Wednesday... half way through the week... time to Hodgepodge

1. Spring is in the air (at least in my neck of the woods) and the birds are singing...what's your favorite bird?

My favorite bird is the one with wings... yeah.. that one :)
I'm not a big bird watcher, but I do love my hummingbird feeder that attracts those fast little boogers.  I love that I HEAR them before I notice them.  They are amazing little creatures.

2. Speaking of you tweet? If you do share your screen name and we'll come flocking to your twitter site. Even if you don't let's all pretend here that we do-in 140 characters or less, sum up your week so far.
I do Tweet ... my name on Twitter is RebeccaJoKnits ... creative, huh?
I've wanted to change it a few times...
RebeccaJoRuns - RebeccaJoPhotographs - RebeccaJoEats - RebeccaJoWhines
... but knitting is the original & goes with my blog, so it works :)
I always say that Twitter is like my imaginary friend.  I'm someone that talks to myself anyways - at least on Twitter, during the day, I can say what I think... & then sometimes, my 'imaginary friend' even talks back :)
My pretend tweet of the week here?  Dont even need 140 characters
"I'm tired"

3. It's been reported recently that employers are not only viewing the facebook pages of potential hires but they're also requesting your facebook password to have a look at what you've kept from public view. What say you?
Dont they teach you repeatedly to NEVER give a password out?  That's sort of private - right?  That's pushing the line to me.  I've got nothing to hide on my Facebook, but I'm also not going to give a password that has access to my private information.  Cant you even make purchases on Facebook that charge your cell phone account?  Yeah - aint no one getting my password.  If that would cost me a job, I'd say that I wouldnt want to work for those people anyways.

4. It's April and you know what that means-Major League Baseball is back in action. What's your favorite baseball themed movie? If that's too hard what's your favorite sports themed movie?
I'm not big into any sport besides Tennis... but I actually do love a baseball movie.
"The Natural" with Robert Redford... I always loved that.  My first taste of Mr. Redford.
But another favorite sports themed movie

 Anyone remember this TOTALLY CHEESY 80's movie about gymnastics?  Its when all the craze with Mary Lou Retton & our USA team in the Olympics was rockin!  But the idea that Janet Jones (who is the wife of the Great One - Wayne Gretzksy - thank you 80's trivia) who is 8 feet tall could be a gynmist, is INSANE.  But it had a great soundtrack.

 5. Something else this season brings-asparagus. Yes please or no thanks? If it's yes please what's your favorite way to have it prepared?

YES!  My sister in law just made some for my BIL's birthday party.. it was DELISH!  And I actually get some asparagus in my co-op basket Thursday. I've never cooked it myself, but if I can get anywhere close to what my SIL did, I'll be in heaven.

I think it involves LOTS of butter... good bye healthy food

 6. What drives you? (Don't you love how I sandwiched that one in between asparagus and jugglers?)

My car ... ba da-dum ... come on, I know I wont be the only one that says that...

OK - serious answer... my chauffeur...

...Sorry, couldnt resist...

I think my future drives me... I look ahead & dont want to be 'old' ... I dont want to be out of shape... I dont want to be sick... I dont want to be miserable... looking at my future makes me want to make myself a better, healthier, happier person today...

7. April 18th is International Jugglers Day...can you juggle?

Does 2 items count as juggling?  Then YES! :) 

More then 2 items?  Then no...

But I'm a MASTER at juggling a full schedule!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Neuropathy still sucks


  1. I'll pray for your pain to cease this morning.

  2. *HUGS*

    You like asparagus? ewwww =P

    I love following you on Twitter :)

    And I agree with the whole FB thing. I don't have anything to hide but it is an invasion of privacy to be forced to give your password to an employer.

  3. You totally nailed #3! your answer to #6...your sense of humor and my sense of humor are right on! Please let your neuropathy be a thing of the past SOON!

  4. American Anthem! I'd completely forgotten about that movie. Yes Janet Jones as a gymnast is a stretch but the music was great!

    I think Janet Jones is married to Wayne Gretsky, the hockey player. Cynthia Rhoades from Dirty Dancing is married to Richard Marxx. Why I know this is a mystery but its one of those tiny useless pieces of trivia wedged in my too crowded brain : )

    I will look for you on Twitter.

  5. We had our first bit of asparagus from the patch on the farm yesterday. I loved it. So good!!

  6. I finally figured out how to cook asparagus so that I like it - & it's SO EASY. I just put it in a pan, spray some cooking oil on it & sprinkle whatever spices I'm in the mood for & then just bake it on 325 for a while - stirring occasionally.

    Love your other answers :)

  7. hanks for the movie suggestion, I can't believe I haven't seen that.

  8. I love asparagus too! Good answer to #6.

  9. When I was tweeting, you were my favorite person to tweet with. Plus, I felt like I really knew you so that made it easy for me.
    Sorry, I got nothing "funny" in me today. Actually, nothing funny at all this week. I'm working on it though.

  10. I grilled asparagus for the first time yesterday following a recipe I found on all-recipes. Delicious! Feel better.

  11. Forget the movie, which I think I actually might have seen (the 80's was the decade of cheesy movies). I'm DIGGING that movie poster!! Yowsa! LOL

  12. That's so neat how a person can hear a hummingbird's wings before they see it. I never really thought about it before, but you're right. If I'm ever asked this question again, I might have to consider "hummingbird." :)
