Saturday 9

1) This song refers to the summer breezes and winds of mid-July. Now that July is almost over, how would you describe this month's weather where you are? It's gonna be steamy today, but on balance it's been a chillier-than-usual July.

2) The lyrics mention the "perfect plans." Do you have plans for today? Or will you just let this summer Saturday unfold? I'm just going to let it unfold.

3) This week's artist, k. d. lang, attended Red Deer Community College in Alberta. Red Deer's school colors are green, black and silver. What were your school colors? I spent four years "always cheering for the blue and white. Fight! Fight! Fight!" So said our school fight song.

4) She had a bit part in the 2006 murder mystery The Black Dahlia. Do you enjoy murder mysteries? Yes. I'm hooked on them.

5) Ms. lang is a vegetarian. What's the last beef, chicken, pork or fish you ate? There was sausage on last evening's pizza. It was goooooood.

6) In 2000, when this song was released, California suffered a series of blackouts. Has your power gone out this summer? Not yet. (Thank God!)

7) Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire also came out in 2000. Did you read it? No. Sometimes I think I'm the last Hogwarts virgin on earth.

8) Which would you rather have on your hot dog: sauerkraut, ketchup/mustard/relish or chili? I'm going to go old school with the condiments and choose ketchup/mustard/chili.

9) If you had your choice, which would you prefer: new shoes or a new wallet?
I'm actually good on both counts right now. Could I have the cash equivalent instead?


  1. We are big fish eaters, and our good friend has kept us in trout this summer. Yum!

  2. Oooh, I didn't even think of the cash equivalent option--I'll go for the cash, too!

  3. I've never read the Potter books either and I feel the same way you do sometimes!

    heehee! i want the cash, too! :)

    and that pizza looked good! yum!

  5. Cash is always a good choice.

  6. You and I are on the same food schedule. ;-)

    The Harry Potter series is a good listen, if you like audio books. Jim Dale's 'performance' of each one is astounding, even if you don't care for the stories. He characterizes every single person individually.

    Enjoy your relaxed weekend and new and improving bathroom!!!

  7. I find it ironic that with some of the storms that have come through the state that the electricity has been pretty good- knock on wood...

  8. Not quite the last Hog Worts virgin. hehe. I was going to read them but saw the movies instead.

    Oh yes, the cash!

    Maroon and white, fight!
    Fight! Maroon and White!
    Maroon and White, fight fight!

    stupid, I know but that's why I remember that so forgettable place!
