Et tu, Hodgepodge?

1. William Shakespeare's birthday is celebrated on April 23rd...when did you last read Shakespeare? What's your favorite Shakespeare play?

I probably last read Shakespeare in high school, so that was more than 30 years ago. I'm not a big fan, and I can't say I have a favorite of his plays.

2. What food(s) would you recommend a foreign visitor try when they visit your home country?

Tex-Mex, of course!

3. What's a lie you often tell yourself?

I'm going to go to bed early.

4. What's something you're good at that might surprise us? Remember this is a family friendly blog!

I honestly can't think of anything. That is, I can think of things I'm good at, but I don't think you'd be particularly surprised.

5. Who is your favorite animal character from a book?

Winnie the Pooh. This one was easy!

6. April showers bring May you have a green thumb?

Only if I get green ink on it.

7. Speaking of rainy days...which one of the following activities would you most want to spend time doing on a rainy day-

sort photos and create albums
bake cookies
read a good book
hold an all-day movie marathon
organize closets, cupboards, or bookshelves
try a new recipe
fix something that needs fixing

Read a book! (See #4 about the surprise factor!)

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Be sure to scroll down to yesterday's post and enter for a chance to win one of two copies of Christy Award finalist Ginny Yttrup's phenomenal debut novel Words. It's the novel she didn't want to write and I didn't want to read. . . .and it's absolutely incredible!

Oh, how I love Tex-Mex! I never seem to make it to bed when I intend to, either. I sure pay for it the next morning!

LynnMarie said...

OK you will have to explain Tex-Mex to this New Englander!!

sara said...

my thumb is about as green as yours!!! :)

Marti said...

I do love Tex-Mex, mexican, or anything that speaks of south of the border. Have a great day.

Joyce said...

Tex Mex is a good choice because in my experience unless the visitor is coming from south of the border most countries don't do Mexican food well.

I entered the book drawing!

Enjoyed your answers. I may take a nap here after while, I was up till 3:30 reading, then the phone rang at 8:30 this morning so I am kind of dragging.
until next time... nel

AuburnChick said...

Yeah, I'm in agreement with you on #3. I have such good intentions but just cannot make myself go to bed before 11 or 11:30. Sigh...

Cathy said...

I knew you would say reading a book. And speaking of books...I read that book "Words". That was spool good.
