Secret Love

1) In this song Doris admits she's spoken to the stars, "the way dreamers often do." Do you often daydream? well... I go to my happy place, if that's the same thing, during faculty meetings

2) What's the last secret you kept? (It doesn't have to be romantic.) if I revealed it what kind of secret keeper would I be?

3) While "Secret Love" was one of Miss Day's best-selling records, and the song won an Oscar, she did not perform it at the Academy Awards Ceremony. She said she was just too nervous to sing it live before an international television audience and an auditorium full of entertainment professionals. When did you last suffer an attack of nerves? I frequently do

4) Doris' well-publicized attack of Oscar stage fright was unexpected because she began her career as a band singer, performing before live audiences every night. But she reportedly did develop more phobias over the years, including a fear of flying. Is there anything that scares you now, as an adult, that didn't frighten you as a child? crowded places with unstructured time (like the high school cafeteria during lunch)

5) Doris Day made 39 movies between 1948 and 1968. She said one of her favorite things about filmmaking was working with costume designers on her wardrobe. Do you enjoy shopping for clothes? I LOVE it!

6) Doris confessed that when she had to lose weight for a role, she gave up ice cream. If we checked your freezer, would we find any ice cream? you would, indeed

7) In 1985 she hosted a cable show called Doris Day's Best Friends. She used the show as a platform to promote pet adoptions and animal welfare. Most of the guests were celebrity friends who reportedly donated their salaries for appearing on the show to Doris' pet foundation. Did you more recently ask a friend for a favor, or perform a favor for a friend? I most recently performed a favor for a friend

8) For more than 20 years, Doris co-owned the Cypress Inn in Carmel, CA. The Inn expects to continue on without her, and maintain the pet-friendly policies she introduced. Have you ever traveled with your dog or cat? sadly, I do not have my own doggo

9) Random question: What's the last thing you complained about? I used #strangerdanger as a tag on Instagram from my laundromat adventures

Ice cream! It's what can take me to my happy place.
Wish you could have a doggo. You would give one a good home but I understand why you don't have one.
I'd love to have a clothes shopping buddy! I guess smart phones would help with distance but it's just not the same.

I do NOT miss the laundromat. No, not at all!

I despise laundromats. Strangerdanger indeed. (You're not going to find George Clooney in a laundromat.)

I find myself in my happy place during faculty meetings too. Hee, hee! I loved your answers! Have a great weekend!
