saturday 9

9 to 5

1) This song begins with the clacking of a typewriter. Did you ever learn to touch type -- beginning with your fingers on "the home row" -- or do you hunt and peck? I did, indeed, learn to touch type--with my fingers in the proper positions on the "home row"

2) Much of the video for this song revolves around the office coffee room. Are you enjoying a beverage as you answer these 9 questions? I am sipping a Dunkin' Donuts iced coffee, which I have daily

3) This week's artist, Dolly Parton, loves telling the story of how she once lost a Dolly Parton lookalike contest. What contest or sweepstakes have you entered lately? I entered a raffle fund-raiser by the local football league

4) Dolly is one smart blonde. Early in her career she set up a company so she could retain the publishing rights for all her songs. Two alone -- "9 to 5" and "I Will Always Love You" -- made her a multi-millionaire because they have been recorded so many times. Do you have a good head for business? I have NO head for business

5) Dolly is a crusader for childhood literacy and her organization, Dolly's Imagination Library, has donated more than 10 million books all over the country. What's the last book you read? I am just about to finish Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty

6) This weekend may offer a golden opportunity for napping and sleeping in. Do you snore? I have been told I do

7) Labor Day was introduced to celebrate the achievements of the American worker. How many different employers have you had? 8

8) Will you be attending a Labor Day picnic or barbecue? I have nothing like that planned, but I doubt I will

9) Labor Day traditionally marks the beginning of the new school year. When she was a kid, Samantha was crazy for her brand new box of 96 Crayola Crayons. It even had a sharpener in the back! What do you remember about preparing to go back to school? If you're a parent with school-age kids, are they ready? I have been back at school for two weeks and this weekend off is a delight!

When the guy at DD sees me he knows what I order and I drive up to order he says "Your usual? Decaf Ice Coffee?"

How is Truly Madly Guilty? I've read a couple of her books and enjoyed them.

Vacations are always welcome! Enjoy your quiet weekend.

Me, either. No head for business. However, DH does. Lovely that he helped me so much.

Enjoy this long weekend. And I'm following your link to the book as soon as this posts!

So far none of us has a good head for business. Oh well. Maybe you'll win the football raffle and be set for life.
