Saturday 9: My Funny Valentine

Saturday 9: 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.)

A. There's a picture that I took of a sunrise over the Peaks of Otter off the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is in hues of orange and black. Across the top of it I have written "Never Fear Tomorrow."

Here is a picture of the picture. I can't find the original on my computer. It sits up high on my bookshelf.

The original print looks better.

2) She asks him to not change his hair. When will you next find yourself in the stylist's chair?

A. My next appointment is two weeks away.

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?

A. No kids, for one thing. Still living near where I grew up, for another.

4) Ms. Kitt took over the role of Catwoman on TV's Batman. Name another Batman villain.

A. The Penguin. The Joker. The Riddler.

5) Ms. Kitt enjoyed tremendous success performing in Parisian nightclubs. Have you ever been to Paris?

A. I went to Paris when I was a junior in high school with a class group.
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?

A. Not at the moment.

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?

A. My husband's.

8) Women buy and send more Valentines than men do. What's the last greeting card you received?

A. Christmas card.
9) Men buy and send more roses at Valentine's Day than women do. What's your favorite flower?
A. Iris.

  1. That's a beautiful photo and a great thought with it. I've only been through the Blue Ridge Mountains once, but the views were incredible!

  2. That is a wonderful photo and great reminder each day to not worry. I share number 3 with you as Growing up, I had pictured myself with lots of kids. It was very disappointing, but life has still been good and I am thankful.

  3. The iris is such a pretty flower, such a happy addition to any bouquet. Good choice!

  4. Irises are so dramatic! On my next trip to see my sister (in Blacksburg) we're going to take a trip through the Parkway--it's kind of a tradition to go at least a little way.

  5. I like your picture of your picture. I should take a picture of it an post it on my wall so that I could say that I took a picture of a picture of a picture (is that right or should there be one more picture?). Have a great Valentine's Day!

  6. That was a nice class trip, we went nowhere. We were suppose to go to Washington DC in 1967 but because of the Vietnam war protests the trip was canceled

  7. I loved the Blue Ridge Parkway so beautiful!! the Smokies are breath taking. we got to go to Six Flags
    over TX for our Senior Trip I have beautiful multi colored Iris'S think they mixed with each other cant wait for them to bloom so can share pics with you>
