A. "Don't take life so serious, son. It ain't nohow permanent." Walt Kelly
Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. I would be the actress who plays Brittany in "Glee." I'd love to know how it feels to have a smokin' hot body and to be totally at home in it, which she obviously does.
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. I asked my youngest daughter this question, and her reply was, "Your surly demeanor." Book reviewers, take note.
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. Same as most people's: that I'll lose someone I love. Also every mother's: that I'll die before my kids are ready to do without me.
Q. With whom in history do you most identify?
A. Elizabeth I. Yes, I know that makes me sound grandiose. But ever since I saw the Glenda Jackson portrayal in a Masterpiece Theater production back when I was in high school, I've been obsessed.
