Wednesday Hodgepodge

Another Wednesday, another Hodgepodge!  I'm not sure how Joyce does it, but she's come up with more original questions!

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?
Crazy.  If people don't want to drink them, then they won't drink them.  But, they shouldn't be denied the right to drink it if they want it.  We've all been educated about the effects; we should have that choice.

2. Art festival, music festival, food festival...which would you most like to attend?
Music.  As long as it's inside (in the air conditioning) and not too crazy.

3. What are you irrational about?
Oh, I'm irrational about a lot of things, especially right now.  (Can you say "hormonal"?)  I tend to fly off the handle about some things, and can't seem to let some things go!

4. Do you feel confident you'll have a comfortable retirement?
I'm confident that CH will make sure we have a comfortable retirement.  I just hope I'm still young enough to enjoy it!

5. What's been your favorite Olympic moment so far?
(Not ever, just in the 2012 Summer games)
Beach Volleyball.  Aren't Kerri & Misty just amazing?? Here's hoping they can win gold this one last time before Misty retires.
USA!  USA!   

6. What would you label as the messiest room in your house?
Right now, everything is pretty messy.  It's been a busy week, which equals a messy house!

7. Do you follow your heart or your head?
My heart.  I don't like to think too much!

8. Insert your own random thought here.
YS' school had open house last night.  His drum major uniform came in, so we got to see it.  We also met with the German teacher and got additional information about our trip next summer. I.Can.Not.Wait!


  1. We liked watching the beach volley ball too :) Happy Wednesday!

  2. The beach volleyball has been fun to watch-USA vs. USA-exciting! We're staying up way too late too many nights in a row but I'll be a little bit sorry to see the games end.

  3. I'm with you on the sugary drinks ban! So stupid! How does it help? It seems to me that someone who wants more than 16 oz is still going to buy 2 drinks... Wouldn't you be better off to have them drinking 20 oz instead of 32 oz? We are not going to legislate obesity away. People have to come to the point where they are ready and willing to give that up themselves.

    Okay, I'll take a deep breath and stop ranting now. It's just that I find this particular thing so annoying!

  4. I'm looking forward to the beach volleyball tonight ... DH will just have to go to the sewing room to watch the baseball game. ha!

  5. I enjoyed your answers, and I agree with #1 one hundred percent.

    I saw part of one of the beach volleyball games, those girls can really play!

  6. I'm rooting for Kerri and Misty too! Don't know if I'll get to see the match tonight or not. Hope so.

  7. Same here with #3! I tend to make a big deal out of the little things.
    Agreed! People shouldn't tell others what to drink or not to drink etc. It sounds like a good idea but its not going to help, they'd just go to a fast food place and buy their drinks there.

  8. Popped in from the Hodgepodge ~ your upcoming trip sounds exciting!

  9. How exciting the senior year is! And how great to have a trip to go on before heading off to college! DoodleBug is entering her senior year too. Only it's college so she's facing the real world. LOL I remember her senior year in high school- and she was a band geek too. She still keeps up with her high school band and the friends she made while there. Band friends are of the lasting sort!

  10. LOL to #7, and congrats to YS!! I know you are such a proud mama!!

  11. The Olympics is a terrible time to not have a cable or satellite subscription. I've missed watching it soo badly. It sounds like you have something exciting on the horizon for next summer. Yay!! I'll be looking forward to living vicariously through you once again!
