I'm a Believer

Saturday 9: I'm a Believer

1) This song is about a guy who fell in love when he saw her face. Do you believe in love at first sight?  Absolutely.... it's something cosmic that you can't put your finger on but it doesn't happen for and to everyone.  Some people, I think, have LUST at first sight... but that's a whole other topic.

2) "I'm a Believer" is the best-selling Monkees song. Can you name another one?  Daydream Believer.  Otherwise, not a single one.  I'm not exactly what you'd call a fan.  My friend, Nancy, however, OH EM GEE!  She was THE biggest fan all through our youth.  Luv ya Nancy!

3) On their TV show, the boys competed for the same girl. Have you and a friend ever been romantic rivals?  Not really.  I had several friends that always seemed to date the guys I dumped.  It never was a big deal though.

4) In another episode, the Monkees visited the circus. If you were confident there was a good strong net beneath you, would you walk across the high wire?  With training, yes.  Otherwise, that'd really hurt my feet.  I have some tender tootsies.  Apparently, however, any ole monkey can do it (shut up, I know it's a damn gorilla... go with the joke!)

5) The Monkees show originally aired on Monday nights. Do you have a favorite day of the week?  Not really.  I'm a mom.  They're all pretty much the same.

6) Davy Jones guest starred on an episode of The Brady Bunch. The plot revolved around Marcia's efforts to get him to perform at the prom. Share one of your memories from a school dance.  I hated school dances.  I thought they were stupid.  Unless, of course, this guy was going to ask me... and then, you know... I'd be giddy.  If you don't know who he is... I'm not sure we can be friends.

7) At the height of their popularity, the Monkees' faces and logo appeared on a lot of merchandise, including lunch boxes. Which would you rather have for lunch -- chicken salad, tuna salad or egg salad?  Yes!  I don't have a preference.  I LOVE THEM ALL!  Chicken salad with apples, grapes, pecans, celery.... tuna salad with onion, celery, pickle relish, egg, mustard and apple or egg salad with creamy may and lots of black pepper.  MMmmmmmmmm

8) You have an afternoon all to yourself. Would you rather spend it at the mall, checking out what's new in the stores and people watching, or walking through the forest, observing the birds and trees and leaves?  I would rather be punched in the nose than spend a day at the mall.  Throw me in the forest ANY DAY!

9) Do you have a good memory for names?  No.  I don't have a good memory for anything.  You want to know how good my memory is?  THIS would be my "celebrity" of choice that would be most like me....

But you remember Finding Nemo and Dora the Explorer! So you do have a good memory for the important things.

Ha! Ha! I would rather be punched in the face as well..........

No, not sure I do believe in love at first sight. I think to love someone you have to know them, know that you love more then his or her appearance. The that takes me back...way way back.
