Saturday 9


1) Do you come up with your brightest ideas early in the morning or late at night? In the morning, in the shower.
 
2) Are you more likely to feel romantic at night or in the morning? Whichever happens to be the least convenient.

3) Do you shower in the morning, after work or before bed? Morning


4) Billie Holiday was just 44 when she died. Is there an artist whose early demise surprised and saddened you?
John Lennon's murder broke my heart. 
 
5) Billie was known as "Lady Day." Do you have a cool nickname? (If not, feel free to give yourself one right now.) No. But I like "Lady Day" and may just claim it as my own.

6) When was the last time you had the blues?
I get sad in those everyday moments when I realize how much I will miss my mom from now on, for the rest of my life.

7) Crazy Sam is eating Trader Joe's Snickerdoodles as she composes this. What's the last snack food you ate? Chocolate Mochi. This Japanese ice cream treat is awesome! I just heard that the businesswoman and philanthropist who ran the Mochi ice cream manufacturer, Frances Hashimoto, died this week.

8) Do you worry about preserving endangered species? Or do you believe in survival of the fittest? Yes. I worry about the polar bears and the big cats. I hate the idea that future generations won't see them.


9) Would you ever hire a lawyer who runs commercials on TV? Do you know anyone who has? No. It's hard to take those TV lawyers seriously, isn't it?

  1. I know exactly what you mean about missing your mother. Someday's while I am in the shower I think of something I need to tell her and then I remember she is gone....she has been gone for almost 6 years now. Hope your weekend is good.

  2. I've never tried Mochi! I'll have to look for that. :) A loss of a parent is hard and the blues hit right out of thin air.

  3. Trader Joes sells Mochi. I am always thinking about telling mom something and then remember she's gone. I am so sorry about the things I've missed sharing with her the last 10 years.

  4. My mother passed away seven years ago and my father six years ago and I still find myself thinking I have to ask them... Then I remember.

  6. I've never seen the Mochi stuff, but I think I'd love it. I thought of John Lennon, too.

  7. Why have I never heard of Mochi? Looks amazing.

  8. I thought a lot about the endangered species question. I just realized that I support saving when it's man who is causing the problem, but not if it's nature. Weird, no?

  9. You have no idea how much I miss my mother. It's been almost 3 years. I'm at the 'gotta move on with my life' stage.

    Have a great evening!
