Hodgepodge Time

1. It was decided on Sunday the Denver Broncos will meet the Seattle Seahawks in this year's Superbowl.  So, when was the last time you bowled?  Not where you thought this question was going is it? Do you like to bowl? Are you any good?

I was excellent... at nearly breaking the score of 100!  If I made a score over 100, I felt like the King Pin Champion!!!

I can't bowl anymore with my bicep tendonitis.  If I knew how to bowl left handed instead, I could do it... but I suspect I would throw the ball in someone else's lane.

2. Should sports stars be role models?

Why not.... there are a LOT worse role models out there.

In my world, every sport star that was on Dancing with the Stars should DEFINITELY be a role model! :)  Shawn Johnson... Kristi Yamaguchi... Jerry Rice... Emmett Smith!

Shawn Johnson has taught me this dance move... role model material right here folks!

Well... maybe all the sport stars from DWTS...
Meta World peace? 

No... just no....

3. January is National Oatmeal month...are you a fan?  How do you like your oats?

I do like them... but I'm picky.  Being weird about ingredients, I don't like the ones with tons of nasty stuff in it.  Just give me plain oats.  Panaera makes EXCELLENT steel cut oatmeal with strawberries or apples. 

Ricky also makes excellent oatmeal...

But since I like the 'real stuff' it takes so long to make. Its usually a weekend only thing. 

On the week days?  This is how I feel...

4. What is one book on your reading list for 2014?

I posted recently a list of books to read before the movies come out.  I uploaded like half of them.  The one I'm starting on today?

I saw Ben Affleck is in the movie... so I'll have to see it.
I heard so much about it anyways.

So yeah, its been out for how long now?  & its on my 2014 list?  So I'm a little behind.

5. What would you like your future self to say to your present self?

"You're still alive"

6.  When scrolling through the TV guide, what is one movie title that makes you want to stop, grab the popcorn, and watch for a while?

Anything by John Hughes

7. What are two style trends you hope never come back into fashion?

1. Watching Pretty in Pink this weekend, one stood out... Bolo Neck Ties

Duckie was STYLIN' in the 80's

Yes... it was a thing... & yes, I'm embarrassed to say I wore them.  They made girl-y ones with rhinestones & jewels on them.  I have pictures of myself in them. Must destroy all evidence

2.  Pleated jeans... with high waists... How were these considered cool?  They were though.  I have evidence of wearing these as well.

Rockin' the mom jeans

I was a fashion stud

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Send Harvey some good thoughts.

I'm taking him Friday to be neutered.

I'm a nervous wreck about it too.

I hear for boys, its so much easier. I know for my girls, it was awful - their bellies cut open & the stitches. 

But I hate I'm the one who has to drop him off & leave him...

I'll be edgy & nervous Friday... lock up all the chocolate.


  1. I think I'm in the minority, but I didn't love Gone Girl. I liked it until about the mid-way point, and I did have to finish it to see how it ended, so I guess that's something. When I was finished I thought it would make a better movie than book. Ha-I should be in Hollywood : )

  2. where in the world to you get your clips??? They crack me up!
    Just to make you feel better: I've never even heard of Gone Girl, so you're more up on things than I am!

  3. omg that high wasted jeans SNL skit is one of my favorites... and yes, can't believe those types of jeans are actually made. crazy.

  4. You could do the little kid bowling with the rack you aim.

  5. Gone Girl is on my reading list, too. I had no idea it has been turned into a movie. Happy Wednesday!

  6. Love Sixteen Candles and you sure picked a great scene :)
    Hope all goes smoothly with your doggy's procedure.

  7. Being on my bowling league for around 20 years I have many days where I'm happy I made it to 100!
    I do agree, John Hughes made the best movies. I will keep him in my prayers. I always worried when I took my dogs.....((HUGS))

  8. Stopping by from HP and got the biggest kick out of your clips, especially the high waisted jeans. Oh, my, forbid that they should ever come back!!!! Enjoyed the visit!

  9. I love Panera's steel cut oats! We always have breakfast at Panera when we travel. Yum!

  10. Ugh....I'm blind! I'm blind! I had totally managed to block pleated "mom" jeans from my memory till you shared that picture.

    And as a Pittsburgh Steeler's fan (If you cut me, do I not bleed black and gold) I have to point out that your DWTS list of athlete/role models is missing Hines Ward!

  11. Awww...poor Harvey! If it makes you feel any better, Gambit did okay. He took a couple of days to pee properly, but he got his mojo back.

  12. I had some oatmeal today! I feel so festive about it now! :P

  13. Okay, you're scaring me now. Our little Lucy is scheduled in February to go for her surgery. Our last 2 were done before we got them and I can't remember how it was with the one before that.

    Oh man, now I'm really dreading it. How in the world do you keep them from jumping all over the place?

    Hope all goes well with Harvey.

  14. i once had a john hughes party--i LOVE all those movies and will watch them at any given chance they're on tv.
