What Hurts the Most (2006)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) What hurts Sam the most is her sole, since she just found that earring she thought was lost by stepping on it with her bare foot. How about you? Any aches and pains to report?
I have a couple of weird bruises on my feet, noticed this morning. I know where they came from--one's from a badly-placed toe-ring, the other is from 'falling off' my (flat) sandals yesterday--but they are in truly weird places. Also, I've got a headache. Probably allergies, but I seem to have developed a minor cold so it could be that as well. Otherwise, and compared to Beast, my health is rosy.
2) What's the last thing you misplaced? Did you find it?
I'm pretty sure my brain fell out somewhere yesterday afternoon. The jury's still out on whether it's back or not. I can't think of anything major I've misplaced recently, though. Oh, we still have no idea where my file for my birth certificates is. Or if we even have any. I need to contact Vital Stats in Colorado and order some more.
3) Lead singer Gary LeVox sings that he's not afraid to cry. When is the last time you shed a tear?
I've been yawning so hard the last week--probably allergy-related--that my eyes water in defense, so there's that. Otherwise...I'm not sure. I didn't cry at meeting last night, which is rare. I'm sure there were tears at some point earlier in the week; it's rare for me to go a week without crying about something.
4) Gary auditioned for another country group, Little Big Town, but didn't get in. Considering how successful Rascal Flatts has been, he's probably not sorry. Tell us about something you thought you wanted, but later weren't so sure.
I can't think of anything major. There's always a small sense of 'buyer's remorse' at some point after achieving or getting something. I mean, how many parents haven't wondered why in the hell they reproduced at certain moments of their child's life? Or why we wanted a pet after having to clean up the 53rd mess today? Or that outfit that fell apart the first time you wore it?
5) The country group has their roots in Columbus, Ohio. What else is Ohio known for?
The Rock n Roll Hall of Fame! (and the hospital where Baby Beastie made his appearance)
6) Lead guitarist Joe Don Rooney married model and former Miss Georgia, Tiffany Fallon. Many major pageants give prizes in the talent, congeniality and swimsuit competitions. Would you prefer to have exceptional skills, a great personality, or a terrific body?
All in all, I'd rather have a nap.
7) 2006, the year this song was popular, was a very good one for tennis pro Roger Federer. He reached the finals in all four Grand Slam tournaments, and won three. What's the last game you won? (Yes, Words with Friends counts.)
I won a trivia challenge last night (similar to WWF). Otherwise, I don't tend to play win-lose games anymore because I'm a really bad loser.
8) Actor Tony Shalhoub won an Emmy in 2006 for his portrayal of detective Adrian Monk on Monk. Who's your favorite TV detective?
Gil Grissom holds a very special place in my heart, though he's not technically a detective. So the backup is Olivia Benson, who is my hero.
9) Random question ... You've just won an all-expenses-paid trip but now you have to choose: Carnivale in Brazil, the Bordeaux Wine Festival in France, or the Running of the Bulls in Spain?
I'm not going to a wine festival unless I go there without Beast. The other two I would only be involved in if I had a great hotel room overlooking the festivities; I have no interest in participating in either.

One of my agency's clients is a big bank. They commissioned research for an upcoming campaign and we discovered that Benson is one of the best loved characters on TV. By men and women. It's just that SVU has such challenging content that the bank was queasy about using her.

That's very interesting, and not very forward-thinking of the bank. Maybe that's why I'm not in banking? :-)

I just woke up from a wonderful nap. :-)
