Where do you get your news from -- cable news channels, online sources, radio? When you hear a story that you find interesting (or maddening), do you immediately go searching for more stories about it?

Twitter. I'll usually things there, click a link (I follow CNN and the NY Times) and from there I'll ferret more information. I usually turn on Headline at some point during the day and will typically watch at least one cycle.

What name do you wish you had?

I'm actually pretty content with my name. It's different, without being too different.

So sad to hear about Whitney Houston's untimely death. Her music was the soundtrack to my youth. When I think of some of my fondest childhood memories a song of her's is involved.

I still remember rocking out in the car this with my mom...


One of the last movies my Grandma and I saw together in the theater...


I hope in death she finds the peace that it appears she didn't have in life.

When was the last time you said thank you?

A few minutes ago to my niece. I make it a habit to say thank you.

As the Wonder Pets song says, "Please and Thank You gets you practically anything you want with a smile." Okay, that may not be true, but a little bit of gratitude and kindness can take you a long way.

Writer's Block: Fantastic plastic

Would you consider having plastic surgery?

I'd consider it. Nothing drastic and probably nothing done to my face(although that may change as I age.) I've lost and gained a bunch of weight so there are things I'd like to nip, tuck, and tighten. However, it is surgery, which comes with a lot of risks.
