25 September 2021

I don't know why but for some reason comments (even by me) aren't posting.  I'm not sure what to do about it.  If you post a comment, it gets emailed to me, but just doesn't post on the page.

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 qu
estions 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: Cardigan (2020)

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

 1) When she's feeling low, Taylor Swift compares herself to an old cardigan, forgotten under the bed. Do you store anything under your bed? Or do you try to keep that area clear (except for dust bunnies)?

I don't sleep in a bed, but on a couch or in a recliner, so there is nothing under either, except those dust bunnies.

2) The lyrics begin with a reference to a new phone. Do you foresee yourself getting a new phone before 2021 ends? Or are you happy with the one you've got?

I got a new phone a couple of months ago, so I'm happy with what I have.

3) She sings that her lover haunts all of her "what if's." Have you recently wondered, "what if?" What were you musing about?

I still wonder what if Peggy had told me why she ghosted me, but it doesn't bother me much any more.  Only took 8 years or so.

4) Taylor Swift admits that she rewinds after concerts by watching Friends reruns. What do you do to relax?

I take a nap every day around noon, always with Criminal Minds on NETFLIX on.  Puts me to sleep in 5 minutes and I sleep almost exactly an hour.

5) Thinking of TV shows, Taylor appeared on a 2009 episode of CSI. That series was about crime-scene investigators who use forensics to solve murders. Do you enjoy crime shows?

Very much -- Criminal Minds, NCIS, NCIS-LA, Major Crimes, Vera, sometimes SVU, Rizzoli & Isles.

6) Taylor grew up on an 11-acre tree farm where she learned to ride. Her mother was a horsewoman and hoped riding was a passion they could share. When she was 12, Taylor admitted to her mother that she really wasn't that into it and wished she could spend more time on her music. Her mother was supportive. Tell us about a tough conversation you've had that turned out well.

Ned and I occasionally have tough conversations that pretty much always turn out well.  I can't think of the most recent one.

7) She enjoys good, old-fashioned mysteries, especially those by Agatha Christie. Are you currently reading a book?

Yes, I am reading "Teacher" written by my friend Alec Clayton.  (I believe this is his 9th book)

8) In 2020, the year this song was released, Jeopardy host Alex Trebek died. The search for a new host has caused interest and even controversy. Would you enjoy the job?

Not at all, but I think Miyam Biali is doing a great job right now, as will Ken Jennings who will finish out the year.  I hope they choose one or the other of them as permanent hosts.

9) Random question: Of Superman's three superpowers -- tremendous strength, the ability to fly, and x-ray vision -- which would you choose?

Definitely x-ray vision.  Hmmm....can you turn it on and off?  Not sure I want to see everybody nude...



Survivor has started again -- a show Ned & Marta will watch with me.

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!  (Comments show up after I approve them)
