Fall Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. What's one thing that's still the same about you as when you were young?
I'm still not a big vegetable eater.

2. What's more important-history or science? Why?
I started to answer one way, but then found reasons to answer another!  So...I have no idea.  That's my final answer.

3. Lima, kidney, string, garbanzo, black or pinto-your favorite bean?
Love me some pinto beans & cornbread!  What Southern girl doesn't?

4. What's something people come to your town to do?
The Small Town has "Freedomfest" the Saturday before the 4th of July.  It wasn't held for a few years because of budget cuts, but it started back up this summer.

5. When was the last time you were in a meeting? Sum it up for us in five words or less. 
This morning.  16 meetings in 16 days.

6. What special event would you like a VIP pass to attend?
I would LOVE to go back to Wimbledon during Wimbledon.  Or, the US Open.

7. What's one piece of advice you'd give a writer?
Know the difference between 'it's' and 'its' and 'there', 'their', and 'they're'.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Did anybody watch "Hostages" Monday night?  I caught it last night On Demand.  It looks pretty good.  I don't know how I feel about Dylan McDermott playing a bad guy, though.


  1. Oh, I'm with you on the cornbread and pinto beans! In fact, I just might have to make that for dinner tonight! Great answer to #7...nothing drives me crazier! Of course, I do sometimes still make mistakes with it's and its because I often get in such a hurry. If I catch it, I go back and correct my oversight.

  2. Dylan can play a bad guy or good guy - that's alright with me! He's easy on the eyes!

  3. Love pinto beans-same as my answer-so right what Southern gal doesn't?
    Meetings-here lately, that is all I have been doing, also!

  4. Pinto beans and cornbread (with butter and honey, right?) sounds pretty awesome to me! ;-)

  5. I watched the Blacklist which is interesting. I'll be checking out Hostages On-Demand soon. Your advice to writers is spot on as well. Nice blog!

  6. Good advice for a writer - Know your Grammar.

  7. I LOVE small town festivals. They are just the best :) Growing up my town had one and everyone gathered for it. Such fun memories! Happy Wednesday!

  8. I am so with you on the pinto beans. I would be delighted to just have them for dinner and nothing else....well I would need some cornbread.

  9. I didn't watch "Hostages" but have seen the TV ads for it. I have trouble seeing Dylan McDermott as a bad guy, too. It's probably more fun to be the bad guys, don't you think?

  10. I missed it!!! I need to watch it! I saw an interview with Dylan & he said it was fun to be the bad guy for once & not the guy who saves Santa :)

  11. Great advice to writers! I'm a bit of a grammar nazi too and it bugs me no end when people can't tell the difference between its and it's, or they're and their. If they know they're spelled differently, why do they ALWAYS use the wrong spelling??!

  12. I'm not sure how I would feel about Dylan McDermott being a bad guy either...I'm going to have to check this show out! I love veggies so much. Phew...that's a lot of meetings!!!

  13. #7-Ha! Agreed : ) Funny how many small town festivals are mentioned in the HP today. Part of what makes America special I think.

  14. 16 meeting in 16 days, that's a lot! Those events would both be fun to attend. I'm not a huge fan of tennis but take me back to London please. I taped Hostages but haven't had a chance to watch yet.
