Beer Barrel Polka

1) Have you ever danced the polka? I have, indeed

2) Frankie Yankovic was a stellar accordion player. What instrument have you mastered, or would like to learn? I am very very skilled at percussive (non-drum) instruments.

3) When Frankie died in 1998, his obituary proclaimed him as "America's Polka King." Lucille Ball was "The Queen of Comedy" and Michael Jackson was "The King of Pop." What royal title do you deserve? Queen of Clutter!

4) Do you like light beer? meh, I'm not much of a beer drinker, although there are some wonderful specialty beers that don't have a light alternative

5) In 1901, daredevil Annie Taylor successfully went over Niagara Falls in a barrel. She was badly bruised but otherwise fine. How much money would it take for you do to do something that dangerous? uhm... well, I would love to skydive

6) When was the last time you visited a pet store? it's been a few months, I was thinking about getting a beta fish so I browsed around

7) What's your favorite salad dressing? Ken's Raspberry Pecan Vinaigrette or Ranch

8) Sam Winters is crazy about her smart phone. She uses it to take pictures, record videos, listen to tunes, answer emails and surf the net and, oh yeah, she even uses it to make calls. How indispensable is your mobile phone in your day-to-day life? well, since I just upgraded to a smarter phone with a camera, I do use it more often

9) "Kocham cię" is "I love you" in Polish. Can you say "I love you" in a language other than English (and Polish)? French, Italian, Spanish, and Irish

**edited: The Gal asked me to prove my polyglot status so: Tú mo ghrá! Ti amo! Je t'aime! (or Je t'adore!) and Te amo!

I should have elaborated to say my sister lived in Italy, I live near Quebec and French is a common second language around here, one of my besties is a Spanish teacher. And I learned a variation of Irish in college.

How do we know you can say, "I love you" in "French, Italian, Spanish, and Irish?" Prove it!

I find that it is easier to take a picture with my phone and send it to myself than use a camera and upload pictures.

Have a great rest of your Saturday!
