 Straight Up

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!

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

Saturday 9: Straight Up (1988)

1) In this song, Paula sings about being in a dream. Did you dream last night?
I always dream! Last night was bizarre. 

2) When Paula enrolled at California State University, she planned on studying broadcasting and becoming a reporter.  Think about your career aspirations when you were 19. Did you follow through and stay on track or, like Paula, did you veer off and find success elsewhere?
When I was 19 I was a baker at the local Country Club, as I got older, I became the ''executive baker'' at that Country Club. 35 years later, I was axed ;)   ain't life grand!! Fortunately, I always ended up on my feet. 

3) For a while she was a "Laker Girl" and performed at L.A. Laker games. Do you have a favorite NBA team?

Nope. Perhaps I should. I live near Cleveland ( Cavs ) and Pittsburgh ( is there a Pittsburgh Basket Ball team? ), and my niece is an account executive for the Miami Heat... So, take your pick, I'll pretend like I like them both.

4) Paula was once married to Brad Beckerman of Stillhouse Spirits, a company that specializes in whiskey. What's your favorite alcoholic beverage?
Yummy rummy egg nog. Minus the egg nog ;)

5) Paula has been dancing since age 8 and, as you can see from the video, Paula moves very well in heels. Tell us about your most comfy shoes.
Any one of my 'Clarks'. But, since I have had a 'boot' on for 2 weeks, everything looks 'odd' with that boot!

6) Paula admits it was her passion for jewelry and that inspired her to design her own line for QVC and Avon. What is your favorite thing to go shopping for?
Target accessories ;)

7) She advises young girls to "keep the faith and don't lose your gut instinct." How about you? Are you more logical or instinctive?

8) In May, Paula traveled to Austria for The Life Ball, a fundraiser to help those afflicted with HIV/AIDS. When is the last time you left the country?
A month  ago, briefly.

9) Paula Abdul is a spokeswoman for Avon's "Go Check Yourself" campaign for breast health awareness. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Do you know anyone who has been touched by this disease?
Yes, personally. Sadly. Scarily.
