Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. I'm not sure, but I do know that most people will have known me for like, six months before one day they're standing next to me and suddenly realize, "Whoa! You are SHORT! I had no idea!" My secret: big shoes, bigger personality. ... I think that's also Pee-Wee Herman's secret, but whatever.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. I guess I'm at my happiest when I feel like I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be at that given moment, whether it's early morning in bed reading a great book while drinking a fresh cup of hot coffee, or smashed into a packed subway in a foreign city, holding hands with the one I love. It's that feeling where there's no thought of being anywhere else. I'm describing contentment, aren't I? Maybe that's what makes me happy. Oh, whatever. I could be exhausted, freezing and hungry, but if someone's making me laugh, I promise you I'm happy.
