29 June 2019

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: Ooh La La (2013)

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

1) "Ooh la la" is defined as an interjection said when you think someone or something is "surprising, unusual or attractive." Looking back over this week, did you come across anything that deserves an "ooh la la?"

Perhaps the play we saw lasts night, The Tenth Muse, which was much better than I expected it to be.

2) In this song, Britney Spears sings that she's eager to accompany you, even if you're not a millionaire. But let's say you suddenly become really rich. What's the first leisure trip you would take with your new funds? Who would you bring along?

A first class photo safari to Africa, with Walt, of course.  We'd stay somewhere that our friend Suellyn (whom we met on our very first Viking cruise, to Russia) stayed, in the Serengeti, overlooking elephants. 

3) Britney is eager to dance with you, even if you don't wear designer clothes. Let's say you need to add a blouse (or shirt) to your wardrobe. Where's your go-to for clothes shopping?

It has been so long since I went "shopping" for anything other than t-shirts that I buy on line, I don't have a "go-to place."  But I'd look for some place that sells wearable tents.

4) The video begins with Britney at the movies with her two young sons. Will you be seeing any family members this weekend?

Our son Ned and wife Marta will probably be here this weekend.  We are going to Santa Barbara  on Wednesday for our son Tom's birthday and will be staying with Walt's sister. A big family week!  (I also saw my mother yesterday)

5) This is a theme from the movie Smurfs 2. A Smurf is a little blue creature who lives in a mushroom-shaped house in the forest. Assuming that your home is not shaped like a mushroom and isn't in the forest, how would you describe your abode? (Mansion, ranch house, farm house, high-rise, igloo ...)

Two-story "modernist" 2100 sq ft home built by Streng Brothers.

6) Britney admits to smoking and biting her nails. What bad habit do you wish you could break?

eating bad foods.

7) In 2013, when this song was popular, Pope Benedict resigned. Thinking over your working life, have you been more nervous on your first day of a job, or the last one?

Definitely the first day.  By the last day I was usually thrilled to be leaving.  (And BTW, I was also thrilled when Pope Benedict resigned!)

8) Also in 2013, golfer Phil Mickelson won the British Open. When did you most recently golf?

2003, mini golf in Australia.  I've never played regular golf, though Tom does.

9) Random question -- On what part of your body was the last itch you scratched?

My back.  My back itches so often -- in a place I can't reach -- I keep a wooden back scratcher at my desk.
