You mean it's not about a Corvette?

Saturday 9: LIttle Red Corvette (recommended by Smellyann
No link this week. Prince apparently is very strict about copyright infringement.
Not for nothing, but Prince is really a short little freaky deaky ding dong man...
1) The subject of this song is frankly sexual. Do you blush easily?
What?  I thought it was about a car?  Oh Jesus....

2) Prince is his real name (Prince Rogers, to be exact). Growing up, his relatives called him "Skipper." Do you have any nicknames within your family?
Some... For years my siblings called me "bubble butt".. (and you wonder why I don't speak to them any more??)  My mother called my brothers Booboos I and Booboos II.  Not sure about the other one.  I just call her "bitch"...
3) Prince says he's "obsessed" with Mozart and reads whatever he can find about the composer. What's the last book you read?
Some stupid one on my iPad.  I forget the name of it.  Now I'm reading The Circle.  Weird. 
4) Between Prince and The Beach Boys, the Corvette is a much sung-about car. Tell us about your vehicle. 
Seriously?  Take a look at the finest that Jeep has to offer... my Lucy 2.0.  She's a pretty girl, and loves to drive with her top off.  She was born in 2007, and I bought her a month or so ago - and she's still got less than 5,000 miles on her.  I'm taking care of that soon.. LOL

5) In the 1980s, when Prince was popular, MTV could turn a song into a hit. In 2014, how do you hear new music?
Through my ears???  What kind of a silly question is that.... pshaw! 

6) In 1982, when "Little Red Corvette" ruled the airwaves, Braniff Airways shocked the travel industry and threw passengers into chaos by declaring bankruptcy. When did you last fly? Did your trip go smoothly?

I flew back to Boston for my HS reunion in November.  Smooth like buttah!

7) 1982 is also the year Disney opened Epcot. Have you ever been to a Disney park?

HAH!  I went to Disney WORLD when they still used tickets to get in.  I was in 2nd grade, just a young pup. I can't remember how many times I've been, but I've taken Josh there twice, and we've been to Disney Land once.  I'm due.  LOL

8) 1982 is the year Cheers premiered. The sitcom was set in a bar where "everybody knows your name." Tell us about your favorite local bar or restaurant.

Well, first off - if you ever get to Boston, don't go to the Cheers bar.  It's not the right one.  That one is just a tourist trap.  I have a few local watering holes that I like.  Depends on the mood.  :)

9) The 1980s were considered a highpoint in professional tennis, with Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe dominating the sport. Do you play tennis?

No.  I think tennis is boring.  I'd rather do naked mud wrestling or something like that.  Oh.  Wait.  Whoops?  

Still crazy busy, but it's a good crazy busy.  Hope everyone is well!

Naked mud wrestling? Now there's a sport!

I've flown in and out of Logan twice and was impressed by how easy it was to navigate. (Like buttah!)

I once had a nightmare flight delay at Logan airport. I never want to go back there again...

That sure was a loving description of your vehicle - she is a stunner though!

Nicknames had me a giggling!

That is one cool car. I always wanted a jeep.

I recently bought a 2007 Ford Escape with less than 50,000 miles on it and I thought that was good. Wow, only 5,000 miles. Good find.
