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 to answer the questions, however, and here is today's questions!
Saturday 9: Don't Talk to Strangers (1982)
1) When did you recently have a conversation with a complete stranger? What did you two discuss?
A guy recently won an award for designing
a set. I called to interview him about the award and his set
design. Kind of fascinating, actually. He designed the
set so it could be easily used for two different productions, by

Yes, we have a landline and yes, there is an extension in two of the
I've always been trusting.

My parents moved into a flat in San Francisco in 1942, when
my mother was pregnant with me. They moved out into their
first home sometime after 1970, after Jeri was born. So
no, "moving" was definitely not a part of my growing-up
Rarely. I don't really know the finer points of the game, but if I find teams like Brasil or Australia playing, I might watch a bit of a game. Or if two teams I don't know at all are very close in scoring, I might watch, not cheering for either, but wondering how it's all going to end.
7) "Smiley," the first emoticon, was introduced in 1982. Do you use emoticons in your communication? Or do you avoid them?
I use them sometimes.
8) The Vietnam Memorial was dedicated in Washington, DC, in 1982. Do you know any veterans of that conflict? If so, tell us about him or her.
When we were at UC Berkeley, there was a kid who was a member of the Newman Club who was one of the first to be killed. I didn't know him and don't remember his name. Walt remembers his name, I know.
9) Random Question: Your friends are throwing a birthday "roast" in your honor. Which one quality of yours are you sure will be singled out for laughs?
My photo taking and journal writing, I'll bet. I have been the chronicl-er of our lives forever.
