saturday 9

1) This is from the movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Have you seen it? yes, but I don't remember anything

2) The lyrics tell us that, when love goes wrong, "a match won't light." When did you most recently light a match?  about a week ago, I lit a candle

3) The duet is performed at a French sidewalk cafe, where Jane Russell and Marilyn Monroe are (literally) sharing a cup of coffee. With whom did you most recently have coffee? I was by myself

4) The tune was written by prolific composer Hoagy Carmichael. He was influenced by his mother, who earned extra money for the family playing piano during silent movies. Who in your life influenced your career choices?  my dad was a beloved high school English/Speech/Music teacher

5) Jane and Marilyn shared something beyond movie stardom. They were both married to Hall of Famers. Marilyn Monroe was married to Joe DiMaggio, who was inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame in 1955. Jane was married to quarterback Bob Waterfield, inducted into the football Hall of Fame in 1965. Which sport would you rather watch: baseball or football? in person--baseball, on TV--football

6) Jane and Bob Waterfield were high school sweethearts at Van Nuys High. The Southern California school was used as a set for the 1982 movie, Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Tell us something about your high school.  Uhm--I was on the editorial staff of the yearbook and editor-in-chief my senior year and we sold more books my senior year than they ever have sold 😀

7) Marilyn and Joe DiMaggio met on a blind date at a Hollywood restaurant called Villa Nova. Have you ever arranged a blind date? If so, did the couple hit it off and end up dating? I have not arranged a blind date although I have played matchmaker successfully

8) In 1953, when Gentlemen Prefer Blondes was released, a tornado did severe damage to Waco, TX. Tell us about a major weather event that you endured (tornado, hurricane, flood, blizzard, heat wave, etc.).  blizzards and extreme temperatures with dangerous wind chills

9) Random question: You see a filthy puddle. Floating on top are cigarette butts, a leaf, and a $1 bill. Would you bend over and rescue the dollar? I would not rescue the dollar

Kwiz! You're a best selling author!

So far, I believe you're Sat 9's only matchmaker.

My dad was beloved also. I work in the same district, so I run into people all of the time that want to tell me how great my dad was. I love it because he passed away 3 years ago this month and I get to hear new stories from people. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend!

I can agree with you on sports!

I am so ambivalent about the $1.

I didn't think of it that way, but I've also done some successful matchmaking. Years ago I met one of my husband's coworkers at the time and told my husband he'd be perfect for his sister. He ignored me so I invited them both to dinner. They just celebrated their 24th anniversary!
