Randy Susan Meyers
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. “Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.” —GUSTAVE FLAUBERT

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. I'll keep being me--I like my family and friends too much to leave--but I'll be me thinner and without the forehead lines.

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

A. Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat, who saved nearly 100,000 Hungarians during the Holocaust--and lost his freedom, and then life in the process. All I could say is "thank you," and "I am in awe of you."

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I smile (perhaps too much--it makes my face into an apple) and can't help making jokes all the time.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Lying on a beach, under an umbrella, reading an absolutely fantastic book, after swimming, while not worrying about how I look. (Could this ever happen?)
