What A Hodgepodge!

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

It's true.
I love a good hodgepodge.
Thank goodness Joyce delivers one every week.

1. By the end of 2013 what is one thing/place you want to have organized?

Hopefully a whole new organized apartment for Grad School :)
Other than that: my closet. 
I need to get rid of things I don't wear, don't like, etc.
I need to stop assigning sentimentality to things.

2. Worst uniform you've ever hard to wear for work?

We had these awful t-shirts we had to wear
when I lifeguarded at a waterpark when I was younger.
We did everything we could to avoid getting a farmer's tan.
Really, t-shirts?!?

3. Last kitchen mishap?

You know,
I'm not sure I've had one yet.
Or at least not one in recent enough memory.
*knocks on wood*

4. How do you protect yourself from other's negativity?

I try not to surround myself with negative people.
But it happens.
So, in those times I talk to my parents,
surround myself with good friends,
read, take a hot shower, sleep in,
and just breathe. 
Their negativity is not mine,
and I don't want to take in any of it.

5. Who in your family do you most resemble?

I think I'm the perfect mix of my parents, honestly.
We have such a small family there aren't many to compare to :)

6. Jan 8th - National Bubble Bath Day. Will you partake?

Maybe not on the 8th, 
but I will celebrate eventually!

7. Which of the world's best festivals would you like to go to?

Since I've already been to Carnivale in Venice:

I would love for my next one to be
Carnival in Rio!

8. Random Thought?

I still maintain that casinos are prime people watching venues.
Dad and I are in CT at the casinos, 
and man - people are hilarious. 


  1. I haven't been to a casino, but people watching in airports is fun. Actually people watching in general is fun! :D

  2. People watching is always good sport. We don't do casinos however we see lots of people on our walks.

  3. I agree that people watching can be a very entertaining way to pass the time. I liked your answer to the negativity question.

  4. I love to 'people watch' also. And I agree, people are hilarious. Now for the uniform ---"farmer's tan" cracked me up. Never heard of the expression, but I gotta love it.

  5. I love people watching. I'm sure you will agree airports are also wonderful venues for this : ) I haven't been to a casino in a long long time but I pretty much people watch everywhere I go.

  6. I love to people watch. I usually do it at a mall though. Good Luck at the casino. Stopping by from Hodgepodge.

  7. Casino people watching IS fun! It's fu to "wonder" about their history...first-timers, rich and getting richer, or spending their life savings?

  8. Stopping by from the Hodgepodge blog hop!
    I must comment-your cat baby (picture at the top of your blog) is GORGEOUS! I love cats!
    Rumor has it people are Walmart are pretty fun to watch too. lol
    Have a great day!

  9. We're not big gamblers and find the people at the casino's entertaining, too. Professional sports matches are good for that, too. ;)
