Saturday 9: Cheerleader (2014) 

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

1) Homecoming and football make this an important time of year for cheerleaders. Were you a cheerleader, or did you date one?
 
Negative, on both counts.

2) Beyond cheerleaders and the big game, homecoming is a time for parades. Have you ever ridden on a float?
 
Yes, at least twice or thrice. Once as a Brownie Girl Scout, once in high school for reasons I don't remember, and once in college. Okay, in college I helped organize the float for our dorm, so I don't remember whether I actually rode on the float, but I was definitely a big participant!

3) OMI sings that his girl is always there when he needs her. Who do you know you can always count on?
 
Hubs is not reliable when I need a honey-do job done, but as for being there for me? Always Hubs.

4) This video features a sandy beach, a rocky shore and palm trees. What do you see outside your window right now?
 
Lots of palm trees, a fence, and the next row of apartments over...

5) In the lyrics we hear that his cheerleader girlfriend is "like a genie in a bottle." Who would rather hang around with? Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie or Samantha from Bewitched?
 
Oh, definitely Jeannie. She seems like more zany fun than serious Samantha.

6) OMI is from Jamaica. Have you ever visited that island country?
 
I have. My grandfather took us on a cruise in memory of Grandma. In the hills of Jamaica, mansions were next to lean-tos and shacks, with goats roaming in the roads. It was interesting.
 
7) Christopher Columbus landed in Jamaica in 1494. Columbus Day will soon be upon us (October 12). Is it a big deal in your community?

8) Queen Elizabeth is Jamaica's head of state. Her Majesty is now 89 years old and a great grandmother. Who is the oldest person in your life?
 
I guess that would have to be a certain husbandly matriarch, who is past three-quarters of a century...

9) Her Majesty was named Elizabeth Alexandra Mary after three of her relatives, who also were queens. Were you named after anyone?
 
Yes. Me. I was named after myself. Could you imagine me trying to fill someone else's shoes? Nah. Couldn't do it.
 
Thanks for stopping by. GO 'CANES!!!
 
Fin.
