Saturday 9 - Yankee Doodle Dandy

I'm NOT a Yankee Doodle Dandy but.........I'll take the quiz anyhow! Happy July 4th to all my American visitors!

1) This week's song was performed by James Cagney in the famous movie of the same name. Do you plan on going to the movies this holiday weekend?   I don't visit the cinema much at all - quite happy waiting on the pirate copy DVD!

2) Though known for his larger-than-life screen presence, Cagney was only 5'5". How tall are you?   I'm 5ft 4in, in my iffy little socks!

3) During the Revolutionary War, General Washington celebrated the 4th of July by giving his troops a double ration of rum. Will you imbibe any spirits this holiday weekend?   No - I'm not much of a drinker. I had a couple of wines last night, so that will do me for a good wee while.

4) American history was one of Crazy Sam's best subjects in school. In which class did you earn your best grades?  English, Music and Art  

5) The Fourth of July means we're in the middle of summer. Are you careful about applying sunscreen?  Careful?....I'm effing paranoid!  I burn so easily in the sun.  I get told I'm a bit of a misery guts but I'm rarely out when it comes to summer.


6) Mosquito bites can be a major summer annoyance. Are you scratching any itches right now?  I'm not, despite the Scottish midge being at it's annoyingly best.  Maybe hiding indoors works!

7) Emergency rooms report an increase in wrist injuries in summer, with people falling off bikes and skateboards and jamming their wrists catching hard-hit softballs. Have you ever had a sports-related injury?  I twisted an ankle at gymnastic practice once, many moons ago but nothing too bad since!

8) New York is home to Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest every year on the 4th. Will hot dogs be consumed in your household this weekend?  Sadly, no. We really only have them at barbeques or on kiddy request!

9) Atlanta hosts a 10K Peachtree Road Race every 4th of July. Are you a runner?  Hell, no!  I'm too top heavy for that!

I can't remember the last time I had a hot dog. I use to eat them as a kid.

As a pale woman who more than once has been a hungry bug's meal, I can *totally* understand why you want to stay indoors! Burns and bites can be so uncomfortable.

I had to look up Scottish Midge. Staying indoors is definitely one good way to avoid sunburn and bugs!

Cagney was only 5' 5"? I'm 5'3" on a good day!
