My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Be prepared. Be happy. Watch out for skunks.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Cannolis from Boston's North End. Or if you ask me sometime when I'm not hungry: several hours of writing followed by lots of hugs from my family. Plus cannolis.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. Telekinesis. If that's not available, then I'd love to be able to draw well. Or maybe write with my feet. That would be cool.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. Pizza. (Not such a great stretch since I eat that for almost every meal anyway.)
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. I say, "I love you, " to my family a thousand times a day, but I don't think it's possible to overuse those words (at least not if you mean them).

ME: My unicorns would be cool!
MY BRAIN: You just miss your Lisa Frank sticker collection from your Trapper Keeper.
ME: I loved those stickers.
MY BRAIN: Think of something else.
