Some Guys Have All the Luck

1) Do you consider yourself lucky? yes because I am lucky to be alive--my doctor caught pulmonary emboli

2) When did you last risk money in a game of chance (lottery, raffle ticket, slot machine, etc.)? How did you do? I bought a raffle ticket to help the Project Graduation fundraising effort

3) There's a major football game this weekend. Will you be watching? Do you have any money riding on the outcome? the only money I have riding on this contest is if the Patriots win, Dunkin' Donuts discounts coffee for perks rewards members

4) The composer of this song, Jeff Fortgang, is an interesting guy who's had two disparate careers: first pop musician, then Yale-educated clinical psychologist. It's possible that many of the patients who see him for help with anxiety or depression have no idea that he wrote this song. What's something your coworkers (or, if you're not working, casual friends) would be surprised to know about you? people would be shocked to see how messy my house is

5) Similarly, fans are often surprised to learn that this week's featured artist, Rod Stewart, is a history buff who loves reading about WWII. Is there a period of time or historic event that has captured your interest? I love early American history

6) Rod met his current wife as the result of a dare. Penny Lancaster, then in her 20s, spotted the decades-older celebrity in a bar and only approached him because her friends bet her she didn't have the guts to talk to him. Are you, like Penny, vulnerable to peer pressure? Can your friends talk you into doing things you might not otherwise do? I'm the one to talk my friends into doing crazy stuff

7) Rod vividly recalls being 11 years old and going to see Little Richard perform in a film comedy called The Girl Can't Help It. When you were a kid, did you enjoy going to the movies? What do you recall seeing? I loved going to the movies as a kid! Especially screwball comedies

8) The lyrics tell of when Rod's car overheats and he calls a friend, who doesn't come through. Tell us about a time recently when you were there and helped a buddy out. my friend needed a lift

9) The lyrics mention that "some guys do nothing but complain." Who do you know who is like that? Do you have a friend, relative or coworker who just always seems to find fault? Oh, lord--just head into the teacher's room during period 4 lunch (the math and science teachers bitch and moan)

You are welcome to come see my messy bits, too. Stylish wear is hard hats and knee guards.

You are definitely lucky and/or blessed!
Early American history is my favorite, too.
I liked screwball comedies, too...especially ones with an ensemble cast like "Canonball Run."

I am glad you're here! Thankful for your doctors. Have a feeling we might make a troubling twosome as I'm another instigator.

I bet that your part of the country is all over the Super Bowl frenzy.I sure wish that my team could have had a better year.
