WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE

Thank you Joyce....head on over and join in! 

1. When did you last sing happy birthday to someone? When were you last sung to? Does that embarrass you or do you enjoy being the center of attention on your special day?
In June we sang Happy Birthday to my Dad on his 90th birthday. I was sung to last October 3rd so it's coming up soon again. I use to be embarrassed but not anymore.
2.  Name a famous or 'infamous' person (living or deceased) who shares your birth day and month. Is that someone you'd like to meet in person if it were possible?
Of course I had to Google this one because I had no clue and the list is rather boring!

3. Someone hands you a box tied up in a lovely bow...what are you hoping to find inside?
I haven't got a clue because that doesn't happen to me. I spent too many years dreaming about this so I'm not even going there!

4. What can you guarantee about yourself?
I am a good person, I like the truth, I'd give you the shirt off my back if needed and I love the relationship I have with God.

5. Talking art and beautiful cities here...'The Last Supper' in the Santa Maria della Grazie Abbey in Milan Italy or 'The Mona Lisa' in The Louvre, Paris...which would you most like to see up close and in person?  Why?
Well I saw the 'Mona Lisa' at The Louvre in Paris two years ago and it was amazing so I'm on my way to see 'The Last Supper' in Milan! 

6. Your favorite dessert?
Cheesecake

7. This coming weekend marks the official start of autumn (in the Northern hemisphere)...what is something you do to get ready for fall? What is one thing you're looking forward to on your fall calendar? Spring or fall-which do you prefer?
There is nothing special I do to prepare for Fall. I know a lot of people change their closets out but it's not like that here in California. My clothes are pretty much the same all year except for adding a sweater at times. I enjoy handing out candy at Halloween and I do love Thanksgiving but it's okay if things slow down for awhile. Spring or Fall.....I like them both! 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Well tonight is the Season Finale of Big Brother 15 and I have to admit I am going to miss these guys. Since June 26th I have been watching 3 nights a week with every Thursday being a live eviction night! So tonight is the final three. Two competitions have already been played and the winners of the first two will have a competition tonight (most likely questions) and the winner will pick who they want sitting next to them as the finale two!!! The cast will vote for the winner who will receive $500,000. and the runner up will get $50,000. 

More importantly I am going to miss my Big Brother After Dark which is a live taping of the house for two hours each night. They show it at midnight on TVGN so I tape it and watch it in the morning while I'm on my computer. Last night was the last taping of After Dark. This is when you really get to know these people up close and personal. I have never paid CBS.com for the 24/7 live feed....I'm a huge fan but I have my limits! 

I do have my favorite who is actually in the final 3 so I'm crossing my fingers............

I used to share my birthday with a Dutch singer whose music I couldn't stand.

And I share my birthday (year included) with Monica Potter, the actress. I wouldn't mind meeting her some day. She must be great!

LynnMarie said...

I hope you enjoyed you Big Brother show. I never got into it at all. I know a lot of people who love it.

Sandra said...

woo hoo, Racquel Welsh was the other beautiful girl born on Sept 5th and Bob Newhart to... all the rest are ho hum..
i don't like presents so on a rare occasion someone has handed me one, i am inside my head practicing how to lie and say i love it...

Joyce said...

I've never watched Big Brother. We've seen so little TV this summer...we'll watch more in the dark days of winter : )

TexWisGirl said...

my lordie, you are addicted to big bro! :)

Chatty Crone said...

I remember your father's 90th. I like cheesecake too, but it is not my favorite. I watched some Big Brother - but my favorite is not in the last 3 - those are my unfavorites! lol sandie

STILLMAGNOLIA said...

Your dad is a very handsome man and in case I miss it....which I am prone to do....Happy Very Early Birthday my friend. Since school started back I find I miss dates more.

edshunnybunny said...

I'll be sitting there watching the Season Finale of BB #15, too!

It's so great that your family had a big birthday celebration with your dad, especially since he turned 90.

Ed and I took his mom back to visit her home, then we took her out to eat for her b'day in May. Little did we know it would be her last one. You just never know...

April said...

You KNOW I'll be tuned in to tonight's big FINALE! Who are you rooting for? I'm just so torn! I have to be honest! I'm pretty appalled by how Andy, Spencer, and GM talk on the after-dark show. Did you hear that GM lost her job because of her racist remarks? Spencer's been such a floater, but he's from my home state of Arkansas! I think Andy will end up winning.

Rebecca Jo said...

Cheesecake is never a wrong answer...

I'm excited for the end of Big Brother - see who will win. I think its anyone's game. I'm excited to see Dr. Will on the show tonight!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

I'm so jealous you saw that print in person that would be an AHHH moment.

Man I just can't get back into Big Brother like I use too :(

Hilary said...

I am not allowed to sing happy birthday! I sing that bad!

betty said...

Who can resist cheesecake, its my favorite too. I've never watched Big Brother, but I hope the ones you want win. It is hard to imagine that fall is descending upon us, of course, as you know, our leaves don't seem to change or fall off the trees until winter :)

Tesha Papik said...

Oh that made me sad about the present with a big bow because you so deserve it! Well I am praying this birthday that you get one!!!

bp said...

I haven't watched Big Brother in many seasons! I have seen the ads for it. Do you watch Survivor? I saw it was coming on again.

Have a good day!

Deb said...

cheese cake is a great desert...I've never watched Big Brother...I'm not a Fall Person...Spring and Summer are my seasons...but i'm sure you knew that...

Renegades said...

I love spring because of all the newness ......from baby calves to grass growing. I love fall because it's sweatshirts and football.

Trish said...

I love the Fall...we have had our furnace on a few times and today the A/C! Yep, that's Michigan...the snow will be flying before we know it. LOL. Oh, and I love cheesecake too!
~Blessings

Stephanie said...

Oh I would so love the opportunity to check some more masterpieces off my list, the Mona Lisa in Paris just fed the fire!!

(and I can't pick my fave dessert, like ever)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Yum can't go wrong with cheesecake.

The Boston Lady said...

I share my birthday with the late Charlie Chaplin and I always thought that was neat! If we ever meet Debby, I will have a box with a pretty bow on it for you!

I'm obsessed with Survivor like you are with BB.

Well did your favorite on Big Brother win. lol
It was hard to have a favorite this year because some of them were really mean at times.
But like you I watched it three times a week. I was really disappointed in the ones from Texas. Being born and raised here I thought they represented our state very badly.
I enjoyed reading your questions and answers. You share your big day with one my closest friends that I grew up with. She like you is a sweetheart.
Love
Maggie

My birthday is also the day of Michael the Archangel (Michaelmas). Not a bad entity to share a birthday with!

The Autumnal Equinox never really feels like the start of fall. We're still mowing here and the leaves haven't really started to change yet.
