A. Never give up, never surrender! - Galaxy Quest

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

A. I would have loved to meet Amelia Earhart. That lady had some moxy. I admire the women in history who managed to break with tradition. If I had anything to say to her, I'd probably tell her to take care in the South Pacific, because it would have been great to see what she would have accomplished had she continued on with her life.

A. Mary Shelley

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. If I could do anything, I'd design habitats and exhibits for zoos.

A. I love gardening.
