Saturday Nine: Viva La Vida (2008)

Saturday, August 29, 2015
This week's Saturday Nine:
  1. The song refers to the singing of choirs. Have you ever been in a choir or a vocal group? I was in choir in elementary school, but it was mandatory.

  2. Chris Martin sings of when he "ruled the world." If you were in charge and had infinite power, what would you change right away? Sustainable drinking water for everyone. And ending famine. Let's get everyone's basic human needs sorted out first.

  3. Chris used to be married to actress Gwyneth Paltrow. USA Today, The Washington Post and The Daily Telegraph have all run articles about how Gwyneth seems to annoy so very many people. What celebrity gets on your nerves? Kylie Jenner. Also, Kanye West. Proof that you cannot buy class.

  4. Coldplay's first big hit was, "Yellow." What colour are you wearing right now? Dark grey shirt and black lounge pants.

  5. Sam remembers when she used to hear this song everywhere and can't believe that was 7 years ago! When is the last time you had a similar "my, how time flies!" moment? Um, when I got a Facebook invitation to my ten-year high school reunion last year.

  6. In 2008, when "Viva la Vida" was popular, John Grisham's latest legal thriller, The Appeal, was jumping off bookshelves. What have you read this summer? I read like, two to three novels a week, so I've read a lot this summer, but I just finished reading Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan, and now I'm reading the sequel that just came out, China Rich Girlfriend.

  7. Thinking of books: Let's say a biographer has taken the task of writing your biography. What would you title your life story? "Makeup Hoarder Extraordinaire (and Wannabe Foodie)."

  8. 2008 is also the year Paul Newman died of cancer. Name a Newman movie. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

  9. Random question: Do you like garlic? Yep, as long as it's cooked.
