Saturday 9: Brokenhearted

Crazy Sam’s Saturday 9: Brokenhearted (2012)

On Saturdays I take a break from the heavy stuff and have some fun…
Sorry I didn’t get to reply to everyone last week. But I was up at the Women’s Rally in Hartford and on Sunday I went to a friend’s birthday party. Today I am at a model train show in Springfield.

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

1) This song is about a girl who is eager and anxious for her new lover to call. Do you owe anyone a call? An email? A text?
I owe a lot of people emails to tell them their workshop proposals have been accepted for our conference  in April and I have been procrastinating.

2) The lyrics are peppered with the informal English exclamation, "cheerio!" What pops into your head when you close your eyes and think of England?
Brexit. What a nightmare!

3) This week's artist, Karmin, is a husband/wife duo who met at college, and that meeting changed the course of their lives and careers. Think of someone who has had a huge impact on your life. Did you know, as soon as you met, that this was going to be a life-changing relationship?
Nope.

4) Though she sings about consuming tequila, the female side of Karmin, Amy, is a big proponent of healthy eating. She recommends organic foods that are free of pesticides, hormones, food coloring and added sugar. Think about your most recent meal. Was it a good example of "healthy eating?"
Chili, it has all your basic food groups

5) Husband Nick has his own Twitter account (@NickKarmin), but he doesn't use it often. His last tweet was back in August. What's the last thing you posted to social media? (No, your blog doesn't count.)
Probably something anti-Trump.

6) Karmin performed "Brokenhearted" live on Dancing with the Stars. DWTS is  very big business for ABC-TV. So many people vote for their favorite couples each week that their phone and text systems often overload. Have you ever voted for a contestant on American Idol, DWTS, The Voice, etc.?
I don’t. I have never voted for any shows like that.


7)  In 2012, the year"Brokenhearted" was popular, the average cost for a gallon of gas was $3.91. In 2016, it had dropped to $2.40. When it's time to fill up your tank, do you shop around for the lowest price/gal.? Are you brand loyal and always return to the same station, regardless of price? Or do you just buy gas from the nearest station when you're running low?
I have brand loyalty (Citgo) but for some reason our gas in town is cheaper than any town around. Right now it is $2.32.

8) In 2012, the Space Shuttle Endeavor was retired and placed on permanent display at the California Science Center, a Los Angeles museum dedicated to encouraging excitement and enthusiasm about air and space travel. Let's say you had a long weekend to spend in Los Angeles. Would you go out of your way to see The Endeavor? What else would you like to do during your time in the City of Angels?
I don’t know if I would want to see anything in Los Angeles, I would probably head up the costal highway.

9) While we're thinking about aviation ... Statistics show that it's still a predominantly male field, and less than 10% of commercial pilots are women. Would you be nervous flying with a woman pilot?
Nope. Th one time that I flew in the company jet it was a woman co-pilot.

So you flew with a woman pilot! I'm thinking back to all those times when I passed the cockpit on the way off the plane, and I don't recall every seeing a woman pilot.

From what I've seen in old movies and TV shows, a drive up the coastal highway would be lovely!

Twitter has been exploding thanks to that orange windbag. To think, twitter almost had to shut down before that dummy came along.

Our local Citgo pumps gas and services our cars, so I always go there. Especially when it's below zero!

Let those people know the good news!! :-)

And like you, I'd rather see the coast than the city.

Oh yes, Brexit, another abomination! Somehow, it doesn't seem so coincidental that these two regimes have arisen at the same time.

And, of course, Chili has it all, but with corn tortillas and beans, it is a complete protein. ;o)
Oh yes, skip Los Angeles except maybe the tar pits. There was a really great museum there when I went as a kid, and it was even better when we took the kidlets.
Happy rest of the weekend. Diana.
