Wednesday Hodgepodge

It's Hodgepodge day around these parts once again.
I mean to do it every week, but sometimes I just forget that it's Wednesday.
I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, you know.

Join up at Joyce's page!

1. July is National Ice Cream Month...your favorite flavor? Soft serve, hand dipped or frozen yogurt-which do you prefer? And technically yogurt is not ice cream but its hot outside so I'll let that slide for today.

How did I not know this until July 27th? I could have used it as an excuse to indulge in my favorite treat! My favorite kind of ice cream today is the soft serve from Chick-Fil-A. Some McDonalds' also carry the same kind, but it's hit or miss between the different stores.
You see, it has to be the icy kind. I know I can't do justice with words, but if you tasted the difference you would know it. I'm not sure if it's the mix, or the machine temperature, or what. But take my word for it, there is a difference in the soft serve at certain locales.
And it is important.

2. When you travel do you tend to pack too much or too little?

I would say that I'm fairly accurate with my packing.
I purposely overpack for the children, because you really just never know when one of your lovelies will surprise you with urine, vomit, or major food spillage. But overall I come home with mostly dirty clothes and just a few extras, so I guess I'm doing something right.

3. What's your favorite cleaning product?

Ooh, my favorite is that new scrubber that you leave in your bathtub that scrubs it all by itself and leaves it sparkling clean. 
Love that!

4. Which is the greater tragedy-an innocent person imprisoned or a guilty person set free? Explain.

I'm going to go with the innocent person imprisoned. While it does seem unfair that someone guilty is "getting away with it," ultimately we will all give an account to God of our actions and words. 

We watched a movie the other night about a young mom wrongly convicted of murder and put away in prison. Her husband would bring their son to visit and he wouldn't talk to his mom or kiss her anymore and it was just terrible. It haunted me.

5. What's the longest trip you've taken by car?

Idaho to North Carolina. 
It wasn't short.

6. tennis-golf-canoeing-biking...pick one. 
Tennis. But only on the Wii. 
Does that count?

7. What sound drives you crazy?

The Whine. 
It lurks about every day. 
It wont go away.
I can't stand The Whine.

8. Insert your own random thought here. 
Well, as I was typing this my Backspace button fell off my keyboard. This is annoying. I must figure out how to fix it or never make a mustake typing againe. 
You can see that last one istn' workign out fo rme. 

Also, today on Facebook, one of my "friends" had this as her status update. 
"awesome...I just picked a scab. I haven't done that since Jr. High! I wasn't even paying attention."
Facebook has officially jumped the shark for me.  
Finally, in regards to the bathtub scrubber mentioned in #3, it doesn't really exist. I don't have a favorite cleaner so I just made up what would be my favorite if it existed. Sorry to disappoint.

It's funny our #7 was the same...I feel your pain. AND...bummer, about the bathtub scrubber. Really...too bad.

Did it change from Thursdays to Wednesdays?

Too bad about the bathtub product. Facebook can be creepy...perhaps it is time to 'cull' your friends list : ) I have a relative who posts so much trivia in her status updates-think "it's hot" 'I have a headache" 'my allergies are killing me"...yeah. The real problem though is she has about 30 friends who comment on these updates so they act as fuel for the fire.

Sadly, there is no Chick-Fil-A where I live. Boo.

Oh, I totally knew you were lying to us about that danged scrubber. Trust me. My kids would have invented it, if it existed. They hate cleaning their tub.

Me and Mr. Wright said...

I was going to comment to ask you about your favorite cleaner, as I just cleaned my shower and screamed profanities at it.

Enjoy your time with the hubs before the D#*%+%ment.

You CANNOT do that to me. You had my hopes set so high for that bathtub scrubber thingy. I was thinking... is it like the "roomba" that vacuums your floor?
