Jack and Diane

1) The video for this song features lots of snapshots. Do you have many physical photo albums? Or do you store your pictures digitally? I store them digitally
2) This song tells the story of "two American kids growing up in the heartland." Young Jack dreams of being a football star. When you were in high school, did you fantasize about stardom? If yes, what were you going to be famous for? I did not dream of being famous

3) Diane wears Bobbie Brooks slacks (at least briefly). Bobbie Brooks is a popular brand at Walmart. If you had a $50 gift card for Walmart, would you be more likely to use it toward groceries, clothes, household items, or electronics? groceries or new towels

4) They go to the Tasty Freeze. If you were to run out for fast food right now, where would you go? Dunkin' for my coffee fix

5) When John Mellencamp made this record, he was known professionally as "John Cougar," a stage name suggested by his manager. He has said that adopting a stage name is something he regrets. Looking over your life, if you could take a "do over," what one thing would you like to do differently?  I sometimes wonder what if I hadn't left my first teaching job in Western Maine
6) Even though he suffered a heart attack, John Mellencamp continues to smoke, admitting that nicotine is something he simply can't kick. Do you have a habit you wish you could break?
procrastination about household chores
7) John's daughter Teddi was one of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She went on to join the cast of Big Brother. Do you watch any reality shows? I love the Housewives franchises--they are my guilty pleasure

8) In 1982, when this song was popular, William Windsor was born. He's better known by his job title. Without looking it up, do you know who he is? Prince William, Duke of Cambridge
9) Random question: What do you do when you can't sleep? have a snack or watch TikTok videos

Yes, we have the same answer to #6. (I thought we would.)

Oy yes to procrastination of chores! I have never seen any Housewives shows. I do like to watch General Hospital.

Stacy said...

Ugh... procrastination will be my downfall

Lori said...

I do not like household chores either.
How did school go this week? We had meetings. I think I saw you did too. It was boring, but that is over. Kids start Tuesday. I am so excited. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend.

I, too, have become a procrastinator for my household chores. Schedules went right out the window a few years ago and it's giving my anxiety. lol

and now I want a doggone donut. Let's go get an Ice coffee and a couple of donuts and sit by the lake and watch the sun go down. k?
