LET'S GET MONDAY OFF TO A GOOD SPANISH INQUISITION START

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

To see my answers to the first three parts of The Spanish Inquisition, click HERE, and HERE, and HERE. I can't believe some bloggers answer all fifty of these questions in one post. My attention span is not that . . . what? Whatever. Let's get on with it.


19. Loud music or soft?






20. Where do you go when you are sad?

I find Franklin or Willy Dunne Wooters, and I put out my arms and HUG. Sometimes I call or email a friend. So I guess the answer is that I go wherever I need to be in my house to do that stuff.


21.  How long does it take you to shower?

Not nearly as long as The Wooters Man. Probably fifteen minutes, including make-up.

22.  How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?

I don't understand the question. What is "morning"?

23. Ever been in a physical fight?


Beaten up? Yeah. Fought back? Once.


Would kill for my children.

24. Turn on?

The Wooters Man 

Dogs 
Beautiful music and works of art
Books
Laughing with friends

25. Turn-off?


Noise and/or bright lights



Well, all righty then. We're halfway done. I wonder how long I can stretch this out. If I'd done one question/day, then fifty days.

Last week on Thursday I posted a video of In The Mood, which you can see HERE. The video led to some discussion of big band music. I remembered that "the guy" from The Stray Cats had started an orchestra. The Silver Fox from The Lair of the Silver Fox (C'mon, where else would he be from? Oh my god I just ended a sentence with a preposition) reminded me that the guy is Brian Setzer. He added that Brian Setzer has almost as many tats as Favorite Young Man. 

Now that I've seen Brian Setzer's arms, I suspect he may be FYM's tattoo equal.

I want to finish today's post with The Brian Setzer Orchestra because if this music doesn't get your week off to a good start, then I don't know what will.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

  1. Love S&G!! Congrats on making it halfway. :)
    So are the 30s coming back in style? Interesting!

    1. No, The Brian Setzer Orchestra has been around quite a while. I guess the thirties and forties never really went away.

    1. Make those clothes dance while you fold them.

  3. Hi Janie - 50 questions is a little much I agree - and breaking them down makes so much sense ... good that WDW and Franklin get equal hugs! But we need them ... and loud music occasionally just to get the amazing sounds bouncing around .. usually very quiet ..

    Cheers and have a good week ... Hilary

    1. WDW and Franklin don't get equal hugs. Franklin lives here, and WDW doesn't. Franklin is the hug winner.

  4. Think I would kill for my children too!

  5. My mom would consider Simon and Garfunkel "heavy metal". Wait a second, dogs are a turn on for you? Like, in a Furry sense or "lonely, isolated farmer" sense?

    1. Your mom needs to join the twentieth century. Dogs are a turn on because they're sweet and huggable.

  6. I agree, morning is foreign and awful and should not exist.

    1. It's hideous. I got up at five this morning. The good part is . . . there isn't any good part.

  7. Hello, Janie Junebug!

    Answer #19 came as a surprise.
    I always thought of you as a
    head banging Twisted Sister kinda gal.

    You wrote:

    << Oh my god I just ended a sentence with a preposition. >>

    When I cruise the bars...
    I end every sentence with a proposition.
    (BA-DUM-BUMP)

    My dangling participle once got me
    a sentence in the pen.
    (BA-DUM-BUMP)

    Have a great day and week, dear Janie!

    1. Keep your dangling participle to yourself, buddy. One of my oldest nephews has a Ph.D. in philosophy and is a metal head. He looks the philosopher part, but sometimes he writes about heavy metal for magazines. I love him. And his younger brother.

  8. I don't feel comfortable answering a lot of questions about myself.
    People can usually get a sense of who I am by reading what I write.
    Most people would probably think I'm not that interesting:)

    1. I think you're interesting. Everyone has a story.

  9. Oh, for a shower in my own bathroom. One more week.

    Replies
    1. I don't ever want to know what it's like to be unable to use my shower, but my bathroom is a fairly recent addition to the house. I'm sure you'll love your updated bathroom.

  10. Reminds me of the old American Bandstand days. Sure got my blood pumpin! Thanks!

    1. I saw Barry Manilow in concert last winter. I loved it when he played and sang the American Bandstand song.

  11. Where do I go when I'm sad?
    Away from that soft music, that's for sure.

  12. Brian Setzer is the bomb, Janie! I love that song and video; always thought he was underrated.

    I would kill for my children AND kill my children, depending on the issue. I'm a two-fer. More bang for your buck.

    While we grandma together, let's just cancel morning. After spending years of reporting to work at 7 a.m. (after getting up, getting kids up, driving them to school or daycare, then driving to work), I am all for getting up "whenever" and that will be my empty nest dream.

    1. I'm already living the empty nest dream, but I miss my kids. You need a vacation. What day can you be here? The weather is gorgeous.

  13. Apparently I shower longer than you, but I'm not some kind of diva. I just do my best thinking there. And drinking. Using it as a means to clean myself off is merely a secondary coincidence.

    1. I wondered about the beer for the shower thing. Doesn't the soapy water get in your beer and make you sick?

  14. My toes are still tapping from that great music.

  15. Brian Setzer is so fun! Thanks for the fun Monday kick off. I'm like you w/ the bright lights & noise. I swear my hearing is getting better as I get older.

    1. Bono and I have the same problem with lights. He has a reason to wear the big shades during the day and the tinted glasses at night. It's called photophobia, and it's not a mental illness.

  16. You have persistence, Janie! At least the questions ~ and answers ~ are interesting! And I love the S&G song SOS. I've always loved it! Happy Monday!

    1. One of my older sisters used to play SOS on the piano, and we sang. We were no Simon and Garfunkel, but my mother liked it.

  17. I would kill for my wife. Hope neither of us ever has to.

  18. Replies
    1. But I don't like Paul without Artie. He does these weird arrangements of the hits they sang together. It's wrong. It's just wrong.

  19. Your answer to the loud music question cracked me up. I've missed the Spanish Inquisition so need to get caught up on the rest.

    1. And we'll have more Spanish Inquisition tomorrow.

  20. I don't like loud noise, either, which can be a bit of a problem living with three noisy people!

    1. WDW is pretty quiet unless West Virginia plays football.

    1. I would love to dance like that, but I don't think it's going to happen.

  22. I've often ended sentences with propositions...

    1. Everyone knows you're full of propositions.

  23. Oh, crap. Just read above and saw that Shady stole my joke, then cleverly posted it before mine so that people would think I stole from him.

    1. You did steal it from him. Just admit it, and you'll feel better.

  24. I like music both loud (more like fast) and soft. S & G always a fave.

  25. I have never been in a fight, which is a good thing since I think I would not fare well, when I am sad I like to be alone for a while then I like to hug my grandchildren

    1. I would like to have grandchildren to hug, whether I'm happy or sad.

  26. Dear Janie, for some reason all the videos on the blogs are "blocked" for me. I've got to figure that out next! I can't imagine answering all 50 questions. I'm a 3 to 5 question person. Peace.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm a three - five question person, too, Dee. That's why I only answer a few questions each day.

  27. A little Simon and Garfunkle always helps. I like the way you're doing list. When bloggers post the full never-ending list, I snooze. xo

  28. Great answers! I agree...better to break it up into small bits.

    1. Thank you. I often have multiple answers to a single question, so no way can I answer fifty questions in one post.

  29. I'm enjoying this series very much. Looking forward to more!
