Saturday 9

Unfamiliar with this week's song? Hear it here.

1) What would make tonight a good, good night? Pizza. I have a hankering for gooey, cheesey pizza.

 2) In the song, he sings that he's got money and wants to "spend it up." How
much cash is in your wallet right now? $65 and change. I just went to the ATM yesterday to get the $60.

 3) The lyrics include "mazel tov," which means good luck or congratulations. What other Hebrew/Yiddish phrases do you know? Meshuganah, ma nishtana, tschotze (and according to spell check, I got them all wrong)

4) The colorfully named Black Eyed Peas include Fergie (born Stacey Ferguson) and (William Adams) and Taboo (Jaime Gomez). If you could choose a stage name, what would it be? Julie Andrews or Jennifer Lawrence. Yes, I know they're taken already. But I'd  choose a name that's easy to remember and impossible to mispronounce.

5) This song was crazy popular in Canada, debuting at #2 on the charts. Have you ever visited our neighbor to the north? Once as a child, once decades later.

6) When's the last time you laughed really hard? I don't remember the "when" but I'm sure the "who" was my oldest friend. We crack each other up.
7) Who received the last text you sent? Friend/former coworker Tom.

8) Which sounds like more fun -- skiing or skating? Skiing, though I'd be bad at both.

9) Thinking of sports, are you looking forward to The Super Bowl? Not enough to actually watch it. I'll find out who won and see highlights of Bruno's performance over and over again on Monday. And, since I work in advertising, watching/analyzing the commercials feels like work.


  1. oh, I love watching the commercials. I'd hate it if it felt like work, though. And if you've got a hankering for good gooey cheesey pizza? you must be feeling better!

  2. Oh, now I'm thinking of gooey cheezy pizza!

    Have you seen the new Budweiser Super Bowl commercial yet--the one with the puppy and the horse? It was leaked a few days ago--take a look online. . . :-)

    Me, too, now I want pizza! haha! I do have pizza rolls in the fridge...mmmm.

    My sisters and I always crack each other up. It's funny because when we were younger, it seemed like we fought more than anything!

  5. I haven't had pizza in at least six months. I miss it terribly.

  6. I'm enjoying reading the variations on Yiddish this week.

    Hope you are not getting too much snow. We just have a lot of messy rain down here.

  7. The commercials are always great but I understand how you wouldn't enjoy something so much like work. Blech. I love my mute button. Almost worship it!

  8. Now it seems like all the Super Bowl commercials are on YouTube.

  9. Great, now I'm desperate from some deep-dish. I was all good with leftovers, but now... :(

    I'll watch the ads for you and report back, ok?
