WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE


You know this is fun, what are you waiting for?
Click on the button and join us.



1. What reveals more about a woman-her refrigerator or her purse?
Well that's a great question. I'm not sure. I am thinking her purse but lately I've been carrying a very tiny one which doesn't show much about me inside!

2. When was the last time you went to the zoo? Where? What's your favorite zoo animal?
It's been a number of years since I have been. The Brookfield Zoo in Illinois or the San Diego Zoo in California. Giraffe will always be my answer to that question.

3. What social issue fires you up?
I, for many years, get fired up about all the things that are printed in Spanish. This is the United States of America and we write/speak English. I don't think you should be able to become an American citizen unless you are able to do it in English. I don't expect to go to France/Italy and see everything in English!

4. Are you a coupon clipper? If so, are you extreme?
I am a clipper. No I am not extreme but I know several people who are and they sure can save a lot of money.

5. What is one of your favorite souvenirs brought back from your travels?
I can't think of one that I bought for myself. I do have a small Statue of Liberty that was bought for me in a shop by the twin towers in August the same year as 9/11. To think that if my son's trip was a few weeks later he could have possibly been in the towers when that happened.

6. Lemon meringue or key lime?
I would have to say key lime, so yummy!

7. What is the most beautiful word you know in any language?
Je t'aime (I Love You in French)

8. Insert your own random thought here.
If you watch American Idol please vote. At this point and time I would like to see Lauren and Scotty be in the top 2. (just my opinion) I just haven't liked Haley enough even though she has a great voice. I didn't like her attitude towards the judges last week. Anyway if you are a fan and watch please note that you can vote online for free. I will be voting over and over again for Scotty!

I do have to agree with you on #3.

Wow ... praise God that your son's trip was in August. That has to be quite a special keepsake for you on so many levels.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Joyce said...

That is a special keepsake.

I haven't really enjoyed AI this season...I haven't cared for Haley from the beginning. At this point in time Lauren is my fave but even she is sorta eh to me. Do you watch The Voice? I am enjoying that now.

Thena said...

I will just say I agree with #3. I could rant but I won't. Great answers.

When I lived in Miami, I got so frustrated that I couldn't even drop off clothes at the dry cleaners without having to communicate with my hands. I feel like you should be able to speak the native language and should, if in business, do so. I am not opposed to people speaking their own language...just have the courtesy to communicate in the language of the country in which you live!!

Kathy said...

I agree with you! Why should we have to provide Spanish in America?! It's a long-time pet peeve of mine.

EmptyNester said...

I don't carry a purse at all anymore. After the lovelies grew up, there really wasn't a need! I prefer really, really simple now. That way, I don't leave things anywhere and have to wonder where they are. LOL

Donna @ The House on the Corner said...

Totally agree with you on #3. You should be here in Texas - even the billboard are in Spanish. I'm ready to give Mexas (my word for what Texas as become) back to Mexico but put a barbed wire fence at the Oklahoma border complete with guards in gun towers.

Tammy Doane said...

Great answers and what a special souvenir you have. Have a great day!!!

Jenn Erickson said...

Fun getting to know you better through this post. It's been years since I've been to the zoo as well, but the last time my family went we were at the San Francisco Zoo and the highlight was feeding the giraffes!

Totally agree with #3. You stated it very well.

Lemon Meringue and Key Lime are two of my favorites. Ugh. I'd be loathe to choose ;-)

Definitely looking forward to watching Idol tonight with my girls.

Nice answers...

I think my purse tells more about me.. Since I share a refrigerator with my Family there is stuff in there I do not eat..

It has been about a year since we went to the zoo. We hope to go before the baby comes..

Social issues with Education..

I love to clip coupons.. I am not extreme..

Have a great day..

skoots1mom said...

aesome...such fun...love the statue of liberty story...God providea ;)

Brandy@YDK said...

i don't know if i've ever heard Je t'aime spoken.

Cathy said...

I totally agree with #3!

secret agent woman said...

Did you know giraffe's have the same number of vertebrae in their necks as humans do? Theirs are just very long.

Caroline said...

Great answers and I love to clip coupons !!

That corgi :) said...

with you about things in Spanish, I can so relate. If people want to come here to our country, they need to learn the language. My sister lived for two years in the Netherlands and she was expected to know the language or bring her own interpreter, one was not provided for her.

Voted this week for American Idol. It should be an interesting finale indeed!

betty

Kerri said...

right on #3! when we go to other places its not like that
im sure other ppl from places think why spanish if they do it for them they should do it for everyone then

but anyways haha
i had an ex bf that knew french and he would say i love you and i would make him say it in french haha
it is very pretty!

i dont watch AI but i will vote for u!!

Alexis AKA MOM said...
