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 Emotional (1987)

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


1) Whitney sings that she keeps her lover's photo beside her bed. What's on your bedside table?
I don't have a bed, so no bedside table.

2) She's getting frustrated, waiting for the phone to ring. If your phone were to ring right now, who would you expect to be on the other end?
Someone who has been trying to reach me regarding my car's extended warranty.

3) The video was filmed at Stabler Arena in Bethlehem, PA. It seats 6,200. As the nation reopens from Covid19, would you feel comfortable sitting knee-to-knee with a stranger in an arena like this?
No.  In fact, I'm a theater critic and I'm already wondering how I'm going to feel when/if theater ever returns...will I feel OK sitting in a theater again?  I don't know.

4) This week's featured artist, Whitney Houston, appeared on the daytime drama As The World Turns. She played herself, performing with Jermaine Jackson at the Miss Cinderella contest in the fictional town of Oakdale. Have you ever been hooked on a soap opera?
Back in the 1960s, I watched The Secret Storm and one other, the name of which I can't remember.  When both soap operas got to a point where the plot line that was coming was about people I didn't care about, I went cold turkey.

5) Whitney had a sweet tooth, and her favorite breakfast cereal was Fruity Pebbles. Do you often eat cereal for lunch or dinner?
I eat Honey Nut Cheerios a few times a week for breakfast.

6) At Whitney's wedding to Bobby Brown, her bridesmaids all wore lavender dresses and the groomsmen had custom made alligator shoes. Have you ever "stood up" for a friend or relative? If so, do you remember what you wore?
I've been in several weddings, but can't remember what I wore.  I remember what MY bridesmaids wore.


(the flowers were blue)
 

7) In 1987, the year this song was popular, Cher won the Oscar for Moonstruck. Her most famous line was, "Snap out of it!" When you think of Cher, do you first think of her movies, her TV show, or her music?
I've never been a fan of her music, but I think of her music before the TV show or her movies.

8) Michael Douglas won the Oscar that year for Wall Street. His most famous line was, "Greed is good." His character goes on to say that, "Greed in all its forms -- greed for life, for money, for love, for knowledge -- has marked the upward surge of all mankind." Do you agree?
Well...that's what we have in the White House now, isn't it?  Is it working?

9) Random question: When you woke up this morning, were you ready to get out of bed? Or do you wish you could have snoozed for a bit longer?

I sleep weird.  I go to the couch around 11 or midnight and sleep until about 3.  Then I watch 30-60 minutes of Morning Joe and then go back to the couch and sleep another 2 hours.  I get up, turn on the TV and fall back asleep again, sometimes for just an hour, sometimes longer.  At some point during the day I take a nap.  I always wish to snooze a bit longer, but my body doesn't seem to want to.
