Skate On Over



Thanks to Joyce at From This Side of the Pond for hosting another great linkup for Wednesday HodgePodge!  This is my favorite post of the week - I love meeting new friends!! Here we go!!!!!
1. Speaking of skating...when did you last 'skate on thin ice', 'skate over the details', 'encounter a cheapskate', or just plain skate?
  

I skate over the details daily! LOL! I am a very spontaneous person and not very detail oriented AT ALL! It is actually one of those weekends I am working on in my life. I tend to lean to the "the less I know the better" side of life! Not good - I know, but I just don't have time to ponder details...HA!
2. What would you say is the biggest problem of people your age? 
My age is 48 - I am not sure how to answer this. I have friends my age that have money issues or health issues or children issues. I am single and live with my fur baby cats so I tend to just be grateful for everyday and make it the best it can be.



3. What's your favorite accessory? Is it something you wear every day, often, or only on special occasions?
I got a beautiful scarf for Christmas form my friend Kathy and it is really my favorite! I love it and I get so many compliments on it when I wear it! Here it is below...






4. January 20th is National Cheese Lover's Day. Are you a lover of cheese? What's your favorite dish made with cheese? Last thing you ate that contained some kind of cheese?


I love cheese in anything and on anything but my favorite is just plain CHEESE! It is definitely my favorite food! I buy cheese by the bus loads! I love a good Huntsman or Lemon Stilton and any other cheese also but those two are my favorites!! YUM!!


5. What's something guaranteed to make you roll your eyes?
Weather forecasters who say we're going to get a lot of snow. It cracks me up! I live in Pittsburgh and everyone is at work today saying we are supposed to get so much snow over the weekend!  I will bet we get an inch, if we are lucky, and it is gone by Wednesday. Meanwhile, the groceries will sell out of milk and bread! LOL!



6. Your favorite book series?

Currently I am loving these! I am only in the middle of book two Insurgent but it is awesome!
7. Why did you choose your profession?
I fell into my profession...I did not choose it. I graduated with a Psychology degree and really wanted to help people. I found out that I could not live on any job that was willing to pay me for using my degree so I got into Computer Helpdesk work since I have always been great at computers.



I have simply worked hard and moved up from there within my current company.

 8. Insert your own random thought here.



Thanks again Joyce for hosting this each week! It is a lot fo work I am sure and I look forward to it every week!

I cant wait to read everyone's responses and get new book ideas and new friends!!! HA

  2. Great colors in that scarf! Is it homemade? I've read all the Roth books. And seen the 2 movies. I think I'm odd though because I don't enjoy popular fiction as much as more obscure authors and historical fiction. My friends LOVED this series. (Maybe I'm just too old. LOL) It's a good series though.

    1. Thanks Jessy! I know...the colors are the best! I love it too and it matched everything! The friend that got it for me said she found it in a little booth at the mall and there is no tag on it at all. Again, I love your pet peeve! HA!
      Thanks for coming back and commenting! Have a great day!

  3. Hi thanks for stopping by, im glad you paid me a visit! Anyway I am sorry the Steelers lost, i thought they were gonna win last Sunday. ;/ I'm guessing the Patriots will go all the way.
    I love the Costco clothes, i'll need to look out for those tops when spring and summer come. i've been buying jeans and cardigan sweaters from them lately.

  4. I love that scarf. Great answers...smiles (and fits of giggles over the snow ---we live 80 miles from Buffalo and we always get the lake effect, always.)

  5. I read the first two in that series, but not the third. My girls didn't care for the third which I think has put me off. But not finishing a series is also a little annoying : ) It's spitting snow here now, but it doesn't take a lot to throw the south into chaos. We moved here from NJ so are old hands at driving in bad weather, but I know that's not true of all drivers here so I'll probably stay put. Thanks for joining in today-love your scarf!

    1. LOL Joyce! I visited a friend in Alabama once and it started flurrying and it was hilarious to see how everyone reacted. We drive through inches of snow at a time here in PA - well, most of us. HA!
      Thanks for commenting. Have a great week!
