Livin' La Vida Loca


1) Ricky Martin sings that he and the girl dance in the rain. Do you feel like dancing this morning? I could get my groove on

2) The lyrics tell us the girl prefers champagne. When did you last enjoy a glass of the bubbly? I cannot remember
 
3) When Ricky first heard "Livin' La Vida Loca," he imagined the subject of the song was a "Bond girl," the glamorous love interest of James Bond in the movies. Since 1962, there have been more than 20 Bond films. Have you seen any/many of them? Do you have a favorite Bond? I have not seen any past Pierce Brosnan, I think my favorite was Sean Connery
 
4) Ricky tells interviewers that when he was very young, he'd sing in the family kitchen, pretending a wooden spoon was his microphone. Crazy Sam admits to lip synching into a black Magic Marker. When you gave imaginary concerts, what did you use as a microphone? I don't remember using a microphone

5) Ricky began working at the tender age of 9, performing in commercials. How old were you when you received your first paycheck? if babysitting counts, I was twelve or thirteen

6) Ricky does yoga to stay in shape. Have you ever tried yoga? I have but I hate exercise

7) Ricky is of primarily Spanish descent, with a little French mixed in. When you think of French cuisine, what comes to mind? croissants and bread
 
8) Ricky once had his own restaurant, Casa Salsa, in Miami Beach. Have you ever worked in food service? I worked as a hostess and waitress at a local restaurant in the 1990s, in the 1980s I worked at an ice cream shop
 
9) Random question: What is your best quality? I am a great listener

  2. #9 A friend worked at a Dairy Queen, she used to give us free ice cream cones when the boss wasn't there.

  4. I need to get back on the treadmill. I was doing well and then had a bad chronic pain episode and had to stop. Time to try it again, I suppose.

  5. Yoga is not for wimps. I was totally shocked by how HARD it was.

  6. "I hate exercise." So far, you win for Saturday's most honest answer!

  7. I think working in an ice cream shop would be fun. Did you get free ice cream?

  8. Baby sitting does, indeed, count. It is an incredibly important job.
    Yoga can be as gentle as you need it to be. "Lilias Yoga and You" was on PBS, and is now on YouTube. She was my "teacher" when I started. Very gentle.

    I'm really glad we are friends. When I think of the world getting better, I think of you and teachers like you who are making a big difference.
