Wednesday Hodgepodge


I'm awake stupidly early and have no desire to run.
So, I'm eating cheese.
and french fried onions that were supposed to be for thanksgiving.
and drinking iced tea.
and doing the Wednesday Hodgepodge.



1) Are you more like your mom or dad?

Growing up everyone said I was like dad:
  • artistic
  • moody
  • bad at math
But as I've aged I'm DEF. more my Momma:
  • outgoing
  • a doer
  • a cooker
  • a lover of weird food and wine
  • ready to try anything
  • her physical twin
  • lover of fashion
  • forgetful
  • helps everyone
  • says YES! to any request
2) Do you like roller coasters?

Not so much.
I like the old wooden ones that DON'T, I repeat DON'T go upside down.
My favorite two are:
  • The Gemini at Cedar Park. My cousin Emily and I must have rode that 385204957304957409358403958 times one summer.
  • The Raven at Holiday World
Anyone that knows me knows that I DESPISE large crowds.
They make me very nervous.
but...
I do LOVE Holiday World!

3) How did you name your blog and do you now wish you had thought about it maybe another five minutes before hitting publish? Would you change your blog title if it were not a huge pain in the derriere? (French makes everything sound a little nicer doesn't it?)

Whenever I make Little O pancakes I add a couple drops of red food coloring which makes the pancakes pink.
Hence my blog name.
and I love my blog name.
It fits me.


4. What is the best wedding gift you received? Not married? Didn't get any gifts? Then what is the best wedding gift you've ever given?

I've been married once so far.
It was a random/crazy/instant/crazy idea.
Cause ya'll know I do things like that.
But... the best gift was actually from my friend Jas.
We had dinner at the Irish Lion after the ceremony at City Hall.
Then we had a "reception" at Nick's Bar in Bloomington, IN.
When we got to Nicks Jas had made confetti cupcakes.
(My favorite)
In all the rush I hadn't thought about a wedding "cake".
But she remembered.
On the day my Ex and I divorced we ate the frozen cupcake we had saved.
HAHAHAHAHA!
:)
I can laugh now but am still greatful for Jas's kind thought.

5. What bill do you least like to pay?

My stinking mortgage because it drains my bank account the most significantly.
I hate seeing 800 just gone.
Granted I have a house/roof/kitchen/bedroom/shower/water/laundry/garage/big yard/garden because of that 800 but sheesh!

6. What bill do you least like to pay?

Sadly, I think I'm somewhere in between.
It just depends on the day/my mood/and the situation.

7. What is your favorite word? Okay okay, calm down. How about one of your favorite words?

galoshes!
It cracks me up.
I'm giggling now.
seriously.
giggling.

8. Insert your own random thought here-

  • I love my hour every morning that I get to myself. It's all I get that doesn't involve another human being.
    I do what I want (granted that is usually a shower/making breaky/doing work before going to work/folding laundry) but sometimes I drink tea and read some of a magazine or I just blog or I sit on my front porch.
  • I HATE INSURANCE COMPANIES!
  • I love the sound of Little O's laugh.
  • I need to go wake up Little O right now for a tubby/breaky/clothes/sippy vup/shoes/jacket/car seat/Cede Cedes. Ugh..Here we go again...
