Love & Music
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Be kind to yourself. (My mom says it to me all the time, possibly because she knows I need permission.)
Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?
A. Sorry folks, this is going to be long, but I love all genres of music (except that New Age crap they play on NPR on Saturday night, because clearly that is not music) so I have to make multiple lists. Classical: Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1, Mozart Requiem, Bach Chaconne, Borodin String Quartet No. 2, Sibelius Violin Concerto. Next list--Songs I sing with my kids: O Canada, America the Beautiful, anything by Anne Murray or Sharon, Lois & Bram. (Incidentally, number one artist requested by my kids that I refuse to play or sing: Lady Gaga.) Last list--Songs that make me smile and turn up the volume: King of New Orleans by Better Than Ezra, The Only Exception by The Paramores, Rolling in the Deep by Adele, Sk8er Boi by Avril Lavigne (don't judge me), I Want it That Way by Backstreet Boys (I said don't judge me). I could go on with the lists, but instead I think I'll end with the number one song most likely to make me punch somebody in the face: Crimson and Clover by I don't know who and I refuse to google it.
Q. What do you regret most?
A. That hotel time share presentation--THREE HOURS of my life that I will NEVER GET BACK.
Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. I'd be my husband, because then I'd still be us, but I wouldn't have to be me. It's complicated.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. Inside Tina Fey's brain.
