Saturday 9 ~ A Little Late.

I Miss You

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: I Miss You (1997)

... because Smellyann suggested it

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

1) In this song, Bjork knows what she's looking for in a mate, she just hasn't met him yet. If you are/were still looking for The One, what two qualities would you hope he/she possessed?
Humor and honesty

2) The lyrics ask if you believe "that a dream can come true." Do you believe that dreams come true if you wish hard enough?
Wish hard enough? No. Work hard enough? Definitely. 

 3) Bjork turns 50 this year. Do you treat "milestone" birthdays differently? Or to you, is your age just a number?
Just a number.

4) Bjork was always highly musical. At the tender age of 6 she began studying classical piano and flute. Sam is impressed because at the age of 6, she was still trying to master tying her shoes. Do you consider yourself musical?
On a pork and bean sort of level...

 5) She was born and raised in Reykjavik, Iceland. While the city is known for its bar scene, beer was banned there until 1995. How often do drink beer?

6) 66ÂșNORTH is one of Iceland's biggest employers. This clothier makes quality outdoor wear and this time of year they sell a lot of durable rainwear. Do you have a raincoat?
Raincoat? I don't even wear WinterCoats!!!

7) In 1997, when this song was popular in clubs, Titanic was popular in theaters. Sam saw it and yes, she cried. How about you? Have you seen the saga of Jack and Rose? Did you enjoy it?
I did, but I had had a 6 year  old with me and some scenes were a little uncomfortable ... to say the least. 

 8) Also in 1997, singer John Denver died. Name a John Denver song.
Love John Denver. I just bought my niece Sheila a West Virginia shaped key chain made of bronze and I had the inscription "Almost Heaven" put on there. She goes to WVU and EVERYTIME we go to pick her up, visit, or take her home we ALWAYS sing "Almost Heaven..."  . The kids down there are always singing or playing that song at any given time.!!! Its very cool. 

 9) Random question: If you had the opportunity to sky dive, would you take it?
In a heartbeat.
