Turning Green: The Weekly Hodgepodge

Want to join the party?  Go on over to From This Side of the Pond  for the Hodgepodge questions.

March is known as the windy month. Which of the following phrases best fits your March so far...'throw caution to the wind', 'three sheets to the wind', 'run like the wind', or 'see which way the wind blows'?
None of those really apply. 
Your favorite green food? Your favorite dish made with your favorite green food?
Spinach.  I love to make salads with it.  I cook it with other veggies and use it as a filling for omelets.
Ever been locked out of your home-car-office-anywhere? Do tell!
Yoda, Kermit, Shrek, The Wicked Witch of the West, Oscar the Grouch, The Grinch, or Mike Wasowski (Monsters Inc.)...of the green characters listed, which one's your favorite and why?
I've always liked Kermit the Frog.  When I was a child, I loved to see him and the rest of the Muppets on Sesame Street.  I'm a grown up who wants The Muppet Show on DVD to watch and laugh all over again.  And of course, the many Muppets movies make me like Kermit even more.  I still think he could have done better than Miss Piggy, but that's just my opinion.
"The first task of a leader is to keep hope alive."~ Joe Batten Do you agree? Why or why not?
Oh, I wholeheartedly agree.  The worst leaders are those who work hard to kill hope and are threatened by other's creativity.  Those organizations may make a little money or have mediocre results, but they do not grow, and their staffs have high turnover rates.  Been there, seen that.
Share a favorite song with an emotion in it's title.

The Happy Song

Sad Songs Say So Much.

What's a road trip you'd like to take?
Of course, taking a trip on the interstate (freeway, motorway) without crapping my pants tops my list.  I would like to take a cross country driving tour of the US.  I'm an American citizen, but haven't seen much of my country (or state for that matter).  I would also like to go on one of those European cycling tours once I've built up my distance riding.
Insert your own random thought here.
I'm waiting to hear from a job interview I did last week.  The waiting is grating my nerves.  I'm taking all this nervous energy and doing some rearranging and spring cleaning of my living quarters.  They need to hurry up and call before I run out of stuff to do.  :)
UPDATE:  I just got a letter a few hours after I posted this informing me that I didn't get the job I interviewed for.  Now, I really AM turning green...and red!   #@*&!!!


  1. Our family all loves spinach, well, except for our two year old. I enjoy it in salads and my favorite spinach artichoke dip.

    1. Hmm... I've never had artichokes before. Are they good?

  2. Yum. I love spinach - so much nicer than lettuce for a salad!

  3. So sorry the job didn't work out. Hope something else comes your way soon!

  4. Sorry about the job. Sometimes I hate when people say this but maybe it wasn't meant to be?

    Lucky you never getting locked out of anywhere!

    1. Thanks, Kate. Maybe not, but I need to find out what job is meant to be.
