Standing on the Corner

1) In this song, four friends congregate on Main Street to look longingly at pretty girls. In your town, where is the best place for people watching? I'm not sure there is a best place... it used to be the mall but that's a ghost town now

2) This song was written for the Broadway musical, The Most Happy Fella. Who is the happiest person you know? Maggie--my parents' dog

3) The members of The Four Lads met at Toronto's St. Michael's Choir School. Growing up, did you attend parochial or public school? public school

4) The Four Lads always wore jackets and ties when they performed. Do you enjoying dressing up? Or would you rather keep it casual? I like to look nice so I don't really know how to answer this--I'm on the dressy side of casual?

5) While this song was a hit for The Four Lads, they were completely overshadowed in 1956 by Elvis Presley and "Heartbreak Hotel." Who do you think dominates today's music scene? I know I'm out of touch with the music scene--I don't know who Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar and other popular rappers

6) The Wizard of Oz aired on TV for the first time in 1956. Sam was never crazy about those flying monkeys. Tell us about something that frightened you when you were a kid.
I watched the Twilight Zone and was scared of the worm that went into someone's ear and ate his brain

7) What scares you now? being on crutches scares me, I don't know how I would manage the staircase to my apartment

8) Since this week's song is about pretty girls: 1956's Miss America was Sharon Ritchie of Colorado. Today Colorado has the distinction of being the home of more microbreweries than any other state in the union. Which are you most particular about -- your beer, your wine, or your coffee? I'm not terribly particular, although I prefer Dunkin' Donuts coffee over Tim Horton's or McDonald's

9) Random question: We all have small, irritating habits, like soup slurping or not replacing the cap on the toothpaste. What's your nasty little habit? I do not chop my salad into bite size pieces, I tend to fold the greens over and shove them in my mouth

Haha! I do that too with my salad, unless eating with someone besides my husband.

It's crazy how malls are becoming ghost towns. They use to be the place to go and people watch.

Love #9.

Isn't it funny that I know Kendrick Lamar on sight but not by his music?

CountryDew said...

You have the best answer to the happy person question.

Oh my gosh! I remember that Twilight Zone episode and it scared me too! Scares me, just thinking about it.

I eat salad that same way and I think it's perfectly acceptable. A little messy if there's salad dressing involved, though.

I remember the Night Gallery with Rod Sterling show about earwigs... it was scary!

Annie said...

Yes, it was earwigs! I still have an overreaction to them . Shudder!
