What is your least favorite nickname?
What has been a turning point in your life?
The birth of each of my children.
What was your favorite pet?
I had a California Kingsnake that I caught when I was in Jr. High School in the early 90's. It had been run over by a car, and was laying in the road. It survived and thrived in captivity for nearly 20 years, and died last summer.
Proudest moment as a 5-year-old?
When I was 5, I spent the entire year in a wheel chair due to a bone disease. I hated the wheel chair because it kept me from playing on the playground like the other kids my age. My proudest moment came when my time in the wheel chair came to an end, and I was able to play on the swings with my friends.
