Saturday 9: No One's Here to Sleep

Saturday 9: No One's Here to Sleep (2013)

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

1) This song is the theme of How to Get Away with Murder, the legal drama that premiered in 2014 and airs on Thursday nights. Are you a fan?  I have never watched it.

2) The song's refrain says, "I'll never catch up with you." Behind the wheel, do you carefully observe the speed limit? Or do you have a lead foot, making it hard for anyone to catch up with you?  I go just a little over the speed limit, but not much.

3) How to Get Away with Murder is about Annalise Keating, a law professor at a top Philadelphia university. She has a reputation for being tough, demanding and able to turn her students into successful defense attorneys. Tell us about a teacher who helped prepare you for life after graduation.  I am just going to say my dad.  He was a teacher and talked a lot to me about what it would be like after graduation about college etc.  I do not really recall a teacher from school preparing me for life after graduation besides just being good teachers.

4) The students she feels show the most promise -- and are recruited to help her solve murders -- are known as The Keating Four. Did you ever sense that you were your teacher's favorite?  no

5) Viola Davis was just nominated for an Emmy for playing Professor Keating. Ms. Davis was born on a farm in SC. Have you spent more of your life in a rural, suburban or urban setting?  most of my life in rural, but I have lived in all settings and I have enjoyed them all.

6) Next to Annalise Keating, Viola Davis is best known for her Oscar-nominated role as Aibileen in the movie, The Help. Have you seen it?   I have, it is fantastic.

7) In 2014, the year How to Get Away with Murder premiered, we lost two famous comedians: Robin Williams and Joan Rivers. Who was the last person to make you laugh out loud? (This means actually, literally laughing out loud, not just keystroking LOL.)  My co-worker Kris makes me laugh out loud every single day.  We have so much fun.  Here we are...I am on the left.  This was at curriculum training last year.

8) The 2014 Olympics were held in Sochi. Have you ever been to Russia? If not, is it a dream destination of yours?  I have a fascination with Russia since watching the tv show about Catherine the Great, I would love to visit....not sure how safe I would feel.

9) Random question:
The sign on the railing says, "Wet Paint." Do you touch the railing to see if it's really wet?  no



  1. That photo of you and your coworker is so cute! No wonder you enjoy being around her.

    1. Too cute!

      Do you mind if we borrow it for this year's Saturday 9 Christmas cards? We'll just photoshop out Kris. Or superimpose a reindeer or maybe an elf over her. We'll think of something.


    2. P.S. No. I don't think superimposing over Kris a picture of me sticking out my tongue is a good idea.

      Obviously I can dish it out but can't take it.

  2. Loved the photo.

    We really enjoyed Russia, but things have changed now and I don't think I'd like to go back.

  3. My father was also a teacher and then became a high school principal.

  4. How wonderful to have such a fun co-worker... treasure here... I spoent the last half of my career with the opposite.. not fun! Have a great school year!

  5. Goofy fun co-workers are the best--love the picture. Have a great weekend!

  6. My dad was a very popular and well-respected teacher. I'm pleased to have followed in his footsteps. :) And I totally agree with #8!

  7. I enjoyed your answers, Lori! We have a couple that are about the same! Have a good weekend!

  8. Cute photo! Now I know what you look like! It is nice to have a face with the name.

  9. Hehehe, nice photo!! Happy Saturday my friend.
