Saturday 9: Heat Of The Moment

I am back in to full swing with doing fun memes again. I can't wait to get back on track. So today we start with Saturday 9. Hope you enjoy and join in the fun.




Saturday 9: The Heat of the Moment (1982)
 
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) What's something you did or said "in the heat of the moment?" 

A: I said yes to working double time a few times when I was just in my own little world. Boy was that a mistake.

2) Asia's founder and bass player, John Wetton, passed away in January. One of his bandmates remembered him as a reliable performer who made everyone around him look better. Do you enjoy being the center of attention? Or would you, like Mr. Wetton, prefer to play a supporting role? 

A: I Don't like being the center of attention so I rather play a supporting role.

3) Asia is a British band who played their first US concert at Clarkson University in Potsdam,New York. The nearest major city -- Ottawa, Canada -- is a 90-minutedrive from Pottsdam. When you were last in the car for an hour or more? Where were you going?

A: My mom's for Christmas. She lives 2 hours away from us.

4) The song refers to disco hotspots, which apparently, by 1982, no one wanted to go to anymore. Let's make that negative into a positive. Describe your perfect night out with friends. Where would you go?

A: Dinner, Shopping and a movie.

 
5) In 1982, the year this song was popular, someone laced bottles of Tylenol with cyanide. That's why we now have tamper-proof caps on many products. Have you used anything in a tamper-proof bottle yet today? 

A: No not yet today.

6) In 1982, Time Magazine'sPerson of the Year wasn't a person at all, it was "the computer." What do you use your computer for most often?

A: Blogging and reviews for books.

7) 1982 also saw the premiere ofThe Weather Channel. Where do you learn the day's weather forecast? (Watching the local news on TV, checking your phone, looking out the window ...)

A: Checking my phone and the television.

8) In 1982, Arnold Schwarzenegger's movie, Conan the Barbarian, was a hit in theaters. When you settle down to watch a movie, is it usually a fantasy, like Conan? Or do you prefer another genre (action, comedy, adventure, romance, drama, classic ...)

A: I like romance and drama but Adventure as well.

  
9) Random question: What is something you try to avoid?

A: Drama.

  1. I like how you think. Life tosses enough at us without us creating additional drama for ourselves.

  2. I avoid drama as much as possible. I grew up in a household full of it; no more for me if I can help it!

    1. I did as well. Still have some but I try to avoid at all costs now.

  3. Oh yeah... Drama. I just friended a twenty some woman when she messaged me with a "Hey!" I repealed "Yes?" and she flew off the handle because I didn't say "Hi" to her. Too much drama! I click on unfriend.

    1. Ya I get that sometimes and I will definitely delete them.

  4. Drama is very unsettling. After all, we can think what we like and secretly smirk, or even practice voodoo or tar and feathers with no one the wiser.
    I'm sure that the Kremlin, Harvard, MIT, Cambridge, and the CIA have tried pretty hard, but there's still no mind reading.

The Simple Women's Daybook

For Today Monday April 3,2017



Looking out my window... It's cloudy and looks like it could rain somete soon. 



I am thinking... That I need to make a list of things I need to pack for our week vacation. 

I am thankful...  For warmer weather and of course spring. 

I am wearing...  A flower t-shirt and Jeans. 
I am creating... Nothing at the moment. Don't have time to make anything at the moment. Maybe once Emily gets to be a little older I can start making things again. 


I am watching...  My son doing the splits and My daughter rolling over on her tummy. Never a full moment I'm this house. 






I am reading... 




A Princess Next Door. It's good almost done. And can't wait to read book 2 in the series.


I am hoping... That my daughter's​ teeth will come in soon. She is cutting a few teeth and poor baby is fussy.


I am learning...  Which foods Emily likes to eat and what she doesn't when she eats her solids. Love the cute faces she makes. 


In the kitchen... Monday: Burritos

Tues…

The Friday 56

Welcome to The Friday 56 hosted by Freda’s Voice.
This is a really fun meme! The only rules are to grab a book (any book), turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader and find a sentence or a few (no spoilers) that grabs you and post it. Then go over to Freda’s Voice and leave your link so we can visit your 56!

My 56 for this week is from:

My page 56: 

It didn't matter what happened. If Jack got scared away or disgusted by all the royal attitudes or aplomb, then we wouldn't have had a future anyway. Better to find out now, before I fell for him any further.
                         Summary : 
I was born the oldest princess of a tiny country in the Alps, which means my future has been planned out for me since I was an infant. I was supposed to marry a rich, arrogant stranger to help restore the royal bank accounts, but I decided to go to college in the States instead. It was the one act of rebellion in my very sheltered life.

That's how I met Jack Watson. He lives next door, and he…

Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.



It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is a meme with a new host!  It's now being hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. This is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!
