Saturday 9

(Link in meme-roll)
My Funny Valentine (1991)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) In this song, Ms. Kitt sings that her lover is her favorite work of art. Tell us about a piece of artwork you can see from where you're sitting now. (Yes, that crayon drawing created by your 5-year-old nephew counts.)
It's actually super-dark in the corners of the room right night, so I can only barely see the papyrus my college roommate brought back from Egypt 34 years ago. I'm sure she paid approximately one dime for it, but we had it and a matching one my inlaws had matted & framed a few years ago.
2) She asks him to not change his hair. When will you next find yourself in the stylist's chair?
I haven't had a haircut since early September, so I should probably get that remedied. My stylist is going to want to cut my hair shorter though, so there'll be an argument. "Argument" is too harsh; there'll be a discussion.
3) Ms. Kitt always wanted to be a performer and attended the New York School of Performing Arts (aka the "Fame" school). Think back to your high school self. In what ways would you be surprised by how your life turned out?
I had no specific expectations for what my adult life would look like. I think it's turned out more or less the way I assumed it would.
4) Ms. Kitt took over the role of Catwoman on TV's Batman. Name another Batman villain.
Gotta go with The Penguin.
5) Ms. Kitt enjoyed tremendous success performing in Parisian nightclubs. Have you ever been to Paris?
Nope. Not really all that interested.
This is the last Saturday 9 before Valentine's Day and so this morning we shall focus on the upcoming holiday.6) The holiday is also known as The Feast of St. Valentine. Do you have a special meal planned for next Wednesday?
Oh, you're funny as hell. No. I work 5-9 that day, so no fun meals for me that day. And very likely there will be no Valentines either.
7) The phrase "wear your heart on your sleeve" began in medieval times. On Valentine's Day, men would celebrate the holiday by displaying their lady love's name on their sleeves. If you were going to adopt this custom, whose name would you wear?
Beast, of course.
8) Women buy and send more Valentines than men do. What's the last greeting card you received?
I got a couple of cards ("Hi, we love you!" non-Valentines) yesterday...so don't feel so bad for me regarding the lack of cards next week. ;-)
9) Men buy and send more roses at Valentine's Day than women do. What's your favorite flower?
Heirloom roses, from the year. This year, I might just go buy myself some flowers. I'm in need of a reminder than winter will end eventually.

I like those little heirloom roses because they're so cute and durable.

You prevail in the argument/discussion. After all, it is your hair!

Yeah, Valentine's Day is a work day here, too, and after getting up at 3:45 A.M., I guarantee that by 7:00 P.M....ain't nobody going to feel like romance.

I like roses and the heirloom roses are sweet. My dream was to have a backyard full of roses and I did for years until the creepy disease got them and had to dig them all up. How nice to be able to go so long without a haircut.

I dread Valentine's Day because it dregs up so much high drama among high schoolers. My own Valentine's Day is nothing compared to that!

I love every kind of rose. Even the ones with thorns in their stems.

I definitely need a reminder that spring is only 6 weeks away.
