List 2 things you have to be happy about?
I’m alive! I’m alive!
Do you prefer ketchup or mustard or mayonnaise?
Mayonnaise, but not much. Mostly, I like to mix mayo with a bit of ketchup and lemon juice to make Russian dressing. But I don’t use much of anything.
I like (and make my own) tartar sauce. I also make very good shrimp sauce.
If you were to paint a picture of your childhood, what colors would you use?
My real childhood? Dark broody colors. They weren’t my best years.
Do you prefer a bath or shower?
I love baths — especially jacuzzi — but usually I take a shower. It uses much less water … and then, there’s hair. Long hair. There is no way to launder my hair in a bathtub. I’ve tried, but there’s nothing like a hand shower to properly rinse long hair.
At a hotel at which we stayed for a couple of days in Maine, they had a bathroom to die for. The shower had four shower heads. You could aim each of them. That bathroom was as big as my kitchen here. It was a world-class bathing experience. Oh, and the tub was a two-person jacuzzi. Marble everywhere. I wanted to take it home with me. I dream of that bathroom.
