Shore It's the HodgePodge

1. Would you rather talk to everyone at a crowded party for a short time or have a significant conversation with two people? It would depend on the crowd. But I'm more likely to visit with everyone. You never know who you'll meet. There might be that one person who is in need of a kind word or engaging conversation.

2. What objects do you remember from your parent's living room? A stand up ashtray. Disgusting habit. Smoking. My dad quit the same year I did. So thankful for that. Anyway. The one in our living room next to my dad's chair was similar to this one.

3. Do you hog the bed? Steal the covers? Snore? I sleep right at the edge of the bed. It's a remnant from my previous life when I was kidnapped by aliens. lol. I am getting better. But it's something I don't think will ever go away. 

4. Speaking of Easter dinner....what is your favorite way to cook/eat lamb? Or does just the thought of that make you squeamish? If you're not cooking lamb what will be your entree du jour on Easter Sunday? I'm more of a ham or fried chicken kind of gal for Easter dinner. Cooked by someone else.

5. Let's throw some politics into this week's mix-oooohhh...Do you know the whereabouts of your birth certificate and when was the last time you had to produce it to prove you're you? I absolutely know it's whereabouts. I haven't had to produce it in a little over ten years when I applied for a passport.

6. As a child, how did people describe you? Wow. Can you believe it? They would say, "That girl sure is childish." ahaha.

7. What do you complain about the most? Probably the weather. Cold. Snow. Ice. Rain. Especially when they are combined. Ugh!

8. Insert your own random thought here. I'm not from the 'shore, nor am I a California Girl. I was raised in Iowa near Sioux City and this song comes to mind:

Is there a song you relate to yourself or where you grew up? 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,

Matthew 6:22 (NKJV) “The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light.

Love your title-wish I'd thought of it!

Ha-I left weather off my list. Maybe that means I've succeeded in blocking out winter : )

Fun answers Susan. I also love it when someone else cooks a big ham or fried chicken!

Bobbi said...

When I think of Georgia, I think of Georgia on my Mind.
I can't really complain about the weather. It's sunny in the mid to upper 70's today. Other than we set a record Monday of 90, definetly not ready for 90-100's.

So you were kidnapped by aliens...too funny!

I am sure I was called `childish` as well.

Enjoy your day!

I had forgotten about he smoking stand. Do they still make those? My father smoked a pipe and kept one of these in the family room next to his chair. I haven't seen one in years!

I recall my parents having a stand-up ashtray like that! I had completely forgotten about it until I saw the picture! I have one word for smoking...BLECH!!!

"This is the Stuff" is a song that I can relate to these days. My days are crazy, and God always reminds me that He is in the middle of everything, no matter how topsy-turvy things get.

I forgot about the ash trays. I wish someone else would cook my Easter dinner! It was a good year to complain about the weather. Enjoy the rest of your week.
