All About That Bass

1) This song is body positive. In that spirit: What physical feature would you never change, no matter what? I would never change my mouth

2) The lyrics mention how often the media uses Photoshop to present a more ideal female form. Is Photoshop on your computer? If so, do you know how to use it? I don't know how to use Photoshop

3) She also sings about Mattel's Barbie doll. According to Toys R Us, this year's best-selling doll is not Barbie but Disney's Elsa. Have you seen Frozen? I have seen Frozen, although I enjoyed it, it is not my favorite

4) In the video, Meghan dances merrily around her twin bed with its pink head/footboard. Describe your bed to us. my bed is a double with a 1950s pressed board headboard with two sliding doors on either side and a shelf in the middle--it was my parents' until they got a king size bed

5) Ms. Trainor began writing songs when she was 11. Would you find it easier to write lyrics or music? lyrics

6) Meghan recently performed "All About that Bass" on the CMAs with country star Miranda Lambert. Who is your favorite country singer? Dolly Parton

7) In September, Meghan had to cancel several concerts because of throat trouble. Are you battling a cold, cough or sore throat this morning? no health concerns today

8) Meghan was born in Nantucket, MA. "Nantucket" is an Algonquian name that means, "faraway island." How did your town get its name/what does it mean? my town has a french name--because of the river and stream that twist around it, making it almost an island

9) According to the National Weather Service, between rain and snow, winter brings Nantucket the most precipitation it sees all year. How is the weather where you are today? it is 29 degrees and mostly cloudy, and the wind is cold

My brother and sister-in-law was up your way a couple of weeks. They went to an Episcopal church meeting meeting of some time. It was over a 7 hour bus drive.

Your headboard sound like one I had when I was a teen. Mom though I needed a bedroom set. Mr BC and I used it the first years of our marriage....then traded it for a king as well.

My hubby had a bed like that when we first met. It was hard to prop up on it to read because it was open where there were no doors.

My mom has a headboard like that, and like Harriet, it's hard to lean back if you're in the middle because it was open. Everyone fights to be on the edges!
