Hodgepodge - Volume 87

*Click the button above to join... & please note, the questions are not written by me - but by the wonderful host of Hodgepodge...

1. I'm joining my daughter1 in the 101 in 1001 challenge. Essentially you create a list of 101 things you want to accomplish or do in the next 1001 days. What's one thing you'd put on your list?

Catch up on my laundry... my pile is almost as tall as I am...
....I so wish I was joking...

2.   How many remote controls do you have in your house? What's one item in your home you wish could be run by remote control?

I have no idea how many remotes we have... mainly because most of them are LOST.  I know my TV works on 2 remotes.  The one that works the power & sound.  The other that works the DVR box.

The TV downstairs that I use to workout with?  I have to control 3 different remotes - one for the TV, one for the sound & one for the DVD player.  Its a tad crazy...

What do I WISH ran by remote?  Emptying the Dishwasher... Where are the days of The Jetsons where everything was by remote???? Its 2012 people... I want these things to come to life!!!

3. What does having it all mean to you? Is it attainable?

I cant wrap my mind around the question... all I can think of is Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka..

4. What's your favorite movie soundtrack?

Fun fact - I am a movie soundtrack NUT!!! Evidence even shown from the previous question - the first thing that popped in my mind was a soundtrack song...

Here are just some that are in my car, as we speak (or type):

Moulin Rouge
My Best Friend's Wedding
Runaway Bride
Grease 2...COOL RIDER!!!!
Xanadu (of course!!!!)
I have about every Disney cartoon Soundtrack too...

& does Glee count?  I have all of those too :)

I think I even have a "Soundtrack" station on Pandora that I play sometimes :)  I know on my DVR, there is a music station with that... love it!

5. Describe the best view you've seen from a rooftop?

...I've never been on a roof in my life...

But a nice view?  I'm a simple gal - I love when we had a balcony in Gatlinburg & could sit out & watch all the hustle & bustle of the street ... & have the mountains right in sight...

Or even being IN the mountains in a cabin & sitting on the deck, in rockers, in the mountains...

Nothing as beautiful to me as mountains & trees & nature...

6. What's your least favorite thing about summer?

Sweaty bras

7.  Our weekly Hodgepodge lands on the first day of August. In ten words or less sum up your July.

I feel like I'm on Twitter- limiting my words... (That didnt count as my answer)

Miserably hot, celebrating birthdays, seeing grandbabies faces,

YEAH! Did it... 10 words!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

The Hubs & I have really enjoyed watching Beach Volleyball in the Olympics...

& Synchronized Diving...

Who knew these were fun sports to watch?

...when you're rooting for USA, anything is fun to watch...

& how did Michael Phelps loose by a few MILLISECONDS????!?!?!?  That's insane to me. ... the agony of defeat...


  1. I think that synch diving is underrated. That has got to be so difficult! I'm loving watching a lot of different events too.

    We got a universal remote for our big tv and had it programmed by Geek Squad. It was worth every single penny!

  2. GREASE 2!!! Love it. We would get together with another couple and watch the movie and she would act out all of the parts while singing. Some of the most fun I've ever had.

    I've also enjoyed the diving. I have no idea how they are so in tune with each other. But you can sure tell when they aren't also.

  3. Yes, I think we need to catch up with the Jetson..definitely time!!

    I haven't caught any of the diving yet, but I have seen some of the gymnastics and swimming.

    Have a great day.

  4. It might sound like a rather lame sport, but I have to confess that I'm amazed by the synch diving.

  5. The Jetsons, Veruca and Xanadu in one post? This was your best work ever!

  6. #6--Just this morning, I said to B, "I hate how hard it is to get my sports bra over my boobs after I exercise." Oh how that perspiration collects!

    Beauty and the Beast is playing here in Chicago through 8/26. When are you coming up?

  7. OH right! I love "Moulin Rouge" but forgot to put it in my answer. And, yes, sweaty bras are miserable. I agree!

  8. LOL @ sweaty bras! That should be the title of someone's blog or twitter handle. hahaha

  9. Sweaty bras made me snort! True true, hate em. Our answers to @qu.#2 were the same.
