I Would Wander the Stacks

Saturday 9: I Gotta Feeling 

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

1) What would make tonight a good, good night?

A. My husband coming in early, taking me out to dinner, and then driving me to Barnes and Noble, where I would wander the stacks a while and find a few good reads. I'm really pretty easy to please.

2) In the song, he sings that he's got money and wants to "spend it up." How much cash is in your wallet right now?

A. Really? I have to get up and go look? Okay. Seven dollars. I haven't been to the ATM in a while.

3) The lyrics include "mazel tov," which means good luck or congratulations. What other Hebrew/Yiddish phrases do you know?

A. I honestly have no idea.

4) The colorfully named Black Eyed Peas include Fergie (born Stacey Ferguson) and (William Adams) and Taboo (Jaime Gomez). If you could choose a stage name, what would it be?

A. Susan Pumpernickel. 
5) This song was crazy popular in Canada, debuting at #2 on the charts. Have you ever visited our neighbor to the north?

A. No, I haven't. I have some Canadian change in my "special coins" jar, though.

6) When's the last time you laughed really hard?

A. Probably the other night when my husband farted. What is it about farts that we find so amusing, anyway?

7) Who received the last text you sent?

A. I don't text. We are too cheap to pay for texting.

8) Which sounds like more fun -- skiing or skating?

A. They both sound really dangerous to an old gal like me. I used to roller skate and a very long time ago I went ice skating on a frozen pond. It was rather bumpy. If I went skiing I'd probably come home in a body cast.

9) Thinking of sports, are you looking forward to The Super Bowl?

A. Can't say that I am. I don't watch football and I don't care about the commercials, and I have no idea who is doing the half-time show. I will probably read a book.


  1. I am with you on that last one, Anita, although my husband may watch the game if it comes in with out attic antenna. We too are TOO cheap to pay for cable or satellite and could care less about TV and so much less about commercials. Now wandering a bookstore or library are fun treats for us too.

  2. You said "fart." Tee-hee.

    I think you're the only one who uses her cell phone LESS than I use mine!

  3. Fart.. haa haa haaa! good one.. I love love love just hanging out in a book store - I could browse for hours. It makes me sad that even books are becoming digitized - and I know I'm part of the problem, not the solution. The iPad is so much easier to carry sometimes!

  4. Oh. . . a trip to the bookstore with nowhere else I need to be sounds simply wonderful. I need to make that happen very soon . . .

  5. I miss having a local book store. It's the biggest drawback to my community.

  6. oh! i would love to go to a bookstore, too! i have been so bummed the past two years to see our two book stores close (the last one on dec 31, 2013). i loved just going to the bookstores, taking a deep breath and inhaling all that book goodness, and then looking among all the titles, feeling the slick covers, and fanning the perfect pages. ah. so sad there's not any left. well, there's the local library, i guess, but they're not open late enough for me to visit. and the security guard might look at me funny if i walk in and take a deep breath and go ahhhhh!

  7. My husband farts so often that I have become immune to their humor.. LOL

  8. You are probably better off not getting sucked into the world of texting.

  9. I don't even know when the game begins tomorrow. I imagine that it is sometime in the evening. That reminds me, I should check the time when it will get over and avoid being on the road when the drunks are driving back home.

  10. We resisted any cell phones for half a century and only started texting because the DDs all prefer it. It's come in handy to keep them all informed during some hasty hospital things going on with their grandmother and others.
