I'm Moving On

1) In this song, Chyvonne Scott sings that she's sick of her lover's "conniving." Tell us about a time you felt deceived. (It doesn't have to involve romance.) ugh... at school a colleague revealed something I told him in confidence and another teacher "came to the source" because my name was "being bandied about"

2) She realizes it's time to move on to another love. What's your favorite love song? Is it about a relationship that's running smoothly? Or is it like "I'm Moving On," about an unhappy love affair? It might be Tell Her This by Del Amitri

3) Though Chyvonne Scott enjoyed only limited success as a recording artist, she was very popular in New York clubs. When did you most recently listen to music performed live? about six months ago I heard a local band play--it was great fun!

4) In 2017, this song appeared on a Samsung commercial that poked fun at rival iPhone. Is your cell phone an Apple or Android? How did you choose your phone? I have an Apple because I had a lot of other Apple products

5) Chyvonne is an unusual name. In 1965, when this song was first released, the most popular baby names in the US were Michael and Lisa. Do you have any Michaels or Lisas in your life? I will have a Michael in class next year and a former student's mom's name is Lisa (and we're friendly)

6) Also in 1965, Winston Churchill died. In researching this week's Sat. 9, Sam discovered a Churchill quote that's new to her: "I am always ready to learn although I do not always like being taught." Share something interesting that you recently learned. I learned a hair styling technique that makes my hair look fuller

7) In 1965, one of the most successful movies ever made, The Sound of Music, was released. Have you ever seen it?
I can say the lines along with the actors

8) Lava lamps were already popular in England and Brussels, but in 1965 they were introduced in the US. Do you think lava lamps are cool?
indeed I do!

9) Random question -- You have to buy something very personal that you find embarrassing. Would you rather pay cash for it, so your identity would be unknown but you'd have to face the cashier? Or order it online, where you could avoid looking anyone in the eye, but you have to share your name and address? I would probably buy online for the sake of convenience--I truly cannot think of anything I would buy that would embarrass me

I listened to Del Amitri a lot during a painful breakup, so I kinda avoided them. But considering that was decades ago, and I enjoy them a lot, maybe it's time to revisit them!

Pssst! The item that inspired #9 was a vibrator. My friend Kathy wanted to know what store sold them. I recommended a website and she said, "But then they'll know my name!"

I missed your Sunday Stealing answers last week...your big chance to post a picture of George!

I had someone do that to me, they found out I was trans and the day I left the company he sent an email to the entire company outing me.
I got tons of congratulations from many of the employees and from what I heard he got a cold shoulder.

Sorry about the issue at school; people are cruel and strange and … human I guess, but golly you'd think we could learn some manners.

There is not much that would embarrass me either. I love lava lamps too. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend!

I seem to be the only one who is not in love with The Sound of Music. I like musicals, but that one does nothing for me. :/
