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. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. Cleopatra. Once I held a snake at Gatorland and I also used to wear too much black eye-liner.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I'm pretty good at do-overs, both giving them and taking them.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Lice. I've never had them, but...yikes.  I'm shuddering and itching just thinking about it.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. People who take themselves too seriously.
