Teenage Dream

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: Teenage Dream (2010)

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


1) Much of the video for this week's song takes place in a convertible and on the beach. How's the weather where you are? Would you be comfortable riding around with the top down today?
 
It has cooled down considerably but it is humid and rainy thanks to a tropical disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico
 
2) This video was filmed all around Katy Perry's hometown of Santa Barbara. Amtrak runs through Santa Barbara via The Pacific Surfliner. Tell us about a memorable train trip.
 
 In 1961 we went to California on a train.  My dad had some work to do there and my mother wouldn't fly so going by rail was what we did.  It was fun.  My mother didn't agree.

3) Katy sings that her boyfriend thinks she's funny, even when she gets the punchline wrong. Do you think you're a better joke-teller or audience? 
 
Probably teller

4) Her "teenage dream" lover is shown working out with a heavy bag. When is the last time you visited a gym?
 
Ha! Years and years

5) Katy changes her hair a lot. She's gone from long black hair to cropped blonde hair with stops at red, green and purple. Today, are you having a good hair day? 
 
I never have  a good hair day

6) Katy thinks dimples are "irresistible" and can't help poking a finger when a dimpled friend smiles. Do you have dimples?
 
 No
7) Two of Katy's fragrances (Meow and Purr) are sold in cat-shaped bottles. Are you wearing a scent as you answer these questions? 
 
 I don't wear scent
8)  Katy's favorite dessert is ice cream (specifically Cold Stone Creamery's Birthday Cake Remix). What's the last dessert you ate?  
 
I broke my diet and at a biscotti last night with a cup of tea

9) Random question: How often do you change your bedsheets?

 Once a week.  Monday is sheet day.  It always has been.  Except when I had babies in a crib -- then everyday was sheet day
