Wednesday Hodgepodge

Hosted by Joyce
Stop by and join the fun! 


1. Aloha! On August 21, 1959 Hawaii officially became a US state. Have you ever been? Upon arrival would you prefer an orchid or a hibiscus to tuck behind your ear?

I've been once when I was 20, I hope to go back someday with my hubby and daughter. I think I would prefer a hibiscus behind my ear!

2. Since we're talking tropical...what's your favorite food or beverage made with pineapple?

I love pineapples but just alone not in anything.....wait maybe on a pizza or in a stir fry...Yum! 

3. Do you believe in soul mates? Explain.

I believe some people are meant to be together...how fate works in there favor. 

4. Share a memory about the house you grew up in.

I was just sharing this memory with Katelyn last week as we were carrying many things down the stairs...back in the day aka 70's I remember going down the carpeted stairs in a laundry basket....could you imagine today letting your kid do that? 

5. Are you comfortable with silence?

No 

6. You spot a giant spider on your bedroom wall...what's your next move? (all spiders are giant, right?)

Grab the vacuum and suck the thing up all the while screaming! 

7. My idea of fun does NOT include ______________.

Karaoke 

8. Insert your own random thought here

My only thoughts this week of coarse are of Katelyn...as a parent you know your child is ready for college but as a mother your wired to worry. I miss her so much but am so happy for her to have this opportunity and am excited for all that is ahead of her. I wish I could fast forward time a couple weeks and know all is good! 

Happy Wednesday!

Karaoke is okay as long as I'm allowed to be a spectator and not a participant : )

Hope Katelyn is loving college life. There are always a few adjustments initially but I'm sure she'll do great and so will you!

...and good it will all be. As for singing I cannot carry a tune. Kelly use to howl when I did. :)

If you don't hear much from her, its going well.

We would use a laundry basket to slide down our hill when we got rare snow. Redneck sled.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should boycott American women

http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:

1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)

2. False domestic violence (DV) charges (same as above)

3. False sexual harassment charges (men are now afraid to even talk to women in the office because all it takes is one woman to make up a false sexual harassment charge and then the man's career is finished)

4. Financial destruction of men in divorce courts through alimony and support payments (women get up to 95 percent of their ex-husband's income and savings, as well as the house, car, etc)

5. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden the fathers from having custody or contact with their own children

6. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result

99.9 percent of American and western women are liars, hypocrities, and criminals, who support women committing crimes against men. Women refuse to condemn their fellow women who destroy men's lives. Silence means consent. Therefore, American women support and enjoy destroying men's lives and causing men to commit suicide. Apparently, American women think it is okay to be a criminal, just as long as you are a woman. Therefore, is it any surprise that a huge percent of American men no longer want anything to do with American women, other than using them for easy sex and then throwing them away?

A few more reasons to stay away from American women?

-25 percent of American women take psychiatric drugs for mental illnesses.
-25 percent of women under the age of 30 have at least one STD.
-85 percent of divorces in America are INITIATED by women, thus women are responsible for the vast majority of divorces.
-70 percent of criminals in America were raised by single mothers, thus feminism is responsible for most crime in America.
-The majority of child molestation, child abuse, and child murder in America is done by WOMEN.

Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

Mmm, I love pineapple anything.

Tami said...

OMG! OMG! Going down the stairs in laundry baskets was the BOMB!

Veronica and Daniel said...

Vacuum the spider! I will have to remember that one, because I hate to feel the crunch when I smash them! Yuck! We LOVED sliding down the carpeted stairs on or in anything!

bill lisleman said...

soul mate - nah only checkmate
spider - ask her why she is visiting?
Now that Katelyn is settled in at school maybe it's time for the return Hawaii trip.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Enjoyed reading your answers. Going down the carpet in the laundry basket sounds like fun.
It's hard when they go away to college. ((HUGS))

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

Your pineapple answer made me laugh!

I love silence, but I adore the chatter of my kids even more.

I can't vacuum spiders because I think they'll crawl back out. lol

I'm not a fan of karaoke either no matter how much I've had to drink! The laundry basket thing is funny - reminds me of college when we slid down the hill near campus on cafeteria trays :) hope youre hanging in there!

Unknown Mami said...

You are a great mother with a great daughter. She is in a great place.

Kwana said...

Hope you are hanging well and now I'm thinking of Hawaii. I send my son off this weekend and my DD the following week. Hoping for the best.
