saturday 9

Who Are You?

1) This song, originally recorded by The Who, was the theme of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, which ran from 2000 to 2015. Did you watch it? Were you a fan? I have never seen an episode

2) When the show premiered, Gil Grissom (William Petersen) was the CSI team's supervisor. Gil's mother was deaf, and so he was fluent in American Sign Language. Can you communicate using ASL?  I used to be fluent but I haven't used it in decades and can't really remember

3) His assistant is blood-splatter analyst Catherine Willows (Marg Helgenberger). Catherine's family moved often, which made it hard for her to get traction in her studies. She finally just dropped out of high school. She later got her GED, and even graduated from college. Have you ever considered going back to school? well, as a teacher I go back to school often--but for furthering my education, no
4) Though set in Las Vegas, most of CSI was filmed in Santa Clarita, CA. Santa Clarita is also home to Six Flags Magic Mountain amusement park. Do you enjoy roller coasters? I used to but now I get vertigo and it wouldn't be a good idea

5) The vocalist on the CSI theme, Roger Daltry of the Who, made a cameo appearance on the show during season 7. Do you have a favorite Who song? I enjoy Who Are You

6) CSI became a franchise, followed by CSI: Miami and CSI: New York. If we could organize a Saturday 9 field trip, which of these CSI cities would you prefer we visit: Las Vegas, Miami or New York? I think I'd like to see Las Vegas with this crew!

7) In 2000, the last original Peanuts comic strip was published. How many Peanuts characters can you name? I can name almost all of them: Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Woodstock, Sally, Lucy, Linus, Schroeder, Franklin, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, Pig Pen, The Red-Haired Girl (Charlie Brown's love interest)... 

8) Also in 2000, media giant Time Warner merged with America Online, the email provider. It's estimated that 74% of us check our email at least once/day. Are you one of the 74%? I check more than once a day!

9) Random question -
- Did you more recently cut and paste, or delete? cut and paste

Oh, Kwiz! Let's go to Vegas. We can make it a theme trip, since there's a CSI exhibit at the MGM Grand.

How did you happen to be prolific in ASL?

Woodstock! That's the little bird's name. I couldn't remember it. Good job. I wonder what a Saturday 9 get-together would look like? Hmm.

You're right, this would be a fun crew in Vegas!
