WINNER! Congrats, Jen!  You won Christine Miller's All Thru the Ages


**Original Post**

Me and Geoff the Great were feeling a little risky yesterday — we snuck out and tried a brand new restaraunt.   A restaraunt here.  In Tennessee. Yep, you'd think we'd have learned our lesson: Don't Eat Out In the South Unless You Are Bodily Prepared to Take In Several Gallons of Grease, but like I said, we were feeling risky.  The place we went to was called Fuji Sushi.  Now, I try not to notice skin color and all… but I have to admit that you don't see too many Ja'pansies (as bobo calls us) out this-a-way in these here parts.  This small fact made our risky dinner date even more daring.  Honestly, the idea of a Tennessee Japanese Steak House conjoured up images of a guy named Jimmy Bob Joe in greasy denim bib overalls dropping rolls of Maki Sushi into a Fry Daddy. But we went anyways, and to our surprise (and delight), they had a real life Japanese guy behind a sushi bar making stuff fresh.  And even the ginger was the correct color (it's not supposed to be pink — I actually did not know that). 

So now I have a new favorite place to eat.  It's not Benihanas, but it's definitely better than Buddys BarBQue. 

PS How about another contest?  I have one of Christine Miller's All Through the Ages to give away (you Classical and Unit Study/Charlotte Mason types will love it).

Here is how to enter…tell me, if you could ask Hillary Clinton one question that you really truly wanted to know, what would it be?  I would ask her how much her head weighs.  I heard it's as big as a watermelon.  Honest, my dad met her once when he was working at the Embassy in Pakistan and he told me he never saw such a big noggin in all his life.

    what would i want to know

    I would like to know what it is like to know there are lots of people who hate her. You know? Sure there are lots of people that like her (not sure why), but she has to get up and face the day knowing there are lots of people that just don’t like her at all. A lady from church read the moms’ group the book “You Are Special” by Max Lucado last night. Poor guy only ever getting gray dots, I had to tune her out so I wouldn’t cry. I think Hillary would have lots of gray dots. I wonder how she feels about that.

    Anywho, thats what I would want to know. Hope I win!

    glad to hear you had a nice dinner.

    Our favorite grease-pit…er BBQ joint here is called Pig Daddy’s. Actually, we really do like them. The owners are really nice people. I found out that they got the name from a conversation between the owner and his daughter. He was trying to come up with a clever name for the restaurant when she asked him why they call police officers “pigs” (he was once a police officer).

    What I would like to ask Hillary? Hmmm. That is a hard one. How about, why couldn’t she just have run for president 14 years ago instead of forcing us to endure her husband for 8 years. We could have rejected her up front and maybe moved on to better candidates. She and her partner-in-crime just keep coming back like bad pennies.

    I don’t know, that seems like a lame question. I just don’t have much of a desire to meet her at all.

    i'm not entering because i already have one of these books and i do love it. but you know hillary and bill are from arkansas. my grandparents were horrified that bill might win the presidency and when he did they never got over it. if they were still alive today and had to see hillary run i doubt they would live through it. i don't think if i ever met bill or hillary i could even shake their hand much less ask a question.

    Can you ask her a question that is potentially rude? or does it have to be serious…..’cause I’d have to ask “What do you think your parents did WRONG when raising you, and what did they do RIGHT?” I think that could be very telling…..

    we get the way we are SOMEHOW…..What in the world must her parents think of her.

    I would ask Hillary Clinton how she survived President Clinton’s affairs. It must have been extremely devastating and humiliating for her.

    I really would like to win that book, but I know very little about Hillary Clinton. I would like to know if she knew Bill was being unfaithful, before the world did that is, and if she’s truly forgiven him or if it’s one of those situations where they’re staying together because it’s just less complicated.

    The bigger question is: Why would I ever be in a situation to ask Hillary Clinton a question to begin with??!

    I guess I would ask her what the population of her village is about now?

    Perhaps, however, if I was actually letting God be in control of my tongue though, I’d probably ask her where she plans on spending eternity.

    I want to win All Through The Ages

    I would love to win that book, but I can’t think of a single interesting thing Hillary Clinton could tell me. I admire some pretty silly people(Angelina Jolie, for adopting needy babies, Paul Newman, for donating money to charities) but I can think of nothing to admire, or inquire about such a gender neutral woman.

    Okay, that last gender-neutral comment cracked me up!

    I think I would ask her how she learned to act so well. She actually comes off sometimes as ALMOST sincere…very well done, really. I mean, you see her on tv, or a news program, and she seems like she means what she says, which of course, she can’t possibly. …Can she?

    I got some good chuckles over some of these thoughts and questions. I have to agree that I don’t ever really want to be in a situation where I have to speak to the woman either but if I did, I would maybe ask how big the village was that raised HER child.

    I guess i should enter this to try to win that wonderful book but I just got up and it’s hard to feel mean when first waking up. Maybe I would ask her what makes her laugh. That could prove to be interesting. Blessings.

    Oh…. and about Hillary — I suppose I would ask if she ever prayers for our nation or if she does everything by her convictions.

    Honestly, and I'm ducking here

    the first thing that came to mind was “Do you know where your husband is?” How ugly is that? I would never really say that and can’t believe that’s what popped into my head. I would never want to meet her but I guess I would ask her how influential would her relationship with God be in her decision making as President of the United States. I’d think I’d ask what her opinion on homeschooling is as well.

    Blount County has a very large Japanese population (well, “large” relative to other places in Tennessee!). We have Denso Corporation. There is even a Japanese school nearby! Funny, though, now that you say that, I can’t think of any Japanese restaurants around here (except in Knoxville)….

    Sushi is a new discovery for me, but I must say that it’s been love ever since. I particularly enjoy eating it in the Vancouver Library… sushi, books, and British Columbia… it doesn’t get much better than that :). LOVE Benihanas, even though I recently spent more money on taking my mother to dinner there than anyone should ever spend on food.

    What might I ask Hillary Clinton? Hmmm… I might ask her if she’s ever read my book :).

    I would love to win this book…

    but I honestly don’t know what I could ask Hillary Clinton. I could probably come up with a wonderful question but when face to face with her, would forget and say something less intelligent. I once practiced what I would say to Dallas Holm (who is my all time favorite Christian artist) upon meeting him and when I was actually face to face with him, I stammered, then cleared my throat and said something I’m sure noone has ever said to him before….”I think you’re wonderful!” sigh…those great things I was going to say to him just evaporated…so much for planning. Anyway, back to Hillary, I’d probably ask her about eternity…if she was to stand before God and He were to ask her why she should be allowed in heaven, what would her response be…

    Thought I would just pop in and say hello.

    Like the new look to the blog. Very classey.

    As for a question to ask Hilary.. hmmm…

    Maybe, Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal savior?

    God loves everyone right? even the democrats with big heads.. ROFL.

    Trying for that book!

    First things first – Our favorite Japanese restaurant is a little hole in the wall in Tipp City (about 8 miles from us). Even though this is basically a more rural county, we have several Japanese families here because we have 2 major Honda plants here – in Troy (in this county) and just above us in Marysville. Ty used to work for the Honda facility in Columbus for a while.

    Our FAVORITE restaurant around here, though, is Buffalo Jack’s. It’s a wild game restaurant – you can get buffalo (duh!), venison, rattle snake, armadillo, elk, ostrich, etc. The buffalo burgers are YUMMY!!

    NOW…to the subject at hand…What would I ask Hillary? “If you were in the White House and your husband got his life-long wish to run the UN, how long would it take you to take over the world with your socialist philosophy?”

    From one Ja'pansie to another…

    you had me rolling like maki sushi! We have the SAME dilemma here in DE. We have 2 “Japanese” restaurants but have nt been risky enough to try either…after all those great restaturants in Japan and Hawaii why ruin a beautiful thing? We’ll just cook at home. Matter of fact last night we had sesame chicken, wontons (not Japanese I know) and inari sushi…yum-o as Rachael Ray says although I’ve never seen her attempt Japanese food in 30 minutes yet…have you?

    As for a question to ask Hillary…it would have be to either WHY or WHEN…as in Why won’t she go away and WHEN will she go away…they are sort of the same question. I keep closing my eyes and wishing her gone but when I open them again …well you know…there she is again. With her big ol’ noggin of hers.

    Hi Jen, I like your new look 🙂

    I would ask… “Hillary, how many of the 10 commandments have you broken, and aren’t you afraid of ending up in hell?” lol… we’re allowed to be judgmental in our question, right? hehe

    I am in agreement with Jennifer. I can’t think of anything she would tell me thats interesting. I guess I wouldn’t mind knowing how on earth she was able to run for office in NY without ever living there.

    This is not an official entry but if I should ever have the misfortune of ever running into Ms. Know It Not, I would say nothing. My mother always said, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.” As I don’t think on my feet to quickly, more than likely I would make a fool of myself if I opend my mouth and spoke, only proving to the Feminist Beast that she was right in encouraging her husband to sign away my parental rights to the U.N.

    And the winner is….

    Your comment about her big head made me think of my nephew. He has been endowed with a big head since birth and aparently he started getting a complex about it because one day my brother-in-law discovered him trying to weigh his head on the scale. The problem was that every time he lifted his head up, the scale went back to zero so he never was able to find out how much it weighed. Poor guy!

    As far as Hillary goes, well I did have an opportunity once to meet Vice President Quayle’s wife once in high school but was so nervous that I threw up in the lobby office building in D.C. (great way to get past security!) Maybe I’d have more success with Hillary and throw up on her shoes. I know, not very Godly!

    In her book she said she didn’t know what was going through her husband’s head when he was unfaithful (specifically the most prominent time he was unfaithful, not all those other times). I would ask her if she has since figured out what was going through his head. It’s pretty clear to me what was going through his head!

    And of course it was Shawn Abigail who posted the last message about what was going through Bill’s head. Obviously remembering to sign my name is not something that goes through my head!

    You really got me curious on the head-weight, but I think I’d ask, since I really want to know if they really did take the silverware or whatever else of the removable items that supposedly didn’t belong to them out of the White House when they moved out. I have no idea if this is true or one of those unfounded rumors, but I really am curious.

    Since she’s for national health care, I’d like to ask her if she is willing to come to a country like Romania, which has national health care, when she needs surgery. We have been to doctors, hosptitals and even the emergency room here. Trust me, it’s a scary place to be.

    I don't want to meet her, ok?

    She and Billary have already invaded my life enough and have caused enough devistation in our Country. I would like to talk to all the people who voted for them twice and find out what THEIR problem is. Mr. Clinton desacrated the Oval Office, figuratively and literally. And to the commenter who wondered if they did steal all that stuff from the White House when they left, yes they did. But that wasn’t the worst of what they did, remember all the pardons they made at the 11th hour? That was just the icing on the Clinton Corruption Cake.

    I don’t want to meet her, I have had enough of her already. I do appreciate all of you who are praying for her and/or wondering about her eternal destination. Right now we need to be praying hard that her future destination is not the highest seat in our country.

    At first I thought you said you and Geoff were being FRISKY….not risky…whew, where is my mind!?

    Ask Hillary something? Hmmm, I’d just love to give her a piece of my mind! I’d tell her that she is a fake New Yorker. She’s just like Elizabeth Dole moving to NC just to run for Senator…a fake North Carolininian….we never see the woman around here….anywhooooo

    Ok, my question….

    “FBI staff have admitted your husband knew US military drones had Osama Bin Laden pinpointed EXACTLY on about 5 different occasions, yet he didn’t have Osama “dealt with” when he had all of those chances, thus saving the lives of almost 3,000 Americans on 9-11, the bombing of the USS Cole and sparing us another heart-wrenching 9-11 anniversary, why shouldn’t the US government charge him with dereliction of duty?”

    Dash has a big noggin too. It’s huuuuuge, like an orange on a toothpick! Have you seen that movie So I Married An Axe Murderer…at least I think that’s the name of that movie.

    As far as Hillary Clinton goes, I’d probably ask her:

    So how much money would it take?

    If she would just give me the dollar amount it would take for her to just disappear from the scene, I am absolutely positive I could raise it in less than 24 hours!

    My first comment ever!

    I have been lurking long enough.

    Like sagerats, my first thought was that I would say nothing, because I would trip all over my tongue and probably be a bad testimony in saying something not only unkind, but horribly unwitty. I can be such a dufus. But this question has got me to thinking (thanks!!) and since it cyberland, I can trip over my keyboard and clean it up with the backspace key. It still isn't witty, but after all, I am a dufus, remember?

    I would ask her:

    "If your child was still small, and if you lived in a country that required indoctrination of beliefs that were in contrast to what you believe to be healthy beliefs, would you send her?

    Neither did the home schooling pioneers, nor do we. Your village is not my village, my child is not your child."

    Speaking of villages, I sure am enjoying this one. I am so new to blogging, but am really enjoying feasts for my mind, and the laughs, as I explore homeschoolblogger. Is there a tutorial somewhere? ha ha. I have many techniques to learn. But I can now check off, "learn to post a comment".

    Why is this question breaking my heart?

    Perhaps we’re all asking the wrong question. When Jesus went to the well and met the woman there, He met her with incredible grace and mercy and not condemnation. He exposed her identity at the very root, then shared one of the greatest mysteries of our time: “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.” (John 4:23)

    Hillary Clinton is being used as a major pawn in satan’s plan to destroy this world, and anything God-honoring in it. She is more deceived than any woman I’ve ever known. (Remember the whole idea “we wrestle not against flesh and blood”?)

    It is from this perspective I would ask her these two questions: “Do you know how valuable you are, and how loved you are in the eyes of God?” “Do you know you were called “for such a time as this” to build up your country instead of tearing it down?”

    God has a plan and a purpose for her life, just as He does ours. We can tear them down until the cows come home, but will that change anything? The ONLY thing that will change her heart (and that of her husband) is God alone and the revelation of who she is in Christ. Prayer is what we need in this situation.

    Remember the apostle Paul? He sure did turn his world upside down didn’t he…before and after his conversion! :0) What a jewel she’d be in the crown of Christ…and what a victory over satan!

    If I ever bump into Hillary Clinton, I would want to ask her, “Do you know that God loves you and want you to seek Him & submit your life unto Him?” I hope she would listen :).

    Hillary Contest

    I would ask her: Exactly when did you lose your way?

    Was it in high school – some kooky English teacher with radical ideas? Or maybe in college – brainwashed by liberal academia? Or maybe when you were bit by the political bug? The one that makes you see government as a way to be controlling and manipulate people for your own agenda. Or maybe you’ve always been lost, Hillary? Did you grow up in a home with a mom who liked to be large and in charge? Was your Dad a mouse or a man? Did anyone ever teach you about meek and quiet feminine ways? Were you ever read Proverbs 31?

    Or, oh, oh, I know – you had a wimpy pastor in a politically correct church that cared more about numbers and programs than training in godly righteousness?

    Please, Hillary, tell me how you lost your way. I don’t want my girls to end up like you!
