Saturday 9

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: Love Yourself (2015)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) In this song, Justin sings that he doesn't like to admit he's wrong. When did you most recently cop to a mistake? Oh lord, I do it all the time.  Walt is always quick to correct me when I get political ire not quite right.

2) He also complains that his girl doesn't like his friends. Who is someone that you've met recently and liked?
I don't often meet new people these days.  I think the last person I met whom I liked very much was Sandy, who shared a day with me at Logos--I met her more than a year ago.  I have met some women at the hospital, but haven't had a chance to get to know any of them, though they all seem very nice.

3) Justin first performed this song live on The Ellen Degeneres Show. Who is your favorite talk show host?
I don't watch afternoon talk shows any more, but when I did I always liked Ellen.  At night, I like Colbert

4) Young Mr. Bieber recently had his credit card rejected ... at a Subway Sandwich Shop. Think about your last trip to a fast food restaurant. Did you pay with cash or plastic or your phone?
It's been quite some time now but was probably a cheeseburger at Jack in the Box.  I always pay with cash.

Even though we're featuring a lack-of-love song, this is the last Saturday  9 before Valentine's Day and so this morning we shall focus on the upcoming holiday.

5) In Victorian England, it was considered bad luck to sign a Valentine. Have you ever received an anonymous card from a secret admirer? No.

6) Retailers report that approximately 3% of pet owners buy Valentines for their furry friends. Have you ever purchased a gift for a pet on a special occasion?
Not really, except I might (if I think about it) buy turkey flavored dog food for them at Thanksgiving.

7) It was once believed that if a maiden ate a heavy meal before bed on February 13, her dreams that night would reveal the identity of the man she would eventually marry. Do you find that eating too close to bedtime disrupts your sleep?
I don't know My sleep is so weird,  don't know what affects it..

8) The postmaster in Verona, Italy, reports that Shakespeare's Juliet Capulet still receives love letters. Without looking it up, can you give us a quote from Romeo and Juliet?
Well, there is always "Romeo, Romeo, wherefor art thou, Romeo?"  or "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet."  I don't like Romeo and Juliet.  It makes me as angry as Grease.  Romeo is madly in love with Rosaline at the beginning of the play until he takes one look at Juliet and then forgets all about Rosaline and wants only Juliet.  She falls instantly in love with him and within two days they are married and both dead.  I believe Juliet is 14.  What does that teach young people?  (I don't like Grease because the message seems to be that you can only become popular and find love if you become a slut.)
9) Necco's Sweethearts -- those little candy hearts that say things like "Be Mine" -- are Valentine Day's top-selling confection. Sam never could stand eating these candies. Do you like them? I'm was never fond of them.  But they are sweet and bad for me, so of course if they were around I would eat them.
