Saturday 9: All Dressed in Love

Saturday 9: All Dressed in Love (2008)

For Valentine's Day, we need a happy love song. Hear it here.

1) In this song, Jennifer sings, "I look good in love …" What about you? When you're happy, or sad, does it show? Or do you keep an even demeanor, no matter what?

A. Apparently I have incredibly expressive eyes. I mean, STRANGERS ask me if I'm feeling okay in stores sometimes. My physical therapist merely has to look me in the eyes to know if I'm having a bad day. "Your eyes don't look right," she told me just Thursday. "You're in a lot of pain." So even when I'm trying really hard not to show it, to keep that even demeanor, what I'm feeling shows in my eyes. 

2) This song played over the closing credits of a hit movie, Sex and the City. When you go to the movies, do you visit the concession stand for popcorn, or a soft drink, or candy?

A. We usually get a bottle of water at the beginning of the movie. I have, on occasion, simply snuck in a bottle of water in my purse.

3) Think of the last movie you watched at home. Was it a DVD, DVR, streamed or cable presentation?

A. It would have been a cable presentation, I'm sure, though I haven't watched a movie in a good while.

4) Jennifer Hudson got good grades in high school and went away to Langston University in Oklahoma. But she was homesick for her family in Chicago and came home after just one semester. Have you ever been homesick?

A. Yes.

5) Jennifer received acclaim for her renditions of "The Star Spangled Banner" at the 2008 Democratic Convention and Super Bowl XLIII. Do you agree with critics who say that our National Anthem is hard to sing?

A. It's not the easiest song in the world. Especially those last high notes. 

6) Jennifer is a spokesperson for Weight Watchers and, with diet and exercise, went from a size 18 to a size 6. She says that while she's committed to healthy eating, she still enjoys ice cream occasionally. Do you prefer your ice cream in a cone or a cup?

A. I don't eat ice cream. I do eat frozen yogurt, and that's usually in a bowl.

7) Her fiance, Daniel Otunga, is a graduate of Harvard Law School. Harvard is the most famous of the eight "Ivy League" schools. Do you know the other seven?

A. Not without looking them up. I suppose Yale and Princeton are two of them.

8) With a Grammy and an Oscar, Jennifer Hudson is one of the most successful American Idol contestants. Can you name another singer who appeared on AI?

A. I never watched American Idol, so I really have no idea. 
9) Last year, Jennifer nearly bought a brand-new Ferrari because it was so great looking. At the last moment she backed out of the deal because she doesn't drive enough to warrant such an expensive car. What's the last impulse purchase you either made, or resisted?

A. I still don't have a smartphone. I resist that every time I use my flip phone.


  1. #9 -- I'm just not that big into cell phones to justify the expense of a smart phone. It always falls to the bottom of purse and I can't ever reach it in time to answer it. I don't know that I'll get into it. I think subconsciously I don't like being connected all the time.

  2. I was one of those who said she would never get a smart phone..... but caved, and I would now be lost without mine! LOL Have a great Saturday!

  3. I'd be willing to bet that your cell phone bill is a LOT less than mine! My neighbor used to have a flip phone and called it her "Amish cell phone" LOL

  4. I recognize the Ivy Leagues when I hear of them but can't recall them.

  5. I know quite a few people who are attached to their flip phones. You are probably better off.

  6. The only time that I have ice cream now is when I visit the University of Connecticut, they have a School of Agriculture and they make ice right on campus.

    And I also have a flip phone.

  7. Smartphones are, IMNSHO, definitely NOT overrated. If you stop resisting, you'll see! ;)

    Ivy League schools, OTOH, ARE!
