Saturday 9: Five O'Clock World

Saturday 9: Five O'Clock World (1966)

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

1. Think back to Friday. Did it fly by? Or did you find yourself checking the clock and wishing it was 5:00?

A. I don't have a 9-5 job, so I really didn't care when it was 5:00. But it was a busy day.

2. This song refers to the 5:00 whistle that signifies the end of the work day. What's the last whistle, alarm or buzzer you heard?

A. The buzzer on the clothes dryer. Really exciting, right?

3. In the 1960s, the Vogues often appeared on TV variety shows to promote their record albums. Do you have the TV on now, as you answer these questions?

A. No. I seldom have the TV on.

4. "Vogue" means "popular or fashionable." Tell us about something that you feel is in vogue today.

A. Being rude to other people and thinking your opinion is "fact."

5. Vogue magazine reported that the big Fall/Winter trend was brocade. Describe the latest addition to your Fall/Winter wardrobe.

A. I bought three new pair of pants last week. One was denim, the other two were black.

6. Vogue editor Anna Wintour is such a difficult boss that disgruntled employees nicknamed her "Nuclear Wintour." What qualities do you think make a good boss?

A. Understanding, compassion, empathy, and knowledge of product/service being offered.

7. Ms. Wintour was rumored to be the inspiration for the character of Amanda in the book and movie, The Devil Wears Prada. Did you receive any books or movies for Christmas 2015? Did you receive any gift cards that you then used for books or movies?

A. I received a coloring book and an Amazon gift certificate that I have yet to use.

8. "Vogue" was also a dance, made famous by Madonna in her 1990 hit by the same name. Can you name another Madonna song?

A. Like a Virgin.

9. Random question from a Sat9-er: How organized are your clean clothes? (Stacked in piles, folded neatly in drawers, still in the dryer....?)

A. Semi-organized. Most are in drawers or on hangers, but maybe not so neatly folded and perhaps crammed in the closet somewhat, and the ones I washed first thing this morning are still in the basket.

Thanks so much for joining in Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us next week for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend!

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. Jeans and black slacks are two items I *always* need.

  2. Because I just finished my trip to the laundromat, I know my clothes are neatly folded and put away, or at least stacked.

  3. i hate to agree with you about the being rude business because that's just so sad, but unfortunately i see it all too often on like facebook and stuff. :(

    i am intrigued about the coloring book, as i am hearing a lot of people receiving coloring books for christmas. what is the theme?

  4. Your comments about the boss (#6) were succinct and perfect. And yes, being rude seems to be in Vogue. Maybe it's Fox news?

  5. I got this really cool new dryer that plays a jingle instead of a buzz. It's really nice.

  6. The big "In" thing is coloring books for adults. It seems like wherever I go I see coloring books, at a senior center I was talked into take a Mandala class. It is kind of like creating your own coloring book.

  7. 1. Friday night dragged. Slow night at work, and I had nothing crafty with me to work on. I learned my lesson and was glad to have a small cross-stitch project with me Monday when we were even slower due to snow.
    2. Last bell/whistle/buzzer: Delivery buzzer at work yesterday. Alarm did not go off this morning, but thankfully I woke about that time so I wasn't running late.
    5. The most recent additions to my wardrobe were socks. Could really use some new pants and shoes, though.
    7. Received DVDs and a couple B&N GCs for Christmas.
    9. Clean clothes are hung up or in drawers, dirty clothes always go in the basket.


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