Wednesday's Hodgepodge

Visit Joyce and join the fun!

1. Do you wear your heart on your sleeve, or keep your emotions tucked in tight?

I think I wear my heart on my sleeve, most of the time.  The few times where I’ve tried to keep my emotions tucked in tight they ended up exploding out and it wasn’t pretty ;)  I also think there is wisdom in using our words wisely and try to remember there is a time to speak and a time to be quiet. 
“A fool vents all his feelings, but a wise man holds them back.”  Proverbs 29:11

2. How did you meet your closest friend?

My closest friend now is my husband but I don’t think that is what the question is asking.  I’ve had many close friends during different seasons in my life but the one I think of is my childhood friend Lynn.  We met in first grade when she was the new girl in my class.  Our teacher, Mrs. Baker (one of my favorite teachers ever), asked me to be her special buddy and show her around.  We found out we lived only a block away from each other and became instant friends.  She moved across the country when we were 16 but we’ve stayed in touch and remained friends.  Although we don’t speak as much as we used to, she will always be my special friend and I love her like family. 

3.  Pink lemonade, grilled salmon, cotton candy, pink grapefruit, a strawberry milkshake, or raspberry sorbet...of the pink foods listed, which one is your favorite? Least favorite? Which one have you most recently consumed?

A strawberry milkshake is my favorite.  My least favorite is grilled salmon.  I have most recently consumed pink grapefruit.  I was on a pink grapefruit kick a few months ago, hoping it would burn some fat! 

4. When were you last 'tickled pink' over something? Explain.

When I discovered my cell phone wasn’t lost.  I discovered my cell phone wasn’t in my bag a few days ago.  I tried looking in the car but didn’t see it.  So I decided to wait a bit and see if it turned up.  Today my home phone rang and when I looked at the caller ID I saw my cell phone number.  I thought maybe someone had found it and was calling to return it.  I answered and it was my son saying he found my phone under the passenger seat while he was out with my husband.  I was so relieved that no one was running up my cell phone bill and that I didn’t have to go through the hassle of getting a new phone and possibly having to get a new phone number.  I’ve had that phone number for probably over twenty years and want to keep it.  I’ve had a few old friends get back in touch with me through that number. 

5. Are you a fan of television talk shows? Daytime, nighttime, or both? What's your favorite?

Not particularly.  Although once in a while I do enjoy watching Kelly and Michael.  I know she is from New Jersey but she reminds me of a Long Island girl.  I think Michael was a good choice for replacing Regis.  They are a great combination. 

6. When was the last time you wanted to ask a question, but felt too foolish to do so?

I can’t think of a specific example right now.  Usually I wait before asking a question and hope that by listening to what everyone else is saying I can put the pieces together.  Sometimes it works.

7. My favorite __________________right now is _________________.

My favorite snack right now is air popped popcorn with melted coconut spread. 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I watched parts of the Super Bowl on Sunday night and thought it was an exciting game but was so disgusted by the fight that broke out.  The player who started it was ejected from the game.   Big deal!   I don’t know if there were any other consequences but think there should be.  That’s my random thought ;)


  1. That popcorn sounds interesting-pocorn and coconut are two of my favorite things, so I might have to try it. The game left me feeling a little sad...kind of the exclamation point on a rough season in the NFL.

  2. Wait...I never thought about putting coconut spread on popcorn! Have mercy! I agree...Michael Strahan is doing a great job as Kelly's sidekick. He's hilarious!

  3. Hi, Theresa!

    Thanks for stopping by.

    We went to some friends house for a small Super Bowl Party.
    It was a good game, hubby & I were for opposing teams. To make it fun.
    That was horrible about the fight, right on national t.v.
    Glad he was ejected.
    But, there should be consequences.
    I haven't heard anything about damage caused by fans.
    So that is good.

    Enjoy the Pink Panther Theme song :)

  4. Coconut spread on popcorn? Great idea. Will try it this weekend! I know the feeling when I think I lost something and then I find it. Great feeling. Happy Wednesday!

  5. It was my first ever superbowl...and I agree with you. It spoilt a good family game...I was very disappointed.
    My hubby is my best friend too..but like you I thought that wasn't what the question was,
    Im a strawberry shake girl too....and Popcorn and coconut....oh myyyy!
    Have a great week

  6. I do the same thing with number 6. :-) I can usually figure out what's going on if I give it time.
    Pet peeve- People on Facebook asking questions where if they would read through the comments or the previous posts, they would know what's going on. :-/
    Glad your cell phone wasn't lost! :-)

  7. Hi,
    Your popcorn sounds good. :-)
    I enjoyed reading your answers.

  8. Coconut popcorn? Never had it! Although my favorite is fresh kettle corn! Also I get a bag from Trader Joes which is also good. It's hard to not eat the entire bag!

  9. Hi Theresa! Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, I'm glad you did cause I found your blog and followed you. BTW, so glad you found your phone, i know that feeling of panic!

  10. What a great reason to be tickled pink! I will have to try that on my popped corn, sound different.

  11. I agree! I have found that my closest friends are "seasons" during my life, becoming close during those times where we're most connecting through whatever life is taking us. These friends never go away, but others pop in. Strawberry shake here too (although chocolate is better)! How awesome on your son finding your phone! I am currently changing my phone to another and it's a frustrating process! I'm not even changing carriers or plans!
