Something More

1) Sugarland's lead singer Jennifer Nettles describes a busy morning that begins with a cup of coffee. Do you start your day with a cup of joe? my morning ritual includes a trip to Dunkin' for an iced coffee--it's a daily indulgence

2) When she gets home from work, she sings that her house is dirty but says housework can wait until she has a glass of wine. Is there a particular chore on your "to-do" list that you keep putting off? scrubbing the bathroom floor or replacing the shower liner are top of my list

3) The lyrics tell us happiness is something we can create. Do you agree? somewhat--with dysthymic disorder, I am leery of toxic positivity

4) In the video of this week's song, the members of Sugarland ride along in a vintage Cadillac. Are you one of those drivers who has a nickname for your car? no, I don't although she is a female

5) The group hitches a ride in a red truck. The auto insurance industry tells us that Americans favor vehicles in the grayscale colors. Nearly 80% of cars on the road today are white, black, gray or silver. What color is your vehicle? gray

6) Nettles achieved her dream of performing on Broadway when she took over the role of Roxy in Chicago. What's your fantasy job? retirement

7) She wrote a cookbook with her mom called Sweet, Savory and Simple. When it was originally published, it was spiral bound. That way, it could be laid flat on the counter as the cook tries one of the recipes. How many cookbooks do you own? oh--that's a good question!  I have seven 
8) In 2005, when "Something More" was topping the country charts, Paul McCartney won a People's Choice Award for his concert tour. Do you have any plans to enjoy music performed live between now and the end of the year? I will be attending the Caribou Choral Society's annual Christmas concert as well as my father's annual holiday musicale

9) Random question: Who received the most recent compliment you gave? the administration at school when I told them the climate is shifting in positive ways

I'm not surprised you personify your car. You take such good care of it and it's your buddy on road trips.

"Toxic positivity." I have to watch that. Sometimes in my zeal to help my friends I think it may seem like I'm minimizing what they feel.

Dunkin’ has the best coffee. I buy their lids for my Keurig.

Retirement is not all it's supposed to be unless you've planned for it and have a way to spend your time. You'll need to volunteer or work part-time, I suspect, to fill fulfilled, after a point. Or at least that's how it's been for me in my forced retirement.

I choose Powerball winner for mine, but retirement would be nice, too.

Dunkin's blueberry black... yum. Also toxic positivity... I just don't trust someone that positive. There's always a hidden darkness!

Retirement...I want to change my answer! Enjoy those Christmas concerts. I haven't been to one in several years and I miss them.
