saturday 9


1) Is there a mirror in the room you're in now? there is not
2) In this song, Justin Timberlake tells his lover he just can't wait till they're together. What are you eagerly looking forward to today? having a leisurely day
3) Justin Timberlake is known as a sharp dresser who is always on trend. What item have you recently added to your wardrobe? a navy blue t-shirt

4) Justin was an accomplished child performer who appeared on the entertainment competition show Star Search when he was just 11. When Crazy Sam was 11, her only job was loading and unloading the dishwasher, for which she received an allowance from her dad. Did you have chores when you were a kid? my chore was the family's laundry
5) He says he tries never to miss breakfast, even on the road, and his favorite is peanut butter banana pancakes. Given the choice, do you prefer pancakes, french toast, or waffles? it depends on the time of day--for breakfast, waffles, for brunch, french toast, and for dinner, pancakes

6) When they were still in their teens, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears were sweethearts. Obviously it's been easy for him to keep up with her successes and problems over the years. Do you wonder what one of your exes is up to? yes but I don't lose sleep over it--we parted on excellent terms and just drifted apart over the years
7) In 2013, when this song was popular, Pope Benedict resigned. Thinking of your working life, have you felt greater stress on your first day at a job, or your last? I felt greater stress since Covid

8) Also in 2013, the NHL owners reached an agreement with the players union and avoided a strike. Have you ever belonged to a union? I do--I was the chief negotiator for several contracts

9) Random question: When was one of the first times when you felt like an adult?  when I realized I overpacked for my trip to Ireland back in 1987

Good for you, being involved with your union! I'm watching the WGA strike in Hollywood closely. I don't think the average person understands the ramifications of AI and ChatGPT on writers and it's time like this that unions are ESPECIALLY important!

#9: Uh oh. I still overpack for every trip (and, conversely, am always forgetting something).

It's amazing they had little you standing on a chair to do laundry!

I'm an over packer, too. I loathe packing and trying to decide what to take.

CountryDew said...

I always overpack, too. And then I have to wash everything when I get home, even if I didn't wear it.

Bev Sykes said...

Yeah, I overpack too. And then don't wear the things I packed!

#5 I just made pancakes this morning and I put strawberries and whipped cream on them.
#8 Good for you!

I also like pancakes with a little bit more Oooomph in them. Yours are keepers, I can tell.
The union for teachers really changed things. I'm so glad that your school has teachers with such a great rep!
