1. I feel most energized when I _______________________.
Am well rested and getting lots of things done. Well rested, unfortunately, doesn't happen all that often. My sleep patterns resemble those of a toddler with ADHD on sugar overload.
2. Where were you ten years ago?
Getting ready for our son's wedding that would take place in early August. Both physically and mentally...we weren't ready to wrap our minds around having a kid old enough to get married. It was a beautiful day, though, and the Roaring '20s theme they chose was a lot of fun.

3. July 17th is World Emoji Day. Do you use emojis? Which one's your favorite? Your most used?
I use emojis in my Facebook comments and once in a while in a text message. I don't know that I have a favorite, but I probably use the laughing ones the most....the heart is a close second.
4. What song would you put on a wedding DO NOT PLAY list?
I'm from southwestern Pennsylvania, land of of the firehall wedding, the cookie table, and polkas. Wedding receptions around here big deals. Really big deals. We polka, we do the chicken dance, the Electric Slide, the Macarena, and everything else that comes along (the Curly Shuffle was big when I got married). Most receptions have all kinds of music from polkas, to big band, to rock, to country. Sometimes there's a live band (not so common in this digital age), but most of the time there's a DJ and with WiFi they can fulfill any music request. I guess what I'm saying is that I don't think I'd put anything on the "DO NOT PLAY" list unless it was something with explicit, hateful, or violent content.

5. What deserves less of your attention? More of your attention?
Less attention? That's easy...Facebook and online games. More attention? Bible study, my blog (actual writing rather than just memes), and the house.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Question 5 was well timed. I'm looking forward to a productive day sorting through things, paring down some of the clutter, and setting things aside for the garage sale our daughter wants to have at the end of this month. I'm going to rearrange the living room, too, and maybe even bake something for dessert tonight. We don't usually eat dessert and it's been ages since I've baked. Tim will probably be shocked if I do.
That's it for this week and for the summer. Joyce is
taking the rest of the summer off...and maybe forever.
She's promised one more Wednesday Hodgepodge in
September and will decide then if she will continue or not.
Whatever she decides, we can all send a big thank you
for several years of Hodgepodge fun.
Enjoy your break, Joyce!
We'll see you in September.
