Back to School with the Hodgepodge

School bells are ringing at Joyce's blog for this week's edition of the Wednesday Hodgepodge!

1. Way back when (the Hodgepodge bicentennial to be precise) several of you submitted questions as part of a giveaway I was hosting. I went back to that list for inspiration today and found a question submitted by Marla, who blogs over at Marla's Musings. Thanks Marla!

She asks-At what age did you feel like a 'grown-up'? What keeps you young now?

When I graduated from college and bought my own furniture and a washer and dryer.

2. When did you last buy a vehicle? Was this by design or because you had no other option? Was the car/truck purchased for your own personal use or was it bought for someone else to drive? On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being delightful and 1 being 'pass the Excedrin') how would you rate the experience?

We bought a car a couple of years ago for our girl to take to college. It was about an 8.

3. Corn bread, corn chips, corn pudding, corn on the cob, cornflakes, corn chowder-your favorite of the corn-y foods listed? What needs to be served alongside your selection?

In winter, it's corn bread (with chili or stew) but in summer, it's roasted corn on the cob with plenty of butter and salt! I love to roast it on the grill with burgers.

4. What's something in your life that regularly requires you to 'put your thinking cap on'?

Work--putting the orders in the computer and paying attention to all of the medications.

5. Share a favorite movie set in a school or classroom, or whose theme relates to school days in some way.


6. Reading, writing, and 'rithmetic' are commonly referred to as the three R's. What are the three R's in your life right now?

Rehab (my job), recovery (from work!), and reading!

7. What's something you've learned or tried recently you can say was as 'easy as ABC'?

Hypodermoclysis, which is subcutaneous IV's.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

My girl left for college on Monday, 36 hours after my boy got home from his summer intern job. We had one wonderful day together as a family on Sunday. Ah, the kids-in-college years, when your house is a hotel! LOL

My dad, who can make anything on a grill, grilled corn on the cob many years ago, with all the sugar in it caramelized. Mmm, I won't eat corn done any other way now. However your comment about corn bread made me a little hungry for chili.

Nel said...

I love cornbread with vegetable soup and chili also, can't wait for colder weather! Grease was my answer too! Have a great week!

Cheryl said...

I loved your answers! Yay for cornbread, which I've only come to love in the last few years. Grease was my movie pick too!

Ah yes, those college years are filled with comings and goings. You learn to enjoy the moments you have your whole family together, that's for sure!

I love roasted corn-on-the-cob.
Fire up the grill and add steak & corn...Yum!!
Of course, hubby does all the cooking.
