What day is it? What day is it? Anyone? Bueller? It’s Hump Day! And, Hodgepodge Wednesday! Today, you will learn my opinion on college and reality TV and the cool thing that happened to me Monday night. So, this is a crazy-fun blog hop where you answer some questions, link up on Wednesdays and have some fun hopping around reading other blogs! So, let’s go!
1. What’s your worst food memory? How about one of your best?
Oh. My. Goodness. It was eating rattlesnake with the skin still on it at Girl Scout Camp. UGH. I can still taste it in my mouth. I ended up spitting it out and then tossing it into the grass and got in trouble by one of the leaders. Crazy people. I even tried to tell them I was allergic to rattlesnake. LOL. The sad thing is… my mom was there at camp with me. And, I still had to do it.
My best food memory was at this hole-in-the-wall Mexican place in Sedona, Arizona. It was a dive. We walked in and NO ONE spoke English and the menus were in Spanish. I recognized carnitas on the menu and ordered for all of us. THE BEST MEAL EVER. They were pork tacos with the BEST pico de gallo ever. EVER. Let me put it to you this way… if I was on death row– these tacos and a couple sets of crab legs would be my last meal.
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?
It would depend on what they were telling me. Some people do not have a good delivery of their opinion, it comes across very critical and condescending.
3. What’s your favorite place to hang out?
Anywhere with my kids. Home. Park. Vacation. Restaurant.
4. When do you most feel like you’re a slave to time?
When I am at work– I can’t ever seem to find enough time.
5. What was the last concert you attended? Who’d you go with? Was it any good?
Eric Clapton, baby! Went with the Hubs, but we were dating then. It was amazing!
6. Reality TV…harmful or harmless? What’s your guilty pleasure when it comes to reality TV?
I am not into the fake-reality television. I do like the ones where it is real people living their lives– without all the drama. I don’t like Honey Boo Boo or anything like that. However, I do like Mountain Men, American Pickers, and Fast and Loud– and my guilty reality TV is Pawn Stars.
7. What’s something you think is overrated?
Reality TV. LOL. Just kidding. I hate to say this (kids, stop reading right now)… College right out of high school. I went to college right out of high school and dropped out. Went to a community college and dropped out. I began working and a few years later went back to college for my associates degree in accounting… and I am not working on my Master’s. That being said, I do think college is very important, however not necessarily right out of high school for all kids. I would have been better off going straight to work and then going back to school in a couple of years. Besides, if I hadn’t dropped out, I wouldn’t be an accountant.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
So, yesterday, I was leaving work and pulled up to a four-way stop close in town and the Google Street-View Car was coming towards me! How sweet was that! He gave me the thumbs up when he passed me, so I waved. I checked last night to see if my picture was on Google Maps at the intersection, but nothing so far.
