Happy 100th Wednesday Hodgepodge!

This is my 8th time taking part in Wednesday Hodgepodge but it is actually now on it's 100th turn. Happy 100th post Hodgepodge. Here's to 200!!!


1. What creeps you out?

I think I could do a long list on this! I think my top three would be 1) when a person stares you out. I find it really creepy when you know someone is watching you from either next to you or from afar. It's one of the reasons I stopped going to nightclubs, cocktail bars etc because -men - would just stare and leer at you. 2) Rough textures - so dry paint, chalk, dry mud on your hands. Ick! and 3) Seeing people vomit. A lot of people think it's strange because I nurse but I really cannot hack seeing a person be sick. It's the action of a person vomiting and retching that creeps me out, not the actual sick itself. 

2. What's your least favorite candy?

Funnily enough American sweets. Particularly the chocolate. It's not chocolate!!!! If people try our dairy milk or our galaxy I am sure they would agree that's real chocolate. I remember when I went to NYC last year and tried Twizzlers - I spat it out YUCK!

3. Are you a fan of scary movies?  What's the scariest movie you've ever seen?

I do enjoy scary films but I have to be in the mood to watch one, which is not very often. It is not my 'go-to-watch' choice of film but I do enjoy them. I think the Paranormal Activity films are really good and they really scare the daylights out of me. Also, I remember watching a film called Seven and The Shining last year, they really messed with my head psychologically. They were scary characters that I won't forget in a hurry!

4. What part of life confuses you the most?

I think for me it's the simple question of why can't humanity not just get on with each other? Fair enough we may not agree but there's no need to start wars, kill people or say hurtful things. I think also in my line of work, particularly with a dying or severely unwell patient, I can't help but just be really confused with how unfair it is they are going through this. Especially, when there are people like paedophiles, murderers and prisoners getting parole early living a free life. It just is not fair and I get so confused with how life can work like that?!?!

5. Pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, poppy...what's your favorite seed?

Poppy! It's such a beautiful flower and it will always commemorate the brave soldiers that have and are fighting on the front line for us. 

6. Imagine your life ten years from today...what's changed?

The way I envisage my life in 10 years would be to just still be happy and healthy. Of course I like the idea that I'll have a house, be married, travelled a little more and who knows maybe kids? I'll be 33 but I do want to just be as happy with my choices that I have made now as I would be then. 

7.  What do you a) love the most and b) like the least about the Hodgepodge? 

For me, my favourite, is seeing other people's answers and whether or not other hodgepodgers think alike to you. The least is probably that it's only once a week- more often please hehe?!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

The Sandy storm is definitely making my heart heavy at the moment. I hate seeing destruction, lives lost and places ruined. It just makes you think how lucky you are to have a place called home, because thousands of people have lost theirs.

I like poppy too - but I like your rational more! Lemon and poppy seed muffins - mmmmm, mind you I do like sesame seeds on fresh rolls! Sandy also made my heart heavy - my cousin lives on the shoreline in Connecticut - luckily they only had water damage and their house is till standing, unlike some whose homes will have to be demolished. Happy Birthday HodgePodge! :)

I'm visiting from Joyce's Hodgepodge and thought I'd leave my fingerprints on your site!

I totally agree with you why people can't communicate and get on with each other properly. I read "The Shining" when I was a teenager and it took me years and years to get round to watching the film....too scary!

Nani said...

I love the Hodge Podge for seeing others answers and comparing mine, to see how the same or different my brain works from others all over!

I do totally agree with you on not understanding why people can't figure out how to get along. I mean respect others like you want to e respected and you don't have to agree with everyone and that's okay, they don't have to do it your way. It seems so simple. Why don't people see it?

I think it's funny that you don't like our candy! We do have some good chocolate... but I haven't tried yours. ;)

And, as a nurse, vomiting doesn't phase me. Wounds, though, like decub. ulcers... ugh.

I always have such trouble with the "In 10 years..." questions. When I look back to where I was 10 years ago (at 16!) I can't even fathom how much as happened. To think that that much will take place in the next 10 is a little overwhelming :)

Argh I hate touching chalk! It's the worst texture in the world! *shudder*
