9 on Saturday

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: Livin' La Vida Loca (1999)

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

1) Ricky Martin sings that he and the girl dance in the rain. Do you feel like dancing this morning?
It is Friday as I write.. I am tired and worn out .. no dancing today and for me, that's unusual!
2) The lyrics tell us the girl prefers champagne. When did you last enjoy a glass of the bubbly?
 We had Asti Spumonte on New Years Eve.
3) When Ricky first heard "Livin' La Vida Loca," he imagined  the subject of the song was a "Bond girl," the glamorous love interest of James Bond in the movies. Since 1962, there have been more than 20 Bond films. Have you seen any/many of them? Do you have a favorite Bond?
     I like most of them but Daniel Craig now tops the list.
4) Ricky tells interviewers that when he was very young, he'd sing in the family kitchen, pretending a wooden spoon was his microphone. Crazy Sam admits to lip synching into a black Magic Marker. When you gave imaginary concerts, what did you use as a microphone?
Just my hand or my real microphone.  I sang for my singing lessons into a mic.
5) Ricky began working at the tender age of 9, performing in commercials. How old were you when you received your first paycheck?
  I was 14 years old
6) Ricky does yoga to stay in shape. Have you ever tried yoga?
Yes and I do face yoga now too.
7) Ricky is of primarily Spanish descent, with a little French mixed in. When you think of French cuisine, what comes to mind?
 Creme Freche and  meat pies.
8) Ricky once had his own restaurant, Casa Salsa, in Miami Beach. Have you ever worked in food service?
 I have helped out in coffee lines.
9) Random question: What is your best quality? 
That I really like people I think.

    I've done a full face plant before but never face yoga. I know, it's not the same thing. *giggle*
    I hope your day is happy and blessed. xx
