The Super Competitive Hodgepodge

I want to inform you that, just like at the Superbowl Party, snacks consumed while participating in the Hodgepodge have zero calories. 

Just so we're clear.

1.  In the USA this coming Sunday millions will be watching as the Baltimore Ravens take on the San Francisco 49's in the Superbowl.  What was the last event you attended that could be described as super?
Are you kidding me? Life with four teenage boys and a dog with a major attitude, plus I'm married to the original Indiana Jones. Everyday LIFE is a super event. (Super busy, super crazy, super intense, sometimes super smelly ...)
2.  Share something you're a fan of these days?
Peace and quiet. Don't see it much, but absence just makes the heart grow fonder.
3. How do you feel about wings?  In case anyone is confused, I'm talking the edible appetizer kind.  What's your preferred seasoning on a wing-hot, mild, teryiaki, sweet and sour, other?  Do you make your own or is there a favorite place you like to go for wings?   
I don't like having to work that hard for my food, neither do I want to leave countable substance on my plate so everyone can know just how much I've eaten.
4.  As long as we're talking sports today...have you followed the Lance Armstrong story?  Did you watch his interview with Oprah and if so what was your reaction to his confession and subsequent remarks?  
I'm aware of the story but have not followed it, so I can only comment on what I've heard--a dangerous practice that millions of people engage in every day. Since that would not be prudent, I will simply comment on what I know:  "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Anyone can do wrong because we have a sinful nature. It's what we do with God's forgiveness that counts.
5.  What's a question you hate to be asked?  
I'm not a fan of "Did you do this?" because it usually means I'm in trouble. A close second would be the oh-so-similar, "Why didn't you do this?"
6. The coaches in this Sunday's big game happen to be real life brothers.  Jim Harbaugh coaches the 49er's and his older brother John Harbaugh coaches the Baltimore Ravens.  Were you and your sibling(s) competitive?  In what way? Are you still?  If you're an only child how did you handle competition growing up?  
I am not at all competitive, and contrary to popular opinion, I have never left intentional scratches on an opponent during a frenzied round of Dutch Blitz.
7.  What's your favorite game involving a ball and when did you last play?    
Boccie ball. I don't think I've ever played it, but I like saying boccie. (or bocce, whichever you prefer.)
8.  Insert your own random thought here. 
Sometimes you don't do something because you want to. You do it because it's the right thing to do.

I know, profound, right? Sometimes I amaze myself!



  1. Your #1 tickled me and I'm sure my best friend would answer much the same. She is the mother to 3 sons and an adventuresome husband and life is often like a 3-ring circus for her.

    Love your #8 and yes, I do think it is very profound!

  2. I forgot about Bocce Ball-that is fun. Our friends have a court in their backyard and we've played there some.

    #8-may not be profound, but true nonetheless : )

  3. You just reminded me that we have a Bocce Ball game that we've never used :)

  4. I am so glad that there were no calories in your blog!

  5. I love your header picture. That would be the perfect thing for me to see out of my window! I forgot about Bocci ball! We love to play that on the beach. I grew up with parents who loved football and three brothers. Needless to say, I'm the football fan in our house. The husband wasn't until he married me. Now he is and all the lovelies are except for the youngest. Enjoy your weekend!!!


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