saturday 9


1) In this song Jimmy sings of "booze in the blender." What do you prepare in your blender? smoothies

2) As the song opens, Jimmy is sitting on his front porch swing. Describe the front porch of the building you're in right now. it's a wrap-around porch, perfect for the comfy Adirondack chairs that are on it--it is shielded by well-tended hedges

3) Jimmy sings of being able to smell boiling shrimp. Do you prefer your shrimp boiled, glazed or breaded? I like boiled

4) During the song, he mentions his flip flops. Have you put your flip flops and sandals away till spring? Or is it still warm enough to wear them? I'm a die-hard flip flop fan, I will wear them until the snow flies.

5) Jimmy Buffett had hoped this song would be recorded by Elvis Presley, but The King died before he could perform it. What's the first Elvis song that comes to mind? "Blue Suede Shoes"

6) Buffett fans are known as Parrotheads. Concert attire for a well-dressed Parrothead often includes a Hawaiian shirt and a foam fin hat. What will you be wearing tonight? probably what I'm wearing now--a crushed velvet jacket and pants

7) Loyal Parrotheads paid between $500 and $5000 to see Mr. Buffet at a fundraiser for Barack Obama's 2012 Presidential campaign. What's the most you would pay for a concert ticket? I would pay $200 to see U2

8) Jimmy is an outspoken environmentalist and supports causes like ocean conservation, saving the manatees and expanding the Dallas Zoo. What steps do you take to help save the planet? I use my own shopping bags and recycle any plastic bags I get when shopping

9) Uh-oh. When Jimmy and the Coral Reefers played in Wisconsin this past August, more than two dozen concertgoers got tickets for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Do you believe pot should be legalized? I think it should be legalized and regulated--the government could make a ton of money!

Every time I go to a conference or convention I come back with a ton of reusable bags- which I use too.

I used to love concerts but as I got older they have become just too loud for my tastes,

About the only thing I use my blender for is processing cranberries that I use for a Cranberry Waldorf Salad that I make at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I genuinely enjoy Jimmy Buffett's music, but I've never seen him in concert, probably because I don't enjoy drunk people!
