I'm SUPER excited to be linking up again today for Joyce's HODGEPODGE :) I Love doing these things but yet seem to be slacking on them (or, blogging in general...) lately!
1. Who taught you to cook?
1/2 my mom
1/2 a curious nature & a love for cook books
2. Think too much? Perfectionist? Too sensitive?
If you could have met me when I was fencing in college,
you would know that I was
(and probably still am)
all of these things and so much more.
I like doing things, and I like doing them right.
I'm probably all of these to a fault.
But hey, it's me,
and I've learned to live with it :)
3. As a child, did you have a favorite blanket or toy?
I had (and still have!) both!
First, my blanket:
it was knitted by my maternal grandmother and it's awesome.
Seriously, it's survived 26+ years and looks like new.
Creativity with naming was not a strong suit as a child...
she's pink, and she's a cat.
Who is, sadly, no longer so pink.
She's more of a grey/well loved color these days.
She was given to me by my aunt & uncle,
and I love her.
both still reside in my bed :)
4. What 'institution' do you have the most faith in?
This is really hard,
but I'd probably have to say Academia.
it's just one area which is constantly evolving and developing.
There's not much to hold it back,
and without it, we'd have quite the uneducated population.
5. Favorite in an Autumn garden?
First of all, I love that Joyce is from the NorthEast and uses 'autumn'
you only really ever hear 'fall' in the rest of the country :)
As for the plants? I think the burning bush is probably my favorite.
It's just so pretty.
6. What Superpower do the kids in your neighborhood seem to posess
Sadly, no kids in the neighborhood.
So, invisibility maybe? :)
7. Cranberry? Yea or Nay?
I love Cranberries.
Juice, fruit, sauce, etc.
8. Random Thought
there IS a holiday between Halloween & Christmas,
just in case you forgot,
it's called Thanksgiving.
Now, I LOVE Christmas.
Probably more than most people.
But, Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving have always bothered me.
But before Halloween? Really America? Really?
This is simply ridiculous.
I mean, Santa is already in the Mall.
What the heck?
