Straight Up

1) In this song, Paula sings about being in a dream. Did you dream last night? I had a weird social media based dream last night

2) When Paula enrolled at California State University, she planned on studying broadcasting and becoming a reporter. Think about your career aspirations when you were 19. Did you follow through and stay on track or, like Paula, did you veer off and find success elsewhere? I didn't have a real career goal at 19

3) For a while she was a "Laker Girl" and performed at L.A. Laker games. Do you have a favorite NBA team? no, I don't enjoy basketball

4) Paula was once married to Brad Beckerman of Stillhouse Spirits, a company that specializes in whiskey. What's your favorite alcoholic beverage? lately it's been Barefoot white zinfandel

5) Paula has been dancing since age 8 and, as you can see from the video, Paula moves very well in heels. Tell us about your most comfy shoes. they are sandals

6) Paula admits it was her passion for jewelry and that inspired her to design her own line for QVC and Avon. What is your favorite thing to go shopping for? clothes, accessories, books, and yarn!

7) She advises young girls to "keep the faith and don't lose your gut instinct." How about you? Are you more logical or instinctive? I am a balance of both

8) In May, Paula traveled to Austria for The Life Ball, a fundraiser to help those afflicted with HIV/AIDS. When is the last time you left the country? I went to Canada a year ago

9) Paula Abdul is a spokeswoman for Avon's "Go Check Yourself" campaign for breast health awareness. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Do you know anyone who has been touched by this disease? my dear friend battled it and I knit her a wardrobe of hats--happily, she is clear now and has passed the hats on to others

Yarn shopping? Brings back memories of shopping with my mom--I hadn't thought about the yarn store in eons. ;-)

i used to love to shop for books when we actually had brick and mortar shops--borders was my favorite! but now that those shops are all gone, i don't know...it's different. i don't care for shopping for books online, so haven't been book shopping in a long time. :(

But for you Canada is right across town. I would think you would be going to Canada more often.

Ah! Yarn shopping. Me, too! And also, since others mentioned these, I like to go looking for shoes and things on line.

A social media dream is kind of weird. Unless it involved George and a manicure of course.

I love that supportive gesture of hand knitted hats for your friend, and that she passed them on.

I am glad your friend is doing well. You must have been very helpful to her, and a good friend, to help her out so. Plus you can knit!
