Saturday 9 ~ Where You Lead ~ 8/17/19

Where You Lead (1971)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This is the theme of The Gilmore Girls, a TV show that ran  from 2000 to 2007. It recently enjoyed renewed popularity as a reboot. Were you a fan?

I've watched a few episodes but wasn't a hard core fan.  Maybe I need to check it out on Netflix.  What do you think?  Should I?

 2) The show is about thirtysomething Lorelai Gilmore, her teenage daughter Rory, and her parents, Richard and Emily. The four of them had dinner together every Friday night. Who did you have dinner with on Friday? What was on the menu?
Every Friday, we too, have a Family Dinner.  Last night was in celebration of my Brother's birthday so we had Pizza and Cake :)  Happy Birthday, Dan!

 3) Lorelai is outgoing and talkative. How about you? Are you seldom at a loss for words?
As a young child I was VERY shy.  I wouldn't say I'm "talkative" now but I've come a long way, baby!

 4) Rory dreamed of going to an Ivy League school and then becoming a broadcast journalist. When you were in high school, what were your ambitions?

I've always wanted to be a wife and a mother.  Guess I'm living the dream!

5) Rory's grandfather (and Lorelai's dad) went to Yale and performed with the Whiffenpoofs, Yale's famous a cappella group. Have you ever sung in front of an audience?

I belong to our Church Choir (mostly a Ladies Choral these days).  So, yes, I've sung in front of an audience.  My Aunt Donna wants me to sing a solo but I'm just not into that.  I'll sing with a group but not by myself :) 

6) Rory's grandmother (and Lorelai's mother) Emily was very active in civic organizations and worked hard on the Hartford Zoological Society's Annual Silent Auction. Have you ever attended an auction? 
Does a White Elephant Sale count?

7) Alexis Bledel, who played Rory, went on to appear in Mad Men and The Handmaid's Tale. Of these three shows -- Gilmore Girls, Mad Men and The Handmaid's Tale -- which would you prefer to binge watch?

I didn't know she was in The Handmaid's Tale.  I think I'll have to start binge watching that one.  I love period pieces, so that would be my pick.

8) Carole King originally wrote this week's song, "Where You Lead," for her Tapestry album. Do you have a favorite Carole King song?
Can't say that I do.

9) Random question: If zoo animals could talk, which animal do you imagine would be the rudest?

 The monkeys.

  1. I think monkey wins with so many saying monkeys. Happy birthday to Dan!!! I am so glad you had such a nice dinner. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend.

  2. Thanks for stopping by, it's always fun to meet another blogger. Pizza and cake sound like the perfect birthday celebration, I love both! Have a wonderful Lord's Day!

  3. I don't see monkeys as being rude. They too easily bond with humans. Now Llamas, that's another story!

    I couldn't get into Handmaid's Tail. I read the book and when I started to watch the TV series, I knew what was coming...and I didn't want to see it. I did not enjoy the story.

  4. I love that your family gets together for family dinners. Everyone in our family has such different schedules that it's impossible most of the time. It's my least favorite part of modern life.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  5. Family get togethers make for great dinners. I hate that we see so many families not having dinner together these days.

  6. Sounds like a nice birthday celebration. Did you all sing before he blew out his candles? (And if you did, was he embarrassed, or did he enjoy the attention?)

  7. Its great to have family traditions like getting together to eat.
    Handmaids Tale is very dark and its hard to see women treated so horribly.
