If you're Party Hopping, WELCOME!  Stay a while and see what's going on!  My UBP Post is here.

It's Wednesday, so it's time for another:

1. How do you feel about "Gladiator" sandals, also called "Roman" or "Jesus" sandals? A fashion yea or nay?
   If you're young and skinny, go for it.  If you're not...fashion faux pas!  So, no, I don't have any in my closet.
2. What is your favorite pizza?
     I love pizza with mushrooms on it.  It could be cheese & mushroom, pepperoni & mushroom...it doesn't matter as long as there are no anchovies!
3. There are plans in the works to sell roughly 1,000 items from Star Trek: The Experience in Las Vegas. This means you could buy Picard's chair for your family room. If not a Star Trek item, what prop, background, set, etc. from what TV or movie would you buy if you could?
[Ex: Hurley's "I Love my Shih tzu" shirt from LOST, the plantation home "Tara" from Gone With the Wind, or Tracy's tambourine from the Partridge Family.]
   How about Jethro from NCIS?  Can't have him?  What about the car that he drives...or his coffee cup...or anything! 
4. Name a local food or restaurant that your area is famous for.
  I don't know that this area is famous for this, but this is a well known place in town:
                                              Photo taken by Justin H. of Melrose, Ma.
    It's not really a restaurant, but more of a go in, get your fresh donuts, and leave kind  of place.  It's called "Richy Kreme" and it's been around for over 60 years.  They bake fresh donuts several times during the day.  The only other donut I've  had that beats it is Thomas' Donuts in Laguna Beach, Fl. 
5. What is your current favorite snack?
6. Hypothetical: You are required to be a reality show contestant. Which show would you choose based on your probability of success? (You cannot choose "none.")
A. Dancing with the Stars
B. Biggest Loser
C. Survivor

Seriously, I can't choose "none"?  What about "The Amazing Race?"  I can't dance, I am overweight but not heavy enough to be on the Biggest Loser, and my idea of roughing it is staying at a hotel without cable.  I think I could do Amazing Race...travel around the world...yeah, I could do it!
7. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being uninhabitable and 10 being cleanliness that meets the standards of OCD, how clean is your vehicle's interior?
  Good thing you asked this week!  I would say a 7.
8. It doesn't feel like Spring until _________.
The dogwoods are blooming and we can sleep  with the windows open.
9. Something that made you laugh really hard recently is ____.
 This story about a boy who was at home alone.  He called his mom and told him that he had a troll in his closet.  Mom said she'd be home in a couple of hours.  When she got home, there was a trunk against the closet; when she opened it, she found a US Census Worker.  Turns out it's an urban myth, but I sure did laugh!
10. Tell me about a goal you're working toward.
Making it to May 21....last day of school
11. Share a thought-provoking or inspiring quote this week.
  This is on a wall at Carlsberg Brewery in Copenhagen, Denmark:
   Oh, wait...that's not what you had in mind?  This quote means a lot to me:
"By the choices we make, by the attitude we exhibit, we are influencing lives every day in positive or negative ways...our family, our peers, our friends, and even strangers we've never met before and will never meet again." (unknown)
12. Name one thing that you do as a parent that you absolutely know will make your kids happy. If you're not a parent, feel free to substitute "friend" or nomenclature that works for you.
I'm a parent, and I'm suppose to find something that makes my kids happy?  How about leaving them alone?  
I just asked my 15 year old (who is not happy with me right now) to tell me something that I do that makes him happy...he said nothing and went downstairs.  Does that tell you anything?

  1. I loved these....I knew we were soulmates...my idea of roughing it...is Motel 6...and even there Tom Bodet leaves the light on for you. I love Jethro on NCIS...car, cup, anything would be awesome. If I don't watch tv all week...I am going to watch the Amazing Race. Happy Weds.

  2. LOL Teenagers @@
    I love your answer to #3..YUM! Jethro is divine :)
    Have a great day!

  3. You crack me up. We're so similar-- Amazing Race and counting the days until school is out. On the other hand, Anchovy pizza used to be my favorite when I was a kid!

  4. Loved reading your answers. Oh yes...anything from Jethro. Good quote. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

  5. oooo Richy Kreme! I drove by it when we were in town over Easter but they were closed :-(

    I love you answer to #12. That would be the response I would get from my almost 10 year old son. My 7 year old still loves almost everything I do.

  6. Thank you for giving me my daily dose of laughter with your 15 year old's comment...I remember those days so well...I also remember counting down the days of school when I was a parapro...The last month is the worst! LOL

  7. I love Richey Creme Do-nuts too!!

  8. Lol, not so sure about Jethro, does the man ever crack a smile? I suppose he is very brooding and rugged :D

    I enjoyed your answers and laughed at the Calsberg brewery quote.

  9. Love your answers. Be happy your not heavy enough for Biggest Loser. I couldn't pick any of those either with my asthma! Enjoy the rest of your week.

  10. I love your #12. Sounds like my house except mine are girls and I'd get the same answer!!!

  11. I so get wanting to be on the amazing race!!! I could hang through it all until they got to the eat that funky meat section - ugh!!! And who thought what do you like to snack on answer would be anything other than chocolate!!!

  12. I really enjoyed your answers and thought you were talking about my house for a second when I read #12 :)

  13. Oh Mary, I thought the same thing about my Mom when I was 15, and today she's one of my best friends! If you would have told me back then that we would be such great friends, I would have thought you were crazy! She's a blessing and always has been, I just didn't always realize it!

  14. Ouch on your son's comment. Yum on the doughnuts! :)

    You will love that recipe, BTW! Let me know if you make it :)

  15. I am so there with #3!! Teenagers, so much fun...NOT!! HA!!

  16. Enjoyed your answers. Thanks for sharing.

    until next time...nel

  17. Oh my gosh...I was laughing at some of your answers!

    Amazing Race would totally be my game. I want to go on it with my sister. She'd be praying as I'd do the navigating.

    And, according to my 15 (soon to be 16) year old son, his life sucks.

    Cry me a river...

  18. I don't know how Linda does it, either, but I'm glad she does! I enjoyed reading your answers!
