Saturday nine-late and Music Monday-early

 Firstly, I will do Saturday Nine.  I missed it for every odd reason you can imagine.  Company mostly. Lots and lots of hectic behavior.

And Monday Music is earlier than Monday, my apologies.  ahem...  We are having fun eating, yacking and trading craft books!  They are also hiking all over the half acre with their Dad and the doggie.

Saturday 9: Baby, It's Cold Outside

1) How cold is it where you are? 
 We stay above 50 most of the time but our 50 is not like Chicago's, which probably seems like summer to them, or at least late spring.

2) This familiar song was introduced in a 1949 film called Neptune's Daughter. (watch a clip here). Name another movie song.  
You really have to go back a ways to find a song that was specifically composed for a movie.  "White Christmas", though not written for a movie soundtrack, won an Academy Award for Best Original Song in the stage play, "Holiday Inn".  The later movie, which was a movie I just can't stand, featured Bing Crosby singing it again.  It doesn't shock me that he'd say that a jackdaw -with a cleft palate- could sing that song.

3) Who was the last person to call you "baby?"   
My DH.  I don't call anyone Baby. Well, the Lemur babies that are my computer wallpaper. I could stare at them all day!

4) This time of year is important to college football fans. Have you watched/will you watch any bowl games? 
We don't watch football until we are forced to at Thanksgiving, which, I want to say, is just a crime that was promulgated by the big money boys to spoil a perfectly good holiday with bloodshed.  Well, let's just say more bloodshed than is normal for a "family" holiday which I'm told can get pretty brutal at times!

5)  Are you sad to see the holiday decorations begin to slowly disappear? Or do you think they should all come down right away?
I would like to see them stay up until the 12 days are over.  Mine sometimes stay up through February, the dreariest month.  They cheer me up a lot.
6) Did you tell the truth about your weight on your driver's license, or did you shave off a pound or two?
I leave well enough alone. I've been the same weight on my driver's license since I renewed one year and weighed more than the initial weight on my beginners license at 15. You could get a license at 15 when I was young. So, I didn't change that weight after that though it goes up and down.

7) Crazy Sam swears that the Echinacea she takes every morning keeps her healthy. Her boyfriend tells her she's wasting her money. Do you take any herbal supplements? 
I don't find that Echinacea helps me at all, though I do take other supplements that do.  After all, many herbs have been stolen by big Pharma and used in medicines that end up being used for the same ailments.  Odd, isn't it?
8) The average restaurant in the US tip is 18%. Are you a generous tipper? 
 I am.  We always tip more than that, unless it's very bad service, indeed!  After all, everything isn't the server's fault.

9) This is the last Saturday 9 of 2013. Do you know the lyrics to "Auld Lang Syne?"
To be honest, the only reason I know how to spell that song is because it's in the crossword today.

Now for Music Monday:

This is very beautiful..there may be a little glitch right at the end but it could just be my Ancient Video Card, too.  Anyway, this is like nothing you've ever heard before.  This must be like the singing of the Heavenly Hosts!

Enjoy the Moment!  Live in it.
