10 August 2019

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!

Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs (1993)

Unfamiliar with this week's song. Hear it here.

1) This is the theme from Frasier, a TV show that ran from 1993 to 2004. Were you a fan?

I wasn't a fan when it was originallyl running, but became a huge fan in reruns.  It was what I watched to put me to sleep at night and I have seen every episode many times.

2) The show is about a radio advice show host, Dr. Frasier Krane. When you listen to the radio, do you tune in for talk or music?

Mostly talk, occasionally classical music, but rarely popular music.

3) The theme's composer explained that tossed salad and scrambled eggs are both "mixed up," like the people who called Frasier's radio show. Which did you eat more recently, tossed salad or scrambled eggs?

I had tossed salad last night, with tomatoes and avocado and a delicious balsamic dressing I made.

4) Peri Gilpin played Roz, Frasier's coworker at the radio station. The actress originally cast was Lisa Kudrow, but the show's producers didn't feel she was "right." Being released from Frasier gave her the opportunity to accept a bigger and better part: Phoebe on Friends. Can you think of a time when a setback was really a blessing in disguise?

More than just a "setback," and not a "blessing in disguise," exactly but if it weren't for Paul's death, I never would have met Steve Schalchlin, who became one of my best friends and whose world kind of changed my life.

5) Dr. Krane shared his home with Martin, his retired dad. Martin's favorite chair was well-worn recliner, held together in parts with tape. Frasier tried to replace it by giving his father a brand-new, expensive leather chair as a gift. Martin wanted his old recliner back. Tell us about a present you either gave or received that wasn't a hit.

Walt is famous for never using gifts.  He had shirts from his mother still in the box under the bed for years.  I have rarely given him a gift that he actually used.  I discovered wine is a good gift, as is taking him out to dinner, but to put something in a box and wrap it up guarantees that I'll never see it again.

6) Kelsey Grammer played Dr. Krane on three different series (Cheers, Wings and Frasier) over 20 years. What job have you held the longest?

I was a transcriptionist for a local psychiatrist.  It was an "extra" job that I did nights after my regular job.  I worked for him for 30 years.  (He's the guy who recommended the home where my mother is now living, and I will be forever grateful!)

7) Before he found success on Cheers, Grammer played bit parts on the daytime dramas Ryan's World and Another World. Have you ever followed a soap opera?

In the mid-late 60s, I followed three soap operas (Another World was one of them).  Then at one point all three were at places with story lines I was not interested in and I quit cold turkey. 

8) In addition to work in front of the camera, Grammer has done voice over work on commercials for Dr. Pepper and Cheerios. Are either of those products in your kitchen right now?

Dr. Pepper--NEVER.  Cheerios occasionally, though I don't think there is any box in the kitchen right now.

9) Random question: You're invited to a party where dinner is served buffet style. There's spaghetti with tomato sauce, barbecue spare ribs and buffalo wings. When the evening is over, how likely are you to have a food stain on your clothes?

Heck, I'll have food stains before I find a place to sit down!



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