saturday 9 for december 28: baby it’s cold outside

Saturday 9: Baby, It’s Cold Outside

1) How cold is it where you are?
it’s a bit cooler, upper 70s-lower 80s, i would think (just checked–82 degrees F). not terribly cold but not enough to put on the a/c. it’s just nice and comfortable.

2) This familiar song was introduced in a 1949 film called Neptune’s Daughter. Name another movie song.
from that movie? or another movie? i just watched pretty in pink the other night so of course, the song in my head is “if you leave.” although i guess i could have also went with the song “pretty in pink,” heh.

3) Who was the last person to call you “baby?”
sigh. this brings back strong memories. at my first job, all the men i worked with called me “baby.” i was 16, so i was the baby of the group. but it wasn’t derogatory (or at least i didn’t think it was), it was more a term of affection. and one of my exbfs would always call me baby which i didn’t mind, either. it’s been a long time since anyone’s called me that, though.

4) This time of year is important to college football fans. Have you watched/will you watch any bowl games?
no, i won’t, unless it’s my own alma mater playing.

5) Are you sad to see the holiday decorations begin to slowly disappear? Or do you think they should all come down right away?
i want them all down now!!! haha! no, i’m a little sad, because i like to drive around at night and look at all the lights. the ones on my street that used to go all out have not put up anything in the past 3 years, so i have to go a little further than normal. but i like just cruising past and looking at lights, more than because it’s a signal that christmas is over. i think i just like the driving around slowly at night for a “purpose” rather than random meandering. i seriously can’t wait until this season is over, although i would miss the driving around.

6) Did you tell the truth about your weight on your driver’s license, or did you shave off a pound or two?
i actually made it more than what i currently weigh.

7) Crazy Sam swears that the Echinacea she takes every morning keeps her healthy. Her boyfriend tells her she’s wasting her money. Do you take any herbal supplements?
no, i don’t, but sometimes i wonder if i should. i am currently on antibiotics and its side effects are just killing me so i wonder if i shouldn’t just try some other supplements to keep me healthy and preventing things rather than going after them after i’ve already gotten ill.

8) The average restaurant in the US tip is 18%. Are you a generous tipper?
i’m not overly generous. i usually give 20%, rounding up if service was great, and a bit down if not.

9) This is the last Saturday 9 of 2013. Do you know the lyrics to “Auld Lang Syne?”
i don’t, actually. we don’t sing it around our neck of the woods. i kinda think it’s just a mainland thing.
