Saturday 9: Stormy Weather (ZJ's post)

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!

Saturday 9: Stormy Weather 

1) Do noisy storms scare you?
Yes, all the time. The last time I experienced a very strong storm (or typhoon in the Philippines) was in the year '95-'96 (can't remember exactly) and I can still remember the sound of the heavy downpouring rain and the howling wind that blew some of our neighbours' houses and toppled huge trees in our street. 

 2) Mother Winters tells us Lena Horne was considered one of the great beauties of the 1940s. Whom do you consider one of today's most beautiful women? 
I don't know how do you define "beautiful" so I cannot answer that directly. I have no idea as to what exactly is the formula to being beautiful. Is it the physical features,  the personality and character, or the values and principles that they believe in?

3) Crazy Sam admits it -- there's a big bag of recycling she really should take out to the bin. Yet she's composing this meme. What should you be doing, instead of answering her questions? 
I should be out there partying the night. But I caught this stupid stomach virus so I'm done for the night.

4) Sam may be crazy, but she's not stupid and will never waste her money on Cialis, no matter how many unsolicited emails she receives! What's the most recent addition to your spam folder? 
The most recent one I deleted is from a Canadian pharmacy offering a huge discount on slimming pills. I wonder if the spammer knows me personally, hahaha.

5) What was the last thing you cooked? 
I cooked eggs and made toast for breakfast. 

6) Do you remember the lyrics to your either your high school or college fight song? If so, please share a bit. 
No idea what a fight song is.

 7) "Samantha" is the feminine of "Samuel" and means "Listener." What's the derivation of your first name? 
Well, I tried to look it up but ended up with confusing info. One site says the origin of my name is Hebrew, while another says it's English. The meaning also varies, but refer to God - God is gracious  (Hebrew), or, God's gracious gift (English). There, feel free to choose. 

8) Are you following the NBA or NHL this year? If so, which team are you rooting for? 
Not much for NBA and NHL. I'm more of ATP and WTA follower (tennis).

9) Gloves, umbrellas, sunglasses, keys -- which of these do you misplace most often?
Keys and eyeglasses definitely! I have this knack for misplacing a lot of my stuff.

Simple thunder and lightening is not a worry for me, but if a storm has tornados in it, that is another story.

I often hear from Canadian pharmacies, too! And I hope you feel better and are out partying soon.

PS A “fight song” is played by the high school or college band as their team takes the field or court (depending on the sport) to get the players excited and let them know the crowd supports them.
