The Theme From Love Story

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 _____________________." celebrating each other for who you are and not who you want to be.

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? I do not enjoy the brutal temperatures we are currently experiencing, nor do I enjoy shoveling snow or slippery roads; however I do love how it looks pristine and glistening

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? if someone came to me for money they would be seriously disappointed, although I would loan it 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? My students had some home made goodies in class yesterday to celebrate impending vacation

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) I say shit most often, but I use curse acronyms often (WTF--stuff like that)

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? I don't feel my age and I've been told I don't look my age

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. I enjoy the chemistry between Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks

8) Red is the signature color of Valentine's Day. Are you wearing red right now? my scarf has some red but I am wearing purple

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? that's a toss up! I think I would like to be surprised.

I do literally and often mutter, "What the fu ..." letting the offense trail off. Maybe I should do it more. While I don't beat myself up over my bad language, I'm not proud of it, either.

" I don't feel my age and I've been told I don't look my age." Blogging keeps us young!

I forgot about Meg Ryan. Man she used to be so good!

Yah, Meg was a good romcom actress.
We had a Vday exchange at school on Thursday as well. Candy, candy, candy, but no baked goods, darn it! Enjoy your nice long weekend!

Meg Ryan used to be one of my favorite actresses, and then she sort of disappeared. I curse far too much. My friends find it amusing because they know *they* can curse around me and I won't say anything.

I'm okay with the bitter cold as long as there is no ice on the ground. Ice is my nemesis
