Saturday 9- All of Me


All of Me

Saturday 9: All of Me (2013)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) John Legend sings he loves his woman's "perfect imperfections." Tell us something quirky or imperfect about a loved one that you would not change.  I have a hard time with calling something an imperfection or a quirk.  It is just something that is part of a person, whatever that may be.  That imperfection or quirk is what makes that person perfect just the way they are.
2) John wrote this love song to his wife, Chrissy Teigen. The couple recently lost their baby after pregnancy complications. To whom did you most recently send a sympathy (or "thinking of you") card or message?  We go to church with one of our local weathermen.  I sent him a sympathy message because he recently lost his dog Sarge...(this week in fact).  It was heartbreaking.  He has shared his dog Sarge with the viewers over the years, so everyone is sad.

3) While adventurous in his creative career choices, John admits his taste in food leans toward the tried and true. His favorites are chicken (rotisserie or fried), macaroni and cheese, and steamed vegetables. What's on your weekend menu?  I am thinking chili for the weekend.  I am planning homemade mac and cheese for Thanksgiving and John Legend has a great recipe for mac and cheese.  I guess it is pretty good.  I pinned it on Pinterest.  We will see.   I haven't decided on a recipe yet.

4) When he was growing up, John's mother, Phyllis, helped support the family as a seamstress. Are you any good with a needle and thread?  no, I can only do small hand stitching like buttons or hems.  I have sewn on patches...small things like that.

5) As a child, he was such a big fan of Andy Griffith and Matlock that he wanted to be a lawyer. If you grew up to have the same occupation as the TV character you liked best as a kid, what would you be doing?  I would be in the oil industry.  Who am I?  I didn't watch much tv, but I loved this show.

6) John is a judge on The Voice. Do you watch that show? Or America's Got Talent, or American Idol I watch The Voice and as I watch I text with a friend who is also watching about who we like that is singing and what we think about the hosts because they are so funny.  We have done this for several years to keep in touch.

7) In 2013, the year this song was popular, twin baby pandas were born at Zoo Atlanta. Their panda parents had been given to the US as a gift from the Chinese, with the understanding that any offspring would be given to China. So, in 2016, the panda cubs were flown to a Chinese conservation center. They had a hard time adjusting at first, confused by jet lag, unresponsive when spoken to in Chinese, unimpressed by their new diet. Have you ever found yourself similarly overwhelmed when you traveled far from home? (BTW, the pandas are doing just fine now in their permanent Chinese home.)  I have never traveled that far from home and every time I have traveled I have had a great time.

8) Also in 2013, The Pope posted his first tweet. What social media platforms do you regularly use?  facebook and Gracebook.  I have others, but I do not necessarily use them all of the time.  When I was part of the country graphics community I met a lot of talented people.  One of those people is the creator of Gracebook.


9) Random question: Have you ever a) written something on a public wall or b) carved anything into a tree of bench?  When I was in high school I wrote on a bathroom wall at a rest stop.  That was the only time.  It grosses me out to think I did that.


  1. #5 -- The oil industry? Was the show Dallas?

  2. Chili sounds good! Losing a pet is so hard and you and I both know that. I may have to check out Gracebook. I am trying to cut back on my social media. I sure miss our country community. It was fun, uplifting and creative. That is how we met over 15 years ago!

  3. I enjoyed your answers today.
    We have a similar situation on the Random Question.
    Have a good Saturday my friend.

  4. Well, I'm guessing you'd be someone on Dallas, but not sure which character. I liked that show, too, and rarely missed it. I was so excited when they brought it back a few years ago, but it was really disappointing. Not the same at all. Chili sounds very good. I may have to go buy some beans and make it tomorrow.

    1. JR Ewing was my favorite. He was such a great bad guy. I did watch the re-boot and I didn't hate it, but when Larry Hagman passed away, it wasn't the same.

  5. So many rebels this week, grin and laughter.

    Gracebook? I will have to look at that, smiles. Have a great day friend. smiles

  6. Loved your answers, esp. #1. Have a great week!

  7. I had to laugh that the TV show was Dallas--I was thinking the Clampets on Beverly Hillbillies. :D

    1. That is hilarious! I loved that show too and that one makes more sense for where I live, but no, it was Dallas. :)

  8. I laughed at Kwizgiver answer of Clampets on Beverly Hillbillies.
    And I also wondered about Gracebook because I googled it and it didn't have anything about it.

  9. Another rebel writing on the bathroom wall! Goodness. We are such a bad lot, us Sat 9'ers. LOL. If that the worst we did, we came out ok.

  10. Love your first answer. It's perfect. And I wish I'd had the moxie to write on a bathroom wall. lol
    I loved to watch on "The Voice" on YouTube just for the double takes of the judges when a phenomenal voice emerged from the singers. It was thrilling.

  11. I love your answer to #1. I used to have a dog names Sarge. Always sorry when someone loses a beloved pet. I enjoyed your answers, Lori!
