Saturday 9 -- Time Has Come Today

1. What time of day do you usually play Saturday 9? Before knocking off Friday night/Saturday morning.

2. At 9AM on a weekday, what are you doing? Riding the el to work, wondering how I managed to be late yet again.

3. At 9PM on any given night, what would you most like to be doing? Ideally it would be yummy to be making love. Unfortunately Don Draper doesn't really exist.

4. What is your most frequent activity online? Email

5. Is there one day of the week that seems to fly by? If yes, why? Tuesday. I'm into the rhythm of work and it's Idol night at home.

6. Do you agree that the older you get, the faster time seems to go by? Yes. I use summer as my gauge. When I was a kid, summers yawned before me, and then when I returned to school so many kids had changed over those 3 months. Now summer speeds by, just like every other season.

7. What is your favorite thing to do with free time? Crap TV. American Idol or Nancy Grace.

8. How much time do you spend alone? Would you like it to be more? Less? Alone time is very good for me. I usually only go out two or three nights a weeks, leaving me alone for four or five. That's by choice. I need the time to recharge my battery.

9. If you could spend one hour doing something what would it be? This is the toughest question! I have two answers. My dream hour would either be spent: (1) at Wrigley Field, watching the Cubs play the Cards. (Ok, watching the Cubs beat the Cards.) I'd love to be sitting there with my nine-year-old nephew, watching his face as he takes in the beauty and excitement of the game and seeing him become a fourth-generation Cub fan or (2) in uninterrupted, real-time conversation with my best friend. Now that I've suspended obsession about my own career issues, I can go back to worrying about how he's coping with his. Also, selfishly, I miss him. Everything in my world seems more manageable and makes more sense after I talk him.
