28 April 2017

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 is today's questions!

Saturday 9: I Won't Last a Day without You (1972)

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

1) This song makes reference to rainbows. Have you seen one lately?
Not in a long time, I don't think.  We have had weather conditions that should have produced rainbows, and I'm sure did, but I could not find them.  Those leprechauns were just very sneaky.

2) When Sam heard this song, it occurred to her that she wouldn't last a day without a game of online Yahtzee. What little commonplace pleasure reliably brightens your day?
I'm currently obsessed with a game which has several names.  On my phone it's called 100! Block Puzzle.  It took me weeks to beat my high score >50,000 and I beat it by 20,000.  It will be forever before I beat that one.


3) Richard Carpenter was emphatic that his group's name was "Carpenters," NO "the." Whenever he hears the group referred to as "The Carpenters," it gets on his nerves. What little commonplace annoyance reliably sets you off?
Those ads and promos that crawl under the screen when you are watching another show on TV.  Annoying in and of themselves, but when they cover up part of the picture that is important, it's
very annoying.

4) Karen Carpenter said she drank iced tea all day long. What beverage do you think you'll have with your next meal?
Ice water.  My every meal accompaniment.

5) "I Won't Last a Day without You" was written by Oscar-winning composer Paul Williams. He also tried his hand at acting, most notably appearing with Burt Reynolds in Smokey and the Bandit. Back in the 1970s, the three movies in the Smokey series were very popular. Have you seen any of them?
I know I've seen the first one because the kids liked it and I think I've been aware of it more than once, but I don't think I saw the others.

6) This song was recorded in 1973 by Diana Ross. Now in her 70s, Miss Ross is still going strong with a busy calendar of appearances in 2017. What's your favorite Diana Ross song?
I'm not a Ross fan, so I had to look up a list of her songs.  I guess "I will survive" would be a favorite (it's only one of a couple I recognized).

7) In 1972, the year this song was popular, the United States and the United Kingdom joined forces and launched the Copernicus satellite. Today it's remembered for the discovery of long-period pulsars. Crazy Sam got bored writing this question. Do you enjoy reading about science?
No.  I enjoy the very occasional science fiction, but reading about science?  Nope.

8) Before Michael Phelps, Mark Spitz was American's premier Olympic swimmer. In 1972 he won seven Gold Medals. After making millions in endorsements and TV appearances, he settled into a career as a realtor in Los Angeles. Are you contemplating a change in residence any time soon? If you move, will you be consulting a realtor?
If I leave this house it will probably be with the assistance of an undertaker.

9) Random question: Which of these is completely, 100% UNTRUE of you -- boring, lazy or stupid?
stupid.

She died yesterday.  Fifth Lamplighters death since the start of the year.
