Stay with Me

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: Stay with Me (2014)

... because Kwizgiver recommended it

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

1) Sam Smith explains that this song is about just not wanting to wake up alone. How about you? Are you comfortable being by yourself?
Yes, but I'd rather not be, and glad I'm not.

2) Last year a lawsuit filed by Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne, who maintained that "Stay with Me" was really just "I Won't Back Down." Petty and Lynne won. Have you ever served on a jury?

3) Smith performed this on The David Letterman Show. Did you watch Dave's final episode last May?
4) Smith says his style was influenced by ladies with "massive voices," including Adele, Amy Winehouse, Chaka Kahn, and Whitney Houston. Of those four, which do you listen to most often?
Chaka and Witney.  

5) Speaking of style, Mr. Smith is a smart dressed man who looks comfortable and dapper as he walks the red carpet in a tux. Do you enjoy getting dressed up for special occasions?
I used to.  Now I'm glad that I don't have to very often.

6) "Occasions" is a word that makes Crazy Sam stumble because she can never remember how to spell it correctly. Are you a good speller?
I'm pretty good.  But, I'm slipping up more and more.

7) Sam Smith was born on May 19, which makes him a Taurus. When did you last check your horoscope?
Not for at least a year now.  It used to be interesting and now.... meh...

8) Tauruses are supposed to be reliable, organized and ambitious. Do any of those three adjectives describe you?
I'm not a Taurus but they pretty well describe my sibling, who is a Taurus.

9) Random question: Look at the floor. Do you see carpet, rug, hard wood or tile?
I see my little dog, who, being a Shitzu mix can lay out like a small carpet with a tail.  And, since vinyl flooring wasn't mentioned, I can say, truthfully, "none of the above."

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!


  1. Your horoscope answer could have been mine. I don't know why I quit caring, but I did.

    1. Gee. I used to love to read it, but after that whole downslope of massive infection and emergency surgery last year, I thought," The STARS didn't see that coming?" meh

  2. I love your description of your dog on the floor!

    1. LOl.. and thanks. That's just what he looks like, a little,black rug with a tail.

  3. The stars don't see everything. They're more like something to think about and move toward, not fortune telling. Sort of like reading the Tarot. It's just a point in time and space that may or may not be a direction for you. And I think you misspelled Whitney. :-) And I misspelled Benatar.

  4. They had a Shitzu-mix humane society stray dog on TV the other day. I wanted that baby ;( ...5 dogs following me around all day long would not be a fun thing.

  5. Another one with a furry critter on the floor!

  6. I'm so far out of it that the only singer that I recognized was Whitney Houston.


I love comments. Sorry about the mods. If you visit and leave me a comment, I will be sure to give you a visit and let you know I appreciated it.

Wishing you " ♥A Sufficiency of all good things♥."
