Would you say you’re more of an extrovert or an introvert?  Extrovert, most of the time.

What’s the phone app you use most? On my phone, it’s email, on my iPad I might have a Candy Crush problem😉

How do you take your coffee?  Don’t hold it against me, I don’t drink coffee

What’s your favorite board game? Tripoly 

What TV show reminds you of your life? Probably Gilmore Girls. I was raised by a single mom and we were close and had a lot of fun together. Big difference though, we were always close to my grandparents.

What makes you feel at peace? I love to be around water – ocean, lake or river.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? The only place I’ve visited that I said I could live is Hawaii.

Do you sing in the shower? Not really, but I’ve been known to break out into song at any time.

If you could have a super power, what would it be? Time travel if that’s a super power, if not fly

What’s your go-to midnight snack? Not a late night eater.

Can you say the ABCs backwards? No.

What song always gets you out on the dance floor?  I do the YMCA hand motions wherever I am and any Gloria Estefan song makes me move

Which meal is your favorite: breakfast, lunch, or dinner? Linner – late lunch/early dinner

Do you like going to the movies or prefer watching at home?  I am definitely a theater girl

What are you currently reading? I’m not a big reader, I do listen to audiobooks. I do read a lot of news stories though. I like to keep up with current events.

Where’s the next place on your travel bucket list and why?  My next scheduled big trip is Japan. It’s been canceled twice so fingers crossed. I’m not ashamed to say one of the big appeals is a side trip to Tokyo Disneyland. I’m a huge Disney fan and I’d love to visit all of the parks. Also, Japan will mark off another continent for me – only Antarctica left. And it may stay that way😉

What’s your favorite ice cream topping?  Caramel

What’s an essential part of your daily routine? Since I retired, I try to walk almost every day.

Do you believe in life on other planets? I think there probably is life on other planets.

What would be the title of your memoir? No way I could focus long enough to write a memoir, it would have to be a Cliff Notes format. (They got me through high school and college.)  

Favorite vacation spot? Myrtle Beach
