Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Don't sweat the small stuff!" I'm also a fan of: "Do crazy things with your hair while you still have hair to do it with."

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. I'm a really big fan of New Yorker writer Emily Hahn. Born in 1905, she loved to write and loved to travel and was a real fast talking dame. She worked for the Red Cross in the Congo and lived with a tribe of Pygmies, she lived in Shanghai during WWII and had a pet gibbon (she dressed him in a tuxedo!), and she wrote 54 books and more than 200 articles for The New Yorker. What a life!

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I try to always see the glass half full.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. The women I really admire are the ones who are working two jobs, supporting their families, raising their kids and remembering to brush their hair on top of it.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. Goofballness. It's not a word, I know, but it should be.
