Saturday 9

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

1) In this song, a son thanks his mother for helping him grow up strong and confident. Who is the last person you thanked? What did they do for you? The checker at Whole Foods.
2) Who was the last person to thank you for something? A coworker. I really delivered Friday, especially when you consider that I was playing hurt.

3) This is from the Backstreet Boys' album Millennium, recorded and released in 1999. Do you remember where you were and what you were doing when 1999 turned into 2000? I don't recall doing anything special that night. I think I was too freaked out by Y2K rumors/conspiracies.

4) This song was written by Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell. Brian voiced himself on an episode of PBS' Arthur. Arthur has been described as an "animated anthropomorphic aardvark" -- which can be difficult to say. Do you easily get tongue tied? Only at the worst times.
5) The French word for "mother" is "mère." What other French words do you know? "Sont des mots qui vont très bien ensemble." 

6) Mother's Day is a big holiday for card shops. So are birthdays, weddings, and St. Patrick's Day. Hallmark sells greetings for everything from "Congratulations on Your New Job" to "Happy Retirement." Who received the most recent card you bought? I sent a Mother's Day card to my aunt/godmother.
7) Have you put away your winter clothes yet? I really should.

8) Mother Winters used to scold Sam for leaving her dirty dishes in the sink. Sam admits it: as a grown up, she's still a bit of a slob. Do lean toward "neat" or "messy?"

That's me on the left
9) To celebrate Mother's Day, Sam is giving away her mother's favorite: Hershey Bars. Would you prefer classic milk chocolate, dark chocolate or milk chocolate with almonds? Right now, I think I'm in the mood for dark chocolate.


  1. So I had to look up the translation! Aha! I like your choice of chocolate. It’s okay to be a slob if you don’t live with someone like Felix.

  2. I also went to Google translations

    You know what will happen if you put away your winter clothes... we will have a cold snap

  3. Oscar was always my favorite, for obvious reasons.

  4. Congrats on getting the job done in spite of how you were feeling.

  5. Oh that Y2K thing was crazy! I was kind of young and computers were new to me, so I was not sure what was going to happen. I did stay up to make sure all was well though. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend!

  6. At the worst time...I think that's an unwritten law of the universe. Why bother unless it's going to be embarrassing?
    I thought of using a picture of Oscar, but I think I did not too long ago, but that's still me on the left, too.

  7. I regret putting my winter clothes away. Winter will never end this year.

  8. My hubby was a software and hardware tech, so he was working that night very late.
