Name a color you find soothing.
When the sun has just dipped down over the horizon, leaving us to our own devices for the evening, and half the sky is a dark and mysterious blue and the other half is a lighter, more hopeful blue, there's a blue that binds them together. I guess it's closest Crayola name is Royal Blue. But it's more than just royal to me, more than the stuffy pomp and circumstance that that word intones. It's the color I think of when I hear "My Blue Heaven," the color I tried so hard to dye my hair when I was young and easy to please.
Royal, rambunctious, lovely blue. It's where my peace lives.
Using 20 or less words, describe your first driving experience.
Don't remember exactly, but I do remember my mom freaking out when I got the car up to 30 mph.
What material is your favorite item of clothing made out of?
Cotton. The commercials are cheesy but they don't lie.
Who is a great singer or musician who, if they were to come to your town for a concert, you would spend the night outside waiting for tickets to see?
Paul Simon and Tom Waits.
What is the most frequent letter of the alphabet in your whole name (first, middle, maiden, last, etc.)?
Erm, with my legal name it's A, but with any of my nicknames it's M.
