Hodgepodge March-ing...

1. March 2nd is Dr. Seuss's birthday so I'm wondering...do you like green eggs and ham? Okay-how about this instead...how do you like your eggs? Or don't you?  This is SO fun! Check out some of the stuff I'm doing with my kids...HERE!  Below is a cute little recipe video...using GREEN pesto and scrambled eggs.  I prefer my eggs cooked hard...I want the yoke runny but just barely.  My Dad makes them best!
2. Is March coming in like a lion or something less ferocious where you live?
It's very lambie this year.  I always feel nervous when it's so mild...usually means a late snow storm that kills all the blooming trees and flowers.  What?  I'm not a pessimist...I'm a realist...It does often happen that way!  

3. Do you work better or worse under pressure?
I can work well under pressure but I don't know that I enjoy it...or would want to do it on a regular basis.  I prefer to have things well planned and efficient. 

4. March Madness-are you a fan? It's college basketball in case you're wondering. And if you're outside the USA tell us-is there any sort of 'madness' taking place during March in your part of the world?  
I'm an American non-sports lover...so I'll say that the month of March is the "maddest" month I've had in a while...FULL of stuff and getting fuller.  Church activities, Kindergarten registration, Loverbrains traveling, Spring Break traveling, and dum dum dum...Jury duty.

5. Under what circumstances do you do your best thinking?
I started to say "I need it fairly quiet" but if that's really true I haven't done much of my best thinking in the past 6 years since having children.  Hahaha!  I remember going through a teen phase where I tried to be "cool" and study with the radio/tv on...and I couldn't concentrate.  Can't believe I'm saying this...my Mom was right!  Sigh.

6. What item of clothing from your wardrobe do you wear most often?
Jeans...I wear a pair almost every day.  I'm an active, involved MomE and they are comfy and durable.

7. Do you use sarcasm?
Nope, never! *Grin*  I saw this t-shirt...loved it..."National Sarcasm Society:  Like we need your support."
I have been trying to be careful though...because it's not often very nice...and that I need to stop.

8. Random Rant on Jury Duty
I love America...I am a proud patriot.  A tiny part of me was excited about jury duty...until I realized that they want to hold me up for an ENTIRE month.  What happened to assigning a specific date...ONE day.  ARGH!  Now, I get to await a call EACH WEEK telling me to show up in court...and then after I show up they decide whether they've wasted yet MORE of my time or if they'd like to seat me on the jury.  No wonder the jury always appears sour and grouchy.  I sure hope "no childcare" is a valid excuse cuz that's gonna happen.  What will they do?  I'm assuming they don't cart you off to jail.  Do you get fined?  Added stress for the ENTIRE month of March...thanks!  God bless America.

AN ENTIRE MONTH!!!! Now that's cruel and unusual! I've never heard of that. I live near a large city and they call in hundreds of people who could be assigned to any one of several trials. There are so many people called that they have to go down to one of the large auditoriums. But after that day - if you're not assigned to a trial, your done. It's pretty much the same in the small town I live in - except that the numbers are much, much smaller....

Leaving small children without childcare is an "exemption" in my neck of the woods so hopefully it's the same in yours as well!

Ha-that t-shirt is good : )
Wow-jury duty sounds super inconvenient.

I remember those busy March days-enjoy!

Amy said...

Wow that is taking your civic duty a bit too far...just pick your most comfy jeans and try to get through it.

March is coming in mildly, but Feb. sure left wildly with severe flash flooding here. It's bright and springy now but I am wondering if we'll have another cold snap before it's over.

I can't say I do my "best" work under pressure, but I do get more done then.

They do make jury duty a pain -- and then wonder why no one wants to do it. There usually is an exemption for children -- there should be somewhere on your notice what to do to gain an exemption.

Enjoyed reading your answers. I was called for jury duty (two weeks on call) on Feb. 22 which was during my trip to Florida. So I asked to be rescheduled but was worried I would get a date during my next trip. Luckily that didn't happen, I have to go in April. I have heard that people just don't report saying they never got it in the mail!! Enjoy the rest of your week.

Oh my word...one month of jury duty. Seriously? That has to be one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard of! You should be able to get off with the childcare excuse. Poor dear!

I can't believe they want you to call in for an entire month! I've never heard of such a thing. Here's hoping it all works out for you.

I love #1! My elementary school had a "green eggs and ham" day where they put green food coloring in the eggs. I remember being hesitant, but then loving green eggs and ham. I'm pretty sure they did this on Dr. Suess's bday - fun way to celebrate!
