Saturday 9: I'll Be There for You (1995)

Crazy Sam’s Saturday 9: I'll Be There for You (1995)
1) This song begins with, "So no one told you life was gonna be this way …" What do you wish you knew five years ago about your life now?
How great retirement is.

2) This is, of course, the theme from Friends, which is frequently shown back-to-back on TVLand and TBS. Have you ever "binge-watched" a show, catching episode after episode?
Nope, I usually limit my watching show like “Orange is the New Black” to one or two episodes a week.

3) On the show, Monica and Rachel shared a beautiful 2BR/2BA Soho apartment with a private balcony. It's estimated that such a pad would cost at least $3500/month in today's real-life New York. Describe your dream home.
Oh where to begin! My dream home would be on 50 acres with a private lake.

4) Of the six main characters, only Chandler was an only child. Do you have any siblings?
Yes, a brother

5) Gunther was the barista at Central Perk, the coffee shop where the Friends hung out. He had an ongoing, unrequited love for Rachel. Are you crushing on anyone right now? Does he/she know?
Nope, I don't have a crush on anyone at this time.

6) Currently Matt ("Joey") LeBlanc stars in the Showtime series Episodes, playing a character named Matt LeBlanc. If there was going to be series based on your life, who would play you?
Nobody famous, just some unknown actress, definitely not a comic.
7) Courtney Cox, who portrayed Monica, has the Twitter handle @CourtneyCox and has 628,000 followers. What was your last tweet?
I don’t have a twitter account.

8) The creators of Friends were massive soap opera fans. They named their characters after recurring characters on All My Children* and had Joey appear on Days of Our Lives. Have you ever been hooked on a daytime drama?
Nope, I never have watched a soap.

9) The band who performed this song, The Rembrandts, took their name from the famous Dutch painter. Can you see any artwork from where you're sitting right now? Tell us about it (and yes, a school painting by your 7-year-old nephew counts).
I have a photograph of a Maine lake in the fall, does that count?


  1. Yes, a photograph of a Maine lake in the fall counts. It sounds splendid.

  2. Photos do count! I bet it's very pretty.

  3. Three of my close friends are retired. I don't think that's in the cards for me... :( It's good I love my job!

  4. Is it a photo you've shared on your photography blog?

  5. No, my brother and sister-in-law gave it to me for a present.

  6. Now you've got me wondering if Joy Behar would have been a better choice for me :)

  7. Never watched a soap, huh? Your dream home sounds like what I would like too. I know I would LOVE retirement.

  8. Retirement is so lovely. You can practically throw away the alarm clock!

    I didn't watch soaps either. But I am snagging your Orange is the New Black for a look in. thanks!
