Mmmmmm beeeeer

Straight Up

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!

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
Saturday 9: Straight Up (1988)

1) In this song, Paula sings about being in a dream. Did you dream last night?I'm sure I did.  I dream every night.  Don't you?
2) When Paula enrolled at California State University, she planned on studying broadcasting and becoming a reporter.  Think about your career aspirations when you were 19. Did you follow through and stay on track or, like Paula, did you veer off and find success elsewhere?
I wanted to be a teacher, I think.  And ahhh, yeah.  Not a teacher.  LOL

3) For a while she was a "Laker Girl" and performed at L.A. Laker games. Do you have a favorite NBA team?
Basketball is my least favorite sport - but when I root for a team, I root for the Celtics.
4) Paula was once married to Brad Beckerman of Stillhouse Spirits, a company that specializes in whiskey. What's your favorite alcoholic beverage?mmmmmmm beeeeeeeeer...  Pumpkin beer.  Or ale.  Or stout.  Yum.
5) Paula has been dancing since age 8 and, as you can see from the video, Paula moves very well in heels. Tell us about your most comfy shoes.
The ones that don't make my feet hurt
6) Paula admits it was her passion for jewelry and that inspired her to design her own line for QVC and Avon. What is your favorite thing to go shopping for?
Stuff.  I love stuff.  All sorts of stuff.  House stuff.  Clothes stuff.   
7) She advises young girls to "keep the faith and don't lose your gut instinct." How about you? Are you more logical or instinctive?
Usually my instincts are spot on.  Walks like a duck, talks like a duck, it's usually a duck.  Or a car salesman.  LOL
8) In May, Paula traveled to Austria for The Life Ball, a fundraiser to help those afflicted with HIV/AIDS. When is the last time you left the country?
It's been a while.  I think I drove through Canada a few times going back to the East Coast.  But now my passport is expired.  I need to travel more.
9) Paula Abdul is a spokeswoman for Avon's "Go Check Yourself" campaign for breast health awareness. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Do you know anyone who has been touched by this disease?
Doesn't everyone?  Go check yours.  Right now.  I'm going to check mine right now. All good!  
Happy Saturday!
