Even though this is just my second time trying the Hodge Podge, Joyce has been doing this for quite a while . . . this is number 99! Let's see what questions she has concocted this week!!

1. So, do you like beer?
          No, just not fond of the smell of it so haven't had the desire to give it a go.

2.  What's your least favorite repetitive task?
          Anything in the tidying or cleaning realm. It surely seems that as soon as I manage to get things straightened up really well or cleaned really well, it hardly lasts long enough to enjoy it!!

3.  When was the last time you rode a bus?  Where was it headed?
          I was going to say last year when we took our drama kids to a Theatre Festival/Competition . . . but I managed to finagle driving my own vehicle, you know, just in case we needed a car for an emergency. : ) I guess it might have been the last time we were in Colonial Williamsburg and rode the bus that takes you all around the Loop so you can see every corner of that wonderful step back in time world.

4.  What song from your childhood or from your own children's childhood could make a parent's nerves stand on end?
     Anyone remember "The Song That Never Ends" from Lambchop and Friends back in the early 90's? It's the gift that keeps on giving . . . and giving . . . and . . . For too long it was our son's favorite song and we had to sing it to get him to smile for an extended family portrait when he was an adorable, curly headed 18 month old with absolutely no interest in smiling or sitting still. Thank the Lord for brothers and sisters in law willing to sing along!

5.  The US Presidential election cycle is drawing to a close (can I get an AMEN??), and the third and final debate was held last night...what was the last thing you 'debated about'?
     My daughter is our choreographer for the middle school musical I direct and we debated quite strongly about a few casting decisions. And amen to the election escapades coming to a close as soon as possible!!

6.  Can a person make too much money?  How much is too much?
     Hmmm . . . good question Joyce! I guess it's only too much if you have no interest in sharing with others who have a need.

7.  Pop-soda-coke-something else...what's it called where you live?
     Oh definitely soda. Brought home in a bag, not a sack. And poured into a glass filled with lots of ice that was made from "water" (pronouced wood - er) that came out of the spigot!! : )
8.  Insert your own random thought here.
      I remember having the time of my life in 5th grade singing 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall coming home on the bus from the Safety Picnic at Lenape Park . . . . all the way home and all the way to 1 and my parents were quite surprised that I'd learned such a song!! : ) Their answer to question #1 would be a very emphatic no.

      Looking forward to Hodge Podge Number 100 next week Joyce!

  1. I am curious about the origin of that song now...I know my parents must have hated it and now it does seem like a strange thing to have learned at school : )

    I started to say the song from Lamb Chops but I was a fan of that little puppet. The Big Purple Dinosaur-not so much!

    Enjoy your day!
