Wednesday Hodgepodge - 5/22
1. It's National Bike Week...do you own a bicycle? When did you last ride a bike?
I don't own a bike, but I have been toying with the idea of getting one. If my ankle/calf keeps action up, maybe that would be a better option. I can't even begin to tell you when I last rode a bike, though. So, I don't think a purchase is imminent.
2. What's something you learned in school that wasn't part of the curriculum?
I have always been the queen of random trivia, so I was always picking up some extra piece of information. Of course, my second train of thought on this subject was all of the things I learned riding the school bus with a bunch of boys. Those lessons certainly weren't part of the curriculum, but did provide a valuable glimpse into the male psyche.
3. What's a food you've never tried, but want to try? What's a food you've tried and will never try again?
I'm not a very adventurous eater. I will often try things that I might not make for myself, particularly if someone I trust is cooking, but I can't really think of something I am just dying to try right now. As far as a food I've tried and will not be eating again, that's probably any type of seafood. I will eat crab in things and will eat certain kinds of fried fish fillets, but overall, I just don't like any kind of sea food.
4. Have you been more demanding on yourself lately or less? Why? Do you think that's a good trend?
This school year, I have been a little more demanding of myself just because I was teaching a lot of new material and new subjects. Recently, I've been a little less demanding. In fact, I am not working on anything school related until June 1. Having a couple of weeks to just breathe has been great!
5. Who is your favorite book, movie, or TV show villain?
Oooo...such a good question! I don't know that I have an all-time favorite, but one of my current favorites would probably be Mellie on Scandal. I don't know that she's completely a villain, but she has done some pretty sneaky things this season. That show is full of people who aren't completely good or bad, just gloriously ambiguous where matters of morality are involved. Are any of you fans?
6. How concerned are you about identity theft?
I don't take any chances, and I monitor my credit carefully, but I don't know that I'm overly concerned with it. It wouldn't be something I would want to happen to anyone, though. Friends had it happen to them and it was a mess to get cleaned up.
7. I saw this last question on Dawn's blog a couple of week's ago and asked if I could share. Everybody hop over and say hi, but first answer this...would you rather have an ordinary home in an extraordinary place or an extraordinary home in an ordinary place?
I think I would rather have an ordinary home in an extraordinary place. Homes are great and necessary, but to be in some exotic or amazing locale would be a lot more fun for me than to have a big, fancy place.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
So far, this summer has been so much fun! I'm trying to post a picture a day on Instagram, but I've spent time with my friends and family and just had a really good time. I feel so relaxed I don't even mind that I'm going to have to get busy cleaning this house soon!
