I'm joining Joyce and the gang for another round of Wednesday Hodgepodge!
1. So, do you like beer?
Ick. I have yet to meet a beer that I liked.
2. What's your least favorite repetitive task?
Reaching. My new job's front reception area was built for people who have longer arms than I have. Meaning I have lots to reach for, and I can't move any of it closer so it's easier to reach. Everything is on a built in shelf. So, reaching.
3. When was the last time you rode a bus? Where was it headed?
Hmmm, probably when I was in Florida for 9 weeks during college. I didn't have a car with me; I hitched a ride from another intern to get to and from work each day. I rode the bus on Saturdays so I could go to the mall to get out of the house. I'm inept at reading bus schedules so I was either really early or really late getting to the bus stop. I went to the mall because it was a "simple stop" meaning I could actually figure out where to catch the stupid bus. Plus I could do lots of window shopping in stop.
4. What song from your childhood or from your own children's childhood could make a parent's nerves stand on end?
I'd know it if I heard it. But its music by people I don't listen to, so no nerves standing on end.
5. The US Presidential election cycle is drawing to a close (can I get an AMEN??), and the third and final debate was held last night...what was the last thing you 'debated about'?
How pets can seem like children to some people versus pets are children to some people. It was rather heated, actually. People with children took quite a bit of offense to it, which I can understand.
6. Can a person make too much money? How much is too much?
Oh hell yes they can. As for how much is too much . . . anything over $100,000 a year (individually). I mean, unless you have some super-dee-duper important job or something. I mean, super-dee-duper. After that it just gets worse and they get better tax breaks that me. I'm poor. They tax me until I live in a freaking box under a bridge.
7. Pop-soda-coke-something else...what's it called where you live?
Typically we call it soda. Or coke since most of the restaurants serve coke instead of pepsi, in my area anyway.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I'm curious . . . why do some people add an extra 'ed' to the word 'spayed' but not to 'neutered'? I cannot tell you how many people add that extra 'ed', it drives me nuts. "I need to make an appointment for my cat to get spayeded." I'm just curious.
