Wednesday Hodgepodge 4/27

1.  What is something that bothers you if it is not done perfectly?

Not to sound OCD or anything, but it bothers me when a lot of things aren't done perfectly.  That statement is actually pretty funny, because I rarely do things perfectly, but I demand perfection in so many areas of life.  It's likely the source of a lot of stress.

But it really irks me when people go about planning their classes with little to no real thought/work.  I spend so much time thinking through lessons and trying to anticipate conversations, etc., that it blows my mind to think other people come into their rooms with reckless abandon.

2. What is one of your best childhood memories?

Saturday morning breakfast.  My grandma and grandpa would cook biscuits, gravy, eggs, bacon, sometimes sausage, and grape juice and my ENTIRE family (seriously, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.) would come and eat.  I loved it.  I miss it now that my grandparents are gone.

3. Do you plan to watch the Royal Wedding and when was the last time you wore a hat? 

To be honest, I really don't care about the royal wedding because it is the royal wedding.  But I do have a thing for fashion and weddings.  I mostly follow the hoopla just to see what people are wearing (particularly the tiaras.  I love a good tiara).

Sheena and I just talked about the hat thing not too long ago.  I can remember when I wouldn't buy an Easter dress if it didn't have an accompanying hat.  And I don't think my pink Illini cap counts (I wore it last week).

4. Where do you fall in the birth order in your family? Do you think this has influenced your personality? 

I am the middle child and the only girl.  I think being the only girl has significantly decreased middle child syndrome.

5. Where do you think you spend most of your money?

Walmart.  It saddens me, really.

6. When you need to confront someone would you rather communicate in person, on the phone, by email or by letter? Why? 

It depends on the type of confrontation.  If I'm exploding mad, I will totally just let it fly.  For the most part, though, I prefer to have time to craft my thoughts and opinions.  Email gives me that opportunity AND I can also give someone else the chance to back up my statements by bcc them.

7. Dodge ball, freeze tag, kickball or jump rope? You have to pick one.

Freeze tag.  Totally.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Dear PSAE, I love that you judge my working-my-butt-off-efforts on a few kids who are tired of testing, don't take the test seriously and don't understand half the questions.  Thank you for considering us when you made the rules.

a) now that you have a large and lovely home, I think you should reinstitute Saturday morning breakfasts, and b) I agree with your PSAE comment.
