What is your salad dressing of choice?
Ranch or Blue Cheese

What is your favorite sit-down restaurant?
Probably The Spinnaker in Sausalito.

Crab (assuming it was fresh each day, and not just sitting in the fridge for two weeks!)

What are your pizza toppings of choice?
Sausage and mushrooms

What do you like to put on your toast?
Lots of butter, once in a great while some strawberry jam.

3 that work and another one that doesn’t.

What color is your cell phone?
Red, baby!

Do you have an iPod?
yes.  Also an iTouch.

Left-Handed.  I was an adult before I learned that was supposed to be some sort of an impediment.

My tonsils and five children (though technically I guess I removed the children myself!)

What is the last heavy item you lifted?
The 5 gallon bottle of water for the water cooler.

No–but I fainted twice after giving birth to Paul.


If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
I don’t think so.

If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
Probably Barbara, because when people don’t know me, they usually call me Barbara anyway.

Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000?
Good grief, no. I can’t even dip a tortilla chip in hot sauce!



Thanksgiving – fewer expectations!

Day of the week?
They’re all pretty much the same.

February, I think – not because it’s my birthday but because that’s usually when the blossoms start popping out.  And it's cool then too!

Several "someones"


What are you listening to?
"Touched by an Angel" (on the TV in the background)

Current worry?
Hoping my mother’s birthday party will turn out all right.

To the Sacramento Airport to take Lynn to catch her plane.

What's the last movie you saw?
"UP", a few weeks ago–but I hope to see "Julie/Julia" with some friends this week.


How many pairs of flip flops do you own?
None.  I wear Berkinstocks.

Last time you had a run-in with the cops?
Earlier this year when I got a flat tire on a frontage road with a HUGE pothole. The police came and stayed with me until the tow truck came.

Last person you talked to on the phone?
A girl named Kennedy Wenning, whom I was interviewing for a newspaper article.

Last person you hugged?
Pat, when I left her house this afternoon.

No. That’s why I have caller ID.

If you could change your eye color what would it be?
I’m happy with hazel

Silver Bells

What's on your wish list for your birthday?
World peace and a clean house.

I can barely hoist myself out of the recliner!

6 of one, half a dozen of the other

Not sure what that means, but I’m sure I do.  I never throw any thing away.

Fortunately, yes.

We will probably be at a party with a group of people who were all associated with the Davis Comic Opera Co.
