Wednesday Hodgepodge #4

I think I'm starting to feel part of the Hodgepodge furniture! This is edition number four for me.

1. It's a brand new month...share one thing you're looking forward to in October.

I like the fact that October signifies that I'm one month closer to my Australian holiday!

2.  Is chivalry dead?  Explain. 

I think on some level it is! The whole knights, damsels in distress and princes are only things that come out of Disney  films to me. I don't think it is totally dead though in modern day society  I guess I just think it's a little more hidden!

3.  On October 2, 1950 the Peanuts comic strip made its debut.  Which character is your favorite?  Which character is most like you?  (Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Shroeder, Snoopy, Woodstock, or Pig Pen)  If you need a description click here .

I'd say Lucy, because I can be very bossy!

4.  What's something you're competitive about? 

This may be a strange answer but I am competitive about being correct. When I know I am right I will prove it til the bitter end. I know it's an annoying trait too but if I am wrong I will admit it. However, apart from that I don't think I have a competitive streak purely because I have big fear of failure!

5. October is National Popcorn Popping Month...are you a fan?  How do you like your popcorn? 

YUM! Popcorn is a must have at the cinema! I love toffee or sweet. But not salted!

6.  When did you first realize the world is small? 

I think on a weekly basis I say what a small world we live in. But I remember when I was 14, on holiday in Spain, and I became friends with a girl called Sarah. We got on well but when the holiday was over our contact ended. Flash forward 4 years later and I was enrolling for my nursing degree. This girl tapped me on the should and told me she was Sarah'!!!! I couldn't believe it!!!

7.  In terms of architecture, what's the most beautiful building you've seen up close and in person?

ooo that's a hard one! I would say the Trevi Fountain (at night) in Rome. It is beautiful! In fact walking around all of Rome is like an oil painting!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I got a thank you note from my Gran this week and she always writes in cursive. Do we do that any more? Because I certainly don't and I think it's such a shame because hand writing was an actual lesson in my Gran's school days. Now I just sort of squash my letters together.

I love that small world story! I wrote about a fun one we had back in March. It's here if you're interested -

It's nice to see you in the Hodgepodge : )

Oh, I can totally relate to the competitive when you know you're right thing! Hadn't even thought of it, but I TOTALLY do that too. It really annoys my Mum!

I agree on the handwriting thing. My letters are a mix of cursive and print, and while I like them, they lack the finish of my mom's handwriting.

#1 - Yay.
#5 - We popped popcorn with Brian the other day. He was so excited. But since eating one kernel that wasn't fully popped he now refuses to eat it. So him!!
#6 - Wow!!
#8 - I don't think we do cursive here anymore. My hubby doesn't like his writing but it is wonderful cursive. I'm thinking of adapting mine to include the correct b, p, r, s's.

My daughter loves POPCORN. There is actually a store of popcorn at the mall that I'm dying to take her into. She will just LOVE it.

When I was teaching (about 18 years ago) we used to teach the children how to write in cursive. I was taught to write by Nuns with a fountaing pen and believe it or not, still prefer writing with a fountain pen today!

Love your small world story :)
It is a shame we don't teach cursive handwriting (not in my school district) anymore :( How can one read a signature?

i love writing and my Mom was the one who made us appreciate it. I am not competitive however I always say "I may not always be right but I am never wrong".

Kristen said...

Oh my Granny has the nicest cursive hand writing.

Holly said...

What!? What kind of crazy person doesn't eat salted popcorn!? :O LOL I am the exact opposite to you. :P
