Saturday 9- Bills, Bills, Bills

Bills, Bills, Bills


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

1) This song is about a cheating boyfriend. Unlike most songs, where the lover deceives by seeing another, this one squanders his girl's financial resources. She sings that he's ruined her credit. Do you know your credit score?  My husband likes to keep up with that.  I cannot remember the number, but it is good.

2) How often do you pay your bills? Do you handle them as they come in, or do you pay weekly, bi-weekly or monthly? Or are you lucky enough to have someone else handle your bills?  Mostly monthly or as they come in, but we also have bills we pay for the year.  Karl does the bills.

3) Destiny's Child had a hit with "Bills, Bills, Bills." This girl group got their start in Houston, TX. During the recent, bruising storm, lead singer Beyonce sent food, money and water to her home state. Have you spent much time in the Lone Star State?  I have been there a few times.  We visited San Antonio a few years ago to visit the Alamo and do other things and we went to Dallas shopping and to Fort Worth to Nascar races different times.

4) Beyonce is the breakout star of the group and went on to have a highly successful solo career. Can you think of another star who began his/her career as the member of a group?  Justin Timberlake

5) "Bills, Bills, Bills" was performed a cappella by the kids on Glee. That Fox show ran for six seasons. Were you a fan?  I hated it at first, then I loved it.  It was dumb, but I love to listen to people sing.

6) In 1999, when this song was on the charts, SpongeBob SquarePants premiered. The show remains popular among the younger set. Have you ever seen it?  I can't stand to listen to it, so I know about it and have seen parts of it, but I refuse to watch it.

7) SpongeBob has become an industry, spawning movies, a Broadway musical, video games and both coloring and comic books. Once considered children's amusements, today coloring and comic books enjoy a following among adults. Have you recently enjoyed coloring or reading a comic book?  I enjoy coloring and actually, one of the kids at school asked me to help him color a picture for a Valentine's Day gift.  It didn't take long, but I enjoyed it.  Several of the little girls at the elementary school have those adult coloring books.  They do a good job with them.

8) Also in 1999, Walmart expanded to the United Kingdom. Do you shop at Walmart?  I used to love Wal Mart, but I try to avoid it now.  It isn't that I dislike it, we just have a Dollar General by our house and I mostly shop there for little things.  Wal~Mart has it's headquarters close to where I live.  They are in Arkansas, but that is only about a 2 hour drive from my house.  It is funny all of the Wal~Mart's in Arkansas.
9) Random question -- We've all met people who aren't exactly as they present themselves. Are you good at spotting a phony?  I usually am, I get a feeling about people.   I once changed my mind about someone I thought was shady only to learn later that I was right to begin with.


  1. #7 -- Glad you enjoyed it. I wonder if I'd find it relaxing.

  2. I enjoyed Glee too for the music. Sad that some of the cast have passed away. Have a great weekend Lori!

  3. I hated Jane Lynch in the show (because she was so good at her character), though I love the actress.

  4. The Alamo is on my list of places to visit one of these days! Coloring is relaxing to me. Loved reading your answers! Happy Saturday!

  5. Ha on Walmart. As you know, I am employed there and will refrain from commenting furthur, LOL. Have a beautiful day, friend.

  6. In my family, men can't be bothered with the bills. Both me, my sister-in-law, my cousin, and my Mom were all the bill payers in the family, so I find it interesting when I run across a woman whose husband pays the bills. How did you decide?

    1. Karl is better with accounting than I am and he also makes a lot more money, so he handles it.

  7. Hi Lori:
    I enjoyed your answers today.
    I pay the bills when they come in.
    I definitely shop at Walmart, Ron retired from there.
    Have a great day.

  8. I am with you on #6, the times that I saw parts of the shows I didn't like them.

  9. The music was why I liked Glee, too. They did such a good job on such a wide variety of music. Hope you have a good weekend, Lori!

  10. I pay the bills because I do it online, for the most part, and my husband hates dealing with computers. But now that I think of it, I have always paid the bills even in the pre-computer days. I guess it's just my job!

  11. My kids liked Glee, I didn’t watch, but the music was good.

  12. I liked Glee. And I picked Justin Timberlake, too! :)

  13. I think Glee is also on YouTube or one of the other streams. It sounds like something to watch. thanks!
    I forgot about Justin Timberlane; but to be honest, I liked him better when he was in his original duo. He's a wonderful player/song writer for guitar.
    I don't shop at Walmart anymore, though I used to shop for garden supplies there. This is because they squeeze their suppliers until it had forces them out of business. And they killed so many main streets in little Midwest towns that it hurt.
