Do I care? Maybe, maybe not. Saturday9

Don't you care?

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!

Come join us HERE

Saturday 9: Don't You Care? (1967)

If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.

1) What's something that seems to fascinate everyone else, but you just don't care about?
Celebrity.  I don't care much about Celebrity, though I'll admit to having a few favorites among them,  I think the tabloid obsession with celebrity has given too may young people the idea that living an ordinary life is just not worth it.  I really don't give a toss about it for that reason.  Every life has it's worth, it's unique beauty, and it's own sweet charm.  Well, unless it's steeped in Criminality, it does.

2) The lyrics refer to "the times we cried and laughed." Which did you do more recently, cry or laugh?
I've cried a river this week. I feel like my eyes are swollen.  I  just can't talk about it.

3) In the song, our hero seems surprised that his girlfriend doesn't believe him. Are you more believing and trusting, or suspicious and skeptical?
Sometimes I think I'm too trusting.  But that's OK.  I'd rather be hurt sometimes than to be suspicious and skeptical all the time.  I do think it is good to be cautious, however that's not what you asked about.

4) This song is just over two minutes long, which seems short for a song but awful long when Sam is waiting for her chicken soup to heat in the microwave. What's the last thing you heated in a microwave?
It was a cup of lemon/ginger tea.  That takes about 1 minute and 40 seconds. ;o)

5) This week's band, The Buckinghams, was one of the first acts to perform at Chicago's premiere summer festival, The Taste of Chicago.* Let's think ahead: Have you made any plans for Summer 2016?
There are no plans, not really.  

6) In 1967, when this song was popular, Rolling Stone magazine published its first issue. What magazines do you subscribe to? Do they arrive in the mail, or do you read them online?
I'm getting rid of magazines.  Want some?


7) Country star/American Idol judge Keith Urban was born in 1967. Are you watching the final season of American Idol?
Nope.  Actually, I never watched American Idol, and yes, I do know what I've missed- missed about 25 solid hours of commercials, I reckon.  

8) In 1967, the average cost of a movie ticket was $1.25. By 2015, it had risen $8.60. What's the last movie you saw in a theater?
Well, it was something before "Master and Commander", because that was up in a poster in the lobby as "coming soon". 

9) Random question: Sam's taking everyone out to dinner and she's buying. Would you prefer the steak or the lobster?
Are you really?  How kind!  But could I not just have a couple of desserts?  Maybe three?  

*Though back in 1970, it was called ChicagoFest.


  1. Oh, I'm sorry you've been crying. Hang in there!
    I'm with you about the celebrity hype. With social media and the constant news I'm so over hearing about them.

  2. Yup, I use a minute 45 seconds to heat my tea.

  3. You're the third tea-drinker so far this week (including moi).

  4. Sending hugs to you.

    Oooh, the desserts idea is fabulous!

  5. Oooh, I'll join you in desserts if that's an option!!

    Hope the upcoming week is less cry-y. ((o))

  6. I hate when I cry like that and my nose clogs up. It just drives me crazy.

  7. Here's a hug - I hope you feel better soon. Poor dear. (And I'd prefer just dessert, too, now that you mention it.)

  8. Everyone, thank you. And let's have desserts in a couple of weeks. It's a kid, and looks very bad. A mother's worst nightmare. But so many of you have been through hell along the road of life. Bless you all!
    See you in a few....
