Saturday 9:No One's Here to Sleep.. except me.

Summer is fading away slowly and today is a cool, breezy, sunny day... perfect really.

Tourists are here until Labor Day, then they will begin to head on home.  Though those who own summer homes will spend weekends here until early October if it stays somewhat warm.
Then slowly but surely the Snow Birds will leave their summer homes to head back to Florida for the winter.. sissies.

Here is my Saturday 9. 


Saturday 9: No One's Here to Sleep (2013)

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

1) This song is the theme of How to Get Away with Murder, the legal drama that premiered in 2014 and airs on Thursday nights. Are you a fan?
No, I've never watched it and got rid of cable a month or so ago.

2) The song's refrain says, "I'll never catch up with you." Behind the wheel, do you carefully observe the speed limit? Or do you have a lead foot, making it hard for anyone to catch up with you?
Yes, I keep up with traffic and never had a ticket.
3) How to Get Away with Murder is about Annalise Keating, a law professor at a top Philadelphia university. She has a reputation for being tough, demanding and able to turn her students into successful defense attorneys. Tell us about a teacher who helped prepare you for life after graduation.
 
I can't think of one at all. 

4) The students she feels show the most promise -- and are recruited to help her solve murders -- are known as The Keating Four. Did you ever sense that you were your teacher's favorite?
 
Yes. My Russian and History teacher liked me a lot. We became good friends.

5) Viola Davis was just nominated for an Emmy for playing Professor Keating. Ms. Davis was born on a farm in SC. Have you spent more of your life in a rural, suburban or urban setting?
 
Mostly suburban , small towns close to rural areas.

6) Next to Annalise Keating, Viola Davis is best known for her Oscar-nominated role as Aibileen in the movie, The Help. Have you seen it?
No. I have not seen and have no idea who Annalise Keating is. Will look her up.

7) In 2014, the year How to Get Away with Murder premiered, we lost two famous comedians: Robin Williams and Joan Rivers. Who was the last person to make you laugh out loud? (This means actually, literally laughing out loud, not just keystroking LOL.)
 
An unknown comedian on radio who does an imitation of Arnold Schwarzenegger answering the phone in a pizza shop.

8) The 2014 Olympics were held in Sochi. Have you ever been to Russia? If not, is it a dream destination of yours?
Never been to Russia but my daughter is going there for business. They have offices in many countries. Not a dream destination.

9) Random question: The sign on the railing says, "Wet Paint." Do you touch the railing to see if it's really wet?
 
Nope. I would ignore the sign if it is obviously old and the paint has long been dried and looks it however.
Tomorrow is Sunday Stealing. Be there or be square.

  1. I don't think I was a teachers pet, but I have become friends with professors. One lives down the street and FB regularly/IM, one emails regularly, and the other keeps a blog and FB/IM as well.

    We spent 5 years without cable and internet and I am unwilling to live like that again, just saying.lololol

  2. No reason to look up Professor Annalise Keating. She's the fictional professor at a fictional Philadelphia law school on the show How to Get Away with Murder.

    Just the idea of Arnold working at a pizzeria is pretty good. I can see why it deserved your real-life "LOL."
