Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. What's something you're never too young or too old to enjoy?
Dot-to-dot books. I find them so fun. I've discovered the extreme dot-to-dot books that can have well over 1000 dots a couple of jobs ago when I was working at a toy store. They are so fun.
2. Share one happy memory from your high school years.
Art class. I always loved going. I took 2D and 3D, I think 2D was more fun, we got to make paper, do batik and create our own stamps. When we made paper, I made a card with mine and then entered it in the Senior Art Show where it won best in show. I also took it to our county fair and then it went to the state fair. I still consider it one of my best pieces.
3. A nationwide strike of fast food employees took place in the U. S. last week...they're calling for higher wages and the right to unionize? Your thoughts?
Why not? I've never worked in fast food, thankfully, but I've heard stories. It's not one of the greatest places to work and I think they should have higher pay with all they deal with.
4. September is National Honey Month...what's a favorite dish you make or eat that calls for honey?
I don't eat much honey.
5. If you notice someone with a tag sticking out, a button unbuttoned, a shirt on inside-out, or some leftover lunch stuck between their teeth do you say something or do you keep quiet?
If I know them. I have a hard time talking to people I don't know. If it's a co-worker, definitely, we are the face of the library, so we should look good.
6. What movie always makes you cry? Or at least makes you feel like crying?
We Were Soldiers
7. 'Mary Had a Little Lamb' was written in May of 1830, and published in Juvenile Miscellany in September of that same year. Now for the fun part...create your own four line rhyme using that same tune.
That is way too much thinking.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I'm going to a Ladies Expo this month, I asked my friend if she wanted to go and she made fun of the name, like it's going to be bad because it's called Ladies. Sometimes I think people have a hard time trying something new and have to create a reason why they can't. I've seen this with my parents, too. We went on a cruise back in 2010, and we had to option of sitting with people we didn't know for supper, I thought it would be fun, but they never wanted to do it. I'm trying to try new things, it doesn't always work out, especially with food, but I'm trying. I wanted to go to the Ladies Expo last year, but my friends didn't want to go, so I decided not to. The other day I was downtown close to the place that was selling tickets, so I just decided to buy one. I overheard one of the vendors that was going to be there, talking about goodie bags, that made me want to go even more. Of course it's not free, because I had to buy a ticket, but I like goodie bags. At least if I go this year, I won't have to wonder about it in the future, and hey, it might even be fun.

I like goodie bags too, and think it's good to try new things, especially as you get older. Keeps you young!

I'm curious, what is a Ladies Expo.
My mom was a very fearful person and sort of infected her three kids with the fear. During the last several years I realized how much her attitude affected so many of my choices so I specifically seek out new experiences and force myself to try things even if I am afraid or nervous.

You'll love the expo! I actually like going by myself better, so I can spend time chatting at the tables with stuff I think is cool :)

I think it's great that you are going and not waiting for a friend to go with you! In the beginning it is hard to do things on your own, but in no time, you'll be having all kinds of great adventures and not even thinking twice about skipping it if someone can't or won't go with you!

I think I actually like going by myself better than with someone-so I can go at my own pace (rather than waiting on someone, or feeling guilty because they are waiting on me!).
