Tracy Thompson
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Don't take life so serious, son. It ain't nohow permanent." Walt Kelly

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Those clerks at Home Depot who interrupt your shopping to ask you if you need help finding something, and then you tell them what you're looking for and they have even less of an idea where it is than you do.

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

A. Snorkling in the Virgin Islands would be pretty nice.

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

A. I would be the actress who plays Brittany in "Glee." I'd love to know how it feels to have a smokin' hot body and to be totally at home in it, which she obviously does.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Same as most people's: that I'll lose someone I love. Also every mother's: that I'll die before my kids are ready to do without me.
