1. What creeps you out?
SPIDERS! Ugh, can't stand them! I don't even like fake ones, as silly as that may sound. This time of year, I especially don't like the spidery decorations. In the most recent remake of Charlotte's Web, I could hardly stand to watch the close-ups of Charlotte and she's a "nice" spider! I know, I'm weird. But there's no getting around how much they creep me out, even just thinking about them.....*shudder* Okay! Next question!
2. What's your least favorite candy?
Is that even possible? :) No really, I don't know. I'm not sure I can pin it down to just one. There's a few I don't like, black licorice for instance. Or dark chocolate (milk chocolate all the way for this gal), also not a fan of anything with nuts in it except maybe m & m's. The list could maybe go on but I'll stop with three.
3. Are you a fan of scary movies? What's the scariest movie you've ever seen?
Absolutely NOT a fan of scary movies. I remember going to a sleep-over with friends from school in about third grade and we watched some scary movie, I don't remember what it was now (actually that's not true, but if I tell you, you'll probably say "Why that's not scary at all!", to which I'll reply "Try telling my eight year old self that!", so I think I'll keep it a secret just in case), and I was the only one still awake halfway through it. I couldn't understand how my friends could sleep through that stuff! So I jumped up and turned it off, but I still had trouble sleeping that night. I was traumatized early I guess. Never have been a fan of scary movies, I don't see that changing, and I'm perfectly okay with that. :)
4. What part of life confuses you the most?
I always imagined that by the time I was a proper adult (whatever that is) I would feel like an adult and thereby make adult decisions. Ha! I am still learning that while I may look adult on the outside, I sure don't feel like it inside all the time. And I sure don't always make the right adult decisions. I look back at some of the things I've said or done and think "And I'm how old? I should totally know better!". I just figured I'd have life a little bit more figured out by now. Sigh, not gonna happen any time soon I don't reckon.
5. Pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, poppy...what's your favorite seed?
I can eat any of them, but personally I'd prefer none of them on anything I'm eating. Perhaps in a salad, but only a few. I know, I'm so picky. I try not to be, but what can you do? (You're all probably wondering what kind of person I am by now, right? "Does she like anything?" I do! Really!)
6. Imagine your life ten years from today...what's changed?
Oh boy, I never know what to answer to questions like this. Good Lord willin' and the creek don't rise, I hope I'm a better budget-er, that my nieces and nephews think I'm the best aunt ever, and that I'm even more content with where God has placed me (wherever that may be) and what He wants me to do. I'm sure I could get more personal, but I think I'll leave it right there.
7. What do you a) love the most and b) like the least about the Hodgepodge?
Considering this is only my second one ever, I don't have a least favorite thing, but I can say that I think this is great fun! I love going to each of the blogs and seeing what everyone else thought up. So far, I seem to find one of two answers that make me say "Why didn't I think of that?". It's just delightful to find out funny little quirks about each other. And to know that I'm not the only with funny little quirks in their life. :)
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Well, considering that this is supposed to be a book review blog first and foremost, I seem to slacked off a little the past couple weeks, haven't I? The only excuse I have for myself is that baseball came in and took over several evenings of my life (Yay Giants!!) I didn't used to be a sports fan of any sort. (My roommate can attest to that. When I first moved in, she would faithfully watch the playoffs and the World Series. I always contented myself with a good book.) But somewhere along the way I watched a game and actually enjoyed it. I could even sort of figure out what was going on! (Because I'm hopelessly confused and unable to figure out football or most other sports, but mostly football.)
So one day a couple weeks ago, I passed through the living room and a game was on. I had to eat at the table (which is in front of her TV), so I watched a few innings and even after I was done eating, I had to finish the game! Then once the San Francisco Giants won their division or series or whatever (see, I'm still a little clueless), and we knew they were going to the World Series, of course I had to watch all those games too. (I was rooting for the Giants simply because I live in CA and they do too and isn't that why you root for teams?) :)
Anyway, so with all that excitement going on, reading kind of got pushed to the wayside. But now baseball is over, so I'm game to get back to reading faithfully every day. Go Kara go! :)
So what creeps you out?
Toodle-loo kangaroos! Have a safe and fun Halloween and I hope you get lots of your favorite kind of candy! :)
