Wednesday Hodgepodge 10/26/11

This is my first entry in the Wednesday Hodgepodge, hosted by Joyce From This Side of the Pond. Joyce provides the questions, and I provide the answers. Let's see how it goes, and when you leave this post, please check out the Wednesday Hodgepodge posts from other bloggers and consider joining in the fun.

1. What gives you goosebumps?

It's rare, but sometimes I hear a beautiful song performed in a way that gives me chills or goosebumps.

2. Halloween-are you a lover or a hater? Okay, that sounds harsh...Halloween-yay or nay?

I've always liked Halloween. It comes around at the perfect time of year, when the air is crisp and cool. There are also plenty of fun things associated with it, such as bats, spooky music, scary movies, costumes, and candy.

3. Can you respect someone you do not trust, and can you trust someone you do not respect?

Probably not.

4. Apples or oranges? Yes, you have to choose.

Apples are much more versatile, but oranges win the prize for taste and smell. I hate to peel them, and they have to be juicy and seedless, but if I have to choose, oranges win.

5. What is something you wish was in your town? (shop, restaurant, attraction, etc)

Ooh, that's a great question. Our Don Pablo's restaurant closed down a few years ago, and I really wish we could get it back.

6. What non-food item is in your refrigerator or freezer?

There's a bottle of fish oil supplements in the refrigerator. They probably expired long ago; I should check on that.

7. Are you at all superstitious?

Not really. I might eventually think of something I'm superstitious about, but I'm definitely not so superstitious that it affects me very much.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I think One Life to Live's Victor should have changed his name when he found out who he really was. Yes, I know he did what the writers had him do, so the writers should have had him change his name. Just about anything would have been better than being named after Victor Lord. I'm just saying.

Zombies are popular now, and they even have a few special days devoted to them. In fact, this past Saturday was World Zombie Day.

If you're into AMC's The Walking Dead, you probably already know this, but just in case you don't, this is important. The show returns this Sunday, October 16, at 9pm Eastern. The season premiere will be a 90-minute episode.

Speaking of zombie shows, the CW really should have picked up Awakening. I simply don't believe it would have had worse ratings than H8R, which has already been canned. I really wanted to see Awakening, despite the fact that I have plenty of other shows to watch.

I don't watch TV online and rarely even watch videos on the computer, but there are a few exceptions. There's just something about animal videos, and these are some of the cutest I've seen.

I started to search for yawning puppies, especially Frenchies, and found this photo. Now I'm off to look for some Youtube videos of French bulldogs, which are so incredibly adorable. With any luck, I'll even find some videos of yawning Frenchie puppies.
