Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Treat people right and serve them.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I'd like to think I'm funny. My daughters say I'm a good mom {I hope that's true}.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. An actress (see Wolverine comment above). A model. The voice-over you hear in the grocery store ("Clean-up on aisle seven, Mark. Thank you!"). Sexy Librarian who gets to tell people about books and read but doesn't have to shelve anything. I'd also like to be the lady who holds all the new babies and gives them hugs and kisses after they are born {and cleaned off}.

A. In a home that I own, with my family. I'd like two acres, thank you. Fruit trees and garden. A nice kitchen and a two fireplaces. And a huge office.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. If I could only get one thing, it'd have to be the toffee in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Because after he ate that, it was all he craved. And I'm always craving good food, and I don't want to have to pick just one. The End.
