Saturday 9: Don't Envy Me

Saturday 9: Don't Envy Me (1963)

On Saturdays I take a break from the heavy stuff and have some fun…
It has been a crazy last couple of weeks, last Saturday we our annual conference and I was there from 6:30AM until 5:00PM… it was a very long day!

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

1) What is it about you that you believe your friends and acquaintances envy?
Hmm… that’s a hard one.
Maybe my mind.

2) Do you have a friend or acquaintance that you envy?
Yeah, the ones who can just start a conversation with a stranger… I’m too introverted.

3) This song was not a hit, even though it was written and produced by the supersuccessful team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Tell us about a project you had great confidence in at the beginning, but didn't turn out as well as you'd hoped.
Oh there are so many of them that I can’t recall and particular one. After all, life is about trying new things and many of them don’t turn out as we hoped, everything from a new lover or to a new recipe.

4) George Hamilton is better known as an actor. He is proud of his performance in the 1960 movie Light in the Piazza. He played an Italian who romances an American girl on holiday in Florence. Did you ever find love while vacationing?

5) George had a small part in Godfather III. How many of the Godfather movies have you seen? Have you read the book?
I only saw the first Godfather and I never read the book and probably wouldn’t unless it was written about space.

6) He's gotten a lot of publicity over the years for his personal life, including his 1966 romance with First Daughter Lynda Bird Johnson. At the time, she was living in the White House. Tell us about a memorable experience you had "meeting the parents."
Well this is going to be a short answer… I haven’t had one.

7) George is also known for his year-round tan. Have you ever used a tanning bed? Or self tanner?
Nope… I live in the shade.

8) In 1963, when this record was released, President Kennedy made a historic trip to Ireland. Have you ever visited the land of your ancestors?
Well I have visited Waterbury and Fairfield where my parents were born.
Oh wait! You mean my grandparents. Yes I have visited Waterbury and Fairfield where my grandparents were born.

9) Random question -- The last of a batch of delicious chocolate chip cookies just fell on your kitchen floor. Would you eat it?
Well I would leave a ¼ inch layer on the floor and use the rest of the batter.
(update: hmm... I thought it said cookie dough.That's what happens when you answer the questions at 4 in the morning)

Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here.
