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!
Saturday 9: Love Don't Cost a Thing (2001)
1) Love may not cost a thing, but everyday stuff does. What's the most recent thing you bought? How much did you spend?
I bought a bunch of stuff at the
Dollar Store (pot holders, dish towels, stuff to send to the grandkids).
I spent $30.
Well, if I swivel my chair 180
degrees, I can see our back yard. but my desk faces a wall.
gift that was personally chosen. "It's the thought that counts"
works well for me.
4) She met her first husband, dancer Cris Judd, while working on this video. She met Ben Affleck, to whom she was once engaged, while working on a movie. Think of those you're closest to -- where did you meet them?
Most of them I
met while at UC Berkeley, and we met through the Newman Center, the
Catholic center on campus.
routine consists of walking from my desk into the kitchen to get a snack
or a cup of coffee. I do that a few times a day I don't know
how much that counts on a FitBit. Trying to get out of a chair also
burns a lot of calories.
My closest friends were the group involved in the Senior play (though my memories don't concern the play). Three of us played hooky one day and snuck out of some religious retreat we were supposed to go to and instead we went downtown San Francisco and saw the movie Friendly Persuasion.
7) JLo just completed filming her third season playing a police detective on NBC's Shades of Blue. Did you see anything memorable on TV this past week?
Victoria and Abdul, which I'd wanted to see ever since it came out
as a movie. It's now for rent through Xfinity and was worth it.
I loved the movie. In strictly TV programs, "something memorable"
this week would have to be the finale of Scandal, which I have
followed from episode one. TOTALLY un-believable, but
wrapped things up nicely....well, except for Rosen. The
after-party on Jimmy Kimmel was lots of fun.
definitely spend too much time, but it's my social life, so I probably
will not change.
I'm a terrible haggler, and I think $7 is certainly reasonable. That said, several years ago, I got one of those "unusual little knicknacks" at a Christmas party--where you play the "steal the gift" game. I recognized it as a creation of a local artist and grabbed it. Nobody else realized what it was and I smile whenever I look at it today.
