Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. It's all material!

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I like to laugh a lot.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. People who are late - why should I waste the precious moments of my life waiting for you to get your act together?

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Honesty, humor and good faith.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Is Miss Haversham, from Great Expectations a villain? I think she is, although only because she is bitter and lonely and burning with anger. I read that Dickens based her on a real bride who was jilted on her wedding day and never took off her dress again. What a powerful, compelling dark and dangerous character!
