Wednesday Hodgepodge

This week I'm doing the Wednesday Hodgepodge on Wednesday.
Will wonders never cease?
If you'd like to join in, hop on over to Joyce's blog...

Here are this week's questions:

1. Will you watch the Super Bowl? If so who will you root for? If you are outside the USA what is the 'big deal sporting event' in your own country?

As luck would have it, I will indeed be out of the country during the Superbowl. The "big deal sporting event" in my temporary country (aka cruise ship) will be seeing how many buffets I can hit in one day.
In between the visits to the restaurants.

So, no. I will not be watching the Superbowl this year. I have a feeling that all of the sports bars on the ship might be a little crowded during the game.

I do consider myself a football fan, and if I were home I would certainly watch.

I would root for the Packers, if for no other reason than their quarterback has not been twice accused of sexual assault.
Big Ben: You, sir, are no gentleman.

Not to be confused with Rhett Butler, who was also declared with those words to be no gentleman.
But that's entirely different.
Ahh, Rhett.

Also not a gentleman (but in a bad, non-Rhett way)-- Antonio Cromartie of the Jets. Have you seen his attempt to name all of his children?

For shame, Antonio.

2. Is ignorance bliss?

It depends.
As I'm wiping the crumbs from my mouth, did you just tell me that the peice of cake I ate had 10,000 calories?
Then yes, ignorance would have been bliss.

Did you let me chat away all night with a piece of green food stuck in between my front teeth?
Ignorance= not bliss. 

3. Which of the seven dwarfs are you? (and just in case your Disney is a little bit rusty, here they are-Bashful, Doc, Dopey, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, and Sneezy)

I can assure you, my Disney is not rusty! ;)
Definitely Sleepy. If left alone, I could easily sleep 12 hours a night.
And then take a nap in the afternoon.

Before we had kids, Josh and I would sleep in until 9 or 10 on Saturday and then still manage to take a 3 hour nap in the afternoon.
The good 'ol days. 

Now anything past 7:30 is considered sleeping in, and my kids are locked into a conspiracy to keep us from ever napping again.

 4. When you are riding in the car with another couple how do you organize the seating? (Men up front? Women up front? Couples sit together?)

I can't remember the last time I rode in a car with another couple. You see, we have these 2 kids.
And they never leave us alone.
So if another couple wanted to ride with us, we'd probably have them crawl through the back of the minivan, into the third row. That way they wouldn't have to scale the middle row which is full of carseats, kids' meal toys, and enough stray pretzels to keep you alive if you were stranded in the van for, say, 3 years.

5. What is beauty?
Beauty is something that doesn't last and isn't as important as you thought it was in high school.

Proverbs 31:3-
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
6. If someone asks you to bring an appetizer or a dessert to a party in their home, which would you choose?

Well, if someone was inviting me to a party at their home, then they are probably a friend of mine. And my friends know me well enough to just request that I bring drinks or paper products.
Or maybe cash.
It's hard to mess that up.

7. What is your crowd pleasing go-to appetizer?

Let's just call a spade a spade. There is nothing I make that would please a crowd.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I own a pair of boots that I once saw being thrown away on the show What not to Wear.
I wore them to church last week.

Oh, Antonio. I've seen the clip on The Soup and it's so...disturbing! Really? How many of them are 3? For shame is right.

Jennifer said...

You're too hard on yourself. Surely your cooking isn't that bad... Alex seems to be thriving :)

And I believe that quarterback is not playing for the Packers. I think he jumped ship and went to the Vikings. Right?

Christine said...

Love your #8. Too funny, but I bet your boots are super snazzy:)

Proverbs 31 Wannabe said...

Have a super fun time on your cruise! I remember sleep...sort of. Yes, 7:30 is sleeping in once you have kids.

Joyce said...

I'm so glad you're joining the party. If I were giving a prize you would definitely get most entertaining. I always laugh when I read here.

Courtney said...

your comment for beauty was perfect :)
and i just about died laughing to your #8 - thanks for the smile!

Corie said...

Can we see a picture of the boots?

That Antonio was a busy man 4 years ago.

I happen to recall one of the greatest appetizers I have ever had was brought by you. You brought it in a silver bowl. A little something called Sundried Tomato Wheat Thins. I have since purchased 482 boxes of them thanks to you and might have eaten them for lunch today. That's right, not with lunch, but for lunch.

Love, fatty mcd
