Wednesday Hodgepodge

Wednesday's and Joyce, they go hand in hand.  Thanks Joyce for always showing up with "brain bending" questions.

1. What's the biggest change since your childhood in the way people think or act?
Oh, permissiveness! So many things are okay now or just "glossed" over with little to no shame.  It disturbs me greatly as it relates to my precious Grans.

   2. The Olympic Biathlon involves cross country skiing broken up with either two or four rounds of target shooting. Which part of that would stress you out more? Or would you love them both equally?
That seems like such a strange mix to me and either one of them would definitely stress me out.  

3. February is National Canned Food Month...what is your most often purchased canned food item?  What was in the last can you opened?

Humm......let me see........I buy quite a few canned items but recently I've used a lot of Rotel tomatoes in chilis, and soups, so that has been my most often purchased and it is also the last can I opened.  Rotel makes most anything better in my thinking. ~the hotter the better~ Then there's the Mushroom Soup, Tomato Sauce and Green Beans..........

4. What river (anywhere in the world) would you most like to cruise?

I've never thought about this but I guess it would be the Mississippi.  I live in the South and we've crossed it in our travels a million times.  So, guess it might be fun to actually cruise it and see all the sites along the way.

5. It's the middle of the night and you can't sleep...what do you do? Count sheep? Toss and turn? Watch television? Or do you get up and do something productive?

I generally just lay there thinking, mostly about going back to sleep.  I know folks that read, watch TV, make grocery lists and all manner of things.  I refuse to get up!  I figure even if I am just laying there awake that I am still getting rest, maybe not sleep, but rest. ~sweet dreams~

6. How important is keeping your cool?

Of utmost importance!!  We all get aggravated and even angry at times.  But, we need to keep our cool even when angry.  I've seen folks lose their cool when they were angry and it was not pretty at all.  And, a lot of folks live to regret it. ~it's not worth it~
 
7. I've got white stuff on the brain so why not run with it? White lie, wave the white flag, white knuckle it, white wash a situation, or white as a sheet...which phrase could most recently apply to your own life in some way?

Oh, this would be easy, "white knuckle it."  While we were on our adventure to Florida a couple of weeks ago.  Hubby had to drive on ice and snow for 75% of the way and it was extremely stressful.  I can assure you that we both had white knuckles by the time we finally arrived in Florida.

8. Insert your own random thought here. 

I think the producers of AI likely knew that they had better do a "complete overhaul" for this season or they could just pack up and go home.  Thank goodness, in my humble opinion, they did an excellent job in their selection of judges and this years format thus far.  I really like the show but had pretty much decided that I would not be watching this season.   But, after the first episode, I changed my mind ~looking like a good season~

  1. Good morning! Hubby and I are both enjoying AI this year too, and like you had figured I may not be watching this year. There is just something about the singing I enjoy so much so I am glad they have done a much better job with their judges. Enjoy your day!

  2. Don't watch AI. We used to watch the Canadian version however they don't make it any more.

  4. When I am awake in the middle of the night, I often will empty the dishwasher. It's something I can do in a half-asleep state of mind and know that I won't regret it in the morning.

    As for the biathlon, none of that is me at all. Much prefer to just watch it all on TV.

  5. I never sit and watch AI beginning to end, but I enjoy hearing the actual singing. I don't think it would have lasted without a revamp. I'm enjoying the drama-free judges...that used to really turn me off and was why I quit watching. I also love that they didn't focus on the poor souls who somehow got an audition and were ghastly. Enjoy your day...freezing rain here. Winter carries on!

  6. I, too, have been enjoying AI this season. So far, so good! You can't beat the Mississippi River, as far as I'm concerned!

  9. Me too on the Rotel, I use it often. Always have a few creamed soups in the pantry for recipes. I remember a few drives like that years ago and they are "white knuckling" for sure!!! I have to admit I am loving AI this year. Look so forward to it each week.

  10. I don't usually like getting up during the middle of the night either. I may not be comfortable in my bed, but I can't imagine anywhere where I'd be more comfortable. Certainly not the couch! : )

  11. Question #2 intrigues me. I love the Olympics and enjoy most all of the events. Biathlon amazes me. I have cross country skied and did my fair of shooting when I was younger. Learning to control your heart rate and breathing when you are exhausted from skiing so you can shoot and hit a target is, well, just unbelievably hard! Such a mental sport!! Have a great rest of your week :)

  12. I like the judges on AI too, they have such good input and they are fair and honest in their evaluations. Keith Urban is such a nice guy, the others too. I don't get into those shows like I did at first, but still enjoyable to watch.

    I always like to see your comments on these questions Lea, such fun.
