Well this is Wednesday again and time for another one of Joyce's Hodgepodge events. It is fun to play along and if you have never participated it is ok....anyone can join in at any time. Just copy and answer the questions on your blog, then jump over to Joyce's blog and post along with everyone else. The answers can be very thought provoking and hilarious. Hope you will join in.
1. A new Miss America was crowned on Saturday night-did you watch? If you were a contestant what would your talent be?
I don't watch Miss America because I don't like the concept of what it is about. If...and mind you that is a big IF I were to be a contestant I would sing. My song would be "You Raise Me Up."
2. Do you have houseplants? Real or fake?
I do have houseplants, real ones, which challenge me on a weekly basis. You see, I have a black thumb. I have had green thumb gardeners give me plants that die overnight. I also have fake plants because I love the green concept.
3. When you were in school did you speak up or were you more of the hide your face, avoid eye contact, and pray the teacher didn't call on you type of student?
I loved elementary school. I was a shining student there....but once I went to Junior High....I will be truthful and say I hated school, I did all my homework, I made decent grades, I hated taking tests and, hated to be called on in class....even if I knew the answer to something. I was the wall-flower kid who did not want any attention drawn on me. I am living proof that God has a sense of humor. I hated school so much and swore that if I ever escaped I would never return....and what do I do for a living? I teach high school.
4. Next Monday marks the Chinese New Year....what do you order when someone suggests Chinese food?
My favorite is swwet and sour chicken. I love the fried rice and egg rolls.
5. How would you define a miracle? What would it take for you to consider something a miracle?
A miracle is something that is an extraordinary occurrence that could only have happened thru God's supernatural power. The stars in the sky, the ocean, the birth of a baby, and the incredible way the human body works are a few things that never cease to feel miraculous. I have also seen a person diagnosed with stage 4 cancer be completely ruled cancer free....now that is a miracle...and that is something God had a major hand in.
6. What's your favorite Disney song? If you're stuck you'll find a list here.
From Mary Poppins, "A Few of My Favorite Things." Actually it would be any song from Mary Poppins.
7. I should have __________yesterday.
Stayed in bed. I had a Murphy's Law day. I fell yesterday morning in the bathroom....hit my head and broke the comode. I then had a day of hives and could barely stand not to scratch my entire body with a wire brush. We also started a new semester yesterday and if it could go wrong it did. Yep, I definitely should have stayed in bed yesterday.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Did you know that today is Winnie the Pooh Day? It is supposed to be an opportunity to enjoy your favorite bear and all of his friends. This day was created to celebrate the birth of A.A .Milne in 1882. He was an author of children's story books, and created Winnie the Pooh and his friends. Winnie's pals include Christopher Robin, Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet, and Roo. Who is your favorite Winnie the Poo character and why? I used to work with a girl we refered to as Eeyore...because she was so gloomy and seemed to suck the happiness out of the room whenever she entered. I love all the characters.
