11 December 2021

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: Drivers License (2021)

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

 1) This song is about a girl who just got her drivers license. Who taught you to drive?
My father

2) Do you like your drivers license/state ID photo?
I don't think I've ever liked my drivers license photo.

3) Think back to the first ticket you received. How old were you, and what was it for?
I can only remember getting one ticket, probably in my  40s -- and I was not at fault!  I stopped at a stop sign 2 blocks from our house.  The stop sign was right across the street from the high school and there was a police officer watching to make sure everyone stopped.  He swore that I made a California stop, meaning that my wheels didn't come to ao complete stop before I turned the corner.  But I know they did because I saw him and wanted to be sure that I did everything right.  I've also had parking tickets, but this was the only time I was given a ticket by a police officer.

4) In this week's song, Olivia Rodrigo is brokenhearted, driving through her boyfriend's neighborhood, certain that he has taken up with the sophisticated blonde girl. When it comes to romance, do you have a jealous streak?
Not any more!

5) Olivia grew up in Temucula, California. Temecula is home to 40 wineries and dozens of tasting rooms. Have you ever attended a wine tasting?
Many times.  We used to go to the Napa Valley frequently.  My favorite winery was Christian Brothers because of the caves where the wine is aged.  I've also been in Temecula, but didn't go to a winery.

6) Her first on-screen appearance was in a commercial for Old Navy stores. Old Navy is owned by the same company as Banana Republic, Gap and Athletica. Have you done any of your holiday shopping at one of those stores? (Yes, their websites count.)

7) She went on to star in projects for Disney studios. That's also how pop stars Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus, and Christina Aguilera got started. Arguably the first teen star created by Disney studios was Annette Funicello. Do you remember her?
Sure.  It was sad when she grew up and got MS.

8) "Drivers License" was one of this year's most popular songs. One of this year's most popular books is John Grisham's The Judge's List. Do you expect to do much reading between now and the end of the year? If so, what's on your TBR (to be read) list?
I am reading Diana Gabaldon's Book 9 which came out in November.  It's a 1000 page book and I'm taking it slowly so I don't finish it too quickly (we waited 5 years for this one to be published!).  I expect to have it finished by the end of the year.

9) Random Question: What is the longest line you ever stood in, and was it worth it?
I'm not big into standing in line, but probably the year we took Jeri to Disneyland, when she was 4, it seemed like EVERY ride had a long line.  Ultimately they were worth it, but she was not happy having to spend so much time standing in line.
