In honor of Valentine's Day. 

1) The very popular tagline for this movie is, "Love means never having to say you're sorry." Here's your chance to rewrite it. "Love means _nothing if you aren't honest 

2) The movie was famous for a montage of the lovers frolicking in the snow. Do you enjoy sledding, skating, skiing, snowball fights, snowmen, etc.? Or do you just want spring to hurry up and get here? Not anymore. This old gal just aint what she used to be. 

3) In the movie, Oliver asks his father for $5,000. The money is required for wife Jenny's hospital treatment, but Oliver is too proud to tell his father why he needs it. Adjusted for inflation, $5,000 in 1970 is $30,000 today. How much would you be willing to lend a friend or family member without knowing the reason? What ever they needed, if I had it!

4) In the movie, Jenny is the daughter of a baker who owns a little shop in Cranston, Rhode Island. Think of the last baked goods you consumed. Were they home made? Did you buy them from a bakery, the grocery store, or a coffee shop, like Starbucks? I made banana bread for our coffee the other day. 

5) In 1970, when the movie was first released, California's First Lady Nancy Reagan said she liked it but was upset to hear Ali MacGraw's character swear. What's the curse word you use most often? (Feel free to spell it with *'s, in case Nancy Reagan stops by Sat. 9) Shit!

6) Now 75, Ali MacGraw has let her famous hair go gray. She says she's glad to "look like a grown up." Do you feel your age? Or older or younger than your years?idk. depends on the day. somedays i feel l ike i am  30 again. some, I feel 152

7) MacGraw and her Love Story co-star Ryan O'Neal are currently on tour in the play, Love Letters, and they're drawing big crowds of fans who remember them in their famous film. Tell us of another movie couple you felt had romantic chemistry. Not a movie, but Stabler and Benson on SVU. 

8) Red is the signature color of Valentine's Day. Are you wearing red right now? Red boxers and a Buffett Sleeping shirt.

9) Because Valentine's Day is such a big day for chocolate ... would you prefer a large, solid milk chocolate heart or a small box of four assorted chocolates? I think i'll take the 'big en'. 


  1. Somehow, I knew you would have baked something delicious. And I'm jealous, you have a JB sleep shirt! Have a great week of feeling 30, Mair!

    1. I go to the store and stop myself before I buy things knowing I could just make that and save some $$!

  2. Oh-Benson & Stabler have the BEST chemistry!!! Perfect choice!

  3. I'm with you on the aging and winter thing.
