Saturday 9 ~ No One's Here to Sleep ~ 8/24/19

No One's Here to Sleep (2013)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

 1) This song is the theme of How to Get Away with Murder, the legal drama that premiered in 2014 and airs on Thursday nights. Are you a fan?
I started watching the show when it first came out but other shows took precedence over it and I've not gotten back to it.

2) The song's refrain says, "I'll never catch up with you." Behind the wheel, do you carefully observe the speed limit? Or do you have a lead foot, making it hard for anyone to catch up with you?
I'm going to confess that I have a bit of a lead foot, but not too bad!  I usually try to go no more tan 5 miles an hour over the speed limit unless I'm running late.  Then look out!

3) How to Get Away with Murder is about Annalise Keating, a law professor at a top Philadelphia university. She has a reputation for being tough, demanding and able to turn her students into successful defense attorneys. Tell us about a teacher who helped prepare you for life after graduation.
Mrs. VanMeter was my high school English teacher.  She taught me a love of reading and also of grammar.  It comes in handy while writing my blog and teaching my daughters to speak correctly :)

 4) The students she feels show the most promise -- and are recruited to help her solve murders -- are known as The Keating Four. Did you ever sense that you were your teacher's favorite?
I always got very good grades but I never felt as though I was a "favorite".  I was too shy for that...

 5) Viola Davis was just nominated for an Emmy for playing Professor Keating. Ms. Davis was born on a farm in SC. Have you spent more of your life in a rural, suburban or urban setting?
We live in the middle of nowhere so I guess that would qualify as rural.

6) Next to Annalise Keating, Viola Davis is best known for her Oscar-nominated role as Aibileen in the movie, The Help. Have you seen it?

Yes, I have seen the movie but it was a few years ago and I only saw it once. 

7) In 2014, the year How to Get Away with Murder premiered, we lost two famous comedians: Robin Williams and Joan Rivers. Who was the last person to make you laugh out loud? (This means actually, literally laughing out loud, not just keystroking LOL.)
My girls and hubby make me laugh every day!

 8) The 2014 Olympics were held in Sochi. Have you ever been to Russia? If not, is it a dream destination of yours?
I can't say that a trip to Russia is on my Bucket List...

 9) Random question:
The sign on the railing says, "Wet Paint." Do you touch the railing to see if it's really wet?

Hmmmm????  I might!
Please leave a comment with a link so I can return the visit!


P.S.  I hope you will join in the Fall Into Reading Challenge!


  1. I have no desire to visit the rest of the world, I rather see the USA first.

  2. I know the answer to #9 should be, "Of course not!" But if I'm honest, I know I'd want to try it.

  3. I need to be challenged to get into a book lately I ahve a lot going on but a good book is good for me so I need to take that "medicine"!!

  4. Russia isn't on my bucket list either. I'm fascinated by pre-soviet history, but not too fond of the current politics. Sooooo, we'll just leave that one off the list. Have a great weekend!

  5. I was also too shy to be the teacher's pet. I am ok with that. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend!

  6. I'm a bit nervous about all things Russia these days. I would have loved to go there but not now.

  7. I was shy (still am) but that seemed to draw teachers toward me. They wanted to pull me out of my shell. Sigh.
