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: So Into You (1977)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) The singer says that he noticed the lady in question as soon as she walked into the room. Tell us about someone who made a powerful first impression on you.
I guess my friend Peggy. When I met her at the
airport, after corresponding with her for a year, I felt as if I'd met
someone I'd known all of my life.
"Easily Distracted" is my middle name. I can't
remember the last "everyday chore" that I completed successfully in a timely
Briefly. I was there for a weekend meeting. The
funny thing is that it was the day the new airport opened. I flew into
the old airport and out the new. When I was going to the concourse
(which I swear is a mile from the front of the airport) there was a guy
wandering around looking dazed saying that he's flown out of the old airport
and his car was there. i didn't see much of Atlanta per se because we
spent the weekend in meetings.
Quietly. We didn't even go out to celebrate until a
couple of days later because I had a show to review that day.
But we had a good time, going to a taping of our favorite radio show ("Says
You") and then out to dinner.
Oh lord, yes. There was a beautiful old building that
housed the Newman Center at UC Berkeley. It had wonderful warm wooden
walls and a beautiful chapel. It is now a parking lot and the new
center is concrete and very cold.
I didn't realize #7 is the most popular number. It's
always been my lucky number and I don't have a clue why because it's
never brought me any luck!
One that nobody has ever heard of:
Like everyone else, I was so shocked to hear of Robin
Williams' death. As we learned more, his suicide made more sense, but
the world of comedy was forever changed by his death. Way back in
1969, Judy Garland's death was a huge shock.
Meredith. It is the name of the daughter of one of my
bosses. I know how to spell it, but I ALWAYS type it Meredity
(including just now!). I have done so for about 30 years.

One of my favorite things to do too!
I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
