Saturday 9

Saturday 9: Come to My Window

Melissa Etheridge is a breast cancer survivor and October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Please spread the word about early detection.

1) This song is about a woman passionate about love and willing to pursue it, no matter what "they say." Are you fearless when it comes to public opinion? Or do you worry about what "they" think of you? The older I get, the less I care.

2) Melissa's father was a high school teacher. Tell us about a teacher who had an impact on you.
I had an American History teacher in high school who made the past feel relevant. Very theatrical, to keep us all interested. Ahead of the curve in introducing other media (movies like The Candidate). I remember being shocked to learn that he sold ties at Marshall Field's over Christmas break. He worked so hard in his classes! He should make a living wage teaching.

3) Melissa won a Grammy for this song. If you won a major award, where would you display it? My office.

4) Which TV game show do you think you'd do better on -- The Price Is Right or Wheel of Fortune? Wheel of Fortune

5) Are you neat and organized? Ha!

6) When was the last time you went more than a day without washing your hair? When I was in the hospital two years ago. I'm not kidding. It takes losing an internal organ or two to keep me from the shampoo.

7) When you eat Chinese food, do you use chopsticks or

a fork? Fork. I'm hopeless with chopsticks.

8) Are you a good cook? Well, I'm a better cook than housekeeper, which is sooooo not saying much.

9) We're having a party in your honor! Would you prefer a costume party, a bowling party or a pool party? Halloween is almost upon us, so I'll go with costume party.


  1. I think you're right. The older we get the less we care what others thunk about us.

  2. I used to have costume parties for all my birthdays--they can be so much fun!

  3. Anonymous9:15 AM

    So true--the older we get, the less it matters. If only we could have that epiphany at a younger age!

  4. Teacher salaries are shameful.

  5. Oh, my gosh: I said the same thing in my answers to numbers 1 & 5!

  6. I don't care what others think of me either. I want a pool party. But first I have to move where it is warm!

  7. How fun would it be to get everyone together for a costume party? Like we'd be able to recognize one another without costumes anyway :)

  8. You are so right... the older I get the less I care. Which really annoys the people who believe their opinions matter to me. hahaha

  9. Hahahahahahahahahaha!!! My true sister from another mister!!!!!!

  10. I'm hoping that I'll get to that point where I don't care what people think. At 37, still not there! :\

    I picked a costume party, too. I'd love to go a real one!


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
