Wednesday Hodgepodge #99

This week is the last double-digit Wednesday Hodgepodge, number 99! What fun! Next week the odometer turns over to 100!

1. So, do you like beer?

(This question isn't as random as it seems; Joyce said 99 always makes her think of the old singing-on-the-bus song "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall" which they adapted to "pop" on church outings! LOL)

I've never tasted "real" beer (I had some non-alcoholic beer in Germany this summer), but judging by the fact that I hate the way it smells, I think it's safe to say that I would not like it.

2. What's your least favorite repetitive task?

Glad I read it twice--I skipped over the word least the first time!

Putting on make-up, doing my hair--the whole morning routine. And the night one, too. Makes me weary! LOL

3. When was the last time you rode a bus? Where was it headed?

School field trips, but I couldn't tell you which one was the last one.

4. What song from your childhood or from your own children's childhood could make a parent's nerves stand on end?

It's a Small World After All. And I never hated that one until I went to Disney World!

(My mom would have answered I Love to Laugh from Mary Poppins. She hated that song! From my children's childhood, most people would probably say Barney's "I Love You, You Love Me" song, but it never bothered me that much. Children's songs are supposed to be simplistic.)

5. The US Presidential election cycle is drawing to a close (can I get an AMEN??), and the third and final debate was held last night...what was the last thing you 'debated about'?

Probably some grammar rule. LOL Or something in Sunday morning Bible Study. But I prefer to say I discuss rather than debate. :-)

6. Can a person make too much money? How much is too much?

Yes. Whatever amount makes the person focus on the money and live with a closed fist instead of open-handed generosity towards those around them.

7. Pop-soda-coke-something else...what's it called where you live?

Growing up, we always called the general thing "soda pop". Eventually we started calling them "canned drinks" because yes, I'm old enough that I remember when those came out and it was a distinction to get those instead of the bottles! Most of the time we just call it what it is--Dr Pepper, etc., sometimes soda, sometimes drinks. I never call it coke because I've always been a DP girl.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Be sure you check out those great giveaways over on the right at the top of my sidebar!

Come on over to Joyce's blog and join the fun!

Great list! (And thanks for introducing me to this meme, it's great fun!) And #4 never bothered me until my friends at school came back from Disney world singing it nonstop! A fellow DP lover here! There best soda there is! (in my humble opinion. :D)
