Saturday 9

Saturday 9: Let's Roll

1. Where were you when you found out the bin Laden was killed? How did you find out? I heard it from David Gregory on NBC. I was home, battling a touch of food poisoning. As awful as I felt, it was comforting to know Al Queda felt worse.

2. One of your best friends turns out to be saying hurtful and untrue things behind your back. What would you do? I suppose I could ask Navy Seals Team 6 if they'd like to get the band together ...

3. You instantly become a star. What is it that made you one? The tale of how I win the Lottery, invest in the Chicago Cubs and guide them to their first championship in more than a century.

4. If you could be ANY sex symbol (living or dead) who would it be and why? Padma Lakshmi from Top Chef. She's beautiful, smart, talented ... and the best men I know think she's to die for.

5. Where is your favorite place to eat out? Monk's Pub at Lake and Wells

6. Are there any current (that began before 2010) television shows out there that you've watched regularly from the very beginning? No

7. When is it time to just let it ('it' can be whatever you choose) go? How do you know? What do you do? I don't "do" anything about. One day it will just wash over me that "it" doesn't matter anymore. For me, it happens as a matter of course. Like the old Buddy Holly song, "You go your way and I'll go mine, now and forever till the end of time ... and you won't matter anymore."

8. Pimentos-- in Olives? Useless decorative effect? ...or something you maybe enjoy? ...and is there something you can only stare at and wonder about at the snack bar? I don't believe I've ever eaten a pimento. But then, I'm not a big fan of olives.

9. Why do you think we as a civilization can't seem to get along with one another? Because we just can't accept one another as we are and embrace our differences.


  1. Very funny answer no 2 and I agree with your answer no 9. mine is here:

  2. Great answer for #7, I had a difficult time articulating my answer.

    Have a great weekend!
