Hey everyone! That mask freaks me out. I'm not a fan of masks. One time, in the first year of our marriage, I was pregnant withChloë and taking a shower. Rob decided it would be a good idea to put on his dive mask and peek in the shower at me. When I turned around, I screamed bloody murder. Terrified, I was! I cried so hard, he hopped in the shower fully dressed to comfort me. So yeah. No masks.
1) In this song, Steve Miller claims he's a picker, grinner, sinner, lover, smoker and joker. Do any of those six words describe you?
I'm definitely a grinner. It's hard not to find me grinning unless I'm in excruciating pain. And even maybe then sometimes. Sinner, Lover, Joker - all me. The other two, nah.
2) He maintains he's still a midnight toker. When's the last time you got high?
Unless it's been via prescribed medication, nunca. Jamas! Never. But as for medically high... last night/a little bit still right now.
3) The lyrics include a reference to peaches. Name your favorite fruit.
Oh gosh. That's a tough one! I love fruit, especially strawberries, canteloupe, and honeydew melon. But then there are oranges, lemons and limes; pineapple... oh, gosh. I think I like it all expect mangoes. Those do nothing for me!
4) This song had a big impact on the character of Joey on Friends, who had an imaginary friend named Maurice with the occupation of space cowboy. Did you ever have an imaginary friend?
Nope, I never did. Also, I did not know that about Joey, etc. Huh!
5) Steve Miller is the pride of Milwaukee, WI. What else is Milwaukee famous for?
The first thing I could think of was beer!
6) Steve Miller considers himself a serious blues guitarist. When did you last feel like singing the blues?
About two hours ago. Full moon = full-on excruciating Lyme pain. All of us Lymies feel the same way right now: 10 is a number we blew past long ago, on the pain scale. I was crying the blues last night.
7) In 1973, when this song was popular, you could buy a portable 8-track tape player for $44.50. On what device do you listen to music most often?
Either on the laptop I'm borrowing from Rob or my desktop. Whichever I'm on, I stream music therewith.
8) A Curious George book packaged with a Curious George plush toy was a big seller at Christmas 1973. Tell us about a toy -- either given or received -- that brightened a holiday or birthday for you.
I had several Cabbage Patch Kids, but when I was about 8 or so, I wanted a black CPK desperately. Don't ask me why; my dad (the racist) gave me plenty of pushback, but I was insistent. I actually received one for that Christmas! Her name was Tiffany Jacqueline; I took the most extra special care with her, like she needed my protection and love the most.
9) M*A*S*H was one of TV's top-rated shows in 1973. Who is your favorite M*A*S*H character?
I can't do it. I hardly remember it; M*A*S*H was a bit before my time. Sorry!
Thanks for stopping by! What are your plans for this weekend? We may be going to a Lavender Festival later this weekend. We shall see!
