Saturday 9- The Sweet Escape

The Sweet Escape (2006)

Unfamiliar with this week's song. Hear it here.

1) This song begins with, "First of all, let me say I must apologize ..." Who most recently apologized to you?  Probably my co-worker Lori.  She didn't do anything wrong.  I think we just had the room a mess and she apologized.

2) Gwen Stefani sings that she acted like "sour milk on the floor." Is there milk in your refrigerator right now? What about non-dairy creamer?  Milk, but no creamer. 

3) In the video, Gwen wears several different pairs of stiletto heels. What are you wearing on your feet as you answer these questions? tennis shoes

4) Mrs. Stefani named her daughter "Gwen" after a stewardess in the book/movie Airport. Who was your favorite character in the book you just read, or movie you most recently watched? Madeline..I am reading Big Little Lies.

5) Gwen is a distant cousin of Madonna's. Are there any performers in your family?   Many years ago there was a singer named K.T. singer I think.  She is related on my mom's side.  We do not actually know her though.

6) In high school, she joined the swim team not because she enjoys swimming but because she wanted to lose weight. Are you doing anything (dieting, participating in an exercise regimen) in order to shed a few pounds? no, but I need to be.

7) Before she became successful, Gwen worked at the makeup counter in a department store. What was the last thing you purchased? Did you buy it online or at a store?  Josh and I went out to a restaurant on Thursday night and had Chinese.  So, food was the last thing I purchased.

8) Gwen has gotten a great deal of publicity for her romance with country star, Blake Shelton. What's your favorite Blake Shelton song?  I do not listen to country, but I do like Blake Shelton on The Voice.  I typically do not love his songs, but maybe God's is pretty good.

9) Random question: Which of these compliments would make you the happiest -- to be called fascinating, or brilliant, or gorgeous?  brilliant...since that would never happen.


  1. K T Oslin. Two Grammy Awards (Best Female Country Vocal Performance and Song of the Year), many songs that charted, a duet with Alabama that went to Number One... an interesting career. Too cool!

  2. I recently watched Big Little Lies and Madeline was my favorite!

  3. I loved KT Oslin back in the day! I really wish she hadn't dropped out of sight. She had a fabulous voice and her version of Hallelujah is the best I've ever heard.

    How bad is it, that I read Big Little Lies somewhere along the way, but I can't remember a thing about it?

    Have a great Saturday, Lori!

  4. "brilliant" implies expectations. I'm too lazy; I'd rather be fascinating.

  5. I know of KT Oslin, lovely voice. Enjoyed your answers, smiles.

  6. I need to lose more than a few pounds

  7. I think you might be sureprised by just howe brilliant you truly are!!! Don't discount yourself!

  8. I don't know any Blake Shelton songs. But I do like him on The Voice.

  9. I think you're pretty brilliant, actually. And incredibly empathetic, which is its own unique brilliance.
