Peanuts! Popcorn! Hodgepodge!

This week we have Peanuts. (Not the salty kind, but the humorous kind.) We have popcorn, competition and chivalry. So after leaving a comment, click on the link and follow along over at Joyce's. You know you want to.

1. It's a brand new month...share one thing you're looking forward to in October.
How can I stop at just one? Autumn is my favorite time of year. I love the cooler temperatures, the changing colors, the crispness in the air ... of course, I don't get to experience these things because I live in Florida. We still hit 90 degrees on a regular basis.

Not that I'm bitter or anything.

2.  Is chivalry dead?  Explain.
No, but I think it might be on oxygen.

3.  On October 2, 1950 the Peanuts comic strip made its debut.  Which character is your favorite?  Which character is most like you?  (Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Shroeder, Snoopy, Woodstock, or Pig Pen)  If you need a description click 
here .
I love them all, and I think I'm most like Linus. I have a take-life-as-it-comes attitude and a occasional surprising word of wisdom to offer, but I'm a basket case without my security blanket.

4.  What's something you're competitive about?
It's so much that I'm competitive ... I just like to win. (The first step is admitting you have a problem.)

5. October is National Popcorn Popping Month...are you a fan?  How do you like your popcorn?
Am I a fan of National Popcorn Popping Month? I suppose so. But why doesn't chocolate have a month? I could really support an idea like that.

6.  When did you first realize the world is small?
When I started taking up more space in it.

7.  In terms of architecture, what's the most beautiful building you've seen up close and in person?
Big or small, home outshines them all. Look at me; I'm a poet!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
I have a lot of thoughts right now--random and not so random--and they're pinging around in my brain like a room full of superballs run amok. 


  1. I love your architecture answer! There's no place like home!

  2. Such a clever title : ) I love that tree in your header but am thinking it is not from South Florida?

    #8-Always! Now if I could just organize them life would be good : )

  3. I enjoyed your little poem:) It was nice to visit your little corner of the Hodgepodge. It sure looks like fall in GA this morning with all of the fog. Have a beautiful day!

  4. Let's get a National Chocolate Month. We could start a petition. Although there are chocolates for Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Hallowe'en and Christmas.

  5. I'd be all over a National Chocolate Month! Want to start a petition? ;) Home is definitely where the heart is!

  6. I love all those things about fall too! I like to have chocolate after popcorn. I prefer something sweet after something salty. I'd sign the petition :)

  7. Your answers totally made me laugh out loud - especially #2 :) Come on over to my blog next week and you can see some great fall colors while you enjoy the warmth of Florida - I am hosting a fall photo link party :)

  8. You always give me my daily dose of "out loud laughter" when I stop by. I'm a Linus too for sure! Another delightful entry!


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