1. How often do you check the weather? How do you check the weather?
I check the weather constantly... I have it saved in my favorites on my computer, at home & at work... I have 2 different apps on my phone. I like the 'hourly' feature from "The Weather Channel" site. As a runner & a photographer, the weather each hour makes a difference. Its when I can schedule a run between rain bursts... or its when I can figure out a perfect time to take a good shot with the camera.
My parents used to always say they could ask me what the weather was going to be because I always knew... even as a child... weather intrigues me.
2. Since this is Volume 84 of the Wednesday Hodgepodge, and since I got married in 1984, and since I'm attending a wedding this weekend, it only seems right to post something related here.
"Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance. If the dispositions of the parties are ever so well known to each other or ever so similar beforehand, it does not advance their felicity in the least. They always continue to grow sufficiently unlike afterwards to have their share of vexation; and it is better to know as little as possible of the defects of the person with whom you are to pass your life." Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
Agree or Disagree? Why
(NOTE: These are questions from Joyce - the awesome Moderator of Hodgepodge... I did NOT get married in 1984.. I was still in middle school then... way harder then marriage)
All I will say to that is... I now see why I dont read Jane Austen
...I'm so confused...
3. Do you like to dance? Have you ever taken dance lessons?
Um... I LIVE to dance...
I dance in my car
I dance at my desk
I dance standing waiting for my tea to brew
I dance while brushing my teeth
I dance even while I run
No dance lessons needed... it was instilled in my DNA by the Dance Spirits of the universe
You cant be grumpy or in a bad mood when you're dancing
4. Fresh from the oven peach pie or homemade peach ice cream. Pick one.
I dont think you can ever go wrong with the anwer of "pie" ... ever...
5. Should people accept unfairness and learn to make the best of it?
I always say... like daily... "Life aint fair"
I dont think anyone can ever say that life is fair in everything....
so if you dont learn to accept it, life is going to be even more full of gloom & pouts
Suck it up
Rub some dirt in it
Shake it off
Get over it
....All those fun sayings... the same as saying "make the best of it"
6. The top five all time summer blockbuster movies (released between May and August and grossing at least 100 million dollars) are Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star Wars (the original), Ghostbusters, and E.T. Which one's your favorite?
Beauty & the Beast isnt in this? .... SO UNFAIR!!!! (like how I tied that back to the last question? I'm witty like that)
Well - I've never seen Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, or Ghostbusters... its true...
I think I saw E.T. once when I was young, but was so disturbed by it (he DIED!!! & then came back & then LEFT!!!!.. Emotional stuff messes me up)
I guess I'll say Star Wars... I'm not a Star Wars junkie... but I did have a Princess Leia doll. Always wanted my hair in those "cinnamon rolls" on the side of my head... & loved when I'd visit my cousin (who is a boy) & get to check out all his Star Wars action figures. Wonder if he still has those... they'd be worth some money.
7. If given the chance, would you like to visit the moon?
I would have panic attacks flying to Texas to see beautiful grandbabies... why would I WANT to fly to someplace that has no oxygen to see nothing but dust? ... No thank you...
8. Insert your own random thought here.
We got some beautiful tomatoes in our co-op basket last week.
I went to make grilled cheese last night & asked the Hubs if he wanted me to put a tomato slice on it when I grilled it... he was like "ewwwwww"...
I assured him it was great... "ewwwwww" was still the response.
I go to cut the tomato though & he sees how good & red & fresh it looks. "Go ahead - let me try it" ...
He ate it & said it was the best grilled cheese he's ever had...
& woke up this morning & said, "I'm craving another grilled cheese with tomato"
Score one for me in the invisible, score keeping things we mark up in marriage
(Is that what the quote from Jane Austen meant in question #2? ... I'm still lost)
