Molly Malone

1) Are you of Irish descent? I am

2) Legend has it that the heroine of this week's Irish ballad was a real lass. 17th century birth and burial records confirm that a woman with that name lived in Dublin. Can you think of another song about a real historic figure? Joan of Arc by Leonard Cohen

3) Molly sold fish from a cart that she wheeled through the streets. What's the last seafood you ate? I had an egg roll with shrimp in it

4) The lyrics tell us that, after her death, her ghost continues to wander the streets of Dublin with her wheel barrow. Do you believe in ghosts?
I do not

5) This week's featured band, The Dubliners, are obviously from Dublin. They were introduced to American audiences on The Ed Sullivan Show. Today, Stephen Colbert tapes his show in The Ed Sullivan Theater. Who hosted the last talk show you watched?
Andy Cohen

6) Corned beef and cabbage is a traditional St. Patrick's Day dish. Is it a favorite of yours? it's all right--I like colcannon a lot, too

7) According to Irish legend, leprechauns earned the gold in the pot they guard by repairing shoes. Crazy Sam can't remember the last time she got a pair of shoes repaired. When the heels wear away, she discards the shoes and buys new ones. What about you? Do you get your shoes fixed (either by leprechauns or just by ordinary repairmen)? there are no cobblers in my vicinity

8) Do you look good in green, the signature color of St. Patrick's Day? yes, it's one of my signature colors

9) Random question: Did you more recently sneeze or cough? neither--I blew my nose

I had to go a couple of towns over to find a cobbler to fix a boot heel.

The most polite Sat 9er - blowing her nose instead of coughing or sneezing. :-)

Yes, to colcannon! I haven't had it in ages, but it is yummy comfort food.
I am sure you look great in green. For some reason I don't wear a lot of it.

It's too bad that cobblers are disappearing.

Ah, both cobbler's and watch makers are a dying breed. And the world rushes on, and on..
Green should be a lovely color for you to wear, with your eyes and strawberry blonde hair.
So, you don't believe in ghosts. What sort of Irish are you? Just Kidding!
Have a great week, Kwizgiver. ♥!
