Saturday 9: Hopelessly Devoted to You

Olivia Newton-John is a breast cancer survivor and October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Please spread the word about early detection.

  1. This is a sad song about unrequited love. What's your favorite love song, and is it happy or sad?
    -- The song that springs to mind is Taylor Swift’s, You Belong With Me. I’m sure if I had someone special in my life, it would be a happy song, but alas it is not.
  2. stampThis song is from the Grease soundtrack. When that movie came out in 1978, the price of a postage stamp was just 15¢. When's the last time you visited the post office?
    -- I had to go to the post office just last week. I have one bill that doesn’t have an option to pay electronically. So I write one of my two paper checks each month and mail this payment. So I had to swing by the post office to buy some stamps. The design I chose is at right.
  3. Not many people know that Olivia's maternal grandfather, Max Born, won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1954. Share something about yourself that we might not have known before this morning.
    -- I was once investigated by the Secret Service.
  4. Olivia's father was an officer in MI5, the UK's secret service. Sam's most recent run-in with the authorities had less intrigue or glamor, as it included a policeman pointing out the stop sign she'd somehow missed. Tell us about your most recent encounter with law enforcement.
    -- I frequently work with law enforcement as part of my job. The last time I had “unwanted” law enforcement attention was in November 2009 when the officer also kindly pointed out that I had missed a stop sign.
  5. gay-massage-houstonOlivia is part owner of an exclusive, luxury retreat called Gaia. If you had a day of free access to a heated pool, golf course, tennis court, gym, and day spa, but could only use one, which one would you choose?
    -- The Day Spa
  6. Are you flirtatious?
    -- If I am, I’m not very good at it.
  7. Do you more often wear silver, gold, or platinum?
    -- None of the above. The only jewelry I wear occasionally is a titanium ring.
  8. When you're on the phone, do you usually make the first move toward ending the call? Or do you find it hard to say goodbye?
    -- I usually make the first move to disconnect. “Allrighty then, I need to go”. If that doesn’t work then, “Ok I need to go use the bathroom”. That usually works.
  9. Would you rather be smarter, richer, or more attractive than you are right now?
    -- Smarter… the other ones would fall into place after that.

  1. I like your answer to #9. I hadn't thought of it that way, but you're right!
