Cheeseburger In Paradise

From the archives; Repeated in memory of Jimmy Buffett, who died on September 1.

1) In this song, Jimmy Buffett briefly attempts a healthier diet, which included sunflower seeds, carrot juice, zucchini and bulgur wheat. Do you pay attention to your daily consumption of vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, etc.? not nearly the way I should

2) Jimmy sings that he'd like french fries with his burger. Do you prefer to dip your fries or drizzle the ketchup over them? I'm a dipper

3) Which cheese would make yours a cheeseburger in paradise: American, cheddar, Swiss, bleu, Muenster, or Monterrey Jack? I'm a fan of any cheese--so it would depend on my mood
4) Buffett fans call themselves Parrotheads. Concert attire for a well-dressed Parrothead often includes a Hawaiian shirt and a foam fin hat. What will you be wearing tonight? jeans and a t-shirt although I might put on leggings
5) For someone with such an easygoing and laidback vibe, Jimmy is a very busy man. His business ventures include liquors, restaurants and hotels. He's also published eight books. All this in addition to making music! On a scale of 1 to 10 -- with 1 being lazy and 10 being highly motivated -- how would you rate yourself this morning? this morning I would rate myself a 2

6) Jimmy has some very famous fans. Paul McCartney asked him to play at one of his parties, and Barack Obama invited him to perform at a fundraiser. If you could invite anyone -- anyone at all! -- to play at your party, who would you ask? I have lots of qualifiers--is the party about the performers?  Is the party a special occasion?  Where is the party?  Who's invited to the party?

7) Jimmy was born on Christmas Day. Does your birthday fall on a major holiday? If yes, do you mind "sharing" your special day? my birthday is close to Halloween and I LOVE having it then

8) In 1978, the year this song was popular, the Susan B. Anthony Dollar was first minted. The initial design was not a hit with the public because vending machines could not accept it. What's the last thing you bought from a vending machine? a bottle of water

9) Random question -- If today's your birthday, your zodiac sign is Virgo. When did you last check your horoscope? it's been a couple of weeks

Since you're struggling with an artist for your party, let me handle it for you. I bequeath you Ed Sheeran, since you were the one who introduced him to me with mentions on your blog.

I am low in the motivation department also. I feel like I give everything to work. Loved your answers! Have a great weekend. ♥

I thought about all those things with having someone sing at a party, but just went with who I thought would be fun. I don't watch my diet like I should, either. I really should do something about that.

A Halloween birthday does sound like fun

Having to watch what you eat kind of takes the joy right out of the room, doesn't it?
