Wednesday Hodgepodge-Vol. 97

Since this week is autumn break for Wednesday Hodgepodge, I thought I would reach WAY BACK in my archives for an old Wednesday Hodgepodge.  This one happens to be back in October 2012.  Five years ago!  Can you believe I have been blogging that long?  Let’s see what I had to say in volume 97… 

Originally posted 10/10/12:

1.  In what ways do you indulge yourself?

Hmmmm.  I love to buy scrapbook paper.  So, that’s probably how I indulge myself.  Shopping up and down the aisles of a scrapbook store picking out papers…That, or eating GOOD dark chocolate.

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

Never.  I would love to.  Maybe a baking class, because I really suck at baking.  It’s hit or miss with me.  I am excellent at baking brownies, but everything else is a crap-shoot.

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

For lack of a better example– to be like the boy scout helping the senior citizen across the street.  To be help others, supportive, and try to be the best person you can be.  Also, to watch out for people who can’t watch out for themselves (kids, elderly, animals).

4.  ‘Tis the season of the political advert…do these ads influence your vote? 

Heck no.  And, they are rather annoying.  If they stopped sending me those stupid shiny cards… my taxes would probably go down.  Let alone how many trees would be saved!

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

I ran to Menards today at lunch to buy floor tile for the bathroom and I was walking around looking at stuff.  They had this really cool Mythbusters race track/test track thing.  I actually stopped and picked it up and was looking at it… and considered buying it.  For me.

6.  What’s your least favorite cliche?

“Livin’ the dream.”  I hate when people say that.  I just want to smack them.

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

Absolutely none.  And I feel a little panicky about it.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I have a ton of emails in my in-box here at work… and all of them require research or journal entries… and I really want to just delete them and pretend I didn’t get them.  But, I won’t… maybe.

  1. #6 made me laugh! “Livin’ the dream, baby”!!!! 😀

  2. AMEN on #4!

    I totally get the scrapbook paper addiction. I don’t even paper-scrap anymore and I have a hard time resisting paper! But I’m gathering things to start Smash-booking to use the scrapbook supplies I have collecting dust…which means I’ll probably start buying paper again! 😀

  3. My three year old daughter and I Smash Book together. She has a ball and I don’t have to worry about her messing up my “real” scrapbooks with her crazy obsession with glue. Have you been to Walmart? The ones around here in Ohio have HUGE sections devoted to Smash Books now!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  4. There was a guy I used to work with that would say that EVERYTIME someone would ask him how he was. I would just want to throw my stapler at him. LOL.

  5. I get the paper addiction. I just pulled out my scrapbooking yesterday and spent the first hour looking at the paper : ) I’m great with the buying, not as diligent in actually putting it into the scrapbook!
