Peachy HodgePodge

Loved these questions so thought I would answer, and I took the opportunity in question 8 to apologize for being inactive in my blogista duties!


1. How often do you check the weather? How do you check the weather?

I have Weather Bug in my system tray - and it is more for the temp than anything... so I know whether or not to take the dog out, or more like an excuse not to go for that two mile walk!  Otherwise, I stick my head outside and look up at the sky!  Not real big in knowing what it's going to do in a few days... weather will happen whether or not I worry about it!

2. Since this is volume 84 of the Wednesday Hodgepodge, and since I got married in 1984, and since I'm attending a wedding this weekend it only seems right to post something related here.

"Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance. If the dispositions of the parties are ever so well known to each other or ever so similar beforehand, it does not advance their felicity in the least. They always continue to grow sufficiently unlike afterwards to have their share of vexation; and it is better to know as little as possible of the defects of the person with whom you are to pass your life."

Agree or Disagree. Why?
 
I agree with 'Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance.'  It depends on how you grow together.  But I do not agree with the latter sentiments.  I would hope that knowing someone better before marriage is a good thing.  Do you like the way he leaves the toothpaste in the bathroom?  Is he annoyed by your hanging wet bras on the back of the laundry room door?  Knowing one another helps to make sure that you are compatible.  But most importantly, you must be friends as well as lovers for marriage to work.  If you cannot talk to your spouse about anything, then why are you together?

3. Do you like to dance? Have you ever taken dance lessons? 
 
I was very big in to dance when I was in high school and college.  When I moved to Hawaii for a year in the middle of high school, I missed dance so much, and did not have enough money for lessons that I actually worked out a deal with a dance studio that I would clean the studio for free lessons!  Now, however, I feel like I have two left feet and very inflexible!  Maybe I will take a dance class one of these days! 

4. Fresh from the oven peach pie or home made peach ice cream? Pick one. 
 
Is it bad that I don't like peaches?!  Don't like them fresh, canned, baked or otherwise!  Peach frozen yogurt in a pinch...about twenty years ago.  It's not a flavor I seek out!

5. Should people accept unfairness and learn to make the best of it? 
 
It depends on what type of unfairness it is.  Is it a civic injustice, or simply an 'I want that'?  It is simply a whiny thing, get over it!  As my high school English teacher would say, "If life was fair, I 'd have hair."  what more can you say after a statement like that?

6. The top five all time summer movie blockbusters (released between May and August and grossing at least 100 million dollars) are-Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star Wars (the original), Ghostbusters, and ET. Which one's your favorite?
 
Well, I have seen all of these, some more than others.  I know for sure that it is not Ghostbusters.  Haven't seen Jaws in ages.  ET was cute, and Raiders of the Lost Ark was adventurous!  But gotta say Star Wars wins this contest!  I saw it on opening day, having won tickets on the radio for it! ... and then four more times that summer!  I can not tell you how many times I have watched it, as I have lost count.  It's a classic, and we made sure our kids know that too!

7. If given the chance, would you like to visit the moon? 
 
Depends!  The only thing it would depend on is the mode of transportation.  I cannot do G-forces... so it would have to be an unadventurous form to travel!  I almost black out on roller coaster rides.  If the travel were smooth and easy, (and they served the kind of food I would be willing to eat) you bet!

8. Insert your own random thought here. 
 
I would like to apologize for having been remiss in my blogging as of late!  Busy with work, always; but more importantly, I have started school on top of a full time job, and I probably shouldn't even be doing this.  It has also taken me quite a while to finish reading a book for pleasure, which is very difficult to deal with, so my reading has slowed down so much, it isn't funny!  I have so many books I want to read and I might get about 15 minutes a day now, as my reading typically involves very heavy textbooks, that are difficult to read from when you are half asleep... have you ever had a 5 pound book smack you in the face while laying down before bed?  Not pleasant... thus my 15 minutes of pleasure reading... a kindle doesn't hurt as much!

Thanks for stopping by!  Would love to hear random answers for any of these questions if you haven't answered them all on your site! 

Hope your summer is filled with all of the summery things you enjoy!  We wish for more rain!
