that spam.

  5. I think the playoffs are the best part of the NFL season. The Superbowl is sometimes a let down, more exciting to see who will get there. Iam not a fan of pro Basketball, but the college March Madness is fun to watch.

  6. Enjoy the playoffs, Pam. I'll be watching almost anything else. lol Have a great weekend!!! And I'm surprised to hear that you didn't spend the day in the tub on Bubble Bath Day. ;-) Does anyone really have time to spend in the tub???

  7. skoots- Who's your team? I need one to pull for since mine didn't make it. LOL Good Luck!

    Stephanie- I have the same problem with my desk. And it's not getting any better so far. Lack of motivation and all that. The spam is still coming my way- hope it will stop soon.

    Joyce- Pro basketball? What's that? LOL I never watch it but I do love college basketball. Not as much as football (college and NFL) but it fills the time nicely> :)

    Judy- If anyone has time to spend in the tub, I sure don't know them. I'll enjoy the playoffs and you enjoy Downton Abbey. LOL


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
