1 January 2022

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 to answer the questions, however, and here are today's questions!

Saturday 9: The Promise of a New Day (1991)

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

Welcome to the first Saturday 9 of 2022.

1) In this song, Paula Abdul celebrates the promise of a new day. Here at Saturday 9, we're celebrating the promise of a new year. What do you hope 2022 will bring?
The death of all versions of the coronavirus (not likely!)  Barring that, retribution for all those involved in the January 6 rioting, particularly the guy at the top (also not likely)

2) She sings that we should see the wisdom from mistakes of the past. What wisdom did you gain in 2021?
I learned  a lot about pineapple

3) What is something you'd like to spend more time doing in 2022?
Reading.  Going to try reading 50 books again this year.

4) Paula Abdul was once a "Laker Girl" and performed at L.A. Laker games. Do you have a favorite NBA team?
I don't follow basketball.  I sorta follow baseball (Giants) and football (49ers), but not passionately.

5) In 2009, she hosted RAH!, an elite cheer leading competition. Do you remember any cheers from your school years?
I think we might have had cheers, but I don't remember them.  they would have been for volleyball.  i went to a girls school and volleyball and basketball were the only teams we had.

6) While famous for performing, Paula has arguably been more successful for her work behind the scenes, winning an Emmy for her choreography. Are you comfortable being the center of attention? Or would you rather work behind the scenes?
MUCH rather work behind the scenes!

7) She taught actor Val Kilmer how to dance for his role as Jim Morrison in the biopic The Doors. What talent, knowledge or advice have you recently shared?
All that pineapple can do for your health.  Really.  Google "Pineapple, pain" and see what you get.  It works!

8) Paula was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 2005 and uses a prescription biologic every day to help her cope with pain in her toes. On your last trip to the drug store, did you pick up a prescription, or something else?
I can't remember the last time I went to the drug store.  Kaiser's pharmacy delivers.

9) Random question: You have been house-hunting for months. You finally find your dream home and are just about to say "yes" when you spot a mouse scurrying across the floor. Would you take the house anyway?
Oh I'd definitely take the house.  I'd be tempted to feed the mice, but might be overrun by them eventually.


RIP Betty White

Happy New Year!
