Saturday 9

1) In 1998, Cher became the oldest woman to top the Billboard Hot 100 with "Believe." She was 52 at the time. At what age do you think you did hit/will hit your prime? Looking back, I liked my mid-late 30s. I was still in very good shape, I was seeing some very nice men and my career was finally taking off.

2) Cher is as well known for her outrageous outfits as for her singing. What's the latest piece of clothing you added to your wardrobe? A wine-colored sweater with a deep v-neck from Kohl's. I was originally attracted by the price, which was $7.99. When I got home and peeled away one yellow sales sticker and after another, I saw that it had originally been $98. It wasn't worth $100, but it's a bargain at less than 10% of that.

3) Cher credits her unique looks to her diverse ethnicity. Her father was Armenian and her mom is English/German/Cherokee. From where did your ancestors come? I'm German and Irish, which accounts for both my pale skin and my stubborn streak.

4) When she was a little girl, Cher produced and starred in a schoolyard production of Oklahoma. Were you involved in drama or theater in school? Nope.

5) Cher is open about her plastic surgery, speaking freely about having had her breasts 'done', her nose bobbed and her teeth straightened. If you could change one physical feature about yourself, which would it be? And what would you never change, under any circumstances? I'm not crazy about all my chins, so if there was a safe and inexpensive way to fix those, I'd consider it. (Wait, is that Debby Boone I hear? What IS a "Lifestyle Lift" anyway? Is there a scalpel involved?) I have pretty green eyes and a nice nose.

6) There's a stubborn rumor, often denied, that Cher had a rib removed so that she could maintain her long and lean silhouette. What's the most outrageous thing anyone has said of you? Somehow by changing jobs I went from being a slut who slept with every male coworker to a lesbian. I wish I was having as much sex as Rumor Mill Gal gets.

7) When she was a kid, Cher practiced her autograph. Do you have a clear, legible signature? Or is it more of a scrawl? My handwriting is the prettiest thing about me.

8) Cher asks, "Do you believe in life after love?" Crazy Sam's question is easier and less profound: Do you believe in luck? Yes.

9) Did you make any resolutions for 2014? Eat less. Move more.


  1. It is always nice to get an especially good bargain.

  2. HAH! It's nice to know that I wasn't the only hussy around. And there was a rumor that my roommate and I were lesbians for a while. SO not true..
    Great job on the sweater :)

    "Eat less, move more" . . . so simple--yet so hard to put into action! I'm going to try to be better at both this year.

  4. I wish my handwriting was nicer, as it was back in the day! Happy Saturday!

  5. I did some bargain shopping, too. Fun to get a coup!

    I adore Cher. I don't really know why.

  6. That is what I have to do, "Eat less, move more" but I find it very hard to do.

  7. Good resolutions. What a great bargain!

  8. Good gravy I can ..and have...gone nuts at Kohl's. They just suck you in with their cash and coupon codes

  9. What a bargain you got, and you are patient to peel all those stickers back. Sleuth? hehe Have a great weekend. I love Kohl's too, and Ross.

    That's a good motto to adopt--I've definitely got to move more, hoping the back will cooperate!

    It's always nice to buy something and then peel back the stickers and see how much it really did cost! Makes me extra happy! :)

  11. Nice find on the shirt!! Love sales likethat

  12. I love it when I get a great bargain!

  13. Clothing prices so high baffle me. Can't imagine any sweater being worth that much. I love shopping the sale racks and finding something perfect waiting for me.


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