Wednesday HodgePodge

1. Lake Superior University has once again published a list of words/phrases they think should be banished from the Queen's English in 2012-

amazing, baby bump, shared sacrifice, occupy, blowback, man cave, the new normal, pet parent, win the future, trickeration, ginormous, and thank you in advance.

Which of these words/phrases would you most like to see banished from everyday speech and why? Go here to read more about how the words are chosen.
Hmmmm...words/phrases to be banished.  I can't think of any to be banished, but my book group added a new one today.  Spewy referring to Rev 3:16  "So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth."  You don't want to be spewy.

2. Are you easily embarrassed?
Nope.  I usually do the embarrassing!

3. What is your go-to snack?
I like apple slices and peanut butter.

4. Have you ever been to Washington D.C.? If not do you have any desire to go? What site/attraction would you most want to see in that city? If you have been, what's your favorite site/attraction?
Yes, I've been to Washington D.C. We went for our Senior Trip.  Yes, Washington D.C. actually existed clear back when I was in high school!
I really loved being to be in places that you hear about everyday on the news.  Some of the places we visited were the White House, the Capital, the FBI, Lincoln Memorial, and Washington Memorial.  I could spend a week in the Smithsonian Museums.  The place that was my favorite was the most moving.  It brings prideful tears to my eyes even as I write this.  It was the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery.

5. sit ups-planks-lunges-squats...which do you hate the least?
You mean I'm supposed to hate one less than the others.  I'm an equal-opportunity hater.

6. What's a small act of kindness you were shown that you've never forgotten?
My husband marrying 23 years ago on Jan. 6, 1989.

7. Have you ever been a blood donor?
Yes, I have.  I can't now, unfortunately.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
If you mix red, yellow, and some green, you get a pretty good brown.

Here's a belated happy anniversary to you. May you be blessed with many, many more. You have a very pretty wedding dress. I like the lace at the top and on the sleeves.

I'm here from Wednesday Hodgepodge. Have a great day!
