1. What is your favorite film decade and why?


I think this one. There are exceptions for other eras, like Kubrick and Hitchcock--but if you explore below the surface of the mainstream fluff, I think it's overwhelmingly better today.


2. What is your favorite play--drama, comedy or musical? (Edit:
May not have made that clear. What is favorite play,
regardless of genre?)


I was amazed with the production of "The Lion King" in London a few years ago. It was pure magic.


3. Who is your favorite nonsuperstar athlete (You may have
to tell us what sport)?


Canada Post mail carriers. I envy their endurance.


4. Do you eat mustard or ketchup (or both) on your hot dog?


Both, but ketchup is king. If I had a band, "Ketchup Intravenous" just might be the first single.


5. If you could be born to another culture, what would it be?


Japanese...or some kind of aboriginal culture.


6. What would cause more suicidal thoughts--listening to
opera or listening to country?


Elements of both, but bad country is really bad.


7. What subject did your favorite teacher teach?


"Current Events" in elementary school.


8. Do you think mostly in images, words, sounds or other?


Words and sounds.


9. What astrological sign do you get along with most--whether
you are supposed to or not?


I'm not sure!


10. Besides U2, what musicians do you listen to the most?


Radiohead, Pearl Jam, Pink Floyd, Neil Young....and a whole bunch of other, mostly quirky, artists.

1. I'd rather be in a blissfully happy relationship that would make
all the other things less important.

2. Vanessa Redgrave because she is absolutely incandescent
and Michelle Phillips circa Mamas and the Papas, that
brief period.

3. Biggest mistake--getting into two riproaring arguments
with my father over stuff that does not matter. Spending too
much money. Best thing--reevaluating myself, cutting loose
most of the definitions I've had of myself, trying to look at
things without preconceived notions. Having less opinions.

4. I don't own a camera, so I guess the last time somebody
handed me a camera to take a picture of them.

5. Worst habit--too much sleep, detachment.

6. Genuinely nice peopel--I am fortunate to be surrounded by
genuinely nice people. My parents, my brother, my sister,
my best friend, some coworkers, Mrs. S. If you aren't nice,
you don't stay an important part of my life for very long,
allowing always for the occasional transgressions.

7. Self-respect is more important to me. But I've found
that has often led to respect for others.

8. I think one of the keys to self-esteem is to never allow
other people to define you.

9. Pink clothing. None. Unless you count laundry mishaps
and one cap I was given free.

10. Fluctuating realist, cynic, idealist. But I keep my idealism
carefully hidden.

11. First boyfriend--would rather not recall.

12. Favorite sports teams--NY Mets, AHL Penguins.
Favorite players--past: Jesse Orosco, Steve Howe.
Current: Dennis Bonvie of the Penguins.

13. Last book: Currently reading Michener's Space.

14. Two pairs of jeans. 4 pairs of shoes.

15. $1000. Music and books. And really good concert seats.

16. Don't own a cellphone.

17. What is sexy--physical presence, aquiline noses, broad
shoulders, humor, attitude.

18. Three worst, three best qualities
Worst: detachment, shyness, unwillingness to pursue
something that does not come easy to me.
Best: Humor, patience, irreverence.

Would you rather be rich, a genius, perfectly healthy, or in a blissfully happy relationship? (you have to pick just one)

Well relationship is hopeless, so by process of elimination -normally I would say perfectly healthy but right now I'd have to say rich, it would get me out of the bad situation I'm in and improve most aspects of my life. I'm not all that into money but just for that reason..

If you could look like one famous person who would you pick and why?

I'd shoot for the moon and say Halle Berry-no why really necessary. Gorgeous face, perfect body

What's the biggest mistake you've made so far this year? What's the best thing you've done?

So far most of my mistakes were last year but there's still plenty of time. I'd say maybe crawling back into my shell and repeating negative patterns. Best thing was going to Memphis

What is the last thing you took a photo of? azaleas

What's your worst habit? putting myself down/nail biting (which I had stopped until recently )

Who is the most genuinely nice person you know? A male friend who is so understanding, sensitive, and kind that I sometimes forget he's a man

What's more important to you, self-respect or respect for others?I have to be able to live with myself before I can even deal with others so maybe it's self-respect

What is the key to healthy self-esteem? In my opinion it's the way you are raised, if that doesn't give you healthy self-esteem it's extremely difficult to do it on your own

How many articles of pink clothing do you own, if any? Describe. I went on pink kick last summer for some reason- have a few pink tops, a pair of pink shorts, pink beach sandals and coverup, pink pants, pink tweed blazer and a small pink purse. Good God, hopefully that's all

Do you consider yourself an idealist, a realist, or a cynic? Used to be an idealist, now I'm slightly cynical

What was your first boyfriend/girlfriend's name and what did they look like? Austin, he had blue eyes and jet black hair. He moved away and I was heartbroken-but it was only 2nd grade

What is your favorite sports team? Red Sox What athlete do you admire the most? Tedi Bruschi

What's the last book you read? Dispatches From the Edge by Anderson Cooper

How many pairs of jeans do you own? Shoes? Jeans, I estimate 6 Shoes, estimate 15 or 15-20. Comfortable shoes, I can't wear heels and they make me gigantic anyway

If someone gave you a check right now for $1000 what would you do with it? Ideally pay off some of my credit card debt but the way I feel right now, buy a one way ticket to some place like Hawaii

What's the wallpaper on your cellphone? my dog

What is sexy to you? humility, good sense of humor, intelligence, kindness, sensitivity, being expressive about emotions, having a lovely collarbone/neck area-for some reason that drives me insane

What are your three best/worst qualities?

best- being humble, being sensitive, being stronger than I think

worst - my feelings are too easily hurt, I let the past/other people hurt me too much, don't have enough self-esteem/self-confidence, all that
