1. Are you the type of person who jumps into new ventures or do you prefer baby steps? The older I get, the smaller the steps. I have so much more to lose now. Sophia Loren once said, "When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child." So true. So, so true.
2. Who do you feel believes in you the most? Without question, my husband. Even more than myself.
3. When was the last time you were on a stage? 1998, law school graduation.
4. Tell us about the worst boss you ever had. The worst boss I ever had was an attorney who was having an affair with his partner in the firm AND he was cheating on that woman with another woman. A three-time cheater. You never wanted to walk in his office without knocking first, trust me.
5. If the NCAA Men's or Women's Final Four basketball tournament was played in your hometown arena or within easy driving distance from where you live, would you try to attend one of the three games? I try to not even watch them on television, so NO.
6. Of all the clothes you own, what do you feel most comfortable wearing, and why? My Grinch-green sweats with matching sweatshirt. Sometimes I spruce it up with a contrasting colored t-shirt underneath for extra pizazz. Grinch-green suits me -- instant mood alert.
7. On what television show—either past or present—would you like to make to make a guest appearance, and what role would you play? I would like to be a guest patron at Hell's Kitchen. I think I could bring out the soft side of Gordon Ramsay. (swoon)
8. St. Patrick's Day is on Wednesday March 17th. Do you celebrate and wear green? Drink Green Beer? Ignore it? I usually wear green and make my own Irish Soda Bread. I have red hair . . . it is only right.
9. If a leprechaun told you that you could have any amount of money from his pot of gold but it had to be a specified amount for a specified item, how much would you ask for and what would it be for? This is too hard to answer. The "correct" answer would be to ask for all the money in the world to fix everyone's problems. The realistic/revealing answer would be a few million dollars to buy a wonderful piece of ocean front property and create a family retreat for all the generations of my family, past, present, and future.
As always, thanks to Crazy Sam for her weekly Saturday 9.
