The Hodgepodge Cometh

1. April 15th is the deadline for Americans to file their state and federal income tax returns. What's a job you do on a regular basis that could be described as 'taxing'?

Deciding what to fix for dinner. It's so easy to get in a rut!

2. I'm participating in the April A-Z blog challenge, and the Hodgepodge happens to fall on Day O this week. In keeping with that theme...olives, onions, oysters, okra...of the foods mentioned, what's your favorite O food?

Oreos. Oh (pun intended!), I have to stick with the ones Joyce mentioned? Well, why didn't she pick some decent ones?! And what about oranges or oatmeal? Olives and oysters are disgusting, onions should be in small amounts and either purple or sauteed, and okra should be fried or in gumbo.

3. What is something memorable you experienced as a child that your own children (or future children/nieces/nephews) will not get to experience?

AstroWorld and the Astrodome in Houston. They were such icons, and now AstroWorld is just a field and the Astrodome is in a state of disrepair and they are deciding whether to demolish it or repair it. Such a sad state of affairs for the Eighth Wonder of the World!

4. Term limits for our elected officials...your thoughts?

Yes, and everyone in office right now has exceeded theirs!

5. On April 18th, 1775, Paul Revere made his famous 'midnight ride'...when did you last make a midnight ride? Perhaps the fate of a nation wasn't hanging in the balance, but tell us where you were headed anyway.

I think it was last summer after my gallbladder surgery. They sent me home before my bladder had recovered and I had to go back around midnight for a "little intervention."

6. What would freak you out more...a mouse running across your floor or a big fat hairy spider?

Definitely the mouse.

7. I love it when people ask me________________________?

. . . if I'm younger than I actually am. LOL

8. Insert your own random thought here.

We have yet another cold front coming, but yesterday was sunny and warm. Last night I was reminded how much I love spring as the sun was still up after dinner and I could hear a neighbor mowing his yard across the way. This is my favorite time of year!

Spring hasn't made up its mind here, but that normally happens around mid May : ) I never put out my flowers before Mother's Day which in my mind is practically summer. I need to live further south!

I agree with you. Oreos would have been a much better O food.

Love Oreos and still waiting for spring to arrive. If rain is spring then it may be here.

Great answer on coming up with dinner! There are so many things future generations will never experience. Kinda sad :( Sorry about having to go back to the hospital, that certainly was not fun. I agree that Spring is awesome!

Spring seems to be on hold here in Montreal (Quebec) Canada. It's been rainy, snowy, and windy.

Oranges!!! I love oranges too... but Oatmeal first!
