  1. If you had to be trapped in a TV show for a month, which would you choose? This might sound really weird, but I’d love to spend a month in the show the Biggest Loser.  Not as a contestant but as an observer.  I’m blown away by the weight loss and transformations that occur on this show and am interested in seeing how the contestants with stand the day in and day out workouts.
  1. What are you reading these days? I am reading “The House in the Sky”. It is a memoir from 2013 written by Amanda Lindhout, about her experience in southern Somalia as a hostage of teenage militants from an Islamist fundamentalist group. It is incredible to read about the ways in which she uses her mind to escape the isolation, torture, hunger and loneliness of this terrible experience. 
  1. Fill in the blank: If you really knew me, you’d know that I’m obsessed with the Olympics. One of the greatest experiences I had was going to the Winter Olympics in Vancouver in 2010.
  1. What is the habit you are proudest of breaking? Or what habit do you want to break? The only thing I can think of is cracking my knuckles, which I did all the time as a little girl.
  1. What is your heritage? I’m American and was raised Jewish. My grandparents were born in Russia and Austria and came to America in the early 1900’s soon after they were born.
  1. What kind of impact do you believe you have on people? I think I make people feel comfortable when they are around me and they then share things with me.  I am a good listener.
  1. What’s the strangest talent you have? I’m sorry to disappoint, but I don’t have a talent.
  1. What is the best compliment you have ever received? I think as a mom feeling responsible for most of the meals at home it always feels good to hear a family member compliment a dish that you’ve made.
  1. Over the course of your life, how many cities have you lived in and which was your favorite? I have lived in 5 cities and my favorite city is Boston, MA where I went to college and lived for a couple years after I graduated.  When I think of Boston I think of fun!
  1. What was the best meal you’ve ever eaten? Were you at a restaurant or at someone’s house? I love breakfast and remember eating warm croissants and café au lait in the south, central part France with my husband about 7 years ago.  I’d say that’s a favorite.
