Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Every experience, good or bad, is a priceless collector's item.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I'm...tall?

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. The ability to become invisible and/or non-corporeal at will. Oh, you mean like a real actual talent? I'd like to be able to play a guitar without sawing chunks out of it and rearranging the strings.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. ANY person or ANY thing?? That's got to be the most general question that's even possible to ask. But....probably a T-Rex.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Eve, of Adam and Eve. And I would say, "Hey. Hey! Put it down. Put it down...and walk away. Good girl."
