Saturday 9: Marshmallow World

Crazy Sam’s Saturday 9: Marshmallow World (1963)

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

1. This song likens fluffy clouds to marshmallows. What does the sky look like where you are today?
Blue with thin wispy clouds

2. The lyrics refer to snowballs. Have you ever been in a snowball fight?
Yes when I was little, and I lost.

3. Chionophobia is fear of snow. What phobias do you have? 
Chionophobia is a good one to have, on a snowy I just curl up in front of the fire and read.

4. In 2004, Canadian school children raised money for charity by setting a new world record: the most snow angels made in 24-hour period. Have you ever participated in a fundraising stunt? 
Nope, but I have gone to fundraising banquets

5. When marshmallows were first introduced, they were used for medicinal purposes. Specifically to soothe sore throats. What do you take when your throat is bothering you?
A good shot of spiced rum.

6.  Marshmallows are an important ingredient in the Rice Krispies Treat recipe. If you were asked to prepare something for a bake sale, what would you make?
You really don’t want me to bake anything. Cream Cheese Roll-ups are my specialty.

7. Darlene played Danny Glover's wife in the Lethal Weapon movies. Do you enjoy action movies?
Nope, I like a good mystery instead on the bang, bang, shot ‘em up movies.

8. Darlene's father advised her to always, "shoot for the stars." Share some good advice you've received.
My brother taught me never to drink sitting down, always get up once in a while to see how drunk you are.

9. Will you be returning/have you returned any holiday gifts?
Nope, I’m keeping them all.


  1. Your brother's advice is great. I've made that mistake once or twice.

  2. those cream cheese rolls sound delicious! even better that it's no bake! :) thanks for sharing the recipe!

  3. I've never heard your brother's advice. But then I also stopped drinking when I was 19, a long time ago.

  4. I am keeping all of my gift too. Actually, my dogs had amazing taste in gift giving this year :)

  5. Loved your recipe page. Lots of good stuff on there! Thanks for sharing it.

  6. I totally follow your brother's advice. I am such a lightweight now, though. Cream cheese, mmmmm....

  7. Your brother's advice is new to me. I'll have to take it to heart.
