1. What are your plans for March?
My birthday is this week, and my wife is taking me out to dinner. We’re meeting with our financial advisor. I’m seeing my cardiologist. We’re picking up our daughter from college and returning her a week later. I’m getting my teeth cleaned. We’re going to see a play. Plus the usual – choir rehearsal, church, ZOOM with my sisters, book reviews, and blogging.
2. Did you ever have or go to sleepovers as a kid?
Not that I can specifically recall. It’s possible.
3. Which books would you pick for a book binge?
Any number of the ones I’ve purchased but have not read. We Who Believe in Freedom- Alice Green. Caste – Isabel Wilkerson. The Mask Is Off – Dr. Mildred Smoth-Chang. I’ve got tons of them.
4. What features do you love most about your home?
The built-in bookcases in the room I am presently sitting in.
5. Favorite songs from tv, movies, and video games
I like story songs for TV themes, from The Beverly Hillbillies to Cheers. Mike Post created a lot of instrumental themes for shows I watched, such as The Rockford Files, Hill Street Blues, and Law and Order. I also liked the Earle Hagen themes such as The Dick Van Dyke Show and the Andy Griffith Show.
I have over 100 soundtracks, some from movies I’ve never seen. Often a song’s power comes from where it happens in the film; the first that came to mind was the title song from the movie Philadelphia by Neil Young, which plays near the end.
I have no idea about video game songs.
6. What group games do you like to play with others
Cards: pinochle, hearts, spades. Scrabble, Monopoly, Uno, Boggle, and probably others.
7. How often do you try something new?
Every day is something new.
8. What type of sushi is your favorite?
California rolls, I guess.
9. Do you prefer to relax or go on adventures during vacation?
10. How do you prevent burnout?
11. Which colors look best on you?
I look marvelous in everything, dahlink. Actually, I have no idea, but my wife often says, “That shirt looks nice on you,” and it can be a variety of shades.
12. Do you like brunch?
13. Trends you showed up late for
Just about everything. I am a late adapter to virtually every technological innovation. My first iPhone I got in 2020 or 2021. I seldom watch streaming services. My landline still exists.
14. What’s your favorite drink order?
My first drink was a Tom Collins. In general, I drink white wine if I’m consuming alcohol.
15. Which clothes or accessories make you feel most confident?
A hat keeps me warm in the winter and protects me from sunstroke the rest of the year.
I'm a librarian. I hear music, even when it's not being played. I used to work at a comic book store, and it still informs my life. I won once on JEOPARDY! - ditto.

I’ve always wanted built in bookcases! I know you do love those since you love to read!! I hope you have a great week and happy birthday week!!
I am with you as a soundtrack fan! And I couldn’t think of Mike Post, although I thought of several of his theme songs.
I hope you have a wonderful birthday! 🙂
Happy birthday! It sounds like a busy week for a birthday week! I hope you enjoy!
We still have a land line too. I also love soundtracks, from TV, movies, and stage musicals. Whenever I think of California rolls i wonder how much avocado and cream cheese there is in Japan.
Happy birthday for this week.
Mrs PMs tipple of choice is white wine.
Ha, I also sad Tom Collins.
