Saturday 9


1) How cold is it where you are? Not right now. 53ยบ. Which is freakishly warm for December 28 and accounts for my windows being open, and my being able to hear the kids next door playing outside. I haven't seen the weather report, but I would bet this means snow tomorrow. We must be punished for this sunny warmth!
2) This familiar song was introduced in a 1949 film called Neptune's Daughter. (watch a clip here). Name another movie song. "It's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog."
3) Who was the last person to call you "baby?" You know, I can't recall anyone calling me "baby."

4) This time of year is important to college football fans. Have you watched/will you watch any bowl games? Nope.
 
5)  Are you sad to see the holiday decorations begin to slowly disappear? Or do you think they should all come down right away? I'm still feeling a little Christmas-y, so I still like seeing the decorations.
6) Did you tell the truth about your weight on your driver's license, or did you shave off a pound or two? Neither. I just made up a number because weighing myself makes me sad. 
 
7) Crazy Sam swears that the Echinacea she takes every morning keeps her healthy. Her boyfriend tells her she's wasting her money. Do you take any herbal supplements? Nope. I take a multivitamin in the morning and up the Vitamin C if I feel a cold coming on.
 
8) The average restaurant in the US tip is 18%. Are you a generous tipper? I guess I'm an average tipper. I double the 9% sales tax, so I tip 18%.
 
9) This is the last Saturday 9 of 2013. Do you know the lyrics to "Auld Lang Syne?" Yes. Here is my favorite version from the Sex and the City movie. This, ladies and gentlemen, is why we have good friends. We take trains through the snow for one another and we may be alone but never lonely.

What a great rendition of Auld Lang Syne! I don't think I've ever been called Baby in a tender way--just in sarcasm.

I've watched that movie 5 times in the past week and I cannot get that song out of my head. I love it!!!

How about this one day weather??? :)

I had forgotten that scene in Sex and the City. Thanks for the reminder.

I tip about 20%, mostly because my Dad bartended for years.
