It's time for another Wednesday Hodgepodge with Joyce from This Side of the Pond.

1. What's the last job you did that required elbow grease?

I scrubbed down the shower a few weeks ago.  Since we have well water, and about 3 - 4 people that use it regularly it definately required elbow grease.

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?

For some strange reason, this month my room has been in a constant state of disarray.  I can't seem to keep it in order.

3. What's your favorite shop for browsing?

I love browsing Etsy shops for jewelry.  Maddy and Co. is one of my current favorites.

4. Is there ever a time when giving up makes sense?

Yes.  When you're completely late for something it's no use hoping the event is running late, and still trying to make it.  Ask me how I know.

5. What's a song you love that contains the name of a city, state or country in its title?

Hello Seattle by Owl City.

6. When did you first begin using a computer?

1997.  I was ten years old, and my Dad purchased our family's first computer.  A little before that we had one  of the ancient ones that had no mouse and a black screen with only orange text.  I think the new one cost about $1700, which is crazy to think about since you can now get a good one for about $400.  It was mostly for business use, and I remember wondering if we'd ever have one for fun.  Things change a lot in 15 years.

7. Did you buy girl scout cookies this year? What's your favorite?

Sadly, no.  My brother supposedly did, but he hasn't gotten them yet :(  My favorite would have to be the Samoas.  They cannot be beat.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I've been trying to read more, and this book was an excellent read.  I couldn't put it down and finished it in less than a week.  And, it's a true story.

Hi Lisa!
So glad you're playing along this week! I'm not familiar with that book you mentioned, but I'm always up for a good read. I've never heard of Owl City before...I need to check them out, I guess. Hope you have a great Wednesday...I'm now a follower! :)

You call that disarray? Girl please! I WISH my clutter looked that good! LOL I liked Samoas too- they really are delicious.

I've never tried the Samoas. They look pretty good.

The book that you've read looks like it would be interesting. The building on the cover is beautiful. Studying architecture is one of my favorite pastimes.

Have a great week.
