(Click on the button above & join in with the questions supplied by Joyce)

1. In an effort to combat obesity, the mayor of NYC has plans to ban the sale of large sugary drinks (anything over 16 oz.), initially in restaurants, movie theatres, and street carts. Corner stores would also be affected if they are defined as food service establishments. You can read more here. Your thoughts?
I love this idea... I think its CRAZY the size of soft drinks anymore.  These bucket cups, with a tiny little base so they can fit in your car.  Only to have the weight of the top, tip over when you take a curb & spill all in your floor board...
Think I've had experience in it?
The Mayor is just looking out for your car interior...
If this happened to my area when I was addicted to Diet Coke?  I'd totally lay in the floor like a 2 yr old & have a tantrum...

2. Art festival, music festival, food festival...which would you most like to attend?
Art Festival... they usually have the best (worst) kind of food there anyways - Its a 2-for-1 answer!
But I love to see what others consider 'art' ... some of it, I dig... other stuff, I'm like, "are you kidding me?  My 4 yr old grandson can do that" ... & then see they're selling it for $500 a pop...  all in the name of art

3. What are you irrational about?

Irrational:  lacking in reason or logic... unable to think clearly ... without normal mental clarity or sound judgement
 I think that just definited our government right now...

My irrational thinking?  When I feel sick & get on Google... & find I have every stupid thing that will kill me in a few years... if not a few days... I get so upset like, "could it be true?"...

... dont laugh.. you've done it too...right?   (I'm looking at you, my sister in law!!) haha!

4. Do you feel confident you'll have a comfortable retirement?

I hope I MAKE it to retirement? Did you just see my last answer?   I'm hoping not to die before next year! :)

5. What's been your favorite Olympic moment so far?
(Not ever, just in the 2012 Summer games.)
Beach Volleyball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Hubs & I have caught the games & have hooted & hollered like we were playing on the team.  No joke - the dogs have ran like we're yelling at them!
Finals for the women tonight... USA vs USA!!! This is going to be fun ... I'm partial to Misty May Traynor because she was on Dancing with the Stars... Ricky likes the other team because of the tall blond player... we'll have a battle in our house tonight...

6. What would you label as the messiest room in your house?

HA... chuckling... giggling... HAAAAHHAAAAA

My house is in serious discord right now...

but the "messiest"...
probably my library

This used to be the room that was so organized...
But when I started with photography, I ended up throwing all my props & lighting equipment in there.. & now?  Its chaos!!!!  Anyone want to do a makeover on my house & help with organizing?

7. Do you follow your heart or your head?

I'm usually a "heart follower" .... I think it was growing up with my mom having Wizard of oz on a loop.... The Tinman influenced me...

My husband, very much a "head follower" .... so we balance each other out

I think there's a book in this idea...I'll call it "Tinman & Scarecrow"

...Told you my mom influenced us with Wizard of Oz

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I dont get all the excitement over this Mars thing...

So we know more about a planet that we'll never go to... Whooo Hooo!!!

Wouldnt that money have helped out country with unemployment & health insurance costs? ....mmmm....

I'm no politician, but I'm also not stupid....

Wait... did I just think with my head?  Woooooowwwww!!!!


  1. The Beach Volleyball has been fun to watch. We're rooting for Misty and hubs finds the girl with the cold feet a little annoying : )

  2. The messiest room in this house is the only messy room, and it's the office. My husband is Mr. Clean, but he is not Mr. Organized. My desk at school, totally different!

  3. I'm looking forward to tonight's volleyball match (DH will have to go to the sewing room to watch the baseball game - ha!).

  4. Yep, we caught you thinking! How was that head-rush?
    I didn't even know about the Mars landing until everyone started to blog about it the next day. Yes, I get my news from Mommy-Bloggers.
    Although I don't drink soda and we hardly ever buy it, I don't think it's the Gov't job to ban it. If people want to weight 10billion pounds, go for it. The good thing is, they make me look skinny. And I'm all for that!

  5. Thank you for the Mars comment. Why do we even care what Mars is like? Its not like we can live there.

  6. Love the beach volley ball. I haven't caught very much of it, but love what I've seen. USA vs USA ought to be good.

  7. Ha! You killed me with #4..."hoping not to die before next year!"


  8. Haha! Of course they're looking out for the interior of your car! lol!

    =O Someone thought with her head!

  9. OMW, so with you on the whole Mars rover thing! I ask myself the same question, what is so important on Mars that can't wait till we've fixed our problems here on earth?!

    My daughter says she's afraid of looking up symptoms on the internet and finding out she's got a brain tumor or something. We can easily misdiagnose ourselves and think we're on death's door.

    I loved your answers! Have a blessed rest of your week.

  10. I hate those "abyss Boy" cups! Not only are they hard to keep straight in the car, but those cups are wider than my hands! It's worse when "any size is a dollar" because I order a medium and they STILL try to give me the giant size.

  11. Love the ER cartoon!! Ha ha ha!!

    Totally agree with you on the Mars thing. The first thing I thought of was how many starving people could that money have fed? How many books and pieces of classroom material could we have bought for poor school districts.

    Our nation's priorities are way messed up.
