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: "It's a Jungle Out There" (Theme
from Monk) (2003)
1) This week's song is the theme from the detective show that ran from 2002-2009. Were you a fan?
A huge fan. I'm still a fan and
watch all the marathons. In fact, I have about 10 of them on my DVR
No. But I drink bottled water.
I worry less now than I have in the past.
Now that Ned has taken over my life, I just turn it all over to him.
(Yes, I'm kidding. Sort of)
One or two, maybe. I was not a huge
I don't think so. I inherited a whole
set of all of Agatha Christie's books 30 years ago and don't think I have
read any of them.
I won an award for best writing of an
original musical in 1999, and I have a plaque for that, but since I didn't
strictly speaking do any of the writing, but was more the muse, I never felt
I deserved it.
Well, never having been nominated for awards,
I don't have the experience of being a graceful loser!
Other than Armstrong, no. Well, maybe Barry Bonds.
Tacos, please. Extra guacamole.
As an aside to all of this, Adrian Monk was
played by the remarkable Tony Shalhoub, who was previously in the TV series
Wings. I was reviewing a play in Sacramento recently (Daddy's
Dyin'--Who's Got the Will?) and one of the characters was played by a
Deborah Shalhoub. I came home and looked up Tony Shalhoub's biography
and learned he's the second youngest of 10 children born to an immigrant
from Lebanon. And yes, Deborah is his sister.

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
Apparently someone decided I should approve comments before they appear
