Five O'Clock World (1966)

1. Think back to Friday. Did it fly by? Or did you find yourself checking the clock and wishing it was 5:00?

Friday was indeed a day that went by very quick.
To much to do and too much to take care of.

2. This song refers to the 5:00 whistle that signifies the end of the work day. What's the last whistle, alarm or buzzer you heard?

I heard the national alarm at the first monday of the month at 12.00 o'clock.

3. In the 1960s, the Vogues often appeared on TV variety shows to promote their record albums. Do you have the TV on now, as you answer these questions?

I had it on, but as soon as I sat down, someone else took the remote. I was listening to a very funny party program, and now there's some very irritating music on.

4. "Vogue" means "popular or fashionable." Tell us about something that you feel is in vogue today.

An Ikea lamp that you can pull open for more light and push closed for less light. Love it!

5. Vogue magazine reported that the big Fall/Winter trend was brocade. Describe the latest addition to your Fall/Winter wardrobe.

A sweater, bought in the sales.
It's pink, because I finally want to wear pink when I want to wear it.

6. Vogue editor Anna Wintour is such a difficult boss that disgruntled employees nicknamed her "Nuclear Wintour." What qualities do you think make a good boss?

Good mood, empathic, clear about expectations, taking away stress.

7. Ms. Wintour was rumored to be the inspiration for the character of Amanda in the book and movie, The Devil Wears Prada. Did you receive any books or movies for Christmas 2015? Did you receive any gift cards that you then used for books or movies?

No, we don't do presents here at christmas.
I got some very nice cards, but no gift cards.

8. "Vogue" was also a dance, made famous by Madonna in her 1990 hit by the same name. Can you name another Madonna song?

No...I can't, sorry Madonna.

9. Random question from a Sat9-er: How organized are your clean clothes? (Stacked in piles, folded neatly in drawers, still in the dryer....?)

I dry them in the open air, not in a dryer.
When they're dry I fold them and put them on a pile, before they go in the drawers.
