The Reality of the Blunt Hodgepodge

You know what to do. 

1. What's your worst food memory?  How about one of your best?
Worst memory might be when someone took us to CiCi's pizza when the kids were little. We were on deputation, raising support for us to go to Uganda, so we hit the road shortly after dinner. When we stopped for the night at a motel, Stephanie climbed out of the van and proceeded to vomit all over the parking lot. Matt watched for a moment before joining her. We got them upstairs to the room, but there was little we could do about the parking lot. Or the fact that the kids had emptied their stomachs directly next to the driver's side door of a very expensive sports car.

2. Do you appreciate people telling it like it is, or would you rather a speaker temper his/her words and maybe beat around the bush a little?  How about when you're the one communicating...which type are you? 
Really don't appreciate people telling it like it is when I haven't asked them for their opinion.

3. What's your favorite place to hang out?
Someplace quiet. I haven't found that place yet.

4. When do you most feel like you're a slave to time?
Ummm ... all the time?

5. What was the last concert you attended?  Who'd you go with? Was it any good?
The whole family went to a Legacy Five (Southern Gospel) concert in January. Most. Fun. Ever.

6. Reality TV...harmful or harmless?  What's your guilty pleasure when it comes to reality TV?
I've been told on more than one occasion that our family would make a good reality show, but I tend to disagree. I don't think anyone wants to know us that well.

I don't want to know us that well.

7. What's something you think is overrated?
The ability to cook. 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Sometimes gray hair is caused by age, but most of the time it's caused by your kids.

The Simplified Hodgepodge

Read. Comment. Click. Repeat.  Couldn't get any simpler than that.

1. The first week of August is National Simplify Your Life Week...what's one thing you could do this week to qualify as a participant?
Get rid of my boys. It's not ethical, but it would certainly simplify my life.

2. It's also National Peach Month...peach pie, peach cobbler, or please pour me aBellini?  What's your peach pleasure?
Peach cobbler, and lots of it.

3. Eleanor Roosevelt once wrote, "Do one thing every day that scares you." Agree or disagree...explain.
I encounter something every day that scares me. It's called life.

4. What's your favorite household chore?  Yes-you have to name one.
Cleaning out my email folders.

What? She insisted I name one, and this certainly beats cleaning the bathroom!

5. Fodors recently listed (what they've dubbed) the ten most beautiful sunset spots in America. Click here to read more and see the pretty pictures, but this is their list:

Butterfly Beach in Santa Barbara CA, Mount Haleakala in Maui HI, Old Fort Marcy Park in Santa Fe NM, Laguna Beach CA, Hopi Point in Grand Canyon AZ, Four Seasons in Miami FL, Santa Monica Pier in Santa Monica CA, Gay Head in Martha's Vineyard MA, Ensign Peak in Salt Lake City UT, and Mallory Square in Key West Florida.

Have you seen the sun set from any of these spots?  If you could choose to watch the sun set this weekend from one spot on the Fodors List, which would you choose?  Where was the prettiest sunset you've ever seen?
I fail to see how their sunsets could be prettier than any other sunsets. After all, it is the same sun.

6. What's your favorite or most used app?  If you don't use apps how about your favorite or most visited website?
I have a lot of organizational apps. They're not used much, though. I think I need an app that organizes my apps.

7. We've recently passed the halfway mark for 2013...write a seven word sentence that sums up your year thus far.
This is too much homework for summertime.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Men are 6 times more likely to be struck by lightning than women are.
Just thought you ought to know!
