F the F'ers and the F'ing Christmas Decorations up in F'ing August

Saturday 9: Seattle

Unfamiliar with this week's song? Hear it here.

1) Let's get the obvious out of the way: Have you ever been to Seattle?
Yep :)

2) Businessweek named Seattle one of the best places to live, citing its clean air, low crime and high employment. What makes your current hometown a great place to live?
It's a small town, where everybody knows your name.  I live in a development that used to be a corn field.  There are corn fields all around us, and I get to watch beautiful sunsets every night.  I don't have any rush hour traffic, my commute is 20 min, and that's with red lights.  Is that enough?

3) In this song, Bobby brags about how green Seattle is. Is it still green where you are? Or are the trees beginning to show their fall colors?
It's still green - I'm looking at my grass right now!

4) This song was the theme of a 1968-1970 show called Here Come the Brides. Do you know the words to any other TV theme?
Here's a story, of a lovely lady... who was bringing up three very lovely girls.... (see if you can get that out of your head now LOL)

5) Bobby Sherman was once America's #1 teen idol, selling millions of records and earning 5 Gold Albums. Girls who wrote to his fan club received a postcard back signed, "Peace, Love & Bobby Sherman." Have you ever belonged to a fan club?
Maybe.  Don't you judge me.  And I was NOT stalking.  Just looking in the windows. 

6) Alas, the career of a teen idol can be short, and by fall 1970, Bobby was replaced on magazine covers by David Cassidy. Sherman went on to a second career with the LAPD, instructing officers in CPR and first aid. Do you know how to perform CPR? The Heimlich Maneuver? 
 Yes indeed!  Although my certification expired a zillion years ago.  I'm sure I could do it if needed..

7) The "disc" you see shown is actually made of cardboard and was printed on the back of a Post Alpha-Bits cereal box. It was one of four that Post printed on different cereals back in 1970 so that Bobby-loving little girls would have to go through lots of different cereals to collect the whole set. What's your favorite breakfast cereal?
A mix of Honey Nut Cheerios and Wheaties.  Yum.  Or, if there aren't any wheaties around, the HN Cheerios with a banana sliced up.  Oh double yum.

8) Crazy Sam can't decide if she wants berries or banana slices with her cereal. Which would be your choice?

9) Do you ever eat cereal straight out of the box? Drink milk directly from the carton?
Meh.. sometimes
 And now... Sunday's...

Fall/Autumn Meme 

 First of all, is autumn your favorite season? Why or why not? One of them.  I really like days in the 70's and cool nights.  Best sleeping.  Great amount of sun.  The days are just perfect.

Is it ‘autumn’ or ‘fall’, to you?
Um, duh.  It's fall.  

What kind of weather does your area get during this season? 
Sunny days in the 70's, and then into the 40's at night.

Were you born in an autumn month? 
Why yes, yes I was!

Do you pay attention to any ‘fall fashions’?
I know not to wear white after Labor Day.  Unless it's winter white.  Try explaining that one to someone that doesn't get it.  

Which leaf color is your favorite? 
Seriously?  Um, red.  Yeah..

Is it still fun to rake the leaves and jump in piles of them?

When can you really tell that it’s autumn? 
Ahhhhhhh, when it's not longer summer?  

Do you enjoy carving pumpkins? 
Not really.  It's messy.  I'd just as soon color a face on them. 

Do you eat the pumpkin seeds? If so, do you put any kind of flavoring on it?

Are you planning to go to a pumpkin patch this year?
I did!  I did!

Which was your favorite Halloween costume to wear?
I won first prize - best costume ever!  I was an outhouse.  :)

Are you planning to go trick-or-treating? Why or why not?
Ahhh, because I'm not a kid?

Are there any county fairs or festivals held nearby during this time?

What is your favorite dessert for this time of year? 
Pumpkin anything

Is your Thanksgiving Day in October or November, if you even celebrate it?
last Thursday in November!

If you do celebrate it, where do you usually have Thanksgiving dinner?
ahhhhhhhhh, it varies?

Do you remember any crafts you used to do that were autumn-themed? 
Yeah, I remember tracing my hand and making a turkey out of it. 

Are any of your favorite bands doing a fall tour this year? 
No clue.

Which new TV show are you looking forward to this season? Hostages looks interesting.  But The Walking Dead is new to me, so I'm really really looking forward to that..

How does autumn typically make you feel?
What is this, sit around and talk about our feelings day? 

What color do you always associate with autumn? 
FALL COLORS.   I'm getting annoyed with all these color, touchy-feely type questions..

Is there a song that always reminds you of this season? No.  Should there be?

Do you have any seasonal traditions?
We do Halloween in my driveway.  Ours is a fairly new neighborhood, so there are tons of kids that come here for trick or treating.  We set up the fire pit in the driveway, and a bunch of neighbors turn out their lights and come over.  It's like one stop shopping.  The kids get candy from all the adults, and there is hot apple cider with the option to add some tasty adult beverages to it. 

Do you spend a lot of time outside during this time of the year? 
As much as I can.

How can you tell that fall is over?  
Oh. Um.  When the snow starts to fall?

What is a typical autumn outfit that you wear?
What are you, stalking me?

Describe a perfect autumn day:  
Cool.  Sunny.  No work. 

Do you hate it when stores start promoting Christmas early? 
Fuck the fuckers and their fucking decorations LOL

What is your favorite thing about this season?  
It's not Christmas season...
