Saturday 9: I Will Always Love You

Crazy Sam’s Saturday 9: I Will Always Love You

1) The Bodyguard is the best-selling movie soundtrack ever and this is the song most often associated with Whitney Houston. Is it on your iPod/mp3 player?
Nope, I’m proud to say that I don’t have any Whitney Houston songs.

 2) In the movie, Rachel (Whitney) sings "I Will Always Love You" after she realizes she can never see Frank (Kevin Costner) again. What song reminds you of a past love?

3) Despite the movie's and the song's overwhelming popularity, Whitney Houston was awarded a Razzie Award as the worst actress of 1992. What's the most recent criticism you received?
Oh goodness, I get so much criticism about my blog that I don’t even know where to begin.

4) On the bright side, share the last compliment you received.
Yesterday, one of my former classmates who asked me advice about one of her clients.

5) In the 1980s, when Whitney first burst onto the scene, a trendy woman wore big hair, big bows and big shoulder pads. Can you think of anything you wore that was fashionable at the time, but looking back, makes you cringe? (An embarrassing photo to accompany your answer would be nice!)
Back when a friend got married in the 70s we all wore yellow polyester leisure suits with platform shoes. We looked like canaries.
6) When this song was popular, cell phones were uncommon and Facebook was unheard of. Which has had a bigger impact on your life -- smart phones or social networking?
Since I don’t have a smart phone, I’ll have to go with social networking.

7) Whitney's marriage to Bobby Brown left many people shaking their heads. Whitney and Bobby's daughter recently married the young man who was raised as her brother. Have you ever been in a relationship your friends/family didn't approve of?
No, since I haven’t been in that many relationships.

8) Whitney Houston's grave marker reads, "I Will Always Love You," so obviously her family is very proud of the success of this recording. How would you like to be remembered?
That I left the world a better place than I came into.

9) Whitney was born in Newark, the largest city in New Jersey. It's a major air, rail and shipping hub, and it's in the Eastern Time zone. Have you ever been to Newark ... or any town in New Jersey?
Yes, on Interstate 95; one time my GPS took me through the worst part of Patterson at night and the bridge that it told me to cross was closed (No, governor Christie was not the governor then). It kept on having me drive around in circles and was scary driving past abandoned or burnt out buildings in the dark.

What?! People criticize you for your BLOG? What a ridiculous thing for people to have the nerve to comment on. Ugh. People... I hope you delete and move on! :)

Yellow polyester leisure suits. GULP! But as bad as it sounds now, I bet you were considered very cool at the time.

I'd love to get criticism on my blog. It would mean I'd gotten over being too chicken to post anything controversial

LOL at the Christie comment, and the yellow leisure suits made me laugh. I think your blog is fabulous!

I love your answer for #8--that's what we should all aspire to do, in my opinion.

Why would people criticize your blog? I enjoy reading your blog and it looks nice.
