Cardigan

1) When she's feeling low, Taylor Swift compares herself to an old cardigan, forgotten under the bed. Do you store anything under your bed? Or do you try to keep that area clear (except for dust bunnies)? I have a couple of "under the bed chests" full of wrapping paper and incidental stuff

2) The lyrics begin with a reference to a new phone. Do you foresee yourself getting a new phone before 2021 ends? Or are you happy with the one you've got? I love my phone
 
3) She sings that her lover haunts all of her "what if's." Have you recently wondered, "what if?" What were you musing about? I wondered about "what if" I wore jeans to school? And the answer was nothing happened, it was a non-issue.

4) Taylor Swift admits that she rewinds after concerts by watching Friends reruns. What do you do to relax? I noodle around on the internet, knit, or read--or watch guilty-pleasure tv 

5) Thinking of TV shows, Taylor appeared on a 2009 episode of CSI. That series was about crime-scene investigators who use forensics to solve murders. Do you enjoy crime shows?
yes--I especially enjoy the Law & Order series

6) Taylor grew up on an 11-acre tree farm where she learned to ride. Her mother was a horsewoman and hoped riding was a passion they could share. When she was 12, Taylor admitted to her mother that she really wasn't that into it and wished she could spend more time on her music. Her mother was supportive. Tell us about a tough conversation you've had that turned out well.  I had a tough conversation with a colleague this week--he's seemed super stressed out and I wanted to touch base with him

7) She enjoys good, old-fashioned mysteries, especially those by Agatha Christie. Are you currently reading a book? I'm reading Early Morning Riser by Katherine Heiny

8) In 2020, the year this song was released, Jeopardy host Alex Trebek died. The search for a new host has caused interest and even controversy. Would you enjoy the job? oh, I don't know, it looks easy but it's not

9) Random question: Of Superman's three superpowers -- tremendous strength, the ability to fly, and x-ray vision -- which would you choose? today I'm going with the ability to fly

  1. Ah, Law & Order. I can watch the same episodes again and again! In fact, my cat Reynaldo was named after Benjamin Bratt's character, Det. Reynaldo Curtis.

  2. I have never watched an episode of Law and Order. There's just not enough time in a day to do everything I want to do and see all I want to see, I guess.

  3. Our school district changed over to jeans last year for everyday around January or so. We have to wear a professional shirt, but we can wear jeans...of course Friday is school shirt and jeans. Many teachers still dress up. It is hard to change that. I bought some colored jeans so I do have jeans on, it just looks nicer. Loved your answers! I am going to get that Daisy Jones and the Six audio book, thank-you for letting me know that you liked it. Have a great weekend.

  5. #3 I get getting psyched up over something all the time and usually it is all for nothing. As you say, "A non-event."
