Saturday 9- The Champion

Saturday 9: The Champion (2018)

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

1) This song is about doing what it takes to win. What's the most recent competition you won? (Yes, online solitaire counts.)  I do not remember.  I won $1000 on the radio one time though for recognizing a song and being a certain number caller.

2) The lyrics tell us to "go ahead and put your bets on me." Do you often play games of chance -- like the office football pool, or slot machines, or the lottery?  nope

3) The video includes footage of young people competing in The Special Olympics. What's your favorite sport to watch? Is it the same sport you most enjoying playing?  I do not really play sports, but I love to watch baseball and football.

4) This week's featured artist, Carrie Underwood, first came to America's attention when she won on American Idol. Prior to competing on that show, she'd never been on an airplane. How old were you when you took your first flight?  I have never been on an airplane.  I am not afraid to, we do not travel much and when we do we usually drive.

5) Carrie loves horror and her favorite author is Stephen King. What book are you currently reading?  I am not reading anything right now.

6) Carrie's duet partner on "The Champion" is rapper Ludacris. In addition to making music, he acts and has appeared in one Sam's favorite shows, Law & Order: SVU. What's your favorite "cop show?"  24..hee, hee.  I do not really watch a cop show right now. I used to watch The Rookie, but we do not watch anymore..  How about Magnum P.I.?  Does he count?  I watch that.

7) Ludacris is a distant cousin of comedian Richard Pryor. Have you studied your family's genealogy?  some

8) Soccer was a big deal in 2018, the year this song was released. According to Google, "FIFA World Cup" was the news story that generated the most internet searches. What's the last thing you "googled?"  I have been hunting for mittens, I have been googling a lot of stores lately looking for mittens.  We are doing a mitten exchange at work.

9) Random question: You're battling the flu. The doctor advises you to stay in bed a full five days. As you begin feeling better (around Day 3), do you continue to follow doctor's orders? Or do you get up and start moving before you're supposed to?  I am probably up for a while, but I still probably try to go back to bed.  I try to do what I am told.

Tuesday 4 Meme- Shopping Days
Shopping Days

1.   What do you think of discounts and sales?:  I love them, but I really watch products because sometimes they are not really marked down much if at all.  It also amazes me how much products are marked up.

2.   What's the biggest bargain you've found?:  Nothing is really coming to mind, but probably something that was on clearance.

3.   What do you think of shopping days like Black Friday?:  Some of those deals are good, you have to watch them.  I went out in person once and I will never go again. The people act crazy!

4.   What are the good and bad things about shopping malls and shopping online?:  I shop mostly online because it is less stress for me and quicker.  You of course take the chance of someone taking your purchases that come in the mail.  I haven't yet, but I know it is a big problem.  I like the actual stores for clothes and shoes.  I like to try things on.  I can get my make-up (Ulta) and bath and body online.
