Wednesday Hodgepodge - Yes it is Tuesday

OK so I realize now after two hours that it is Tuesday and not Wednesday. But I can't figure out how to unpost this and then post it tomorrow, so just deal with it.

1. Share a favorite song lyric.

I was told that I can't say "I don't know" so I'll come up with something. I'd be much better at favorite movie quote.

So I'll pick Alanis Morrissette's Ironic for this one.

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's okay and everything's going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face

Sort of sums up life right there, doesn't it?

2. When was the last time someone yelled at you?

I don't know if anyone has yelled at me? And if someone has, I've blocked it from my memory.

3. Money, fame, happiness...are they mutually exclusive?

Certainly not exclusive. Maybe ellusive for some. But I think you can have all three if you are a well-balanced person.

4. What is your favorite dish to prepare for family and friends that doesn't require turning on the stove, oven or an outdoor grill?

Pulled pork. You get a Boston butt pork with the bone in it, put it in a crockpot with a little salt, pepper, Old Bay seasoning, and cook it overnight. In the morning take out the bone, shred the meat, add some BBQ sauce and cook a little longer. Absolutely easy and super tasty.

5. The first week of August is National Simplify Your Life Week. What is one thing you could do this week to simplify your life? Will you do it?

I don't think my life is complicated right now. If anything, I need to come up with something to fill down time.

6. On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being 100% and 1 being not at all) how tuned in are you to your country's national political scene?

I'll go with a 5. I know what is going on that is important (i.e. not what the media tells me is important). I vote in all the elections. But I refuse to listen to the garbage that all the politicians tell us. As the song says...Can't we all just get along?

7. What are your final parting words to the month of July?

It was the hottest July Oklahoma has ever had and I'm afraid it is planning on an extended stay.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I just got dates for me to go to a meeting in Colorado in October. I hope I can wait that long for cooler temperatures.


  1. I love pulled pork made in the crock pot. That's about the only thing I make in my crock pot in the summer. Somehow most crock pot meals feel wintry to me.

  2. forgot to say-its okay to post on Tuesday, the link just won't be up Wednesday : )

    Also, my oldest also had a random roommate-they are out of college now but stayed together thru the whole four years and are still the closest of friends. My advice is if the roommate isn't working out switch early on because their living situation is a huge part of their university experience. They don't have to be best friends but do need to be compatible.

  3. sorry for 3 comments-that should say 'til Wednesday"

  4. Pulled pork from the crock pot! Thank you, I now know what we are having for dinner!

  5. I really feel for all my friends in Oklahoma this summer. I would be dying...and my electric bill would be through the roof from running the air conditioner.

  6. Glad I don't live in Oklahoma :/

    I didn't even think of posting a crock pot meal. That sounds delicious!

  7. The pulled pork sounds delish! For some reason I don't use my crockpot much in the summer, but probably should :)
