9 to 5 (1980)
1) This song begins with the clacking of a typewriter. Did you ever learn to touch type — beginning with your fingers on “the home row” — or do you hunt and peck?
After countless hours in a ‘typing lab’…I do both…
2) Much of the video for this song revolves around the office coffee room. Are you enjoying a beverage as you answer these 9 questions?
Actually I’m out and it’s almost Wine O’clock.
3) This week’s artist, Dolly Parton, loves telling the story of how she once lost a Dolly Parton lookalike contest. What contest or sweepstakes have you entered lately?
None to be honest.
4) Dolly is one smart blonde. Early in her career she set up a company so she could retain the publishing rights for all her songs. Two alone — “9 to 5” and “I Will Always Love You” — made her a multi-millionaire because they have been recorded so many times. Do you have a good head for business?
That’s one of my many issues these days… I need to simplify…
5) Dolly is a crusader for childhood literacy and her organization, Dolly’s Imagination Library, has donated more than 10 million books all over the country. What’s the last book you read?
Don’t laugh. I saw this book at Sam’s Club that I had to have. It’s a book about birds in Illinois. I have a few bird feeders in my backyard that are very popular with my clientele.
6) This weekend may offer a golden opportunity for napping and sleeping in. Do you snore?
No. Of course not.
7) Labor Day was introduced to celebrate the achievements of the American worker. How many different employers have you had?
I can’t count that high or remember actually.
8) Will you be attending a Labor Day picnic or barbecue?
Nope. I’m helping my son move into his new apartment. Far away from here.
9) Labor Day traditionally marks the beginning of the new school year. When she was a kid, Samantha was crazy for her brand new box of 96 Crayola Crayons. It even had a sharpener in the back! What do you remember about preparing to go back to school? If you’re a parent with school-age kids, are they ready?
I remember all of the ‘popular’ girls (probably fat and divorced right now) wearing their fashionable sweaters in September even though it was 80 degrees out. My mom had a theory that they would wear their new trendy clothes once and then return them. She was probably right too!!!!!
I watch that Frankie and Grace on Netflix. Anyone else watch that? I like that show.
Have a great weekend!!
