saturday 9: i’ll be there for you

doing this now as i may not have the chance tomorrow

Saturday 9: I’ll Be There for You (1995)

1) This song begins with, “So no one told you life was gonna be this way …” What do you wish you knew five years ago about your life now?
to take care of yourself because getting older sucks.

2) This is, of course, the theme from Friends, which is frequently shown back-to-back on TVLand and TBS. Have you ever “binge-watched” a show, catching episode after episode?
yes. i do that most times, as i watch shows on netflix, so i just watch them episode after episode.

3) On the show, Monica and Rachel shared a beautiful 2BR/2BA Soho apartment with a private balcony. It’s estimated that such a pad would cost at least $3500/month in today’s real-life New York. Describe your dream home.
yeah i always wondered how they afforded that. and then you see joey & chandler’s appt across the hall, and it wasn’t as great. anyway, my dream home would be quite small, actually. just comfortable and cozy enough to house me and my things. i always wanted a house on a cliff overlooking the beach. or a beach house. but really, i’d like anywhere quiet and kinda out of the way from traffic and nosy people.

4) Of the six main characters, only Chandler was an only child. Do you have any siblings?
yes, i do. by the way, what was up with that national sibling day yesterday? that was weird.

5) Gunther was the barista at Central Perk, the coffee shop where the Friends hung out. He had an ongoing, unrequited love for Rachel. Are you crushing on anyone right now? Does he/she know?
i have crushes on a few actors. no, they don’t know. 😛

6) Currently Matt (“Joey”) LeBlanc stars in the Showtime series Episodes, playing a character named Matt LeBlanc. If there was going to be series based on your life, who would play you?
there wouldn’t be anyone in the acting profession who could play me. actors are all really attractive.

7) Courtney Cox, who portrayed Monica, has the Twitter handle @CourtneyCox and has 628,000 followers. What was your last tweet?
it was a pokemon song because i was doing that pokemon challenge on google maps so that song was in my head.

8) The creators of Friends were massive soap opera fans. They named their characters after recurring characters on All My Children* and had Joey appear on Days of Our Lives. Have you ever been hooked on a daytime drama?
wow, i didn’t know that. no, i’ve not been hooked to daytime dramas, only the night time ones. i was always at school or work, so i never watched daytime ones.

9) The band who performed this song, The Rembrandts, took their name from the famous Dutch painter. Can you see any artwork from where you’re sitting right now? Tell us about it (and yes, a school painting by your 7-year-old nephew counts).
the only artwork i see right now is something i painted. it has animals and a sort of earthy feel to it. it’s hanging on my wall.



  1. You know, Siblings Day was news to me, too. Maybe yesterday was the first one ever.

    I think it’s terrific that you express your creativity with paint. I’m hopeless in that way.

  2. I’m impressed that you hang your own work. Excellent. I had never heard of “national sibling day” either. I think sometimes stuff just gets made up.

  3. National Sibling Day? Really? I guess there’s a day for everything now!

  4. You are so right about #1.

  5. I wondered why I kept seeing all the posts with old photos of people with their siblings. Never knew about it either. I wish I could paint something good enough to put up on my wall. lol! I’ll stick to using my kids artwork or other people’s. 🙂

  6. Lovely! Another painter. :o) And remember, Everybody’s beautiful, in their own way. And it’s true. And yes, getting older is so fast you can’t hope to prepare for it. lol
