Promises, Promises

1) In this week's song, Naked Eyes lead singer Pete Byrne admits he believed his girl's promises, right from the start, but now he knows he should have been more careful with his heart. Do you consider yourself more trusting or skeptical? definitely skeptical
2) He looks back on when he and his girl laughed like kids. When did you recently literally laugh out loud (opposed to keystroking LOL)? just today--starting at the nail salon
3) He accuses her of not being able to finish what she starts. How about you? Do you finish what you start, or can you think of projects that you're unlikely to ever complete? I generally finish what I start--although I have a couple of knitting projects that might not see the finish line

4) Naked Eyes was a British New Wave band who had four Top 40 singles, including "Promises, Promises." They never toured 40 years ago because it was difficult to recreate their synthesizer-driven sound onstage. Is there a band or singer you would have liked to have seen perform live, but never did? Prince
5) While "Promises, Promises" is about an untrustworthy lover, Peter Byrne says he and bandmate/cowriter Rob Fisher worked well together because they knew they could trust one another professionally. By sharing honest assessments of creative ideas, they knew Naked Eyes would never put out "rubbish." If you want an honest opinion on something important, where do you turn? if it's work-related, I ask my trusted colleague (or sometimes my students)

6) Madonna was a Naked Eyes fan. Are you a Madonna fan? I am

7) In 1983, when this song was on the radio, the Lotus 1-2-3 program made it easier for PC users to build spreadsheets. Are you answering these questions on a PC or a Mac? Laptop or desktop? Android or iPhone? PC laptop and I have an iPhone
8) Also in 1983, America West Airlines took off for the first time, taking passengers from Las Vegas to Phoenix. Where did you go on your first flight? What about your most recent flight? my first flight was to Philadelphia, PA--I was heading to a cousin's wedding and my most recent flight was the return home from Tampa (almost a year ago)

9) Random question -- Finish this statement: If I knew then what I know now, I would have ______________.  gone for it

#3: I've got a love sweater to finish. I'm sort of afraid of doing it now. Madonna does have a lovely voice. true.

Happy knitting, my knitting bud.
