First Official Fall Hodgepodge

Happy Wednesday, happy fall, and happy Hodgepodge. Join Joyce From This Side of the Pond and many other quirky, free-spirited writers sharing a hodgepodge of thoughts today as we answer another unique set of questions provided by our link-up hostess.

1. What's one thing that's still the same about you as when you were young?

I still have blonde hair.

2. What's more important-history or science? Why?

This is a hard call since they seem equally important, but I think I would choose history. There is so much to learn from the past that can be used to improve the future.  

3. Lima, kidney, string, garbanzo, black or pinto-your favorite bean?

Black beans hands down, although I enjoy all beans.

4. What's something people come to your town to do?

Shop at the outlet mall.

5. When was the last time you were in a meeting? Sum it up for us in five words or less. 

I attended a meeting last Tuesday. Five words or less =  Better than usual.

6. What special event would you like a VIP pass to attend?

I would enjoy seeing the next coronation in Great Britain, whenever that may be.

7. What's one piece of advice you'd give a writer?


8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Sadly, we didn't make it to the dress like a pirate Guinness Book of World Records event I mentioned last week.  But it was fun seeing all the pirates walking around. I had a good laugh every time I saw a sign that said, "No Pirate Parking." Unfortunately, they didn't break the record, falling far short of the 14,000 people needed.

    1. I know! I cannot understand how some people don't like them!

  2. Hi Elizabeth! I wish I still had my dark brown hair...I seem to be getting grayer by the minute. Love that advice to writers. "Write" Of course!

    I am going to a meeting tonight. Hope it's better than usual too :)
    Happy Wednesday!

    1. I hope your meeting was indeed better than usual. I think your hair looks beautiful, sort of sparkly.

    1. Thanks, hope something made you smile a little.

  4. I love all beans - but I think black beans won and history! So you are still blonde? Do they have more fun?

    1. I really am a natural blonde. And you bet I have more fun!!!

  5. I just left the salon, so I'm also blonde : ) I was a brunette as a child, so couldn't use that for my answer. I'd love to be at the next coronation too!

    1. How funny that you just left the salon!
      Hey, maybe we can sit together at the coronation.
