The Island of Lazy: The Weekly Hodgepodge

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

Since you weren't Hodgepodging last Wednesday, how did you pass the time?
Getting dental work done. I would have rather been Hodgepodging.
What's the first word that comes to mind when I say marriage? Yes, one word.
Prison.  (Actually, the speech on "mawage" in The Princess Bride also comes to mind, but that's more than one word.)
Summer officially arrives in the Northern hemisphere later this week. Does it feel like summer where you live? Describe your idea of the perfect summer day.
Definitely.  It's been in the 90's and humid as all get out around here already.  In that, the South is always ahead of the curve. 
"Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability."(Sam Keen) Is laziness ever respectable? Do you have a lazy summer planned, or something semi-ambitious?
There's a difference between being lazy and simply resting and relaxing.  Being lazy is never respectable because it's refusing to do what needs to be done.  Rest and relaxation is respectable because it's recharging the mind, body, and spirit.
As far as my summer goes, no, I don't have a lazy summer planned.  I don't have time to sit around and do nothing.  I do plan on finding ways to have some fun, but there are no trips or anything in my plans.  There's no budget for that right now.  
Past or present, who's your favorite television dad? Why is he a favorite? Is he anything like your own dad?
Cliff Huxtable from The Cosby Show.  Most TV shows make dads look inept and stupid.  Not this one.  Dr. Huxtable is intelligent and funny.  He helps around the house and with the kids instead of just leaving everything to his wife while he sits on the couch drinking beer and watching the game.  Cliff is like my dad in that they both love music, both work hard, and both have a great sense of humor.
June 18th is International Picnic Day...share a favorite picnic memory.
Don't have one yet.
The travel site Trip Advisor lists the top five islands in the world for 2014 as- Ambergris Caye in Belize CayesProvidenciales in Turks and CaicosBora Bora in French Polynesia, Marco Island Florida, and Lewis and Harris in The Outer Hebrides (Scotland). Have you been to any of these? Of those listed (and if price were not a factor) which would you most like to book for a holiday?
Not been to any of them.  If I could visit any them, of course my choice would be Lewis and Harris in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.  When I do get the chance to visit Scotland, I may never come back.  :)
Insert your own random thought here.
Finished up this little ditty in the workshop today.
