Mastering the Hodgepodge

1. My daughter earned her Master's Degree this past weekend...what's something you've 'mastered' in recent weeks or months?
I've mastered getting up at 5:30 to be at school on time.  

2. What song most reminds you of your childhood?
When I hear the song "Cecilia" by Simon & Garfunkle, I'm reminded of a trip to Tx., and of some of us singing it at the top of our lungs.  When I reflect on the lyrics now, I can't believe my mom & my aunt were okay with us singing it!

3. What do you think about single gender groups and/or events? Should everygroup/event be open to both genders?  If not, what sort of exceptions do you think are appropriate? 
People need to stop being so sensitive.  Who cares?

4. What's your favorite spice? Your favorite dish containing your favorite spice?
Garlic.  I don't have a favorite dish that it's in, though.

5.  I saw this question on Marla's facebook page and asked if I could steal borrow it for the Hodgepodge...thanks Marla!  

Chevron patterns are everywhere!  Do you like it or think its just a little too much? Do you own anything 'chevron'? 
It depends on where it is.  I have this little sign in my therapy rooms at school, courtesy of Crazy

6.  What's something you disliked as a child, but can fully appreciate now?

7. What can irritate you very quickly?
People insisting on stopping at the traffic circle.  Can't stand it!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
We had a nice surprise on Monday:  OS came by and spent the night.  This was a welcome sight in my driveway when I left for work on Tuesday:
He shared this clip with me (he's the 3rd one coming down):


  1. Neat video. That looks like fun, but I don't think I have the nerve to even think of trying something like that!

    Love your answer to #3.

  2. Looks like scary fun : )

    My girls loved to sing Gary Puckett's Young daughter mentioned to me recently how inappropriate the message actually was. I remember singing Cecilia loudly too...ya kinda had to!

  3. My favorite song was road-trip related as well. Singing on a road trip seems to make the miles go faster. At least I thought so. Not sure my parents agreed! :)

  4. love the last photo of OS car! Have a great start to the new school year, Mary!

  5. Loved your responses. What a neat surprise you had and loved the video of Tellico.

  6. LOL! People need to stop being so sensitive... I think you and I would get along great. ;)

  7. That is true! People are overly sensitive about those things, its like sheesh get over it! Anyway I actually always loved brocolli, brussel sprouts were my worst enemy, then it was corn bread. Wow 5:30 AM?! Not sure i could handle that. :)Hope you have a good week!

  8. Love the answer to number 1-we started back last week and students come tomorrow. Have a great school year.

  9. I don't have to be up at 5:30 but find myself up at that time often however there is a big difference when you have to be up at 5:30!!!
    I don't get to cook with fresh garlic because my husband can't stand it but I do use flakes in recipes. So glad you had a visit with OS and the video is awesome. That looks like fun!

  10. I think your answer "People need to stop being so sensitive" would answer a LOT of the worlds issues/problems :)

  11. love the answers :) hope you will follow me back
