Something New! And Random!

If you've missed the Random Dozen, and seriously, who hasn't, then you're in for a treat. Joyce over at From This Side of the Pond has decided to start a brand new meme called Random Hodgepodge. Seven random questions, and then you are supposed to contribute your own random thought (G rated, please) for the #8 slot each week. Sounds like a lot of fun, doesn't it? So let's go!

 1. Do you think you're more like your mom or your dad?
Since my dad is mostly bald, I'm glad to say I resemble my mother.

2. Do you like roller coasters?
My life is a roller coaster. Sometimes there's thrills (thanks, Indiana!) and sometimes there's chills. Sometimes I'm screaming and sometimes I just want to throw up.

3. How did you name your blog and do you now wish you'd thought about it maybe another five minutes before you hit publish? Would you change your blog title if it were not a huge pain in the derriere? (French makes everything sound a little nicer doesn't it?)
I named my blog Jill Boyd's Place because, well, I'm Jill Boyd and this is my place. If I thought for five more minutes I might have named after someone else, but that really wouldn't make any sense would it? And although I can sometimes be a pain in the derriere, my blog title isn't. : )

4. What is the best wedding gift you received? Not married? Didn't get any gifts? Then what is the best wedding gift you've given?
Best gift I received was my husband. He still works, he still goes with most of the decor, and I've finally gotten him broken in just the way I like him.

5. What is the one bill you most hate to pay?
The one that's due now.

6. Is the glass half full or half empty?
I think a more important question is, what's in the glass?

7. What is your favorite word? Okay okay. Calm down. How about oneof your favorite words?
Not to be a kiss up or anything, but I actually happen to like the word hodgepodge quite well. Since that answer may show up for many people, I will also go with the word onomatopeia because who wouldn't love a word that's kind of a roller coaster all by itself?

8. For this last one, we are supposed to place our own random thought here. Here's mine:  deodorant is never optional.

Okay, I'll explain that last one tomorrow. In the meantime, go see Joyce from This Side of the Pond and link up for some more Hodgepodgedness. For some reason my computer is not showing me her really cool button, so I don't know if it's showing up on your computer, but you can still click this link down here so you don't miss all the fun. But hey, don't forget to leave a comment first!


  1. I'm so glad you're wouldn't be the same without you, and #2-I wish I'd said that!

    Fun answers as always : )

  2. I think there are times when I shoudl be more concerned with what's in the glass than how full or empty it is. Especially if it's a good wine.

  3. Like your answer to #1. Well why didn't I think of that answer for #4! I wish a lot of people could read your answer to #8 :)

  4. Can always count on you for a laugh or two.
    And nope haven't seen anybody else using hodgepodge as their fav word.

  5. Glad I visited here today...loved reading your answers!!

  6. You are too funny! Always love your answers!I love your answer about the roller coaster, but how true!
    until next time... nel


Well don't just stand there! Say something! : )
