Five O'Clock World (1966)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1. Think back to Friday. Did it fly by? Or did you find yourself checking the clock and wishing it was 5:00?
It was a busy day. My days are usually packed, and I rarely have time to watch the clock. This is entirely intentionally; I can't think of anything worse than sitting doing nothing.2. This song refers to the 5:00 whistle that signifies the end of the work day. What's the last whistle, alarm or buzzer you heard?
I was at a high school on Wednesday for a couple hours and heard class-ending bells (really, 'tones' that are not at all bell-like) a few times.3. In the 1960s, the Vogues often appeared on TV variety shows to promote their record albums. Do you have the TV on now, as you answer these questions?
Nope. I know, shocking! It's quite silent: I can hear the clock ticking, and Beast getting ready to head to church to do sound/lights for a funeral. And the washing machine cycling.4. "Vogue" means "popular or fashionable." Tell us about something that you feel is in vogue today.
Meanness.5. Vogue magazine reported that the big Fall/Winter trend was brocade. Describe the latest addition to your Fall/Winter wardrobe.
Brocade???? Holy cats, really?? smh6. Vogue editor Anna Wintour is such a difficult boss that disgruntled employees nicknamed her "Nuclear Wintour." What qualities do you think make a good boss?
I bought a peasant-style blouse off Amazon during their post-Christmas sales. It's quite comfy, and I got it for less than half its tagged price.
Right now, I'd love to have a boss with people awareness, one that lets his staff get on with things and only gets involved in interpersonal stuff after the employees have tried to work things out among themselves. In general terms, though, honesty, humor, and creativity are imperative.7. Ms. Wintour was rumored to be the inspiration for the character of Amanda in the book and movie, The Devil Wears Prada. Did you receive any books or movies for Christmas 2015? Did you receive any gift cards that you then used for books or movies?
I did get a couple of books--because Beast knows that I'd better get books or there'll be a problem. I don't think I got any DVDs and no gift cards.8. "Vogue" was also a dance, made famous by Madonna in her 1990 hit by the same name. Can you name another Madonna song?
"Like a Virgin" was the first thing that popped into my head...followed by Weird Al's rendition.9. Random question from a Sat9-er: How organized are your clean clothes? (Stacked in piles, folded neatly in drawers, still in the dryer....?)
Today's laundry day, so most everything clean is put away. Socks are at least ON the boxes in which they're meant to be living, and there's one pair of jeans that I've only worn briefly that's hanging on the clothes rack.
