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 are chosen.
"Thank you in advance"...grrr...don't get me started on the state of thank you writing in America. I guess it's just plain old fashioned ingratitude. The only thank yous I get are the ones I self address at baby/bridal showers and "thank yous in advance"which are somehow grammatically disturbing and manipulative. I had no idea that trickeration was a word at all. Use that in a sentence, please. Huh?
2. Are you easily embarrassed?
Despite my talkative, outgoing personality the answer is YES! Why do people think that they can't hurt or embarrass extroverts. Be nice, people!!
3. What is your go-to snack?
Lately, whole almonds.
4. Have you ever been to Washington D.C.? If not do you have any desire to go? What site/attraction would you most want to see in that city? If you have been, what's your favorite site/attraction?
I've been multiple times...always with my grandparents. I like the Lincoln Memorial best. I have a stunning picture of myself standing in front of it when I was about 9 in a mustard sweatsuit with teal scrunchy socks. Cool man!
5. sit ups-planks-lunges-squats...which do you hate the least?
Love this question...hahaha...I hate planks the least...and lunges the most!! I'm still sore from Monday....ouchie!
6. What's a small act of kindness you were shown that you've never forgotten?
Loverbrains and I corresponded via e-mail for weeks before our first date at Cracker Barrel. I was early (no surprise) and fell asleep in a rocker out front while waiting for him. When I woke up he was sitting kindly and quietly beside me...He didn't make me feel bad about it either. SO, I married him. HAHA!
7. Have you ever been a blood donor?
No...I've always thought about it though...maybe I should look into it again. I'm an organ donor according to my driver's license.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I'm having the worst time getting into "my groove" since the holidays. My house is showing this...but I'm just worn out. Today, I'm doing laundry...and that's it. Well, and picking Emma up from school, of course. But...I'm happy to get back into the groove of Hodgepodge. I missed it!
