Saturday 9: Mama Told Me (Not to Come)

1) This song is about a lad who didn't take his mother's advice and attended the wild party anyway (hear it here). When you were young, did your parents approve of your friends? If you're a parent yourself, how have you handled it when your kids start hanging around with friends you're not crazy about?
My parents were okay with most, if not all of my friends. There came a period where I just did a lot of rebellious shit so she "hated" me and everyone I hung out with for the period she was pissed at me. For the most part though, it was all good.

2) A 2010 poll named Marge Simpson of The Simpsons the most popular TV mom of all time. Who is your favorite TV (or movie) mother?

When I was a kid, the females on TV really only had one main purpose for me, crushes or not. LOL. I mean, I know I had a number of crushes on girl TV stars that were somewhere close to my age but I can't recall giving much a darn about a mom. I guess because I watched her so much, Carol Brady - she was pretty attractive looking back but she seemed like a cool mom and I watched the Brady Bunch a lot as a kid.

3) Crazy Sam's mother is a big fan of The National Enquirer. As she likes to say, "They were right about John Edwards!" Do you read the tabloids? Cast a guilty glance at them when you're in line at the store? Or ignore them altogether?
Back in college I would occasionally read them but now, I do catch the headlines while on line at the store but haven't physically opened one for a deeper look in years.

4) Mother Winters always gave Sam peppermint tea to calm her stomach. Do you have any tried-and-true home remedies to share?

My mother was big on the chamomile tea, and not the fancy tea bags either, the type of chamomile flowers from the drug store - made me wanna eat my own vomit rather than drink that warm pee water to settle my gut.

5) Thinking of guts ... When making decisions, do you tend to consider all the options carefully or do you "go with your gut"?

I tend to over think most things, I try to trust my gut but I do look at all of the options-at least, all the options I can think of, even ones that sometimes make no sense at all.

6) Spring is here! Do you have a green thumb?
Not at all, in fact, I have whatever the direct opposite of a green thumb is. I can grow the fuck out of weeds though, with no effort whatsoever!

7) Have you put away your winter clothes yet?

Why would I do that?

8) After you lather and rinse, do you repeat?
Not with the same product. There are some days that instead of using a 2-in-1 I go with separate shampoo and conditioner then I lather and rince one, then the other (but not before singing, often out loud, the song "Her Majesty" three times - not in an OCD way though).

9) To celebrate Mother's Day, Sam is giving away Hershey bars. Would you prefer classic milk chocolate, dark chocolate or milk chocolate with almonds?

Dark Chocolate - by a mile!
