Wednesday Hodgepodge

Jeez, it seems to fly by from one Wednesday to the next!  Time for another Wednesday Hodgepodge.  Questions courtesy of Joyce at This Side of the Pond.  Go on over to her blog where you will find links to all of us who play along on Wednesdays.  Come join's fun! 

1. In what ways do you indulge yourself?

I love chocolate, so, that's usually my go to anytime I feel the need to indulge...and even when I don't :) 

2. Have you ever taken a cooking class? Any interest? What type of class would you most like to try?

I don't think I need cooking classes because I am the chef of everything boxed, canned and frozen.  I also make a mean take out.  Who needs classes for that?  Seriously though, I'm sure my family wishes I would have taken a class or two.  I even think about it sometimes when I'm watching the Food Network...which I do on a regular basis.  But then I come to my senses and call Pizza Hut.  Does anyone else who hates to cook love watching the Food Network and convince themselves that if they only had Giada's kitchen they would love to cook?  No.  Only me, huh?  Ok then...

3. What does it mean to be a good citizen?

Follow the laws of your state and country, vote, take care of the environment around you, be nice to your fellow citizens...appreciate the abundance of everything we are so fortunate to have in this country.

4. 'Tis the season of the political these ads influence your vote?

Nope.  Because no matter who they are, they can spin anything to make it look they way they want it to.  I actually throw every piece of political mail in the trash before I even look at it, I don't answer my phone during election cycles (that's what caller id and voice mail are for!) and I usually mute the TV when the ads come on.  I do my own research and vote my conscience.

5. What's something you see today that makes you wish you were a kid again?

I can't think of anything that makes me want to be a kid.  I think I had an awesome childhood and I think today's kids are missing out on the simpler times with all this technology they are hooked to. But, I see things all the time that make me wish my kids were little again.  Fisher Price has a doll house that I am dying to buy for someone...sadly, my girls are too old for such things now.  Guess I just have to wait for grandkids...

6. What's your least favorite cliche?

At the end of the day...   It's over used and I'm sick of it 

7. What percentage of your Christmas shopping has been completed? How does that make you feel?

Zero, nada, zilch, none.  I don't feel anyway about it because it's normal for me.  I can't get in the spirit of buying things until it gets closer to the day.  I'll start getting panicky around the second week in December.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Words cannot express how badly I wish it was November 7th.  I am sick to death of all this election stuff.  I just want it to be over and then lets deal with the outcome.  I wish politicians wanted to be public servants...

Ok, ladies and gents, that's a wrap on another edition of Wednesday Hodgepodge.  Hope everyone is having a fantastic week!


  1. I totally understand what you mean about the Fisher Price things - I was so sad when I gave our "Little People" away... :-( I think I saved some of them for my future grandbabies... but that's many many years away! And yes... chocolate is ALWAYS a good indulgence! :-) Have a good day, my Arizona friend!

    1. I LOVE Little People...but not the new fat ones...I like the old fashioned ones, you know, the choking hazard kind ;). I'm so glad my kids grew up before they changed everything!

  2. The world is a vampire sent to drain (as the song goes). Everything has always been hazardous for stupid people. lol

    Like you, I long for the elections to be over. I even unfollow people from both parties on Twitter who consistently harp.


  3. I'm in love with the little tutus baby girls are wearing now. I need a granddaughter...first I need my girls to find the right boy, get married and then produce a granddaughter, but still, I'm ready for a baby girl to shop for : )
