1. Favorite Color?

    Hot pink, because it is an exciting, different, and daring color.

  2. If you could live the life of a movie character, who would it be?

    Auntie Mame, played by Rosalind Russell.

  3. How many scoops of ice cream, what kind of cone, and what flavor?

    Always two scoops, on a waffle cone, with pralines and cream.

  4. What does your hometown have that no other town has?

    My hometown is Oak Lawn (a suburb of Chicago). No other town has a high school that has my photo on their Athlete's Hall of Fame wall (first female athlete in the high school with such an honor), and a photo of Michele, as captain, holding our 2nd in State Volleyball trophy!

  5. You have tickets to the theater and all your friends and family are busy. But you can ask anyone else in the world to go. Whom do you invite?

    Carol Burnett. Carol has a great wealth of knowledge regarding theater, so I think it would be awesome to be with her. Also, she has a great sense of humor, and she continues to be an inspiration for me as well as a role model (and she doesn't even know it!). Maybe I will write to her and tell her.
