Wednesday Hodgepodge--April 20

1. What are your plans for Easter Day/weekend?

     This year, I am going to my church, then driving over to my aunt's house for dinner.  I'm sure at some point, either Saturday night or Sunday, I am also going to celebrate with the other side of the family at my cousin's new house.  (Hello, Cousin, a faithful blog reader!)

2. Besides Jesus, what one person from The Bible would you most like to meet and why?

     I'm going to have to go with Mary, the mother of Jesus.  Her story just fascinates me.  Can you imagine what it would be like to be the mother of God's son?  Talk about pressure.  A close second would be Esther, because I found Beth Moore's study of her so interesting.

3. What is one modern day convenience you didn't have as a child that was easy to live without?

     I didn't have a cell phone until I was driving, and even then I only had it because my grandmother was postive I was going to be abducted or something and she bought me one and paid for it.  Now I see third graders with cell phones.  It's a little crazy.

4. Are you more right brained or left brained? If you don't know what that means there is an interesting little quiz here.

     I took the quiz, and I am 43% Left-Brained and 57% Right-Brained.  This doesn't surprise me in the slightest.

5. What is something you intended to do today but didn't? Why?

     So far, I think I have hit everything on my list.  But that just means that I have probably forgotten whatever else it was I should be doing.

6. Cadbury Creme Eggs or Reeses peanut butter?

     Reeses Eggs all the way.  (And it's traditional that I will still have some in my Easter basket too.  And yes, my mom still makes us all Easter baskets.  Don't judge!)  Cadbury Eggs freak me out.  I think it's a consistency thing.

7. Who was your favorite cartoon character when you were a child?

     Honestly, I'm not sure.  I wasn't a big cartoon girl.  I liked the Care Bears and Gummi Bears and watched a lot of Disney, too.  But, fun fact:  I went as Cyndi Lauper for Halloween when I was four, so maybe she was my real favorite.  And yes, here's the picture (Eyes closed to show off the fancy eyeshadow):
Well, hello, 1985!  So nice to see you again.  This really was one of my favorite costumes and I had that wig forever.

8. Looking at my calendar for the next three or four weeks makes me panic.  It does every year, but it seems like I have more things to do between now and the end of school than I ever have.  I just keep repeating, "It will all get done.  It will all get done..."


  1. I make my 20-somethings Easter baskets. They would be extremely disappointed if I suddently stopped. My youngest assumed everyone's mother still made them Easter baskets and she said something to a friend about looking forward to hers and the friend was incredulous. My daughter felt sorry for her : )

    Enjoy your Easter!

  2. Cream eggs !!!
    Cream eggs !!!! :)
    Its Easter they have to be eggs not peanut butter cups :)



  3. John, my blog friend, you have been misinformed. It's important that a woman gets the chocolate she wants, no matter its shape. Failure to comply has apocolytic consequences.

  4. You were and adorable Cyndi Lauper. Enjoyed your answers.

  5. I'm a baaaad mother!! I don't do Easter baskets anymore - I don't do valentines presents anymore - I suck as a mother.

  6. Fun fact... my great-grandmother drove down every Easter to bring me a basket that was filled equal parts candy and equal parts plastic eggs filled with quarters. This went on for a solid decade. When they passed away (sad part) I went for a few years without an Easter basket... then in 7th grade, my friend showed up on my doorstep with an Easter basket. Her mom had driven her over. She came to my house with a basket every year after that until we graduated high school. (Awww)

    But this brings me to my point...
