Wednesday Hodgepodge

1.July 15th is National Give Something Away Day.  What can you give away? Will you?

I'll probably put some things in our ongoing to-the-thrift-store box.

2. Do you have a mantra? Please share with the class if you feel comfortable doing so.

This week it's "I get enough," courtesy of A Holy Experience.

3. Who does the grocery shopping in your house? How many times a week do you shop? Do you make a list or pray for inspiration in the produce aisle?
Whoever's home shops together, usually on Saturdays. I usually have a list of what we're out of, and sometimes also a list of things to get for specific meals.

 4. Is there a TV show you're embarrassed to say you watch? You're going to tell us what it is, right? 

We just watched a whole season of Hill Street Blues.

5. A recent article listed fifteen words we should eliminate from our (written) vocabulary in order to sound smarter- that, went, honestly, absolutely, very, really, amazing, always, never, literally, just, maybe, stuff, things, and irregardless. Of the fifteen, which word is yourmost overused?

Really. It is, really. Just is a close second.

6. So apparently dying your hair gray (in your youth!) is a thing right now. It's called 'The Granny Hair' trend. Your thoughts?

Why would I want to pay to do that when I could do it for free?

7. A while back Buzz Feed asked members to share the most beautiful sentence they've read in a piece of literature. A hard thing to narrow down, at least for me, but let's try. What's one of the most beautiful sentences you've ever read in a piece of literature?

"The mouse hurried to his safe home.
He lit the fire,
he ate his supper,
and he finished reading his book." Mouse Soup, by Arnold Lobel.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Too much random already going on today, sorry!

My mother will be 78 in a couple of weeks and she has yet to go gray. We strawberry blonds fade to mouse brown. I haven't decided if I like it yet, or if I might look better with snowy white hair. That's what my mother wants.

I'd forgotten about Hil Street Blues, although I don't think it's embarrassing as far as watching goes. I loved the show and never missed it when it originally aired. That was long before I had any gray : )

That was very fun to read! Watching The Gilmore Girls right now and on Season 4! My hair is silver grey at 60 and before 60 in my 50's. Have so many favorite lines from literature , especially Pride & Prejudice's first sentence!
