Wednesday Hodge Podge - Last for February

Welcome to the Wednesday Hodgepodge!  If you've answered the questions, add your link at the end of Joyce's post, then go see what your neighbors had to say.  Here we go-

1. Did you watch The Oscars? How many of the Best Picture nominees have you seen? (American Sniper, Birdman, Boyhood, Selma, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game, The Theory of Everything, and Whiplash). Do you think actors should use their acceptance speeches as an opportunity to promote their political and/or social agenda? Does that sort of speech make you more or less inclined to change the channel?  I did not watch The Oscars. I never watch award shows.  From what I saw on the Today Show the next morning the show was not at it's best.  I was especially appalled at the behavior of John Travolta. I have not seen any of the movies you mentioned yet.  I have not had time to go to the movies.  I would like to see American Sniper and Selma, especially since I live in Alabama.
2.Speaking of the movies...are you comfortable going to a movie alone? How about dinner in a restaurant (not fast foo, but an actual restaurant)? The second half of this question was posed by Carrie who blogs over at It's Not Easy Being Queen. Thanks Carrie!  I don't like going to the movies alone nor do I like dinner in a restaurant.  If I have to eat alone...I will pick up fast food or make a sandwich at home. I don't like being a party of one.
3.What's the last home repair or home improvement project you had to pay someone to complete? In hindsight was this a project you could have done yourself?  The church had the cabinets in the kitchen redone and they are gorgeous.  I would try this on my own. 
4. Have you ever had Indian food? Like it or no? If you're a fan, what's your favorite dish? Have you ever prepared this yourself at home? Is there an Indian restaurant in your current hometown?
I an take or leave Indian food. My stomach does not love spicy food so I try and leave it alone.  The first time I had it was in England and I was up sick all night. The closest Indian restaurant is about 45 minutes from here in Auburn.  We eat there occasionally.
 5. A song that reminds you of your parents?  It Is Well reminds me of my dad and What A Friend We Have in Jesus, my mom.  Together is it Tennessee Waltz.  Everytime they heard it they would dance and I loved watching them.
6. The 26th of February is National Tell a Fairy Tale Day. What's your favorite, or one of your favorite, fairy tales? Do you have any childhood memories associated with a particular fairy tale?
When I was little my mom always read fairy tales to me.  Cinderella was my favorite. I also loved Snow White, Rapunzel, and the rest.... I plan to see Cinderella, the movie, soon.
7. What's a problem you solved yesterday?  Whether or not to call Bible Study tonight due to the weather.  I called it because I have several elderly members that attend and I did not want them driving in the snow and ice.
8. Insert your own random thought here.

Have you ever had a Murphy's Law week?  We had a holiday on Monday.  I stayed home and did lesson plans for this week...then we had a three hour delay to school on Tuesday due to weather....and that affected three of my classes.  Today we did not have school at all....and tomorrow we have a three hour delay...looks like it is back to the drawing board with my lesson plans.  SIGH!

Ahhhh, the best laid plans! In the past 2 weeks, we've been to school once, and that was a 2 hour delay.

I love Cinderella too and I am looking forward to seeing Disney's new movie.
Have a lovely weekend.
