7 September 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!

 The Sweet Escape (2006)

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

1) This song begins with, "First of all, let me say I must apologize ..." Who most recently apologized to you?

Ned lost his temper the other day, with all the stress of the yard sale, and apologized.

2) Gwen Stefani sings that she acted like "sour milk on the floor." Is there milk in your refrigerator right now? What about non-dairy creamer?

Yes milk, no dairy creamer.

3) In the video, Gwen wears several different pairs of stiletto heels. What are you wearing on your feet as you answer these questions?

Fuzzy multi-colored socks.  I would kill myself if I tried to walk in stilettos.

4) Mrs. Stefani named her daughter "Gwen" after a stewardess in the book/movie Airport. Who was your favorite character in the book you just read, or movie you most recently watched?

The last movie I watched was an old (1952) Susan Hayward movie, With a Song in My Heart, the story of singer/actress Jane Froman.  My favorite character was her nurse/companion, Clancy, played by Thelma Ritter.  I find I usually like Ritter's characters!

5) Gwen is a distant cousin of Madonna's. Are there any performers in your family?

LOL.  How much time do you have?  My grandparents were in vaudeville (he an Irish tenor in a quartet, she a dancer); my father was, for a time, a bar pianist, and my kids have all been on stage for many years, some longer than others.  Jeri not only teaches music at Berklee college of music, but she also plays in pit bands for musicals around Boston.  The performing gene skipped over me.

6) In high school, she joined the swim team not because she enjoys swimming but because she wanted to lose weight. Are you doing anything (dieting, participating in an exercise regimen) in order to shed a few pounds?

Nope.  Oddly enough I have remained at the same weight for several years, despite my poor eating habits.

7) Before she became successful, Gwen worked at the makeup counter in a department store. What was the last thing you purchased? Did you buy it online or at a store?

I bought a pair of earrings on line.


8) Gwen has gotten a great deal of publicity for her romance with country star, Blake Shelton. What's your favorite Blake Shelton song?

I recognize Blake Shelton's name, but I don't know any of his songs.

9) Random question: Which of these compliments would make you the happiest -- to be called fascinating, or brilliant, or gorgeous?

Fascinating.
