What comes to mind when you see the color orange?
A whole variety of orange things – oranges, an orange sari blowing in the wind against an azure sky, orange petals on a tigerlily, orange woven placemats, a room with the walls painted orange and the sound of children laughing in the distance.

Did you ever get in trouble while you were in school? If so, what was it for?
Once. Junior kindergarden. I was 4 and I was just starting school for the first time. I remember I was playing with something and a boy came along and tore it out of my hands (and yes – I remember struggling to hang on to it) and hit me. I was stunned for a moment that someone would do such a thing, so I followed him over to where he was playing and hit him back. The teacher only saw that last bit, and I was the one who had to sit in a corner. I hope life has dealt that little brat what he deserves.

Which topping(s) make up your perfect pizza?
Goats milk cheese that is made like regular mozzerella cheese (I’m lactose-intolerant) and chicken (also allergic to pork and I can’t really have sausages as milk or buttermilk is usually used as a binding agent) and black olives and seasoning. (No green peppers either, as I’m allergic to bell peppers too.) Needless to say, I don’t eat pizza anymore. Unless Joanna makess one of her special creations, but even since the last time I’ve had one of her pizzas, I’ve developed the allergies to pork and bell peppers. Sigh.

Main Course
Do you believe in UFOs/aliens/etc.? Why or why not?
No. Now I’m not saying that life doesn’t exist elsewhere, but I don’t think we’re going to get visited by anything. Space is vast. There is a ton of empty space. I don’t think a lot of folks realize just how small we are and how much empty space there is. There is a great description of this in Bill Bryson’s fantastic book, A Short History of Nearly Everything.

What color is your bedspread/comforter/quilt?
It’s tan with light brown and sage green designs on it. The designs are very faded – I think if you look closely you can tell that it’s grape vines….
