Saturday 9- Love Story


Love Story


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

1) The lyrics tell us about a romantic summer night on a balcony. Does your home have a balcony?  no, I have a single a story home.

2) Taylor Swift sings that her father warns her boyfriend to stay away, but she sees him anyway. Tell us about a time you defied your parents.  When I was college age, but home for the summer, I stayed out too late a few times.  I did not defy my parents very often.

3) The castle in this video looks European, but it's in Arrington, TN. Castle Gwynn is the site of the annual Tennessee Renaissance Fair. This May the festival will be back, and among the items food vendors are offering are Scotch eggs. When did you most recently eat eggs, and how were they prepared?  It has been a couple of weeks and they were fried.

4) Love Story is also the story of Jenny and Oliver in a book by Erich Segal and a movie starring Ali MacGraw and Ryan O'Neal. Are you familiar with either the book or the movie?  I do not believe so.  It sounds good though.

5) Taylor was born in Reading, PA. which is home to the Reading Railroad, one of the four railroads featured in Monopoly. Without looking it up, can you name the two most expensive Monopoly properties?  I cannot.  It has been many years since I played Monopoly.

6) When she's not performing on stage, Taylor likes to keep it casual and prefers to wear cowboy boots. Tell us about your favorite footwear.  I like to wear my tennis shoes.

7) Taylor's brother, Austin Swift, is an actor and producer who studied photography at college. Think about the last picture you took. Did you use your phone, tablet or camera? (Feel free to share it, if you'd like.)  phone
8) In 2008, the year this song was popular, the Emmy Award winning show Breaking Bad premiered. Were you a fan?  never watched it.
9) Random question: You and your best friend sit down to write the story of how/when you met. Do you think the stories would be almost the same or quite different? (In other words, will you two remember the event the same way?)  I am not sure.  I think they would be a little the same.


  1. Hi Lori:
    Fried eggs seem to be a popular answer for #3.
    I love wearing my Sketchers tennis shoes.
    Have a nice Saturday.

  2. Love Story was such a sad movie.

  3. In retrospect, when I think of the minor infractions that made my dad CRAZY, I smile. I got decent grades in high school, went to church more often than he did, was a virgin when I graduated and never did drugs. On balance, I think he was pretty lucky with me!

  4. Like I was just telling Terri, I am my parents greatest disappointment--to which they still say...anyways, I enjoyed your answers. Have a beautiful weekend. smiles

  5. Sunnyside eggs are my favorite. My husband always, and I mean ALWAYS says "ewwww, raw eggs", lol. All that lovely yolk on toast or taters is the best. He cooks eggs to death. Uggg.

  6. I'm not surprised you were a "good girl." That still shines through so much in your posts. I'm sort of glad you pushed the limits once in a while, though. We all need to test our wings a little.

    1. I tested my wings a lot in college when I was living at the college. I found myself seeing older people at bars and hoping I did not end up that a bar as an older person. Hahahahaha As if bars are for 20 year old's only.

  7. Another fun Sat9! I enjoyed your answers, Lori. I'm surprised at how many people haven't watched Breaking Bad! It was really big and surprisingly good. Have a great weekend! xo

  8. We should do a little Blog Friends Book Club and read Love Story together! :)

  9. I like KG's idea! A bloggy friends book club. That would be cool. I haven't played Monopoly in a very long time.

  10. I almost never defied my parents either. You and I were "good" girls!

  11. Happy Monday Lori! Hope you had a good weekend. Just popping in real quick... Hugs!

  12. I was the same growing up... pretty much a 'good girl' :)

    May the 4th be with you today, Lori! heehee.
