Saturday 9

Yeah, I know it's Friday. But I'm killing time until my pizza is done and I begin watching my movie (see post below).

 Saturday 9: Call Me Maybe 

1) Do you owe anyone a phone call? Yes. I was supposed to have lunch with an old friend today and I blew her off. I left her a vm and an email in advance (I mean, I didn't stand her up), but still, I should try to talk to her in real time so I can explain. 

2) Do you still have a landline phone? Yes, indeedy. I'm old school. It's still my favorite mode of communication.

3) When was the last time you looked up a number in the phone book? Last autumn when my modem went out. I was so freaking HELPLESS without internet access.

4) Do you receive more calls or texts? Calls. I don't really like texts. Call me or email me.

5) Carly Rae made the Final 3 on Canadian Idol. Can you name another cultural import from Canada? Michael Buble.

6) Sam grew sick of this song by hearing it too often on the radio. Where do you listen to the radio most often? Car? Work? Somewhere else? I start each morning singing badly along with a shower radio like this one.

7) Mother Winters can work wonders with an iron and a can of spray starch. Every blouse and shirt she presses looks good as new. Is there a domestic chore you excel at? I can pretty well remove any stain from any piece of clothing. Oh yes, I can!

8) Do you consider yourself competitive? I am at canasta. I am a wicked good canasta player.

9) Tell us your superhero name -- as determined by the color of your shirt and an item to your right. For example, Crazy Sam now fights crime as The Light Blue Coffee Mug! Addy set this up beautifully and I'm stealing it:
By day I am the mild-mannered Gal Herself…but by night I take to the streets to spank the criminal element and save small kittens in my crime fighting alter ego The Green Striped Tissue Box!


  1. "The Light Blue Coffee Mug" LOVE it :)

  2. I think texting are for the young. When I was in grad school a couple of years ago with the twenty - thirty somethings they use to text me all the time. It was the only way to contact them... "phones are just so OLD fashion.!"

  3. Stains? Do tell! You should write a post about that!
    These names are cracking me up.

  4. Michael Buble is Canadian? I had no idea... love him! Great Christmas album!!

  5. Living so close to Canada (a fifteen minute drive) I know of lots of Canadian artists. I frequently watch Canadian TV and listen to Canadian radio shows.

  6. I don't trust having only a cell phone and not a landline. Especially when the cable goes out.

  7. Oh Michael Buble. I didn't realize he was Canadian.
    Love your superhero name! :)
    Great answers, as always!
