Tunnel of Love

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!

1) Do you enjoy amusement park rides?

2) In this song, Bruce likens romance to riding through the tunnel of love. The Red Hot Chili Peppers sing about a "Love Rollercoaster." What amusement park ride reminds you of your relationships?

3) Bruce's nickname is The Boss. Who was your best boss? What made him/her a good supervisor?

4) Bruce's father was a bus driver and his mother was a legal secretary. What professions did/do your parents work in?

5) Bruce met his wife Patti at a bar in Asbury Park. Do you believe you can pick up lasting love in a bar?

6) Springsteen was unable to work for years because he was embroiled in a lawsuit with his management company. Have you ever been sued, or sued someone else?

7) Bruce won an Oscar for writing the title song for the Tom Hanks movie Philadelphia. Do you have a favorite Tom Hanks movie?

8) Bruce's official Twitter account (@springsteen) has more than 389,000 followers. Do you tweet? If so, how many people follow you?

9) Bruce's drummer, Mighty Max Weinberg, led the band on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien. Who do you think is funnier -- Conan or Jay Leno? Or are you looking forward to Jimmy Fallon?

Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us on next Saturday for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend.

I'm having trouble leaving comments on some blogs, but I've read 'em all before mine. I don't know if it's a Blogger/Google Chrome problem, or what, but it's annoying! Happy weekend, y'all!

To Bud:

onestly wouldn't have guessed, from the pictures I've seen, that you're old enough to have kids my age. (I'm 36.) But then, my dad's 70, so my judgement may be a little skewed. Speaking of which, what a poignant answer to #1. I'm not a grandma yet, not for a long time I hope, so I'm still in the raising kids stage. There's nothing better or more important to me than that.

Yes. To the old thing, my oldest is 38. My next turned 36 Friday...
