exactly how busy IS a one-armed paper hanger?

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.

1) Eddie Fisher starred in a popular 1950s TV show, which was sponsored by Coca Cola. Do you have a favorite soft drink?
Diet Coke, but I'm not a huge soda drinking.  I would rather just drink water..

2) He was notorious for leaving his famous first wife for his very famous second wife. Can you name either of the women involved in this Hollywood scandal?
Oh come on now, we all know her by those eyes (well, yeah - and other things LOL) ....Elizabeth Taylor!

3) His oldest daughter, Carrie Fisher, is best known as Princess Leia from Star Wars. Are you a sci-fi fan?

4) Since Sam's father is particular about his footwear and likes "a good pair of Cole Haan loafers," her Father's Day present to him is a DSW gift card. If we were to give you a gift card to any store or restaurant, which would you choose?
Oh, I'd take Home Depot or Lowes any time.  LOL

5) Sam's father hates it when she swears. When is the last time your cursed?
I don't fucking know...

6) Sam's father is a voracious reader. So much so that the local librarian knows him on sight and by name. How often do you visit your neighborhood library?
Not often enough, but now I'm into reading books on my iPad, so probably even less than I would before.  I love the technology, but hate that it's phasing out so many things that are near and dear.  But that reminds me of a story... I went to library school instead of nursery school (or maybe in addition, I'm not sure - I just know my mother wanted me OUT of the house LOL) and I got in trouble every time I was there for taking off my shoes.  Look, I still hate wearing them.  Dammit. 
 7) "A good used car is a better investment than a new car." That's what Sam's dad tells her when she's in the market for wheels. Share some other words of financial wisdom with us. 
If you can't pay cash, then think about whether or not you really REALLY need it..
8) Every car her father has ever owned had a pro-union bumper sticker. Do you have any bumper stickers on your vehicle?  
Not yet on Lucy 2.0 - but on Lucy 1.0, I put all the good ones that I'd been saving.  LOL
9) To celebrate Father's Day, Sam is giving away her father's favorite candy: LifeSavers. Would you prefer a roll of Wild Cherry, Butter Rum, Winter Green or Peppermint? 
Meh... not a big candy fan either.  Can I maybe have a piece of chocolate?
I've been busier than a one-armed paper hanger lately!  I did Relay for Life one weekend, then worked at a music festival another - I feel like today is the first time I actually have to sit down!
I've got two baseball players staying at my house, which makes my inner Aunt Harriet happy (she was ALL about baseball).  Lots of games - awesome!  They're college age, so it's fun to watch, and they're great guys to have around.  This weekend is the last of the graduation parties, and then I will have more time to breathe.. But I have to admit - it's kind of nice being so busy for a change!
Happy Weekend!

I still browse book stores....but mainly to check out books for my Kindle. I use to take the girls to Library reading programs when I was home with them.

Welcome back, and I'm glad you sound happy-busy, as opposed to harassed-busy. The most comforting thing for me about today's Sat 9 is that I'm not the only one on earth who doesn't care about Star Wars.

I think busy makes for happy, so that is good.

I am Harriet said...

I agree with you on the car thing.

Wow, you have been busy! I still love going to the book store and just browse for as long as I can. I'm starting to read more on my Kindle but have a lot of books laying around I still need to read.

The paper-hanger thing makes me laugh. Someone - I can't think who, but maybe my hubs? - says that from time to time. Who?

Sounds good and busy over there. Enjoy it! Squeeze a baseball player's butt for me. :P (JK!)
