I Never Tried Again

Saturday 9

Vacation (1982)

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

1) Do you know how to water ski?

A. No. I made an effort one time when I was a teenager. The skis came off and one of them hit me in the back of the head and gave me a concussion. I never tried again.

2) Do you have 2014 vacation plans?

A. We have family coming in from out of state in a few months. I think that will be our vacation. We will do day trips with them.

3) Do you have a passport?

A. Not a current one.

4) If you took a 7-night cruise, could you completely unplug -- no phone calls, no texts, no internet?

A. If my husband was with me, yes.
5) Do you own a travel alarm clock?

A. No.

6) Though the Go-Gos broke up in 1985, they frequently reunite for live performances. What's the last concert you attended?

A.  Elton John. No, wait, it was Mannheim Steamroller.

7) Their first hit was "Our Lips Are Sealed."  Can you be trusted with a secret?

A. I have been a news reporter in some fashion or another for almost 30 years. You wouldn't believe the things I've been told "off the record" - and which I've never told another soul.

8) In 1982, when this song was popular, the comedy Tootsie was in theaters. What movie makes you laugh?

A. Monty Python and The Holy Grail.

9) Sam is chewing on a Tums as she composes these questions. What's the last over-the-counter medication that you took?

A. Acetaminophen and an allergy pill. I swallowed them both at the same time.



  1. I love the Monty Python movies. The show still makes me hoot.

  2. Oh, I LOVE Mannheim Steamroller! I've never seen them in concert but I'd like to do so--I bet they put on an incredible show!

  3. Great movie choice. "Whatcha gonna do now, bleed on me?"

  4. I gave my parents tickets to Mannheim Steamroller for Christmas this past year. Then I regretted not getting a ticket for myself! I'd love to see them, my parents enjoyed it.

  5. Good Old Monty Python! My hubby's been going about singing the Lumberjack Song recently for some reason or other. They're ageless, I suppose!

  6. I'd probably get a concussion from water skiing too. And break some bones.....

  7. I forgot Monty Python! The classics never go out of style.

  8. Now I think I go and watch Monty Python on Netflix

  9. Ahh...great song. No vacation plans here, though I'd at least like a day trip or two. And what a coincidence -- the last OTC drugs I took were the same as you. Allergies seem to get worse every year. :-\
