Funnest Meme this Side of the Mississippi

Or maybe it's the funnest one this side of the Pond?

How was that for a smooth-sailing segue into Joyce's questions that mention rivers?



I really don't have time for this, but it's a bit on the addictive side, so I'm diving in.
I'm in it "hook, line, and sinker." 

Enough already! Pretty soon you're going to tuna me out. 

I am going shallow with my word count and probably my thought process as well. 
You've been warned. 
Or blessed. 
Take your pick. 

My word count limit is FIVE since this Hodgepodge is 
Wednesday, June Fifth.

5 instructions: 

Read this post.
Comment. (J'adore le river des comments.)
Click on the cute Hodgepodge button.
Read Joyce's. 
Join the fun!

1. Have you learned more from success or failure? Explain.

Failure.
"Stupid is as stupid _______."

2.  What did you call your grandparents when you were growing up? If you have children,/ what do they call your parents? If you have grandchildren, what do they call you?

Grandma/Grandpa/Granny.
Ima/Pappaw.
N/A.  :(

3.  You're invited to a luau.  In keeping with that theme, what dish will you bring to share? 

How about pineapple upsidedown cake?

4. Besides Jesus, what one person's life story do you think everyone should know about?

My own. I blog, don't I?

5. "Don't sweat the small stuff." Agree or Disagree? Why?

Agree in theory, not practice.

6.  June is National Rivers Month. When were you last on a river? What's the prettiest river you've ever seen? What's a river you'd like to see? 

Unsure.  
Prettiest?  Potomac
Ugliest? Joan. 
Seine? Nile.  

(That doesn't read well. Looks like the River Senile!)

7.  Speaking of rivers-paddling, fishing, swimming, or bird watching safely from the shore? Which activity would you choose? Yes-you have to choose. 

Fishing with creatures who talk.



8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I'm changing answer 4.  Joseph's.

I like your random thought....not necessarily your choice [tho a good one] but for the fact that you have changed your mind and used that as a random thought.

Senile...River Senile...all I have to do is look in the mirror and see that. rofl

Susan said...

Haha. I'm trying to avoid the River of Senile. :) But I would like to see the Seine. Happy Wednesday.

Dawn Saros-Kirk said...

Haha-that cartoon is great! And I agree with your #5 answer, sometimes it is much easier in theory than practice. Have a fabulous day!

Courtney said...

Love the cartoon :)

And, Pineapple Upsidedown Cake would be DELICIOUS right now :) Hope you have an excellent day :)

Kathy said...

I enjoyed your short but fun answers this week! You're right, the Hodgepodge is addictive :)

Laura Anne said...

LOL To your answer to number 4! And love the cartoon!!

I agree the River of Senile is not a pretty place. I prefer the stream of self!

Lea Culp said...

One thing for sure, you are NEVER EVER boring. I love stopping by because I always leave with a smile!

I'm sure life is quite busy at the moment, but I"m glad you joined the HP anyway : ) Thanks for the prayers for my daughter regarding a job...she is moving out of SC when she finishes her MA. She and her boyfriend have been long distance for quite a long while now. He has a great job in his home state and she's moving there. She has a good friend in that town as well, and they're going to get an apt together. The logistics threaten to overwhelm me on a pretty regular basis (her-daily!) but God has worked out one piece in a surprising way, so I just keep praying about all the 'small stuff' : ) She needs to find a job-the rest really is small.

Angie said...

Fun answers! Enjoyed the cartoon too.

Joseph as in the dreamer? And the coat? (Before Dolly Parton.) Good pick. I'd have trouble narrowing that down to one choice!
