Wednesday Hodgepodge #100 (#2 for me!)



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! :)

  1. My sister is a "great" aunt. She is 9 years younger than me so babysat my children. She has a closer connection to my kids.

    1. That's my dream! Since I don't have any children, I'd like to be that fun aunt who my nieces and nephews go to for advice and encouragement. :)

  2. I am still trying to figure out the proper adult thing too.

  3. I think I'd say chocolate covered marshmallow eggs is my favorite candy, if I had to choose just one.

    Glad you enjoyed the World Series!

  6. Lots of people don't like spiders today! They actually don't bother me at all--except for their webs :)

    I'm glad you found the Hodgepodge, and stopped by to visit me. I love meeting new people :)

  8. Hello! I am relatively new to the Hodgepodge hop too! Spiders freak me out-- even the decorations, so I am with you there!

  9. I so agree with your answer to number 4! I say all the time that I don't really understand when my friends and I became the adults, but here we are. I see now that adults don't have all the answers...not even close!

  10. I enjoy reading your answers! You make me smile! (thanks.) Since your blog is mostly dedicated to books, have you gone to the Goodreads.com website? It's an interactive way to list what you are reading, to write reviews, read your friends' reviews (and see what they are reading), learn about books and authors, etc. check it out!

    1. I do use Goodreads, and it's a wonderful website! Thanks for mentioning it though, reminds me I should check in and see what new books are coming soon. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  11. What a fun meme, I love it!! Movies where people are brutally abused before being murdered creeps me out big time.

    1. It's lots of fun! I'm glad I discovered it. It's certainly given me lots of things to blabber on about. (And you know I love to do that!) :) And I would definitely agree about those kind of movies. Awful stuff.

  13. I rarely feel like an adult either. Must be a common thing.

  14. I enjoyed reading your answers, you're right--this is fun! And thanks for visiting me. I will have to visit again. :)

    1. Absolutely not! You'd be hard pressed to get me to even enter your house with that "thing" in it. :D

  16. Thank you for stopping by my blog of Hodgepodge :-) We're both newbies at it, I see! I'll be back to visit your blog, soon. It looks very interesting,especially with winter coming on in another month or so. I watch the playoffs and World Series, too. I also watch the Superbowl (sometimes) but that's about it. As far as spiders and scary movies: JUST SAY NO! They go well together and NOT in my house! When you've got the "grown-up" thing figured out, let me know ... I've been practicing for 60 years and sometimes I forget...

    1. Thanks for visiting ME! You are so right, those two things go well together and even better far far far away from me. :) Well, I guess that settles it then, being "grown-up" is a work in progress. Life is funny that way.

  17. I haven't come across this meme before but it looks to be right up my alley--love some randomness in my life. :) And I'm with you on the spiders. NO THANK YOU. And budgeting. I consider myself at least a little grown up but I'm not sure budgeting is something I'll ever get the hang of.

    1. Haha, yes the randomness is what attracted me I think! :) I though budgeting would come along with being a grown up, but so far I still struggle with it. Or maybe that means I'm not grown up enough yet. :)

  18. I'm just now catching up on last week's Hodgepodge...so glad you played along. Lots of spider-haters in the HP this week : ) I too love reading someone's answer and seeing how they took the question in a whole 'nother direction than I did. Have a nice weekend!
