Neon Lights (2013)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) Think of a neon sign you pass by often. What does it say?
The only neon that I'm aware of in my vicinity is the tiny bowling alley I pass to get to work (which usually reads BOW IN or something similar). Not a lot of neon in the exurbs. Oh, I guess there's a neon sign in for the blues club in town...but I don't really go by there much. Unless I go to the bakery next door. Which doesn't have neon. :-)
2) In the video for this song, Demi Lovato spends a great deal of time in the waer. When is the last time you swam?
I don't swim. And I haven't been in a body of water for a very VERY long time. I did see the ocean at the end of the year last year though. That was awesome.
3) The song encourages us to "look up at the sky." OK, we will. How does the sky look where you are today?
Pale blue, a few high pale clouds. Lovely.
4) Demi is a contributing editor for Seventeen magazine. When she was in junior high school, Crazy Sam eagerly awaited each new issue of Seventeen. When you were younger, what magazine(s) did you read regularly?
I'm trying to remember if I ever read Seventeen in my life.... I got Young Miss when I was really young. I don't remember if I got magazines at all as a teen; I was way more into books at that point, I think. Maybe Tiger Beat/Teen Beat/etc. but I didn't subscribe. I subscribed to Ms. in college and have gotten it pretty much ever since. And I read Time cover to cover every week in college and for at least a decade after that. Now I live for Entertainment Weekly which replaced Yahoo! as my favorite when the latter stopped publishing a dozen years ago.
5) Demi is an investor in the company that makes Texas Tea, a bottled beverage available at Whole Foods. Do you have any tea in your kitchen right now?
I have tea bags, tons of them. Lots of family and some friends drink tea, so it's a staple.
6) Demi is currently on tour, performing halfway around the world in Australia and New Zealand. Have you ever had a job that required travel?
Unless you consider delivering newspapers "travel" I have not. Beast, though....yeah. He was in Toronto/Michigan this last week and Arizona the week before that. There's probably a trip to Iowa coming up--supposed to be this coming week but it's been moved back. At the end of March he was in the Dakotas and Minnesota. His two-year-old car has over 60,000 miles on it and he's got like a zillion United Airlines miles accrued, not to mention all the free hotel nights with Holiday Inn companies. We travel free on vacation a lot.
7) Demi had a recurring role on the show Glee. That show's series finale aired last month. Is there a show that's no longer on that you miss?
I liked CSI:NY and it was just hitting its stride in the last couple of seasons. There are loads of others from the distant past. M*A*S*H comes to mind...
8) Fast-growing fast food chain Chipotle reports that their top sellers include a burrito bowl with steak or chicken, salad with chili-corn salsa, and a soft taco. Which of these would you order?
Give me the chicken burrito bowl please. I could probably make it last for at least two meals, too!
9) What beverage would you like to enjoy with your burrito bowl, taco or salad?
Diet Pepsi/Coke.
I'm confused about the last two questions--what is the connection between Demi/this song and Chipotle? Did I miss something?

I miss swimming, when I think to miss it. I haven't done it for a long time. When I was younger I was a fairly decent swimmer. Now I suppose I'd just float.

Free travel is fun. ;-)

I love getting to see the ocean since I live in the middle of the country.

Many people never learn to swim. Remember, you can dog paddle forever if you can't actually swim. This is in case you ever need to swim out of something. Our kids started lessons around 3 years old.

The Ocean is so cold here that it shocks tourists. We swim in it anyway, nearly all year. I hear the Siren call....think it's time to get back into the water.
