Saturday 9

Saturday 9: Waking Up in Vegas

Thanks to Cat for recommending Katy Perry 
1) As she sings about her night in Las Vegas, Katy wonders if
she "got hitched last night dressed up like Elvis." Tell us about the last wedding you attended. My friend Barb and her true love, John. Though technically speaking, it wasn't the wedding. That was immediate- family-only. This was a small reception, and it was beautiful.
2) Whenever Crazy Sam visits Las Vegas, she stays at the Paris Hotel and Casino. Have you ever been to Las Vegas, Nevada? What about Paris, France? Yes, and yes. (This makes me sound far more glamorous than I am.)
3) Do you enjoy gambling? Have you had any success at it? Hell yes! I just won $2 in the Illinois State Lotto. Second time this year! (Let's not think about how much I spent to earn that $4.)
4) Las Vegas is served by the RTC Bus Service and the Vegas Monorail System connects many of casinos on The Strip. When was the last time you rode a bus or a train? Every workday I ride the train to and fro.
5) It's not unusual for the mercury to hit 100º in Vegas in August. Which are you more comfortable in -- extreme heat or bone-chilling cold? Cold. I simply don't do heat well. Actually, I wish we could have this summer's weather all year around. It's been gloriously mild. And, while we're at it, I'd prefer it if the rain may never fall till after sundown, by dawn the morning fog must disappear ...
6) As a little girl, Katy Perry sang nothing but gospel. Do you remember any church songs from your childhood? "Red and yellow, black and white, we're all precious in His sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world." 
7) She made her film debut as the voice of Smurfette in The
(2011). Who is your all-time favorite cartoon character? Mr. Peabody. Bullwinkle is a close second.
8) Do you consider yourself a picky eater? No. As long as the food's not spicy, I'm good.
9) You receive an invitation to a party that starts at 7:00 PM. When will you arrive? 7:30. I hate to be the first one there.

  2. Oh, I forgot my commuter train, almost every day of my work life. Not very memorable.

  3. Anonymous9:21 AM

    My MIL sang that song to my song when he was a baby.

  4. I completely forgot about Bullwinkle and Rocky! :-)

  5. Good gravy it's been mild. It feels like September here. It's crazy.

  6. Re #5: pretty sure you've confused Chicago with Camelot there. :-)

  7. Loved the whole Bullwinkle thing. We did a "WTIT Time Machine" based on it. I think I'm seeing everything twice with Banker Chick!

  8. It depends on the type of party for my arrival time. Generally, I'm within fifteen minutes.
