Saturday 9 – JT

Today is (now) officially the first day of MY summer break!  I’m relieved the curriculum work is done and look forward to some time to re-energize without worrying about school.  However, as my first day of break, I’m left wondering WHY ON EARTH I am up at 7:30 in the morning.  As far as I’m concerned THAT must stop immediately.  For now, though, some time for a Saturday 9.

On a side note, my friend Jlo is a Justin Timberlake fan.  She even boasts that she was a fan back in the day when he had long, curly locks, looked to be about 15, and sang in *N Sync.  She’ll enjoy this post.
 
1) When was the last time that you got dressed up, or to borrow from Mr. Timberlake, "fixed up to the nines?"  Hmmm, I can’t remember the last time I was dressed to the nines…prom?  I like to dress nicely, but “the nines” isn’t really my thing.

2) Justin Timberlake is known for his threads. Do you try to keep up with fashion trends?  I’m not as concerned about it as I used to be.  Thank goodness jeans and cute shoes are still in style. 

3) While on tour, Justin has a cigar roller on call so that he and the band can enjoy a "gentleman's club" atmosphere back stage. Do you enjoy the smell of a good cigar?  I wouldn’t say I enjoy the smell, but I think it’s more tolerable than cigarettes. 

4) Justin appeared on Star Search when still in grade school, and he's been working ever since. Did you work when you were a kid?  I did chores for an allowance as a kid and babysat in the neighborhood when I was old enough. 

5) JT has appeared several times on Saturday Night Live, a show that premiered before he was born. Who is your most favorite ever SNL cast member of all time?  I’m not a regular watcher of SNL, but I’d have to say Adam Sandler and Jimmy Fallon.  Although I like the old-school cast like Billy Crystal and Steve Martin. I did see JT’s “Dick in a Box” from when he he hosted SNL, and it’s pretty funny.

6) Justin is a very good golfer (6 handicap). Will you play this summer?  I’d rather dress to the nines.

7) A round of golf requires hours outside in the elements. Have you ever endured a painful sunburn?  The days of going to the pool or the beach slathered in baby oil caused many a damaging sub burn.

8) When they were young, Justin dated Britney Spears. Obviously, it's been easy for him to keep up with her successes and problems over the years. Do you wonder how one of your exes is doing? No, not really. 

9) Ever since his days with N'Sync, Justin Timberlake has supported music education. Did your grade school offer music classes? Yes, the school had once a week K-3 music and 4-6 orchestra or chorus.  I tried my hand at the violin, but it didn’t go well.  Songs?  I think we learned Mary Had a Little Lamb right off the bat but I don’t remember the other songs.

Happy Saturday!

  1. My father kept on trying to get me to play golf but chasing a ball around in a field didn't seem like fun to me.

    1. Both my parents took up golf before retirement and then became obsessed with it. It's too low key for me.

  2. I liked Jimmy Fallon, but only really on the Weekend Update segments. And golf, at my age now, I'll pass.

    1. When I lived in Boston he and Rachel Dratch did a skit about Boston and it was the funniest thing, right on the money.

  3. As a redhead it was insane that my teen sisters and I would slather ourselves in baby oil and burn burn burn.

    1. Huh, now that's a stumper right enough. Now I've forgotten what I put in the first one.

      I must read up on a cigar roller. I thought that was a joke spoken by people like James Caan's character in the Godfather about Cuban child labour.

    2. Trying to remember passwords, is that why?
      I've never heard of a cigar roller either...I thought they came rolled. A good movie reference though.

    3. Don't know, don't think so though. They just vanished.

      This notion of a personal cigar roller smacks of 'let them eat cake'. It's one thing to go to a club where you can sit smoking with a whiskey that could get an old age pension. But this makes Richard Branson's rich persons space travel seem the heights of scientific endeavour. http://www.virgingalactic.com/

    4. It definitely sounds like a case of bored rich guys. I guess if you can get anything you want anytime you want it, things lose their novelty. They have to start making things up.

  5. I can't remember anything from my violin lessons, except pizzicato. I really like Jimmy Fallon, especially his thank you notes.

    1. I don't watch his late night show but he often visits Jon Stewart's and Stephen Colbert's shows. He is funny.

  6. Your sunburn answer made me shudder, literally. I'm white as a piece of paper and think if I wore baby oil in the sun, I'd explode in a ball of flames, like a bug in the sun under a magnifying glass.

  7. TOTALLY should have added Adam Sandler. He was one of the newer guys that I did like on SNL. I kinda think they've just plummeted downhill but no one has the heart to pull the plug. :o/

  9. HAPPY SUMMER!
    It was very hot here today but thankfully my daughter is house sitting for a house with a pool :) So we will ride early tomorrow and then lounge at the pool;

    Hope you are beating the heat!

    1. Oh, it's just been awful. While the weather sites said 104 today my outdoor thermometer said 111. Tomorrow's forecast says 111, so who knows. It's too hot to do anything. Just took the dog out and it's still 87...at 1:00 in the morning! I'm melting!

  10. I can't golf, I think flip flops are a fashion statement, and I hope to never smell another cigar, ever. Have a marvelous vacation Pumpkin.
