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: Walking on Broken Glass (1992)

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

1) Annie sings that she feels she's walking on broken glass. What's the most recent item you broke?
I am such a klutz that I'm surprised I can't think of anything that I have broken lately.

2) She sings about being cut until she bleeds. Tell us about a time you needed stitches.
I had taken a group of students from Chile to Lake Tahoe for a few days.  It was winter and very cold.  It wasn't snowing, but there was snow on the ground and the road was icy. I slipped on the icy ground and fell backwards, hitting my head.  Head wounds bleed a lot.  The leader of the group happened to be a doctor and he insisted that I go to the ER to get my head stitched up (when it was time to remove the stitches, he did it for me).

3) This week's featured artist, Annie Lennox, was born on Christmas Day. Do you know anyone whose birthday falls on a holiday?
My aunt, a friend I worked with and one of our Pinata gen2 kids have Halloween birthdays.

4) When Annie met Dave Stewart, with whom she'd form the duo The Eurthmyics, she was living in Australia and staying in a tiny apartment called a bedsit. The occupant has his/her own combination bedroom/livingroom with cooking facilities, but must share a bathroom. Tell us about one of your early apartments.
My first apartment was one big room and a kitchen.  The big room had a fold-out bed.  This apartment was perfect because it was across the street from "Newman Inn," the house that the Newman Center was renting out, where I spent time cooking for the guys who lived there (Walt lived there)

5) After the Eurythmics broke up, Annie went out on her own. Would you rather work independently, or as part of a group?
I think I prefer to work independently.

6) Among her many honors, Annie Lennox was named chancellor of Scotland's Glasgow Calledonia University. What's the last college campus you visited? What brought you there?
The town of Davis has a university at its center -- the University of California, Davis. I am there frequently.  I think the last time was in March when I reviewed Peter and the Starcatcher.  I have not had an excuse to go to campus since we all quarantined.

7) In 1992, the year this song was recorded, compact discs outsold cassette tapes for the first time. Back in the day, did you enjoy making your own mix tapes?
I didn't make a lot, but I did make a few.

8) Also in 1992, Johnny Carson made his last appearance as host of The Tonight Show. The catchphrase, "Here's Johnny!" was associated with the show. Can you think of another popular TV catchphrase?
*the tribe has spoken
*live long and prosper
*good night, John Boy
*is that your final answwer?
* and my favorite this month:  "You're Fired" !!!

9) Random question: Think of your past week. Now look ahead to the coming week. Would you like it to be more, or less, exciting?
I don't know how it could possibly be less exciting.  Since next week is Thanksgiving, I would hope it would be more exciting, though we have no big plans.


With their new big house, Tom's family can get a bigger Christmas tree.
