1 May 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.


LOVE STORY (2008)

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

1) The lyrics tell us about a romantic summer night on a balcony. Does your home have a balcony? No.

2) Taylor Swift sings that her father warns her boyfriend to stay away, but she sees him anyway. Tell us about a time you defied your parents.

I wanted to read "Peyton Place," which my mother would not let me read, but my friend Marilyn had the book and I spent a lot of time at her house reading it.

3) The castle in this video looks European, but it's in Arrington, TN. Castle Gwynn is the site of the annual Tennessee Renaissance Fair. This May the festival will be back, and among the items food vendors are offering are Scotch eggs. When did you most recently eat eggs, and how were they prepared?

I hard boiled a couple of eggs last week for an egg sandwich.  I will add, though, that a friend of ours, who is from the UK, makes wonderful Scotch eggs, which I haven't had in decades, but I loved  them.

4) Love Story is also the story of Jenny and Oliver in a book by Erich Segal and a movie starring Ali MacGraw and Ryan O'Neal. Are you familiar with either the book or the movie?

Yes, both

5) Taylor was born in Reading, PA. which is home to the Reading Railroad, one of the four railroads featured in Monopoly. Without looking it up, can you name the two most expensive Monopoly properties?

Boardwalk and Park Place.

6) When she's not performing on stage, Taylor likes to keep it casual and prefers to wear cowboy boots. Tell us about your favorite footwear.

It's not my favorite footwear--it's my only footwear.  Birkenstocks.

7) Taylor's brother, Austin Swift, is an actor and producer who studied photography at college. Think about the last picture you took. Did you use your phone, tablet or camera? (Feel free to share it, if you'd like.)

I took it with my phone and posted it yesterday.

These are women I worked with 25 or so years ago in an ob/gyn office.  We met for lunch yesterday, my first social thing in a year.

8) In 2008, the year this song was popular, the Emmy Award winning show Breaking Bad premiered. Were you a fan?

I wasn't a fan, but my son Ned is a passionate fan and watches it so much that he has most of the dialog from all 5 seasons memorized.  I've become a fan just from having Ned having it on in the house so much of the time.

9) Random question: You and your best friend sit down to write the story of how/when you met. Do you think the stories would be almost the same or quite different? (In other words, will you two remember the event the same way?)

Definitely not.  She will remember meeting me at the Newman Center at UC Berkeley, I will remember being afraid of her because she was the grad resident in the dorm where I lived and I thought she was mean.
