for Wednesday Hodgepodge @ From This Side of the Pond

1. Are you more task oriented or people oriented? Elaborate.

I am definitely more task oriented. I don’t do people well, but give me a task to focus on and I am all in. If I am performing tasks, I don’t have to make small talk or participate in gossip or listen to stupid jokes. It probably helps that I am an introvert and live in my head most of the time.

2. December 15 is National Wear Your Pearls Day…do you own/wear pearls? If you’re a man answering the question, does your sweetheart own or wear pearls? Everyone share a ‘pearl of wisdom’ with us here today.

Oh gawd no. I have no attraction to pearls. I don’t even consider them beautiful. Not to mention they represent that lifestyle that I detest – the perfect little debutante. *barfs*

My ‘pearl of wisdom’ is think for yourself and do your own thing.

3. Speaking of pearls…oysters? Are you a fan or not a fan? If you answered yes, tell us your favorite way to eat oysters? If you said no, be honest-have you ever tried one or does just the idea of eating an oyster make you gag a little?

I love oysters. I can eat them stewed, fried or even on the half shell. In our family, Christmas morning is not Christmas morning without oyster stew. It has been a tradition in our family for as long as I can remember. And yet, I have no clue why.

4. Time Magazine has named President-elect Donald Trump Person of the Year. Let’s take presidents and presidential candidates out of the mix for a minute. If a political figure had not been chosen who would you name Man or Woman of the Year for 2016?

Sorry, I just cannot take politics out of the mix. The only people who made an impression on me for 2016 were political people. I wish it were non-politicals. I would have rather seen Bernie Sanders as the Person of the Year, but then, the press didn’t focus on Bernie, nor his message. They gave all of their air time to the Donald since he was already a celebrity. Why focus on a simple man from Vermont when you have a celebrity running for President? Bleah!

5. The Pantone Color of the Year for 2017 has been announced, and it’s a vibrant green aptly named-greenery. Your thoughts? Is this a color currently in your home or wardrobe? Will you add something in this shade for the new year? Click here to see the color.

I don’t mind green being a color of the year, but personally, I don’t like that shade of green. It looks pukish. *cringes* I prefer forest green. I won’t be adding anything remotely that color to my decor or clothing.

6. Today I’ve had too much________________________.

Pepsi Max. It is probably why I am feeling so hyper.

7. Share a favorite lyric from a favorite Christmas carol.

Happy Christmas (war Is Over) by John Lennon

So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very Merry Christmas
And a happy new year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong
And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let’s stop all the fight

A very Merry Christmas
And a happy new year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
And what have we done
Another year over
A new one just begun
And so happy Christmas
We hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very Merry Christmas
And a happy new year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear
War is over, if you want it
War is over now

Happy Christmas

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I really need to get off the ‘net and do some reading.

  1. I had to chuckle when I read your answer to #2. I am not a fan of pearls either. I tell my kids all the time to be themselves and do their own thing. Think for themselves and not the crowd. Its hard for a lot of teens to embrace themselves- quirks and all. It takes time but I always encourage my kids and their friends to be the best “them” they can be and accept each other for “them”…. hope you understand that jumble… 🙂
