Hippity Hoppity HodgePodge

1. What are your plans for Easter Day/weekend? I'm helping family move. From one state to another. Packing. Taping. Carrying. Driving. Oh, don't feel too sorry for me. I'll end up at the beach. For a few days. lol

2. Besides Jesus, what one person from The Bible would you most like to meet and why? Esther. This young woman faced death for her faith. She teaches us that: There is a time of preparation. We need God's favor. God works in His time and His season. Our past does not hinder our future with God. His timing is best.

3. What is one modern day convenience you didn't have as a child that was easy to live without? I'd have to choose a microwave. It has it's good points for quickly warming up foods and liquids, but there are easy ways to do that without one.

4. Are you more right brained or left brained? If you don't know what that means there is an interesting little quiz here. I'm "right brained" by one percent. But my strongest characteristics are left brained: sequential and reality based (no surprise there). Here's my results. How did you fair?

Thank you for taking the Creativity Test. The results show your brain dominance as being:

Left Brain Right Brain
50% 51%

You are more right-brained than left-brained. The right side of your brain controls the left side of your body. In addition to being known as right-brained, you are also known as a creative thinker who uses feeling and intuition to gather information. You retain this information through the use of images and patterns. You are able to visualize the "whole" picture first, and then work backwards to put the pieces together to create the "whole" picture. Your thought process can appear quite illogical and meandering. The problem-solving techniques that you use involve free association, which is often very innovative and creative. The routes taken to arrive at your conclusions are completely opposite to what a left-brained person would be accustomed. You probably find it easy to express yourself using art, dance, or music. Some occupations usually held by a right-brained person are forest ranger, athlete, beautician, actor/actress, craftsman, and artist.

Your Left Brain Percentages
  61% Sequential (Your most dominant characteristic)
  40% Reality-based
  27% Linear
  25% Logical
  17% Symbolic
  0% Verbal (Your least dominant characteristic)

Your Right Brain Percentages
  44% Nonverbal (Your most dominant characteristic)
  36% Fantasy-oriented
  34% Random
  29% Intuitive
  19% Concrete
  18% Holistic (Your least dominant characteristic)

5. What is something you intended to do today but didn't? Why? Finish up some HR paperwork. I ran out of time.

6. Cadbury Creme Eggs or Reeses peanut butter? Cadbury Creme Eggs. I can get a Reeses any ol' day. 

7. Who was your favorite cartoon character when you were a child? Wile E. Coyote. What? Really? Yep. He never gave up. He didn't always make the right choice, but no matter what the circumstance or the odds against him, he kept trying.
8. Insert your own random thought here. Yesterday was my anniversary. Eight wonderful years. I am so blessed.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting. Please hop on over to Joyce's to read other participants answers or better yet, link up with your own. 
Peace and Joy,

Galatians 2:20 (NKJV) I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Happy Anniversary! I completely forgot about the microwave!

Joyce said...

Happy Anniversary! I loved that coyote too : ) We'll be moving my daughter in a couple of weeks. We will not end up at the beach. boohoo.

Happy Easter!

Susan said...

Happy Anniversary! I think that's one reason I like Cadbury Creme Eggs too - because you only get them at Easter! Happy day to you.

Lorie said...

Happy Anniversary!

Have fun at the beach.

April said...

Esther is definitely a great choice! A few days at the beach sounds like a winner to me! Hope you and your honey had a wonderful celebration!

Sami said...

Happy belated anniversary!
Cadbury Creme Eggs are one reason I look forward to spring every year. I can't count how many I eat in a season.

Catherine said...

Ah, the beach .... Sigh ....

Lea also known as "CiCi" said...

Oh, love that you would like to meet Esther. Good one!

Ugh, moving! The thought of packing and moving makes my bones ache. But, I really would like to move as long as someone else was doing all the packing and hauling. :o)

Easter filled blessings to you!

Happy Belated Anniversary!

Donna @ The House on the Corner said...

I said microwave too!! Having grown up without one - it really is a non essential for me.

Loved your description of Ester.

Mindy said...

I love these little questions. Since I'm new to your blog, it gave me a very quick insight to you. How fun! Where do the questions come from?

Happy Anniversary! (Hopped on over here from Joyce's blog - oh how thankful I am for her!) And I LOVE Wil E Coyote - I agree, I was always oh so hopeful that he would catch that cocky roadrunner! :-) have a blessed day!

Joyce said...

Oh my goodness - I took the test and I am more left-brained! I noticed the old ashtray picture on your blog and thought how ironic - a friend/co-worker (who is about 10years younger than me) and I went to an antique shop on Tuesday at lunch and she saw one of those and wanted to know what it was! :)

I am more left-brained than right-brained hmmmmmm. That was a pretty good test. The coyote was pretty funny but my fav was Marvin the Martian - he was just soooo cute! :)
