Saturday 9

(Link in meme-roll)
Super Duper Love
If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here. [oh how I adore Joss Stone]

1) The lyrics say, "I'm as proud as a girl can be." Tell us about something you're proud of.
I'm proud of dealing with depression and health issues, both in the past and currently. I may not be doing it all "right," but I'm doing my best.
2) This song is from her first CD, The Soul Sessions. She's told interviewers that the first CD she ever owned was by Aretha Franklin: Greatest Hits. So while we're talking firsts, do you remember your first CD (or tape or record)?
The very first record I ever bought was the 45 for "Seasons in the Sun" and the first full record was a compilation of rock songs, only one of which I ever heard anywhere else. Buzarre.
3) Last year, two men were convicted of plotting to kill Joss Stone. Even though she had (fortunately!) never even met the men, she still had to testify during their trial. Have you ever had to speak to a judge?
Yes, when I was very young, too. hah My mom worked in the county court, so I met the Judges (Rolis (sp?) and Gately) when I was under 10. Terrifying. Otherwise, the only time I've been in a courtroom was for jury duty (I was excused). I may have talked to a judge who wasn't at work. Anything is possible, no?
But who the hell plots to kill a singer??
4) Joss is frequently in the British press because of her friendship with Princes William and Harry. Who among your friends leads the most exciting life?
I don't really have too many exciting friends. I'm not exactly interested in drama. However, I do have a small group of friends in their early 20s and THAT is fun to watch. Also, my nieces and nephews who have small children are living eventful lives. Exciting? I don't know; more than me, for sure.
5) Because of dyslexia, Joss had trouble in school and dropped out when she was 16. What's the last grade you completed?
I have a Master's degree in Information and Library Science. yeehaw
6) She provided the voice of the villainness for the James Bond video game, Blood Stone. Do you have a Playstation or Xbox?
Sparky has an Xbox. We have the Wii here at home.
7) Sam is especially crazy this morning because she can't find her phone. What's the last thing you misplaced?
My peace of mind was pretty well shot Thursday night all night. I think I lost the jar of pickle relish I bought a couple of weeks ago; just replaced it tonight.
8) After composing this Saturday 9, Sam is off to Lowe's to pick up some heavy duty indoor/outdoor trash bags. Will you be in any stores this weekend?
Just got home from Meijer's for groceries. I think I'm done for the weekend.
9) Do you consider yourself more book smart, or street smart?
Definitely way more book smart, but I've got some street too.

I think it's very cool that you have a degree in Library Science. I wonder how electronic media is changing how it's taught.

I have been swatting flies, because the dogs can't decide to go in or out last nite. I couldn't find a pink fly swatter that I had just put down. It drove me crazy and I still haven't found it.

Gal: I was in school on the cusp of the takeover of computers; it's a big, different world. Thank goodness I'm not afraid of technology and like new things.

BC: Maybe the dogs stole it. :-)

Sometimes book smarts can save the day on the Street!
