Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Don't sweat the small stuff!" I'm also a fan of: "Do crazy things with your hair while you still have hair to do it with."

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. I'm a really big fan of New Yorker writer Emily Hahn. Born in 1905, she loved to write and loved to travel and was a real fast talking dame. She worked for the Red Cross in the Congo and lived with a tribe of Pygmies, she lived in Shanghai during WWII and had a pet gibbon (she dressed him in a tuxedo!), and she wrote 54 books and more than 200 articles for The New Yorker. What a life!

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Self-centeredness

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Regrets are a waste of time!

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. Just one? Well, I hate talking things out, I'm stubborn and I can be way too competitive.
