Hodgepodge Questions-Vol 110

I'm on round two of antibiotics as of yesterday, aaaaand...complete vocal rest. Complete. NO talking. None. Not even allowed to whisper.

It's really hard y'all, because I talk like I write.
With lots and lots of words, when only a few would do.
Oh bother.

Here are this week's questions.  Come back tomorrow because I'm gonna need to 'talk', and you'll want to add your link to the party.  Here you go~

1. The popular saying, 'All is fair in love and war' is originally credited to English writer John Lyly.  Is he right?

2. Are you a cereal eater?  What's your favorite kind?

3. A five year old in Pennsylvania was recently given a ten day school suspension for talking with a friend about shooting one another with a Hello Kitty Bubble gun (the gun blows bubbles).  She did not have the gun with her at school.

A psychological evaluation was also ordered and the incident was recorded on her permanent record.  The suspension was later reduced to two days and her parents are suing to have the incident removed from her file. Your thoughts?  (If you missed the story click here for details).

4. Whatever happened to_____________________________?

5.  January 23rd is National Handwriting Day, billed as a day to reacquaint yourself with a pen and pencil.  Do you like your handwriting? Do you prefer to print or write in cursive?  This date was chosen because its the birth date of John Hancock. What's the last thing you signed your name to?
6. Speaking of John Hancock...ever been to Philadelphia? Do you have any desire to visit the city of Brotherly Love?  

7.  Share something funny you've heard a child say.  

8.  Insert your own random thought here.


  1. Joyce, you're not supposed to get sick! :-) Hope the antibiotics do their trick and you're feeling better soon.

  2. Feel better soon! Drink, drink, drink and rest.

  3. After reading your post yesterday, I was thinking--Joyce never gets sick! I'm sorry the first round of meds didn't kick your "bug"! Hopefully, you'll soon be "fit as a fiddle"! Good questions, by the way.

  4. So sorry that you're sick, Joyce, and that you can't speak. Praying for your speedy recovery! See you tomorrow!

  5. Sorry to hear you're sick. Stay away from Halls cough drops if you want to get your voice back. A singer friend of mine was told they dry out the vocal cords. Also dairy products are not good either.

  6. So sorry you can't talk, but you can "talk" here as much as you want and I promise to "listen".

  7. Feel better soon. I have heard about a lot of voiceless people this year!

  8. I am so sorry you are sick! Prayers for a speedy and complete healing!!

  9. Sorry to hear that you are sick. I commonly end up taking two rounds of antibiotic when I am sick. My Dr. now either writes my prescriptions for 20 days of medication or makes sure it has refills. Hope you feel better real soon!!
    Looks like another batch of fun questions. See you tomorrow.

  10. Blech - no fun being sick! Rest up, friend!

  11. sorry you are sick!!!its every where everybody in my family has had it minus my parents thank god
