Fruits, Flakes, and Nuts: The Weekly Hodgepodge

American Idol is back for a 14th season. Are you watching? Have you ever watched? If you were to audition for the show (or were made to audition), what song would you sing?
That last time I watched American Idol was season five when Taylor Hicks won.  It never was my favorite show, so I got bored with it.  If I were made to audition for the show, I'd let them know up front that I'm a better musician than singer.  But, if I had to sing an audition and could do any song I wanted, I would sing...
If I couldn't sing Gospel (which Idol is pretty snarky about), I would sing...
Oh yes, I would.  I'd get thrown out, but I'd have a blast doing it.
Mark Twain is quoted as saying, "If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first." So when did you last have to 'eat a frog'? Or two? How'd that work out? 
If by that he means "start with the thing you don't want to do, get it over with, and get on with the rest of your day" I'd say that's a choice I have to make daily.  Some days, the "frog" is an unpleasant chore or task that I need to get done, but I rather be doing something more fun.  Sometimes, simply getting out of bed is the "frog" I must eat.
If you were going on safari, what is the number one animal you'd want to see?
Zebras; I think they're beautiful.  C'mon, what'd you expect?  This is coming from someone who's never even been to the zoo.
January 21st is National Granola Bar Day. (I know.) Do you like granola bars? Chewy or crunchy? Your favorite flavor? How about regular granola? Let's exhaust this topic in honor of the holiday okay?
I hardly ever buy granola bars, but they're OK.  Not sure what "regular granola" is, so I have no comment on it.

You can add one item to your bedroom. What will it be? Keep it family friendly please.
Pictures on the walls.
What is one thing you've enjoyed about winter thus far? If it's not winter in your corner of the globe, what season is it, and what is something you've enjoyed about whatever season it happens to be?
The one thing I've enjoyed this winter is that it's almost over.
Insert your own random thought here.
I plead the 5th this week.
