Hodgepodge Questions-Vol 109

Here are this week's questions for the Wednesday Hodgepodge...everyone is welcome to play along.  Answer on your own blog then scoot back over here tomorrow (that would be Wednesday) to link answers with everybody and their brother.  More or less.

1. Lake Superior University has once again published a list of words/phrases they think should be banished from the Queen's English...here's the list for 2013-

fiscal cliff, kick the can down the road, double down, job creators/creation, passion/passionate, yolo (an acronym for you only live once), spoiler alert, bucket list, trending, superfood, boneless wings, and guru

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.

2.  When was the last time you rode a train?  Where did you go?

3. Bagels-yay or nay?  Favorite 'flavor'?  Favorite topping?

4.  'Tis the season of awards shows...if you could star in a movie already made which one would you choose?

5. The move towards single gender classrooms has been making the news in recent months....what say you?  Do you think kids perform better if seperated by gender and are taught differently or is that discrimination?  If you're a parent, is this something you'd support in regard to your own children?

6. What's your favorite thing about staying in a hotel?

7. Do you have a 'word' for 2013?  What's the story behind your choice?

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

  2. Good questions, Joyce. Planning to participate tomorrow.

  3. I, agree with April! Looking forward to giving some thought to these and joining up tomorrow.

  4. Oh my these are all good questions. I better get to work and get them answered for my first Hodgepodge tomorrow!

  5. Looks like some fun questions this week. I look forward to seeing everyone answers!

  6. I absolutely agree....the world needs more love. I really enjoyed reading your questions and your answers, Joyce. They are always so thought provoking! I try to answer them in my head as I'm reading. Maybe some day I will actually type them out and play along.
