Since I already had last week's Hodgepodge completed but never got it posted, here it is. This week's Hodgepodge will be posted later today.
Pokemon Go ... your thoughts? Are you playing? Do you even know what it is?My 19 year old son Dawson has been an extreme Pokemon fan since he was a kid. In fact, he was Ash Ketchum for Halloween when he was 7, and I had to make him a handmade costume because there weren't any for sale. Catching Pokemon with Pokemon Go is like his childhood dream come true. However, he has not shut down the rest of his life to play it. No one else in the family is playing it. Brynne would like to, but she the only phone she could use would be mine and I do not have unlimited data. I've had to break her heart and tell her "no". I saw a video this week of hundreds of grown men and women swarming through a national monument site trying to catch a rare Pokemon and was astonished at how stupid they looked. I guess it's fairly harmless, but I did stop to think that it could cause major problems of trespassing and such. If I had a Pokemon in my backyard would I be okay with strangers coming onto my property to catch it? Probably not! If someone got hurt while searching for it, they would probably sue me for their injuries! This is one of those cases where the law is not up-to-date with the technological advances and people are too stupid, frankly, to follow the law that is there.
What was something you collected as a child? Do you still have that collection? If you're a parent what's something your own children collect(ed)? Have you ever camped out, stood in a crazy long queue, or paid a ridiculous sum for a collectible?I wasn't a big collector, although I did have some china dolls. I do not have them anymore. Kyndal had some collections as a child but they were thrust upon her by family members. When we cleaned out our garage she got rid of all that stuff. Dawson collects lots of stuff ... posters, Pokemon stuff, Spiderman stuff, Game of Thrones stuff. He likes collectibles. Brynne does really collect anything, but does love her stuffed dogs. Eli goes through phases of things he is into, and right now he is collecting Nerf guns.
"Collect moments, not things" ... tell us about a moment you've added to your collection this summer.The hike that Rick and I took in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, was definitely a collection of moments I will always cherish. What a thrill!
What's something collecting dust in your home right now? Any plans to do something about it?Other than my surfaces that are always collecting dust (I hate to dust!!), I'd say my flat iron for my hair! This summer has been a ponytail summer. I fix my hair about one day a week. I really need a haircut, then I might actually fix it more often.
A favorite song related to time?
