Wednesday Hodgepodge


1. What is something that bothers you if it is not done perfectly?
I’m a stickler for proper grammar.

2. What is one of your best childhood memories?
My fourth birthday when my mother made me a cowboy hat cake, and I was in my cowgirl phase.

3. Do you plan to watch the Royal Wedding and when was the last time you wore a hat?
I plan to watch the wedding, They seem like such a nice couple. I wore a hat on my trip to New York State over the Thanksgiving holidays, but I usually wear a hijab (headscarf) when I go out. Does that count as a hat?

4. Where do you fall in the birth order in your family? Do you think this has influenced your personality?
I am the first born and hab=ve one younger brother (2 years younger) and a young sister (3 years younger). I think it affected me as I was the one who was always supposed to be responsible, and I was.

5. Where do you think you spend most of your money?
I guess on food. I don’t cook much so I eat fast food often.

6. When you need to confront someone would you rather communicate in person, on the phone, by email or by letter? Why?
I would rather talk to someone in person. You can tell a lot about a person by watching their reactions and the other methods miss the nuances.

7. Dodge ball, freeze tag, kickball or jump rope? You have to pick one.
Jump rope, but I haven’t done it in years. I loved to play it on the playground.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I really wish we would get some of the rain that the rest of the nation has been getting. It hasn’t rained here since January and we have extreme fire danger. Everything is dry and fleas are starting to show up everywhere. A weatherman and some reporters are doing a rain dance today. Please, rain!

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
