Baby's in Black

1) Black is this week's signature color because Friday was "Black Friday," the day when retailers cut their prices and consumers flock to the stores. Did you score any "Black Friday" bargains? I did no shopping today

2) Feasting and football are also popular Thanksgiving weekend pastimes. Do your Thursday-Sunday plans include pigging out or watching a game? no pigging out and no football (or other games)

3) At Thanksgiving dinners, Crazy Sam's homemade gravy is always a hit. (Probably because she's so generous with the cognac, which gives the gravy a nutty taste.) What was particularly delicious at your Thanksgiving table? the mashed potatoes were especially creamy and good

4) Among the biggest the Black Friday advertisers are Target, Kohl's, Macy's and Best Buy. If you could have a $100 gift card to any one of those stores, which would you choose? I would choose Target because you can get everything there!

5) This week's song, "Baby's in Black," is about a girl who wears black because she's in mourning. Do you find that the color you're wearing reflects your mood?
hmmm...I don't know that there is a mood that goes with this color (kind of a mossy green)

6) The woman who inspired this song, Astrid Kirchherr, has been friends with Paul McCartney since he and his bandmates (John Lennon, George Harrison, Stu Sutcliffe and Pete Best) met her in Hamburg back in 1960. Tell us what you believe are the components of a strong, lasting friendship. celebrating each other's successes and lamenting each other's losses

7) In the early days of the Beatles, Paul McCartney and John Lennon began writing a play but abandoned it. Do you have a novel, painting, play, song or poem that you're going to finish "someday?" nope

8) When he was 16, George Harrison dreamed of moving to Canada, Australia or Malta. In just a few years, he would visit all those places with Beatles and eventually decided there was no place like home and stayed in England (though he did also maintain a home in Hawaii). Have you ever thought about moving to another country? If so, where? I would move to Ireland in a heartbeat

9) Random question: Finish this sentence -- If you want me to give you "yes" for an answer, the best time to approach me is _____________________. it depends on if it's school related or personal

A mood for mossy green....maybe a stay-home-don't-want-to-be-bothered mood?

I wonder how it would feel to be an American living in a foreign land now, when the country is in so much trouble. Would it be a relief to be away from the tweets? Or would I feel derelict in my responsibilities somewhat?

Ireland sounds perfect. I've never been, I'll bet it's magical.

I would like to try Iceland, it sounds like a nice place to retire to.

I think Ireland is a good choice.

I"m down for Ireland, too, except that now that NATO is falling apart, it's a little too close to Russia. ;o)
Loved your answer to 6. That's exactly the right sort of friendship. Perfect.

I love your answer for #6! Why can't people just be happy for each other's success? Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend.
