What is your favorite American city?

Tell us about your tattoos.
I have two. The yin/yang symbol on my right big toe, and the eye of Horace inside of a sun on my stomach. These were my first permanent symbols of rebellion.

What is your favorite song to sing in the shower?
“What is This Thing Called Love,” as sung by Sarah Vaughn.

What do you think about the war in Iraq?
I believe the War in Iraq is senseless and has destroyed too many lives.

What song and artist would people be surprised to know you dig?
Nickelback’s “How You Remind Me.”

What is your favorite late night snack?
A bowl of “Honey Nut Cheerios.”

What is your favorite scene in a movie?
My favorite scene is from Spike Lee’s “Mo’ Betta Blues.” Denzel Washington (Bleek) knocks on Joie Lee’s (Indigo) door after his life has been in a downward spiral for a year. Indigo answers, allowing him to explain himself. Eventually, she asks him what he wants from her. He says, “I want you to save my life.”

What is your airplane ritual? IPod? Sleep? Sweat Pants? Spill the beans.
I usually wear sweats and sneakers on the plane. I’ll take a good book to read for company. If it’s too long of a flight, give me some cranberry and vodkas please! (LOL, just kidding.)
