Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Semper Gumby (Always Flexible) It's our family motto.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. A deep and abiding addiction to chocolate in all it's forms.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. If I could be anywhere in the world right now, I would still be in Nashville. It's a great big small town filled with friendly people. If it had a beach, it would be perfect!

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I'm not sure I would recognize perfect happiness. Perfection makes me a little nervous, because I know it can't last. So I would probably be much happier with "Imperfect Happiness." Something along the lines of a string of beach houses with all my friends and family hanging out, playing games and eating chocolate chip cookies, but with the occasional mosquito.

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

A. Chocolate chip cookies, hands down! Only I would add pecans so that I would get a little protein!

We are Nashville.

But, having said that, in the spirit of Halloween, I will share my one and only Ghost Hunt.

I went to college in the middle of nowhere in Tennessee.  And when I say the middle, I mean Murfreesboro is the exact geographic center of nowhere.  We had the obelisk to prove it!  (We also had some weird cult from California who said that it was the geographic center of the Universe, but that's another story.)

Anyway, one Halloween night a group of about six of us dressed up... see more
