Saturday 9: You Belong with Me

Crazy Sam’s Saturday 9: You Belong with Me

1) Like the girl in this song, have you ever been in love with someone, but was afraid to tell them?
Yes, but that was back in elementary school.

2) Taylor Swift has been known to write songs about her real-life lovers. If you were to write a song about the most recent person you were romantically involved with, what would the title be?
Why does always have to me just when I find love?

3) Ms. Swift recently turned 23 and has already won VMAs and AMAs and Grammys. What were you doing when you were 23? (If you aren't 23 yet, where do you see yourself when you hit it?)
Trying to keep from flunking out of college.

4) When you were a child, did you sleep with a plush toy? (If yes, please include its name in your answer.)
Are you kidding? That was over 60 years ago and I don't remember it's name! I think I had a brown teddy bear that I always carried around.

5) I'm making a Starbucks run. What can I get you?
A large black decafe, I’m old fashion none of that fancy stuff for me.

6) It was 60 years ago that Clarence Birdseye first marketed frozen vegetables. Now it's your turn: Share something you learned recently.
You can go back, but it is not the same.

7) In junior high, were you class clown, teacher's pet, a geek, a jock ... or did you just melt into the background?
I was a geek; I was a member of the science club. (We didn't have a Jr. High School back then. It K - 6 and 7 -12)

8) Was your most recent ticket for parking illegally or was it a moving violation?
Hmmm… it was back in 1973 and I was doing 75 in a 65 zone at five AM and I was the only one on the New York Thruway in Canandaigua (Well except for the state trooper who was hiding behind the only tree for miles around).

9) Tell us about the last museum you visited.
It was to the New Britain Museum of American Art to see “In Focus: Recent Acquisitions in Photography” and I want to go see the “Toulouse-Lautrec & His World” exhibit before it closes. The museum is only about 4 or 5 miles from my house and it is world renown for it Hudson River School of Art paintings from the 19th century. I also get free passes to it from my town library.


  1. I don't drive but I imagine it can be very easy to be lulled into speeding on those long, straight expanses of empty highway.

  2. I was just explaining about the Hudson River School to my students.

  3. I'm not sure I could relive the trauma of college again. I'd love to go back and take more classes none the less....
