Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. Me, only better. More focused, more organized, more loving, more able to Just Say No to More Books. Failing that, when I grow up I would like to be a well-fed cat in the sunlight.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. Broccoli, steamed lightly, with a little lemon. Or Brussels sprouts, small ones, please, cooked only until they're bright green. Or Golden Globe tomatoes, raw. But I couldn't eat only one thing for the rest of my life. I would die of chocolate withdrawal.
Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
