When are you most alert, morning or night?

O wild and wondrous midnight,
There is a might in thee
To make the charmed body
Almost like spirit be,
And give it some faint glimpses
Of immortality!

Your most loved Beatles song and why? ‘I Wanna Hold Your Hand’ – my first clammy gesture of affection (Marian, where are you now?)
 
If you’re trapped on a deserted island with a genie and 3 wishes, what would your 3 wishes be? –  a seed, a cow and the Library of Congress.
 
Do you have a recurring dream? If so, what is it? – Yes, and none of your business.
 
What’s your favorite mode of travel? Trains, planes, cars, subways, etc…why? – Car: independence, convenience and laziness.
 
Any piercing or tattoo? – Left ear stud (tiny diamond) but no tattoos (yet)
 
What did you eat for lunch today? – Tuna sandwich on wholegrain with a squirt of mayo and that whatchacallit good-cholesterol spread.
