Windy Wednesday Hodgepodge

How impressive is this?  Joyce had the whereabouts to make sure she didn't let us down this week.  Hurricane and all, she managed to make sure we had some questions to answer before Sandy hit.

1. What creeps you out?
Cats.  Seriously.  Sure, they're all cute when they're babies, but their eyes really creep me out.

2. What's your least favorite candy?
Circus peanuts.  They give me a headache.

3. Are you a fan of scary movies?  What's the scariest movie you've ever seen?
I abhor scary movies.  I don't even have to see the movie to be scared of it...if someone just tells me about it, I'll get myself worked up.  I watched "The Ring" a few years ago because I was stupid enough to volunteer to chaperone for something at the middle school.  Not a good thing for me at all.
YS & I were talking about scary movies a couple of days ago, and I told him that when I was in college, my roomie & I watched "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" at the student center.  I made her sleep with a light on for weeks!

4. What part of life confuses you the most?
What part doesn't?

5. Pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, poppy...what's your favorite seed?
To eat?  Sunflower.

6. Imagine your life ten years from today...what's changed?
Oh, wow.  The kids are all out of college and living their own lives, I more than likely have grandkids, and hopefully will be looking forward to retirement in a couple of years.

7.  What do you a) love the most and b) like the least about the Hodgepodge? 
I love reading everybody's responses.  Sometimes the questions are a little too thought provoking!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Well, yesterday didn't start out much better than Monday.  No upchucking kids, but I did manage to do something I've never done before in my life:  lock my keys in the car.  I got to school, opened the back door, locked the door, put the keys in my pocketbook, set it down on the seat, and looked for a water bottle that had fallen.  I didn't see it on the driver's side, so I shut the door to walk around and check the passenger's side.  As soon as I shut it and saw the lights blink, I thought, "I did NOT do what I think I just did."  But yes, I did.  I called CH, and he drove the 20 minutes to unlock my door.  Luckily I didn't have any students until 8:30, because everything was in my car.  I could've winged it, I guess, but I hate doing that!  CH is my hero!


  1. I detest circus peanuts! They're nothing more than a sugary blob, in my opinion. BLECH! I'm very allergic to cats...not a fan of them, either! I'm definitely looking forward to grandkids, too! Happy Halloween!

  2. I am glad you are looking forward to grandchildren. They are the loves of my life. Retirement is great too.

  3. Oh yay! Finally I don't feel so alone in not liking cats at all.

  4. I beg to differ little sister. Remember Myrtle Beach many many years ago and you had to find me to help you get into your car! Love you!

  5. I forgot about circus peanuts. Yuck!

    I have to agree with you on #4 ... and #6 (although I remind myself that a little extra thinking is a good way to keep my mind sharp - ha!). ;-)

    Hope today is a better day!

  6. Sorry to hear about your keys. That is always my biggest fear since I work an hour away from home. I dread ever having to make that call to Frank. Loved your answers...and I detest cats as well. They are creepy....they have creepy attitudes....and I am deathly allergic to them. When I was younger they would send me into asthmatic hell.

  7. I didn't think of circus peanuts, but I really hate them! They might even qualify as an answer to what creeps me out!

  8. Do they even make circus peanuts anymore? Gosh that was pure sugar.

  9. Re: Pam's comment: Technically, it wasn't MY keys that were locked in MY was my friend's keys & her car! :)

  10. Is that like a candy coated peanut or just a peanut in the shell from the circus? Yes the questions can be thought provoking at times, makes you think really hard. Gee, didn't we have that question recently about looking ourselves out? Happy Halloween!

  11. Do they even still make circus peanuts? They are so gross! LOL. Visiting from the Hodgepodge hop!


  12. I hate circus peanuts too. I forgot about them.

  13. I don't like scary movies either, especially when they're based on a true story, ie, "In Cold Blood" - I wish I'd never seen that old movie! I do like suspense movies, but nothing with gore or violence. I'm a wuss!

  14. Ewwwww, ya. I agree whole-heartedly on those circus peanuts. Not that they cause me headaches, but the taste. Ewwwww.

  15. I'm allergic to cats. Haven't had a circus peanut in ages, not sure I remember what they taste like.

    I'm trying to catch up a your rant. Amen to the very heavy heart.
