Welcome to Saturday 9.
What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9
questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme,
and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated.
Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage
you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment.
Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate
rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!
Saturday 9: Best Day of
My Life (2013)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it
1) This song begins by
mentioning clouds. Do you see clouds in the sky this fine Saturday?
The one thing I love about living here is that on a crystal clear day, like
today, when there is a chance of rain in the mountains (2 hours away), the
skies are filled with fluffy clouds against a bright blue sky. It is
so beautiful, it almost hurts your eyes!
2) Lead singer Zac Barnett sings that, "Everything is looking up." What
are you looking forward to today?
Today not much. We are going to a play tonight, but that's "work" (I'm a
theater critic) and I'm not exactly looking forward to it. Looking at
my calendar for the month of May, there is nothing I'm really "looking
3) 2016 is not yet half over,
but what's been your best day so far this year?
When our daughter was here, visiting from Boston, and we went to our Mexican
daughter's restaurant, with Jeri and our son and his wife, for dinner.
4) The members of the group,
American Authors, met in college. When is the last time you heard from a
school chum? Do you know them from grammar school, high school or college?
I had lunch with 3 friends from grammar school sometimes toward the end of
last year. And, of course, I get together with Char (college friend) regularly.
5) One of the all-time
best-selling American authors is romance writer Danielle Steele. She's been
writing for more than 40 years and has sold more than 800 million books.
Have you read any of her work?
I think I read one to find out what all the hullaballoo was about. It was
OK, but not my genre.
6) Have you ever dreamed of being an author?
I am one, sorta. I co-authored a book, wrote
most of a second, and
write theater reviews for two local papers at the present time.
7) Do you have an e-reader?
I love my Kindle. But I also like "real" books too.
8) American Authors rang in
2016 in Chicago, giving an outdoor concert on New Year's Eve on a stage not
far from Lake Michigan. There are 5 Great Lakes in all, including Lake
Michigan. Without looking it up, name the other 4.
Huron, Ontario, Eerie, and the one that starts with S. (Superior...I
looked it up)
9) Random question: You see photos on Facebook of a dinner party hosted
by a friend. You recognize most of the attendees, yet you weren't invited.
How do you feel? Left out and angry? Do you wonder what you may have done to
offend your friend? Or do you just forget about it and move on?
I don't really think like that. Glad they had a good time, probably
relieved I didn't have to go (and happy that my friend realizes that).
