Saturday 9: The Last Time I Saw Him (1973)Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) In this song, Miss Ross sings of a tender farewell at the bus station. When did you last say goodbye to someone at an airport, dock, train or bus station?
It was in the 1980s sometime. Mr. Z was flying somewhere, on loan from his company for three weeks or maybe it was months.
2) Continuing with the theme of "lasts," who received the last gift you gave?
Darned if I know. I can't remember. Last Christmas?
3) Who last did you a favor?
Mr. Z is always doing me favors. He brings me cups of tea and things when I'm resting.
4) What's the last thing you dropped or broke?
I dropped my smart phone. It broke the case, but not the phone. So, being me, I got it a bullet proof one and haven't dropped it since. Go figure...
5) What's the last thing you borrowed or lent?
Oh, that reminds me. Borrowed. And, I still have my neighbor's cross stitch frame, and need to give it back. Thank you!
6) When is the last time you danced?
When I was taking ballet in the 70s with the girls. This brings to mind a little vignette of Sandra Bullock, trying the Barre in a movie. This is Not the gorgeous Sandra but it's even more hilarious!
Yep, pretty much me.
Just had to add this one too. Miss Piggy and Rudolph Nureyev.
7) When were you last nervous?
It began with a text in January, and then a follow up phone call with terrible news in February. I think I'm still twitching.
8) What was your last DIY project?
I sped read that as DUI, and thought, "What the Hay?!"
About DIY, I do that stuff all the time. Always have and always will. With Halloween on the way soon, I'm thinking that it would be fun to make a mummy with gauze, fake cobwebs, and hot glue gummy stuff...
9) When did you last check your horoscope? Was it accurate?
Say, speaking of horoscopes, do you know that the time periods of the signs are all wrong? That's according to our darling Indomitable Science, with a Capital "S" Scientists.
Since I'm in a cusp anyway, it didn't affect me that much because I've always read two signs, which, basically, always contradict each other. And so, No. It's seldom of any truly great import. I'm more likely to trust tarot cards or a Ouija board.
Both of those are lots more fun. My friend Diana and I had a go at a Ouija board once upon a time. The thing actually scared us. I'm going to get some tarot cards very soon. I need to be scared out of my wits. Also, Halloween is on the way. Why not try something new and strange and unpredictable!? Sort of just like Life, with a capital B. hint: B word rhymes with Witch. As in, Live is a B, and then you die. Yes, it's been one of those days, weeks, months. So, is this when I say, "Sue me!" ?
