What did you do last night?
I had dinner at my parent’s house.
What do you usually eat for breakfast?
Cold cereal or toast and juice
How many hours a night do you sleep?
Sleep? That’s a hard question. It depends on how much time I spend tossing and turning. I’m usually in bed for about 7 hours.
What is your favorite hour of the day/night and why is it your favorite?
During the weekday my favorite hour is 5pm. On the weekends it’s the early morning hour when everything is still quiet.
Where do you live now?
In Sacramento, Ca.

Yes, most of the time. It usually cools down at night.
What did you do in the years right after high school?
I went to BC and worked for a couple of years at the Kern County Gun Club. The pay was lousy but it was probably one of the best jobs I’ve had.

Is it the job you thought you would have when you were back in High School and you contemplated the future?
It’s at least similar to what I was interested in.
If you could have any job in the world what would it be?
Good question. I think I ask myself that about 10 times a day. I think I’d like to go study crocodiles in India.
What was your happiest day last year?
You expect anyone to remember what they did last year? Sometimes I can’t even remember what I did last week. I guess I’m getting old.
What is your biggest regret from the last 20 years?
Not really doing all the things I wanted to do.

What is one of your favorite memories from high school?
Winning the spirit stick at the Home Coming Rallies 4 years in a row.

Try not to let what others think of you dictate what you do.

Why do you want to attend a high school reunion?
I have no idea.

Spicy Mexican food.
Are your parents still alive? How are they doing?
Yes. They are doing well. They are very busy in their lives.

If you won the lottery what would you do with the money?
Help my family out, quit my job, travel, go study crocodiles in India.

I do like Gilmore Girls, but I’m kind of on a sabbatical from TV at the moment.

I like to joke around a lot more.
In what ways are you the same from high school?
I’m still pretty quiet around people I don’t know very well.
Tell us about three of your happiest experiences since leaving high school.
Paying off my first car loan.
Spending a year in ST. Croix as a Nanny. The geography was fabulous. We lived right on the beach and had a swimming pool as well. I got to kayak in the ocean and often watched the Navy conduct war games right outside our back door.
Getting a free trip in a bi-plane.
I’ve had lots of other happy experiences, but those are the only three I can think of right now.
What do you like most about yourself?
I’m pretty easy going. I have a sense of humor (or at least I think I do) and I love to joke around.
What would you most like to change?
I would love to be able to yell at people sometimes.
Do you talk on your cellphone while driving?
Well, not unless I try and borrow one from the driver in the car next to me. Consider me as living in the dark ages. I don’t even own a cell phone.
Tell us something that very few people know about you.
I’m incredibly fascinated with crocodiles and alligators. I’m not sure why.
What would you like to happen at the reunion? What would leave you satisfied? What do you NOT want to happen at the reunion?

It was the most entertaining thing I’ve done so far today.
