fiscal cliff, kick the can down the road, double down, job creators/creation, passion/passionate, yolo (an acronym for you only live once), spoiler alert, bucket list, trending, superfood, boneless wings, and guru
Which of these words/phrases would you most like to see banished from everyday speech and why. Go here to read more about how the words were chosen.
Well, none of these words/phrases bother me in the least. None are nasty or offensive, fairly senseless, yes, but if folks want to use them, then more power to them.
When our daughter was in the 6th grade she was a part of an area Children's Choir called Masterworks. They traveled to Washington D.C. during the Cherry Blossom Festival to sing and we went via train. That was an experience to say the least! There were about 40 kiddos and probably 25 parents.
3. Bagels-yay or nay? Favorite 'flavor'? Favorite topping?
It was be a yay! Blueberry and cinnamon would be my favorite and I don't think you can beat some good ole cream cheese for a topping. I can only eat a half because they are just too "bready."
4. 'Tis the season of awards shows...if you could star in a movie already made which one would you choose?
I would be Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side. I loved that movie and the story behind it. Such a "feel good" movie!
5. The move towards single gender classrooms has been making the news in recent months....what say you? Do you think kids perform better if separated by gender and are taught differently or is that discrimination? If you're a parent, is this something you'd support in regard to your own children?
I think there is more to be gained in mixed gender classes. I have no idea if kids perform better if separated by gender or not, but I can't imagine that they do. Day to day life is not separate, we are in mixed gender environments all of our life, so kids might as well get use to it from the beginning. I would not have supported it when our children were in school.
6. What's your favorite thing about staying in a hotel?
I love staying in hotels! I feel so responsibility free, no bed to make, clean towels everyday, clean room and generally it's just a cozy feeling.
7. Do you have a 'word' for 2013? What's the story behind your choice?
Well, since you asked, yes I do. I have not said anything to anyone about it, so guess I'll now "spill the beans." My word for 2013 is expectation. I have never had a "word for the year" but decided that I wanted one this year. One definition of expectation is "eager anticipation." I like that and I'm going to try and live this year just that way, "eagerly anticipating." There are several things I would like to see happen this year and I felt expectation was the word for me.
