21 October 2017
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: Voices Carry (1985)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
This song was chosen because October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Please share this link to The National Domestic Violence Hotline. Let's spread the word that there's help out there.
1) In this song, a woman is "hushed" by her lover. When were you last told to "keep it down?"
I can't remember, but it
would be some time when I had the TV volume too high. Now that
I have hearing aids, I don't get that complaint much any more
(unless I've forgotten to put the devices in my ears)
Oh good lord, I'll cry
in front of anyone. After two memorial services for our sons
where most people in town came for each, I have no qualms about
tearing up and boo-hooing in front
VERY RARELY, I forget,
but as a theater critic, who attends at least one theatrical program
a week, I am very good about remembering to turn off the phone!
Well, back in 1975 or
so, the Lamplighters sent
out a letter to all subscribers saying that someone was going to put
together a book celebrating the company's
25th anniversary. Even though we
now lived 80 miles away from San Francisco, I took the plunge and
volunteered, along with one other woman. The three of us got
that book published in 1977 and it ended up being the project that
changed my life, introduced me to people who became my best friends,
and set the principal activity of my life for the next decade.
I went to a Catholic high school in the 1950s. Does that answer your question?
6) Aimee has been on the road through 2017 and, like most artists, sells tour merchandise. Her line includes reusable tote bags. Do you bring your own bag to the grocery store?
Sometimes I forget to bring them into the store, but there are big
signs everywhere reminding people to bring their bags.
7) Aimee has tried her hand at acting and appeared on Buffy, The Vampire Slayer. From Dracula to Barnabas Collins to Lestat, vampires are a popular culture staple (especially in October). What do you suppose accounts for their enduring popularity?
Not only do I not
understand their enduring popularity, I can't understand why
they are popular to begin with. I have never been a fan.
No. In 1985, I was herding young children and didn't pay attention to songs that had massive commercial successl.
9) Random question: In which race would you do better -- the Iditarod, with sled dogs in Nome, or speeding in a car at 200+ mph at the Indianapolis 500?
Good lord. I'm one of
those people who drive the speed limit or under and get very nervous
when a car is going too fast. Also I love dogs. There is
no question about my participating in the Iditarod. I'd come
in last, of course, but I'd enjoy myself, if I could find a
way to stay warm.
