Saturday 9 ... A Little Late


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: Margaritaville (1977)

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

1) In this song Jimmy sings of "booze in the blender." What do you prepare in your blender?
I don't HAVE a blender. poo
2) As the song opens, Jimmy is sitting on his front porch swing. Describe the front porch of the building you're in right now.

My porch is decorated for fall. Small porch, lots of sitting out there, though. 3) Jimmy sings of being able to smell boiling shrimp. Do you prefer your shrimp boiled, glazed or breaded?
4) During the song, he mentions his flip flops. Have you put your flip flops and sandals away till spring? Or is it still warm enough to wear them?
I wear flip flops til the snow comes
5) Jimmy Buffett had hoped this song would be recorded by Elvis Presley, but The King died before he could perform it. What's the first Elvis song that comes to mind?
Blue suede shoes.
6) Buffett fans are known as Parrotheads. Concert attire for a well-dressed Parrothead often includes a Hawaiian shirt and a foam fin hat. What will you be wearing tonight?
Jammies ;)

7) Loyal Parrotheads paid between $500 and $5000 to see Mr. Buffet at a fundraiser for Barack Obama's 2012 Presidential campaign. What's the most you would pay for a concert ticket?
Well, my ex doesn't read this blog anymore to help me, but i think we paid 300 to see Kenny Chesney in Vegas.
8) Jimmy is an outspoken environmentalist and supports causes like ocean conservation, saving the manatees and expanding the Dallas Zoo. What steps do you take to help save the planet?
I don't throw my Wendy's bags out the window.
9) Uh-oh. When Jimmy and the Coral Reefers played in Wisconsin this past August, more than two dozen concertgoers got tickets for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Do you believe pot should be legalized?
Oddly, yes.


  1. I don't think it's odd that you're pro legalization. Altering one's perception is a big part of Jimmy Buffett lore, isn't it? (Even if you don't personally get high or stoned.)

    1. True, but I sometimes wish it were legal with the extreme pain I suffer from. I bet I could get some from Jimmy himself!!
