A typical day in my life includes… laughing at you, not with you.  

I was born… Patrick Hernandez – Born to Be Alive – Official Video (Clip Officiel) – YouTube

My favorite thing about Arizona…  those lollipops with the scorpions inside of them.     

I’m listening to… ABBA, Lil’ Kim’s part in Lady Marmalade, Lawrence Welk, Sonny (not Cher), the drummer from the GoGo’s, Harry Styles, Megan The Stallion, old Justin Beiber, not his new stuff.  That’s it.   

My family… knows about us.  They’ve heard.  

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… June Carter Cash.

One thing I cannot live without… spicy pickles.  

When I was younger, I wanted to be… taller.

I’m inspired by… grapes, and what they aspire to become.  

The one person who motivates me is… me. No, you.  Me?  You?  Me, you?  You?  Is it you?  You.  Got it, thanks hon!  

If I could change anything in the world, it would be… the colors in a rainbow, to even out the playing field for color blind people.  

The perfect day would be… spent flash mobbing.  

My first job was… paid under the table.  I hope the IRS isn’t listening.  

My favorite escape… that time I got away from the park ranger after getting caught at the boat launch after dusk.  

My life… is awesome.  But I think my spoiled dog’s life is pretty amazing too.    

I’m currently working on… this questionnaire.  

Always… forward.

Never… not forward. 

Favorite Quote… “you kids better knock it off back there or I swear I will turn this car around right now!”  My Dad said that.  A lot.  

Biggest Dream… traveling back in time and buying Apple, Microsoft, and Amazon stock when it was cheap.  

My Pet Peeve(s)… bad wine, other drivers, people ahead of me in line, people who just can’t be serious for even one second, granola, and spaghetti squash (pick one, are you spaghetti or a squash?).
