Saturday Nine and Saturday Matinee bit's of knitting blah blah.

Dancing with Myself

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!

Saturday 9: Dancing with Myself (1980)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This song is one of Billy Idol's biggest hits. Can you name another?  "Rebel Yell" and "White Wedding"  They all sound amazingly the same to me now.  I've had enough of Billy Idol's "music".

2) When is the last time you danced around your home?  Just a couple of days ago.  I used to dance around with tiny 6 pound Jazzie all the time but, at 17 pounds, Wolfie is just too heavy.

3) In this song, Billy says he dances with his own reflection. Is there a mirror in the room you're in right now? Not in this room.

4) "Dancing with Myself" is also the name of Billy Idol's 2014 autobiography. Let's say you're going to write your life story. What do you title it?  Following the Rough Road to Enlightenment

5) This month, Billy resumes his 2014-15 concert tour in New Orleans. Have you ever been to Louisiana?  No, never, though I've wanted to see the swamps, and have a chance to search for a
the probably extinct Ivory billed woodpecker.

6) In 1980, when "Dancing with Myself" was first popular, VHS players were all the rage. Do you still have yours?  Yes.  We have a lot of tapes still.

7) In 1980, The Love Boat was getting good ratings. Have you ever taken a cruise?  No.  I've water skied on Lake Mead though.  More fun!

8) Sally Field won her first Oscar in 1980 for the movie Norma Rae. Five years later she won a second Oscar for Places in the Heart and delivered one of the most quoted acceptance speeches in Academy history. Do you remember what she said?  I remember that she was awe struck and said, "You like me!  You really like me!".  She's just an adorable little gal.  Of course we liked her.

9) In 1980, People magazine named Stephen King one of the most intriguing people of the year because he had two big paperback bestsellers -- The Dead Zone and The Shining. Do you have a favorite Stephen King book?  I liked his short story, "Lawn mower man".. Everything else was just too strange for me.  Middle Earth Meets Psycho.

Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us on next Saturday for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend!

Saturday Matinee

Anyone looking for an alternative to run of the mill Christmas movies might want to check out this one.  It's an adaptation of a stage play, and called, "We're No Angels"

Little kids won't get it, and it's not from Disney, but it's set up like a stage play and it hilarious. Guess what's in the little box in the middle.

We watched tonight after trotting off to the vet with Wolfie to have his peeper checked.

Wolfie report: All is well. He has a severely dry eye and we have to watch it.. and hold him down for a drop in it twice a day.  We have been feeding him a little too much so he has a bound to drop.  More maniac runs on the beach would surely help but San Diego's beaches are off limits to dogs a lot of the time.  It's fine to take them at the crack of dawn though!  I love Santa Cruz for yet another reason!

I've almost knit the hat.  I might run out of yarn but it would be very fitting for a hat that - apparently- didn't really want to be knit in the first place, as it's fought me every inch of the way!  I'm off tomorrow on a quest to find left over Christmas cards-we waited rather late on this- and a pair of the fattest double points I'll have ever seen,  - 13mm's.  Pictures tomorrow.  They're on the camera but I forgot to upload them!  It has been a busy day with some snags of chrismas junk from Tuesday Morning.  DH said no to the tin lanterns, DAM!

Ok. good night!  I'm nearly blind at this time of night on a tiny
screen,  typos are not uncommon on these two memes, eh?
Love you all!  It's the meds by ow but the sentiment is always there....hehehe


  1. Don't worry about the med-driven typos. We think you're doing just fine!

    Sally Field certainly is a likeable actress, isn't she? I'm always happy to see her turn up in a film or show.

    1. Thanks for the passing grade in "senior on meds" typ(o)ing. ;-) And yes, isn't Sally Fields a darling? I've now watched just about anything she's been in.

  2. I don't have any VHS tapes left. I've transitioned to DVD, mostly.

    1. Hey, Kwizgiver, I need to do this. I can't seem to find something like "Moon Over Parador" on DVD though. It's one of my favorites, as is "Milagro Beanfield War". DH says he will look again. Our VHS tapes are creakingly old.

  3. I have never water skied before, something I have always wanted to try, but never got around to it. Have a great weekend!

    1. Jodi, you will love waterskiing! It's not hard on two ski. Hard comes when you drop one of them. ehehe Thanks, and hope you have a great weekend, too!

  4. I like your header, I really like it!

  5. It's pretty bright and cheery! And thank you... :o) It's a sunrise from our backyard. And of course, the fireworks, from Blogger, fit right in!
