Q. What’s your greatest fear?

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. I go through phases, because once I realize I'm over-using something I try to delete it from my vocabulary. Right now it's "Seriously?"
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. Oh, I would so love to be able to draw. I can see it all in my head, but . I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler.
