1. The Hodgepodge falls on the last day of February this year, a leap year. How will you spend that extra day?
Pretty much like any other day, doing what needs to be done!
2. What has recently required a leap of faith on your part?
3. We're one week into the season of Lent...are you marking these 40 days in some way? Giving something up or adding something extra to normal life? How's it going so far?
Nope. I don't do Lent. Wasn't raised that way and I shy away from anything that will make me tend toward legalism. I disagree with the traditional practice of Lent, although I'm fine with how many of my Christian bloggy friends have chosen to acknowledge it, using it as a season to draw closer to God. I loved Chatty Kelly's recent blog post about it.
4. When was the last time you sat beside a fire?
Probably at a friend's house. I really don't remember.
5. Surf and Turf is on the menu. Do you order as is or do you ask for just the surf (lobster), just the turf (steak), or a menu so you can select another option?
I'll have a melt-in-your-mouth tender, medium-well filet mignon, please. I don't want to have to hack at my food or have its beady eyes staring at me (sightless or not), nor do I want to wear a bib.
6. If you could have any television program back, not in reruns but in new episodes, what program would you choose?
Oh this is a hard one. Depends on my mood. Loved The Waltons and Little House on the Prairie. Also loved Chicago Hope, a medical show that started about the same time as ER, and which had Mandy Patinkin (who won an Emmy) and Hector Elizondo as doctors, among others. It was great. Loved the episodes where Mandy Patinkin's character sang. I guess I'd choose that one. Oh, but then there was also St. Elsewhere in the early to mid-1980's, another medical show - Howie Mandel, Denzel Washington, Mark Harmon (who was also in Chicago Hope). It was on Wednesday nights at 9:00 and I would watch it and then put on my nursing uniform and go to work the night shift!
7. They say an elephant never forgets. These days would you say your memory is more like an elephant or a gnat?
It depends on what it is. As someone I know says, "I remember the things I want to forget and forget the things I want to remember!" But overall, I have a really good memory. I got that trait from my dad. I've always been able to remember dates, places, locations, events, etc. Names - notsomuch!
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Have you seen this darling couple? I found this on FB and just had to share!
