Wednesday HodgPodge on Thursday

1. Lake Superior University has once again banished a list of words/phrases they think should be banished from the Queen's English in 2012-

amazing, baby bump, shared sacrifice, occupy, blowback, man cave, the new normal, pet parent, win the future, ginormous, trickeration and thank you in advance.

Which of these words/phrases would you most like to see banished from everyday speech and why. Go here to read more about how the words were chosen.
There are  a couple of these that would be my choice to rid of but know many others that would like to keep them > The baby bump is one that I know many people that use it but just seems a little impolite to me. A pregnant lady glows in the late months and her stomache while it may look like a bump is so much more
The new normal is another one because it almost seems odd to have a new normal after all what was the old normal After al while does the new normal become the normal and the old become the past?
2. Are you easily embarrassed?

all depends on what is going on and the reason I should be embarrassed. I normally say and do things without being embarrassed but offer me them in a surrprise and you will see me blush with embarrassement

3. what is your go-to snack?

often chips and dip or crackers and cheese or spread

4. Have you ever been to Washington DC? if not do you have any desire to go? What site/attraction would you most like to see in that city? If you have been what's your favorite site?

I have never seen a real reason to go visit while I love politics I really have never wanted to visit but sometimes when they show how beautiful it is there when the trees bud and flower blooms in spring I dream about visiting one day

5. sit ups-planks-lunges-squats-which one do you hate the least?

dislike them all equally

6. What's a small act of kindness someone did for you that you've never forgotten?

We have been blessed and there have been many knocks on the door with little there but a basket of goodies for the kids one time a young man bought my groceries and I truly was blessed that time as well the most important thing is to pass it on

7. Have you ever been a blood donor?

no but my children have been I am scared of needles and therefore I have never donated but my children up to know that it is right to give

8. My personal random thought is that with 5 children in college and 2 grandbabies as well as a little brother and his family that I love all but wow I think I will need a vacation in the end
