All Night Long (All Night)

1) This music video was produced by Mike Nesmith of The Monkees. Can you name a Monkees song? "Pleasant Valley Sunday"

2) The song includes the foreign sounding phrases, "Oh jambali Tom bo li d, say de moi ya," and "Oh, Jambo Jumbo!" Mr. Richie meant to include language indigenous to the Caribbean, but was writing the song under deadline and simply made those phrases up instead. Tell about the most recent time you cheated or "cut corners." this morning at Sam's Club my friend let me use her card so I could get club prices

3) Richie was a frat boy at college. Kappa Kappa Psi, to be exact. Were you a member of a fraternity or sorority? not in college but I am in Delta Kappa Gamma now

4) When this song topped the charts (September 1983), Vanessa Williams became the first African American to be crowned as Miss America. Do you watch beauty pageants? not often

5) Since it's Labor Day weekend, that holiday established to celebrate the American worker, let's talk about the workplace. Tellers work in a bank, actors work on a stage or a set, auto workers work on an assembly line. How would you describe your workplace? I teach at a high school

6) An estimated 40% of us have dated a coworker. Have you ever had an office romance? no

7) Labor Day is a big weekend for travel. How did you book your last vacation? (Online, through a travel agent, over the phone ...) I took a day trip to Central Maine--we left at 4:30 this morning and I was home by 3 pm

8) Mother Winters won't wear white again now until next Memorial Day. Sam thinks that's just crazy. Where do you fall in this heated mother/daughter debate? I'll probably wear white after Easter, I don't wait until Memorial Day anymore

9) When you look at back on Summer 2014, what will you remember? I had an awesome, relaxing summer!

We go crazy at Sam's Club. I still wish we had a Costco though.

I don't really know what, but your answer to #5 cracks me up--"I teach at a high school"--maybe because it's so matter-of-fact and we've pretty much all been there although perhaps not recently. ;-)

[I had to delete the first try at a comment because it made zero sense...]

Cat.- Most comments make zero sense. Allison- I loved the "I teach in a high school" myself... ROFL

I'm surprised you haven't had a workplace romance. Teachers' lounge flirtations are such a staple in school based dramas, and students' imaginations.

No romance at work for me, as I didn't work for a long time while single. I married at 20.

I love that you teach.

I've never been in Sam's Club but Costco is like a bazaar. It's wonderful. Very nice of your friend to let you cut that corner.:)
