Saturday 9: Come to my Window

Melissa Etheridge is a breast cancer survivor and October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Please spread the word about early detection.

  1. cruz-lee-palin-300x300This song is about a woman passionate about love and willing to pursue it, no matter what "they say." Are you fearless when it comes to public opinion? Or do you worry about what "they" think of you?
    -- Sadly, what other people say/think matters a lot to me. I’m trying to overcome that failing, but I believe I’m required to be honest in these things… it’s in the constitution… just ask Ted Cruz. He has met people who have actually read it… and that counts.
  2. Melissa's father was a high school teacher. Tell us about a teacher who had an impact on you.
    -- A number of teachers had an impact on my life in various ways, but the teacher whom I credit for turning my life around and setting me on an unquenchable quest for knowledge is Mrs. Livingston. She showed me how to love literature, how to look at the world around me and ask “why?”, and how to think critically of the information offered.
  3. Melissa won a Grammy for this song. If you won a major award, where would you display it?
    -- I’d put it on top of my file cabinet at work for people to see.
  4. Which TV game show do you think you'd do better on -- The Price Is Right or Wheel of Fortune?
    -- Choosing between those two… Wheel of Fortune. Although, I would MUCH rather meet Drew Carey. I’m just bad at guessing the value of name brand products because I almost ALWAYS buy the store brand.
  5. Are you neat and organized?
    -- VERY… don’t judge!
  6. When was the last time you went more than a day without washing your hair?
    -- If I’m not planning on going out, I’ll skip a shower. But if I have to run to the store, I’ll jump in the shower. I REFUSE to be one of those peopleofwalmart people.
  7. When you eat Chinese food, do you use chopsticks or a fork?
    -- Chopsticks
  8. Are you a good cook?
    -- so the critics have said.
  9. We're having a party in your honor! Would you prefer a costume party, a bowling party or a pool party?
    -- Bowling… its one of those things that is really fun, but you don’t do often enough so when your group does it, someone says “why don’t we do this more often?”.


  1. You're so right about bowling! It's something we always do as a group -- never just two of us -- and since it's hard to coordinate we don't do it very often. And yet, like you said, we always have a good time.

  2. Drew Carey is a funny man...I loved it when he did Whose Line is it....

  3. I hope to see Cruz and Palin on the ticket together.... Facebook would never recover from it.

  4. And OHHHHHhhhhhhhh those people from WalMart are despicable sometimes!!

  5. LOL at the comments above... and loved your answer to the party question. So much I almost want to switch my answer to bowling!
