March Hodgepodge Madness

Link up with Joyce @ From This Side of the Pond and join the fun!

1. What's the last job you did that required elbow grease?
~ Cleaning the interior front of the bus.  It gets soooo dirty and dusty from road grit and then there's all the stuff that gets tracked in on everyone's shoes.  Even the windshield gets nasty.

2. March Madness, aka the men's Division I basketball championship, is nearing an end. What sort of 'madness' has your house seen this month?
~ Well, it we didn't see March Madness.  Even though I played basketball in high school I'm not a fan.  I can watch it and enjoy it, but I don't go out of my way.  There really hasn't been any kind of madness around here this month.  It's been very calm.  (Why am I suddenly worried??)

3. What's your favorite shop for browsing?
~ IKEA.  I love looking at all their model rooms and how neat and clean and streamlined they are with everything in its place.  Sigh.  Something my home will never be.  Cluttered and eclectic and lived-in is good, right?

4. Is there ever a time when giving up makes sense?
~ When you are arguing with someone.  The more you argue, the more they dig in.  You will NEVER change their mind so it's better to back off.  Give them some space and time to think and they may come around on their own.

5. What's a song you love that contains the name of a city, state or country in its title?
~ "Amarillo by Morning" by George Strait.

6. When did you first begin using a computer?
~ My first computer experience was in one of my college journalism classes back in 1984.  It was (I think) a prehistoric Apple and you had to know some DOS to give it commands to make it do anything.  I would never have believed they'd be the wave of the future back then.  They were more a lesson in frustration. 

7. Did you buy girl scout cookies this year? What's your favorite?
~  No, I was spared even running into any Girl Scouts this year.  My favorites are Samoa's.  Mmmmm.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
~ I like chickens.  Well, I do.......and that's a pretty random thought.

Boy, do I love IKEA! Thankfully, the closest one we have is in downtown Atlanta, which is about a 45 min. drive through horrible traffic. Trust me, it's better that way! :) Happy Wednesday...I'm your newest follower!

Our closest one is on the other side of Pittsburgh...a good hour away if there isn't much traffic, but we're talking Pittsburgh and TWO sets of tunnels so it's more like a an hour and a half. It's a good thing here, too, or we'd probably be in the poor house. (at least it would look good!)

Thanks for visiting and following!

We are surrounded by IKEA's. Well, within 40 minutes either north or south...

Did I ever tell you about seeing the chicken cross the road in Mexico. It did, and we know why.

Love your facts. I wish we had an Ikea within driving distance! I love your random fact- I love chickens, too. xo Diana

IKEA is the best! I never ever learned DOS. Yep, that was pretty random.

I am with you - IKEA! IKEA! sandie

Chickens are cool. :)

I think that lived in and eclectic is perfect.

I hope that you have a great week!

I still miss Wild Thang (my wild chicken). She froze to death during the Snowpocalypse last year. :(

I liked your giving up answer much better than mine!
