Wednesday's Hodgepodge

Visit Joyce and join the fun!

1. It's National Bike you own a bicycle? When did you last ride a bike? 

Technically I think I do have a bicycle in the garage.  My sister gave it to me years ago but I don't ride it anymore.  Being on a bike isn't the best position for lower back issues.  I did take my daughter's new bicycle for a twirl around our backyard when she got it a few years ago.

2. What's something you learned in school that wasn't part of the curriculum?

I learned that it is easier to do well in a class when you like the teacher and very difficult to do well when the teacher isn't someone who is kind or seems to take an interest in you.

3. What's a food you've never tried, but want to try? What's a food you've tried and will never try again?

I guess I would try crawfish.  It always look so fun when I see people on TV eating it but we don't have those around here.  I've tried pickled herring and don't ever want to taste that again!

4. Have you been more demanding on yourself lately or less? Why? Do you think that's a good trend?

I'd say less demanding.  I know it isn't good for me physically to put so many demands on myself so I've been trying to be mindful of that.  I do think that's a good trend since I can be one who takes on too much.

5. Who is your favorite book, movie, or TV show villain? 

Erica Kane on "All My Children".  What a great actress Susan Lucci is!  She used to come into the store that I worked at as a teenager and everyone said how nice she is in real life.  

6. How concerned are you about identity theft? 

I'm not too concerned.  I know it is an issue that I need to be on guard against but I don't think about it often.

7. I saw this last question on 
Dawn's blog a couple of week's ago and asked if I could share. Everybody hop over and say hi, but first answer this...would you rather have an ordinary home in an extraordinary place or an extraordinary home in an ordinary place? 

I would rather have an ordinary home in an extraordinary place.  I don't like to stand out much ;)

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

My extraordinary place would be on the ocean, for sure!  


  1. Erika Kane! Yes - a good answer! She's been a villain for a long time and is still just as popular!

  2. I pretty much make it a rule to stay away from anything pickled... well, not pickles, but anything besides that ;)

  3. Erika Kane is a good answer! Someone you love to hate...I think the best villains have a smidge of something likeable in them too.

    We're going to a crawfish boil this weekend (not in NJ!)...I'm looking forward to it!

  4. I've never had crawfish yet it seems as though people love them! Great answer with Erica Kane, she was awesome. Yes the ocean would be a great place to live.

  5. I don't think I could eat a crawfish. That does bring memories of when my dad and I used to catch them down by our house.

  6. You were very brave to try pickled herring. That won't ever come across my lips lol.


Thank you for visiting. Please let me know you stopped by so I can be sure to come visit you. ~Theresa
