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. 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. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. If Martha Stewart could take a long vacation and I could move into her perfect farmhouse in Bedford, NY (complete with miniature horses and donkeys!) that would be great.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Jay Gatsby - the great American hero!

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. I would love to be able to fly a plane! I'm way too chicken to ever learn, but it must be such an amazing sense of freedom.
