13 October 2018

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: Unbreak My Heart (1996)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) Songs like this are enduringly popular in part because each of us has had our heart broken. Give us the name of a heartbreaker from your own life.

Sadly, in my reckless youth, I think I was the heartbreaker for Randy and Keith, and maybe Greg.  Bad me.

2) Toni Braxton sings that "nights are so unkind." What did you do last night?

Watched lots of TV.  It was Sheldon Cooper night.  And I discovered Great British Baking Show on Netflix, so I watched a couple of episodes of that (not sure how I feel about the new cast)

3) While this song has Toni singing the blues, in real life her love life is happier. Now aged 50, she's engaged and has been sporting a diamond on her left hand. Do you believe that a bride is ever too old to have a big wedding?

Good heavens, no.  It's HER day, SHE is paying for it.  Let her have whatever is most meaningful for her.  Who is to say how anyone should celebrate.

4) Growing up, Toni Braxton's parents severely restricted how much TV their children could watch each day. Ironically, today Toni and her sisters participate in a reality TV show on the WE-TV network, so TV cameras are a big part of their daily adult lives. What TV show do you try not to miss?

Oh so many.  NCIS and NCIS-LA, Big Bang Theory, several medical shows, Criminal Minds, and most importantly, Jeopardy.

5) She is prone to dry skin and applies Kiehl's Hand Salve to her hands and arms throughout the day. Tell us about a product you're brand loyal to.

Nothing for skin and nothing really, though my shampoo preference has been for most of my life Prell.

6) Toni admits to being "a bit of a germaphobe," and always maintains a supply of hand sanitizer and wipes. What is always on your shopping list?

Bananas and Haagen Daz mini ice cream bars.

7) While she is not shy about her body, and has worn revealing outfits on the red carpet, Toni Braxton refused a 2011 offer from Hugh Hefner and Playboy to pose nude. What's the last thing you said "no" to?

Reviewing a show this week.  With our various maladies right now, this isn't a good time to go to most of the theaters where I normally review.

8) In 1996, the year this song was popular, Mattel introduced a Star Trek Barbie and Ken set. Have you ever fantasized about space travel?

Good Lord, no.  The older I get the less comfortable I am with just flying in an airplane.  I'll leave that to my grandkids.

9) Random question -- Would you (or did you) invite an ex to your wedding?

Well, we kind of group dated to the Newman Center at UC Berkeley before we paired off for good, so yeah, there were some guys at the wedding that I dated, but none I would really call an "ex."

Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us on next Saturday for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend!

Happy birthday, Joe!


 

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!

Apparently someone decided I should approve comments before they appear -- it wasn't me! --
so if you don't see your comment, it's because it's awaiting approval.  Sorry 'bout that!
