Open Mindedness and Ursula

It’s Wednesday, and I promise… no Hump Day references.  Read on to find out my views on Open Mindedness and Ursula from the Little Mermaid.  I am busy working on a conference room pilot this week at work for our new e-store, so its a little nutzo.  Kids were sick yesterday and the Hubs has it now.  Not fun at my house.  But, now its time for Wednesday Hodgepodge…

1. The USA will mark Columbus Day this year on Monday, October 14th. What’s something you need or want to explore (literally or metaphorically speaking)?

I would like to explore the pyramids in Egypt.

2. The Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz, Ursula from The Little Mermaid, or Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty…who do you most love to hate?

Definitely, Ursula from The Little Mermaid.  She was just downright mean.

3. Is open-mindedness a virtue?

Definitely.  And, most people do not have it.

4. How often do you weigh yourself?


5. This question comes to you courtesy of Rebecca over at Making Memories, so thanks Rebecca! 

Costa Rica was recently named the happiest country in the world on the Happy Planet Index. What’s the happiest country in the world to you, and what makes it so?

Hmmmm.  I have only been to Canada and the United States.  So, I would have to say the United States.  Its the happiest to me because I am free.

6. Besides The Bible, what is one book you think should be mandatory reading for high school students? Why?

Wow.  Hmmmm.  It would have to be some sort of personal finance book.  Too many high schoolers these days don’t even know how to manage money or balance  checkbook.

7. I went shopping at some nearby outlets last week, and while I was there, I picked up a couple of Christmas gifts. How about you? Have you started your holiday shopping yet?

Heck no.  I did mention to the Hubs that Walmart had their layaway going already and that maybe we should pick up a few things for the kids.  But, other than that… nope.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

It is Wednesday and I am SO ready for the weekend.

    With the government being shutdown are we allowed to observe Columbus day. A place I would like to discover though is all these secret government and military places you know there has to be good stuff in there. A book every high schooler should read would be about respecting people and not to think you are owed anything. We have been much better about xmas shopping a little sooner now that we have kids lol

  2. You mean, we don’t go Christmas Eve anymore?

  3. Indeed Ursula was just mean!! I am glad you agree with me on that, I would pick the wicked witch but i just would laugh at her instead of being scared.
    I don’t feel Christmassy til Thanksgiving rolls around. However i like to keep away from the malls around the 2nd week of December onward..

  4. Huh – I liked your answer for 6 and agreed. I think the other main thing high school skipped teaching me was any sort of home economics. I was ready career-wise, but I certainly think – looking back – a bit on healthy cooking, meal planning and so forth would have saved me a fortune through my 20s (which I guess also brings it back to financing – so maybe they could combine that and REALLY be on to something).
