Crazy Little Thing Called Love

1) In this video, Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury is wearing a leather jacket. Do you have a leather jacket? I do not

2) There's a statue of Freddie in Switzerland. There's another statue of him above the Dominion Theater in London. Tell us about a statue or memorial in your town. the local movie theater is named after a race horse--does that count?

3) Mercury said this song was inspired by Elvis Presley. What's your favorite Elvis song? oh, there are so many... "A Little Less Conversation" sprang to mind first

4) This song was covered by the animated Alvin and the Chipmunks. Do you still watch cartoons? occasionally

5) The members of Queen met while attending Ealing Art College in London. Are you still in touch with the friends you had in your late teens and early 20s? as a matter of fact, yesterday I got together with some friends and we realized it's been more than 20 years since we've all been together! We had so much fun catching up.

6) During Queen's hey day in the 1980s, Mercury stayed in shape with tennis and swimming. Are you more accomplished on the court or in the pool? well... back in the day I was an ok tennis player. Now I guess I'd go with floating around in the pool.

7) In 1980, when this song was popular, Brooke Shields made a jeans commercial where she said, "Nothing comes between me and Calvins." It actually only aired for a short time because so many viewers called and complained about it. Have you ever called or emailed to protest something you saw on TV? I have not

8) 1980 is also the year the Post-It note was introduced. What's the last Post-It you wrote? I use them frequently... the last one I wrote was a smiley face and a heart that I mailed to my niece to let her know I was thinking about her.

9) Random question: Do you blush easily? I do

I have a group of friends like that too. We've been eating lunch monthly for over 20 years

I can't imagine you watching cartons. I laughed out loud...

Of course it counts. John R Braden was such a beautiful horse. Did someone say something about cookies? yum!

I was floating around the lake today and the water was a little too cold for me. I only stayed in for about 15 minutes... Brr
