If you were a carbonated beverage which would you be? Tie between Diet Coke and Lime Seltzer. I suspect the caffeine would break the tie.
How often do you Google yourself? I do have a “Google” alert but mostly it just keeps me up to date on the latest news from Walter Matthau and anyone named Amy.
Who is your favorite working journalist? Judy Woodruff. A class act all around. One of the most generous people I’ve ever known.
Did you see “Twilight” and “New Moon”? If so, who is more your type, Edward or Jacob? Nope. I have enough weird obsessions. I can’t really get into the whole Vampire thing too.
Who would you rather have dinner with – First Lady Michelle Obama or Bestselling Author Sarah Palin? M. Obama. She’d have MUCH more interesting gossip.
When did you last cry and why? Anytime “Abby” from “The Biggest Loser” was featured. Her heart wrenching story (she lost her two kids and husband in a car accident), gave some true “meaning” to this otherwise mindless reality show.
What swear word do you use most often? Goddammit
