1. IF YOU COULD BE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD YOU BE? Hawaii or Alaska. Very different from one another, but both are remote, exotic, and full of natural beauty.
3. IF YOU COULD BE A SUPERHERO, WHAT SUPER POWER WOULD YOU WANT? I want to be able to fly! (without an airplane, that is)
4. IT'S TIME FOR A SECOND CAREER — WHAT DO YOU CHOOSE? It's kind of related to what I already do — but I would love to be an inspector of hotels for a ratings publication such as Mobil or AAA.
5. WHEN YOUR LIFE STORY IS MADE INTO A MOVIE, WHO SHOULD PLAY YOU? Annette Bening. She's both dignified and funny, and she's a redhead like me.
6. WHAT'S THE BEST BOOK YOU READ IN THE PAST YEAR? Life of Pi by Yann Martel. I love how it frames the question of faith.
