What is the best pick me up that you know of?  To shake you out of the blues?

I bet trampoline jumping tops this list. Can anyone really stay crabby while sproinging up and down, wind in hair, arms pinwheeling wildly? I doubt it. Not that I’ve ever tested this theory.

What would be the title of your memoir?

I Sure Talk A Lot of Smack for Someone Who’s Used GPS in Her Own Neighborhood: A Memoir.

Where do you like to go when you eat out?

There’s a local pizza place that makes a mean gluten free pizza (way more than one, actually). I’ve only enjoyed their takeout so far but BrightSide tells me it shares space with Smitty’s (our local Ben & Jerry’s) and serves lots of craft beer on tap. I’m looking forward to visiting because good pizza + good drinks + beyond good ice cream = heaven.

Do you believe in luck?

Yes. I believe the life I was born into, the circumstances I was born into, has everything to do with luck. My focus and hard work took me places but I’d be a fool to think I’m responsible for everything I’ve achieved in this life.

Aside from necessities, what is one thing you couldn’t go a day without?

Affection. I get my fix in lots of ways – snuggly dogs, hugs from the kids, rumbly Mia purrs, loves from BrightSide. I can’t imagine going an entire day without them.
