What I miss most about childhood: Taking a bath, putting on my pajamas, eating a bowl of cereal while watching one last television show before havint go to bed.
What I want to do when I'm ninety: Taking a bath, putting on my pajamas, eating a bowl of cereal while watching one last television show before havint go to bed.
If I could change one verse in the Bible: "Give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread. Otherswise I may have too much and disown you and say who is the Lord, or I may become poor and steal and so dishonor the name of my God" to "If I'm going to be vain at least let me be good-looking. If I can't be good looking, then make me not vain."
Think I like most about being in a hotel room: You always have clean sheets and never have to make your bed.
Thing I like least about being in a hotel room: Trying to figure out how to set the alarm clock.
The conversation I most remember hating with my parents and most dread ever having with my kids: Where are you going? Out. When will you be back? Later. Who will you be with? Friends

Things you can't do to save your life
I can't work a calculator or balance a check book, so I don't have a check book or a calculator cause it's way too hard.
Best gift you've ever received
The Bird Feeder and Bird Watching book from my parents.
Best Advice You've Ever Been Given
From my dad, "If you can live without her, do."
Favorite Classic TV Show
Bonanza. My parents wouldn't let me watch it 'cause it was on too late, but I'd sneak out and lay at the top of the stairs and listen. They finally gave in - I was way strong-willed.
Favorite TV Event
When the Bulls finally won... it was way cool.
I actually like Wilson Phillips and I like to turn left when the sign says you're not allowed to and I also like to drive way too fast.
Most memorable meeting
Having Phil Keaggy introduce me to Mark "Grand Funk Railroad" Farner.
Cartoon Character that reminds you of you
Elmer Fudd -- way too much.
Best way to make you laugh
You go first.
Word or phrase you most over use
Way. I say it way too much.
Question no one has ever asked you
Do you hate being nominated for Dove AWards that you will never win?
