Why Don't We Get Drunk?

1)This week's song was once named the favorite love song of Bud Wiser, the godfather to this humble blog. With Valentine's Day coming up, what's your favorite love song? "Tell Her This" by Del Amitri

2) When this song was first released back in 1973, the "Why don't we get drunk and screw?" refrain was considered shocking. With the explicit sexual content in many of today's songs, it now hardly raises an eyebrow. When is the last time you were shocked? (Not just by a song, by anything at all.) I was rightly shocked on Thursday when political shenanigans were afoot at school

3) Buffett named his first daughter Savannah, presumably after his favorite city. Tell us about your favorite city. I felt really at home and comfortable at Dublin, Ireland, even though I was there for just a weekend

4) Mr. Buffett opened a Margaritaville Casino in Atlantic City. Have you ever gambled in Atlantic City? What about Las Vegas? I've only gambled in Aruba and I lost between $2 to $10 dollars. It didn't excite me.

5) Saving Florida's manatees is a cause near and dear to Jimmy Buffett's heart. If we were to make a $100 contribution to any charity in your honor, which would you choose? the local cancer support group--I've been knitting hats for it since I learned how to knit

6) If today was your birthday, your astrological sign would be Aquarius. How often do you check your horoscope? daily

7) On this date in 1974, the show Good Times ("Dy-no-mite!") premiered and, much to Sam's confusion and chagrin, still enjoys an audience in syndication. Tell us about a pop culture phenomenon that you just never got into. Zumba

8) Is there a home improvement project on your list of things to do? as a matter of fact, I need to flip my mattress today

9) A warm-weather choice to consider on a February day: Ice cream sundae or banana split? sundae!

I would not be shocked by any political shenanigans at any work place. I would think schools would be a hot bed.

I would like to be healthy enough to do zumba.

Obviously I had some issue with your comment page today. Sorry.

I just flipped a few weeks ago. Actually, I can only spin these days since we got a pillow top mattress.

Your choice got me thinking ... "Dublin" would be a good first name for a boy. Certainly as viable as "Savannah" for a girl.

I think it is great that you are knitting hats for cancer patients :)

Zumba looked like it would kill me when I peered through the windows of the room.

You have political shenanigans going on at school? Can I bring a placard? ;-)

Zumba is actually a lot of fun if you get a good instructor. GREAT exercise. Dublin was a lot of fun for me. Not sure I'd live there, though. :)

I'm not lucky at the casinos. I've gone to Atlantic City a few times to gamble (I grew up outside of it so I've been there many many times) but I never seem to win. My parents have won a few times. My favorite is when my parents went down as they were getting a free gift from the Rewards Program and decided to play a few bucks and my Dad won 1k on a nickle machine. He was so excited he called me at work! (and also shared).
