No Roots

1) This song is about a woman who has moved a lot and is always packing boxes. Do you have packing materials (boxes, bubble wrap, packing tape, etc.) in your home right now? Do you have them on hand to ship things, or are you preparing for a move?  I have them to ship stuff
2) She sings that she moves from place to place, collecting memories. Would you rather travel light and travel often, or put down roots? I like having roots but I also enjoy traveling--roots are my place to come back to

3) She can recall all the gates and house numbers of all the places she's lived. Does your current residence have a fence and gate? Did your previous one? none of my residences have had fences or gates

4) This week's artist, Alice Merton, moved often as a child as her father's job took the family from Germany to the US to Canada to England back to Germany ... She wrote this song to help her deal with feelings of loneliness and longing. When you're feeling overwhelmed, how do you work through the feelings? I usually distract myself--noodling around on the internet, reading, knitting, playing Freecell, or coloring

5) Alice is still on the move. Soon she'll be performing throughout Europe. Have you ever had a job that required you to travel? If yes, did you enjoy it?
I did travel to Florida and I've been all around the great state of Maine and I enjoyed every minute

6) "No Roots" is a favorite of Kelly Clarkson's, who has performed it on tour and on TV. When you think of Kelly, is at as a singer, a judge on The Voice, or as a talk show host? oh, I love Kelly--I think of her as all of those! I voted for her on American Idol!!!
7) In 2017, when this song was popular, Faye Dunaway made Oscar history by announcing the wrong winner for the biggest award of the night, Best Picture. It wasn't her fault as she was given the wrong envelope, but she's one who made the on-screen flub seen around the world. Have you recently had an embarrassing moment? I teach high school--there is plenty of embarrassing moment fodder
8) Wonder Woman was 2017's most popular movie. She was originally introduced in a 1941 DC comic book. Comic books remain a big business. Have you ever been to a comic book store? No, I haven't

9) Random question: Is your skin itchy this morning? no

#4 By I haven't heard Noodling in a long time.
#6 When I was little we used to travel all around Maine and up into Canada to the Cabot Trail. One summer when I was little we stayed in a cottage on Sebago Lake, all I remember is that the water was very cold.
