Wednesday Hodgepodge (With Limericks!!!)



1. Do you play games of luck/chance for money? Have you ever played bingo for money? Visited a casino?  Placed a bet on a horse? Bought a lottery ticket?

Nope to all of the above. The closest I've even gotten to a slot machine was the Las Vegas airport during a layover.

2. Will you be preparing and/or dining on the traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage meal this St. Patrick's Day? Mashed-baked-hash browned-french fried...your favorite way to have potatoes?

I'm not planning on it at this point in time, though I do like it! As for my favorite kind of potatoes? I like them all, but I eat the french fried kind most often.

3. What's the last thing you felt 'green with envy' over?

Hmmmm. I remember being envious of everyone last week who was healthy while I felt miserable!

4. What's at the end of your rainbow?

Heaven!

5.March 12th marks the anniversary of the death of Anne Frank (June 12, 1929-March, 1945). Anne's diary detailing her time spent hiding from the Nazi's during the war ranks as one of the best selling books of all time. Besides your blog, do you keep any sort of diary or journal? Was this a habit you developed as a child or is journaling something new for you?

I do keep a journal around, I don't write in it every day. I mainly write when I get the urge to. (Or if I get inspired to write some poetry, which doesn't happen often.) So that means, sometimes every day, sometimes only once a month. Just kind of depends. I didn't write a great deal when I was a child, I think I mostly started more when I was a teen.

6. What's an item in your home or closet that contains every color of the rainbow?

I bought this tea cup and saucer a few weeks ago. Not sure if it has all the colors of the rainbow, but it has a lot of them! :)


7. Write a limerick with you as the subject. You can do it!! Just remember this is a family friendly blog...don't make me get out my wooden spoon.

There once lived a gal who loved reading,
More time in her day she was needing.
But the books to be read,
Simply piled up instead,
Since the time change was not receding.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I've officially decided I'm crazy. The other day at work I noticed myself doing the silliest thing! I was taking all the paperclips off of a stack of papers and replacing them with new ones. Which doesn't seem crazy until you find out why.

Because I thought it was only fair that the other paperclips get their turn to be useful.

Yes, I was attributing feelings to inanimate objects. Who does that? Me apparently.

Does that seem sane to you? Or am I certifiable? ;P

There once was girl gone insane,
Paperclips had addled her brain.
Office supplies
Unstabilize.
Beware lest it's you they obtain!

(Yeah, not my best work.)

Toodle-loo kangaroos!

  1. Great job on your limericks--I totally stink at that. I used to give feelings to my stuffed animals but never paperclips. I used to rotate which stuffed animals to sleep with so none would feel neglected. Now they all sit around my house and I neglect them all!

    1. Thanks Karen. :)

      That does make me feel better and at least they're all neglected equally now! So none of them can complain about that. :D

  2. Nice limerick. Ok, yes, changing out paperclips DOES seem a bit extreme. But if that's the worst you do, NO problem!

  3. Oh snap - you pulled out another witty limerick!!!! :) awesome!

    I do the same thing with objects. Like they have feelings & emotions. At least I know I'm not the only one crazy now :)

  4. Ok, SO impressed that you pulled out two limericks! And I agree with Marla - if that's the worst you do, then I'm pretty sure you're ok... or you need a job at Disney where they EXCEL at giving emotion to inanimate objects! ;-)

    1. Well, I was writing them late last night, so I wasn't sure if they'd even make sense today. :D

      A job at Disney! What a great idea. Why didn't I think of that?

  5. OH, my word! You made me laugh literally OUT LOUD just now. The paperclip craziness was funny enough, but your limerick sent me over the guffawing edge!

    Just in case it's any comfort, I have done the same thing ascribing feelings to my pots and pans. I hear conversations between them. "I'm getting claustrophobic in this cabinet. Are you?" "No, but could please stop touching me?" and "Baby, I love when you sit in my lap that way."

    1. So glad I could brighten your day Zoanna! You sure brightened mine. Now I'm going to imagine all my pots and pans talking to me when I use them. Although I'm not sure mine will be quite as witty as yours! haha :D Anytime I need a chuckle, I'll just come back to your comment. Guaranteed to make me smile.

  7. Hi! I do love spring and the daffodils we get around here, nothing but a gorgeous site! Too bad i get spring allergies though. Anyway where in CA do you live? If you don't mind me asking. I'm up in the bay area i love both northern and southern CA I grew up & lived my first 20 years in Arcadia which is two towns over from Pasadena. We were tired of the smog and coyotes, though i was pretty bitter about the move for quite some time.

    1. I'm with you Nikki. My eyes enjoy the sights of spring, but my nose and allergies sure don't. :/

      I don't mind you asking at all, and I'm in the Central Valley. Not too far from the Bay area actually. :) I've never been to Arcadia. (In fact I just looked on google maps to figure out where it's at.) Definitely a big difference between here and there I bet! :)

  8. Haha! Awesome limerick!!And I've layovered in the Las Vegas airport - talk about crreeeeeepy!! Oh and gral...that paperclip OCD thing? Something I'd totally do! I used to feel compelled to hug my dolls while laying in bed when I was little, because I had this random theory that they found their "life" from the hugs of their owners. If I didn't hug them at night, they would die. ;)

    1. Thanks Kellie! It's good to know there's a whole club of us crazy people out there. I'm not feeling so alone anymore! ;P And I love the idea of finding life from hugs. Hugs are important! Now I have a good excuse to hug everything! :D

      Isn't that airport creepy? And LOUD. The time I was there was the middle of the night, which did not help matters at all!

    1. I've been really having fun using my cup April. It always makes me smile! :) And thanks!

  10. I don't think you're crazy : ) I think we all have our little quirks and rotating your paper clips around isn't the worst thing in the world.

    I'm loving the limericks today!

    1. The limericks have been awesome! I'm so happy that you suggested it, Joyce! Definitely a fun way to make me smile. :)

  11. Oh no, oh no, you are not insane! I rotate my coffee cups so none of them feels unwanted.

    Or maybe we're both insane...

    1. We can be insane together Hamlette! I love that about your coffee cups. I too, rearrange things so nothing gets neglected. It doesn't have to make sense to normal people does it? So long as it makes sense to us anyway. Glad we understand one another! ;D

  12. Hahahahahaha! Yes, that IS crazy, but not certifiable. Just funny crazy. Thanks for the laugh!
