10. What was your most recent trip of more than 50 miles? Two years ago we traveled up to New Hamshire for a family reunion. Snore.

11. What's the best bargain you've ever found at a garage sale or junk shop? Clothes. Hands down. Shoes too. There is a gold mind out there of that stuff, you just have to have patience and look frequently.

12. Where were you on September 11, 2001? I was standing in line at the grocery store, when an announcement came over the intercom system, telling everyone what had happened. I went right home, to check it out myself.

20. Describe something that's happened to you for which you have no explanation. I was going up a staircase from the French Underground train system to the upper level. It was a small spiral stairs with damp stone walls. I suddenly felt a sense of terror come over me and panic. It immediately went away when I reached the top. There was absolutely no reason for me to feel that way and I have yet to ever feel that way again. I remember it as clear as day because it was so bizarre.
