Wednesday Hodgepodge - November 9, 2011


If you're stopping by from Joyce's Wednesday Hodgepodge, welcome. If you want to link up or read other's entries, click on the logo above.

1. Of all the tools and gadgets you own which do you most enjoy using? 
I really enjoy my Nook Color and my smart phone. I most certainly use my smart phone more. Ok, so i should rewind - I love my smart phone NOW. I have an HTC Droid Incredible 2. I did NOT, however, enjoy my previous smart phone - looking at you stupid Motorola Devour - it wasn't very smart!

2. When (if ever) is impatience a virtue?
Ok, so I am going to tell you this, but you can't tell anyone that I said it. Deal? Coming from a girl who did NOT receive the gift of patience, I have begun to cultivate the smidgen that I did have. I honestly cannot think of any instance where impatience has served me well. Sssshhhhhh! Don't tell anyone I said that - you'll ruin my reputation! 

3. What temperature do you keep your thermostat set to in winter? Do you have another way to heat your house besides a furnace of some type?
 Right now it's at 60 something (Precious set it and I don't care to be chilly - especially when I sleep) and that's probably where it will stay. No other source of heat here.

4. Do/did you have a close relationship with any of your grandparents?
 My grandparents have all passed away, but yes, I was super close to my maternal grandparents. I wish so much that I would've thought when I was younger to ask more questions - pay closer attention. Hindsight is 20/20, eh?

5. When did you last have a family portrait taken?
 HA! So, I'm 33 and we just had a family portrait made before Precious and I married in October.

6. What does the word patriotism mean to you?
 Devotion and loyalty to your country - my grandfather was a WWII veteran and he LOVED this country and everything that it stood for. He didn't always agree with everything, but he was PROUD to be an American.

I think that we sometimes take this country for granted. Even as bad as some things ARE, we still have it so much better than the majority of the people who reside on Earth.

I think patriotism is simply being PROUD to be an American and acting like it.

7. Do you like to play cards and if so, what's your favorite card game?
 Not a huge card player. I did play a card game called Jokers and Pegs the other night and it was fun! Anyone else ever played? I had never heard of it until that night.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
 Things that suck about moving to a new city and state - finding a place to have your hair and your nails done! My nails look AWFUL! What's a girl to do?

I've moved a lot and a new hair place ranks right up there in my top three aggravations when it comes to moving. Good luck. I've been here two years and am on my third. Hoping this one sticks : )

Congrats on your marriage!
