You're No Good

1) This week's featured artist, Linda Ronstadt, turns 69 next month. Will you be celebrating any family/friend birthdays this summer? I believe there are two such family gatherings this summer

2) Linda sings that she's learned her lesson and it's left a scar. Tell us how you got one of your scars. I had a suspicious mole removed from my left lower thigh and there is a small scar from it

3) This song is about a lover who is, obviously, no good. Let's be more positive. Who is the nicest person you know? my bestie

4) Linda says that she grew up on Mexican music, which was sung by her entire family. Do you speak any Spanish? no habla

5) She toured often throughout her career and is quoted as saying, "they haven't invented a word for that loneliness that everybody goes through on the road." Are you missing someone right now? yes

6) Ms. Ronstadt was once involved with George Lucas of Star Wars fame. Who is your favorite Star Wars character? I was a major R2D2 fan

7) In 1974, when this song was a hit, The Magic 8 Ball was still a top-seller at toy stores. It retailed for just $1.99, and promised that all you had to do was gaze at it, concentrate, and wait to learn your fate ... "if you dare!" If you could get an answer to one question about the future, what would you ask? "Will the weather be hot this summer?"

8) 1974 is the year when Mikhail Baryshnikov defected to the United States. Have you ever been to the ballet? I have been to one semi-professional ballet (there were some professionals and some advanced dancers) when I lived in Ireland

9) Random question: What's your shoe size? I have Fred Flintstone feet: 10w

Whew, another Star Wars fan. I was starting to worry. I like R2D2, also, but being a fan of "strong women" I had to pick Princess Leia.

I have flat feet, too! And heel spurs and a bunion on my right foot. I think the reason I like pedis so much is that I want to pretty up my afflictions.

I got you beat... 11W

Paula said...

I have bad feet too!! I cannot believe Linda is going to be 69! WOW

Well with your feet you'd be driving the car back in the Flintstones' time. :)

I am Harriet said...

I am with you on the no habla thing :)

I think in relation to answer number 7, I'd have to ask if Scotland is getting a summer AT ALL! It's unusually cold for the time of year!

Jodi said...

Ditto on the no habla thing!

I totally missed the boat on the star wars characters. And if you asked the ball about summer weather you were hoping for cooler, right? You don't have to answer that. Loved to read your answers not the scar one though. I need a nap!
