Saturday 9 (I can't seem to not do these, lately)

Beer Barrel Polka

1) Have you ever danced the polka?
Yes, precisely once, with our best man at someone else's wedding (damn...whose? Maybe Bill & Dianne?). It was great fun, though I nearly passed out before it was over due to lack of breath and laughing so hard. And I was covered in sweat. This is not a good look at a wedding, but who cares?
2) Frankie Yankovic was a stellar accordion player. What instrument have you mastered, or would like to learn?
I used to be damn good on flute. I took piano lessons for 3 or so years as a child, but I don't think I ever mastered it. And I'm a pretty good handbell ringer.
3) When Frankie died in 1998, his obituary proclaimed him as "America's Polka King." Lucille Ball was "The Queen of Comedy" and Michael Jackson was "The King of Pop." What royal title do you deserve?
The phrase "Queen Bitch" has been bandied about in reference to me....
4) Do you like light beer?
No. Neither in theory nor in taste. Then again, I don't like "heavy" beer, either, though I'm not morally opposed to it.
5) In 1901, daredevil Annie Taylor successfully went over Niagara Falls in a barrel. She was badly bruised but otherwise fine. How much money would it take for you do to do something that dangerous?
You are assuming that money is my primary motivation. It's not, and I wouldn't do this for any amount of money.
6) When was the last time you visited a pet store?
Freaky question--I need to get there SOON, but I haven't been in one since I picked up Pinto, over a year ago, I think. Maybe once since??
7) What's your favorite salad dressing?
Blue cheese.
8) Sam Winters is crazy about her smart phone. She uses it to take pictures, record videos, listen to tunes, answer emails and surf the net and, oh yeah, she even uses it to make calls. How indispensable is your mobile phone in your day-to-day life?
I don't use it for communication as much as some (most?), but it does function well as a security blanket and something to do when bored.
9) "Kocham ciÄ™" is "I love you" in Polish. Can you say "I love you" in a language other than English (and Polish)?
I'm pretty sure I can't pronounce that, so I think I can't count Polish quite However, I do know at least three: French, Spanish, and Latin. Oh, and German, so ... four. Maybe more, seems like I should.
