My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. "Don't take life so serious, son. It ain't nohow permanent." Walt Kelly
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. I have always wanted to be a back-up singer for a Motown group like the 1960s-era Supremes. Obviously, this involves not just acquiring a new talent, but time travel as well.
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.
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. 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.
