Wednesday Hodgepodge


From this Side of the Pond

1. What do you find is the most boring part of your life at the moment? 

At the moment, nothing is boring!!  I am scheduling a trip for next week, trying to complete all my lesson plans before going, and I have THREE students to test and complete all the necessary paperwork that is required before next week.  Shew!!  Plus, I have been elected as co-vice president of a community activity and signed up for line dancing and I don't want to miss line dancing because I don't want to be behind on the routine BUT this trip has thrown a wrench in my days.

2. February 22nd is George Washington's birthday. You'll find his face on the US $1 bill. What's the last thing you bought for roughly $1.00? (.94 €/ .83 £)

I think it was last week, I bought a small (very small) bag of Doritos from the cafeteria because I had forgotten my lunch!

3. Is it ever okay to tell a 'little white lie'? Explain. 

Yes, if it is beneficial.  For example, if someone gives you a gift you don't really like, I would tell the person, first of all, thank you for the gift and I like it very much.  I wouldn't want to hurt that person's feelings.

4. What's the last thing you 'chopped'? Cherry pie, chocolate covered cherries, a bowl of cherries, cherry vanilla ice cream, maraschino cherries, a cherry lifesaver...your favorite cherry flavored something? 

 I DO NOT like any cherry flavored ANYTHING!!

5. Describe yourself with three words using your first, middle, and last initials. 

Tenderhearted (I watch Rudolph and cry)



6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Looking forward to my trip with the grandsons, but hate the 'stuff' that I need to do beforehand.  Because I live alone, I make sure someone watches my house (not that it is a big house but one never knows and I do set my alarm), checks my mail, call the bank to secure my credit card, make sure my mother has everything she needs while I am gone, PLUS making sure all paperwork for school is complete.

On a more positive thought, the temps are in the middle 70s today AND NO RAIN for a couple of days!!  WooHoo!!

Wednesday Hodgepodge

From this Side of the Pond

1. Pantone's color of the year for 2023 is Viva Magenta. Etsy's color(s) of the year are indigo and honeycomb. Your thoughts? Would we find any of these three shades in your home or wardrobe? Is there a room in your house that needs painting this year? Will you do it yourself or hire out? 

I like Viva Magenta.  I can vision myself buying/purchasing something in this color. I am thinking...but I have gray trim in one room of my house and painting the wall Viva magenta would look nice.  If I decide to paint, it will be me doing the painting!  Not many people I know who paints. 

Not really a fan of indigo or honeycomb.

2. Something you had to do recently that could be described 'as exciting as watching paint dry'? 

I can't think of anything boring that I have done recently.

3. Who would you most like to sit beside on a 10-hour flight? Tell us why? Have you ever taken a 10-hour flight? 

Peyton Manning!!  I love Tennessee Football and his nickname is "The Sheriff" so we have something in common because the principal at my school calls me "The New Sheriff in Town."  I just feel like he is a down to earth kinda guy that I could carry on a conversation with.

I have taken a 10 hr flight and it really didn't seem like 10 hours but that may be because I slept most of the way.

4. What's something you did growing up that would get you into trouble? 

Not completing my chores in a timely manner.  My mother always gave me a list of chores to have d ANDone before she returned home.  Maybe some of the chores were complete but not all AND I was in deep trouble. I hated hearing the words, "Grounding you hurts me more than it does you."  Yeah, right?

5. According to Google the top searches in 2022 were- Wordle, election results, Betty White, Queen Elizabeth, Bob Saget, Ukraine, Mega Millions, Powerball numbers, Anne Heche, and Jeffrey Dahmer. 

Hmmm...what does this say about us? How many of these words did you search last year? What would you guess was your most 'googled' word/phrase/question. 

I didn't search any of these searches.  I guess, I am content with knowing what I know before searching or these topics don't interest me.

I guess the most 'google' word/phrase/question would be Wordle.  I am constantly seeing posts about Wordle on FB.

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Flowers from my grandsons.  They painted the vase (help from their Mama) and each heart is one of their thumbprints.

The Basketball team had a game last week-Coaches for Cancer.  All money raised (concession stand, pass the bucket, half-half tickets, and half-court shoot out) all went to American Cancer Society.

A player and a coach were playing for my late hub.

Have a great rest of the Week and Enjoy Life!
