Saturday 9: Dominos

Link up here if you've played along this weekend!

Saturday 9: Dominos

Unfamiliar with this week's song? Listen to it here.


1) Have you ever carefully set up dominos and then watched them fall? Or built a house out of playing cards?
Sure, I've attempted both. I never got terribly far, though; I have really shaky hands. I could never be a neurosurgeon!
2) In this week's song, Big Pink lead vocalist Robbie Furze sings, "The hottest love has the coldest end." Have you ever had a relationship that started out so promisingly and passionately but then quickly flamed out?

Yeah, I've had several. Some have been painful, but others, you just enjoy the ride...
3) This is from Big Pink's CD, A Brief History of Love. What about your personal history of love? How many times would say you have truly been in love?

I would say three times. This time, it's going to last. Hubs and I are in our 13th year of marriage, and we'll go to the end. I'm sure of it.
4) Nicki Minaj sampled this song for her own, "Girls Fall Like Dominos." Nicki won't be back on American Idol this season. Is your reaction a) delight or b) sadness or c) a yawn.
I choose (c). I don't watch American Idol anyway, so it doesn't affect me.
5) While nationally the news centers on foreign policy and the economy, Sam's hometown is abuzz over the new Asian-fusion restaurant on Main Street and whether it can get a liquor license. What's the big local story where you are?
We're still abuzz over Diana Nyad (maybe I got the name wrong?) swimming from Cuba to Key West. I know it's global news, but since it happened right here, it was pretty huge. Sam's news is more fun!


 6) Mary Jane Kelley is believed to be the fifth and final victim of Jack the  Ripper. OK, now it's your turn. Share a random fact that's rattling  around in your brain.
I don't have one on the tip of my brain, so I'll share this: Around 12:47 AM, two of our cats were chasing each other around the house, and one ran over my face. She clawed open my upper lip, and I bled a ton. We almost went for stitches but decided against it. I woke up the whole house with my hollering, so we went out for donuts at 0200. Now they're all awake, playing quietly. Not my ideal evening, but I enjoy listening to them be sweet to each other...

 7) Crazy Sam cursed last night when she dropped a can of tomato paste on her foot. (Hey! It really hurt!) When was the last time you swore?
I swear all the time. I have a potty mouth; I blame my New York upbringing! Kidding... mostly. I'm actively working on cutting back now, though I still cuss every day, I'm sure.

 8) Sam has a grocery bag filled with hoodies and t-shirts she no longer wants and plans to take them to The Salvation Army store. What do you do with your gently used clothes? Toss them or donate them or hand them down to a friend or relative?

Toss them? Never! I either donate, hand them down, or if they're worth something and are in good shape, sell them on eBay. The girls' clothes, especially, since they're usually from Gymboree or The Children's Place, can make me some moolah!
9) Do you blush easily?
Oh, man, I do - and I hate it!! I can't ever have attention on me without turning beet red. It's a curse.
On to Sunday Stealing...
Fin.
