Random Thought Thursday

As I was reading through my weekly Hodgepodge responses from the opther people who participate, I came across this quiz for finding your "seperated at birth" celebrity twin. It was actually kind of fun. Here is my answer. What do you think? Is it me?

Your Results
Your separated-at-birth celebrity twin is: Sandra Bullock
All-American girl next door? Yep, that's Bullock -- and you. It's impossible for people not to smile around either of you -- your positive attitude is that contagious. We're also willing to bet that, like Bullock, you were a cheerleader in high school.

Even though you may have waved pom-poms, you're no prissy girly girl. You can hang with the guys, drink beer and get dirty when you want to -- but you're no stranger to high heels and lipstick either. This combo basically makes you every guys' dream girl (even if, like Bullock, you're not always lucky in love).

To channel your inner Bullock: Try a look that's dressy but not too fussy. Bullock always looks put together but still keeps an element of fun. A slightly messy updo paired with a cute dress and polished makeup (don't forget the lipgloss for that mega smile you have) are perfect. Check out some of her best looks here.

Weird thing you didn't know about Bullock: She loves horses but is terribly allergic to them.

Did you want to try and take the quiz for you? Here's the Link. Let me know who you got in the comments!

Leap Day Hodegpodge

1. The Hodgepodge falls on the last day of February this year, a leap year. How will you spend that extra day?

I never thought of it like that, as an "extra" day. I always fantisize about what I would do if I had some extra time. As it turns out I will be doing what I do on any other Wednesday. Go to sotry time at the library with P-nut and working on some craft projects.

2. What has recently required a leap of faith on your part?

Going with the hard questions again I see. Hmmmm a leap of faith? I think that the thing that is most current in my life involving a leap of faith is all of the housing stuff involved in our move to Missouri. But I feel like no matter what it will work out. I enjoy the moving process.

3. We're one week into the season of Lent...are you marking these 40 days in some way? Giving something up or adding something extra to normal life? How's it going so far?

I am part of the Youth Group at the church that I attend. We have put all of our Lenten sacrifices up on a poster on the wall along with who we are having help hold us accountable for the season. I have choosen to remove not only all profanity from my life, but also all of the substitutes for those words, so no more darn, zut, fudge, flark... whatever. I feel like even if you use a substitute your intention is still there and it is the habit and the intention that I would like to remove. Some of the youth have really gone above and beyond and are giving up things that amaze me, they are such a great group.

4. When was the last time you sat beside a fire?

When we went Camping in Zion National Park. It was freezing, well at least it was colder than this desert dweller is used to, so we all crowded around the fires to help keep warm. I don't do fires often because I am allergic to the smoke. It makes my asthma go crazy.

5. Surf and Turf is on the menu. Do you order as is or do you ask for just the surf (lobster), just the turf (steak), or a menu so you can select another option?

I like lobster, as long as it isn't a whole one. I have no problems with knowing that my food was once an animal, I just don't want to see it in its original form. So If it was lobster tail, I would eat it as is, if not just the turf.

6. If you could have any television program back, not in reruns but in new episodes, what program would you choose?

M.A.S.H. I think that this show could totally be modernized and put back on TV. I think that it should stay a comedy though, instead of turning into a medical drama which is what would probably happen. I think that the hardest part would be to get actors as fun as the first show.

7. They say an elephant never forgets. These days would you say your memory is more like an elephant or a gnat?

I'm still more like and elephant *knock on wood* and I hope to stay that way. I still have my blonde moments, especially if it is something you tell me before 9am. I am just not human before then.
8. Insert your own random thought here.

So many random thoughts, so little time. I don't want to make people's eyes glaze over with too much at one time. Let's see what shall I talk about this week. In the same theme as last month I have a new workout challenge up for March. This one is for arms. I hope that you decide to join me!

Muscular Arms March!

Ok, so spring is here, or on it's way depending on where you live, that means that it is time to start thinking about all of those styles that will show off your arms. Ahhhhh, wait, show my arms?!?!? I guess that means it's time to get them back into tank top shape. So here we go. A workout schedule for March designed to make every ones arms look better in those cute tops.
