Wednesday Hodgepodge is a basket full of questions that we answer, then blog-hop and read someone else's answers (and have a chuckle or two or maybe three).... make some new friends, stumble into someones interesting blog that otherwise you'd never have known about, find out what's going on in other cities, towns, villages, states, provinces..... Bottom line is it's a pretty neat idea! Having said that, hop on over to From This Side Of The Pond, and follow her blog, join in the fun, afterall, that's where the Wednesday Hodgepodge was founded!
This week's hodgepodge is: Pack Your Suitcase....
... and here's the Q & A
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.
Um... not to sound greedy but THEY'RE ALL MY FAVORITE... soft serve, hand dipped, frozen yogurt... I love them all. I love them more when someone else pays for them! I love vanilla soft serve dipped in the chocolate that hardens on it... yum.... or the half & half soft serve dipped in coloured sprinkles.
Raspberry or strawberry frozen yogurt is yummy. Sometimes I take a small yogurt and stuff it in the freezer to harden it. Beats running down the block to the ice cream shop.
I've also had coffee flavored old fashioned (home made??) ice cream once when I visited Brooklyn NY. It was fabulous!!
2. When you travel do you tend to pack too much or too little?
I pack too much. I always have too many tops and under garments. I think the under garment issue stems from mom always telling us to pack enough so we'll have clean underpants in case we get into an accident. Though I still don't understand the logic in that because if I get into an accident sure enough I'll likely wet myself and no longer have a clean pair on. *shrugs shoulders*
3. What's your favorite cleaning product?
My favorite cleaning product is Vim. I love that cleaner!
4. What's the greater tragedy-an innocent person imprisoned or a guilty person set free? Explain.
Hmm... I'll agree that an innocent person imprisoned can't reclaim the time lost from their loved ones. The guilty will eventually have to deal with God,
5. What's the longest trip you've taken by car?
The longest trip by car I've ever taken was back in 1989 when my dad and I drove from here (Montreal) to Antigonish, Nova Scotia. We stopped along the way to rest, stretch our legs, buy fast food and take a few photos so it surely extended the drive. Took us about 21 hours or so to make the drive. Should have only been a 15 hour drive I think. Back then I thought it was awsome, now there is no way you'd get me to drive in a car that long. Sure I'll ride the train as I can get up and move around while the vehicle still moves but not a car ride.
6. tennis-golf-canoeing-biking...pick one.
Biking. I pick Biking. I played tennis (against a wall) and it hurt my arm, made me run too much... basically I made myself run too much! Canoeing, unless I'm pulling up and casting a fishing line then, NO! Golf, I tried putting and though I'm a righty, I use lefty clubs... I did alright but got bored real fast, now I just watch it on tv (I'm a Rory McIlroy fan...
7. What sound drives you crazy?
Heavy breathing. I know that sounds nuts but should I really hear someone breathe? Imagine if my husband snored oh heavens I'd have smothered him with the pillow long ago! .... and yes, gum chewing with the mouth open smack smack smack STOP IT JUST STOP IT!!
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I'm reading... actually LISTENING to an audio book that I desperately wanted to buy and read but ended up with the audio track instead. Sort of glad I got the audio version because the beginning was dry so if I were reading it I'd have stuffed it on the shelf for a week then given it to a friend so as to free up the shelf space. But the audio version I just feel like I'm listening to a talk show on the radio and got past that boring bit now, 9 hours later am just 2 hours from finishing the book that turned out to be pretty good. (fyi the book is : Collide, by Megan Hart, it's a Harlequin Spice/Romance novel)
