Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Don't be too embarrassing.

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

A. I'm not sure if we're talking fictional or real here, but I'll go for an obvious one: Abraham Lincoln. I'd say, "Mr. President, it's an honor." Then, I'd invite him over for cake, or pie, or whatever we had, whatever he wanted. The larder is open to the 16th president.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I try as hard as I can to understand why people do what they do. I don't believe I exactly deserve a medal for that or anything, though.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Esther Summerson.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. I've been working on this questionnaire for at least two or three months. If I finish, that'll probably be it.
