Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Love is a verb." Also, "You don't get what you don't ask for."

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. Impulsivity.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Selfishness, and a lack of compassion for others. But I have grammatical pet peeves, too, lots of them! "Comprised of." Using adverbs improperly. "Like" when "such as" or "as if" is correct. Failing to use the subjunctive tense when it is appropriate -- as in, "Dance like no one is watching." Yikes!

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Waking up every morning excited about the day. Going to sleep at night excited about the next day. In between: dancing.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. "Stars Fell on Alabama," "Mann ke Manjere," "Beirut" by Fairuz, "Mustang Sally," and, for karaoke purposes, "Mack the Knife."
