Describe your outlook on life in one adjective:

If you were to die and find out reincarnation was a reality and you were able to choose what you would be reincarnated as, what would it be? Why?
Hmmm...I'd pick someone who was born with good looks, brains, talent, and got all the right breaks in life.

Is there anything that you wish you had accomplished in the last ten years that you haven't? If so, what?
Gotten my weight back to "normal," and gotten married (to Warren).

Describe the perfect cup of coffee.
Made with freshly ground beans, configured with really good nonfat milk and Splenda, not too strong, not too weak, not too hot, not too cold, but good enough that it still tastes good when cold.

You're out for an evening at a club and some drunken fool spills a drink on you and then tries to pretend as though it didn't happen. What do you do?
Scream at the drunk for his or her rudeness at not apologizing, then avoid the drunk like the bubonic plague.

Anyone in your life that you would kill or die for? If it's not too personal, who?
Yes: Lady, Warren, my close friends, my mother, my niece, Warren's parents.

Who is your favorite poet?
Dorothy Parker

If you were only able to have one book for the rest of your life, what would it be? Why?
The Encyclopaedia Brittanica. It's about the biggest thing I can think of, and it'd keep me entertained for a long time.

What was your first car?
If you count the first one I drove as a licensed driver, my parents' powder blue 1968 Volkswagen Beetle. If you count the first car ever in my name, a really ucky red 1979 Toyota Corolla my ex-husband gave me after he bought himself two BMWs. If you count the first car I ever bought, the one I currently drive: a white 1992 Honda Accord EX.

Are you nomadic or settled?
Settled, definitely. I own a house. Before that I owned a condo for over ten years and rented it for a year before I owned it.
