If at least twenty-five people answer these questions and either give a link to their blogs in comments below or send the answers to me via email, Facebook or Skype, I will have a drawing and contribute an amount equal to the number of responders (up to a limit of $100) to the winner’s favorite charity. Please let me know if you do not wish to have your answers published, as I might share some of them on my blog. Okay, the race is on! I’m going to be very disappointed if no one plays along.
Who in your opinion is the sexiest man (if you are a woman) or woman (if you are a man) who ever lived?
It’s so difficult for me to answer this. I’ve only known a small number of men (and wouldn’t pick any of them, lol). I hate to go by looks alone, if we’re talking celebs, since my working theory is that the better looking a man is, the more of a jerk he’ll likely turn out to be. But super funny, super smart men (my idea of sexy qualities) can be jerks too, even if they aren’t great looking. Okay, fine. I’m going with Jon Bon Jovi who is super hot, a great singer, appears to have been true to his wife all these years, and doesn’t boycott Israel like other idiot celebs.
What favorite food do you rarely eat and why?
Seafood fettuccine; it’s expensive.
What would your closest friends be most surprised to find out about you?
That I’m not as liberal as people assume just because I’m pro-choice.
Who is the most famous person you ever met and what were the circumstances?
Not exactly “met,” but I was buying a Sunday paper at a newsstand in Beverly Hills in 1988, and Mick Jagger jumped out of a limo to buy one too. He waited in line behind me like a normal person, and when the guy in front of me knocked over a stack of cassette tapes, Mick and I helped him pick them up.
What famous person would you most like to have as a close friend and why?
Jeff Bezos, so he could more favorably algorithmize my Kindle books.

A warm coat from my Chicago days, but I’ve hardly worn it since.
What object in your house holds the most nostalgic value for you?
A bunch of things my daughters made and bought for me, photo albums, plus a few keepsakes from my mom too.
What question do you wish you had asked a deceased relative but didn’t?
I wish I’d asked my mom for the info she had on other family members.
Who in the world (relative or not) do you most resemble?

Comfy black moccasins… cuz they’re comfy and go with almost everything.
