Saturday 9: Magic

Saturday 9: Love Yourself

Hey, everyone. Yes, I'm late again. Been looking for a house in Idaho and trying to pack up this one here in Miami. The going is slow on both counts, and I am mopey. So forgive me if the mood isn't so super in this post... Here we go:


Saturday 9: Love Yourself (2015)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) In this song, Justin sings that he doesn't like to admit he's wrong. When did you most recently cop to a mistake?

I have no problem admitting when I'm wrong (I just never am). Just kidding! I admitted I was wrong for eating cheese last night/this morning when I was up all night paying for it!

2) He also complains that his girl doesn't like his friends. Who is someone that you've met recently and liked?

We haven't been to the horse farm where Sophie used to take lessons in a while, but we did go to their last Halloween party. I struck up a conversation with one of the other moms who didn't seem remotely friendly the first time I encountered her. Surprisingly, we had a great chat, and I really like her. Who knew?!

3) Justin first performed this song live on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Who is your favorite talk show host?

That would probably be Ellen! I love her, though I hardly ever watch telly nowadays.

4) Young Mr. Bieber recently had his credit card rejected ... at a Subway Sandwich Shop. Think about your last trip to a fast food restaurant. Did you pay with cash or plastic or your phone?

I went to Little Caesar's (pizza! pizza!) to pick up some food for the kiddos. I paid cash.  

Even though we're featuring a lack-of-love song, this is the last Saturday  9 before Valentine's Day and so this morning we shall focus on the upcoming holiday. 

5) In Victorian England, it was considered bad luck to sign a Valentine. Have you ever received an anonymous card from a secret admirer?
I received a bouquet of red roses, a few collectibles in the style I used to keep, and more from a "secret admirer," aka a stalker! No thanks!

6) Retailers report that approximately 3% of pet owners buy Valentines for their furry friends. Have you ever purchased a gift for a pet on a special occasion? 

Christmas and maybe birthdays, that's all. I mean, c'mon.
7) It was once believed that if a maiden ate a heavy meal before bed on February 13, her dreams that night would reveal the identity of the man she would eventually marry. Do you find that eating too close to bedtime disrupts your sleep?

Last night I dreamed (when I could actually sleep) that I had to do the dishes and the laundry by hand - in the bathtub. That was strange. Er, uh, what was the question?
8) The postmaster in Verona, Italy, reports that Shakespeare's Juliet Capulet still receives love letters. Without looking it up, can you give us a quote from Romeo and Juliet?

I'm making my 15-year-old Chloë answer this one, since she just recently finished reading it: "But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun." 
9) Necco's Sweethearts -- those little candy hearts that say things like "Be Mine" -- are Valentine Day's top-selling confection. Sam never could stand eating these candies. Do you like them?

Not really. But I do like the moms' version better!! Heh heh.
Thanks for stopping by, even if I am a day late!
