to Saturday 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9
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
1) This song is about a girl
who just got her drivers license. Who taught you to drive?
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
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
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.
