Happy Anniversary Hodgepodge!

Happy Anniversary! or Happy Birthday! However you want to say it the Hodgepodge hits 100 today! Congratulations Joyce and I hope you have power soon so you can see all the responses!

1. What creeps you out?
When I think of being creeped out, I think of something that gives me the heeby jeebies (I think that's how it's spelled). Lots of blood, that creeps me out. Gives me the shivers just thinking about it.

2. What's your least favorite candy?
Didn't you always hate those orange and black wrapped candies as a kid? I'm not sure what flavor they are but they are yucky.

3. Are you a fan of scary movies? What's the scariest movie you've ever seen?
I hate scary movies. I've seen Friday the 13th and tried to watch Halloween but I couldn't make it through.

4. What part of life confuses you the most?
Interesting question. I have to say I never really feel confused so I'm not sure how to answer it.

5. Pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, poppy...what's your favorite seed?
Not a big seed person. Perhaps a good sesame seed bun? I'm allergic to pumpkin seeds. I only like to suck the salt off of sunflower seeds.

6. Imagine your life ten years from today...what's changed?
First of all the house will be paid for. That means all the money that I'm spending on a mortgage can be saved up for fantastic vacations each year. I can retire by then too so maybe a whole new second career will be in the works for me.

7. What do you a) love the most and b) like the least about the Hodgepodge?
Love getting to know people from all around the world. I've found some of the best blogs through the Hodgepodge. Like least maybe some of the questions that use quotes. I'm not a big quote person so I never know how to answer them. But others do, so I wouldn't change anything about the Hodgepodge.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I'm getting my hair colored so no roots are showing when I go to my meeting in DC this weekend. I would hate to show up and people look at me and think man she can't even take care of her hair. LOL. I'm sure that's not what they think but I will think they do, so why not get it done. But do we really need an excuse to get our hair done?

We are hosting a Trick or Treat event at work. All the people who work here bring their kids and go around to all the offices. It is always cute to see the little ones. We seem to have had a lot of babies this year and those parents go crazy for cute costumes.


  1. Happy Halloween! Enjoy the trick-or-treating at work. I am wondering how many kids we will have tonight, seems we get less and less each year.

  2. Visiting everyone on this weeks round of hodgepodge has reminded me of how many candies I don't like. Just thinking of those awful orange and black wrapped candy almost gives me a headache. So yucky!

  3. It's always interesting to hear what the parents I work with are dressing their children as for halloween. Some sound cute and some I think 'What?'. Have fun! :)

  4. I love to see the little ones dressed up for Halloween. My 2 year old grandson is going as a dinosaur and has been practicing his roar.

  5. Do you know that my hubby and I talk all the time about those orange and black candies and how much we hated them as kids? Worst candy ever!

  6. I've met some awesome people through the Hodgepodge, too! So glad Joyce decided to start it! :)

  7. I could never be a medical doctor or a nurse because I am squeamish about blood and other bodily excretions...

  8. I call hair days at the salon "restoration days" and it's NOT an option! ha!

  9. Slowly but surely making my way around to last week's Hodgepodge answers. I just had my hair done today...I think a trip to the salon is good for pretty much whatever ails you : ) Enjoy D.C.!
