Broken-Hearted Girl

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) In this song, Beyonce admits her feelings for a man she doesn't want to love. Do you believe we can choose who we love? Or does the heart go its own way? the heart wants what the heart wants--I don't believe you can choose who you love

2) In the video for this song, Beyonce plays with a red rose. Florists report that the most popular colors of roses are: red, white or ivory, yellow, pink, peach or orange, and lavender or purple. Do you have a favorite? I do not have a favorite

3) The video was filmed in Malibu. Southern California is a popular vacation destination. Have you ever visited there? Have you ever lived there? I have been to the Sacramento area
4) When Beyonce was just 12, she appeared on the show Star Search as part of a vocal group called Girls Tyme. The girls lost, but Beyonce said the experience taught her that she wanted to be a performer for the rest of her life. Share a memory from your own junior high years. my 7th grade social studies teacher inspired my love of all things Ireland--I was utterly fascinated by his descriptions of the Emerald Isle
5) As a girl, she helped her hairstylist mom by sweeping hair at the salon. Do you have a hair appointment coming up? funnily enough, I was thinking about making an appointment for a trim, but no, I don't have an appointment scheduled
6) In 2009, when this song was popular, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg unsuccessfully tried to buy Twitter. Elon Musk acquired Twitter last month. What social media sites do you spend the most time on? I spend the most time on Facebook and Instagram
7) Also in 2009, Sony sold floppy disks at most retailers. But things change fast in the world of tech and by 2011, Sony quit producing floppy disks altogether. Floppies were replaced by flash drives, which have been replaced by cloud storage services ... Do you still have any floppy disks? I finally cleared all the floppies out of my desk at school

8) In 2009, Michael Jackson died. Do you have a favorite Michael Jackson song? I don't
9) Random question -- We're having a Saturday 9 potluck lunch! What will you bring? is there a theme to the pot luck?  I will offer to bring paper goods--plates, flatware, napkins, cups

That is a GREAT idea for the potluck! I am challenged when it comes to all things culinary, and will have to remember that.

I usually have to bring the paper goods--plates, flatware, napkins, cups in addition to the food.

Oh yeah, we have something to eat on! I think we have a good feast going.

Instagram ... yes! So many knitters and bird watchers there.
And, our teachers certainly inspire us. Also, I think it's time to get rid of the floppies, and well start in on that soon. They just sort of are thin and don't take up much room... lol
