Carmen Rodrigues
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Improbable? Possibly. But impossible? Now that's a whole other story.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Historical? Let's just make that any character... and that would be Mr. Darcy, and I hope to say: Wow, you're even hotter than I imagined.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. People say, "My what big eyes you have!" And I say, "Yes, the better to spy on you with."

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Forgetting to hit save. (And yes, this is my second attempt to complete these questions.)

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

A. Okay, this one's really serious: I'd be a dancer. A ballerina to be specific.
