Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "In essentials, unity; in other things, liberty; in all things, charity." (slightly revised from Richard Baxter)

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Paul: Beef stroganoff. Shou-Ching: chocolate.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. Shou-Ching: Paul's most noticeable trait is his wisdom. Paul: Shou-Ching's most noticeable trait is her generosity and courage; like the US Marines there is "no better friend."

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. In speaking, Paul: "uh," "you know"; Shou-Ching: "dumb," "ridiculous," "great," "awesome."

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. If this could be a fantasy superpower, maybe something that could be called "teleteros" -- the power to observe molecules and cells at work in the mind's eye -- this would speed up science and medical diagnosis! Of normal human talents, Shou-Ching would like to play the piano; Paul would like to be able to sing along.
