Wednesday Hodgepodge: 20 May 2015
The Wednesday Hodgepodge is courtesy of From This Side of the Pond.

1. Did you make someone laugh yesterday? Was it intentional?

Probably, though I don't keep track.   I have a fairly dry sense of humor, which comes out all the time.  Yesterday ... I think I showed my wifetthis meme from Facebook which caused her to chuckle.

2. What's a simple question with a complicated answer?

My life is full of them.

Seriously ... I'd pick the question "what is a computer"?  I teach two different classes that give extremely different answers to that question.   (And next academic year, I'll teach them at the same time.)

3. Rhododendrons or azaleas...you have to choose. Are either currently blooming in your yard?

Flowers ain't my thing; I wouldn't be able to pick either one out of a lineup.

4. May 21st is National Waitstaff Day. Have you ever worked as a waiter/waitress? How would you rate the experience? What was the best/worst part of the job?

Never worked as either.

5. What fashion trend for women should be outlawed? How about one for men?

Hey, if I manage to get a pair of socks that match, I'm doing pretty well.  I'm pretty useless when it comes to judging fashion trends.

6. Name a writer who inspires you....now tell us why.

I admire the crisp, clear, witty writing of Aaron Sorkin.   I don't have formal training in public speaking, but I love the way he puts words together to convey an image or an idea.

7. What well known quote or saying sums up your plans for today or this week?

"Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." --Matthew 25:40

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Today would have been my sister's 43rd birthday.   (She died at the age of 15.)   I don't think much about her at all, but today I was struck ... I wonder what she would have been like at this stage of life.

I'm sorry for the loss of your sister. I think grief is a funny thing, and it sneaks up on us from time to time, no matter how many years pass.

The meme made me laugh : ) Thanks for joining the HP!
