Saturday 9: Bubbly

Saturday 9: Bubbly (2007)

... because Jodi suggested Colbie Caillat
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) Singer Colbie Caillat says this song was inspired by a trip to "the beach and having a wonderful day with a person you like." Have you been to the beach yet this summer?

A. No, I have not. At the moment I have no plans to go.

2)  Are you careful about applying sunscreen?

A. Not particularly, unless I am at the beach, which I am not. For this reason, I end up with a "farmer's tan" nearly every year.

3) Colbie made her TV debut in a 2009 episode of Saturday Night Live. Are you a big SNL fan?

A. I haven't watched it in years.

4) "Bubbly" is often a synonym for champagne. When's the last time you enjoyed a glass of bubbly?

A. Probably in the late 1980s at someone's wedding.

5) Colbie sang the National Anthem at the third game of the Red Sox/Cardinals World Series in 2013. How is your favorite baseball team doing so far this season?

A. I don't have a favorite baseball team.

6) In 2005, Ms. Caillat tried out for Season 4 of American Idol but was eliminated very early in the process, before she could even audition for Simon, Paula and Randy. The winner that year was Carrie Underwood. Are you a Carrie Underwood fan?

A. Apparently not, since I can't think of anything she sings.

7) In 2007, when "Bubbly" was popular, actress Yvonne deCarlo died. She was best known as Lily on The Munsters. If you had to choose (and yes, this Saturday you have to), would you rather hang out with Lily Munster or Morticia Addams?

A. Hmm. Tough choice. And you're not playing by the rules of no rules there, Sam, making a rule that one must choose. But I will be good and say Morticia Addams. 

8) In 2007, MySpace was faced with a serious challenge from Facebook, and it's obvious which social network won. Did you have a MySpace account? If so, do you still post to it?

A. I never had a MySpace account.

9) Random question: Which have you had longer, your ironing board or your plunger?

A. My ironing board. It's the one I bought when I married.


I encourage you to visit other participants in Saturday 9 posts and leave a comment. Because there are no rules, it is your choice. Saturday 9 players hate rules. We love memes, however.


  1. Ironing boards should generally be one of those things that last forever, but I had to replace ours because we left our old one behind in VA.

  2. Farmers tan here, too! lol


  3. When an issue is as critical as Morticia vs. Lily, it's imperative that we each take a stand.

  4. I have an ironing board. Somewhere. I think.

  5. I use my ironing board for other uses than ironing. It's great for drying my lace hand knit goods. :-)

  6. Love this song!

    1 -- No, I'm not a big beach person, and don't really like ours -- too many reports of toxic blue-green algae.
    2 -- I always use sunscreen
    3 -- Have not watched SNL in years
    4 -- New Year's Eve
    5 -- Our team has had a rough year, but they have started to do better.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
