Saturday 9: My Life Would Suck Without You

Crazy Sam’s Saturday 9: My Life Would Suck Without You (2009)

Today I am in Maine at my brother's and sister-in-law's condo so I will not be able to approve your posts or answer your posts until Columbus Day.

For those of who missed my post of the New York City trip to see Beautiful: The Carole King Musical you can find it here.

On Saturdays I take a break from the heavy stuff and have some fun...

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

1) This video begins with Ms. Clarkson on a swing. When you were young, did you prefer the swings or the slide?
Swings, you can reach the moon on a swing if you try hard enough

2) The first words are, "Guess this means you're sorry." Who is the last person to apologize to you?
These are always hard questions for me because I don’t take notes when I apologize or say I’m sorry. I do it and get on with my life.

3) One of Kelly's earliest show business jobs was as an extra on Sabrina, The Teenage Witch. Do you believe in witches and warlocks?

4) Mentioning witches and seeing Kelly with a lollipop reminds Sam ... She needs to pick up a 1 lb. bag of Dum Dums for Trick or Treaters. Have you done anything in preparation for Halloween?
Nope. And I will not. Bah Humbug... Ops wrong holiday!

5) Ms. Clarkson's advice to aspiring young singers is not to listen to advice. "Everyone gives you their 2¢ worth, but you have to follow your gut." Are you good at soliciting and following advice? Or do you tend to follow your gut?
If it is something that I am not really sure about I ask others.

6) The year this song was popular, 2009, saw two major newspapers go out of business. Both the Seattle Post Intelligencer and Rocky Mountain News published their last editions. Do you still read a paper copy of your local newspaper?
Kind of… I read the electronic copy of the newspaper at 5 AM and then later in the day I bring the paper copy in from to the “tube.”

7) In 2009, Mark Zuckerberg confirmed that Facebook tried to buy Twitter, but was rebuffed. Which social media site do you spend the most time on?
Facebook. I am friends on Facebook with a number of friends who play Saturday 9.

8) In 2009, the Balmain Collection included a pair of jeans that retailed for $2,165. What's the most you would pay for denim pants?
I buy my jeans at Kohl’s and Target

9) Random question: You buy a charity raffle ticket and tuck it into a friend's birthday card. Before you can give the card to her, the numbers are drawn and you realize the ticket is worth $500. Do you keep the ticket or give it to your friend, as planned?
Oh what a tuff question. I would like to think I would give it to them, but…

Oh my gosh, your first answer is awesome! And you say you don't believe in magic! :-)

I think you can use "Bah humbug" anytime nowadays. And I feel you re Halloween.

I agree--I'm not a scorekeeper when it comes to apologies.

You're right about swings and the moon. I know it in my heart.

I can find my absolute favorite jeans at Kohl's, too.

I am Harriet said...

Yep...Kohl' too and never at full price :)

I really enjoyed your trip- vicariously of course vie your post.

That last question was a hard one, wasn't it? It's one of those things that you're not really sure about until you're actually confronted with the problem.

I use to fly high on swings, and jump out when I was real high.
