Wednesday Hodgpodge - Vol 62


1. A new Miss America was crowned on Saturday night-did you watch? If you were a contestant what wouldyour talent be?
No, I don't watch too much TV (other than hockey games).  I don't even have a desire to be a contestant.  If Miss America would put on hockey gear and check into the other contestants….. then I think I'd watch.  LOL


2. Do you have houseplants? Real or fake?
I have many houseplants.  All real.  I love to garden and since I can't be outside in the winter, I bring a little bit of the outdoors…indoors.  


3. When you were in school did you speak up or were you more of the hide your face, avoid eye contact, and pray the teacher didn't call on you type of student?
It really depends upon which class.  I loved English, History and Algebra.  I did well in those classes.  The other classes I didn't so well in, those are the ones I was too embarrassed to utter anything.


4. Next Monday marks the Chinese New Year...what do you order when someone suggests Chinese food?
We were just at PF Changs Friday night.  I ordered Spring Rolls and Lo Mein with vegetables.  I'm not a huge meat eater and I tend to order veggie dinners we we go out to eat.


5. How would you define a miracle? What would it take for you to consider something a miracle?
The first thing that comes to mind is the movie "Miracle on Ice".  It's a hockey movie (of course) about the 1980 team who won the Olympics against the Russians.  What made this a miracle was the USA team was a hodgepodge of players, who were not professional

s playing against an elite team who played professional and probably most of their lives.  


6. What's your favorite Disney song? If you're stuck you'll find a list here.
Nothing came to mind when I first read this question.  After looking at the list, I will probably be singing a whole bunch of those songs all day.  Thanks a lot Joyce!  ;-)


7. I should have _____________ yesterday.
relaxed more.  I tend to overdo it and not take time for myself.  


8. Insert your own random thought here.
Zip A Dee Do Dah, Zip A Dee Day, My OH my, what a wonderful day!

  3. I always love these Hodgepodge posts. I chuckled about beauty contestants wearing HOCKEY equipment. Would be a new LOOK for them, wouldn't it? My random thought for the day.... Isn't Skype cool?

    1. Hockey equipment can be real smelly, so I don't see them getting any where close to putting it on! Haha!

  4. I liked the movie Miracle on Ice as well. I enjoy rooting for the underdog, in any case.
    You'll have lots of company singing the Disney songs today, I'm sure!

  7. Miracle on Ice! Very special here as Jim Craig was a local boy for us. We are a huge hockey family. My husband went to Russia as a trainer for an all star team that skated against the Russian Red Army team. Thanks for bringing up the memory of that very special time :)

  10. The movie and the event are both special! The movie helps us reorganize the scattered, in the back of our mind memories of that day. I remember it well even though I wasn't (don't hurt me Tami!) a hockey fan then.

  11. I'm so glad I didn't look at that list of songs. I'd be driving myself nuts by now if I had ;) Of course, I do now have a taste for Chinese food...specifically the crispy beef they have at PF Changs - or did the last time I was tehre probably six years ago. Yum.
