Singing the Hodgepodge Praises

You know what day it is. You know what to do. Read. Comment. Click. Repeat. Enjoy!

1. Share a favorite song lyric.
I would never say I can't think of one because I wouldn't want to get an "F", : ) but although I've appreciated many a well-turned musical phrase, I can't currently locate a favorite in the deep recesses of my mind. However, I am a big fan of words, and I do have a favorite phrase to share with you, even though it didn't come from a song. In a book I was reading, a laid-back country boy announced that he was "imminently cognizant of the grammatical parameters." You'd be amazed how often I manage to work that phrase into a conversation!

2. When was the last time someone yelled at you?
I haven't been yelled at, but I have been insulted. At work this week when I offered to take a message, the caller said he'd rather leave the message with a real person, but if none was available he guessed he'd leave it with me. I have promised my co-workers that, in the future, I will try to act more like a real person.

3. Money, fame, happiness...are they mutually exclusive?
Only if you see money and fame as a means of achieving happiness.

4. What is your favorite dish to prepare for family and friends that doesn't require turning on the stove, oven or an outdoor grill?
Ice, of course! (It's my specialty.)

5. The first week of August is National Simplify Your Life Week. What is one thing you could do this week to simplify your life? Hire a maid and a cook. Will you do it? Probably not.

6. On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being 100% and 1 being not at all) how tuned in are you to your country's national political scene?
Let's just say I'm more in tune with the political scene than the politicians apparently are with the will of the people. A condition I hope can be rectified during the next election cycle.

7. What are your final parting words to the month of July?
I don't usually speak to months since they never speak to me.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I do, however, occasionally speak to our pets, uncooperative inanimate objects (the copier), and people who obviously flunked drivers' education and yet happen to be operating a vehicle directly in front of me.


  1. Love #5, amen to #6, and right there with you on #8 (well, except for the pets!)

    (A little nervous about the word verification for this comment: poxorme?!? Hopefully I'll always get chosen over that alternative!

  2. I don't REALLY think that money or fame could make me happy, but I'd sure like to try it and see.

  3. Love your "ice" answer! and your random!

  4. I agree on your #8 and I think I must have followed half of them today. Ice...that's good. Yes you must work harder to be a real person...that is just too funny!

  5. Could you please post your recipe for "ice"? Sounds delicious ;)

  6. I might have to borrow that phrase : ) Ha- a real person. Just goes to show that we have come to expect automated responses on the phone lines.

  7. Answers are always so funny. Road rage don't even get me started. Pull out in front of me and then go below the speed limit has to be the worse.

  8. Loved reading your answers. How awesome that you can make ice! Enjoy that rest of your week.

  9. I love ice too :)
    Visiting today from Hodgepodge.


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