Saturday 9 ~ Wake Me Up Before You Go ~ Go

Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go
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: Wake Me Up Before You Go Go (1984)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This song was inspired by a note WHAM! partner Andrew Ridgeley left for his parents. He accidentally wrote "go" twice. What was the last handwritten note you left for someone?
If letters count I wrote 2 on January 11,2017. I left my Husband a note on January 3.
2) Born Georgios Panayiotou, George Michael was the son of the Greek restauranteur in East London. When you think of Greek cuisine, what comes to mind?
Greek Chicken Pasta
1 16oz package linguine pasta
1/2 c. chopped red onion
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Cloves Garlic, Crushed
1 Pound Skinless, Boneless Chicken Breast Meat ~ Cut into bite size pieces
1 14oz can Marinated Artichoke Heart, Drained and Chopped
1 Large Tomato, Chopped
1/2 Cup Crumbled Fete Chese
3 Tbsp Chopped Fresh Parsley
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
2 Tsp Dried Oregano
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 Lemons, Wedge, or Garnish
1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water until tender  
    yet firm to the bit, 8 to 10 minutes; drain.
2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; saute until
    fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir in the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken
    is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 5 to 6 minutes.
3. Reduce heat to medium-low; add artichoke hearts, tomato, feta cheese, parsley, lemon
    juice, oregano, and cooked pasta. Cook and stir until heated through, about 2 to 3
    minutes. Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper, and garnish with lemon

3) He was a terrible driver and admitted his license was suspended a number of times. Have you ever lost your license?

I lost my license back in October 2007 because of taking Seizures

4) WHAM! partner Andrew Ridgeley, on the other hand, is a talented driver who got to live his fantasy by racing Formula Three in Monaco. There are companies that sell racetrack driving experiences that allow you to spin around the track at dizzying speeds. Is this something you like to try? 

No, I will pass

5) In 1990, Frank Sinatra famously gave George Michael advice. Ol' Blue Eyes told the younger man to enjoy his fame, to remember all those lean nights traveling from gig to gig by bus and, now that he's successful, "loosen up and swing, man." Who last gave you advice? Did you take it?

A Niece, No I didn't

 6) Mr.  Michael's neighbors have reported since his passing that he seemed to live rather quietly, and that they usually saw him when he was out walking his three dogs. Tell us about the last time you spoke to one of your neighbors.
Today. He comes here in the morning to ride with my hubby to work

7) Fansites tell us that George Michael's favorite cereal was cornflakes. What breakfast cereals are currently in your kitchen?

Strawberry Special K, Corn Flakes, Cheerios

 8) In 1984, when "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" was popular, Murder, She Wrote premiered on CBS. Today it's still seen in reruns all over the world. Are you a fan?
When it first came on I watched it all the time. Now I watch it once in awhile.
9) RANDOM QUESTION: What's your secret to a good night's sleep?
I wished I knew!!
