W Is For Wednesday Hodgepodge - 4/27

1.  What is something that bothers you if it is not done perfectly?

       Very little bothers me if it isn't done perfectly.  I do like pictures to be on the wall straight.  Vocal performances really bother me if not done well, outside of karaoke.  I like for people to use grammar correctly in professional settings.  Overall, I'm not that hard to please.

2. What is one of your best childhood memories?
      I've shared several, but I always loved going fishing as a kid.  Sometimes I would go with my dad.   My favorite is when my distant cousin, Bart, would come to town and hang around the farm with me. 

3. Do you plan to watch the Royal Wedding and when was the last time you wore a hat?
     I will watch as much of it as I can, since I have to work on Friday.  I'm really excited about it, though!  I like hats, especially fancy "derby" hats, but I have a hard time finding them to fit my giant head.

4. Where do you fall in the birth order in your family? Do you think this has influenced your personality?
     I'm the oldest of three.   I totally think it influences my personality.  I like to be in control of situations and I can be bossy.  I also tend to be very maternal, which probably comes from having a sister that's so much younger than me.

5. Where do you think you spend most of your money?
     Currently, it feels like I should say on gas.  But really, I probably spend more at WalMart and/or Kroger, because my car is fairly easy on gas and I don't have to drive very far to work.

6. When you need to confront someone would you rather communicate in person, on the phone, by email or by letter? Why?
     I'm much better in writing.  I think that's a little cowardly, but I like being able to choose my words carefully.   When I get really irritated with something, I have been known to confront someone in person.  But that takes me at my higest levels of angry.  (And I have a long fuse about most things.)

7. Dodge ball, freeze tag, kickball or jump rope? You have to pick one.
     I'm going to have to go with dodgeball.  I vaguely remember being good at it, unlike jump rope.  I was actually much better at hockey.

8. I'm trying to decide what I'm going to do today, since I was up at the crack of dawn, even though I don't have to go to work.  I have the feeling that it's going to include watching a lot of cable TV, since I don't have it at my house.  Wonder if I can catch an airing of Swamp People?


  1. Ha-I have a big head too. We had the owners of a fancy hat shop in London speak at our women's club and they brought tons of hats and showed us how to wear them and they put different hats on different people to see how one shape is good for one person but not for was so much fun!

    Enjoy your day off!

  2. You don't have CABLE?! WHAT?! I guess it is probably much cheaper to pay for Hulu...especially considering that I watch about 6 of the 200-something channels I get. I don't pay for mine though, so I don't feel bad.

  3. I don't think that writing is a cowardly way to go. In fact, I think it's better sometimes. It gives you time to check your words and delete them, if necessary.

  4. Boy, gas prices do seem to be eating up more and more of my wallet! : )

  5. I have a BIG head also - and not in a good way ;-)

    I can't believe you live without cable - but then sometimes I wonder how much more I could get done if I didn't spend so much time watching TV.

  6. The wedding fever over here is boarding on horrendous! I am excited to see her dress.

    I am the total opposite I have to have things done perfectly otherwise I just stress.


Comments make my day! Leave me one here...
