WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE



1. Spring is in the air (at least in my neck of the woods) and the birds are singing...what's your favorite bird?
Well my favorite is a Lovebird because I had one for 13 years. Next to that I will say a Cardinal because I was born in Illinois.

2. Speaking of birds...do you tweet? If so tell us your screen name and we'll come flocking to your Twitter site. Even if you don't let's all pretend here that we do-in 140 characters or less, sum up your week so far.
I have a Twitter account but I think I've been away from it too long. I don't seem to understand it very much anymore with all the @ signs in front of them now. Mine is "foryourtears" but I only go on now with tweets for giveaways! Actually I get a little lost on Facebook too.

3. Its been reported recently that employers are not only viewing the facebook pages of potential hires but they're also requesting your facebook password to have a look at what you've kept from public view. What say you?
No way, that just isn't right!

4. It's April and you know what that means-Major League Baseball is back in action. What's your favorite baseball movie? If that's too hard, what's your favorite sports themed movie?
I would have to say Field of Dreams. I also enjoyed A League of Their Own.

5. Something else this season brings-asparagus. Yes please or no thanks? If it's yes please what's your favorite way to have it prepared?
I say yes please. I just made some this last weekend with some olive oil, S&P and some grated Parmesan in the oven.

6. What drives you? (Don't you love how I sandwiched that one in between asparagus and jugglers???)
I can't really explain it. Sometimes anger, usually compassion and often desire.

7. April 18th is International Jugglers Day...can you juggle?
No I cannot juggle but I can use a pogo stick!

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I think I have Spring fever. I have not wanted to be behind my computer screen lately. Needless to say I am behind in my reading but as you know I will eventually get around to reading your blogs. Normally on a Saturday Mark will run errands. He will say you want to go with and I will say no spending my day in front of my computer. Last Saturday I said yes and we had a very pleasant day out of the house. Yes it is definitely Spring fever! (If only I was driven to do some Spring cleaning)

I could use a little more drive in the housecleaning dept. too!

A pogo stick-I used to love them! I haven't been on one since I was a kid but they were so much fun. Might have to get one : )

April said...

I have a bad case of Spring fever, too! I have never tweeted...wouldn't know how to even get started!

Trennia said...

As usual I love all your hodgepodge answers!
You are such a sweetheart :)

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

There is absolutely no way I'd give a potential employer my FB password. Not because of what I post but because that's a total violation of privacy.

Tesha said...

I so want to catch spring fever. I need to get out :) Don;t feel bad HAVE FUN!

Kathy said...

Wow, you can use a pogo sitck? I'm impressed!

I see we both chose the same favorite movie today :)

I don't blame you for getting away from the computer more, it's too nice to be cooped up inside!

Nani said...

I get kinda lost on Facebook too! Hubby has called me and asked why I broadcasted that no on would be home for a week when I thought I was sending a friend a private message. And I'm studying this stuff at school! :)

I don't get that ask your password thing. Who DOES that? I don't want to be a patron there either. They abvio8usly don't have the "sharpest marbles in the bag" working for them to have given their passwords!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Field of Dreams good pick!!

Oh yes love asparagus the same way!

I'm on spring fever also!

Garden of Egan said...

Don't tweet. Too much computer time, or phone time.

Tammy Doane said...

I have been bitten by the spring fever bug too. It is hard to stay inside when the weather is beautiful.

Chatty Crone said...

I love asparagus grilled in the oven like that - once you have it that way - you won't eat it any other way - right? sandie

Renegades said...

Last night we had asparagus and Hiredman said sasasparagus. We got a chuckle out of it. 3 of us like it and Hiredman does not.

Janyce said...

I loved my pogo stick when I was younger ... and lighter. ;) Wouldn't it be fun to get on one right now. Whee! Thank you for the reminder of my happy childhood, Debby.

Deb said...

I don't think that is right that an employer wants your password on facebook...should be against the law...nice post...

That corgi :) said...

I think getting out of the house and spending time with Mark is so much more better than reading blogs; I'd take advantage of it this weekend too if the opportunity presents itself :)

betty

Caroline said...

Loved all your answers. I love baseball & we have both those movies. I have a hard time being in front of the computer lately I'm soooo behind. It's supposed to be in the 80's all weekend here so I plan on spending time outside. :)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I don't have anything to hide, but there is no way I would give out my facebook password. Just based on principle. If they are going to be that snoopy I don't want to work for them.

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

I chose Field of Dreams for #4, too ... and as far as I saw, you're the only other person who's chosen it, too.

Hope you take some time for a nice outing again soon. ;-)

Tonja said...

OOOH! YUCK! to asparagus! Never have liked it ...or beets...or rutabagas. But, I do love the spring. And, love to hear the birds singing. We have a lot of big ole blackbirds where I live and you can hear their loud 'caws' also! No, never have tweeted. Just another thing to learn and my brain is too crowded already! Oh, cardinals are my favorite! I feel so blessed whenever I see one. Can't juggle. Pogo stick? don't know? Skate board? just a little...long time ago!
Have a blessed day, friend!

Stacy said...

Your pogo stick, my stilts...we could have an act without the juggling. LOL

Mary at Deep South Dish said...

The weather has been a bit too nice for blogging hasn't it? Nice hodgepodge & getting to know you Debby!

Just wanted to drop by and thank you for visiting my site last weekend and for taking the time to comment! I appreciate that & hope you'll visit again soon.

The other night I had a dream that I was trapped in a tweet. Very weird.

Ginny Marie said...

A League of Their Own is one of my all time favorites! I also love roasting asparagus in the oven. It's so much tastier that way!

xinex said...

I love asparagus too. I'll have to try the way you prepare it....christine

Sarah (Nikki) said...

Hi Debbie....following you on twitter now. Mine is believer12345. Love your list as usual and I'm with you about spring and wanting to just be outside.

Formerly known as Frau said...

Everybody is having asparagus with parmesan I gotta try it! We have had several days of nice weather and spring is in the air...I want to get my patio furniture out and buy some flowers....a little worried it's not gonna last! Have a wonderful weekend!

Secret Agent Woman said...

For me, yes to asparagus and no to baseball. I would have a hard time picking a favorite bird, though. I love the raptors I see when I'm out walking (along with the owls who hoot outside my house at night) but also all the songbirds and woodpeckers who come to the feeders in my yard.
