Saturday 9

Saturday 9: What Hurts the Most (2006)

1) What hurts Sam the most is her sole, since she just found that earring she thought was lost by stepping on it with her bare foot. How about you? Any aches and pains to report? My right ear lobe is so itchy! I think I dried out the skin when blow drying my hair.

2) What's the last thing you misplaced? Did you find it? My gray sock is still missing.

3) Lead singer Gary LeVox sings that he's not afraid to cry. When is the last time you shed a tear? While reminiscing with my nephew about my much-missed old tomcat, Joey.

4) Gary auditioned for another country group, Little Big Town, but didn't get in. Considering how successful Rascal Flatts has been, he's probably not sorry. Tell us about something you thought you wanted, but later weren't so sure. The beef barley soup I ordered. It was more tomatoey than I was expecting. I finished it -- I paid for it, dammit, and the vegetables were delicious -- but I'm still not sure if I liked it.

5) The country group has their roots in Columbus, Ohio. What else is Ohio known for? Going for George W. Bush in the 2004 election.

6) Lead guitarist Joe Don Rooney married model and former Miss Georgia, Tiffany Fallon. Many major pageants give prizes in the talent, congeniality and swimsuit competitions. Would you prefer to have exceptional skills, a great personality, or a terrific body? First of all, I love that someone named Joe Don married a beauty queen named Tiffany. Don't they sound like they could be a couple in a Lifetime movie? Now to answer the question: exceptional skills.

7) 2006, the year this song was popular, was a very good one for tennis pro Roger Federer. He reached the finals in all four Grand Slam tournaments, and won three. What's the last game you won? (Yes, Words with Friends counts.) I may not have won, but I did do very well on Farmville this week. I've reached diamond level.

8) Actor Tony Shalhoub won an Emmy in 2006 for his portrayal of detective Adrian Monk on Monk. Who's your favorite TV detective? Thomas Magnum on Magnum, PI.

9) Random question ... You've just won an all-expenses-paid trip but now you have to choose: Carnivale in Brazil, the Bordeaux Wine Festival in France
, or the Running of the Bulls in Spain? Wine gives me a headache and the running of the bulls is cruel. So I'll see you in Rio!


  1. Magnum PI is very good!
    And you're a fabulous farmer grrrrl, but do you get lag visiting your farm? :-)

  2. I never could into Farmville...not a Candy Crush fan either. But I do love Word with Friends.

  3. These were some wonderful answers. Ah, I forgot about Magnum PI.. I always loved that show.

    My Saturday 9:

  4. Magnum, PI is on Cozi TV every night!

  5. I think that my daughter is going up to some wine tasting thing next weekend by your neck of the woods. Hope your foot is feeling better soon.

  6. I played Farmville (or was it Farm Town?) years ago, and liked it, but then decided I needed to get rid of games on Facebook. Now I play them on my Kindle and not the PC. I wonder if Farmville is available on the Kindle. I shall have to look.

  7. I used to play Farmville! I'm not sure why I stopped! I think I moved on to Castleville? I can't remember. And I am ALWAYS losing socks!!!


  8. I'm not much of a wine drinker, but since I've been to a wild Carnivale in Barcelona, and I've been to Pamplona, I'll go back to France.

    Jim Rockford is followed closely by Thomas Magnum.

  9. I don't drink, but I think going to France might be interesting especially since I now know there is a family link there.

    I agree about the running of the bulls being cruel.

    Have a blessed week!
