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: All of Me (2013)

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

1) John Legend sings he loves his woman's "perfect imperfections." Tell us something quirky or imperfect about a loved one that you would not change.
The relationship Walt and Polly have at night time, when Walt is going to bed is a bit quirky but I love to watch them together.

2) John wrote this love song to his wife, Chrissy Teigen. The couple recently lost their baby after pregnancy complications. To whom did you most recently send a sympathy (or "thinking of you") card or message?
Our next door neighbor died last week and I sent a card to his wife.

3) While adventurous in his creative career choices, John admits his taste in food leans toward the tried and true. His favorites are chicken (rotisserie or fried), macaroni and cheese, and steamed vegetables. What's on your weekend menu?
I don't know.  Ned and I decide during the day who is going to cook and what they are going to cook.  He makes a lot of Mexican food, since that is what Marta likes.  I cook a lot of chicken, but we both cook both chicken and Mexican and sometimes we cook beef too.

4) When he was growing up, John's mother, Phyllis, helped support the family as a seamstress. Are you any good with a needle and thread?
Good lord no.  I can't thread a needle.  40 or so years ago, Walt threw away shirts because they were missing buttons and I couldn't sew a button on.  (I actually can sew on a button, but finding a needle and thread is the hard part.)

5) As a child, he was such a big fan of Andy Griffith and Matlock that he wanted to be a lawyer. If you grew up to have the same occupation as the TV character you liked best as a kid, what would you be doing?
I don't remember what my favorite character was, but I'd probably be a nurse or a doctor.

6) John is a judge on The Voice. Do you watch that show? Or America's Got Talent, or American Idol?
I spent 3 weeks with my cousin when she was going through chemotherapy and we watched the Voice then, but not since.  I do watch America's Got Talent and I watched the first couple of years of American Idol but no more.

7) In 2013, the year this song was popular, twin baby pandas were born at Zoo Atlanta. Their panda parents had been given to the US as a gift from the Chinese, with the understanding that any offspring would be given to China. So, in 2016, the panda cubs were flown to a Chinese conservation center. They had a hard time adjusting at first, confused by jet lag, unresponsive when spoken to in Chinese, unimpressed by their new diet. Have you ever found yourself similarly overwhelmed when you traveled far from home? (BTW, the pandas are doing just fine now in their permanent Chinese home.)
We've been to several countries, but once we get on a Viking ship, things are normal.  Probably the most unusual place we were, which was difficult (though not very) to get used to was China.

8) Also in 2013, The Pope posted his first tweet. What social media platforms do you regularly use?
Mostly Facebook.  I check Twitter if #45 is having a tantrum, but don't really know how to make the best use of Twitter.  I also periodically check Instagram.

9) Random question: Have you ever a) written something on a public wall or b) carved anything into a tree or bench?
I wrote something on a toilet wall once.  I don't remember now what it was.  I've never carved anything into a tree or bench.
