Saturday 9: I'll Be There

Crazy Sam’s Saturday 9: I'll Be There (1992)

On Saturdays I take a break from the heavy stuff and have some fun…   
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) In this song, Mariah pledges to "have faith in all you do." Have you recently given someone support or a pep talk?
Ha! I do it all the time, I volunteer two days a week at a health clinic and answer the support line.

2) Mariah was at the center of a controversy in Times Square on New Year's Eve when she had audio problems and claimed she could not perform. Times Square is at the busy intersection of Broadway and 7th Avenue. If we went to the busy intersection nearest your home, what would we find? (A store? A church? McDonald's?)
A Dairy Queen, a consignment store, a feed and grain store (yes, we do have farms in town), and a garage,

3) Her nickname in high school was Mirage because she cut school so often. Did you ever play hookey?
I probably did but that was fifty years ago.

4) Mariah doesn't apologize for spoiling her dogs, who have been known to travel by limo. Do you know anyone who treats his/her pets like people?
Most definitely.

5) Mariah has something to fall back on. She studied cosmetology and worked as a hair sweeper in a salon. When you get your hair cut, do you socialize with the stylist? 
Again “HA” you have to have hair to get a haircut.

6) When married to her first husband, Mariah went vegetarian. Tell us about last night's dinner. Would it qualify as a vegetarian meal?
Most definitely no, I had meat lasagna for dinner and I paid for it this morning with a high blood glucose reading.

7) This week's song was introduced by The Jackson 5. Think of your favorite Michael Jackson song. Did he record it solo or with his brothers?
Well first you assume that I have a favorite Michael Jackson song which I don’t.

8) In 1992, when this song was popular, The Mall of America opened. Located in Minnesota, it's the biggest mall in the nation, with more than 400 stores. Think about the last thing you purchased. Were you shopping out of necessity, or for fun?
Well I just ordered online more Vanilla Extract - 6 oz (177 ml) for $12.30 because I ran out. But I also ordered Coffee Beans, Chocolate Covered - 8 oz for $7.45 and Cranberries, Dark Chocolate Covered - 5 oz and they were $4.50,I didn’t need them but heck I might as well order them while I was at it.

9) Have you ever shoplifted? (Don't worry. We won't tell.)

P.S. (11:30 AM) Tonight's meal is homemade French onion soup. I'm making a crock pot full and freezing the rest.

I ate a lot of Italian food yesterday and like you, I'm paying for it this morning. I'll spare you the gruesome details, but right now I'm not sure all that fabulous cheese was worth the way it feels this morning.

I would have a serious problem if there was a Dairy Queen anywhere near walking distance to where I live.....

I also had lasagna last night. It was delicious.

We mix up our meals between vegetarian and carnivore. ;-) Love that you added the onion soup recipe. Must try it. The dark chocolate covered cranberries sound delicious.

I think you are amazing. I read your other blog entries and I think you are an incredible person. I admire your courage.

I wish I could eat French Onion soup. Onions disagree with my ulcer, alas.
