If you were a dog, what breed would you be, and why?
I'd likely be a Boston Terrier. They are my favorite kind of dog. They've got the same color combination as my favorite kind of cat: Tuxedo. Boston Terriers are smart and loyal. They don't bark all that much and they're not terribly large.
What does the color purple make you think of?
Purple is my favorite color. It makes me think of grape soda, luxury, and Elizabeth Taylor's "Passion" perfume that I used to wear in college. Purple looks good on everyone. The Sterling Silver rose is light purple (lavender) and it smells like heaven.
Approximately how long does it take you to get ready each morning?
I take about ninety minutes although I could be ready much quicker if I had to ... I get up at six o'clock and shower in less than ten minutes. I comb out my hair and put on make-up. Then, I take a forty minute cat nap with Lucky Charmz. I drink a glass of juice, dry my hair, brush my teeth, and dress for work.
How many cousins do you have, and are you close to them?
Wow. I have very few first cousins of my own generation. I have four on my mom's side and I'm not that close to them. I have four on my dad's side; I'm close to two of them (Michele and Kirsten). The rest of my cousins are more distant (first cousins twice removed and so on) and most are MUCH older. The oldest of my cousins is 91.
Take your initials (first, middle, last) and come up with something else those letters could stand for. (Example: SFO = Sweet Funny Otter)
