My Favorite Things

1) This week's artist, Jennie Abrahamson, is very happy living in Stockholm, but she refers to Paris as "a flirt." She enjoys her time there so much she always wants to return. Is there a place you've visited that tugs at your heart and imagination, tempting you to return? Ahhh, Ireland is the home of my heart

2) Jennie has said her music has been heavily influenced by 80s pop, which was popular in her early teen years. Are your favorite songs the ones you listened to when you were growing up? the bands are the same but I like some of their 90s songs/albums better

3) "My Favorite Things" is from The Sound of Music. Crazy Sam's high school claim to fame was playing Sister Margaretta in the senior class production. Though not a big part, her performance lives on because relatives love embarrassing her with pictures of her in an especially unflattering nun's habit. Who took an embarrassing photo of you? What were you doing? I was doing something random at school

4) The lyrics celebrate "brown paper packages tied up in strings." What was in the last box you received in the mail?
some yarn

5) It mentions doorbells and sleighbells. What's the most recent bell or alarm that you heard? a car alarm

6) This song has nice things to say about cold weather, specifically snowflakes and mittens. What do you like about winter? when it's over

7) Dog bites and bee stings are singled out as things that can leave us feeling sad. What's most recently given you the blues?

8) In 2018, when this song was released, Roger Federer won the Australian Open. Are you good with a racket?
I used to play and was enthusiastic if not talented

9) Random question -- Your local zoo announced the hatching of three snowy owlets. All males. You won the honor of naming them. Go ahead. Rickman, Bowie, and Hughes

OK, I had to google "Hughes." You're too high brow for me, Ms. Kwiz.

And I think enthusiasm is a great quality in a tennis player!

I don't know who Hughes is either but I'm too sorry to google. :-)

Lori said...

YES!!! #8...that is me...always enthusiastic. Not anymore though. I do not want to play tennis these days. Hahahaha
Love your owl names! Have a nice weekend! Loved your answers!
