See You Later, Alligator

1) Crazy Sam's mother is terrified of alligators. Just looking at a photo of one of those scaly reptiles gives her the creeps. Is there a member of the animal kingdom that scares you? I don't know that I'm scared of them, but birds freak me out

2) Gators are carnivores, but they aren't picky. If meat isn't handy, they'll munch on fruit. Are you particular about your diet? For example, do you try to eat gluten free, low sodium, etc.? I'm not particular

3) In Spain, this song was a hit under the title, "Hasta Luego, Cocodrilo." Say something else in Spanish. I always refer to my students as "muchachos"

4) When this week's artist, Bill Haley, was a little boy, he made a guitar out of cardboard and pretended to play that until his parents got him a real one. Tell us about something you wanted so badly when you were a kid. Oh, how I wanted a Sweet April doll

5) Early in his career, Bill did whatever it took to get the gig. When singing cowboys were popular, the Michigan native pretended to be a cowpoke and renamed himself, "Silver Yodeling Bill." Have you ever fudged on your resume or fibbed in an interview? no to either

6) When his career was going well, Bill was generous and loved to give extravagant parties at his home, which he called Melody Manor. Do you enjoy playing the host? not even a little

7) Bill was blind in one eye, the result of a botched operation when he was a child. Since the blind eye wandered and didn't focus, he always wore a curl over the opposite eye, hoping to draw everyone's attention to the other side of his face. What is there about your appearance that leaves you self conscious? my double chins

8) On the other hand, what is it about your appearance that pleases you, and that you would never change? my lips

9) In 1956, when this song was a hit, Elvis Presley exploded onto the music scene and displaced Bill as rock's top artist. The press and public assumed Bill was jealous of Elvis, but in reality he liked Elvis a great deal. Are you jealous by nature? not especially, I get over it quickly

Maybe our inherent coolness will enable us to make double chins chic.

Did you ever get Sweet April?

I always wanted a doll, but I can imagine what would have happened if I asked for one... sigh.

OMG! When I was a really little girl my sister had a bird that would attack me. Now I'm freaked out by birds. Really just the indoor kind. Birds belong outdoors in my opinion.

I don't recall a Sweet April doll. Will have to look that one up.
