Saturday 9

Saturday 9: Work Hard, Play Harder (2009)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) We're celebrating the last holiday of summer by going country. Who is your favorite country music artist? Garth Brooks

2) Gretchen Wilson sings that on Tuesdays, she gets up before dawn. This morning, did you awaken on your own, or did you need an alarm clock? Since I am answering these on Friday, I have go with alarm clock. The handyman was here at 9:00 AM, and I had to be ready.

Not a good look
3) She tells us that she doesn't waste her time on manicures or spay tans. How about you? Have you recently spent any money at the salon? Since the salon reopened in June, I have returned faithfully every 4-5 weeks. I'm afraid the guv is going to shut it all down again, and I can't bear that mullet again. I looked like The Tiger King.

4) She sings that she's the first to clock in at work. Have you ever worked a job that required you to punch a time clock? I have to fill out a time sheet. My agency bills the client based on how much time I spend on a project.

5) Gretchen Wilson says she is a big fan of McDonald's and tries to eat there once a day when she's on tour. In terms of sales, America's 3 most popular fast-food lunch destinations are McDonald's, Starbucks and Subway. If you could choose a gift card to one of those three, which would you select? Subway, I suppose. I like McDonald's, but Subway is more convenient, now that I'm working from home.

6) Gretchen has endorsed Redneck Riviera Whiskey. What's your favorite adult beverage? Lately I've been ordering margaritas, so I guess it's tequila.

Since this Monday is Labor Day, the holiday established to celebrate the American worker … 

7) Approx. 10% of Americans are self employed. Have you ever been your own boss? Yes. For 13 months I was between jobs and freelanced to keep the lights on. I enjoyed the freedom but hated the recordkeeping. Quarterly taxes! Ugh!

8) According to, 50% of workers have left a job to get away from a boss. Are you one of the 50%? Yes, but I'm not elaborating because I don't want to give her another moment's thought.

9) Farmers feel the impact of extreme weather events. Have you ever had a job that required you to be outdoors most of the time? No.


  1. There is no way you looked as bad as the Tiger King! LOL

  2. Quarterly taxes are a pain. I have an accountant who does the taxes at the end of the year but the bookkeeping I must do - for four different self-owned businesses. I am always behind on it because I dislike doing it.

  3. I like coming here.. I betcha we'd be friends. Do you still get food from subway?

  4. I love Garth Brooks! Why have so many of us experienced #8? Those people should not be in a position of power.
    I am ready for the double header today. I was at my mom's last night, so I missed the game. It sounds like (I) didn't miss anything. Loved your answers! Have a great day!

  5. I had to fill out a time sheet in one job. I left the job when they started keeping track of whether I put down that I left one minute before the time I recorded.

  6. Garth Brooks is so good. It was a hard pick for me.
    I'm with Stacy, that there is no way you could ever look like the Tiger King. lol
    Margaritas used to be my favorite mixed drink. That and Gin and tonics. Now I seldom drink, for the sake of the "little grey cells".
    Hope you have a lovely weekend and a really great week!

  7. Ugh, time personal nightmare ...
