Oh Say Can You Hodgepodge?

So it's time once again for Wednesday's Hodgepodge hosted by Joyce over at From This Side of the Pond.  By now you should know the drill, seven questions and one random thought.  It's easy and fun!  Play along won't you?

1.  What makes you stand to your feet and cheer?

When good wins.

2.  What's your favorite patriotic song?

Beside the national anthem I would have to say "God Bless the U.S.A." by Lee Greenwood.  You can  listen to it here.

3.  Do you believe that opposites attract?  If you have a significant other, are you opposites?

Um . . yes, wait it depends, maybe not or it could be relative.  If you had nothing in common there wouldn't be anything to keep you together after you've met.  Me and my hubby are alike in some ways and opposite in others.  He is an extrovert and I most definitely am not.  But we both play golf (except I haven't played in a couple of years) and we mostly like the same kinds of foods, we have the same ideals and values, and its important to be on the same page when dealing with your kids.

4.  You're going to get a behind the scenes look some place  . . .  where would you like that to be?


5.  How far would you have to travel to ride a carousel (merry-go-round)?

Well, why would anyone want too?  Not so much fun for the over 10 crowd however I wouldn't have to go very far, there is one at the South Towne Center mall and I have actually ridden on it with my boys recently.  Yeah, not so much fun for the over 10 crowd.  But they had fun.

6.  When was the last time you saw fireworks?  What was the occasion?  Do you enjoy fireworks?

Last July 4th we went over to friends and watched with them.  I do enjoy them, but I don't enjoy the crowds or the mosquitos.  When we were kids we used to climb up on the roof of our house and we could watch them all over the valley.

7.  Of all the beauty products you own, what item do you consider to be the most overpriced?

All of it, if it delivered on all of its promises then it might be worth the money but $15.00 for a tube of mascara is a bit much and I have yet to find one that doesn't flake off or smear during the day or $20.00 for eye cream that is maybe an ounce.  The packaging keeps getting smaller and the price keeps getting bigger.  Ouch!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Say a prayer today for our leaders, whether you are republican or democrat, whether you are from Zimbabwe or America or somewhere in between.  They have a thankless job and the whole world is watching to see if they screw it up.  Pray that God would guide and direct them according to His will.

 1 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving 
be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, 
that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
I Timothy 2:1-2

Now hop on over to Joyce's and see what everyone else had to say.

Happy Wednesday everyone.

I'll agree on the cost of beauty products. They are our outrageously priced. Have a great day!

Yummy looking cake!

Love Lee Greenwood's song.

Heaven is a great answer! Wish I would've thought of that one.

A prayer for our leaders is an excellent random thought. Loved it!

Your random thought ROCKS! Thanks for the spiritual nudge :)

Laura said...

That cake looks soo delicious!
Thanks for sharing your answers, I'm always interested in getting a peek in someone's head :)

hot tip: I tried L'Oreal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara and it's the best drugstore mascara I've tried it. Goes on creamy and smooth, doesn't flake, and even on my oily skin it doesn't smudge. Give it a try the next time you need a new tube!

Heaven? What a concept! I think I'd like to go with you. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you'll come back!

I loved your answer to #1. It made me think about the ultimate battle, in which Jesus will defeat satan once and for all. What a wonderful day that will be!
